Types of Cigarettes

There is no type of safe cigarette, but there certainly is a wide array of them. Different types of cigarettes are usually classified by flavor, but specialty cigarettes provide different features, such as smokeless or electronic cigarettes. Specialty cigarettes are normally considered novelty items, and are generally harder to obtain than the normal types.

Non-Menthol Filtered Cigarettes

Non-menthol cigarettes with a filter are the most common type of cigarette. They come in two standard lengths, "kings" and "100's." 100's are longer, but often skinnier than king-sized cigarettes. They come in full flavor, light and ultra light varieties, the difference being the strength of the flavor.

Menthol Filtered Cigarettes

Menthol cigarettes come in the same sizes as non-menthol filtered cigarettes. The difference is that the tobacco is mixed with a substance called menthol, imbuing them with a minty flavor. There are full flavor, light, and ultra light menthol cigarettes as well.

Roll Your Own

Some people choose to roll their own cigarettes to save on cost. These cigarettes can be filtered, by making them with a rolling machine, or unfiltered by using papers that are gummed on one side.

Special Flavors

Some cigarettes come with different flavoring options added. Clove, orange, vanilla, and cherry are some of the options available. These are generally only found in specialty shops, and are usually more costly.

Novelty Cigarettes

Electronic cigarettes and smokeless cigarettes are two types of novelty cigarettes. Electronic cigarettes vaporize the nicotine, do not contain tobacco and do not create any first or secondhand smoke, but allow the smoker to still get the rush of nicotine, the main drug in tobacco.
