Q: How long does Nicotine stay in the body?
A: How long nicotine stays in the body depends on the individual. Factors such as height, weight, age, metabolism and your general health all play a role. However, we can make some general statements about the metabolic path of nicotine.
Nicotine is readily absorbed in to the bloodstream through the nose, mouth and airways. Once inside the body, it quickly reaches the body’s organs and crosses the blood/brain barrier in to the brain where it activates specific receptors. This process can actually take less than 10 seconds.
Nicotine is metabolized in the liver and converted in to, amongst other things, cotinine.
There are various test methods used to identify nicotine, or its metabolites, in the body. These include urine, saliva and blood. Generally speaking, nicotine can be detected in the blood and urine for up to approximately four days after absorption, whilst it can be detected in the saliva up to about two days.
Furthermore, detection can be made up to approximately 90 days after absorption through hair follicle test methods.

Q: Seeing some references about not using e-cigs if you have diabetes … please explain why?
A: Your body reacts in a number of ways to chemicals and stimulants such as nicotine, each of which differ dependent upon a number of factors, including personal health. We would always say that, if you have a known medical condition, such as diabetes, you should always speak with your doctor before using electronic cigarettes.
Q: My husband has been using your product since January 1, 2014 and over the past two weeks has broken out in hives on his arms and upper body. He has not eaten anything that would cause this. Is there some ingredient in your product that would cause this side effect?
A: All of our ingredients have been approved for human consumption, but people’s bodies react differently to many common ingredients. We would always suggest consulting your doctor at your earliest opportunity and refrain from using any electronic cigarettes until your doctor has identified the cause of the illness.
