Teens have been admitted to hospitals with all kinds of respiratory distress. What are they doing wrong, and should we be concerned?
No one knows, at least publicly, as yet. The only product that has been identified in the press have been the Juul. But, even then, there has not been a specific identification for a specific case. All new and CDC seems to talk of e-cig, vaping, dabbing, nicotine vaping and the like. (Often using dabbing as a synonym for vaping.)Teens have been admitted to hospitals with all kinds of respiratory distress. What are they doing wrong, and should we be concerned?
^^^^^^ This!I’m starting to wish we had another word other than “vaping” to differentiate between cannabis and nicotine juice.
There are tons of articles out there that opine some of the vapes had THC in them. No article is giving good information about potential vectors other than "vaping" as yet. Even in the article you mention, they DID talk of cannabis:
I used to enjoy the flavor and inhaling part, regardless of the drug s that it provided. I could have easilly seen myself vaping a non-nicotene juice. Lots of my friends liked 0-nicotene juices. I don't see the issue?!?@vapirtoo Please don’t think I’m being catty or judgmental, but this is the first I’ve heard of this. I thought this sort of vaping was to replace smoking cigarettes. I had no idea folks were buying batteries and the products just for the sake of vaping oils. So all that to say: Why does your son vape fruit flavoured non-nicotine oils? What does one get out of the experience? Is it really down to an oral fixation, like the girl @invertedisdead met?
I honestly can’t see a reason for doing it without some sort of positive reinforcement: some people smoke for the nicotine & some choose to vape for nicotine. I know some people switch to vaping as a path to smoking cessation and some switch with no intention of quitting nicotine, vaping it for the “harm reduction” that led us to FC.
So I s this becoming a big thing in the states or everywhere? I guess it could very well be huge in the UK too and I just haven’t paid attention. I do see the fruit flavoured vials at the shop but I always assumed those contained nicotine as well. Dammit! Apparently, I’m just not very cool anymore... hipness has surely passed me by. Fortunately I’ve got inverted and the rest of y’all to help me stay current and relevant. Thank you btw!
I guess he should have fun. Does one expect to live forever?Hey pxl
My son seems to like the taste and the process, ritual. He never liked weed, never smoked cigarettes, but these oils are his hobby. I cannot figure it out either.
a possible culprit is contaminants added to cartridges, esp. in unregulated 'pop-up' stores, online sales:
