In order to reduce harmful substances in cigarette smoke, the use of activated carbon filters is recommended. The activated carbon binds pollutants such as tar and nicotine and effectively increases the filtration effect. For everyone who cares about their health and appreciates a mild and pleasant smoke!

Take a deep breath with pollutant-reducing cigarette filters
Activated carbon is used for pipe filters or cigarette filters as well as for some cigarillos. These filters filled with activated carbon absorb pollutants from the smoke and make it soft and scratch-free. The activated carbon has a porous surface and functions like a sponge. The smoke passes through the carbon on its way through the filter, whereby a large part of the pollutants settle in the activated carbon and remain in the filter. Larger filters can be used several times as long as the activated carbon is not lumpy.
Tip: Shake the filter next to your ear. If you can hear the activated carbon move inside, your filters can be used another time.

Do activated carbon filters also filter active substances from the smoke?
For many smokers there is a decisive reason not to use activated carbon filters: The misbelief that activated carbon also binds desired substances and thus impairs the effect of herbs when smoking. If you have the feeling that cigarettes with activated carbon filters have a different effect than ones with normal paper filters, you are not completely wrong: Since the activated carbon filters nicotine from the smoke, the consumer simply lacks the nicotine flash. However, the activated carbon only filters water-soluble substances out of the smoke. This means that all non-water-soluble active ingredients and essential oils are not bound by the activated carbon and pass through the filter without any problems. Experience the full effect combined with a smooth and gentle smoking experience!
