THC Oil - The Culprit Behind The Recent Vaping Deaths In The USA
Throughout the United States, news outlets have been focused on the deaths and illnesses associated with THC vaping. Many news outlets have been having quite the field day with these recent Vaping Deaths only mentioning the main cause near the end of the articles - as a matter of fact, many state governments have started to push for a ban on all flavoured e-cigarettes shortly after this news broke. However, most of the accusations aimed at nicotine-based e-cigarettes have little to no basis in fact. The cause surrounding these tragedies is rooted in black market THC cartridge pens, rather than the traditional e-cigarettes that they are being associated with. It should be equally important to know, that as of this moment, there have been no reported cases in the UK.
What is THC Oil?
With recreational and medical marijuana usage being legalized or otherwise destigamatized across the US, THC (the psychoactive compound found in marijuana that produces the high) is becoming a new fad product for treating ailments of all kinds - from anxiety to pain associated with cancer. With that, new ways to consume the THC are becoming more and more prevalent in the United States. One of these is through using what is called a "cartridge pen." While these look and function similarly to e-cigarettes, they do not have a refillable tank like a nicotine-based vape will. Instead, they use a replaceable cartridge filled with concentrated THC oil. It is a relatively new phenomenon in the US, with most of its users fitting into the eighteen to thirty age range. With it becoming more popular, many individuals are seeing this as an opportunity to make a profit. It is not difficult to go on the Internet and find many guides to making the THC concentrate and put it into the cartridges for later sale.
