Dangers of Vaping Cannabis or Cannabidiol (CBD) Oils
HANFORD - Dr. Milton Teske, Health Officer, with the Kings County Department of Public Health is issuing a warning regarding the dangers of vaping cannabis or CBD oils. Since June, seven cases of Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome (ARDS) have been identified, requiring hospitalization and respiratory support among previously healthy adults. Some of these patients’ conditions were so severe they were admitted to the intensive care unit and required respiratory support through mechanical devices.
In the United States there is currently a multi-state Measles outbreak that is being monitored closely by the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
While we have not had any confirmed cases in Kings County, we wanted to ensure residents and providers that our Communicable Disease team is staying vigilant with our monitoring and screening efforts to ensure the safety of our community.
