When are Menthol Cigarettes Being Banned in the UK?

On 20 May 2020, menthol cigarettes were banned in the UK and throughout Europe. This means that you will no longer be able to buy menthol cigarettes, menthol flavoured tobacco or menthol filter capsules anywhere within the United Kingdom or European Union.

Why are Menthol Cigarettes Being Banned?

The ban on menthol cigarettes and tobacco products is the latest step in a wider strategy to try and reduce tobacco use. It follows previous action to ban the sale of smaller bags of rolling tobacco and packs of 10 cigarettes.

According to Action on Smoking and Health (ASH), there is evidence that menthol flavoured cigarettes and tobacco can make it easier for young people to begin smoking, as the menthol flavour and ‘cooling’ properties help to mask the irritation tobacco smoke can have on the throat and airways

Unfortunately, this affects a large selection of the adult smoking population who may now be wondering what their options are.

Don’t worry, we’re here to help. We’ve outlined some options below but if you would like a personalised recommendation based on your favourite menthol cigarette brand, please get in touch and we can advise you We can also help with the best device options for you and take any confusion out of the switch.

What Are My Options?

The good news for existing smokers is that you can recreate your favourite menthol cigarettes by switching to vaping, as menthol flavoured e-liquids are not subject to the ban. By doing so you can also reduce your harm as e-cigarettes are 95% safer than smoking (*PHE 2019)

E-cigarettes or vapes have helped thousands of menthol smokers to convert easily from smoking to vaping. Using menthol flavoured vaping goods provide the menthol nicotine hit that you crave.

Why Choose a Menthol E Liquid or Menthol pod?

Menthol e liquids are some of the most popular choices among new vapers. Menthol flavouring itself produces a similar throat hit to that of smoking, in fact many of our customers who used to smoke menthol cigarettes have never moved to any other flavours as they found the transition so easy and find great satisfaction in the flavour profile they knew and enjoyed.

As menthol flavouring naturally provides a throat hit at even low nicotine strengths, it can be particularly appealing to those seeking to step down the strength of the e-liquid they are using, or switch to zero nicotine e-liquid completely.
