What's in A Cigarette ?

What's in a Cigarette?

There are approximately 600 ingredients in cigarettes. When burned, they create more than 7,000 chemicals. At least 69 of these chemicals are known to cause cancer, and many are poisonous.

Many of these chemicals are also found in consumer products, but these products have warning labels. While the public is warned about the danger of the poisons in these products, there is no such warning for the toxins in tobacco smoke.  So, how about giving up on tobacco?  Try our flavorful, safe ALL-HERBAL Organic smoking blends with NO additives.  We even have a Nixing Nicotine blend to help you quit smoking commercial tobacco products.  Visit: and see all the great smoke mixes available !

Here are a few of the chemicals in tobacco smoke, and other places they are found:
