Why use a nicotine vape product?
Nicotine vape products (NVPs) are capable of closely reproducing a cigarette's behavioural and pharmacological properties. They are able to do this without producing the toxins contained in tobacco and smoke. Recent evidence and studies have shown the NVPs are effective for helping patients quit smoking, plus they are much safer and cheaper than smoking!
Nicotine vape products may assist patients who have not been able to stop smoking with other types of therapies.
Are Vapes Safe?
The Royal College of Physicians (RCP) (London), The Royal Australian College of General Practitioners (RACGP), The Cochrane Review and The Journal of Natural Medicine* have all published that Nicotine Vaping is significantly better than smoking! Fresh air is best, but vaping legit helps quit, and significantly healthier than smoking. Avoid potentially harmful black market vapes and only use legit, pharmaceutical grade vapes prescribed by a doctor.
Nicotine vaping products require a prescription
The Therapeutic Goods Administration have announced that from the 1st of October 2021, patients will now require a prescription for all purchases of nicotine vaping products. These include products such as nicotine pods, liquid nicotine and nicotine e-cigarettes. This includes purchases from Australian pharmacies as well as overseas.
It remains illegal for other Australian retailers, such as tobacconists, vape shops and convenience stores, to sell you nicotine vaping products, even if you have a prescription. Beware of black market vapes that could land you in trouble with the law or your health.
