It's an alkaloid found in the nightshade family of plants(solanaceae)which constitutes approximately 0.6%~3.0% of dry weight of tabacco wiht biosynthesis taking place in the roots and accumulating in the leaves.
The substance acts as stimulants in mammals and is one of the main factors for the dependence-forming properties of tabacco smoking.According to American Heart Association nicotine addiction has historically one of the hardest addictions to break.

It's a chemical commonly found in plants which kind of acts as a natural insecticide.

It makes up between 1-3% of the weight of tobacco and acts as a stimulant in mammals.

"Nicotine is an alkaloid found in the nightshade family of plants (Solanaceae) which constitutes approximately 0.6–3.0% of dry weight of tobacco, with biosynthesis taking place in the roots, and accumulating in the leaves. It functions as an antiherbivore chemical with particular specificity to insects; therefore nicotine was widely used as an insecticide in the past, and currently nicotine analogs such as imidacloprid continue to be widely used.

In low concentrations (an average cigarette yields about 1 mg of absorbed nicotine), the substance acts as a stimulant in mammals and is one of the main factors responsible for the dependence-forming properties of tobacco smoking. According to the American Heart Association, "Nicotine addiction has historically been one of the hardest addictions to break." The pharmacological and behavioral characteristics that determine tobacco addiction are similar to those that determine addiction to drugs such as heroin and cocaine."

Nicotine is a highly addictive substance that occurs naturally in tobacco. It is the active ingredient in tobacco smoke. It has a pungent odor and an acrid taste. Nicotine is defined as a poisonous, oily, pale yellow substance that turns brown upon exposure to air. In concentrated form, nicotine is used as a potent insecticide.

The amount of nicotine which occurs in tobacco leaves ranges from 2% to 7%. IF YOU WANT TO LEARN MORE GO TO SITE BELOW.

Its a bad material in cigarettes that get you addicted to smoking and then youll smoke until one day the smoke in front of you says

Nicotine is an alkaloid found in a plant called "Nightshade "
An alkaloid is a chemical compound which occurrs naturally and it contains basic nitrogen atoms.. (produces - morphine,caffiene,anastetic,nicotine etc)

Nicotine was once used as an insecticide as it functions as an antiherbivore chemical...

To make cigarettes with Nicotine - Very small amounts of the chemical is used.. which is why there are different "mg" strenghts of cigarettes.
