Nicotine is named after the tobacco plant Nicotiana tabacum and is the main factor responsible for the dependence-forming properties of tobacco smoking.
Nicotine is highly addictive. An average cigarette yields about 2 mg of absorbed nicotine
Nicotine's mood-altering effects are different by report: in particular it is both a stimulant and a relaxant. First causing a release of glucose from the liver and epinephrine (adrenaline) from the adrenal medulla, it causes stimulation. Users report feelings of relaxation, sharpness, calmness, and alertness. Like any stimulant, it may very rarely cause the often uncomfortable akathisia. By reducing the appetite and raising the metabolism, some smokers may lose weight as a consequence.
