Bootleg Marijuana Vapes Contain Hydrogen Cyanide

A recent study has found that some illicit THC vape cartridges contain large amounts of hydrogen cyanide and formaldehyde, toxic chemicals that have a negative effect on the lungs. In addition, some of the cartridges contain high levels of pesticides, including triclosan, a fungicide that is capable of converting to hydrogen cyanide when burned.

NBC News conducted a study in California and found that nine out of 10 unregulated vape cartridges contained traces of the dangerous chemical. Some of the cartridges were found to contain myclobutanil, a fungicide that turns to hydrogen cyanide when exposed to heat. Some of the THC-containing cartridges also contained Vitamin E acetate, a compound linked to lung and bronchial illnesses.

One of the most concerning findings from the study is that a fungicide in the cartridges can turn into hydrogen cyanide when burnt. A number of health officials blame the use of vape pens for the deaths of 12 people. But the new finding is a major setback for the cannabis industry. This ailment is caused by an overdose of THC in the environment.

Despite the soaring demand for marijuana, the problem is widespread and far from resolved. A 12-block area of downtown Los Angeles is dotted with vape shops and unregulated THC cartridges. The problem is that anyone with access to solvent and THC can create bootleg marijuana vapes. Moreover, the study has uncovered an increased risk of lung ailments, particularly among adolescents.

While many cannabis products tested were unregulated, the NBC News facility conducted tests to determine if the cartridges contained harmful materials. The unregulated cartridges tested contained pesticides and fungicides, which turn into hydrogen cyanide when burned. Therefore, consumers should avoid these products if they want to stay healthy. However, the company’s testing results were published in the media.

The THC oils in illicit products were found to contain seven pesticides, significant levels of vitamin E, and trace amounts of formaldehyde. In addition to these harmful substances, these illegal products also contain high levels of pesticides, including triclosan, and acetone. Several of the illegal cartridges were contaminated with these substances, and the CDC has acknowledged that the issue is not primarily related to Vitamin E.

Researchers from the CannaSafe lab have concluded that most illegal marijuana vapes contain large amounts of hydrogen cyanide. The lab used THC oils that were contaminated with pesticides, such as myclobutanil, which transforms into hydrogen cyanide when burned. These cartridges also contained traces of other chemicals, including formaldehyde, and carbon monoxide.

Several illicit products contain various chemicals and other substances. The CannaSafe lab, which tested over 100 illicit cartridges, found that the THC oils in Dank Vapes are contaminated with lead. Furthermore, the illegal products contain high amounts of pesticides. Aside from cyanide, the CDC said that these products contain toxic levels of hydrogen cyanide.

These illicit products were made using THC oils, but the lab also detected other harmful chemicals. The THC oil cartridges that contained hydrogen cyanide were found to contain several pesticides, including myclobutanil. They contained large amounts of other pesticides, and were also tainted with formaldehyde, a known carcinogen.

In addition to the high levels of tainted THC, the tests also revealed that the liquids containing the substance were made with dirty hands. Some THC cartridges contained residues from heavy metals, and even pesticides. While the traces of hydrogen cyanide were detected in the THC oil, the rest of the products were produced using the illicit market.

In addition to tainted hydrogen cyanide, some other ingredients found in the THC mixtures included vitamin E, which can be harmful when inhaled. Additionally, a certain chemical that is used to cut cannabis into a liquid called myclobutanil is linked to the outbreak of lung disease. The findings are alarming and suggest that the FDA needs to take steps to ensure the safety of vapes.
