Health Canada Advisory Prevents Importing, Selling and Advertisement of Electronic Cigarettes

Health Canada is requesting Canadians not to buy any electronic smoking products to help them prevent the use of harmful tobaccos. According to Health Canada, these products may pose risks because it is not yet fully evaluated for quality, safety and effectiveness.

Basically, some of the products involved on the scope are electronic cigarettes, cigarillos, pipes, cartridges of nicotine solutions and more. These products are actually part of the Food and Drugs Act. Based on the act, these products still need authorization before they can be advertised, imported and sold to the public. This act actually prevents the selling of electronic smoking products because through the years, any kind of product has not yet achieved any authorization in Canada.

Canadian laws regarding e cigarettes are very strict when it comes to these kinds of products. Since there are no standard evaluation for the safety of these products, Canada does not allow the selling of these products in their country. However, during the past few months, a lot of electronic cigarettes, pipes, cigars and cartridges have been marketed in Canada through the Internet. Most of the products offer a similar smoking experience to traditional cigarettes. They have battery powered delivery system that delivers a liquid with chemical fixture. This liquid is composed of varying amounts of nicotine, propylene glycol and others.

There are some important things to know about using electronic cigarettes, as you already know, Nicotine is known to be a toxic and highly addictive substance. Also, the inhalation of propylene glycol poses many threats on the body. It is true that when it comes to safety, electronic smoking products are actually safer compared to traditional tobacco but they still offer some health risks because nicotine and propylene glycol are still known irritants and addictive substances.

Even if Canada is strict when it comes to electronic smoking products, they already approved other smoking cessation aids. Health Canada already authorized the purchasing of nicotine gum, nicotine patches, nicotine inhaler and nicotine lozenges. The authorization of these products is actually approved by Canada because they consider this as a safer alternative when compared to electronic products since they look like the real thing. It is said that the resemblance of the product triggers the urge of people to use traditional cigarettes again.

If you still prefer the use of electronic smoking products, you have to be careful when buying  them. 
Electronic Cigarettes Canada uncovers the truth behind the legalities of buying electronic cigarettes from
within Canada or abroad. These products including the cartridges must be kept far from the reach of children because of risks of choking or poisoning. Always keep in mind that Nicotine is hazardous to your health especially to children, youth, pregnant women, nursing mothers, and people with any heart problems and elderly people.

Any advertisement or selling of electronic cigarette must talk direct with Health Canada. They provide information on the right process of applying for market authorization.
