It's not clear whether some patients vaped both cannabis and nicotine products.

For anyone unfamiliar, vitamin E is commonly found in foods like almonds, canola oil and olive oil, which also can be present in supplements and skin care products.

E-cigarettes, which have been available in the USA since about 2007 and have grown into a more than $6 billion-a-year industry, are battery-powered devices that typically heat a flavored nicotine solution into an inhalable aerosol. This statement was based on interviews with the patients, however the state agency is working with the FDA to coordinate samples of suspected THC products for testing.

The state Health Department did not disclose any information about the Central New York case. "We continue to work with the CDC and FDA to look at all possible links to the illness, including nicotine, THC, CBD, synthetic marijuana, and other compounds".

These hospitalized with vaping-associated injuries have signs together with cough, chest ache, and trouble respiration. In many cases, patients reported using vaping products that included cannabis or THC, the active ingredient in marijuana, before falling ill.

Although the discovery of a common chemical in lab tests from the FDA and New York's highly regarded Wadsworth Center lab offers a potential lead, officials cautioned that they are a long way from understanding what exactly is making so many people sick.

"I urge everyone that now uses vaping devices to inhale THC or nicotine to stop immediately, and encourage others to not begin using these products..."

On Wednesday, Oregon officials reported that a middle-aged adult who died of a severe pulmonary illness in late July had used a cannabis product purchased from one of Oregon's state-regulated marijuana stores.

But Dr. Tony Cappello, the director of the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment's Disease Control and Environmental Epidemiology Division, said in a statement to Denver7 on Thursday afternoon that Colorado and federal officials were treating the NY findings as a lead and not final answer. The agency has issued three recalls in the past, he said.

Cases of serious lung illness potentially caused by vaping - primarily in teens - have been cropping up around the nation. "Less is known about vaping cannabis oil".

Vitamin E is not an approved additive for vape products approved by New York's medical marijuana program, and Zucker says the cartridges they tested appear to be "black-market" products purchased off the street - not in medical dispensaries. The death of a second person was reported in IL in late August. "If you inhale particles of oil, that can cause a lung reaction". "It's not intended for them", he said.
