Oregon bans on both flavored nicotine and cannabis vaping products now on hold

Gov. Kate Brown’s six-month ban on both flavored nicotine and cannabis vape products is on hold with new rulings Thursday by the Oregon Court of Appeals.

“We’re very happy,” said Andrew DeWeese, the attorney representing Herban Industries, which sued over the cannabis vape oil portion of the ban. “It’s a win for the cannabis industry and it is, frankly, a win for the Oregon consumer.”

The court a month ago temporarily halted the ban on only flavored nicotine vaping products. It now has extended that stay and granted a stay covering the ban on flavored cannabis vaping products as well.

The decisions are a major blow to Brown’s efforts to address the vaping-related lung illness epidemic.

Exploring high THCV strains and how they are valuable to cannabis users

Thus far, 113 different cannabinoids have been isolated from the cannabis plant, and all we ever hear or talk about are THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) and CBD (cannabidiol).

Truth be told, they are the most prevalent compounds in cannabis, but we should be aware of the fact that there are other equally intriguing (though lesser-known) cannabinoids in this mysterious plant.

So, we decided to learn more about tetrahydrocannabivarin (THCV), a rare compound that can only be found in trace amounts of marijuana. And not just any kind of marijuana.

What can other Countries learn from the Vape Crisis in the US

Vape pen cartridges are very popular in the United States, however, they are somewhat of a novelty in other countries. That is likely to change in the future as vape pen cartridge technology spreads to other markets around the globe.

For those that are unaware of what a vape pen cartridge is, it’s a cartridge filled with a cannabis concentrate oil

The cartridge attaches to a battery that heats up an element or wick inside of the cartridge, and that creates a cannabis vapor that the consumer inhales.

For many consumers, a vape pen cartridge is preferred over smoking cannabis since it’s so convenient, discrete, and yields significantly less odor.
