Bidi Vapor is opposed to all illegal underage tobacco use, including ENDS use, by minors (under 21). We have taken various measures to ensure its products are not marketed toward or sold to minors.
Bidi Vapor has taken all the necessary steps to combat against rampant underage use of vapor products with its BIDI® Youth Access Prevention Measures. Aside from the tamper-resistant packaging and businesslike design, we have implemented security measures to curb underage vapers from accessing our BIDI® Sticks. From age-gated access to our website, to obligating retailers to share in the responsibility of restricting youth access, we stand by and advocate for the message that no underage clients shall be able to access vape products.
Bidi Vapor is committed to fully complying with all applicable laws and regulations. We have gone above and beyond regulatory requirements to implement strict marketing restrictions and youth access prevention measures. A few of the measures Bidi Vapor and Kaival Brands have implemented to protect minors include the following:
Bidi Vapor took the initiative of adopting single-word, non-characterizing terms to identify its BIDI® Stick products (e.g., Tropic, Marigold, Solar, Winter, Dawn, Classic, Gold, Zest, Regal, Summer, and Arctic) to better align with the FDA’s Enforcement Priorities Guidance and further distinguish BIDI® Sticks from kid-friendly foods, drinks, and other non-ENDS products that are often marketed and/or appealing to youth.
Bidi Vapor discontinued its online direct-to-consumer (DTC) sales of the BIDI® Stick (all flavors) through its age-restricted website (www.bidivapor.com) to help address the larger concerns regarding youth access to ENDS.
We lead by example.
Bidi Vapor’s partners are expected to share in the responsibility of youth access prevention . We have a signed agreement to bind them to this responsibility – the Retailer Pledge.
We discontinued our Direct-to Consumer services and stopped selling our products online in compliance to the PACT Act. Currently our products are being sold by GoPuff and our trusted partners and distributors who signed our Retailer and Wholesaler Agreement.
We encourage our direct retailer partners to comply with age-verification and underage sales restrictions through our agreement.
The Retailer Pledge serves as a contract to ensure that our authorized resellers observe high-quality monitoring, assessments, and commitment not to engage non-smokers and underage youth with any vape products.
At Bidi Vapor, we pride ourselves in our consistent and strong efforts to prevent possession and access of electronic cigarettes to minors. To aid our efforts, we strongly encourage close parental guidance and effective education to the underaged population. We believe this is vital to prevent the use of e-cigarettes of minors.
As a parent, it is imperative to determine the signs of whether your child may be using electronic cigarettes or not. Moreover, to effectively educate your children, it’s crucial you are educated as well in regards to the different varieties of electronic cigarettes and the e-liquids contained within it. Ensure you make time to talk to your child on the adverse effects and consequences that come with the usage of nicotine. This is an opportunity for you to impart awareness to your children, first hand, on the potential dangers of nicotine use.
For those kids who might still be tempted to shop nicotine products, we would encourage you to store your ATM cards, credit cards, and identification cards safely to lessen possible access for your kids.
