At Kanabo we are aware of the vaporizer related illnesses (EVALI) that occurred in 2019, and we wish to address this issue directly.
These incidents are believed to be the result of non-medically certified products being introduced into the market by unscrupulous and illicit suppliers, who are using untested devices and dangerous thickening agents like vitamin E acetate. A distinction should be made between these offenders and those providing fully certified dose-metering devices and cartridges designed to provide a safe, medically verified vaping experience.
Our users rely on our vaporizer device and formulations to provide much-needed relief from a variety of disorders and we are committed to their safety and efficacy. Kanabo adds no synthetic agents or emulsifiers to its cannabis extracts and terpene formulations, and we meet GMP standards in the manufacturing of products.
Kanabo’s medical grade VapePod® device is produced in a facility that has GMP and ISO134885 medical certification and has undergone rigorous testing for safety and performance reliability with similar compliance equal to CE Mark regulatory requirements. Our device has also been independently tested to guarantee that there are no heavy metal residuals whatsoever, ensuring the consistency of product composition pre and post heating in the device.
The health crisis has highlighted the dangers of allowing unregulated products to enter the vaporizer market, creating a more informed, vigilant public and medical community. We have witnessed a large increase in commercial use of vaporizers since the beginning of the 2000s. As of today, the estimate is 10-20 million daily e-cigarette consumers and with this we understand the general technology safety is well established. We have outlined below several common questions and concerns this crisis has raised. The answers were provided by Physicians and Scientists according the results of rigorous testing that Kanabo’s products undergo. Please feel free to contact us if you have further questions.
