Vaping Illness In The USA - All related to THC / CBD Cartridges September 16 2019

If you have watched the news recently, you will realize that there is a witch hunt on all "vaping", and even a warning from the FDA to avoid vaping if possible.  The most critical piece of information left out by most news outlets is that NONE of the illnesses have any direct link to legal nicotine based e-liquids; if fact ALL cases are directly linked to a supplement called vitamin E acetate which is frequently added to THC or CBD based cartridges.

 

The White House has jumped to announce a ban on all flavored e-liquids, despite non-THC/CBD liquids having zero culpability in the recent outbreak of illness. However, all of initial feedback from the healthcare field shows no correlation with vaping legal, nicotine based e-liquids.

 

As a manufacturer of e-liquids with a six year track record of zero people getting sick, we don't expect you to find us completely unbiased.  That being said, here are some relevant links outlining the underlying cause of the recent vaping illnesses in the USA:

E-cigarettes are still 95% safer than smoking traditional cigarettes and Big D Vapor strongly recommends avoiding all THC / CBD cartridges in the interim.  If you use THC and/or CBD, there are dozens of alternatives to cartridges including edibles, flowers, wax, etc.  Please feel free to contact us with any questions or comments, and we will continue to manufacture safe products in Texas with 4 SAFE ingredients that are all made in the USA (Propylene Glycol, Vegetable Glycerine, Organic Nicotine, and food grade oil-free flavoring).

Sincerely,
