Vaping deaths and illness has me scared...

Finished HS about 7 months ago, I was vaping almost daily for around 4 of those months, mainly THC and CBD (never nicotine). Was caught once by mom, and haven’t vaped ever since.

Been reading about the hospitalizations and the deaths, and am scared I might have something regarding it... (never thought about it until after the reports, the vaping wasn’t my trigger, upper back pain was).

My friend, who provided me the cartridges, used his own products and had been for the past couple of years, on a daily basis, multiple times a day. He’s still alive and well, and not suffering of anything.

Upper back pain is probably stressed related. I have it all the time when I’m anxious. I have vaped as well and never had anything bad come of it. Your friend is fine and so are you.
