Public health warning: Stop using vaping products
The Oregon Health Authority is urging Oregonians to stop using all vaping products until federal and state officials have determined the cause of serious lung injuries and deaths linked to the use of both cannabis and nicotine vaping products.
The Oregon Health Authority's Public Health Division is working to minimize negative public health impacts from cannabis use. Consumers should exercise caution when using any cannabis product. Consumers should consult their health care provider if they intend to use cannabis products for therapeutic or medical purposes.
Cannabis is a general term that describes products made from the Cannabis sativa or Cannabis indica plant. Oregon Public Health Division uses the term cannabis in most cases, but in some instances the term “marijuana” still appears for legal or historical reasons.
The two primary chemical substances (i.e. cannabinoids) in cannabis are tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD).
Under Oregon law, marijuana is cannabis containing more than 0.3% THC; hemp is cannabis containing less than 0.3% THC.
