Frequently Asked Questions About Vaping
What is the issue with vaping and possible respiratory and pulmonary illnesses?
The Center for Disease Control (CDC) has notified the public about a recent wave of respiratory and pulmonary cases potentially attributed to the use of e-cigarette products.
Do we know what is causing this?
The reasons are unknown at this time, and cases have been reported related to both e-cigarette nicotine devices and cannabis vape pens. The CDC and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) are working closely with state health officials to gather information on products or substances used.
What happens to a person who becomes affected by this?
Please refer to the CDC website for the latest information. Additionally, you may also refer to the Department of Health website.
E-cigarettes and vape pens have been available for several years. What has changed?
That hasn’t been made clear. While vape technology has been available to consumers for approximately a decade, it is only in recent months that respiratory and pulmonary illnesses potentially linked to vaping have been reported.
How are your products tested?
The safety and well-being of our patients and customers is our top priority. Every product must pass third-party testing by an independent laboratory to ensure that they meet the state’s regulations for safety and purity.
Are there alternatives to vaping that I could try?
The CDC recommends that any person who is concerned about overall health dangers from vaping should refrain from utilizing e-cigarette devices. Concentrates and tinctures are among the many alternative means of dosing cannabis. Pennsylvania has determined which of these alternatives can be made available to consumers as part of the state’s legal cannabis program.
If I feel sick after vaping, what should I do?
You should report any circumstances of serious breathing problems and/or chest pain to your doctor.
Where can I obtain additional information?
The CDC and the FDA will continue to advise and alert the public as more information becomes available. The CDC statement can be found here. You should also refer to the state Department of Health website.

In June 2017, Prime Wellness was one of the first 12 companies licensed to grow and process medical marijuana in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. The “prime” family of medical marijuana products have been available at Solevo Wellness since late August 2018. Prime Wellness built a state-of-the-art 30,000-square-foot indoor facility in South Heidelberg Township, where the team focuses on producing quality products for Pennsylvania patients and caregivers. Backed by Acreage Holdings – its parent company – with one of the most diverse portfolios of cultivation, processing and dispensary operations in the United States – Prime Wellness has significant access to industry-wide knowledge, national best practices, and expertise.
