Turns out stuff that is save to eat may not be save to vaporise and inhale. But nobody really cared.
This is **the** one single most important part to take away from these vaping deaths.
On the surface, you wouldn’t have guessed this was the problem, but I think this would be akin to someone thinking that lacing cigarettes with mercury or radioactive material or cyanide would be a good idea at the end of the 19th century. If the cigarettes won’t kill you, one of those three will.
EDIT: in case anyone here is confused the THC additives and Vitamin E Acetate were added (according to what I’ve read and heard) by **black market, non-certified makers of juul cartridges.** Much like moonshine was created by people who were not properly certified to make moonshine.
EDIT 2, more accurate info from /u/ladyavacadose : Yes because you’re saying “thc additives” ? were added to juul cartridges which are just supposed to be nicotine and that’s not true at all. They are just black market thc cartridges. They do not look like juul cartridges or fit on a juul.
So, it’s exactly what everyone in the industry knew it was weeks, if not months ago?
THC *Adulterant … *Dilutent .. not additive… “added to vape products”
Vitamin E Acetate is not an additive added to THC.
This is added as filler on knock off illegal brands of THC pods. These are sold exclusively in the black market. The reason it’s added is because it made the oil thick which give the impression of quality because of the misconception that thick oil = good quality.
Reportedly some of these knock off brands made their way into a few dispensaries, this seems rare but happened.
CDC tested knock off brands and legal brands.
Vaping THC oil is safe if you buy from reputable and legal brands and dispensaries. Vaping flower is safe if you buy from reputable and brands and dispensaries.
Don’t cheap out. Stay legal and get good brands.
