This article highlights the need for regulation of the cannabis industry.
A federally unregulated cannabis industry and variable state-to-state regulations have enabled low-quality products to enter the marketplace, which can lead to adverse events and consumer confusion, as thorough and transparent labelling of chemicals present in cannabis vaping products is not widespread industry practice. Unified and enforced state regulations or federal regulations supported by quality testing and robust research are needed for consumer confidence and safety in cannabis vaping products. In the United States, hemp and marijuana are both Cannabis sativa, differentiated only by whether the plant on dry weight basis is above or below 0.3% Δ9-tetrahydrocannabinol (Δ9-THC). Pod-based vaping products were devised for discreet vaping and originated in the cannabis industry. Cannabis vaping is correlated with younger age, higher education, and higher income.
