What are Vaping products?
Vaping products are also referred to as e-cigarettes, however, unlike normal cigarettes, vaporizers use batteries and small metal coils to heat the liquid, but not all devices vaporize the same way. Most contain a device that heats the liquid solution to create an aerosol (vapor or cloud) that the patient smokes. Inside a chamber, the liquid, typically referred to as e-juice, may contain different substances. Hence, they are often referred to as vapes, vape pens, and vaporizers.
Vaping devices come in attractive designs, ranging from traditional cigarettes to innovative designs such as USB sticks, credit cards, and cell phones. The main components of vaping devices include a:
- Chamber (cartridge or tank, or reservoir) that holds the e-juice
- E-liquid (vaping liquid or “e-juice”) usually contains nicotine and other chemicals
- The heating element (atomizer or cartomizer), heats the e-juice to make vapor
- A battery of varying voltage powers the atomizer.
A physician should determine the type and amount of Marijuana for a particular medical condition. The composition of the Marijuana in the vape can vary based on the physician’s recommendations. It could be high in THC, CBD, or both, based on the severity of symptoms and underlying health condition
Is there vitamin E Acetate in Marijuana Vaping Products?
Vitamin E acetate, also known as Alpha Tocopherol acetate, is a synthetic form of vitamin E. It can be present in Vaping products and added as an additive to increase the benefits of the Marijuana product. Vitamin E is an effective antioxidant and studies have shown its effectiveness in treating many conditions from serious conditions like Alzheimer’s to certain blood disorders. It is also beneficial in decreasing menstrual cramp pain.
Although it is not harmful and dangerous to take Vitamin E acetate as a supplement, or in an ointment, research suggests that it can be harmful when it is inhaled in large quantities. Its molecular structure could make it hazardous when inhaled. Its oil-like properties could be associated with respiratory symptoms such as cough, shortness of breath, and chest pain. However, more research and clinical trials are underway to understand the correlation between vitamin E acetate and respiratory issues.
Vitamin E in Daily Life Food
Vitamin E is present in many wholesome foods we eat daily, dietary supplements, and cosmetic products like skin creams and serums. However, it can be harmful when it is inhaled as it can stick to the lining of the lung leading to respiratory issues in some patients. When the inhaled vapor cools down in the lungs, it returns to its original state, forming a coating on the inside of the lungs.
Vitamin E acetate has been found in THC vapes as a thickening and diluting agent to make the oil in cartridges go further. Regulating Vitamin E acetate’s inclusion in THC-based vape products has proven to be challenging because each state has its own regulation. In each state that allows the use of Cannabis as a medicinal agent, there are certain rules and guidelines that need to be completed before any patient can start taking Marijuana. These regulations are set to reduce the indiscriminate use of Cannabis. They should be followed to reduce the risk of Marijuana’s adverse effects. That may appear when it is not taken under the guidance of an expert. Our specialists ensure you get the correct dosage suitable for your medical condition, with no adverse effects from the vaping product.
What does a Marijuana vape contain?
Marijuana vaping products contain either THC or CBD, which can be full spectrum, including cannabinoids and terpenes. They can be added to vapes in the form of dried Cannabis flowers, oils, or wax.
Let us look very briefly at the 3 different Marijuana forms used in vapes.
These vapes contain dried cannabis flower that is heated to just the right temperature so that it does not burn, to produce vapors. Many vaporizers have temperature settings that you can change to control the amount of flavor and vapor you are inhaling.
- Oil Pens
These contain oils extracted from the plant instead of dry herbs. When extracting the oil from the plant, the cannabis oil is mixed with other carrier oils, such as hemp oil. Hence, vaporized oil is less potent than wax but more potent than herb.
Oil pens are a popular choice among young first-time users, as they are clean and easy to use. Oil pens come in different flavors and may have different cannabis strains. The recommended strain needs to be taken under the guidance of an expert.
- Wax Pens
These contain a high concentration of Cannabis and are very potent. They are used in the natural form, without any additives. Wax is added to the atomizer where it is heated and vaporized.
