Dear Summit – Changes to MBV
Hello, vape fans! In this week’s Dear Summit, we are recapping the changes to MBV. As we all know, the FDA regulations have arrived coming, and we had to make some changes. Today, I’ll be walking you through a lot of the changes we’ve made.
We have discontinued our 236 mL bottle size. We discontinued these bottles to ensure consistency and presentable packaging, as per the FDA demands. It is easier to make 15 and 30 mL bottles consistent and better for our awesome customers.
Flavors, BYOJ, Flavor Shots
We had to discontinue BYOJ, flavor shots, and some of our flavors due to the FDA regulations. In the eyes of the FDA, additional flavor shots create a new unique product with each permutation, so customizable e liquid would cost an unfathomable amount of money to get approved. We had to streamline our flavor menu to keep our assessment costs realistic.
The FDA regulations state that all freebies are illegal to distribute. This goes for social media giveaways, sampling, and our additional bottles included with starter kits. We wish this were not the case, since everyone loves trying something new.
The FDA now requires age verification every time you order. We currently use BlueCheck to verify our customers are of legal vaping age. We have a blog here that explains how to use it and make sure your order goes through.
Unless you live in CA, you will only need to verify your age once. If you live in CA, you will need to verify your age every time. This can change in the future, depending on what laws are passed in certain states.
Well, vape fans. This is it for this week’s Dear Summit. If you have any questions, feel free to post them and we will answer them as best as we can! Thank you for being the best customers ever!
