Recent headlines in the media over the safety of vaping have some people understandably concerned. With a spate of emergency room admissions in various states, it turns out tainted vape pods caused the issues.

While vaping has long-been touted as a safe alternative to smoking, several serious lung issues have the industry up in arms. And while all reputable vape companies – whether they sell E-cigarettes with nicotine, THC or CBD – ensure there are no nasties in their products, people have been purchasing more “affordable” THC and CBD vape pods from street dealers and pop-up markets. As a result, numerous people have been sent to the hospital with serious injuries.

Recent reports have confirmed that 22 individuals were hospitalized with vaping related issues across the Midwest over the past few weeks. Patients from three states attended hospital emergency rooms with severe breathing problems, while many had to be assisted with their breathing to keep them alive.

Meanwhile, in California, seven people were hospitalized in Hanford after they purchased and consumed tainted vape cartridges containing THC (the psychoactive element in cannabis). The issues in California were so severe that even the Kings County public health department issued a warning advising people not to buy vape cartridges from unknown sources and certainly not from street dealers.

There are some essential things to look out for when it comes to purchasing vape pods. Whether it’s nicotine, CBD or THC Vape Juice one is seeking, here are some smart rules of thumb to follow.

Buy From Reputable Sources

While the vaping industry is mostly unregulated, there are some rules and regulations in place to keep consumers safe. No matter which vape juice or vape pods (cartridges) you buy, it’s always a good idea to do some homework and ensure that the company selling the product are legitimate and have a good reputation.

Companies with a solid reputation will usually have a lot of good online reviews and will be well-known in the industry. The main point here is to buy from a company and not from a random street dealer or market. All of the vape pods, which led to the various health issues were purchased from such places.

Always Read The Label

Obviously, in the majority of cases when vape pods are purchased from street dealers or markets, there is no label on the product to read. That’s the first red flag as all reputable vape manufacturers have clear labeling across all their products.

Legitimate label information will include details of the ingredients inside, a short profile of the nicotine or THC/CBD content and other information, usually about storage of the item. If you buy a vape cartridge without clear labeling, you are potentially opening yourself up to a substandard product which could be damaging to your health.

Check Third-Party Lab Results

In this day and age, all reputable vape producers send their products to an approved third-party lab for rigorous testing. The very best companies will even have their nicotine, or CBD vape juice checked on a batch-by-batch basis, even though that costs extra for them. Third-Party lab results for vape juice are the gold standard when it comes to the nascent vaping industry.

These labs test for nicotine, CBD/THC levels, and profiles but also for additives. As a matter of course, labs test the liquids for things like pesticides, chemical additives, solvents, and heavy metals, and this information is provided clearly and transparently to customers.

Never Made in China

One of the main concerns doctors in various states had with the spate of admissions was the fact that a lot of the products appeared to be made in China. The vaping industry in the west may be unregulated on the whole. However, there are some standard rules and procedures in place that are adhered to.

Unfortunately, nicotine and CBD/THC vape juices made in China are unregulated and can contain some dangerous additives. In China, no third-party lab testing is carried out, and the source of the nicotine, CBD, or THC in the product can also be questionable.

Final Thoughts

When purchasing any type of vape product, whether for nicotine, CBD, THC, or any other matter, try to buy products that are made in America or Europe. Always ensure you’re purchasing from reputable vendors who source high-quality extracts only. Always read the label and try to ensure you check any third-party lab results provided by the company. Finally, no matter what, never buy vape pods or E-liquid from black market street dealers or pop-up markets where the source of the product is unclear.

New Vaping Bill: Effective March 2021 No More Mail Order Of CBD & Delta-8 THC Vape Carts

Over the last couple of weeks, congress has been going back and forth trying to iron out the framework of a 5,593-page COVID-19 relief bill, the longest bill ever written in U.S. history, and buried deep within its text is a provision that will change the vaping industry as we know it.

Over the last couple of weeks, congress has been going back and forth trying to iron out the framework of a 5,593-page COVID-19 relief bill, the longest bill ever written in U.S. history, and buried deep within its text is a provision that will change the vaping industry as we know it.

