In August 2018, Cuttwood updated the packaging of its products sold in the U.S.A. to comply with new FDA and state label requirements. The products and authentication features discussed and pictured below reflect products that were produced by Cuttwood prior to August 2018. Pictures of the updated Cuttwood packaging currently being produced for the U.S. market may be viewed in the “Flavors” portion of this website.

1. BUY FROM REPUTABLE RETAILERS. The best way to ensure the purchase of authentic Cuttwood products is to only buy from reputable retail shops and trusted online retailers.

2. BOTTLE SIZES. Authentic Cuttwood bottled e-liquid is sold in 16.5, 30, 60 and 120 mL bottle sizes only.

3. LABEL DESIGN (FRONT PANEL). Authentic Cuttwood bottled e-liquid have labels that are printed only in English and have the label designs shown in the pictures presented below. (Note: The label designs for Unicorn Milk, Sugar Drizzle and Mega Melons were updated to the designs pictured below in the middle of 2016, and any bottles currently being sold with the old label designs or designs that differ in any way from the labels below are either expired or counterfeit and should not be purchased.)

5. LABEL DESIGN (SIDE PANELS). In addition to updating the design of the front panels of Cuttwood’s bottle labels, the side panels were also updated to move the flavor ingredient listing from the left panel of the labels to the right panel, so as to have only health warnings shown on the left label panel. The Cuttwood “C” logo on the right panel was also rotated counter-clockwise at approximately a 45 degree angle. (The “C” logo on the right panel was previously printed vertically without any rotation.)


Authentic Cuttwood bottled e-liquid features a black tamper-evident plastic neck wrap that is imprinted with a repeating pattern of Cuttwood’s “C” logo and the words “AUTHENTIC CUTTWOOD”. Cuttwood-branded bottles that have a missing, torn or clear neck wrap may have been tampered with or may be counterfeit and should not be purchased.

7. BATCH CODE AND USE BY DATE. Authentic Cuttwood bottled e-liquid should have a “BATCH” code and “USE BY” date that is laser-etched into the label. The USE BY date is depicted on Month/Year format. Cuttwood e-liquid should be used by the end of the month indicated by the USE BY date (e.g. Cuttwood e-liquid that shows a 10/18 USE BY date should be used by October 31, 2018). The BATCH code and USE BY dates should feel rough to the touch as a result of Cuttwood’s laser-etching process. The BATCH code and USE BY dates are not printed with ink.
