Don't Vape THC Oil!
Dank Vapes are getting lots of press at the moment. Unfortunately for the industry, not for great reasons. As a result, this is causing backlash to the vaping industry as a whole. However, vaping and Dank Vapes are very different. You may have read headlines such as “Illicit cannabis vaping products could be behind US deaths.”
Sky News reports how in a study in the New England Journal of Medicine, it was found that 24 out of the 41 with the mysterious, life-threatening, lung illness said they used Dank Vapes.
What is Dank Vapes?
Dank Vapes is a mysterious black market brand selling THC oil cartridges for people to vape. You may know that THC comes from the cannabis plant and has psychoactive effects. This THC oil contains vitamin E acetate, which is a thickening agent. The effect of this thickening agent on the lungs is unclear but is said to create pneumonia-like symptoms. The US Food and Drug Administration has suggested that people stop vaping THC oils immediately.
The illegal cartridges brought on the black market contain a distilled oil from the cannabis plant. However, sellers can also add other ingredients to make their supply last longer. These additional items could well be dangerous to health. There have been a number of cases of the lung illness and even deaths which relate to vaping Dank Vapes and other illegal THC cartridges.
One study interviewed 53 patients, of which 80% said they had used a cannabis vape product in the last 3 months prior to their symptoms.

Why are people vaping Dank Vapes?
Dank Vapes offers ways to get THC to people, even in countries where it is illegal. In places where THC is legal, the company provides cheaper alternatives. However, with such bad press, is it really worth it?
What cannabis can I vape instead?
CBD is the legal and well-known cannabinoid which comes from the cannabis plant. This is LEGALLY sold in the UK and many other countries. It does not contain THC oil, or vitamin E acetate or any other rubbish (when brought from a reputable seller). The way to check you are buying from a reputable and trustworthy source is by asking for a certificate of analysis. This will show you the breakdown of the products so you know EXACTLY what it contains.
CBD e-liquid is infused with CBD. It is not oil. You should not put your tincture drops in your vape device, just as you wouldn’t try to vape cooking oil. Please, make sure you do not buy your CBD or any THC oil from the black market. Buy CBD from trustworthy companies.
What will CBD do?
CBD will not get you high. Instead, it has more therapeutic benefits. It can help with conditions and ailments such as depression, anxiety, nausea, pain, inflammation, sleep disorders, Parkinsons, epilepsy and more. If you are searching for Dank Vapes THC oil to help with any of these, then try CBD e-liquid instead. Be kind to your body, know what you are taking.