The main problem with this COVID “relief” bill, aside from the strange spending points, is that it’s being used as a front to pass legislation that has nothing to do with the virus. At the top of our list is a note on page 5,136 that will ban the United States Postal Service (USPS) from shipping vaping products to adult consumers. Although it was intended to be applied specifically to the tobacco industry, thanks to non-specific and sloppy drafting, the effects will be felt well beyond the confines of nicotine products. In-face both CBD vape carts and Delta-8 THC vape cartridges, will also be banned…

In less than 90 days you will no longer be able to buy Delta-8 THC vape cartridges online!

The PACT Act

Under the Prevent All Cigarette Trafficking Act (PACT Act, which is part of the Jenkins Act), the word “cigarette” will be redefined to included all “electronic nicotine delivery system.” But despite the word “nicotine” being used in the bill, the overall definition is so broad that lawmakers have red-flagged ALL vape liquids, including those containing CBD and standalone devices to used for vaping THC and other cannabinoids.

These changes of the bill go into effect into 120 days, at which point all orders of vaping products will need to be shipped via an alternate service, which can be extremely costly and will require the signature or a recipient who is 21 years of age or older.

Additionally, starting 90 days after the enactment of this new law, all internet and mail-order businesses will be required to file length reports every month with state, native tribes, and local governments that will include details about the identity, location, and product orders of all customers who buy vaping items within their jurisdiction.

The title of the original Congress bill containing this text was The Preventing Online Sales of E-Cigarettes to Children Act, however, it is already illegal under federal law to ship vaping and tobacco products to minors, and this new version of the mandate will apply to adults in legal markets as well.

Increased risk for COVID

Logical critics argue that this new law, hidden in the text of a COVID relief bill, may actually increase the risk of one being exposed to and developing the disease, ironically. Take an elderly woman who recently switched from cigarettes to vape products to improve her health. She lives alone in a rural area and has products mailed to her to reduce the risk of catching COVID. The new law would force this hypothetical elderly woman out of her house and into the general public to shop for vape products, which increases her chances of being exposed to, not only COVID-19, but other illnesses as well, such as the flu.

“The sponsors of this legislation repeatedly refused to consider common sense amendments that would have protected youth, while also not needlessly shutting down small businesses,” says Gregory Conley, president of the American Vaping Association. “Thanks to their intransigence, the language included in the omnibus is so sloppily drafted that it will also ban the USPS from shipping CBD liquids intended to be vaporized, as well as devices intended for use with THC or other non-nicotine substances.”

He added: “There are still 36 million American adults smoking combustible cigarettes and over 400,000 will die from smoking-related illnesses this year alone. The American people should start questioning why their government is so intent on making it harder for adults to quit smoking.”

In that vein, illness that are often developed by smokers affect many of the same major organs as COVID-19, such as the lungs, oesophagus, and vascular system. When a smoker becomes infected with COVID-19 or any type of SARS virus, they will likely suffer more than a non-smoker.  

“Smokers often have serious heart and lung health problems already. Add COVID-19 to the mix and you are likely to get a very sick patient; they just don’t have the physiological reserves to deal with the massive inflammatory attack brought on by the coronavirus,” said Joseph E. Ebinger, MD,  a cardiologist with the Smidt Heart Institute at Cedars-Sinai.

Final thoughts

There was a lot of back and forth with this bill, but the main source of disagreement was the size of the stimulus checks, but there was no doubt that this vaping law would slip under the radar. Ultimately, the bill passed as was expected. Lawmakers were banking on the fact that most people won’t look it up and read through the absurdly long bill themselves, and they were right.

Now, we have 120 days before the industry as we know it, will change for what seems to be the worstLEGAL customers will no longer be able to purchase vaping products by mail order thanks to this new bill.

As far as business goes, experts predict that large, better capitalized companies will have no problem paying the costs required to be in compliance with the new regulations, while smaller companies, the mom-and-pop shops, will be the ones to suffer and eventually be pushed out of the market altogether, so if your favorite products are coming from a smaller business, you may want to stock up before they’re forced to shutter the doors.

Vaping CBD: Products to Help You Unwind This Winter

side effects of vaping cbd

No matter if or how you choose to celebrate, the holiday season can be stressful.

Whether you’re looking for stocking stuffers to finish out the gifts on your list this year or simply looking for a way to unwind yourself, CBD vapes can be an excellent option.

