History of the E-Cigarette

Thursday, October 22nd, 2015


You might think e-cigs are a product of the 21st century, but these smoking alternatives have been around for almost a century. In 1927, New Yorker Joseph Robinson patented the first electric vaporizer. Robinson intended his invention for the vaporization of medicinal compounds, and 100 years later, his designs are still used by modern e-cigs. Come 1963, a man named Herbert A. Gilbert first came up with the concept of a smokeless cigarette. He didn’t make any traction in his time, but 30 years later, his ideas would come to fruition.

In the 1990’s, a variety of patents were filed for electronic cigarettes designs and cigarette substitutes. By 2004, the first commercial e-cig was made available in China. Two years later, e-cigs would make their way to Europe, and by 2007, American consumers could purchase them in a vast array of stores.

E-cigs have made some great progress in terms of legal issues. In 2009 Governor Schwarzenegger vetoed a ban on the sale of e-cigs in California, and the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit prevented the FDA from banning e-cigs as an unapproved drug delivery device. These wins for the e-cig and vaping industries provided the framework that would characterize later legal battles.

Celebrities have jumped on the e-cig bandwagon, endorsing their favorite products and using the devices on television and in movies. E-cig popularity continues to rise, no doubt helped along in part by recent research from Public Health England that shows e-cigs are 95% safer than tobacco products. As more consumers turn to e-cigs and vaping from traditional cigarettes, the future of these industries gets brighter by the day.
