Vaping vs Danking
Our mainstream United States media along with some radical officials from public simply looking for some vendetta over whole vaping industry. They call vaping equals electronic cigarette with THC oil and it make new laws because of such people simply get back too much more danger of smoking then visiting vape shops who are out of business now. CDC gave simply wrong warnings to the public which make the whole hysteria possible. Sure, black market have this hemp cartridges which are dangerous. That’s the whole story right.
Vaping has suffered a lot on its image. For sure that THC cartridges played a very negative role in all that things like big tobacco companies, various anti-vaping lobby and so on. They simply got profited from the tragedy which rarely happens. Every lawyer across the country took part in that opportunity probably to ban certain flavors or overall vaping products anyway. While in the same time, probably every tobacco product just selling as usual. Around half of the million of Americans are dying from tobacco each year and such irony going on with vaping.
Much more research should be done to prevent such cases like that, people simply do not understand what is what they are dealing with. They associate vaping with smoking oil, people are not getting correct information. Everyone added vaping – media, politics and public figures doing so much damage much of it already can’t be undone or so. But no matter what we must work really hard about informing American people about real threats with smoking and vaping. That’s why we invent term “danking” with illegal THC cartridges.
Tragedy linked to THC cartridges from black market
in September 2019, news company NBC make the story of fungicides in that THC thing then transforming while burning to hydrogen cyanide. Those cartridges was already tested, I mean their liquid, and it was found toxic. For sure NBC made the story of what happens with some person when he is using something like oil cartridges. That fungicides converting to toxins, OK. Official figures failed to understand the difference between vaping and danking, danking equals in simple words – smoking oil. We say smoking here because you may understand that oil do not vaporize, correct? ;) It actually burns. And when you burn some substance like oil you get toxic products as a result, ask your mom/wife about her kitchen job;)
When tests were done something like 100% THC cartridges with oil from the black market produced that hydrogen cyanide while burning. Interesting fact that legal, dispensary oil do show any signs of that chemical. This is proving the point that it’s the product of the street's black market anyway.
Danking in details
Let’s make it very clear for first. IT’s smoking illegal THC oil. Some people call that process mistakenly “vaping”. It’s not correct and as we already said that THC oil do not vaporize at all anyway. You can only combust it and that’s really it. And you will get only smoke in the end. That people make Danking some form or way or “vaping”. Media can make anything out of nothing it’s like calling a whale – elephant. And I am not hyperbolizing.
That oil cartridges using combustion by ignition of electronic. It’s similar process and dripping that oil into electric part of the stove or using some ring like “nail”. Once you heat it to very big point, when it will start smoking you will get only smoke in return. So, no vapor in return.
Heating oil will not make vapor
Just a few years ago some health experts make big alarm for using olive oil for usual kitchen cooking and above certain temperatures. It’s because each type of oil has something like “smoke point”. Oils which is high in saturated fats can produce very bad toxins once such point reached. That oil smoking point is like something boiling point for e-juices which can be vapored, I mean, PG, VG and water here. Temperature high enough = smoke point reached and fine smoke is going on, but despising it looks – it’s not vapors at all.
That oil smoke for sure do have fats and toxins which were burned. Name “danking” associated with illness which give you lung symptoms like lipoid pneumonia, it’s a special type where fats and lipids cross the bronchial tree, basically directly into your lungs.
Illegal THC cartridges from black market
So, we already know that heating the oil to some point where it’s starts smoking doesn’t ‘t call vaping. Many people regularly use oil pens without basically any issues of such. There are for sure good quality oil pens with legal cannabis which is sold by some legal dispensary and is considered like good way of consuming medical cannabis. For such things you may use dry herb vaporizer. With case of oil it needs to be from very quality manufacturer anyway, licensed one, which have passed all oils procedures and such.
Very scary part of all that above that no more than quarter of the market of cannabis market is actually somewhat legal anyway. Which assuming bulk amounts of products are not being done properly anyway. And that bad black-market THC things are filling the streets. Somebody got arrested for having seven thousand such cartridges with each of them having very good professional look anyway and packaging too.
How do that things made for danking?
For sure we can’t give you full recipe of black dealers of THC oil cartridges;) By the way, there are tons of that dangerous information everywhere anyway. No average person should make such cartridges without any chemical degree or something like that, proper lab equipment and so on like filters and such. Illegal THC oil made in backyards and kitchens without any proper filtration for example. Not to mention all other things like additives and filler agents anyway.
To make it short it’s done with loading PVC pipe with that good old cannabis. Then running lighter fluid, butane through that. Stove top gets evaporated with butane and what we left with goes as basis for THC oil. Then black dealers add some additive and filthy oil and put it all in a cheap under $1 cartridge which they bought from China. Then they compile it all in a bow so everyone who is their customer will think it’s a commercially safe product and so on.
How to differ legit cartridge from black market THC oil one from such many?
First of all, it’s really not that easy to differ professionally packaged black market product from good and legit one with license and corresponding regulations. Black market operators for sure do know how to make it all fine and dandy, that’s right. All that fake certifications, logos and shrink wrapped that fakes looks really safe for average client. But they are not and fungicides contained in them are not filtered out and for sure will be converting to toxins when burning will start. As well as additives of vitamin e.
There is no safe way to tell is it good or bad cartridge with THC oil you are buying now so best bet would be probably to buy it all licensed dispensaries of cannabis. And even then, very carefully scrutinize whole package for that matter;)
Never buy from some street underground vendors anyway. All legit, professionally made oil things should prominently display certain information like:
- Packaging date
- Manufacturing date
- Lot number
- Batch number
Also, you should look for QR code and be ready to contact the manufacturer immediately to verify their legitimacy anyway. All these seems very time consuming, but do believe all that cautious measures are really important to do to prevent all bad things. Once you identify that all is fine you will be set here for future purchases probably.
Not every dispensary is licensed. If they do, they need by the law to display their license number for that matter anyway. I am more than sure you need to check it in google and/or offline to make sure it’s legit and real.
Finally, let’s define vaping!
It’s vaporizing e-liquid process using vaporizer/electronic cigarette. That e-juice consists of nicotine, flavors, PG and VG. When you vaping, there is no burning going on really. There are tons of information in google comparing that 2 processes. Good electronic cigarette from legit company vaporizes e-juice as the end product of process. So, result for sure is not smoke! Oil burns, liquid vaporize. Vaping is not danking and visa versa.
Vaping is not safe 100%. Nobody tells that. If you do not smoke, do not start vape! That’s for sure, main goal of vaping was to reduce harm of smoking cigarettes and make somewhat safe temporary switch to that;) It’s simply alternative for existing smokers.
And for sure danking and vaping again are totally different things at all. Media and officials probably using people’s lack of knowledge in all that and want to make stories to sell themselves further. If you have ability – share that article!
