Marijuana and your health: LUNG INJURIES

BY: Chadwick Rhodes January 5, 2020

DANGER VAPING CBD or THC OIL

What to do when your medicine is in the form of CBD or THC and you vape. Good question these days with all the deaths and sickness related to these products.

Today about 1/3 of our population medicate in some way with CBD or THC. Smoking, Vaping, Chewable, Internal and External Tinctures and creams. You name it and it seems to be concocted with some type of CBD or THC.

As we have found out in the last few months it is better to roll a joint with a regular cigarette filter and smoke it. Not only is the filter collecting the tar, but it also collects any moisture and still does the job. Obvious dry smoke is much better for your lungs then moisture infused vapors.

I am not sure why vaping and e-cigarette products were able to reach the consumers. I suppose it was for the high uptick in Oil production and the CBD craze that came fast. Everyone wanted to jump on board to maximize their company profits and the FDA stood idle. It’s all about the bottom line. $$$$$$

CDC Update as of December 3, 2019… Vitamin E Acetate is the latest to get the blame for 2,500 REPORTED lung injury (EVALI) Patients. Those are only the ones that have been reported and not confused with other illnesses or poisons.

As we have seen in the past few weeks that these products are Un-Regulated for purity from harmful Metals and Toxins.
Let’s not be stupid and deny how many people are actually using these products. It is in the Millions.. So don’t be fooled into thinking we don’t need to pay attention to these warnings. When so many are using these products for medical and recreational it needs to be regulated so the consumer is protected.

When e cigarettes rolled out they were found to have Radiator fluid as one of the components. Ethylene glycol, the primary ingredient in antifreeze, has the chemical formula C2H6O2. The radiator fluid used in most cars is a half-and-half mixture of water and antifreeze.

Vaping dangerous substances that are homemade in somesone’s garage… NOT A GOOD CHOICE… You have no idea what compounds they have used for manufacturing this product. You could be inhaling and killing your lungs slowly.

Are these cases to be blamed on “Home Made” recipes bought on the street? Not all. There have been different “suspect” reports of many compounds as culprits. From the manufactures having un-pure or dirty CBD crystals that have been brought in from China by the 50 gallon barrel to just recently Vitamin E Acetate. That’s right most of the CBD crystals are brought in from foreign countries. They are “NOT” regulated by the FDA either. Perhaps we need stronger regulations when it comes to importing these Medical use products. Unless they just want us all dead, something needs to be done.

Home made street drugs are contaminated with Metal toxins and harmful additives. Depending on how that Oil, Tar or Dabs was made will depend on the toxin levels. These products are usually made with Butane. This product will contain high amounts of toxins and should not be consumed by anyone.

Rarely will you find street products that are made by using Co2, which is actually a purer form of oil that is extracted from the entire plant. The whole plant is put into the machine right after harvest. There is no drying involved so all the crystals are intact and it makes a very strong potency.

So short story is… The consumer should be able to rely on the dispensaries and USA manufactures for 100% competence in their products.

Researchers have warned that Synthetic Cannabinoids could be linked to many poisonings and deaths. Synthetic cannabinoids are a class of molecules that bind to the same receptors to which cannabinoids in cannabis plants THC and CBD attach. They are designer drugs, commonly sprayed onto plant matter and are usually smoked, although they have also been consumed in a concentrated liquid form in the US and UK since 2016. They have been marketed as herbal incense, or “herbal smoking blends” and sold under common names like K2, Spice, and Synthetic Marijuana. They are often labeled “not for human consumption” for liability defense.

A recent study found a dangerous synthetic, as well as a cough surpresent dextroomethorphan, in one manufactures CBD vaping products.

In a recent study on different products from several different manufactures shows that the potency was barely 1/4 percent of the CBD specified percentage stated on the label.
So this is buyer beware…

It’s hard to know what’s in that gummi bear or bottle.

JUUL wants to know- "WHY ARE YOU PICKING ON US"?

