The mysterious string of illnesses related to vaping that occurred over the summer left Americans across the country confused, concerned, and unsure of the safety of electronic smoking devices. While the ultimate culprit behind the so-called ‘popcorn lung’ or ‘vaping disease’ was identified, many people still believe all vape pens are a safety hazard and should be banned. For people who used medical marijuana in Miami in the form of a pen, this could severely impact their ability to get vital medical treatment. To help put this issue to rest once and for all, MMJ Care MD is answering the question.
The answer to that is yes, vapor devices used for medical marijuana and CBD products are safe… as long as they come from a reputable source and are undoctored. An investigation into the illnesses determined the devices involved had either been purchased off the streets or manipulated in such a way that the heat source burned much hotter than intended. The inhalation of this super-heated air and vapors resulted in burns to the lungs of the victims. Use of doctored street oils and tinctures also contributed to the problem, as they were found to contain chemicals that are dangerous for human consumption.
In Florida, medical marijuana dispensaries are required to register with the state and hold the appropriate licensing for distribution. This measure is made in effort to ensure the safety of medical marijuana in Miami and across South Florida. A medical marijuana card in Miami is required in order to purchase marijuana products from such dispensaries as well. Because medical cannabis is prescribed, we are able to track which dispensaries fulfill them and where certain marijuana pen products are purchased. This record, while protected under HIPAA laws, can be used to help pen point the origin of any problematic batches.
Because medical marijuana dispensaries are registered and regulated by the state, you can rest comfortably knowing your medical marijuana or CBD products are unlikely to cause serious health complications like the so-called ‘popcorn lung.’ When used as recommended, medical marijuana in Miami can alleviate chronic pain symptoms, nausea and vomiting, and help manage symptoms of certain mental health disorders. These benefits have been determined to exceed the health risks associated with marijuana use. For those who do not want to experience the psychoactive effects of marijuana use, CBD-based products can provide the desired effects without the ‘high.’
