Abstract

A tobacco leaf substitute for the manufacturing of a cigarette substitute that contains the same taste and flavor of a regular cigarette is comprised of, including but not limited to, leaves of Morus alba L, 1354MI, and leaves of Lillium longiflorum. The tobacco leaf substitute has additional beneficial effects of low nicotine content. The tobacco leaf substitute of this invention helps to quit smoking. It eliminates the poisons from the blood of a pre-smoker.

Description

  • The present invention relates to a composition of matter for the manufacturing of a cigarette substitute which tastes like a normal cigarette with low amounts of nicotine and tar.
  • BACKGROUND OF INVENTION
  • 1. Field of Invention
  • The present invention relates to a composition of matter for the manufacturing of a cigarette substitute, which tastes like a normal cigarette but contains low amounts of nicotine and tar. It reduces the harmful effects of heavy metal poisoning inherent with a typical regular cigarette.
  • 2. Description of the Prior Art
  • U.S. Pat. No. 6,200,391 to O shiro teaches to add a compound containing ascorbic acid, a salt, a chlorophyll-containing material, and potassium nitrate to obtain a tobacco flavoring agent lowering the tar and nicotine content of tobacco smoke, maintaining a burning portion of tobacco in a stable state, and preserving its powdery state. The tobacco-flavoring agent was deposited on the tips of the cigarettes mixed with shredded tobacco leaves. U.S. Pat. No. 6,041,790 to Smith, et al. illustrates a cigarette substitute article comprised of one or more rod segments made of a gathered web or filamentary tow material in which a flavorant is embedded in liquid or powder form or in a breakable flavorant-containing capsule. U.S. Pat. No. 6,041,789 to Brankert et. al. demonstrates a non-pyrolytic cigarette substitute device delivering a nicotine-simulating vapor mixture having a cigarette-like taste and aroma to the smoker in response to suction. The device has absorbed a solution of a volatile nicotinomimetic agonist enough to satisfy the physiological needs for nicotine of the smoker, and volatile palatability enhancing agents enough for their released vapors to neutralize any unpleasant taste and aroma of the nicotinomimetic agonist vapors. U.S. Pat. No. 5,893,371 to Rose and Behm released a non-nicotine method and apparatus to reduce the desire to smoke tobacco utilizing constituents from black and red peppers. Subsequent to inhalation, the constituents from black and red peppers create respiratory tract sensations similar to those created by tobacco smoke and thereby serve to reduce the impulsing desire to smoke tobacco. U.S. Pat. No. 4,877,041 to Barnhouse illustrates a cigarette substitute comprised of a card on one surface of which is formed of one or more areas having an abrasive encapsulated aroma thereon. Abrasion, as by rubbing or scratching releases a tobacco smoke aroma. A combined menthol/tobacco smoke aroma can also be provided. Identification can be printed on one surface, usually not the surface having the aroma areas. Instructions for use and health advisory printing can be provided on the surface having the aroma areas. The card-like members preferably have dimensions such that a particular number have the same overall dimensions as a package of cigarettes. U.S. Pat. No. 4,195,645 to Bradley, Jr., et al. illustrates a tobacco-substitute smoking material including a polysaccharide, such as cellulose as a combustible organic ingredient. A tobacco alkaloid material is incorporated into the smoking material in the form of a plurality of combustible microcapsules containing the tobacco alkaloid material. U.S. Pat. No. 5,048,544 to Mascarelli, et al. illustrates a cigarette substitute having a small amount of nicotine sufficient to satisfy the desires of a cigarette smoker. U.S. Pat. No. 3,993,082 to Martin, et al. illustrates a paper tobacco substitute which produces a neutral taste when blended with tobacco, comprising cellulose fibers and a filler, said filler comprising at least 55% by weight finely pulverized carbon particles based on the weight of the cellulose. In addition to carbon, the filler may include an alkaline earth metal carbonate or oxide such as calcium carbonate or magnesium oxide to further enhance the properties of the paper as a tobacco substitute. The carbon filled paper may be cut or shredded to simulate natural tobacco and can be used as a blend with tobacco in smoking articles.
  • All of the previous technologies add some chemicals to tobacco leaves or utilized stimulus natural products to simulate the taste and aroma of the tobacco leaves. None of the prior art illustrates utilization of natural plant leaves.
  • SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION
  • It is the object of this invention to provide a composition of a new cigarette substitute having a taste and aroma similar to that of a tobacco leaf but contains a reduced amount of nicotine and tar. The basic composition of this invention is composed of, including but not limited to, leaves of Morus alba L, 1354MI and leaves of Lillium longiflorum. The tobacco leaf substitute of this invention is manufactured in a normal cigarette appearance, 20 each per pack. The tobacco leaf substitute emits reduced amount of nicotine and tar. The cigarette substitute of made from the mixture of the leaves of this invention helps a smoker to quit smoking. It eliminates the ill effects of poisons from the blood of a pre-smoker. The cigarette substitute made from the mixture of the leaves of this invention helps a smoker to quit smoking. It eliminates the poisons from the blood of a pre-smoker.
  • DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE PREFERRED EMBODIMENTS
  • The Morus alba L and Lillium longiflorum grow spontaneously and is distributed in mountains of South Korea, Japan, Taiwan, and China. Major components in the leaf of Morus alba L. known are potassium, iron, calcium, vitamins A, B1, B2, C, plantar fiber, GABA and rutine. According to the Korean traditional medical book of “Boncho Kangmok; China, 1578” and “Dongeuy Bogam written by Hur Jun, Chosun, in circa 1610”, Morus alba L. has a beneficial effect of depressing the cholesterol content in blood streams. It results in a lowering of blood pressure. It helps to prevent heart attacks as well.
  • The inventor found that the smell of the mixture of the leaves of Morus alba L., and leaves of Lillium longiflorum is very similar to that of a tobacco leaf. After washing and drying the collected leaves, commercial cigarette-packing machines were utilized to pack the mixture of the leaves in a cigarette form. The taste and aroma were just like a real regular cigarette. The best mode of the aroma and taste was to dry the mixture of shredded leaves of Morus alba L. 33.3 wt %, shredded leaves Lillium longiflorum of 66.6 wt %. Small amount of additives used for various flavors of the cigarettes are 0.1 wt % Table 1 has the results of analysis of Total Nicotine and Carbon monoxide collected. The test was conducted under the FTC (Federal Trade Commission) smoking protocol done by Arista laboratories located at Richmond, Va. Samples are selected by a random sampling method from the cigarettes prepared as described above.
  • As shown in Table 1, the cigarettes made of the components of this invention emitted nicotine less than 0.02 mg/cigarette which is much less than the other commercial cigarette, for example, Marlboro Light 0.69 mg/cigarette. The taste of the cigarette made from the tobacco leaf substitute of this invention is estimated to be the same as that of a commercial cigarette made of typical tobacco leaves.
