Newly published behavioral intentions study shows adult cigarette users more likely to use vaping brand
MELBOURNE, Florida (April 17, 2023) – Smokers 21 and older are far more likely to use or consider using the BIDI® Stick brand of electronic vaping devices than are adults who don’t smoke or vape, according to a recently published study.
In the nationwide study of 8,056 participants, legal age adult smokers and current vape users—people who represent intended users of the BIDI® Stick—reported moderate levels of positive intention to use a BIDI® Stick regularly in each of the brand’s 11 flavors. Unintended users of the BIDI® Stick – i.e., adults who have never, have never regularly or do not currently smoke cigarettes and/or use vape devices – reported far lower levels of intention to use a BIDI® Stick, the study concluded.
“Our focus has always been to provide adult smokers with an alternative to combustible cigarettes,” said Niraj Patel, founder and CEO of Bidi Vapor, LLC, Melbourne, Florida. “This study shows that our approach to the market has been successful, in that we’re appealing to adult smokers and not people who don’t or have never smoked or vaped before.”
The study was published in the journal Drug Testing and Analysis’ special issue on vaping in March 2023. Authors of the study article were Christopher Russell, Willie J. McKinney, and Ian M. Fearon. Here’s a link to the article, which is free to read and download.
Study authors also conclude that the BIDI® Stick “may also be acceptable to a moderate proportion of adult smokers as a partial or complete replacement for cigarettes.”
Data from this study “can be used as input parameters to improve modeling of the effects that the BIDI® Stick e-cigarette may have on overall smoking-related morbidity and mortality in the U.S.,” study authors said.
