Metal free cartridge (MF1000) with child resistance and counterfeit proof package

ACTUAL PICTURE OF MF1000 AND PACKAGING,

California Company Develops Metal-Free Vape Cartridge

High Times, October 10, 2019 By A.J. Herrington

 

A California company is announcing this week that it has developed a new vape cartridge design that protects the cannabis oil inside from any contact with metal parts. The release of the new product comes as the cause for the rash of serious lung injuries associated with vaping continues to elude authorities.

The new cartridge, dubbed the MF-1000, is produced by Global Meds Outlet, a San Diego-based distributor of CBD products. Gino Ajodani, the president of the firm, tells High Times that the cartridge is constructed from high-heat PETG plastic that is proven to be free of arsenic, cadmium, lead, and mercury. Under California state regulations, cannabis products must be lab tested and meet standards for the presence of those four heavy metals before entering the retail market.

Ajodani says that the only metal part in the MF-1000 is its titanium heating coil. To prove that the metal-free cartridges actually contain no heavy metals, Global Meds Outlet took them to a cannabis testing lab to be analyzed. But no test procedure for testing hardware was in place, so Infinite Chemical Analysis Labs in San Diego developed one that used a concentrated nitric acid solution to break down the cartridge.

“They tested the nitric acid for heavy metals first,” Ajodani explains. “Then they dissolved the entire cartridge in the nitric acid, and then they tested the solution again.”

That analysis determined that the MF-1000 had no detectable levels arsenic, cadmium, lead, or mercury. To further validate the results, Ajodani says tests of filled cartridges revealed that cannabis oil was free of heavy metals after seven and 14 days in the cart. Global Meds Outlet plans to continue the testing for cartridges that have been filled for up to 120 days.

 

Lead Found in Cannabis Vape Cartridges

As reported by High Times in January, as the heavy metals testing standards were going into effect it was determined that many vape cartridges on the market were constructed with parts that contain heavy metals. When the cartridges were filled, the metals could leach into the oil through chemical action caused by acidic terpenes.

“And then you end up inhaling either chromium or lead or arsenic,” explains Ajodani.

But instead of ensuring that the cartridges they used were free of heavy metals, Ajodani claims that many cannabis manufacturers began gaming the lab tests, which have no standardized protocols in place. He says that by submitting cartridges to a testing lab on the day they are filled and requesting results in one day, manufacturers are avoiding any chance of heavy metals leaching into the cannabis oil before analysis.

But products often end up in customer’s hands long after that. Ajodani says that label information from a recent purchase of five different vape cartridges at a San Diego dispensary revealed that the products had been manufactured at least six months and up to 10 months previously, plenty of time for leaching to occur. 

The MF-1000 carts are now available to manufacturers, with orders being filled within 10 days, according to Ajodani. The cartridges will only be sold in child-resistant packaging that includes several measures to prevent counterfeiting, including a holographic label and stamped serial number that can be verified by consumers online.

With cannabis vaping products under scrutiny for their safety and subject to bans in some jurisdictions, Ajodani says it’s time for the industry to ensure consumers don’t lose what many consider the most convenient way to enjoy cannabis.

“Let’s get the cartridges right,” he says. “Let’s get the tests done correctly.”

Toxic Metals Found in Cartridges


The metals detected in this study have been associated with multiple adverse health effects under chronic conditions of exposure. 


Neurotoxins such as lead are linked to increased risk of 

cardiovascular and kidney disease. 

The other metals listed are even more nefarious to human organs.


Cartridges Manufacturers and the Heavy Metal Issue


 Manufacturers will face difficulty in sourcing hardware for cartridges that can pass Phase-3 heavy metals testing.


 It is critical for manufacturers of Cartridges to design, engineer and manufacture devices to meet medical quality standards.  


Removing lead from the equation requires changes way up the production chain which means revising the metal recipe at the Chinese foundries. 

 

The Truth And Nothing But The Truth

 

The challenge is that most [U.S. brands] don’t know and don’t want to know what their Cartridges are made of, because then they become liable for it. 


While some of the manufacturers have shifted from nichrome wire to safer components, most have not, and others may be repeating incorrect manufacturing process just to save 35 Cents.

"Do your due diligence, 

Take the empty cartridge that you are using or planing to use 

to a local laboratory for Heavy metals testing,

 Digest it down and see what’s in there.


 The best way to ensure lead can not leach is to prevent 

any lead from being in the cartridge in the first place. 


 There’s definitely a lead problem in vape carts. 

It’s a global problem, and it starts at the metal foundries in China. 


Our Laboratory Test Result for The MF1000 Says it All.


 The MF1000 Challenge:  

 

We challenge all manufacturers of cartridges to a side by side test at the laboratory of their choice for the following tests:

1- Melt down of the cartridge core using acids to reveal content.

2- Testing for Arsenic.

3- Testing for Cadmium.

4- Testing for Lead.

5- Testing for Mercury.

6- Prolonged testing of oils within the cartridge for up to 120 Days.

7- Vapor volume test.

8- Leak test.

9- Discoloration of the oils.

