The FDA prohibits any type of health claim from being made about electronic cigarettes, vaporizers or their related products and accessories. Usage of nicotine products carries a risk for consumers which require consumer warnings, labels, and disclaimers as stipulated by the FDA.

Similar to traditional cigarettes or tobacco, the FDA is requiring companies to transition labeling to include the full nicotine content to describe each nicotine level option in their cartridges or e-liquid. Levels like low, light, medium, high and so on are now transitioning to nicotine content in mg or percentage by quantity. Please note that nicotine content titles like low, medium, etc. never indicate anything other than nicotine content in each cartridge and make no claims related to health, experience, or risk of using the product.
