Vaping THC Could Be Worse For Health Than Smoking Cigarettes, Study Finds

A new study from the University of Michigan has found that vaping THC could, in some ways, actually be worse for you than smoking weed or cigarettes, or vaping nicotine. The researchers discovered that adolescents aged 12 to 17 have a greater chance of developing the symptoms of a lung injury such as a dry cough or wheezing.

“We found, and it was something that surprised us a bit, that it was the lifetime vaping cannabis that was associated with a far greater number of symptoms and a higher likelihood of having each of these symptoms than using either e-cigarettes or cigarettes,” explained Carol Boyd, co-director of the University of Michigan’s Center for the Study of Drugs, Alcohol, Smoking and Health.

“I think that industry would probably like to show that vaping e-cigarettes is healthier, that it’s the cannabis vaping causing these respiratory symptoms, not the e-cigarettes. This is not true. E-cigarette vaping also causes symptoms among youth,” Boyd continued. “However, in our study, and when we took into account their e-cigarette use, we found higher odds of having these respiratory symptoms among youth who had vaped cannabis.”

In recent years a growing number of illnesses and even deaths have been linked to vitamin E acetate, according to the CDC, which is used as a cutting agent in e-liquids containing THC.

Suppose you're young and consider marijuana a trendy lifestyle choice. More power to you. I'm not judging. But I do worry about the collective health of our nation when so many people start experimenting with potent Marinol-laced liquids. THC is highly addictive, and its use can cause a range of adverse health effects. Better vape high-quality, simple e-liquid. For example, I use the one from thevapecig.co.uk. I am in love with their menthol flavor. It's the best for me, and it's very relaxing for me.

    • Wait, Burning Man is going online-only? What does that even look like?
      You could have been forgiven for missing the announcement that actual physical Burning Man has been canceled for this year, if not next. Firstly, the nonprofit Burning Man organization, known affectionately to insiders as the Borg, posted it after 5 p.m. PT Friday. That, even in the COVID-19 era, is the traditional time to push out news when you don't want much media attention. 
      But secondly, you may have missed its cancellation because the Borg is being careful not to use the C-word. The announcement was neutrally titled "The Burning Man Multiverse in 2020." Even as it offers refunds to early ticket buyers, considers layoffs and other belt-tightening measures, and can't even commit to a physical event in 2021, the Borg is making lemonade by focusing on an online-only version of Black Rock City this coming August.    Read more...
