Vitamin E acetate, in combination with THC, has been identified as a 'strong culprit' in the outbreak of e-cigarette-related lung injuries, according to officials from the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Vitamin E acetate, an additive sometimes used in THC and other vaping products, may be to blame for a national outbreak of e-cigarette-related lung injuries that's linked to dozens of deaths, according to US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention officials.

Dr. Anne Schuchat, the principal deputy director of the CDC, said she would characterize it as a breakthrough in the agency's investigation, although more tests are necessary.Vaping lung injury cases now top 2,000, CDC says"These new findings are significant," Schuchat said during a press briefing on Friday."We have a strong culprit."There is still more work to do and the CDC said it is continuing to test for a wide range of chemicals."This does not rule out other possible ingredients," Schuchat said."There may be more than one cause."Read MoreThe CDC says its tests found vitamin E acetate in samples taken from 29 patients who were sick with vaping-related illness in 10 states. THC, or tetrahydrocannabinol, the primary psychoactive component of the cannabis plant, or its metabolites were detected in 23 of 28 patients. Nicotine metabolites were detected in 16 of 26 patient specimens.During the press briefing, CDC's Dr. James Pirkle described vitamin E acetate as"enormously sticky" when it goes into the lungs, and it"does hang around." Pirkle said it wouldn't be unusual for THC to be absent from some of the samples because it leaves the lungs faster. He added finding THC in 82% of the samples from 28 patients was"noteworthy." In September, New York health officials linked cases of severe lung illness to vitamin E acetate in cannabis-containing vaping products. At the time, investigators said it was"a key focus" of the state's investigation into the illnesses.Until the investigation is complete, the CDC suggests people refrain from using all vaping products with THC, no matter where people buy them. The investigation has found that many of these products patients used were bought online or received through friends or family, rather than through vaping shops or at licensed THC dispensaries.Vitamin E is used in several products, such as lotions and in supplements, but the CDC said there is a"big difference" in putting vitamin E on the skin or swallowing it in pill and in inhaling the oily vitamin.Get CNN Health's weekly newsletter Sign up here to get The Results Are In with Dr. Sanjay Gupta every Tuesday from the CNN Health team.

“they found the majority of cases of the people who were sick used THC, and that their materials came from 'informal sources.' In Illinois, she said, they had not had any cases associated with the state's medical marijuana program.” It is NOT used in LEGAL THC extraction. It is the illegal black market bullshit.

Everybody told you this weeks ago before you artificially hyped up the danger of nicotine vapes Schiff blames the American President Wow, we finally get the truth from a large media outlet. This has been known since the hype started. Meanwhile we got all these lovely bans. bresla_linda 'Pirkle said it wouldn't be unusual for THC to be absent from some of the samples because it leaves the lungs faster.' Vitamin E is called the 'culprit' because it's present. THC is not present -- it leaves the lungs. THC is not the culprit.

So, THC and VitaminE oils Does JUULvapor make this product BAD headline CNN. You can easily remove the 'in combination with THC.' But no, just keep with the click-bate scare tactics. Maybe it’s time to regulate and legalize, then? MAYBE?! who smokes an electronic cigarette has shit in his head.
