Heated tobacco smoke and smell
If you’re looking for cigarettes that do not give off smoke, there is an answer. Those who enjoy consuming tobacco and nicotine may wish to consider heated tobacco as an alternative. Wondering what heated tobacco is? Allow us to explain.
When you light a cigarette, you start a combustion process. Tobacco burns at extremely high temperatures, allowing the smoker to inhale tobacco and nicotine in the process. This burning is what produces the thick cigarette smoke we’re all familiar with and the distinctive smell that comes along with it. But did you know that you don’t need to burn tobacco to consume it in this way?
Tobacco heater devices like glo™ take a different approach – one we refer to as our heat-not-burn technology. First and foremost, they’re super simple to use. You simply insert your tobacco-containing neo™ stick, hold the button to activate, then you’re good to go.
Once activated, these devices heat the tobacco to exactly 270°C in less than 20 seconds. This is enough to produce tobacco and nicotine-containing aerosol for the user to inhale, but without giving off the smoke and ash that come with burning*. As for the heat-not-burn tobacco smell, you’ll find it to be nowhere near as strong or overpowering when compared with conventional cigarettes. That’s because most of the smell from smoking comes from the tobacco charring, but there’s minimal charring that takes place when the tobacco is held at a maximum 270°C.
And that’s not all. glo™ devices produce fewer and lower levels of toxicants than are given off by the smoking of conventional cigarettes. 90-95% less toxicants, in fact**.
Altogether, these benefits are great news for you and everyone standing around you when you swap your cigarettes for a tobacco heater.
