Menthol Cigarettes Banned in UK?

by Azim Aleem 16 May 2020


  • Menthol Cigarettes will be banned from the 20th of May
  • Ban applies to menthol cigarettes including those which contain mint flavoured capsules.
  • E-Cigarettes will not be affected by the ban in any way
  • Menthol Cigarettes are due to be banned this month as a means to reduce the appeal of tobacco. The government aims to use this measure as a method to reduce the number of smokers and to deter any potential smokers with a particular focus on younger people.

    When will Menthol Cigarettes be banned?

    The ban is set to come into effect next week on 20th of May 2020. The ban originated from a new EU TPD directive, UK’s exit from the European Union will not affect the legislation which is planned to go live as planned.

    The Law aims to remove flavourings from tobacco to ensure no other forms of taste apart from the characteristic tobacco taste is available for purchase.

    There has been an attempt from the Tobacco industry to appeal the ban with Marlboro, manufactured by Philip Morris appealing for a law change. This request has been swiftly rejected by the European Court of Justice.

    Are Menthol Cigarettes Safer?

    There has been a myth related to menthol cigarettes with some believing that they are less harmful than traditional tobacco, currently there is no evidence which suggests that notion.

    Menthol Cigarettes can help attract new smokers as the menthol in cigarettes relaxes the airways making the cigarette smoke less harsh alongside making the flavour more appealing.

    Make the switch

    We strongly support the menthol cigarette ban, the use of menthol has been for long used by the tobacco industry as a way to attract people towards smoking.

    If you are a smoker who is affected by this ban or looking to quit smoking to improve your health, we wholeheartedly recommend the switch to vaping.

    Vaping has been endorsed by the NHS as well as Public Health England, with the letter stating it’s 95% safer than smoking. Studies show that vaping is 2x as effective as any other nicotine replacement therapy. Many smokers have seen a lot of success with vaping. With many options aimed at beginners, ranging from devices aimed at replicating the sensation of smoking, to a plethora of e-liquids with a countless selection of flavours. Making the switch is as seamless as you can imagine.

    Discover our selection of products hand picked for beginners and make the switch today for a healthier tomorrow.

    What is Lorem Ipsum? Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum. Why do we use it? It is a long established fact that a reader will be distracted by the readable content of a page when looking at its layout. The point of using Lorem Ipsum is that it has a more-or-less normal distribution of letters, as opposed to using 'Content here, content here', making it look like readable English. Many desktop publishing packages and web page editors now use Lorem Ipsum as their default model text, and a search for 'lorem ipsum' will uncover many web sites still in their infancy. Various versions have evolved over the years, sometimes by accident, sometimes on purpose (injected humour and the like).
