It had been a while since we had heard from the Minister of Health, Marisol Tourraine, and honestly we were no worse off. But voila, as soon as the word " E-Cigarette "Is pronounced, she cannot help arriving with her white horse (even if between us it must be missing one or two legs ...) and combined with the word" Cannabis »The call of the foot was too strong… We are obviously talking about the buzz« Kanavape », this hemp e-cigarette which was announced recently and which is now making a lot of noise. So " Kanavape " what's this ? A good idea ? A bad buzz for vaping?
KANAVAPE: A SIMPLE SPRAY OF HEMP?
Before igniting the subject, let's already try to find out about this product. Operating on the principle of an e-cigarette, Kanavape offers the possibility of vaping a certified hemp-based product that does not contain THC and does not cause any psychotic or euphoric effects. According to the designers, Kanavape is completely legal since hemp is a product that has been cultivated in France for several hundred years. And the law specifies that since 2008, in France, the THC rate must be less than 0,3% in accordance with European regulations. Kanavape's goal? Offer cannabis consumers and people who appreciate the taste and smell of hemp an identical product but without the harmful effects…. Or not…!
IS THIS ONE SO BAD IDEA IN THE PRINCIPLE?
A significant media reduction is coming to the world of vaping and this project is not really appreciated by many vapers. But is it such a bad idea in principle? We forget quite quickly that the e-cigarette is a tool to quit smoking, so why this product would not be therapeutic for many people in need .. As long as this product does not contain or very little THC, it remains difficult to throw stones at him! And even if the image of our beloved e-cigarette will still take a hit, let's not forget that everything is subject to contention anyway.
AND MARISOL GOT INTO THE BRECHE… AND CREATED THE BAD BUZZ!
Obviously the opportunity was too good for our dear Minister of Health not to put his two cents in. According to her, Kanavape "constitutes an incentive to potentially consume cannabis" reprehensible by law". She therefore asked her services " to study in a very precise way the situation of this product", She explained, with" the intention to seize the judge ”To ban its marketing. Whether we agree or not on the subject, we will notice that once again Marisol Touraine did not wait to tackle a subject which concerns vaping. It seems that for our Minister of Health, every flaw that could discredit vaping is good to take. On the other hand, we have not heard of the studies and all the benefits that the e-cigarette can bring.
KANAVAPE DEFENDS FACING THE MINISTER'S REMARKS!
«When Marisol Touraine declares that there is a public health problem, she is right but the problem is not KanaVape. The problem is the government's inaction on cannabis risk reduction policy, and the lack of medical research on the use of cannabinoids in France»
Kanavape explains that " cannabis is a plant containing more than 80 cannabinoids And among them " only THC Has euphoric, psychotic and recreational effects, according to the company. The new product uses another substance from hemp, cannabidiol or CBD which is touted as "anti-psychotic", "non-euphoric" and "relaxing". "The virtues of cannabidiol (CBD) are numerous with in particular benefits on stress, relaxation, sleep", explains the company founded by two French entrepreneurs, Sébastien Béguerie and Antonin Cohen who have been campaigning for several years for the medical use of cannabis.
Especially since this product has already existed for a very long time in many countries such as Switzerland, and it has never caused so much controversy. The manager of the company "Kanavape" will quite simply end up confiding " We know a much more peaceful success abroad" page (in French).
A BAD BUZZ FOR VAPE… THANKS WHO? THANK YOU MARISOL!
And yes, because clearly, whether we agree or not on the subject of the product "Kanavape" which could be discussed and debated for hours, the person who created this new "Bad buzz" on the e-cigarette is none other than our Minister of Health. "Kanavape" offers a specific product that is legally in the nails. So why once again are we doing all the media exposure on assumptions and accusations of inciting this or that? In short, we can be for or against “Kanavape” but what is certain is that every flaw, every breach that can discredit us will be used by our government.
