A message to our customers
At Logic, we believe in product quality.
Health authorities in the US and Canada are investigating possible cases of respiratory illnesses, which have been allegedly associated with vaping, and we would like to share our position with you.
What we understand from the US health authorities investigating these cases is that many of the patients in the US acknowledged a history of vaping e-liquids containing THC (cannabis oil). On November 8, 2019 the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reported that vitamin E acetate has been found in all lung samples from 29 patients in 10 states and has identified it as a “chemical of concern” in vaping-related illnesses. Vitamin E acetate is an additive found in some vaping products, typically those that contain THC (a component of cannabis).
At this point in time, very little information has been released about the reported Canadian cases and we do not know if the patients were vaping THC or other illicitly obtained, unregulated e-liquids. Health Canada is advising consumers that “Products obtained from the illegal market are not subject to any controls or oversight and may pose additional risks to your health and safety”. This is sound advice. We recently learned that a London, Ontario teen who fell ill this summer “regularly added THC to his vaping fluid,” which consisted of illegal flavours such as “cotton candy”.
We are not aware of any Logic product being linked to these reports and being part of the respective investigations. In our Logic range of nicotine-containing products, we do not offer THC/cannabis e-liquids and we do not use vitamin E acetate. All Logic e-liquids are subject to a robust product stewardship program, including toxicological assessments and quality control of all ingredients used. Only after having passed thorough this examination are Logic e-liquids released for sale.
We believe that e-cigarettes should be thoughtfully regulated, existing regulation should be enforced and that minors should never vape. This is why our company supports rigorous age verification, health warnings, clear ingredient and nicotine disclosure and the ban on the use of advertising, images and flavours that appeal to youth.
