If you’re a cannabis consumer, there’s a pretty good chance you’ve seen some news reports about vaping-related illness lately, and you may have some questions and concerns about what’s going on. For weeks, the media has been full of stories about people falling ill after using vape products, although the specific types and brands of cartridges are unclear. One possibility reportedly being considered is that the illnesses are the result of the presence of Vitamin E acetate in certain vape oils, which while safe for consumption in some forms may not be safe when inhaled as a vapor.
To be clear, there simply hasn’t been enough public information disclosed to know for certain what the cause of the illnesses is, although it has been confirmed that many of the cases occurred following the use of unlicensed, untested, and unregulated vape cartridges. In other words, products that are not subject to the state of California’s lab testing requirements, effectively being sold on the black market.
At Nice Guys, our foremost concern is making sure our customers get what they want, and what they need, out of cannabis. That includes a wide range of vape cartridges and pods, both high-THC and CBD-rich varieties, containing oils produced by a variety of reputable vendors who’ve operated within the bounds of the state of California’s regulations, including its mandatory lab testing regimen.
As of this writing, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) have not detailed what they believe the specific cause of the illnesses might be, although certain chemicals often found in unregulated cartridges are being examined. Suffice to say, we don’t want you to worry about using the products we carry, which is why we’ve spoken to our vendors to give you some reassurance about the quality, purity, and testing that goes into the cartridges we carry. Below are some of the responses released by the vape companies that stock our shelves.
