There are several reasons why using synthetic nicotine withstands the challenges against the new vaping regulations.
The U.S Food and Drug Administration has announced that they are implementing a new plan for tobacco and nicotine products in 2017. The plan focuses on facilitating the development of less harmful alternative products. This type of approach helps lessen preventable deaths due to smoking, resulting in roughly 480,000 deaths per year in the U.S.
FDA’s regulation plan includes the following key features:
- Regulatory policies that address the public’s awareness about nicotine addiction, appeal, and increase of using smoking cessation products.
- Extending compliance dates and finding scientifically-backed up research about tobacco products intended for safety standards.
- Implementing a Youth Tobacco Prevention Plan to stop youth from having access to tobacco and nicotine products.
Synthetic nicotine products, however, currently fall into a regulatory gap because they fall in the definition of a tobacco product. A recent study addresses the gaps in the analysis of nicotine reduction research. These gaps can withstand the legal challenges against the FDA’s nicotine reduction standard, to define synthetic nicotine products as an effective smoking cessation product.
Nicotine Dependents Can Turn to Synthetic Nicotine
Synthetic nicotine is artificially created in the lab without the impurities of the tobacco. It offers an alternative experience for nicotine dependents—a perceived less harmful option. In addition, it is a cleaner type of nicotine that is flavorless and odorless.
Nicotine replacement therapy (NRT) products usually contain synthetic nicotine. Using NRT helps ease the physical withdrawal symptoms and cravings of a former smoke addict, an important note in opposing flavor bans on products with synthetic nicotine, including ENDS.
Synthetic Nicotine is Not Tobacco-Based
Though synthetic nicotine has the same chemical compound as tobacco nicotine, it does not offer any of its harmful chemicals. It has the same molecular structure of nicotine. However, synthetic nicotine undergoes an intensive purification process.
While synthetic nicotine is a mildly stimulating chemical compound, it only contains a lesser amount of its addictive concentrations. In fact, it has about 8% to 13% addictive chemical substances. This is why most former smokers choose it as their nicotine alternative.
NRT Products Help Smokers Quit
Quitting nicotine is the hardest part of moving forward into a better lifestyle for nicotine dependents. When an individual stops smoking, it causes a lot of psychological effects like anxiety, sleeplessness, and other stressful emotions. However, if accompanied by nicotine replacement therapy, it lessens the difficulty.
Nicotine in the form of patches, gums, lozenges, and others is made for temporary nicotine use. This helps provide safer and controllable nicotine levels when you start to quit. While it may take some time for a nicotine addict to stop using it, it creates a manageable transitioning phase.
Properly used NRT products with the right amount of synthetic nicotine are preferred. Also, it offers an effective method for an individual to quit smoking for good. While there aren’t any guaranteed proofs that it cures nicotine addiction, it makes it possible to quit nicotine forever.
NRT offers an Adequate Amount of Nicotine Substitute
Not all smokers are alike, meaning they require different amounts of nicotine in their bodies. When they begin using nicotine replacement products, they have various choices of nicotine strengths and flavors. However, new users need a professional to help them find the right nicotine levels.
For new users, it might take some time to figure out the right type of nicotine to use. It usually depends on the type of NRT product that they will be using. They need the right mix that make them comfortable.
Some smokers can finish 1 pack of cigarettes per day, some just a few sticks. This is why it can be tricky to choose your own nicotine levels. Also, some smokers do not find it easier to quit their smoking habit, which means patches and lozenges are definitely not for them. A professional in the field of CBT and healthcare can help with this.
Synthetic Nicotine Also Helps Individuals Transition to a Tobacco-Free Life
The use of synthetic nicotine works better with CBT. The helpful effects of NRT products lessen all the stressful withdrawal symptoms. With this, the gradual transition process brings a nicotine addict closer to a nicotine-free future.
The myths of synthetic nicotine as a highly addictive product that accompanies it is nowhere near the truth. Due to this, there is a number of people doubting its ability to help smokers transition. However, as stated earlier, it is not a fact because it does not have as many harmful chemicals as tobacco cigarettes.
Unlike tobacco cigarettes, synthetic nicotine doesn’t involve combustion. Depending on the type of NRT or smoking cessation product, you don’t need to produce heat to consume it. Especially because it does not have the harmful effects of smoke, it provides a less harmful lifestyle for former smokers.
