Investigation Finds Soy Oil in YHN Product, Prompts Recall
Oregon regulators investigate YHN products for synthetic flavorings and ban the use of soybean oil in vaping products.

Regulatory authorities in the state of Oregon, USA have launched an investigation into the inclusion of "artificial flavors" as an ingredient in YHN products. During an inspection of one of the products, the OLCC discovered soybean oil in the pod. This compound contains triglycerides of glycerol, which are prohibited in e-cigarette products.

As a result, customers who have purchased the product are being asked to return it to the licensed retailer they bought it from or dispose of it, while consumers who may have health-related issues with the recalled product are advised to contact the Oregon Poison Center at 800-222-1222 or their healthcare provider.

Meanwhile, Robert Strongin of Portland State University recently conducted a study discussing the formation of acetone when heating cannabis vapor containing cannabinoid acetates. It is now a well-known fact that the infamous lung injury associated with vaping, EVALI, was caused by inhaling vitamin E acetate found in illegal cannabis vaping products.

A new study by Robert Strongin, Kaelas Munger (a doctoral student), and Robert Jense from Portland State University reports that ethyl ketone is to blame for the harmful effects of a toxic gas that forms when heating up acetic acid and vitamin E.

Researchers aim to accurately determine how much acetone is produced from a cannabis e-cigarette. They focus on certain cannabinoid acetates, such as the unregulated Delta 8 THC acetate. They have found that the discovery temperature of acetone is lower than previously thought.

Our biggest concern is prolonged exposure, as we don't know what it is," explained Mung Chiang. "This is why papers like ours are necessary. Otherwise, people would be exposed to this highly toxic substance with no way of finding evidence," Chiang explained in a university press release.
