Given all of the recent reports regarding lung-related illnesses surrounding “Vaping” we want to make a few things very clear. First, the word “Vaping” and “E-cigarette” are being used by public health officials and the media when referring to both nicotine and marijuana/THC products and it is very confusing for consumers to decipher between the two. Second, reports from health departments in CA, NM, NY, PA, UT, and WI have all linked the related illnesses to unlicensed black-market THC oil. The one outlier was in Oregon where the tragic death was associated with a THC cartridge from a licensed retailer. Third, none of our liquids contain Vitamin E acetate or any vitamins for that matter. Fourth, e-cigarettes and vaping nicotine-based e-liquids have been around a very long time and the industry has never seen anything even remotely close to what is happening currently. As noted in a New York Times article, “Public health officials have underscored one fundamental point: that the surge in illnesses is a new phenomenon and not merely a recognition of a syndrome that may have been developing for years.” We would encourage you to buy your nicotine and non-nicotine products from respectable companies and retailers and never ever buy anything off of the street.

Recently, Vapor Technology Association posted this blog about how this issue is being misrepresented in the media and their call to action for better dissemination of the facts.

Lastly, this blog is from a well-respected scientist, Dr. Farsalinos, about how the announcements and statements of some authorities, regulators, and scientists are without any scientific and epidemiological basis.

Should you have any additional questions or concerns please do not hesitate to reach out to us at We are here for you during these unnerving times.

Footer Note
This blog is in no way meant to construe health claims relating to vaping nicotine-based e-liquids. It is simply meant to relay the facts around the news stories that we have all seen in the news lately.

According to the 2021 National Youth Tobacco Survey NYTS that has been guiding the “Youth Vaping Epidemic” narrative, youth use is down 58% from 2019 to 2021. As Amanda Wheeler stated recently “Turns out the Youth Vaping Epidemic” was totally bunk, concocted by scaremongering activists and the FDA Social Media team.
