Genecigs is a 100% Australian owned and operated business, founded in 2011, with offices based in Sydney. We are dedicated to fighting the health scourges of tobacco cigarettes by promoting awareness and availability of the electric cigarette as a safer alternative to the Australian public.
Invented by Chinese pharmacist Hon Lik in 2003, electric cigarettes are improving and prolonging the lives of former smokers all around the world. There is a massive market for these products in the United States, but they haven’t taken off to the same level here in Australia.
A major reason for this is the current government restrictions on advertising e-cigarettes. They are still lumped them with the same advertising restrictions as “tobacco products” – even though an electric cigarette contains no tobacco. Because of this, the average Australian on the street doesn’t know that e-cigarettes even exist.
The one place where knowledge about the electric cigarette alternative can be freely shared is the Internet. If you search online, you’ll find that people have been successfully using e-cigarettes to make the transition from smoking for years now. Some people are happy to become full-time e-cigarette vapers, while others use an electric cigarette as a gateway to giving up their nicotine addiction by gradually reducing the amount of nicotine in their e-liquid.
Either way, the electric cigarette is an amazing tool for delivering nicotine, an addictive but non-carcinogenic drug comparable to alcohol or caffeine, to the human body. The medium that delivers nicotine in e-cigarettes is propylene glycol, commonly used in food preservatives and cosmetics.
Conservatively speaking, we think that’s a damn sight better than tobacco cigarettes, which deliver nicotine via smoke that contains 4000 harmful chemicals including arsenic (rat poison), carbon monoxide (car exhaust), pesticides (bug killers), formaldehyde (embalming fluid) ammonia (industrial cleaners) and hydrogen cyanide (Nazi death camp gas) – to name a few!
If you are a smoker, or know someone who is a smoker, we are so glad you have found our site. All products with Genecigs come with a 30 day warranty, so you can buy with confidence and peace of mind. We sincerely hope you’ll make the decision to give the electric cigarette a try, and that you’ll spread the good word about this awesome smoking alternative to others who are affected by smoking tobacco. We know you’ll be happy you did!
