The future of Marijuana is not in Cannabis: It's in Yeast!

Or the death of cannibus.
Well, yeast is not the death of Cannabis. Its the death of Marijuana. Or most Marijuana. Like it or not, altruism or not, some spiritualistic aspect of Cannabis growing or not. Humans are not altruistic. As in the case of most kids these days, they just want to vape. Tobacco or Cannabis, something in vape cartridges is killing them. But they are still vaping. Do people care what is in vape cartridges? Methinks not. They just wanna get high.

Cannabis will still be grown commercially for fiber and seed on a grand global scale. The hemp of old. Some if us will continue with older strains. Personally I think that most strains have been polluted with too much indica. OG Kush is everywhere. Chem and Diesel and OG whatever DOMINATE the markets. IMO the current weed shop inventory is mostly crap as a result. The bag weed days had a better selection. Though it was not always available, and I was spoiled rotten in with cheap high quality weed in NorCal in the 1970s from all over the world. The black market genetics flowed to me, the consumer with cash. In those days the genetics (seeds) were considered trash along with the stems.

I honestly think it’s the traces of the element burning into the vapor causing this. Do they have an idea of what’s causing it?

Well if evolution is correct the plant should revert to the dominant strain. Unless the hybrid is just a beast and will keep fighting back.
Not seen here. Cannabis does not revert. It adapts rapidly to climate change though gene switching. Genetic mutations can take hundreds or even thousands of years to happen. Gene switching takes only a few generations. Humans also adapt with gene switching in as little as one generation. This is the result of exposure to events in a male's life before fathering children. Specific example in humans: if your father or grandfather was exposed to a famine in his youth, you are apt to live longer than if they had not been exposed to famine. Used to be that 'experts' thought that most DNA is excess baggage. But as it turns out, a lot of DNA switches on and off other dormant DNA. We humans have spread Cannabis around the globe. Like house cats, Cannabis has a bright future, no matter what happens to us humans along the way. Cannabis has tricked us into global distribution. Also massive hybridization. If you understand evolution, the fastest way to new species is to back cross genetics. Again, with humans, there is a web of former sub species like Neanderthals and Denisovans that split off and were re-bred into our lines to create our modern human DNA. That is with non-African humans. Before that there were many species of hominid in Africa that split off and merged again later. There is no reverting and going back with genetics. Only going forward. Entropy is always increasing. It never decreases. Law of physics.

No. It may be as simple as nicotine and THC overdosing. These vape pens may be toxic due to the concentrations involved. I have seen people pass out from vaping 80% THC oil. Its well known that THC at that high a dose will cause loss of blood tone. In other words, extreme low blood pressure. This does not kill people in itself, as they recover, but they pass out and bang their heads or drive off cliffs. Nicotine in high doses is lethal. Some pens are as high as 36mg/mL nicotine. The CDC says 50 to 60 milligrams of nicotine is a deadly dose for an adult who weighs about 150 pounds.

It may also be trace elements or contaminants in the products. It might be something in the batteries of vape pens. It may also be the oil that is used in vape cartridges, particularity propylene glycol and/or glycerin. Most Cannabis vape oil is tested, but they have led to deaths. One in Oregon and another in LA at least. Most nicotine vape oil is not tested, and many have different levels than the labels show. Cigarettes never killed anyone smoking one at a time. They are deadly over the long run. Joints never killed anyone. Even Paraquat joints never killed anyone. Paraquat is rendered harmless when burned, as it turns out. Lest I would be dead long since. Most of the vape cases in NY have been with black market oil and weed.
