Heat180 was created by George Laczko, a Canadian entrepreneur and Heat-Not-Burn enthusiast. George first discovered Heat-Not-Burn products when travelling in Japan. He saw numerous people using HnB devices, and later found out that they were harm reduction devices that offered healthier way to smoke.
George smoked for years but wanted to quit as his first child would soon be born. He hadn’t been able to quit with vaping alone. So he decided to give Heat-Not-Burn a try.
At first he didn’t like it but he noticed that after a week of using it he felt better. This motivated him to make a complete switch from cigarettes.
As George continued to explore the HnB industry, he discovered new and innovative products and was continuously impressed by the many flavors of HeatSticks available from different manufacturers. He wanted to spread the word about Heat-Not-Burn and so he created Heat180.com, a place for HnB enthusiasts to gather and share their experiences and opinions. George is proud that, since the website’s creation in March of 2019, people from around the world have been brought together through Heat180. He hopes that the Heat180 community can continue to grow as this exciting industry progresses.
