For smokers who are trying to quit, nicotine-free cigarettes, also known as herbal cigarettes, present a healthy alternative to regular cigarettes. Unlike regular cigarettes, which contain tobacco and nicotine, nicotine-free cigarettes contain a blend of herbs to help smokers quit their physical addiction to the drug. Once you know how to buy nicotine-free cigarettes, you may consider quitting smoking.


Popular brands of nicotine-free cigarettes usually market their product as “herbal cigarettes.” These brands include Ecstasy, Honeyrose, Smokin' Joe's and Magic Cigarettes, among many others. Herbs included in these cigarettes may include mint, passion flower and more.


You can purchase nicotine-free cigarettes from many online retailers, such as Nicotine Free Cigarettes. However, many tobacconists and even some health food stores have begun to carry at least one or two brands of herbal cigarettes. While buying in person may be more expensive, you will not have to give your credit card number online and risk being scammed from online dealers.


Nicotine-free cigarettes often cost less than regular cigarettes, though this will vary by state due to the different taxes levied on tobacco products. In general, expect to pay around $5 per pack, as of 2010.
