Hemp Vap Kit Tests Positive For Cannabis

July 16, 2014

The Department of Health has advised the public that recent analysis of a ‘Hemp Vap device’ revealed that the “liquid in the atomizer tested positive for the presence of the primary ingredient Delta-9 Tetrahydrocannabinol [THC] of the controlled drug Cannabis.

“THC is responsible for the ‘high’ felt after consumption and possession, importation or sales of THC-containing products are in contravention of the Misuse of Drugs Act 1972,” a spokesperson added.

    • Come Correct says:

      Dude it’s vaporizing pen, not a breathalyser for marijuana. I just can’t understand why you would use it before coming through customs.

    This announcement by Govt is sadly shy of any details by which the public could make sense of it, in which case the question must be asked: “why did they bother?”

    The public needs to know who had or imported it, who tested it, and what the levels were.

      If you know what it is, it would make sense to you, if you dont know what it is, I don’t think it would matter much to you.

      Doesn’t really matter who imported it, could’ve been a wholesale distributor, street/market vendor, or a consumer shopping online. DoH tested it, found it to contained a prohibited substance. Can only assume the alert is for anyone who may have been considering importing similar products that they are prohibited as they contain illegal substances.

      • Come Correct says:

        Ok well lets put it out there then. This device is what destroys all anti-weed persons arguments about the health effects of marijuana use. This is one of the healthiest ways to use marijuana. It vaporizes the chemical compounds (don’t let those words confuse you, ammonium nitrate and potassium nitrate are commonly used chemical compounds that also occur naturally) and leaves the plant itself unburned and almost in its natural state. This is illegal because the government cares about your health.

    From what I read, it doesn’t get you high… It’s something like the E-cigarette but better.

    Don’t all hemp products contain some amount of THC? Go to any health food store and find any ingestible hemp product (pills, tinctures etc.) They will all give a THC concentration. It’s just the concentration is so low it doesn’t produce a high. *sigh* more anti-cannabis propaganda by the Bermudian Gov.

  7. Benjammin says:

    This is also very misleading. it’s basically stating: Cannabis vape pen was found to contain cannabis… ok… my poppy seed bagel was found to contain opium… my apple was found to contain cyanide… but this vapour was found to contain trace amounts of THC and the government sends out a public health warning… stop being so afraid people.

  8. Trubbel says:

    There are many “cannabinoids” (the naturally occurring chemicals in cannabis). THC is the best known, it’s the one that gets you high. If you look at the package, this product claims to be a CBD-rich hemp oil. CBD is cannabidiol, another of those chemicals found in cannabis, except that CBD doesn’t get you high, though it’s supposed to be good fo rpain relief, inflammation, stopping seizures, etc. On testing, they found this product DOES contain THC, even though it claims to contain CBD and states that it will not get you high.

    cannabis is clearly not a controlled drug if someone managed to import this, also i can get weed from a 15yr old on a street corner, so please tell em again how that is controlled?

    first of all its not just THC that causes a high. You have to actually heat it to create a psychoactive response. Eating a THC compound that hasn’t been heated in the cooking process, i.e. juicing cannabis leaves, not produce a high and is actually extremely beneficial for you. A non-user of marijuana, who uses CBD vaporizer, should NOT test positive on a drug test.

    More and more we are beginning to understand that marijuana is far more than a street-level ‘drug’. In fact, research shows that it’s a healing plant — and it doesn’t have to get you high. And as we learn more about this healing plant, we learn there are really a multitude of uses and methods to obtaining its benefits.

    One of the latest methods of reaping its benefits is juicing, as one woman learned the hard way.

    Juicing is a great way to get the best stuff out of plant materials. It makes digestion easy and allows your body to really make the most of what you put into it. So, it stands to reason that many of the benefits associated with smoking, vaporizing, or eating cannabis could be enhanced through juicing.

    High-aside, some argue juicing raw cannabis to be the most beneficial, and it does all of this without getting users stoned. Raw cannabis is not psychoactive. The beneficial compounds within are known as cannabidiols (CBD) and they are not the THC responsible for getting you high.

    Instead, as NaturalNews reports, CBDs “bridge the gap of neurotransmission in the central nervous system, including in the brain by providing a two-way system of communication that completes a positive ‘feedback loop’”.

    Dr. William Courtney, founder of Cannabis International, is largely considered the biggest proponent of raw cannabis juicing. His patient (and wife) has also become a visible advocate after a video featuring her testimony went viral.

    Also a researcher, Kristen Peskuski was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis at age 16. She also had systemic lupus, endometriosis, and a host of other conditions. In her video, she details how raw cannabis helped her get rid of a prescription drug regimen that included 40 different drugs. Also in the video, she discusses the case of a 2-year old child who was able to combat brain tumors with raw cannabis juice.

    “There’s a tendency to discount claims when something appears to be good for everything, but there’s a reason this is the case,” says Dr. Ethan Russo of Seattle in speaking how raw cannabis could benefit immune, nervous, and skeletal systems. “The endogenous cannabinoid system acts as a modulator in fine-tuning a lot of these systems, and if something is deranged biochemically in a person’s body, it may well be that a cannabinoid system can bring things back into balance.”

    While some critics say you would have to juice a quite-expensive amount of cannabis to get enough of it, this is something that could become more feasible as marijuana continues to be deregulated. Leaf introduces Dr. William Courtney and Kristen Courtney of Cannabis International; along with the people involved in researching, promoting, regulating and benefiting from raw cannabis.

    Dr. Courtney is a physician and researcher from Mendocino, California, who gives medical marijuana approvals to qualified patients in Mendocino and Humboldt Counties. Kristen Peskuski is a researcher and patient who put her systemic lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, interstitial cystitis, and numerous other conditions into remission juicing fresh cannabis.

    They help make sense of the science behind patient’s recoveries from a diverse range of medical conditions. Attorneys, physicians, law enforcement, medical care providers, patients and their families discuss their experiences with medical cannabis. They specifically focus on juicing fresh cannabis, which is non-psychoactive and contains medical properties 200-400 times stronger than traditional, heated cannabis.

    Patients have reported success with osteo and rheumatoid arthritis, autoimmune disorders, cancer and many other conditions using this unique therapy.
