If you haven’t heard about synthetic nicotine, it is very possible that you are the last on the planet to hear about it - just kidding. It is, however, a growing topic, and this unnatural product is beginning to gain even more popular now that it’s out of its initial hype stage. The truth is, manufacturers are actually starting to use synthetic nicotine in their vape juice products as an alternative to traditional freebase nicotine or salt nicotine. The question on everyone’s minds, however, is if 2021 will be the year for it.
WHAT IS SYNTHETIC NICOTINE?
Synthetic Nicotine, also referred to as Tobacco Free Nicotine (TFN), is man-made nicotine that is identical to tobacco-derived nicotine. It is not derived from nor does it use any part of the tobacco plant. It is an extract replica and maintains exactly the same molecular structure, along with many of the same characteristics, including being both tasteless and odorless.
THE FUTURE OF THE VAPING MARKET
Will 2021 be the year for synthetic nicotine, are current manufacturers going to alter their recipes to make room for this alternative, and can we expect new brands and collections to start using synthetic nicotine? These are all questions that we continue to ponder. We’ve already seen some brands reformulate their recipes to adopt this new synthetic nicotine, while others introduced new collections under their umbrella using it. Is there any benefit to it though?
Sure, it gives some vapers peace of mind in knowing that they’re no longer under the thumb of big tobacco by completely distancing themselves from any part of the tobacco plant. You would think that using synthetic nicotine would help manufacturers escape under the radar of the Food and Drug Administration but that is null and void thanks to the recent vapor laws. Despite knowing this, there are some brands that are taking advantage of the benefits that synthetic nicotine offers, such as the brands listed below.
