Thank you for your interest in our products. We really appreciate patients who take the time in understanding exactly what is in their medication. Diamond Vape Inc. has always been committed to purity, consistency, and balance. This philosophy is reflected in every product while only sourcing the finest organic ingredients and pharmaceutical-grade ingredients for use in our formulations.
Polyethylene Glycol or PEG is commonly misunderstood as it is used in a wide range of applications both in the industrial chemical and pharmaceutical industries. The difference in their applications is fully dependent on the molecular weight, which range from 100 to 8,000. Our Diamond Vape Cartridges use PEG 400.
Why PEG 400? Chemists have discovered that Polyethylene Glycol with a molecular weight of 400 has the ideal solubility and viscosity for use in personal vaporizers where temperatures often exceed 300 degrees Fahrenheit. It is used to thin the herbal formulations, enabling them to heat quicker and turn into vapor faster. You experience that as a satisfying hit after you draw on a Diamond Vape. It’s proven to be the “sweet spot” for personal vaporizers.
Confusion stems from the fact that pharmaceutical-grade polyethylene glycol can be easily mistaken for ethylene glycol – an industrial-grade chemical used in antifreeze that’s altogether different in molecular weight, structure, and toxicity. Implying that pharmaceutical grade polyethylene glycol is the same substance as industrial grade ethylene glycol would be similar to saying that “elephantitis” is the same thing as “elephants.”
The same pharmaceutical-grade PEG 400 is widely used for medical applications including soft-gel capsules and infant inhalers. It’s been shown to prevent rejection of transplanted organs and it smooths the introduction of titanium rods into the body when repairing broken bones. Additionally, while we’re not going to tell you that it’s a perfect institution, the FDA has fully endorsed this level of PEG as a GRAS ― Generally Regarded As Safe ― substance. “Generally” means that if you or your dog lapped up a bowlful of this stuff, unpleasant consequences could occur. However, under normal operating conditions ― taking a few puffs from a personal vaporizer ― not only are our oil cartridges perfectly safe, they’re the preferred delivery system for tens of thousands of customers seeking the maximum medicinal benefits from active cannabinoids. Our patient list includes umpteen cancer patients supremely conscious of every last molecule they put into their bodies.
But don’t just take our word for it; the safety of PEG 400 in personal vaporizers is supported by numerous studies…
