Do vaporizer harm your health?
Recently we have been hearing more and more reports about the death of some vapers caused by illegally produced cartridges for concentrates or e-liquids. It is important to know that vaporizers are primarily herbal vaporizers. The principle of operation is different from that of an e-cigarette.
In the cartridges in question were impurities and diluents which led to such extreme problems for consumers. We generally advise against buying concentrates on the black market.
The official statement by Storz and Bickel:
"Recent reports of lung disease associated with vaping products are causing concern to many vaporizer users. While the exact cause of these diseases is not yet known, it appears that all significant incidents are associated with the use of illegally manufactured vaping cartridges containing vitamin E acetate. This means that the currently known cases are exclusively related to the evaporation of liquids and e-liquids.
We hereby assure our customers that no STORZ & BICKEL evaporators were involved in any of the incidents. The safety of our customers and patients is our top priority.
