In certain territories of the United States, the sale and use of vape products containing cannabis (THC or CBD) is authorized. Yet it is a real blow that could reach professionals in the sector in the state of Oregon. The Oregon Liquor Control Commission (OLCC) wants to ban the use of flavoring in cannabis vaporization products.
It is a lucrative market which could well suffer in the coming weeks, that of the cannabis vape. Indeed, The Oregon Liquor Control Commission (OLCC) wants to prevent manufacturers from mixing THC products with any additive the inhalation of which has not been shown to be safe. It would nevertheless be allowed to add ingredients derived from cannabis, such as aromatic terpenes and cannabinoids, for a natural flavor.
For the manager of the company Sublime Solutions distilling the psychoactive ingredient in cannabis, THC, would be a disaster. He explains that it was devastating for his business last year when the governor of Oregon, Kate Brown, banned flavored vape products. "I lost 70% of my income overnight", did he declare.
If this ban was quickly overturned by the courts, the problem is back today. the Oregon Alcohol Control Commission is proposing a more limited flavor and additive ban focused only on THC vaping products. For the OLCC, the THC vape may taste like cannabis, but that stops it!
