IS THIS DANGEROUS?
Q.What makes e-Cigs better than cigarettes?
A.Citizen e-Cigs and Cigars present a smoking alternative that is free of tobacco smoke and secondhand smoke; without smell or ash and only 4 ingredients instead of the 6,500 in tobacco. Our flavored cartomizers produce vapor when heated--not smoke.
Q.Is there nicotine in e-Cigs and e-Cigars?
A.Our goal is to create products that are tailored to the needs of our customers, so Citizen e-Cigs and e-Cigars offer you the choice of having up to 24mg of nicotine in the product of your choosing. We also offer products with 0mg of nicotine, to give you the experience of smoking without nicotine.
Q.Are there any chemicals in e-Cigs or e-Cigars?
A.E-Cigs and e-Cigars contain only food-grade chemicals that are already found in a number of commonly used products. The liquid that produces vapor when heated contains propylene glycol, vegetable glycerine, water, and natural flavoring. Individually, each of these items is FDA approved and safe for human consumption; whereas traditional cigars and cigarettes can contain up to 2,000 harmful chemicals.
