Abstract

AIMS:

To determine whether nicotine-containing vaping products submitted to the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) under the Tobacco and Related Products Regulations 2016 contain tetrahydrocannabinol or vitamin E acetate.

METHODS:

Analysis of data on ingredients for all products submitted for notification for the UK market by October 2017 to assess whether any were reported to contain vitamin E acetate or THC. The analysis was not pre-registered and the results should therefore be considered exploratory.

RESULTS:

Vitamin E acetate and THC were not listed as an ingredient or emission in any of the 41,809 products that were submitted for notification.

CONCLUSIONS:

In the UK, vapers and those considering switching from tobacco to vaping can be reassured that licit products available on the UK market do not contain tetrahydrocannabinol or vitamin E acetate.
