The Golden Harvest, the new e-cigarette market created by the California Attorney General, is taking off.
But it has been largely unproven, and the vaping industry is still reeling from the FDA’s decision to ban it in March.
So how did the Golden Harvest go from a relatively unknown market to the new market that it is now?
It’s a story of a new, untested technology, a new market, and an entirely different regulatory environment, the experts told Business Insider.
The industry is a bit of a mystery.
It is so new that regulators don’t know where it fits into the larger tobacco market.
The only official product information is from the Tobacco Control Agency.
It’s a lot of data to sort through, which is why the FDA hasn’t released the full report, the expert said.
It doesn’t have the full picture yet.
But the experts said that there are several factors that have made the market so untested.
The market is nascent, they said, and regulators are still trying to figure out how to best regulate it.
And the product itself is still quite experimental.
“There are so many things that we don’t understand yet about it that make it difficult for us to predict how this market will perform and what the long-term impact is going to be,” said David Bier, a former tobacco lawyer who now runs the e-liquid industry website LiquidScience.com.
“But I think it’s clear that the technology is still very new, and there are so few data points and so many unanswered questions that we’re in the early stages of the innovation process.”
It was also the first product of its kind to come from the state of California.
The California Attorney Generals Office has been investigating the Golden Harvests since March, and announced on March 31 that it would ban it.
California is home to the largest number of vape shops, including Vapor Lab in San Francisco.
The company is planning to open a second shop in Oakland, according to an email sent to customers on March 28.
“California will be the first state in the nation to ban the production and sale of e-cigarettes, with a full regulatory approach that takes into account the harm caused by the use of e, and will provide a framework for regulation,” the company wrote.
California’s new law does not specifically ban e-cigs.
But the state’s ban on vaping has caused some anxiety.
“I think California’s new laws are incredibly discriminatory,” said Robert Schreiber, the director of the Center for Tobacco Control Research and Education at the University of California, San Francisco, who has studied the new industry.
“We need to be careful to say that the ban on the sales of e cigs is really not a ban on e-cig sales.”
The new regulations also aren’t a blanket ban.
Some states are looking at e-liquids as a tobacco product, while others are banning them outright.
Some vaping shops are already prohibited from selling them to minors, and some are banning the sale of tobacco products to people under 18.
But a California law that goes into effect in the next few months will only allow the sales and sale, respectively, of e cigarettes and tobacco products.
That means there are still plenty of places where people can still buy e cigarettes, Schreiber said.
But those are all regulated markets, which means the state can’t ban the sale to minors.
A new regulatory environment in California has also led to a new brand of e cigarette that is a lot more expensive than its competition, and that makes it more difficult to get a foothold in a market that is still nascent, said Michael Hiltzik, CEO of the California Vaping Association.
It doesn’t mean that there isn’t an opportunity for vaping to grow in the state, said Schreitzer, of the Tobacco Innovation Center.
There is a huge demand for vaping.
But as the e cig market matures, we need to get into the business of expanding the market and making it more accessible to a broader range of people.
That’s why the Golden Hards are trying to market to smokers who are not currently smoking, by making them aware of their new e cigarette options.
They have even started advertising on billboards around the state.
The state is also starting to make e cigarettes more appealing to non-smokers, including those who are smokers.
“In California, the market is still fairly young, so it’s not like we’re getting anywhere,” Schreitzk said.
“There’s going to always be a place for a little more experimentation in the market.
It’ll take time, but we’re trying to make it as accessible as possible to a wider range of consumers.”
California may be trying to give the e cigarettes a second chance, but the new laws aren’t going to make up for the fact that the Golden harvest is still in its
