Trends in Nicotine Strength in Electronic Cigarettes Sold in the United States by Flavor, Product Type, and Manufacturer, 2017-2022
CDC and NORC at the University of Chicago released the following tobacco-related article in the journal, Nicotine & Tobacco Research HERE.
Most e-cigarettes contain highly addictive nicotine. This study assessed trends in nicotine strength in e-cigarettes sold in the United States during January 2017 – March 2022.
Monthly average nicotine strength of e-cigarette products increased overall, for most product and flavor types, and for some manufacturers in the United States during the study period. Imposing maximum limits on nicotine strength of e-cigarettes, together with other evidence-based commercial tobacco control strategies, can help reduce the use of e-cigarettes among youth and increase commercial tobacco product cessation among adults.
