Nicotine is an organic compound found in certain plants, predominantly tobacco. It can also be found in lower quantities in tomatoes, potatoes, eggplant, cauliflower, green peppers and in some teas. When absorbed in small amounts, nicotine can heighten alertness and/or instill a feeling of calm and relaxation. The effects of nicotine can last from minutes to hours, and the effects of the experience can be habit-forming.