By: Chad Rhodes January 2, 2020

JUUL is just one of the manufacturers being hit with new regulations on e-cigarettes and vaping products.

JUUL says… There is NO Vitamin E Acetate in their product so why us? The FDA is going forward to eliminate fruity flavors that interests youth. JUUL and the other manufacturers will only have 2 flavors left Regular Tobacco and Menthol for their shoppers to choose from. The FDA feels that this will eliminate the use of tobacco related products..

This will have a financial effect for the stock market also. Due to the fact that it will be another hit on the tobacco industry. Tobacco use fell by approximately 1/3 in 2017 due to e-cigarettes and vaping.

The History of the e-cigarette is very interesting. I am not sure why the FDA and CDC did not step up when the e-cigarette was introduced in the USA in 2006 – 2007. What was George W. Bush thinking? I know for a fact that Ethylene glycol was a main ingredient in the E-cigarette when they were still coming from China in 2010. So why didn’t Barrack Obama take them off the market when they knew the E-cigarette was no good? Let’s see what Trump does now… Will this health hazard be banned for good?

This product was poised for trouble from the beginning. The formula was changed by the USA manufacturers who replaced Ethylene glycol (Antifreeze) with PROPYLENE GLYCOL AND GLYCERINE. So no testing on the lab rats for the Chinese version and USA version which has no real testing to back up the release of the e-cigarette or vaping into the USA.

In 2006 China started exporting e-cigarettes containing Ethylene glycol, the primary ingredient in antifreeze, has the chemical formula C2H6O2.

Ethylene glycol poisoning is poisoning caused by drinking ethylene glycol.[1] Early symptoms include intoxication, vomiting and abdominal pain.[1] Later symptoms may include a decreased level of consciousness, headache, and seizures.[1] Long term outcomes may include kidney failure and brain damage.[1] Toxicity and death may occur after drinking even a small amount.[1] Ethylene glycol is a colorless, odorless, sweet liquid, commonly found in antifreeze.[1] It may be drunk accidentally or intentionally in an attempt to cause death.[2] When broken down by the body it results in glycolic acid and oxalic acid which cause most of the toxicity.[1][4] The diagnosis may be suspected when calcium oxalate crystals are seen in the urine or when acidosis or an increased osmol gap is present in the blood.[1] Diagnosis may be confirmed by measuring ethylene glycol levels in the blood; however, many hospitals do not have the ability to perform this test.[1]

The warning about e-cigarettes containing this chemical came out in the news in 2010. That is 4 years after being on the USA market and still the US did nothing to stop this product. NO RECALL… NOTHING

So why in the world was this allowed by our country to be used as a consumer product in the first place???? Case after case has been reported about Pneumonia and other illnesses related to wet lung syndrome, ARDS.

You might as well say, “People were better off using cigarettes and just dying from cancer, at least they lived longer”.

INGREDIENTS FROM JUUL’s WEBSITE :

PROPYLENE GLYCOL AND GLYCERINE (30/60 MIX)

(UP TO 90%)

Propylene glycol and glycerine are clear liquids that are used to create a visible vapor, and are commonly used by the medical, beauty and food industries. A majority, if not all e-liquids, contain propylene glycol (PG).

BENZOIC ACID

Benzoic acid is a naturally occurring ingredient, found in tobacco and other substances. When combined with nicotine as part of our nicotine salts formulation, it helps provide cigarette-like satisfaction.

NICOTINE

Nicotine is a stimulant that comes from the tobacco plant. We use highly purified/USP grade/pharmaceutical grade nicotine.

FLAVOR

JUULpods flavors consist of both naturally occurring and artificial flavor ingredients which provide the specific taste profile for each flavor.

Propylene glycol

Propylene glycol (IUPAC name: propane-1,2-diol) is an organic compound with the chemical formula CH3CH(OH)CH2OH. It is a viscous, colorless liquid, which is nearly odorless but possesses a faintly sweet taste. Containing two alcohol groups, it is classed as a diol. It is miscible with a broad range of solvents, including water, acetone, and chloroform. In general, glycols are non-irritating, have very low volatility and very low toxicity.

