About Electronic cigarettes
More about Intellicig Electronic Cigarettes
What Are Electronic Cigarettes? - Electronic cigarettes are battery powered vaping devices. The term vaping comes from the vapourising process which takes place inside the device. They do not contain tobacco and are not affected by the UK smoking ban. E-cigarettes provide a nicotine hit and the same action as smoking. At Intellicig we offer a wide range of electronic cigarette products and ECOpure e-liquid which is manufactured and tested in the UK.
How Do They Work? - Electronic cigarettes heat a water-based e-liquid inside the device until it reaches the correct temperature to vapourise. The vapour is then inhaled and exhaled in the same way you would smoke a tobacco cigarette. The water-based vapour released quickly dissipates and there are minimal second-hand smoking risks associated with e-cigarettes. At Intellicig we offer quality e-cigarette products which are stringently tested in the UK.
What Are The Benefits of Electronic Cigarettes? - Electronic cigarettes do not contain tobacco and release significantly less of the known harmful chemicals produced when burning tobacco cigarettes. E-cigarettes contain much lower levels of nicotine and only release an odourless water-based vapour. They are exempt from the UK smoking ban meaning legally you can use them indoors but we suggest checking with the venue first. Electronic cigarettes are a cheaper, healthier alternative to smoking.
History of the Electronic Cigarette
The electronic cigarette was first patented by Herbert Gilbert, He described a device which heated a nicotine solution and produced steam. He was approached by several companies who expressed an interest in manufacturing his device but it never went into production commercially.
Chinese pharmacist Hon Lik invented an electronic cigarette device in Beijing. A heavy smoker, Hon was inspired to design the e-cigarette after his father, who was also a smoker died from lung cancer. Credited with creating the first generation of electronic cigarette, Hon changed the name of his company from Golden Dragon Holdings to Ruyan which translates to "like smoke" and refers to the vapour produced when using an electronic cigarette. Hon began exporting the devices overseas and the design formed the basis for products available today.
British business man Greg Carson introduced e-cigarettes under the name "Electro Fag". A heated debate began in Parliament as MPs discussed whether they should be included in the smoking ban. They concluded that electronic cigarettes would not be subject to the same legislation as tobacco cigarettes and therefore legal to smoke indoors.
Electronic cigarettes are introduced in the USA. The Food and Drugs Association (FDA) tested them stringently and banned many of the early imports. Scientific body Exponent, Inc later criticised the FDA's testing. July 1st - UK smoking ban comes into force following the 2006 Health Act; it is now illegal to smoke tobacco cigarettes in enclosed public places including public transport. Electronic cigarettes are exempt from the smoking ban as they do not contain any tobacco.
The World Health Organisation (WHO) state that electronic cigarettes should not be considered as a smoking cessation aid and cannot be marketed in this manner.
President Obama signs an act with the FDA giving them power to regulate the tobacco industry. Following this, the FDA introduced a number of new laws including one that states if flavoured tobacco cessation products are marketed towards minors they can be banned. All new tobacco products must now pass the FDA industry standards. Individual states begin implementing state laws regarding e-cigarettes, New Jersey and Oregon include them in the public smoking ban.
Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) are currently reviewing proposed options to regulate electronic cigarettes. The National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) are developing guidance for the use of e-cigarettes. ASH released a briefing in January on e-cigarettes, stating they do "not consider it appropriate to include e-cigarettes under smoke-free regulations."
