    Default WholeCig WTA discussion thread. All topics welcome!

    So, here it is!

    Let's talk WTA. If anyone has a question to kick it off that would be fine. Otherwise, kick back, enjoy your WTA and socialize.

    Right on.

    Oh, and feel free to let everybody know about us. We'd appreciate it at this point.

    We are making plenty. (I think, but a nice problem to have if we're not and easily solvable.)

    Unlikely FAQ's #1

    Q: Do you listen to loud punk rock in your production facility?

    A: No. Unfortunately, our punk rock is played at a medium volume in consideration of neighboring businesses in the building.


    Ball rolling real question many have is, "what is WTA?" so let's start there. WTA refers to a whole alkaloid extraction, from tobacco...but first, what is an alkaloid? That's a better starting point.

    Alkaloids are so named because of their alkaline nature, (a higher Ph) and are found in plants of all sorts, usually in a matrix of alkaloids, as is definitely so in the case of tobacco They are very often physiologically "active" in the brain, in one way or another. Caffeine is an alkaloid. So are the actives of many pharmaceuticals and street drugs.

    Nicotine is an alkaloid.

    It's the most prevalent alkaloid in tobacco by weight. It is one of over a dozen in tobacco, though, and that is the point of WTA. Just because something is more predominant in volume doesn't mean it's more significant or affecting than smaller volumes of something else. Or that they don't all work in concert in a synergistic fashion not fully understood. It's a rather short-sighted assumption IMO, to pin it all on nicotine. And it both stands to reason, and is tested in practice, of course that the so-called primary alkaloid, nicotine, is neither primarily responsible for cigarette addiction, nor entirely capable of "replacing" a cigarette.

    That oughta get ya started. Experts and enthusiasts alike, please chime in!

    Pretty blue glass doesn't protect the WTA extract from UV light the way that dark brown glass does, this is why so many great beers are in amber/brown glass rather than blue!

    As far as the expense, I think people would gladly pay an extra $1 for a glass bottle, and in bulk you will be making money on the made in USA (not China) bottles as well!

    Does this mean we can get some Leon's frozen custard flavors to add to our WTA?
