Evolutions In Vaporizer Technology and Cannabis Oil Cartridges


Evolutions In Vaporizer Technology and Cannabis Oil Cartridges with Mike Hogan And Thompson Duke today on NCIA’s Cannabis Industry Voice only on The Cannabis Radio. Today we start by talking about the vaporizer market. The devices are one part, and the actual cannabis oil formulas go into the cartridges. There’s kind of a standard, mass-produced vape pen battery you can get for $10, and most cartridges fit them, but there are also proprietary designs that require specific pods or cartridges. So we ask, what other evolutions of the vaporizer designs and technologies have you seen?

On the other hand, there’s the oil, as we mentioned, and we saw a health crisis hit our industry in 2019 and published a white paper on the vaping crisis. There was an issue with the vitamin E acetate being used in the formula, Massachusetts even banned them entirely for a while. We discuss the reports that this was putting people in the hospital with lung infections. All that and much more on today’s episode, Evolutions In Vaporizer Technology and Cannabis Oil Cartridges only on The Cannabis Radio
