    Vape oils are all over the Internet. No matter who sells it, do not vape oils. Our lungs cannot handle oils. Oils are for oral use not vape use.

    Sorry double post! The problem is the term "oil". Never vape actual oil like hemp oil. PG/VG only for vaping.

    CBD isolates are easy to buy online, and can be mixed just like making your normal vape juice. It's much safer to mix your own and more cost effective as well.

    OK big problem here.

    This 'oil' you speak of.... has been used for in the United States since the 1800s.

    This latest rash of illness is credited to ONE source using vitamin E oil in their cartridges.
    The other millions of cannabis 'oil' vapers have been just fine.
    So, to be clear, lets discuss what you mean by 'oil'.

    Cannaibs concentrate comes out oily. There are no ingredients aside from cannabis. The solvent has been removed completely, in legal cartridges or oil, because it has been tested and proven to be so.

    There is nothing to be feared from legally acquired and TESTED cannabis concentrate (aside from it perhaps being too potent for you). Here in Calfornia, all concentrates MUST be tested for pollutants or additives.

    Now, if anything else besides terpenes are ADDED to your oil, then u 'may' have problems. To be clear, only six people have died from these issues, with literally tens of millions of these cartridges sold.

    Why put vitamin E in cannabis concentrate ?
    Because vapers have learned that thicker oil means higher quality. So these jerks put vitamin E into their concentrate to thicken it in the see-thru cartridge. Not good.

    This has been tied to ONE individual producer.

    Do not give into fear-mongering, just as you wouldn't give into it with all the lies about nicotine vaping that exist. Surely, you've seen what the media has done to e-cigs. So just remember that when you see these stories about cannabis 'oil'.

    Post above by DJ is good and informative. Google thc vape cartridge bust it is alarming on the size of these illegal operations and this is where the problems we see stem from .
    Wisconsin where several deaths occurred recently had a large illegal thc cartridge bust along with Arizona and Indiana and probably others.
    The ones bought legally from licensed facilities have not had problems and in Illinois it will be
    legal Jan 1st with the medical facilities already licensed to start selling the product and never ever thought i would live to see that happen.
    I guess sooner than later it will be legal in more states than it is not.

    Sadly if there is money to be made people will find a way to do it illegally and that in itself is what we are
    seeing in humble opinion.

    Just watch and see how many people will sell black market ('illegal') flavored vape liquid in the USA as soon as the ban is set.
    By banning flavors, they are sending us towards home-made bathtub juice, that WILL make people sick.
    Then they'll claim another health crisis and ban vaping altogether.
    Just watch.
    It's almost as if this is scripted (perhaps it is).

    Isolate has no oil, full spectrum has some oil in it. The main point is do not vape actual oil, we ecig users have known this for years, don't use oil based flavors in ejuice. Don't use essential oils in ejuice. Now we need this- Don't vape CBD suspended in actual hemp oil or THC thickened by Vit E. any oil is not good for the lungs.

    Were the brothers in WI cutting with Vit E? I read a couple articles and neither mentioned it, I mean the quantity they had was impressive regardless.

    Has not been mentioned what they were using only the quantity of what was found. When things are prohibited underground folks profit it has been proven throughout history prohibition is an example.
    I read a while back the tourist that were dying after drinks overseas it was said briefly they think it was
    tainted but then never heard anything else about it?
