Vaping and (I can't stress this enough) synthetic THC atomizers are 𝗡𝗢𝗧 the same, they are literally only synonymous in delivery method.
This unfortunate 𝗙𝗔𝗖𝗧 is often dismissed entirely by an alarmingly
growing number of devious untrustworthy media entities that lack the journalistic integrity to deliver real information by delivering obscure and embellished false/irrelevant information. The innocent (and less than research savvy public) are left to ingest half truths and smoke/mirror tactics to fuel political and corporate agendas.
The true price here?
𝗟𝗶𝘃𝗲𝘀. Innocent and completely savable lives that
rely on a safer alternative (vaping) to kick the 4000+ chemicals they ingest smoking analog tobacco.
𝗔𝗟𝗟 3 of the deaths in the US involving e-cigarettes were THC pens/pods with Vitamin E-acetate. Vitamin E acetate is THE main focus right now in regards to vaping harm research.
Also - these pods seem to be either counterfeit or sub-standard; industry standard THC/CBD vaporizers do not seem affected at this time.
Furthermore with cannabis, there are a variety of THC extraction methods. Many manufacturers using shit like *butane* and other things you definitely don't want to be inhaling. In theory, the solvents are removed, but NEVER completely 100%.
You can pay more for oil that's extracted using liquefied CO2. If you're going to inhale a solvent, why not as a manufacturer, go for the safer solvent? Since, unlike hydrocarbons, our body is already constantly producing it and passing it through our lungs anyway.
If you vape ANY kind of OIL, you WILL end up with lipid pneumonia EVENTUALLY. Every single ecig forum with a DIY section have users of vaping products vehemently advising users to NEVER, EVER use flavorings suspended in oil base.
No reputable and caring vape manufacturer will touch oil with a ten foot pole, and rightfully so. They actually CARE about their customers.
PEOPLE we have GOT to wake up. The media is NOT journalistically responsible. They WILL purposely deceive us and take advantage of click bait and fan-the-flames controversial topics to increase traffic and material consumption.
From a caring and desperate vaper of 6 years with ZERO related health problems. I stand strongly by these products for harm reduction. I hope and pray you all take the few minutes it requires to find true and honest information regarding vaping and it's safety.
Vaping is at least 97% SAFER:
Nicotine is no worse than caffeine:
Vaping has no long term health effects:
