“TOBACCO FREE NICOTINE”
WHAT IS IT?
Tobacco Free Nicotine (or, TFN) is often heralded as the future of the vape
industry. That’s because media portrayals and recent FDA regulations have

considered the only source of nicotine. But pure nicotine can exist with no
additives, and it has physiological effects as benign as caffeine.

an emerging niche in the vape industry, many e-liquid manufacturers have already

compound while the other is an actual crop. With the inevitable
adoption of TFN by more and more e-liquid companies, getting the
right information to the right people is key.
