Covering facts and effects of non-tobacco smoking and herbal cigarettes
Non-tobacco cigarettes are cigarettes that do not contain any nicotine nor tobacco ingredients. They are becoming popular as more and more people find ways to ditch nicotine addiction.
Nicotine free cigarettes are made from herbal products. Instead of filling the cigarette rod with processed tobacco leaves, herbalists fill the rod with herbal mixtures. The herbal products are meant to not only help smokers quit tobacco smoking as a nicotine replacement, they are also said to deliver a wholesome body repair through the different herbs.
In recent years a significant number of people who are trying to quit smoking tobacco have tended to run away from nicotine replacement therapies which re-introduce nicotine into the body. Some have also failed to withstand side effects of pharmaceutical remedies such as Chantix and Zyban.
For this reason, herbal solutions now being delivered in the form of nicotine free cigarettes have gained some ground.
The other yet regrettable side of things is that most of the products are rapidly emerging on the market without adequate efficacy studies. In desperation to quit and regain control of own health many quitting smokers tend to try so many medically unproven remedies. Many succeed yet with unknown long term medical consequences.
Most tobacco free cigarettes are made from natural herbs such as marshmallow, red clover, and rose. Flavorants are added to the herbs which are often matured in fruit juices and honey syrup.
Research has shown that non-tobacco smoking may be a key risk factor for respiratory conditions and airways obstructions. When lit, herbal cigarettes produce tar and carbon monoxide. Tar is central to lung and respiratory disease in people who smoke tobacco cigarettes.
