Cannabis And CBD E-Cigarettes Vape Users Warned In California After Hospitalization Incident

Jane Summers




An alert was issued by the County of Kings Department of Public Health concerning the dangers of vaping cannabis or CBD oils.

According to the alert, there have been seven cases of acute respiratory distress syndrome requiring hospitalization and respiratory support. Those affected were previously healthy adults. A few of the first symptoms of respiratory distress include rapid breathing, low blood oxygen levels, feeling like one is not getting enough air, and extreme fatigue. As the alert explains, “If you are experiencing any of these symptoms seek immediate medical treatment.”

The main thread of common exposure among the individuals hospitalized was vaping CBD oil or cannabis oil. In addition, the report indicates,

“One pattern also observed during the investigation is that all of the cases to date have involved the purchasing of vape cartridges from “pop-up shops”. Pop-up shops are temporary shops that open for an undetermined amount of time, advertise by word of mouth, and will move locations frequently. These pop-up shops are not licensed retailers and do not follow any current regulations or safety practices, including selling only products that have been tested for contaminants. Under no circumstances should you vape cannabis or CBD oils obtained from a ‘pop-up shop.’”

Those who use CBD or cannabis oil should be cautious as to the products that they purchase. For example, users should purchase only from licensed retailers. In addition, users may want to look at other factors, such as the source of the CBD oil, the brand behind the product, user reviews, and whether there have been any reported issues with the brand. Those who take the time and ensure that the products are ones that they can trust may be better off and prevent the risks that can arise when using CBD or cannabidiol oil.
