U.S. extracted nicotine will soon be available

According to our research, including industry sources, the nicotine currently used in e-cigarette liquid (even those advertised as "U.S. Made") is extracted by companies located in China, Japan, India, Belgium, Germany, Ireland, Sweden and Norway and shipped to U.S. distributors.  As far as we can tell, this will be the first company to extract nicotine from US-grown tobacco within the U.S. and it is pure extract intended for labs and businesses, not for retail sale.
