Dank Vapes and other non-licensed cannabis cartridges.

We hear a lot about Dank Vapes, and with the recent news of individuals being hospitalized due to black market THC vape cartridges, we felt this was a topic that we should address.

To clear up one of the most common misconceptions we hear: Dank Vapes is not a cannabis processing entity. Dank Vapes has no licensed operations in the United States for cannabis processing. Rather, Dank Vapes is simply a company that seemingly manufactures packaging.

What this essentially means is that anytime you see a Dank Vapes cart, it means that this has been manufactured by an unknown entity with unknown ingredients, unless you happen to know the processor filling the carts.

The main concern associated with cannabis (dab) carts at this time are the additives that can be included in the pens have possible adverse effects when heated and vaporized. Some of the more common ingredients used to “cut” the carts, or make them look lighter in color to portray higher-quality, include propylene glycol, vegetable glycerin, or MCT oil.

High-quality cannabis distillate will generally have this transparent golden color with a thick consistency.

Now that patients are looking for a thick consistency in their carts, cart makers have responded by adding new cutting agents designed to mask the dilution. Many think that this has caused this new spike in hospitalizations, however, there is no definitive way to be sure.

These hospitalizations in other states have shown the importance of ensuring that your cannabis has been lab-tested and approved as safe for medical use. Whether it’s a cart from another state-approved program, or from right here in Ohio’s medical marijuana program, you can feel confident that you will not need to worry about your medicine negatively impacting your health.

The suspect Dank vapes are a familiar product in the underground cannabis economy. It’s not a legal, tested brand. It’s not even a product brand at all. It’s merely a name on a box or a cartridge, packaging that’s easily obtained online and used by illicity producers to lure customers.

They look like legal products

But with colorful boxes and names like Cherry Kush and Blue Dream, the homemade vapes appear convincing on the shelf.

“It doesn’t look very different from what you can buy in a (legal) dispensary,” said Beverly Hills-based cannabis attorney Allison Margolin.

So far, investigators have not identified a culprit in the illnesses reported in dozens of states. But officials say patients have mentioned the Dank name frequently. Many of the people who got sick in Illinois and Wisconsin, for example, said they used cartridges sold in Dank packaging.

The raw materials to produce a Dank vape aren’t hard to find: Ready-to-fill Dank boxes and cartridges can be ordered from Chinese internet sites for pennies apiece. A Craigslist post last week offered a box stuffed with empty Dank packages for $16. And you can buy the boxes and empty cartridges in shops in downtown Los Angeles.

A rogue producer adds cannabis oil—almost certainly untested—and it’s ready for sale.

“It’s a generic product name that doesn’t really tie back to one store or one distributor,” Dr. Jennifer Layden, chief medical officer for the Illinois Department of Public Health, said last month. “Folks are getting it from friends or folks on the street, with no understanding of where it came from prior to that.”
