Heat-Not-Burn tobacco products information sheet
Heat-not-burn (HNB) products are tobacco products that produce aerosols containing nicotine and other chemicals, which are inhaled by users, through the mouth. They contain the highly addictive substance nicotine (contained in the tobacco), which makes HNB tobacco products addictive. They also contain non-tobacco additives, and are often flavoured. HNB tobacco products mimic the behaviour of smoking conventional cigarettes, and some make use of specifically designed cigarettes to contain the tobacco for heating.To get more news about HNB, you can visit hitaste.net official website.
What are some examples of HNB tobacco products?
There are a number of these tobacco products available on several markets. Examples include iQOS from Philip Morris International, Ploom TECH from Japan Tobacco International, Glo from British American Tobacco, and PAX from PAX Labs.
How do HNB tobacco products work?
In order to produce the nicotine-infused vapor, HNB tobacco products heat tobacco up to 350°C (lower than 600°C as in conventional cigarettes) using battery-powered heating-systems. The heating-system enclosed in a device, can be an external heat source to aerosolize nicotine from specially designed cigarettes (ex. iQOS and Glo), or a heated sealed chamber to aerosolize nicotine directly from tobacco leaf (ex. Ploom and Pax).
The heating device requires charging and the user draws on the mouthpiece at intervals to inhale volumes of the aerosol through the mouth, which is then taken into the body.HNB tobacco products are marketed or planned to be marketed in close to forty countries as of September 2017*, and based on the current trend, it is likely that these tobacco products will be introduced in more countries.
