QUESTION: Is the Wisekick™ safe to use?
ANSWER: All electronic products have been tested and certified as meeting UK and European Union regulatory standards. They hold ROHS (Restriction of Hazardous Substances) and CE (Conformité Européenne) certificates.
Compare the Wisekick™ with a tobacco cigarette:
Tobacco Cigarette: Contains tobacco, paper and 4000 harmful added chemicals, including 50 cancer causing agents. They produce second-hand smoke and represent a fire hazard.
Wisekick™: Contains water, safe vegetable glycerine, flavouring and nicotine. There are no cancer causing agents, no smoke whatsoever and no fire, or even significant heat.
CAUTION: Nicotine is a highly addictive substance. Inhaling Wisekick™ vapour (except zero nicotine) can lead to nicotine dependency for those who do not already smoke. For this reason Wisekick™ will not sell its products to minors and strongly advise non-smokers not to use its nicotine products.
QUESTION: Who should avoid using ecigarettes?
ANSWER: Wisekick™ does not recommend the use of its products to non-smokers, pregnant or breastfeeding mothers, or those with heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, asthma, nicotine allergy or any serious heart or respiratory condition.
QUESTION: Can I quit smoking with a Wisekick™?
ANSWER: Wisekick™ is a relatively harmless nicotine-delivering alternative to tobacco smoking. Wisekick™ is not promoted as nicotine replacement therapy, makes no medical claims and advises anyone using tobacco to quit. There are many ‘quit smoking programs’ available to help. UK residents might try http://smokefree.nhs.uk/.
Many Wisekick™ customers have claimed to have “not touched a cigarette for more than a year since using Wisekick™”; whilst some have claimed to have gradually reduced their nicotine intake to zero with the help of Wisekick™.
QUESTION: Where is it legal to use a Wisekick™?
ANSWER: Legally, a Wisekick™smokeless cigarette can be used just about anywhere, as it is not covered by cigarette legislation. It is not a tobacco burning device and does not produce harmful second hand smoke. However, ecigarettes are often mistaken for tobacco products, on which people have strongly held views; therefore venue, transport and workplace managers/proprietors sometimes object to this activity in their jurisdiction. To minimize misunderstandings, Wisekick™ recommends the use of its black battery units with blue LEDs in public places.
QUESTION: What regulations are ecigarettes subject to?
ANSWER: As ecigarettes may contain nicotine, sale is restricted to adults aged over 18 years and all nicotine containing products must be packaged in child-resistant containers. In promoting child-safety, Wisekick™ will always try to go further than regulations require.
QUESTION: What can go wrong?
ANSWER: In the event that a Wisekick™ produces any adverse health effect, such as an allergic reaction; or if any cartomizer should be swallowed by a child, immediate medical attention should be sought.
