Heat-not-burn (HNB) tobacco is a kind of tobacco product. Aerosol containing nicotine and other chemicals for users to consume is generated through an electronic device by heating up (rather than combusting) a tobacco stick with a high temperature of about 350℃.
Same as traditional cigarettes, tobacco is the main ingredient of HNB tobacco products. As such, these products contain nicotine and could be addictive.
Since HNB tobacco is a tobacco product, selling to minors is an offense. Related legislation should comply on sale and use.
HNB tobacco products are being marketed as trendy and less harmful. The tobacco industry uses different names from traditional cigarettes to reduce the public’s awareness of their harms and attract youngsters to use.
