Nicotine Metabolites…

Nicotine Metabolites:

JD: What metabolites of nicotine re formed within the body, after it has been metabolised.

JLH: There are different metabolites, but the most important one, in quantities, is cotinine which has almost no pharmacological properties, at least in terms of addiction. Nicotine is transformed into cotinine for about 70-80%, the rest of the metabolites represent small amounts.
