Exotic carts A few years ago, several marijuana edibles companies in Colorado branded their packaging to look like mainstream candy brands from Hershey’s. Hershey’s sued these companies for simply copying its products likeness, including colors, fonts, logos, designs, and mascots. The court ruled that since these products were manufactured for profit, and didn’t offer any artistic or social commentary, that they violated Hershey’s trademarks.
Some Exotic vape packages bite mainstream trademarks. For instance, one flavor is called “Fruity Pebbles,” and its package looks an awful lot like the front sides of a Fruity Pebbles cereal boxes.
Legit, licensed weed companies are fully aware of this trademark issue, and they no longer would offer something like a Fruity Pebbles vape that mimics the actual cereal box. Highly publicized lawsuits have that effect on compliant businesses.
Basically, if you see cartoon characters, mascots, or logos being mimicked, parodied, or just straight up copied – like you’ll also see with Monopoly Carts, Mario Carts, Star Carts, and Cartnite carts – you’re looking at some fake AF vape brands.
Some Exotic vapes come in sealed, plastic bag packaging that you rip open. This style of packaging comes with wild designs, like a yellow lemonade cyclops version of the Kool-Aid Man holding a green, bubbling, toxic-looking concoction in his hand that’s labled with the letters “EC” on it, which obviously stands for “Exotic Carts.” It’s also probably a representation of the type of poison oil that’s loaded into their vape carts, so…
Other Exotic vapes come in boxes printed with fruit, slushies, gushers, or other luring imagery on them. What do they all have in common, you ask? That damn stoned cyclops eye.
