out igniting the tobacco leaves. Under normal circumstances, when ordinary cigarettes are smoked, the high temperature of 350°C to 600°C will produce many harmful substances, while the low temperature cigarettes are below 300°C, and the harmful substances will be reduced.
Judging from the heat-not-burn function of harm reduction and its highly technologically-sense smoking utensils, these two types of people are most likely to buy such new heat-not-burn products at this stage.
1. Old smokers who need to quit smoking. Such smokers generally smoke for a long time and want to quit but cannot quit.

Now, for the sake of the body, we change to small cigarettes and strictly control the amount of smoking every day. So if there is a cigarette that can be safely smoked, I would really like to try it.
2.It may be young consumers who pursue individuality, like being different, and are also very willing to try new things. Moreover, they are not long-lived and do not rely on cigarettes very much, so they are easy to accept this type of new tobacco products.
