How The PMTA and New Regulations Effect The Vaping Industry and Local Businesses
Because of new regulations from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), not every vaping product you have been used to buying will be available for sale. You will have to accept the unfortunate fact that some of your favorite products or flavors might not exist anymore.
But no matter which of your favorite flavors and brands go off of the market, there are still companies offering a range of flavors, such as Madvapes, which offers more than 150 different flavors to choose from.

What Is the PMTA?
Today, all manufacturers of e-cigarettes have to submit Premarket Tobacco Product Applications (PMTA) so they can keep selling and marketing all of their vaping items. This application requires that the applicant offer scientific information that shows that this item is appropriate to protect public health.
The FDA finalized the “deeming rule” on May 10, 2016. This rule applied to pipes, e-cigarettes, hookah products, pipe tobacco, and cigars, among other products. That subjected other products to more scrutiny with the Federal Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act, amended with the Family Smoking Prevention and Tobacco Control Act.
If products were on the market before the 2007 grandfathering date, then they could keep being sold without having to get retroactive approval from the Food and Drug Administration. However, no vaping products were being sold before then.
When Was the PMTA Deadline?
The application can be a fairly long process, but the FDA does not leave that much time to prepare the application materials. After modifying the timelines several times, it finalized the submission deadline to Sept. 9, 2020.
The PMTA is the foundation when it comes to establishing business long-term locally because of the complicated process and the very high standards. Besides the fact that products have to meet certain requirements, PMTAs also require quite a bit of capital, manpower, and time.
What Does a PMTA Submission Include?
When it comes to filling out the PMTA, the company needs to put certain data on the application. This data needs to show that a certain product is appropriate when it comes to protecting the health of the public. To reach this decision and allow the company to begin marketing the product, the FDA considers several things. These might include:
- Whether people who use tobacco products currently are more or less able to stop using those products if the new product were to become available.
- The benefits and risks to the general population, such as people who might use this product, and non-users of this product.
- Whether the marketing for this product would attract those who do not use tobacco or even young adults.
- Whether those who do not use any tobacco currently would be less or more likely to start using tobacco if the new product were to become available.
- The controls, facilities, and methods used to process, manufacturer, and package that product.
What Madvapes Has Done

A Local Spotlight on Small Vape Shops That Have Gone Out of Business: Vape Wild
Because of the new regulations, many smaller vape shops have gone out of business. Let’s take a look at one of them, Vape Wild. Vape Wild had humble beginnings. Imagine in your mind three men surrounded by other smokers. But the three men wanted to help the smokers change their lives for the better.
Who Was Vape Wild?
Vape Wild was a small smoke shop that, like Madvapes, wanted to help people change their lives for the better. It was born out of the desire to offer an alternative to these smokers. The three men tried to make a brand that could offer delicious, creative flavors. The men decided to offer a unique approach to customer service, as well as unbelievable prices.
The company began out of the desire to allow others to live and to do it well. This was the first journey of the three men to the large world of vaping. They soon had created a knowledgeable team, and they all had a commitment to the cause. They created a master plan that could help them quickly climb to the top. This is how the customer-focused, fun, and unique brand that you knew and loved was created, and today, Madvapes is just as focused on offering a good experience.
Over the years, Vape Wild expanded into areas that, in the past, its founders thought would never be possible. They had a huge following on all of their social media accounts, and this grew with each passing day.
For example, this large community became its very own Facebook group and had more than 23,000 different members, and each one had their own level of sass. This vaping community came from every walk of life, and their devotion to the hobby was what kept the community growing. Today, Madvapes has a similar goal.
Vape Wild’s YouTube channel had epic videos that were produced all in-house. This level of commitment to detail meant that each of the customer service experts left no area untouched when it came to making you feel like you were a part of the family. This tradition continues on at Madvapes. To us, you are more than just a customer. You really are part of the family.
Of course, since Vape Wild offered a great deal on shipping, its customers could also have a better experience. It was not just about you spending your money there. Vape Wild also wanted you to feel good when you did spend your hard-earned cash. The same customer-centered focus lives on at Madvapes.
What Did Vape Wild Sell?
Just like Madvapes still does, Vape Wild offered more than 25 brands and over 150 different flavors. It also had vape mods and nic salts, something Madvapes still offers. Vape Wild’s founders never wanted to be comfortable specializing in just one thing.
Instead, each customer has many interests, and vaping can be a subjective experience. Vape Wild, like Madvapes, knew this from the very beginning, which is why the founders built their business around something more than putting creative flavors on the market.
Vape Wild’s clients wanted more selections, brands, and hardware. Although the company greatly diversified the product selection, it was still able to keep the prices competitive. And this is something that Madvapes will do for you now and into the future.
What Did Vape Wild Believe as a Company?
Vape Wild was known for not blending into the background. Instead, its founders wanted to stand out for their outstanding service. Polish and pretentiousness were not what they were about, and they had a commitment to avoid these things. Like Madvapes, they wanted to be a company for anyone who wants to use vaping as a way of quitting smoking.
Vape Wild’s goal was simple: to change as many lives as possible at the lowest cost possible. Then, Vape Wild would pass those savings on to its valued customers. At the same time, the owners wanted to stay as accommodating as possible. This approach is similar to what Madvapes still does today.
The people who worked for Vape Wild were what gave the company life. When a company gives its employees permission to express themselves fully, something very special happens. The company will become more than its parts. The brand was a living, changing thing, and each employee had in some way affected the brand’s face. Today, you can find this same special quality among the staff members at Madvapes.
Why Vape Wild Is Out of Business
Unfortunately, the new regulations have since forced smaller shops, such as Vape Wild, out of business. But even though Vape Wild has gone out of business, Madvapes still has over 150 flavors to choose from. Each one is designed to help you quit smoking and stay more engaged with vaping.
Plus, you don’t have to worry about whether you will enjoy the flavors. We’ve Got Your Back! We know that you might have to do some experimentation, which is why we’re offering our Two-Week You Love It Guarantee!
