This is an important time for the vaping industry with the recent news about American vapers’ lung illness and deaths. But what is the truth?
The illegal THC cartridges and the Vitamin E contained might be the culprit
The cause of this illness has been identified as illegal black market THC vaping cartridges which likely contained the additive Vitamin E Acetate. The CDC has not stated that the illnesses were caused by vaping nicotine and has confirmed: “Deaths linked to vaping often involved THC products, not nicotine”.
