The History Behind The E-Cigarrete

e-cig history
In 1963 a patent was taken out by Herbert A. Gilbert for a device know as a “a smokeless non-tobacco cigarette”. unfortunately it never went into manufacture and disappeared from the public record after 1967

This allowed a Chinese pharmacist by the name of Hon Lik to become widely credited with the invention of the first electronic cigarette.In 2000, he came up with the idea to vaporise a pressurized jet of liquid containing nicotine.This produces a smoke-like vapour that can be inhaled and provides a alternative supply for nicotine delivery into the body.

Initially introduced into the Chinese market in 2004 to be an aid for smoking cessation and replacement. The company that Hon Lik worked for finally started exporting these products in 2005–2006 before receiving its first international patent in 2007.

2003 As seen the launch of many companies that have now began to manufacture and market a wide range of E-cigarette models and sales are increasing rapidly.
