    If you make your own flavoured vape juice and wanted to sell to the public. Do you need some kind of gov approval or licence?

    The most basic explanation: You would need to apply for FDA approval for your product, may or may not need a license depending on what is going on at your local level. Or manufacturing and selling it may be flat out illegal depending on which State you live in.

    Yes. If you have a spare 200 grand per flavor, per nicotine strength and a lot of time
    you might get approved.

    The ISO 6 clean-room might be a problem too

    The FDA has now made it a very complicated and expensive process.

    With all the new regs, you'd be better off just selling to friends on the down low and not try to make a living off it.;)

    This is America.....you can't even water your lawn or use your toilet without the EPA kicking down your door....making juice in your own home for sale is regarded slightly more of an immenint threat to life on the planet than nuculear waste......but hey if you wanted to sell some homegrown tobacco...no problemo.

    Hey, this is Amerika. You really think you can grow and sell anything w/o paying "them" a cut?

    When the main rib is removed from a leaf, it then falls under different, and significant categories subject to regulation and taxation, especially if it has been cured and processed..thus you find it being sold in blocks of unprocessed 'bakky you have to cure and rip yourself.
    Moreover, As soon as a grower sells dried tobacco leaves, cigarettes or any other product, that grower becomes a marketer. According to federal law, all marketers must pay tax on their sales. Penalties for non-payment of taxes can be extremely stiff. While most legal authorities don't prosecute people for selling small quantities, it's still illegal to sell any tobacco without paying the appropriate taxes. Providing tobacco to people under the age of 18 also carries significant penalties.

    Local laws regarding gardens and agricultural activities may restrict homeowners' abilities to produce their own tobacco. Homeowners who live in neighborhoods regulated by homeowners' associations may need to get permission to grow any kind of garden, and may have difficulty obtaining this permission for tobacco. Check all city and neighborhood regulations before attempting to grow tobacco plants.

    Isn't it kinda odd that we need a clean room to make a basic vape juice, but McDonald's can make your hamburger in a sewage treatment plant................

    You can't even sell milk locally without an approved facility, depending on local laws and restrictions by the state it may include how big the structure must be, type of containers used, how many sinks, drains, material the floor is made of, how thick the concrete slab must be etc. Then of course you have to factor local planning and zoning and what requirements they have for various inspections (which cost money), waiting for approval to continue building and so on.

    In one state, an 8x8 foot structure with power running to it required 3 or 4 inspections because it was on a concrete slab on private property. In that same state, same property a structure that was 10ft by 30ft required no permit because it wasn't on a concrete foundation and deemed 'portable'. In another state entirely an 8x12ft structure required no permits at all.

    As others suggested, for basic ejuice (not including what type of required facility) requires submittal to the fda for approval at a rather hefty sum and a different application (and fee) has to be paid for each flavor and each strength of juice. So cherry juice at 3mg, 6mg and 12mg requires three submissions and three fees. Labels also have to be submitted for approval. Grimm Green was talking about hurrying up and changing his labels before the cutoff date last year because any change in lettering/design would require a new submission.

    Yes off course you need government approval licence to sell any kind of vape juice, either it's home made or other.

    If I wanted to sell juice these days, I'd do what Markw4wmms suggested and just sell it under the table.