It is produced on a large scale primarily for the production of polymers. In the European Union, it has the E-number E1520 for food applications. For cosmetics and pharmacology, the number is E490. Propylene glycol is also present in propylene glycol alginate, which is known as E405. Propylene glycol is a compound which is generally recognized as safe (GRAS) by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) under 21 CFR x184.1666 and is also approved by FDA for certain uses as an indirect food additive. Propylene glycol is approved and used as a vehicle for topical, oral and some intravenous pharmaceutical preparations in U.S. and in Europe.

Have they ever had any studies on Smoking or Vaping Propylene glycol. This product / chemical is in the same category as Acetone. I don’t think I would vape or smoke acetone. Acetone, or propanone, is the organic compound with the formula (CH3)2CO.[15]

  • Acetone is a colorless, volatile, flammable liquid and is the simplest and smallest ketone.
  • Acetone serves as an important solvent in its own right, typically for cleaning purposes in laboratories
  • Familiar household uses of acetone are as the active ingredient in nail polish remover and as paint thinner.

SO NOW YOU HAVE WET SMOKE GOING INTO YOUR LUNGS… NICE!!!

The Whole Point Of E-Cigarettes was to make smoking healthier. Tragic how money will always come out above anything in this society.. SAD

SERIOUSLY!!! YOU WANT TO VAPE THIS CRAP!!! START INVESTIGATING WHAT THE HECK YOU ARE PUTTING IN YOUR BODY…

It makes you wonder how much does our FDA really investigate these products before they give the ok…. This needs to change. REGULATIONS actually has a meaning…

Any questions pertaining to this subject can be sent to: Dr. Jennifer Rodriguez Pippins, who is the Associate Director for Clinical Programs in the Office of Medical Products and Tobacco at the FDA.

Being Followed in a retail store?

BY: Chad Rhodes

Nope not the “BIG” retail store following me, not even the stores under cover security…

Shopping these days you really have to watch your surroundings. If I would not have been aware, I don’t think I would have caught on to what was happening…

The other day I had to go to store for somethings in the electronic section.
I was noticing this young man maybe about 13 or 14 years of age following me.

Every Isle I stopped on he came down the isle. Then he was standing behind me. I then noticed he kept pointing his phone towards me.

Both my wallet and phone were in my back pocket. I was not sure if he wanted my wallet or what. So I turned around and had my back to the shelf. He came and stood right next to me and put his phone by his side, but still pointing at me.

I thought this was to be very odd. He continued to follow me for about 20 minutes until the area was getting crowded and he finally left me alone.

I think he was trying to hack my phone and take credit card information from my phone.

I do not carry my credit cards in a cloud, online wallet or any other place stored on my phone. It is too dangerous with advanced technology that is easliy used by criminals these days.

So many find it to be handy. Well it’s handy for the criminals also.

I am old fashioned when it comes to what information I will share with my phone.

There is a common hacker tool called “Midnight Raids”. The only requirement for this program is 2 working phones and a good Wi-Fi signal.

It will take all your information.

So be safe and keep an eye out for who is following you around.

This is how it all starts… Peloton Wife breaks her silence…

By: Linda Rhodes

Usually my husband writes the articles. But due to the fact of all the controversy over this subject he thought it would be best if the view came from a woman. So here it is.

Many viewers of the controversial Peloton holiday commercial have had some very negative malicious feedback towards the man in the Peloton ad started a fire storm online.

Everyone wanted to add their 2 cents of really negative comments. Comments suggesting that he was a womanizer to a beast that beats his wife. REALLY PEOPLE!!!!

