How do you heat tobacco without burning it?
That is the key question, and one of the most innovative Japanese has been able to figure out. The technology for burning heat actually comes from e-cigarettes. To understand that heat doesn’t burn, you need to understand how e-cigarettes work. Here’s a quick introduction if you’re not familiar with it:
The same premise applies to heat-non-burn methods. This is how it works in practice:
How hot is that?
Heat Not Burn devices heat the heatsticks to generate steam. There is no need to worry about the heat generated by the heat not burn device, as the Heating mechanism is securely enclosed and cannot be touched during use. For comparison, the temperature at the hot / burning end of a conventional cigarette can can reach almost 900 degrees Celsius during a puff.
Is a tobacco heatsticks healthier than e-cigarette vapor?
This is an area that requires a lot more research. In fact, the health benefits of e-cigarettes alone require more research! So these are still very new technologies, so it’s difficult to say definitely that one is preferable to the other. If you plan to use nicotine products, based on current knowledge, it can be assumed that non-smoking options like e-cigarettes and heat-not-burn are preferable to conventional cigarettes. Remove the smoke, remove many troubles.
Is heat-non-burn more pleasant than an e-cigarette?
Non-burned users also prefer the idea of “vaping” loose-leaf tobacco, which is a natural substance. This is considered to be preferable to the synthetic e-liquids available, some of which may irritate the throat of the user. So for some users, heat-not-burn is far superior to the e-cigarette experience and a process you enjoy. It’s closer to smoking, the taste is great, the throat is great, and it’s an innovation that has been welcomed. Of course there will always be some people who disagree. E-cigarette advocates can argue:
There is one important final note here, however. In theory, heat-not-burn can be more effective at helping people quit smoking than e-cigarettes are. The reason for this is simple; very small changes. The experience of heat-not-burn devices is a much closer mimicking of traditional cigarettes than e-liquids, which can put people off with their fruity flavors. However, e-cigarettes can help because they are usually smaller than tobacco vaporizers.
E-liquids also require a learning curve. The user has to learn how to handle e-liquids, how to handle them how to understand their strength ratios. You have to learn all the different devices; the atomizers, the clearomizers, the tanks, the ‘modifications’. It can be a confusing world for someone who just wants to quit smoking and is just starting out. That is the main reason most people find the street forward cartomizer e-cigarette the best option to start with, no e-liquid problems because everything is pre-filled in one easy-to-use refill cartridge In comparison, heat-not-burning is wonderfully simple and mostly familiar. It’s tobacco heatsticks. There are no new e-liquid rules to learn. Simply insert the tobacco and off you go. The taste is the same; authentically fake, rather than a synthetic reproduction of what tobacco should taste like. There is no aftertaste like with e-liquids. essentially it is smoking without the smoke.
We all know how difficult it is to stop using traditional cigarettes. We know the struggles people face abandoned attempts, the nicotine replacement therapy patches, which only work in a very small number of cases. If heat does not provide an authentic replica of the smoking experience.
Is heat-not-burning popular?
Heat that doesn’t burn is a relative newcomer to the world of nicotine consumption, but every product has nowhere to start. E-cigarettes were created by Chinese scientist Hon Lik in 2003, but only in the past five years have they really spread in the mainstream. Heat not-burn is just a technological baby e-cigarette by comparison, and its use is not widespread. However, use is to be assumed. Heat not burn has become popular in Japan, from where the technology originated and now competes with both conventional cigarettes and electronic devices. Reputable herbal heatsticks also use this type of conduction heating. Its popularity in Japan is easy to understand. Japan regulates e-liquid wild; it can be expensive and difficult to obtain outside of major cities.
The rules and restrictions regarding the manufacture of e-liquid and the sale of vaping kits are strict and many companies struggle to distinguish themselves from such strong regulatory scrutiny. Studies have shown that the U.S. market, for example, is open to the idea of not burning heat and might be tempted to switch. It’s easy to see why this is the case. Heat not burn solves many of the problems ex-smokers have with vaping. The throat factor seems to be too definitive, as does the improved taste and easier process.
Will heat-not-burn replace e-cigarettes?
It is very unlikely that tobacco vaping is replacing e-cigarettes. E-cigarette technology has moved quickly and provides a straightforward method of transitioning from smoking. Many vapers won’t want to switch to heat-not-burning, so e-cigarettes will always have a place in the market. However, the scope seems to be there for heat not burn to become a legitimate industry parallel to the vaping market. The money is used to raise awareness of the productincreases; As you might expect, large tobacco companies rely on heat not burn, therefore knowledge and usage of the product is likely to increase. Vapers who are asked if they would be interested in learning more, or even trying, heat-non-burn tends to respond positively – the market inevitably will catch you with those feelings.
Finally Heat-not-burn is another step in the evolution of tobacco use in humans. Ease of use has been improved, taste and big throat punch mean that both vapers and smokers can be intrigued by the feel of what these devices can do. One thing everyone can agree with is that alternatives to traditional cigarettes, and poisonous smoke, are necessary. It becomes clear that heat does not burn deserves its place as one of the alternatives, and its growth could be adjusted to be exponential.
