LAIKA™ (pronounced Lye- Kah) was developed to provide adult smokers with the tobacco flavor, scent and ritual of smoking, but without the nicotine and tobacco.
LAIKA™ uses a proprietary base plant refinement process to mimic tobacco. The effects of nicotine are replaced by the calming and relaxing qualities offered by terpenes.
LAIKA’s products cover the most popular taste profiles recognized by Adult Smokers across America: Menthol, Original & Smooth.
Welcome to LAIKA’s tobacco & nicotine-free journey.
Quality & Experience
This isn’t the first road trip for the team behind LAIKA™, with over 20 years of working within the tobacco industry, they have had their hands across some of the most recognized brands within the tobacco industry. Through this experience, they’ve come to realize that the small details make the difference and it’s necessary to become obsessed with every little component to give consumers a relevant smoking alternative.
Laika was a space dog, who became one of the first animals in space, and the first animal to orbit the Earth. Laika, a stray mongrel from the streets of Moscow was selected to be the occupant of the Soviet spacecraft Sputnik2 that was launched into outer space on November 3rd, 1957.
Laika’s journey helped with early day space research and although it proved to be fatal, Laika’s legacy has lived on through space history and popular culture. Our aim is to commemorate her and to offer dogs better lives moving forward.
