Regarding the controversy and panic caused by hundreds of pulmonary cases caused by using THC vapes in the United States, Tan Xin, chairman of HMI Group expressed his views on this issue.
Many people are discussing the cause of those deaths, some think it’s caused by e-cigarettes, some think THC is the culprit, and some denoted that it’s related to the purchase counterfeit on the black market.
Tan Xin said, “Canadian and American entertainment hemp legitimacy is based on no death case for using hemp. More precisely, European and American laws take 25 years as a safety period, smoking hemp has caused no death recorded, so the saying THC as the main component of cannabis caused death is illogical. Traditional cannabis smoking causes no trouble. However, when it comes to electronic cigarette, the problem shows up, the possible reason may be that the THC extracted and processed contains pesticide residues, solvent residues, and quality problems! Or the excipients used in THC oil blended by manufacturers without a pharmaceutical foundation takes effect on the lungs. It’s too early to conclude. What I want to say is the poisonous milk incident in China, there is no problem in drinking milk, but there is a problem in adding melamine into milk by the manufacturer. This time, the problem of poisonous electronic cigarette is the problem of some individual manufacturer. There is no problem in electronic cigarette, but we need to pay attention to the healthy development of this industry. China’s smoke companies should strengthen safety awareness. ”
Tan Xin is the chairman of HMI Group. HMI Group owns Industrial Cannabis Variety Registration Certificate, Industrial Cannabis Planting License and Industrial Cannabis Leaf and Flower Processing License. It is the only legitimate investment group in China based on the layout of the whole industrial chain of industrial cannabis and oriented towards biopharmaceuticals.
Tan Xin is a senior practitioner in cannabis industry, and his viewpoint has reference value.
According to CNN, the eighth related death occurred in the United States. Missouri health officials announced Thursday that a 40-year-old man died in connection with severe lung injury caused by the use of vaporizers.
The CDC and the state health departments report that products containing tetrahydrocannabinol are widely used in the sick, and the psychoactive substance in cannabis is tetrahydrocannabinol. But health officials stressed Thursday that not all sick people have used tetrahydrocannabinol, and many people use a variety of substances.
However, U.S. health officials say they have yet to find a clear link between the cause or case.
Some studies have shown that THC and other products purchased on the black market may be responsible for the above reasons, and pointed out that vitamin E suspected to lead to the occurrence of lung disease. Mainstream media in the United States said that electronic cigarettes were also to blame, triggering a ban on flavored electronic cigarettes in San Francisco, Michigan and New York. The Trump Administration also said that in order to protect teenagers, it would work with the FDA to develop measures to ban the sale of flavored electronic cigarettes in the United States.
Some people in the electronic cigarette industry believe that this is the result of illegal THC. JUUL headquarters recently issued a short statement saying that JUUL products do not contain tetrahydrocannabinol, any compounds derived from cannabis or vitamin E compounds similar to cannabis-related products.
The release date of JUUL’s statement is worth pondering, and it specifically emphasizes that JUUL products have nothing to do with tetrahydrocannabinol, any compounds derived from cannabis, or vitamin E compounds in cannabis-like products, which are suspected to point to the THC.
