Leading e liquid provider, Blujuice, has commented on findings that call for e cigarettes to be considered as a remedy to those suffering from mental health problems.

Historically, nicotine has been used as a treatment for several mental disorders and research shows that sufferers are more likely to smoke cigarettes and find it more difficult to quit than those without mental health problems.

As reported in the Guardian online, nicotine replacement therapies such as e cigarette liquid vapour are considered a viable and effective alternative to cigarettes as they help to reduce a smoker’s cravings and avoid the detrimental impact that tobacco has on the health.

Professor Peter Hajek, director of the Tobacco Dependence Research Unit at Barts and the London School of Medicine and Dentistry believes that they may deserve their place among the nicotine replacement therapy options available to smokers with mental health problems: “Some wards give out nicotine replacements, such as patches, so considering e cigarettes in the same light would make sense. Giving psychiatric patients access to e cigarettes, particularly on closed wards, is definitely something to consider.”

An Italian study in 2013 showed that e cigarettes could reduce schizophrenic patients’ standard cigarette consumption without having a negative impact on their symptoms, which implied that e cigarettes may be just as effective as tobacco cigarettes at reducing the symptoms of schizophrenia.

Blujuice has welcomed the discussion about the perceived benefits of e liquid cigarettes to those battling mental disorders. A spokesperson for the company said: “We are encouraged to hear that there are calls for e cigarettes to be considered as an effective aid to smokers with mental health problems. The research which suggests that vaping could help to alleviate the symptoms of such a misunderstood illness demands further investigation.”

Blujuice is one of the nation’s favourite premium e liquid suppliers, also specialising in customizers, e cigarette kits and accessories. Upholding a solid reputation within the industry, all e liquid flavours from its extensive collection are manufactured in the UK, sourcing the best ingredients. The firm prides itself on first class customer service, regularly expanding its product list to meet demand.
