A Changing Landscape: The 2019 EVALI Outbreak
The year 2019 brought a significant shift in the cannabis vaping landscape with the EVALI outbreak. This crisis stirred up the cannabis vape industry, causing some businesses to become easy targets in the court of public opinion. The incident prompted a critical need for companies to design safer products and expand their due diligence testing during the product development phase. With vaping remaining a popular form of consumption, particularly among GenZ users, the industry found itself at a crossroads.
