What's the difference between a heated tobacco stick and a cigarette or cigar?

Cigars, cigarettes, and heated tobacco products all contain real tobacco. 

The difference is in how they are used. With cigarettes and cigars the tobacco is burnt, but with heated tobacco products, like Ploom, the tobacco is heated instead. This means heated tobacco products provide you with a smokeless tobacco experience.

Ploom X Advanced is an easy, convenient heated tobacco product that uses innovative HeatFlow technology to heat tobacco sticks from the outside, giving you an exceptional tobacco taste sensation with no smoke and less tobacco smoke smell ¹.

If you're using Ploom X Advanced, you'll need to use Camel tobacco sticks to enjoy your heated tobacco experience.

You can't smoke Camel tobacco sticks the way you would smoke a conventional cigarette - and you won't be able to use a cigar or cigarette with Ploom X Advanced, either.

¹ Based on a sensory panel testing comparing the odor intensity of cigarette smoke and the vapor from a representative sample of Ploom X Advanced heated tobacco sticks.

Our sticks, intended for use in combination with Ploom devices, contain tobacco and nicotine. These products are not risk-free and are addictive. They are intended for existing adult smokers or vapers only. To enter this website, please confirm you are a smoker or vaper aged 18 or over, living in Switzerland.
