There has been a lot of news recently around concerns of vapor cartridges causing health problems. Rest assured that if you purchase our vapor cartridges you do not have to worry. We receive regular test results from the factory that produces our cartridges and we have tested these cartridges ourselves with labs here in Washington. SKAGIT ORGANICS DOES NOT ADD VITAMIN E OR ANY OTHER DILUENT TO OUR OIL. Many companies will add glycerin or some other food grade thinning agents to their cannabis oils. This is what creates the big thick clouds of vapor most people associate with vaping. It will also increase their profits as the thinning agent is less expensive than the oil. Again, Skagit Organics does not use a thinning agent of any kind.
The reason vapor cartridges has been in the news lately has to do with thinning agents that are not meant to be ingested or vaporized. It appears from recent reporting that many vapor cartridges in the illicit market and potentially some nicotine E-juices are being cut with Vitamin E. Vitamin E is used widely in skin care products and when used topically has wonderful benefits. However when it is vaporized it appears to be a factor in many of the health problems we are hearing about. It seems that the vitamin E will vaporize and than turns back to an oil once it has been inhaled and cools in the lungs. This coating seems to reduce the ability of the lungs to exchange oxygen and carbon dioxide causing potentially fatal respiratory problems.
All of our products are tested for residual solvents and pesticides. One of the major benefits of purchasing a vapor product from a licensed cannabis company, like Skagit Organics, with a reputation for providing clean, consistent cannabis products is that our products have been tested by state accredited labs right here in Washington. Please make your purchases wisely and choose your vapor products from Skagit Organics.
