Vaping Illness Tied to a Chemical NOT Found in Organic CBD Vape Products
There has been a great deal of hysteria in the news as of late, implicating general vaping in a series of illnesses. The problem with this sensationalized coverage is that it casts a wide net over vaping in general, while it is now apparent that it these illnesses are related to a very specific chemical.
As reported by News 12 Connecticut, the culprit in the vaping illness outbreak is actually vitamin E acetate, which is found in e-cigarettes and some other vaping devices. According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, “We are in a better place in terms of having one very strong culprit”, following new studies that found this chemical as the common factor in vape-related illnesses.
Vitamin E acetate has been used as a thickening agent in vaping fluid, most notably in black market cartridges. This substance becomes sticky when vaped and can therefore stay in the lungs, causing damage.
