When using vaporizer products obtained from BCI, including vape cartridges and disposable pens, you are breathing in vapor, not burned products. However, vaporizer products are relatively new in the marketplace and we encourage you to use judgment and moderation. We do not recommend using vaporizer products excessively, and in fact a few very gentle breaths, a few times a day, is our maximum recommended usage level.
The main ingredient in the vaporizer products sold by BCI is extracted THC. The Clear Drop product line ingredients are limited to terpene enhanced cannabis extract, no vegetable glycerin is used in this brand. The other brands sold by BCI may contain vegetable glycerin, which is vaporized by millions of people daily. It has been considered “Generally Recognized as Safe” category 1, by the FDA since 1975. Whole plant extracts have been utilized for thousands of years as aromatherapy constituents, and have been very well studied. The inhalation of heated essential oils has been done for centuries, such as by adding them to boiling water over a fire. However, they have not been heated and breathed directly into the lungs through an electronic device until approximately 10 years ago, and thus there is no long-term experience with vapors of this nature. For instance, when you heat vegetable glycerin it may produce acrolein. People with known upper respiratory illnesses or weaknesses, such as asthma or COPD, should not use BCI’S vapor products.
BCI’S vapor products should be used as indicated by their manufacturer. You should not deviate from the manufacturer’s instructions as this may increase the risk of harm. BCI cannot be held liable for injuries sustained by use of misuse.
There is a small lithium battery inside many vapor products sold by BCI. As is the case with all lithium batteries, this can lead to overheating or an electrical short, which could lead to an electrical sensation, a shock, a burn or an explosion.
