Vaping illnesses likely caused by vitamin E oil in cannabis e-cigs

Vaping illnesses likely caused by vitamin E oil in cannabis e-cigs”

Last week, federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention officials said they're looking at 215 possible cases across 25 states.

'This was the only thing that seemed to show up in 10 of the 18 cannabis products, ' the official told the Post.

While vitamin E is found naturally in many foods, the extract is often used as a supplement or for skin treatments. Those symptoms include shortness of breath, cough, chest pain, fever, headache, nausea and weight loss.

E-cigarettes, which have been available in the USA since about 2007 and have grown into a more than $6 billion-a-year industry, are battery-powered devices that typically heat a flavored nicotine solution into an inhalable aerosol.

The Vermont Health Department is asking the state's health care providers to report cases of respiratory illnesses linked to e-cigarettes and vaping.

The two people had been hospitalized after utilizing e-cigarettes to inhale cannabis or cannabis oils, the County Health Services Agency mentioned in a news release.

At least one vitamin E acetate vape product has been linked to each patient who submitted a product for testing.

FDA officials also revealed to NY health officials there was nothing unusual found in nicotine products but the investigation still is ongoing.

Vaping culture has spread quickly in Bahrain with vape shops mushrooming across the kingdom, ensuring easy access to all users.

Thomas declined to name the brand of the product or the dispensary where it was purchased, citing the ongoing investigation.

"Those 12 have divulged that they've vaped THC, and the vast majority of them have also mentioned vaping nicotine products as well", said Holzbauer. The officials said the death happened in July and the person had recently used a vaping device containing cannabis bought from an OR store.

The cause of the mystery illness has not been identified, but all cases involve vaping in some form. Minnesota Department of Health Epidemiologist Stacy Holzbauer said officials have interviewed a dozen of the Minnesota victims.

"We don't yet know the exact cause of these illnesses - whether they're caused by contaminants, ingredients in the liquid or something else, such as the device itself", said Dr. Ann Thomas, the public health physician at the Oregon Health Authority. Unlike nicotine, THC can be delivered only via oils when vaping. Also, don't modify your vaping products or add any substance to it that wasn't meant to be there.

The lung illnesses aren't the only health concerns being investigated that are linked to e-cigarettes. His parents say he might need a lung transplant. They're typically manufactured in China, he said, and don't have be tested for heavy metals. He now believes Juuls caused his lung injury.
