Nicotine February 2,2021.

Nicotine is a stimulant drug that speeds up the messages travelling between the brain and body. It is the main psychoactive ingredient in tobacco products and so this Drug Facts page will focus on the effects of nicotine when consumed by using tobacco.

Tar and carbon monoxide (a toxic gas) are also released when tobacco is burned, such as when it’s smoked.

Products such as cigarettes, cigars, pipe tobacco, chewing tobacco, and wet and dry snuff and the dried leaves from the tobacco plant all contain nicotine.

Electronic cigarettes (also known as E cigarettes) do not contain dried tobacco leaves, but they may still contain nicotine.
