Our CEO Chris Cowart released a statement addressing the recent rise in reports of illness and death related vaping and thought it may be of interest to you to read it:
"The reports have created an understandable increase in public awareness and lots of questions regarding health and safety issues. It is important at this time of heightened anxiety and sensitivity to take a moment and carefully examine the underlying facts surrounding this controversy.
First in a briefing this past Friday, the Center for Disease Control (CDC) reported these cases are NOT tied to a specific product or brand. The majority of victims stated using cartridges containing THC. In most cases, these products are counterfeit or purchased on the black market in an illegal fashion. One common ingredient seems to be Vitamin E. While safe when used topically or in a liquid capsule form, Vitamin E may be HARMFUL when vaped. Often used as an inexpensive "cutting" agent for THC oils, it can cause irritation and possible infection in the lungs, resulting in severe respiratory illness which requires immediate medical treatment. Left unattended it can lead to water in the lungs and serious outcomes up to and including death. As unfortunate as this is, it is important that we educate our consumers on our CBD vaping products to avoid confusion and fear.
