What you need to know about new synthetic nicotine products
Synthetic nicotine products just started being more heavily regulated in July of 2022, in response to an overwhelming popularity amongst underage users. They are marketed as being safer alternatives to traditional tobacco products, making them very popular with smokers trying to quit.
While it is true that some synthetic nicotine products contain lower levels of harmful chemicals than traditional cigarettes, many do not. Studies show that these products are often laced with dangerous substances such as diethylene glycol, acetaldehyde, and formaldehyde.
That’s why it’s so important to make sure you go with a well known brand you can trust. Pacha is part of a publicly traded company that maintains the highest standards in the quality of our synthetic nicotine as well as the carrier fluid. Any kinds of adulterants are a huge no-no for us, and it should be for you too.
What is synthetic nicotine?
Synthetic nicotine is a term that describes nicotine that doesn’t come from tobacco leaves. This includes nicotine that is derived from chemically based or enzymatic processes. While many people prefer to consume only natural products, synthetic nicotine is preferred by many, including myself.
Synthetic nicotine is such a huge step up from the traditionally tobacco based e-liquids because it’s much smoother to vape. Not only that, extracting the nicotine from plant material usually means that unwanted chemicals used to grow the tobacco also find their way into traditional e-juice.
What is the difference between non-synthetic and “tobacco-free” products?
Synthetic nicotine products are not tobacco-derived products. These products are often marketed as safer alternatives to traditional cigarettes because they don’t contain tar, carbon monoxide, or other harmful substances found in cigarette smoke.
What Is The Difference Between Synthetic And Traditional Nicotine Juices?
Traditional nicotine juices contain actual tobacco leaves as their base ingredient. Synthetic nicotine juices do not contain tobacco leaves at all. Instead, they’re made from a combination of propylene glycol and vegetable glycerin. Both of these ingredients are considered safe by the FDA.
Tobacco derived nicotine products, such as e-cigarettes, are now regulated the same as synthetic ones. E-cigarette liquids must meet FDA standards for safety and quality, including being tested for impurities and residual solvents. Manufacturers are required to submit product samples to the agency for testing. If a chemical used in the liquid isn’t listed on the label, the manufacturer must provide proof that it doesn’t exceed safe levels.
How are non-tobacco products regulated?
Synthetic nicotine products are regulated like tobacco products. They’re often marketed as safer alternatives to cigarettes, cigars, hookah pipes, e-cigarettes and vaping devices. But some manufacturers are claiming that they don’t need regulation because they’re not technically drugs, tobacco products or medical devices. And some experts say that these products could pose health risks, especially to young people.
Are Synthetic Nicotine Products Legal?
Pacha makes every effort to ensure that all of our products comply with all local laws. Unfortunately, some states have passed legislation that prohibits the sale of synthetic nicotine products. If this is the case where you live, please check with your state’s department of health before purchasing any of our products.
Some convenience store owners are allowed to sell certain types of synthetic nicotine products depending on local and state laws.
Who Regulates Synthetic Nicotine Products?
The Food and Drug Administration says it doesn’t regulate synthetic nicotine products. Instead, the agency regulates tobacco products under the Tobacco Control Act. In 2016, Congress passed legislation that required FDA to issue guidance about how to regulate electronic nicotine delivery systems, such as e-cigarettes and vape pens. FDA hasn’t done that yet.
In addition, the Center for Disease Control and Prevention says that there isn’t enough evidence to determine whether synthetic nicotine products are safe or effective. “We know that youth use of e-cigarette products is increasing,” CDC Director Robert Redfield told reporters earlier this month. “And we do not want to see kids exposed to potentially harmful substances.”
Vapor Products and the Law F.A.Q.
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recently announced it plans to issue final rules requiring manufacturers of e-cigarettes to submit applications for premarket review. This rulemaking process requires companies to prove that their products are safe and effective before being allowed to sell them. Manufacturers will also have to comply with additional requirements such as submitting safety data about their products.
What Does This Mean For Vapor Product Consumers?
This new regulation will require businesses selling vape products to register with FDA and provide information about what they make and how they make it. Businesses will also be required to keep records of sales and inventory. In addition, the FDA will be able to inspect manufacturing facilities and take samples of finished products. Companies will also have to pay fees to cover the costs associated with this inspection.

How Will Vape Shops Be Affected By These Rules?
If you run a vape shop, you might find yourself having to change some things about how you operate your store. You’ll likely have to hire someone to help you manage compliance issues like record keeping and reporting. Additionally, you’ll have to monitor your inventory levels and ensure that no one under the age of 18 enters your store. Finally, you’ll have to educate your customers about the dangers of underage use and explain why you don’t allow minors into your establishment.
Will This Regulation Hurt Small Businesses?
Yes. While the regulations won’t affect large corporations, they could hurt smaller businesses. They may be forced to close down because they can’t afford to meet the extra regulatory burdens placed upon them.
The law has also made it harder to purchase certain types of nicotine products in response to the underage vaping problem. Fortunately, companies like our partner Blackout Vapors make it extremely easy to get your vaping products delivered right to your door.

When you inhale, the propylene glycol and/or vegetable glycerin vaporize and enter your lungs.

These receptors are responsible for transmitting signals throughout your central nervous system. As a result, you feel the effects of the synthetic nicotine juice.
