What's the truth about the vaping crisis?
October 2, 2019
Hosted by Dr. Joseph “Joe” Rosado
The number of vaping-related lung illnesses has risen to 530 probable cases and ten deaths, according to an update last week by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. While media coverage has largely painted this as an ‘e-cigarette’ issue, the current evidence suggests that THC oil – not commercially-available nicotine e-liquid – is the likely culprit. Most commercially available e-liquids contain flavorings, polyethylene glycol (PEG), propylene glycol (PG), vegetable glycerine (VG) and vitamin E acetate, which have been linked to multiple lung diseases. In this episode we will be discussing the "truth" about the vaping crisis.

My core message is that Cannabis is medicine and this show is based on my own medical experience and 10-plus years of medical cannabis research, which led me to author my book “Hope and Healing: The Case for Cannabis” and publish three articles in 2019 in peer reviewed medical journals. I offer ground breaking information, insights, guidance, advice, education, inspiration and motivation regarding the topics covered regarding medical cannabis.
