Not tobacco. Non nicotine. 100% Botanical!


Not a tobacco product.

Botanika 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."




New formulas can easily be created from existing eLiquid formulas. Changes may be required to account for the concentration of the extract blend. Botanika has a pleasant, naturally sweet flavor that can offset your need for additional sweetener in your formulas. Botanika blends particularly well with teas, desserts and complex fruit flavors.


Most people prefer the effect of adding 3% Botanika to an existing eliquid formula then adjusting the concentration up or down to control the effect. Botanika delivers two gentle stimulants plus an herb for mood and an herb for appetite control and detox. Higher concentrations of Botanika can create a strong but natural stimulant effect.


Typical feedback is thatBotanika has a more pleasurable flavor than nicotine. Users comment that the lack of an uncomfortable throat hit has allowed them to vape consistently without negative side effects. Botanika is naturally sweet and has a slight "fig and tea" flavor profile that is typically not noticed at 3% concentration.



People generally experience a boost of energy and mood enhancement then notice the appetite control and detox effect.
