If someone asked me “whether or not extracts are safe”, I would likely say no, but in the most general sense. As in, I would not want anyone to have the impression that they can waltz into their local supermarket or food specialty shop, and think “Oooh extracts! I can use those in vaping!”.
But right or wrong, I see/view Medicine Flower in a different light. I’m not sure if it’s because of (my ignorance of, or confidence in; though I’m betting on the latter) the difference in the process that MF uses (CO2), or if I’ve been inadvertently jaded by exposure to all the extreme vegan/vegetarian/health nuts who promote the “it can’t have ANYTHING unhealthy/unsafe” in it or it’s not <insert self-segregating, group approved, ‘acceptance label’ label here>.
Seriously though, I understand what you’re saying. And I’m glad that we all have the option to choose what we prefer.
But having said that, and by the same token…
That’s not even a concern IMO. Because…
As several of us have agreed previously, while you can’t legislate for stupidity, NOR can you take responsibility for some jackass who’s too lazy to do his research (which includes due diligence in following up on ‘ideas presented by parties unknown to the reader’) beforehand!!
At that point, it turns into a Darwin Award in my opinion.
Anyways, before I get any further off (there’s been a LOT of “stupid” running rampant in other places lately, so “my capacitor is already overcharged”)…
True. But, if the chemists of Olde (aka “magicians”) didn’t pass their insights along to those who were able to understand the concepts and premises (overall), such subjects NEED to be discussed in my opinion. If for no other reason, then to dispel the associated “that’s voodoo/witchcraft” factor that’s associated (and the fear that results).
I’d rather have folks react like Paul (when listing Specifications) and having their eyes glaze over from being disinterested, than to have an unfounded reaction of fear due to lack of exposure to, or familiarity with, a word or compound they’ve never heard of before.
Most everything has a scientific name, and it’s beyond me when most folks auto-panic when they see a scientific name. /smh
Take a White Pine tree… Everyone’s cool with that. But say “Pinus Monticola”…and yeah.
OMGosh!! It’s got cola in it! AVOID!!
ANYWAYS… please excuse my verbal wandering.
All I wanted to say was PLEASE don’t feel like you should not contribute, on the basis of someone doing something stupid. YOU can’t prevent that. Nor are you responsible for it.
