She said: “Our advice to anybody who uses an e-cigarette is, quite simply, never charge them overnight or when you are out of the house. They should, ideally, be charged during the day when you are in – and not for long periods of time.

“Equally, we highly recommend that people pay close attention to the instructions, manufacturer guidance and warning supplied with the products – and always look out for the CE mark that indicates the chargers comply with European Safety Standards.

“Finally, we have seen an incident in the past where somebody had loose coins in their pocket that came into contact with some loose e-cigarette batteries – causing them to catch fire. This too is something to be aware of and avoid.”

Cannabidiol products available in Summerland – Ashcroft Cache Creek Journal

A Summerland business is offering consultations and information about cannabidiol, a cannabis compound used for its medical benefits.

As Summerland Gold and Silver Exchange celebrates five years in business they are expanding with Green Gaia Health and Wellness products at 13209 Victoria Rd. N.

Katerina Roshier, business partner, says cannabinoid receptors, located throughout the body, are part of the endocannabinoid system, which is involved in a variety of physiological processes including appetite, pain-sensation, mood, and memory. For two decades it has been known that the human body also produces its own cannabinoids. Plant-derived cannabinoids are characterized by their ability to act on the CBD receptors that are part of our endocannabinoid system.

The products they carry are 99 per cent pure extracts, with no psychoactive properties but with the medical benefits of cannabis.

“Our clientele base is anyone seeking relief and meeting the needs of our elderly,” she said.

“People of all ages including the elderly are coming in here,” added her business partner Dionne Bakalos.

Roshier and Bakalos both have autoimmune disease and have used cannabis products for treatment.

“If I didn’t have these products, I wouldn’t be able to work,” Bakalos said. “If we can help other people, it will make a huge difference.”

She said the products she carries are locally sourced and government regulated. The products include cannabidiol isolate, capsules, phoenix tears, vaporizers and CBD juice.

In the future, the store will also carry tinctures, oils, bath and body and pet care products.

Roshier has extensive experience in the industry and uses the products she carries.

“Our premise is to work with the government, educational institutions, health care providers, the District of Summerland and law enforcement to increase the understanding of medical cannabis,” she said, adding that the store does not carry any restricted cannabis products

Health impact of E-cigarettes: a prospective 3.5-year study of regular daily users who have never smoked – The Heartland Institute

November 17, 2017

By Riccardo Polosa, Fabio Cibella, Pasquale Caponnetto, Marilena Maglia, Umberto Prosperini, Cristina Russo and Donald Tashkin

A study examines the long-term health risks on nine daily electronic cigarette users over a three and a half years period of time.

Although electronic cigarettes (ECs) are a much less harmful alternative to tobacco cigarettes, there is concern as to whether long-term ECs use may cause risks to human health. We report health outcomes (blood pressure, heart rate, body weight, lung function, respiratory symptoms, exhaled breath nitric oxide [eNO], exhaled carbon monoxide [eCO], and high-resolution computed tomography [HRCT] of the lungs) from a prospective 3.5-year observational study of a cohort of nine daily EC users (mean age 29.7 (±6.1) years) who have never smoked and a reference group of twelve never smokers. No significant changes could be detected over the observation period from baseline in the EC users or between EC users and control subjects in any of the health outcomes investigated. Moreover, no pathological findings could be identified on HRCT of the lungs and no respiratory symptoms were consistently reported in the EC user group. Although it cannot be excluded that some harm may occur at later stages, this study did not demonstrate any health concerns associated with long-term use of EC in relatively young users who did not also smoke tobacco.
