Researchers tested different cannabinoid acetates and tried to measure how much ketene was produced in a single vape puff.
A new study shows further evidence of the harms of vaping.
Conducted by researchers from Portland State University and published in the journal of Chemical Research in Toxicology , the study claims that the process of heating up cannabinoid acetates creates a toxic gas called ketene that’s harmful to the lungs.
“The thing we’re most concerned about is prolonged exposure, we don’t know what that is,” said Kaelas Munger, a doctoral student and one of the authors of the study. “That’s why papers like ours are needed. Otherwise, people would be exposed to this really toxic substance and it’s really impossible to look for the evidence.”