10- Our gravity fed chamber where the oil meets our Titanium coil.

The New Process for Heavy Metal Analysis

THE LABORATORY TEST PROTOCOL FOR THE MF1000

 

The vape cartridges from Global Meds Outlet were tested for 

heavy metals as follows:


The plastic casing was first separated from the outer metal casing on the cartridge using glass cutters. 


The plastic casing was weighed and then allowed to soak in concentrated nitric acid (10 mL) for roughly 12 hours to ensure sufficient extraction of any arsenic, cadmium, mercury, or lead from the surface of the plastic. 


The resulting nitric acid extract was transferred to a 25 mL volumetric flask and diluted to the mark. 


The diluted solution was mixed thoroughly, transferred to a 15 mL centrifuge tube, and injected into the ICP-MS instrument.

Heavy Metal Testing

Heavy metals are associated with serious adverse health effects in humans, ranging from birth defects to kidney disease or cancer. Cannabis plants are more susceptible to heavy metal contamination because they are in a unique class of hyperaccumulating plants that can tolerate uptake of significant levels of heavy metals from soil before their growth cycles are negatively affected. Thus heavy metal testing is vital to ensure consumer safety.

Metals in the Vape?

A Risk-Assessment Analysis

Int J Environ Res Public Health 

PMCID: PMC4454963 - PMID: 25988311   

Published online 2015 May 15

 

This information is not New, Just ignored.


Electronic cigarette (EC) use (vaping) is considered much safer than smoking [1,2,3], as ECs do not release combustion chemicals responsible for the health risks of smoking. EC devices are mainly composed of a battery part and an atomizer. The atomizer consists of a chamber usually composed of metals, plastics and/or glass, where the liquid is stored, and an atomizer head consisting of a wick and metal coil which is responsible for the heat delivery to the liquid that is subsequently evaporated. Due to this structure, some metal compounds may be delivered to the aerosol. Studies have reported the presence of metals in EC aerosol, in some cases at levels higher than in tobacco cigarette smoke [4,5]. However, no risk assessment was performed to evaluate the harmful potential from exposure to these metals. The purpose of this study was to examine the potential health risk associated with daily exposure to metals from EC use by comparing the highest levels found in the literature with maximum acceptable exposure limits defined by regulatory authorities.

Results

The most likely source of chromium in Cartridges is chromium-plated materials used in the heating coils (both kanthal and nichrome contain chromium).   

Chromium is used for the manufacturing of several metal alloys such as stainless steel post inside the Cartridge.

CUSTOM PACKAGING

Turn Your Luxury Packaging Ideas into Designs

image21

 Today, most Marijuana packaging design is almost painfully boring. Suppliers often use simple pill bottles or worse, use the same types of bags as beef jerky or trail mix — quick, name a brand of either product!

 Even marijuana oils and edibles tend to come in basic, thrift-store quality glass bottles with nothing that makes the cannabis packaging special. Some joint packaging can be found in boxes or cans, but in general, the pot packaging industry is woefully uninventive.


Pre-Roll Custom Tube Packaging

image22

The features of these tubes are ideal for maintaining the freshness of your product:

  • The shape of paper tubes is naturally resistant to bends and creases.
  • If needed, we can supply cannabis tubes with food grade, oil resistant inner linings.
  • Tubes are easier to store and display, as they are free standing designs.

While paper tubes are functionally and aesthetically better as cannabis packaging, ours give growers and manufacturers a truly standout form of marijuana packaging that shows you are something special, that you have built a brand, a brand people recognize and trust.


What it Means to be Unique with your packaging

image23

 We work with you to build the package that makes the most sense, be it different end options, like rolled edge, flat edge, and plug or tubes with  inserts, ribbons or other packaging add-ons that complement the cannabis product inside. There are one piece tubes, two piece tubes, 3 piece tubes, and even non-cylindrical shapes like triangular and ovular options. 

All of these create a final package that genuinely stands out. Picture it, there’s marijuana product A in a bag, product B in a jar and your product — getting noticed — packaged in a custom tube. 

Tubes are functionally and aesthetically better for cannabis packaging

image24

 For people who think of paper tubing as a cylindrical box for a poster, this aint that! We can customize our tubes with some of the finest design elements available. For example, we can create tubes with elements such as: Foil Stamping, Embossed, Matte/Gloss Finish, Die Cut, PVC Windows, Textures and More. 

Packaging with Custom Tubes

image25

 Buyers will judge your product on your look, your brand and…here’s the key for when retail display matters…your packaging. 

It is the one, immediate visual clue as to the class and excellence of your offering, it gets your product noticed on the shelf. 

If They Don’t See Your Package, Do You Really Exist?

image26

 Not all cannabis is created equal. Each strain has its own characteristics, ranging from mellow relief to racy, energetic effects. Quality pot is a science, and passionate cultivators learn the best ways to hone on that craft — and in California, especially with the passage of Prop. 64, the Adult Use of Marijuana Act (AUMA) — now more than ever, growers need to build their look and brand to stand out in California’s crowded cannabis market!
