In Sweet Mary's Charms, I expressed concern that we were mixing and dabbing our own recipes of terpenes, in concentrations high enough to be of health concern, and listed what was known about the most common terpenes found in cannabis.
As noted, in concentration some of the terpenes are used to sanitize toilet bowls and strip paint, while in medicinal doses are theraputic.
Now we have yet another foreign substance offered for us to suck into our lungs as vapor, with even less data as to the long term effects, and ostensibly they aren't therapeutic.
I of course don't have those answers either, but intuitively I believe that after enough time to establish the extended effects of sub fatal chronic usage, we will have some damaged folks and lawsuits.
In 1994, the tobacco industry published a 599 constituent list of substances that can be found in pipe tobacco, which was subsequently sprinkled with holy water.
If you Google 599 list, you will see that it is rife with terpenes, and includes glycerol, and coconut oil, but not PG, PEG, MCT, squalane, et al. I would first check to see if it is on that list.
If the diluent/adulterant is not on that list, if/when there are lawsuits, there is less precedent, so they will ostensibly be less defensible.
An age is called Dark not because the light fails to shine, but because people refuse to see it.
Believing is seeing and ignorance is bliss until it bites you in the ass!
Fervor is the weapon of the impotent. The harder the sell, the poorer the product.
Alas, my ignorance abounds; the more I've learned, the less I know that I know..........
Thou shalt seek and respect the opinions of operators, even unto the third helper, for theirs is a wisdom unknown to technicrats.
Wise men learn more from fools, than fools from wise men.
In my dotage I finally discovered that the secret to putting on pants both legs at a time is sitting down.
