Do Djarum Black clove cigarettes contain nicotine?
Djarum Black Clove Cigarettes are made with tobacco, like normal cigarettes, often mixed with minced clove buds. The tobacco blend is then treated with a proprietary compound (which includes clove oil) to give them their distinctive taste. In many brands, after the cigarette is rolled, the paper is treated with a compound that may include saccharine to give the paper it’s distinctive sweet flavor. (Just the end of the filter in Djarum Blacks & some others, while in other kretek’s, the entire cigarette is treated.)
They have tar, nicotine, and other harmful elements just like any other cigarette. Tests indicate that the levels of tar and nicotine is comparable to that found in a ‘normal’ full flavor cigarette made in the US..
