E-cigarettes 101

What is an e-cigarette?

Electronic cigarettes – or e-cigarettes – work by heating a liquid to produce an aerosol that users inhale into their lungs. The liquid can contain: nicotine, tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabinoid (CBD) oils, and other      substances, flavorings, and additives. E-cigarettes are also called vapes,   e-hookahs, vape pens, tank systems, mods, and electronic nicotine delivery      systems (ENDS).


What is vaping?

Using an e-cigarette is commonly called vaping. Vaping can refer to using e-cigarettes to inhale many substances, including nicotine, and THC or CBD oils.


What is causing this outbreak of lung injury?

The specific chemical exposure(s) causing lung injuries associated with e-cigarette use, or vaping, remains unknown at this time. No single product or substance has been linked to all lung injury cases. The outbreak is occurring in the context of a dynamic marketplace for e-cigarette or vaping products, which may have a mix of ingredients, complex packaging and supply chains, and include potentially illicit substances. Users may not know what is in their e-cigarette or e-liquid solutions. Many of the products and substances can be modified by suppliers or users. They can be obtained from stores, online retailers, from informal sources (e.g. friends, family members), or “off the street.” More information is needed to know whether one or more e-cigarette or vaping products, substances, or brand is responsible for the outbreak.


How can I protect myself?

While this investigation is ongoing, CDC recommends that you consider refraining from using e-cigarette, or vaping, products, particularly those containing THC. Anyone who uses an e-cigarette or vaping product should not buy these products (e.g., e-cigarette or vaping products with THC or CBD oils) off the street, and should not modify or add any substances to these products that are not intended by the manufacturer. If you are an adult who uses e-cigarettes because you have quit cigarette smoking, you should not return to smoking cigarettes.


What if I’m an adult who quit cigarette smoking and now uses e-cigarettes?

If you are an adult who uses e-cigarettes because you have quit cigarette smoking, do not return to smoking cigarettes. If you continue to use e-cigarettes, carefully monitor yourself for symptoms and see a healthcare provider right away if you have symptoms like those reported in this outbreak.
