Are Vape Carts Dead?

Are CBD Vape Carts Dead? Rainbow smoke, two vape carts and a white coffin.

3-20-2021

There has been some recent legislation that affects consumers and business providers of Vape Cartridges -also referred to as Vape Carts, that you may not be aware of.

The 5,593 page Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2021, which includes The Prevent All Cigarette Trafficking (PACT) Act and The Preventing Online Sales of E-Cigarettes to Children Act expressly prohibits every related component, part or accessory for e-liquid and oil vaping for BOTH nicotine and nicotine-free e-liquids including CBD and Delta 8 carts, liquids and oils. This legislation passed on Dec. 27, 2020 as part of COVID-19 stimulus relief, defines electronic nicotine delivery systems (ENDS) as “any electronic device that, through an aerosolized solution, delivers nicotine, flavor, or any other substance to the user inhaling from the device [including] an e-cigarette; an e-hookah; an e-cigar; a vape pen; an advanced refillable personal vaporizer; an electronic pipe; and any component, liquid, part or accessory of a device…without regard to whether the component, liquid, part, or accessory is sold separately from the device.”

Delivery carriers such as USPS, UPS, FEDEX, and DHL will no longer be delivering vape cartridges of any kind to BOTH consumers and businesses.

The only way around this legislation is to register with the ATF, the US Attorney General, and the State and Local Tax Administrators. This also impacts advertising. For now, exemptions are being explored, but this could take a long time.
