No PMTA. No TPD. No Tobacco Taxes. Not Synthetic Nicotine.
Ability to release new products.
Alterna is a botanical product, it is not classified as a new tobacco product.
"Under Proposition 56, effective April 1, 2017, any item containing nicotine or tobacco is considered a “tobacco product” for purposes of taxation under the Cigarette and Tobacco Products Tax Law. Therefore, starting April 1, 2017, tobacco products excise tax will be due on the distribution in California of electronic cigarettes containing nicotine and/or eLiquid and eJuice products containing nicotine.
Based on the product information, your Elixir products would not fall into the Proposition 56 tobacco definition and are not subject to the tobacco products tax. Therefore, your company is not required to register for CA Cigarette and Tobacco License."
Alterna™ is a proprietary blend of botanical extracts that combine to deliver full spectrum support for moving away from nicotine. Our proprietary blend delivers two gentle stimulants plus support for anxiety, stress, appetite and detox. Everything you need to stop smoking and kick the addiction to nicotine while continuing to enjoy vaping!
Alterna is designed to mimic the physiological effects people experience when smoking but without any of the damaging effects that nicotine has on dopamine levels.
A WAY FORWARD TOWARDS TRUE HARM REDUCTION
New formulas can easily be created from existing eLiquid formulas. Changes may be required to account for the concentration of the extract blend. Alterna has a pleasant, naturally sweet flavor that can offset your need for additional sweetener in your formulas. Alterna blends particularly well with teas, desserts and complex fruit flavors.
We prefer the effect of adding 15% Alterna to an existing non nicotine formula then adjusting the concentration up or down to control the effect. Alterna blends well with formulas using mainstream flavor profiles and will provide a slight natural sweetness to your blends. It is not intended to compete with your flavor profile but some mixologists may prefer to account for Alterna as a flavor component of a formula.
Typical feedback is that Alterna has a more pleasurable flavor than nicotine. Multiple users have commented that the lack of a strong “throat hit” has allowed them to vape consistently without negative side effects.
