USA Blend Tobacco E Juice History
Tobacco grows natively in North and South America and is closely related to both the potato and the pepper. Surprisingly, or perhaps not, it is in the same family as Deadly Nightshade. Many historians trace back tobacco crops to 6,000 BC in Americas. In 1 BC, indigenous Americans began cultivating tobacco for recreational and ceremonial purposes. In fact, many Americans believe tobacco to be perfect for a range of medicinal issues.
In 1492, Christopher Columbus was gifted tobacco from indigenous Americans. He brought the dried leaves back to Europe were it was grown and cultivated. In 1588, Thomas Harriet from Virginia promoted smoking tobacco as a way to get a daily dose of the plant. By this time, all throughout Europe and in the Americas, tobacco was widely regarded as a “cure-all”. 1760 saw the establishment of the oldest tobacco company in the United States. This company was called P. Lorillard and it was founded in NYC, where it produced tobacco, cigars, and snuff.
The Americans were financed during the Revolutionary War by using tobacco as collateral for loans borrowed from France. It wasn’t until 1826 that nicotine was isolated and was understood to be a chemical possible of poisoning individuals. The potential for addiction was thus discovered. Phillip Morris was established in 1847 when they started selling hand rolled, Turkish cigarettes. The 1900’s saw the invention of cigarettes, which exploded during WWI. It wasn’t until the 1950’s that evidence started piling up which suggested that smoking was linked to lung cancer. In response, the tobacco industry promoted cigarettes with filters and “lower tar”.
In 1964, the groundbreaking report from the Surgeon General titled “Smoking and Health” came out. Because of this report, the government was able to start regulating cigarettes and tobacco products. After this, many of the tobacco companies started diversifying their products and bought into areas such as beer, aluminum foil and the food industry. The advertisement of tobacco products was strictly regulated at this point.
It wasn’t until the 1980s that Big Tobacco started seeing lawsuits. Smoking started becoming socially unacceptable and many people started to seriously understand the health consequences of the habit.
With the sordid history of Big Tobacco and cigarettes, it’s no wonder that so many people are turning to vaping. With our USA Blend Tobacco E Juice, you can enjoy the taste of tobacco without the terrible side effects of combustible cigarettes. Check it out!
