Consumer Warning: Dextromethorphan, found in CBD vape pens

Vaping is often touted as being less harmful. But this is not always the case in the land of the unregulated cannabis industry, where a recent study showed cannabidiol (CBD) e-liquid products have some undetermined occurrence of adulterations with drugs with bad outcomes, including dextromethorphan, which is in the morphinan class of medications with sedative, dissociative, and stimulant properties at low doses.


Dextromethorphan can cause pychosis to death


Dextromethorphan is a regulated drug available in many over-the-counter cough medications.  Dextromethorphan is also the same chemical that has been known for abuse by teens and adults who are seeking euphoria and an LSD-like comparable state.  In higher levels (5-10 times the recommended levels), Dextromethorphan can cause psychosis, dependence, and physical withdrawal symptoms. At very high levels, Dextromethorphan can be fatal.


Know what you're consuming


That's why it’s very important to know that your source of CBD vapes are made from a clean cannabis oil, free of harmful contaminants and other adulterations. In California and other states that have laws in place with regards to mandatory lab testing and quality control, you can count on a purer product.


Buy from permitted dispensaries


Consumers are much better off buying from locally permitted cannabis dispensaries or delivery services than from the unregulated market. Just ask your friendly budtender or delivery driver to show you the verifiable lab testing on every product.