Cannabidiol (CBD) is a substance that is derived from cannabis. But unlike marijuana, CBD does not give the user a high.

If you are interested in trying CBD for yourself or gifting it to someone on your list this holiday season, keep reading to learn:

  • How to vape CBD
  • Potential side effects of vaping CBD to consider
  • CBD products to check out this holiday season

 

vaping CBD

Vaping is one of the many ways to consume and enjoy CBD.

 

How do I vape CBD?

Today many people have begun using vape devices or e-cigarettes to consume CBD. There are really two common ways to go about vaping CBD.

The first is by purchasing CBD vape juice. This is similar to the juice that is used by vapers who are looking for a nicotine fix from their vaping devices.

This juice can be purchased online or at a local vape shop near you. However, because the vaping industry faces very little regulation there are a wide variety of products on the shelf and it’s hard to know what is good and what is not.

Make sure to speak with an employee at the store to make sure the juice you buy is free from any unnecessary ingredients.

CBD vape juice should not contain anything other than propylene glycol, vegetable glycerin, CBD extract, terpenes, or cannabinoids.

The other most common form of vaping CBD involves purchasing prefilled cartridges filled with the oil.

These cartridges provide an easy entry point for those who are unfamiliar with more complicated vaping devices and want to try out CBD without all of the hassles of learning how to work a more complicated vaping device.

And for those who are looking for something even simpler, there are also “pods” filled with CBD that can be purchased. These pods fit popular vaping devices like JUUL and Vuse devices.

 

What are the side effects of vaping CBD?

While research into the effects of vaping CBD, or vaping in general, is still in the early stages, some side effects have been reported.

These side effects most consist of feelings of drowsiness, slight euphoria, hunger, and red eyes.

Even though CBD has not been reported to have been associated with any toxic or lethal overdoses, it is still important to start out at a moderate level and slowly increase the dosage or potency until you find the amount that is right for you.

There is no one size fits all solution to CBD and everybody’s body is a little different.

While the side effects of CBD do seem to be low, it is never a good idea to self medicate. So it is advised that you speak with a healthcare professional or your physician about what dosage would be right for you in order to achieve the effects that you desire.

 

CBD products for the holiday season

CBD comes in a variety of forms from vape pods to bath bombs, so you can find CBD products that fit your (or a loved one’s) exact preferences.

 

Top CBD Products for the Holiday Season

There are a wide variety of different ways to consume CBD. Just a few of the CBD products available include:

 

So if you or someone you know is interested in trying out CBD there are plenty of options to choose from.

Not every option works the same way for every person so if you don’t get the exact results you were hoping for, speak to your physician or even a CBD expert online or in-person to help find the right method of consumption and dosage that will work best for you.

After Black Friday and Cyber Monday, where we have seen the best deals ever on Delta 8 THC products, we thought that now finally we can get some rest, at least until Christmas. We were wrong… The best deal of the year, the Delta 8 THC $9.99 vape cartridges just got extended, so for the next 48 hrs, you can still get the same premium Delta 8 THC vape cartridges for only $9.99/cart!

However, the sellers informed us that this is the FINAL SALE, and once it is over, or when they run out of stock, the price of these Delta 8 THC vape cartridges will go back to $19.99/cart.

As always, the best deals are shared first with the subscribers of the Delta 8 Weekly newsletter, getting a head-start over the rest of you. Want to join? Subscribe below and save money on Delta 8 THC products!


THE BEST DEAL OF THE YEAR:
$8.99 DELTA 8 THC VAPE CARTRIDGES

While we saw many companies offering this week 1ml vape carts for anywhere between $15-$20, going below $10 for a product normally sold between $24.99 to $34.99 is a bold move. However, this is also a smart one, as it demonstrates an understanding that after Cyber Monday will be over, the whole pricing model is going to change. The same carts, only a week ago sold for betweem $24.99 to $34.99 will have to find a new resting point, lower than what it used to be.

Companies that will continue selling Delta 8 THC vape cartridges for $34.99 (a product that costs them no more than $5 to produce) will have to adapt or to be left aside, as the clients will be informed on their new choices.

However, why wait for Friday, when the prices will be doubled again? Get all of the vape carts you need now, as the price of $9.99/cart is the lowest one ever!
