The first thing that usually comes to mind when it comes to nicotine is tobacco, regardless of whether it is smoking, vaping, or pharmaceutical nicotine. As nicotine is obtained mainly from tobacco, this is a reasonable association and thus usually nicotine products are subject to the same regulations as tobacco products. Usually, but not always – there is a way to produce non-tobacco nicotine which is also called synthetic nicotine.
For decades, tobacco has earned its unfortunate reputation by associations with carcinogenic cigarette smoke, tar, lung, and cardiovascular diseases. The case is absolutely different for e-cigarette liquids: no burning tobacco, no smoke, or its health impacts. E-liquids manufactured with Chemnovatic’s tobacco nicotine contain pharmaceutical grade nicotine with purity of more than 99.9%. Chemnovatic’s freebase nicotine PureNic 99+ chemically distilled from tobacco leaves has gained worldwide recognition.

What is synthetic nicotine?
Nowadays most e-liquids are manufactured with the use of tobacco nicotine, however, scientists can now produce pure nicotine without the use of tobacco in the laboratory environment. Synthetic/non-tobacco nicotine is not obtained from tobacco leaves, stems, tobacco extract, or post-production tobacco waste. Synthetic nicotine/tobacco-free nicotine is an artificial replica of traditional nicotine derived from tobacco, but it is manufactured using chemicals that do not contain any tobacco plants.
