Why not call nicotine nictotine if not to just confuse us about what's actually in their product. No, I'm not liking the FINITI ingredients one bit and I also didn't like the way it made me feel. That wasn't a nicotine reaction I felt, it was something else.
    I'm actually impressed that they use this format. It does mean that most of us are going to have to look it up, but at least then we get the most accurate information about what it really is that we can.

    For example, the list included "Natural and Artificial Flavors". So what exactly are they? The only ingredients you can't identify.

    There is nothing wrong with using ethanol in liquid. Like was said earlier, it is used in flavor extractions.

    The fact that it is listed separately implies that it is used for TH as well as in some of the extractions. IS it safe? To consume, yes. Preparing extractions is actually a bit dangerous. You cannot do them around open flames. Stovetop on a gas stove is a no-no.

    1) no issue with Cig-a-likes - personal choice is personal choice.
    2) No problem with listing ingredients - more should do so voluntarily
    3) Google search - information attained in 30 seconds.

    Looking for answers is good. Posting in the proper sections to find answers is even better.

    Say what you like but common sense tells me not to inhale ethanol so I won't be vaping FINITIs or anything else that lists ethanol as an ingredient.

    OK, nicotine is nicotine, how is using the scientific term for it any more accurate than just calling it what it is? It's actually not.

    "Nicotine" certainly means more to me than does "3-[1-methylpyrrolidin-2-yl]pyridine." It would be nice to see some plain language listed next to the compounds, like "(Nicotine)" or "(Flavoring)." However, I think it is only good that this company is using IUPAC labeling for their ingredients, since it is a world-wide standard. IUPAC name for ethanol is "Ethanol." If someone in Sweden or Singapore has the same reservations you do about inhaling it there will be no question that the Finity brand disposable is something they want to avoid. It provides a level of transparency and accountability that the general names do not.

    I am away from home without my ecig so I picked one of these up at Walgreens for $6.99. Mine is "Midnight Tobacco" flavor. Honestly, I'm not crazy about it. I haven't experienced the light-headed feeling you described. All told, I'm happy with my purchase because I only dropped seven dollars on it and my expectations were fairly low. I'm not worried about the Ethanol. However, if it's something you feel you should avoid I respect that. This isn't the brand for you.

    Cheers and good vaping!
