“The battle against tobacco use in this country is far from over,” said CDC Director Robert R. Redfield, MD.
PECSA™ ATP’s are the first collection of products dedicated to providing the global market with safer alternatives to the use of tobacco.
“There is still much more that needs to be done to protect everyone from the harmful effects of tobacco use,” said Karen Hacker, MD, MPH, Director of CDC’s National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion.
Alternative Tobacco Products are made with PECSA™ Pure-G, our blend of pure Cannabigerolic acid (CBGA) and Cannabigerol (CBG). Our ATP's support those who wish to cease tobacco use.
ATPs are also particularly beneficial to those overcoming opioid addiction and medical patients treating chronic anxiety, stress and other mental health disorders. Please see our Over The Counter (OTC) products under Mental Health.
Despite major progress over the past half-century, tobacco use continues to be the leading cause of preventable death and disease in the United States.

World No Tobacco Day
Smoking leads to disease and disability and harms nearly every organ of the body.
According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention more than 16 million Americans are living with a disease caused by smoking. For every person who dies because of smoking, at least 30 people live with a serious smoking-related illness. Smoking causes cancer, heart disease, stroke, lung diseases, diabetes, and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), which includes emphysema and chronic bronchitis. Smoking also increases risk for tuberculosis, certain eye diseases, and problems of the immune system, including rheumatoid arthritis.
Secondhand smoke exposure contributes to approximately 41,000 deaths among nonsmoking adults and 400 deaths in infants each year. Secondhand smoke causes stroke, lung cancer, and coronary heart disease in adults. Children who are exposed to secondhand smoke are at increased risk for sudden infant death syndrome, acute respiratory infections, middle ear disease, more severe asthma, respiratory symptoms, and slowed lung growth.
