VESL looks to clear the air about professionally derived CBD vaping products
News that the Center for Disease Control named vitamin E acetate as a chief suspect in vaping illness last week was hardly earth-shattering to most professional vaping firms. This includes the VESL owners in Arvada, which produce CBD vaping pens and other CBD products used for health benefits.
“We don’t try to hide anything about our products; we stood behind them even among all this misinformation,” said VESL partner Bobby Scott. He believes the entire above-board vaping industry lost about 20-25 percent of revenue following the disclosure of vaping illnesses in July. At that time, VESL owners, and many others in the industry, were pointing their fingers at vitamin E acetate. It is a common ingredient in black-market THC and sometimes, CBD vaping products. Scott added that many in the industry will welcome state or federal regulation.
According to Scott, illegal THC vaping products usually only reduce marijuana to crude oil. As a result, this process requires a solvent such as a vitamin E acetate to improve the viscosity of the cartridge. In contrast, VESL uses only 99 percent pure CBD oil, or isolate, in all of its products.
VESL produces a variety of CBD consumables that provides a variety of potential health benefits. These include CBD vaping products, muscle gels, gummies, and skincare products. The said cannabis products are made without nicotine or the psychoactive THC molecule.
Scott said that vaping is simply the fastest way to bring those positive effects to bear. He added that about 75 percent of his customers use vaped doses. “Your lungs process that dose into your blood immediately, so smaller doses are required,” Scott said. “One puff off a vape pen, less than a milligram of CBD, and you can feel that right away.”
VESL only produces products based on CBD — an acronym for cannabidiol. It is one of 113 cannabinoids found in hemp plants. Many consumers are increasingly finding aid through CBD in reducing pain, anxiety, depression, and many other health benefits.
Beginning with organic hemp containing less than 0.3 % THC, the company employs the preferred CO2 extraction method to create its hemp oil. This process is followed by an ISO-certified lab to isolate a 99-percent pure CBD oil.
Vitamin E acetate
In Colorado, regulators are looking at eliminating vitamin E acetate. A solvent compound commonly used for lower-grade THC vaping. Scott said VESL would welcome the proposed state regulations because he believes the company’s stringent processes would be readily approved.
“I think most of us agree that vitamin E acetate will be eliminated, and regulations on putting ingredients on the packaging are something we already do,” Scott said. “I’m not sure where the industry wants to go, but I hope the regulators research it before enacting regulations.”
