MINNEAPOLIS) Ruyan America, Inc., Minneapolis, MN, announced today that it is launching a new product, the Ruyan RAPP E-Mystick, a patent applied for Respiratory Amplifier Personal and Portable, containing the recognized herbal remedy and dietary supplement lobelia and marketed exclusively to smoking adults as a tonic.

The RAPP E-Mystick is designed for smokers who want the look, feel and experience of a cigarette.

The product is formulated and assembled in the United States, using the finest and purest ingredients available domestically.

We call it an E-Mystick, with this variety of the product branded the RAPP. It is so new and unlike anything else in the market that it is covered by a separate, recently submitted patent that distinguishes and differentiates the RAPP from what are often referred to as E-cigarettes. The construction and components of the E-Mystick do not resemble any product currently offered in the US."

Bartkowski went on to note that the product contains none of the chemicals found in recent FDA tests of E-cigarettes, namely nitrosamines and diethylene glycol. The product is voluntarily labeled to be sold to adult smokers only and all distributors and retailers are required to sign an agreement consenting to these voluntary restrictions.
