What Exactly is In My Medical Marijuana Vape Pen?

With the recent outbreak of vaping linked illnesses, it may be time for you to take a closer look at what’s inside your vape pen.

 As of September 26th, 2019, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has documented a total of 805 cases of vaping related lung injury reported from 46 states and 1 U.S. territory. While it’s too early to pinpoint what exactly is causing these mysterious respiratory illnesses, the leading theory points to some form of adulterant in vape products.

 In recent years, as the demand for THC vape cartridges has grown, so has the supply of black market and low-quality cartridges. A prevalent problem is the use of cutting agents and solvents with THC oils in order to give them the appearance of purity all while using less actual THC oil and cutting costs.

 As health officials continue to investigate, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has urged consumers to avoid inhaling vitamin E acetate, a commonly used thickening agent in THC vape pens. The CDC has issued similar warnings against buying vape cartridges off the street and against modifying THC products with additives and diluents. Even seemingly legal solvents and additives have been called into question. Three major thicken agent makers, which were marketed as cheaper and “safer” alternatives to traditional cutting agents, have been subpoenaed by the New York State Department of Health after all three products were found to be made up of almost pure vitamin E acetate.

In light of the CDC’s recent statements regarding vape oils, we here at Giving Tree wanted to take a moment to reassure our patients that we do not use vitamin E Acetate or any other harmful cutting agents in our vape oils. Our Giving Tree Vape Oil consists of full-spectrum, CO2 extracted cannabis oil and absolutely nothing else.






With zero additives, there are zero ties between our vape oils and the CDC warnings and investigations surrounding THC vape products. Giving Tree Vape Oils are free of additives and are compliant to the highest standards of testing on the market.
