HEALTH CANADA WARNS AGAINST MODIFYING VAPE PENS AS ILLNESS SPREADS IN U.S. CANNABIS CANADACANNABIS LEGALIZATIONCBD NEWSFEATUREDHEALTHHEALTHMARIJUANA LEGALIZATIONMARIJUANA NEWS

People who vape should get medical attention right away if they’re worried their electronic cigarettes/vape pens are harming them, Health Canada said Thursday.

The federal department said there is no sign in Canada of an affliction reported in as many as 25 American states that seems to be linked to vaping, but it is monitoring the situation.

People have reported respiratory and gastric problems, one has died. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control isn’t sure why?. A second death is being investigated.

There’s a possible connection to using e-cigarettes or vape pens to consume cannabis-derived products.Neither the CDC nor Health Canada is certain that’s the cause.

Health Canada warned against buying of Vaping Pens/E-Cigarettes from illegal market:

“Canadians are reminded that the purchase of vaping products outside the legal market may create additional risk. As these products are unregulated and potentially unsafe, and thereby pose a risk to health and safety,” Health Canada said in a statement.

Symptoms include:

  • Coughing
  • Shortness of Breath and Chest Pain
  • Nausea, Vomiting and Diarrhea
  • And signs of infection, such as fevers and high white-blood-cell counts, without any apparent source.

All the patients involved have been users of e-cigarettes/vaping pens. But, the CDC says it’s not clear how they might be involved. Sometimes, symptoms have set in days or even weeks later.
