SD Lab Finds Dangerous Vape Cartridges

new results from a local marijuana

testing lab paint an alarming picture of

what people who vapor putting into their

bodies team 10 investigative reporter

Jennifer Kastner discovered that nearly

80 percent of the cannabis vape

cartridges that were tested were deemed

unfit for human consumption what you see

is all made right here whether you want

to eat your marijuana as chocolate or

vape it as oil Platinum vape and San

Diego's got you covered this is actual

cartridges being filled tucked away in a

quiet business park the manufacturing

company produces high potency pesticide

free cannabis products that go through

rigorous testing co founder George

Sadler is on a mission to spread

awareness about the serious potential

health risks of using products from

unlicensed vape makers and sellers what

can you say it's it's horrible it's

doing so much harm to people versus

walking into a licensed or so platinum

vape teamed up with nearby licensed

cannabis dispensary mankind to buy back

cartridges that ranged from homemade

concentrates to counterfeits of popular

legal brands in exchange customers got

discounted platinum vape cartridges that

are tested and regulated we wanted to

encourage them to replace something that

could make them sick with something that

was safe so if you see inside this

window you can see the plasma those

cartridges were then sent to local

marijuana testing lab infinite Cal for

potency pesticides in heavy metal

testing the results were alarming the

lab found that almost 80% of the

cartridges were deemed unfit for human

consumption more than 60% failed for

pesticides that's what all of these are

and this one over here is also another

pesticide almost 40% field for lead so

toxic levels have left yeah one of the

big pens had almost a hundred times the

legal limit and half of all the products

had less than 50% THC in them some of

the cartridges were even cut with

excessive levels of vitamin E acetate

the additive that may be linked to

numerous vapor elated deaths and

illnesses 20% of them

a significant amount it's sad for me you

know public safety is a really important

part of what we do and what we believe

in mankind says the only way to ensure

that customers are getting safe products

is if they buy them from licensed

dispensaries like mankind that purchased

products from distributors like platinum

vape that are regulated by the

California Bureau of cannabis control I

think the exposure needs to be there for

people to really understand what's

happening and you can check out all of

the marijuana dispensaries licensing

statutes on the state's website we have

a link to that on ten find it