All you paranoid “Debbie Downers” she is not abused physically nor emotionally. She likes looking great. She likes being healthy. That’s what the commercial is about. Living Healthy

What is wrong with wanting to look and feel wonderful? You can stay home and continue to force feed yourself and your family till you all tip the scales off the chain. That is your choice. But stop making it seem that this is a bad thing for women. It’s a good thing to exercise…

Didn’t your mom tell you to keep your mouth shut if you didn’t have anything nice to say about someone… Well heed to the saying… There, now you can have something new to be pissed off about… Your Welcome!!

Peloton issued a statement over the controversial ad, saying in part, “Our holiday spot was created to celebrate that fitness and wellness journey. While we’re disappointed in how some have misinterpreted this commercial, we are encouraged by — and grateful for — the outpouring of support we’ve received from those who understand what we were trying to communicate.

I LOVE MY PELOTON …

Being Held Hostage For Your Files…

By: Chad Rhodes   May 31, 2019

All the hours that go into building a website and E-Commerce sites is endless. The first 30 days are the most crucial. That is where you build your identity with your logo and products.
Before you build your store or site online you need to enter all the data into excel or which ever program you use, documents and forms can be made, and Images placed into an excel form. If there is one thing I would like to recommend is to make all your work on your PC or MAC first. Continue to do your updates on all products and documents on your PC and import the files to your store or Website.
If you are going to have a store make sure that the website or store hosting Company allows you to export and import files in a few different formats.

People have paid good money for an Online Store or website to be hosted by some large companies just to be disappointed with the features, or lack of.
For example, GoDaddy does not allow EXPORT of your product files from your store. Its called Proprietary Software Systems or just JUNK Builder Hosts.
Proprietary software, also known as “closed-source software”, is a non-free computer software for which the software’s publisher or another person retains intellectual property rights—usually copyright of the source code, but sometimes patent rights. Rights to pictures and files that you created.
Some examples of proprietary software include Microsoft Windows, iTunes, Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Flash Player, DELL, Hewlett Packard, APPLE and many more.

According to ShivarWeb Article:,
Cons of GoDaddy Website Builder
As a hosted website builder, there are inherent disadvantages that GoDaddy shares with even direct competitors such as Wix and Weebly. To provide maximum convenience, most features are heavily limited. You also don’t have access to your files on your server, along with other convenience and control trade-offs.
I’ll cover these disadvantages as a group in the next Alternatives section.
Outside of those inherent limitations, here are a few specific disadvantages that I have found with GoDaddy’s website builder. END
I really thought GoDaddy would have had better features then WordPress… I have learned through my own mistakes and reading interviews that GoDaddy is over priced and has very little features for E-Commerce store fronts. CSV File EXPORT does not exists on the GoDaddy Store platform.
I recently had a live Chat session with the go Daddy reps. The first chat the person suggested I download a program from chrome called “Export GoDaddy Products”. Gave me a website link that looked more like an affiliate code and told me to go there. $29.99 was a monthly charge for me to export CSV store files. Once I found this out I contacted GoDaddy Chat again and this is the response I received.

You at 13:22, May 31:
your Company provided the information and I will call directly.

I called GoDaddy and reported this chat. I also asked is there no way for me to Export my Files. He said there was no way. The Ecommerce Stores platform did not have those features and he does not know why I received that link. He sees the first chat in the history. Unfortunately I did not copy the first chat for you to see. It seemed to me the Rep I was speaking with really wasn’t concerned that someone is sending Affiliate links while answering GoDaddy Chat Session on GoDaddy Support line.
My Question is how much control does GoDaddy have over there Chat Support Teams. Another concern I have with their security. Sending affiliate links in chats, unless GoDaddy really does have knowledge of these links.. Money is the bottom line for these companies. The chat person see’s all your information. They have your Pin Numbers and customer numbers.
I don’t know if the CEO’s forgot and left GoDaddy “as is” to die off as they made WordPress into one of the finest website hosts. The features are absolutely awesome on WordPress.com
As Far as I am considered GoDaddy is my LAST CHOICE for recommendation….
Register.com or WordPress.com are the leaders you can Export your files from both those platforms. They have several features and improve their platforms to be the best on the market.
