2019 Vaping Deaths: What You Must Know to Stay Safe

To our Colony:

We started Bee-Nails because we wanted to make safer, healthier vaporizer products for ourselves, our friends and family, and everyone. That’s why we built Bee-Nails, and we work everyday towards that goal.

We are deeply saddened by the recent illnesses and deaths linked to dubious vape products, and want to express our sympathy to all those who have been affected. The Bee-Nails team hopes that these events will lead to more reform in the industry and consumer awareness of the dangers of using vaporizer products from unlicensed retailers. 

When and where did this happen?

As of Friday September 13, 2019, we have learned of six total deaths in the U.S. from lung disease relating to vaping. They happened in Kansas, California, Minnesota, Indiana, Oregon and Illinois. None of these deaths were connected to e-nails or any Bee-Nails vaporizer products.

There have also been more than 450 possible cases of lung illness associated with using e-cigarettes, e-juices and some THC cartridges as opposed to concentrates coming from trusted suppliers in Colorado. 

How did this happen?

The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the Food and Drug Administration and state health departments have been investigating these recent deaths and illnesses. New York health officials have stated that extremely high levels of the chemical vitamin E acetate were found in nearly all vaping products that were analyzed as part of the investigation. At least one vape product containing this chemical has been linked to each person who fell ill and submitted a product for testing in the state.

What does this mean?

As the Bee-Nails Colony knows, all of our products meet and exceed safety regulations, and we go above and beyond what is required in our own product testing to ensure the highest quality and safety of every single item we sell. None of our products have been involved in any of the reported incidents. 

Until more results come from these investigations we encourage everyone to use extreme caution when using pre packaged products that are cut with any types of solvents. We take pride in creating open source vaporizers like our e-nails and portable vaporizers with ceramic chambers to load yourself as opposed to pre filled carts that can't guarantee quality. 

We are committed to continue to educate the world about the best and safest vaporizer consumption practices—thank you for all you do to help us spread the word. 

Bee Your Best,


The Bee Nails team
