The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on September 6, 2019 on its website the following important health risk information:
- CDC, U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), state and local health departments, and other clinical and public health partners are investigating a multistate outbreak of severe pulmonary disease associated with e-cigarette product (devices, liquids, refill pods, and/or cartridges) use. This investigation is ongoing and has not identified a cause, but all reported cases have a history of using e-cigarette products.
- As of September 6, 2019, over 450 possible cases of lung illness associated with the use of e-cigarette products have been reported to CDC from the following 33 states and 1 U.S. territory
- E-cigarettes are devices that deliver an aerosol to the user by heating a liquid that usually contains nicotine, flavorings, and other chemicals. E-cigarettes can also be used to deliver marijuana or other substances.1
In light of this concerning information, is there a safe alternative to vaping/smoking when it comes to using cannabis-derived products such as CBD?
Yes – The Physician’s Choice CBD has developed a new line of MEDICAL-Mist CBD sprays, using, innovative and patented technology.
Q&A with our Doctors – All You Need to Know About Our CBD Mists
Question: Do the micro-mist sprays require the use of any chemicals or additives that could be harmful, including causing similar respiratory illnesses and death?
Answer: No, there are no dangerous substances used in making our medical mist products and no concerns for damage to lung tissue like with inhaled CBD products. The Physician’s Choice CBD – MEDICAL MISTS are premium, science-based formulas derived from pure extracts of organically-grown agricultural hemp, combined with our proprietary blends of various vitamins and amino acids.
Question: Do the micro-mist sprays absorb well in our bodies?
Answer: Yes. Our patented delivery system provides more effective absorption compared to oral tinctures/drops. This is aided by the extremely small size of the particles and water-solubility (not based in oil) of our product.
Question: What else makes your MEDICAL MISTS products a more desirable option?
Answer: CBD is an unstable compound, which makes all the steps involved in obtaining high-quality CBD from hemp extremely important. CBD is most rapidly susceptible to degradation when exposed to light, followed by air.2 In fact, the FDA requires labeling on a liquid CBD product approved for use in the management of complex epilepsy to be discarded 12 weeks after opening.
Many CBD products you will find are not packaged in containers limiting light exposure, leading to more rapid degradation of the CBD. The most significant challenge, however, is limiting the oxygen exposure to CBD products including tinctures and many oral sprays
Our medical mists are made using a patented process which preserves the integrity of cannabidiol (CBD) by eliminating its exposure to light and oxygen, in addition to providing reliable consistent dosing with each pump of this patented spray system. Therefore, you can be confident that with each use of the spray, you are getting reliable and consistent dosing of stable CBD as it was intended when it was first made.
