Our Goo Goodness weed oil cartridges come in a 1000mg vial and clocks in at a very impressive THC percentage along with other trace cannabinoids such as CBD, CBN and CBG. This particular variation of their oil is enhanced with naturally infused terpenes and also contains a very high dosage of Cannabinol (CBN) extracted from the source.
The Goo Goodness Cartridges are made from pure cannabis oil with no additives, Vitamin E Acetate, solvents or pesticides. We ensure this by making sure that the products are lab tested and flavoured with natural compounds. The lab test results are down below for your viewing pleasure. This information is also true for the Goo Goodness THC Distillate oil which is also available for purchase.
An easy way of telling if the weed oil has fillers/additives is to look at the bubble in the cartridge. As you will see, the bubble in the Goo Goodness cartridges does not move, a testament to the marijuana oil’s purity and quality.

What could taint the carts?
Consumers have used disposable vaporizer cartridges like the THC vape pen with standard additives—propylene glycol, vegetable glycerin, or medium-chain triglyceride (MCT) oil—for many years. That alone gives regulators pause. Earlier this month, officials at the US Food and Drug Administration proposed adding propylene glycol as a respiratory toxicant to its list of “Harmful and Potentially Harmful Constituents in Tobacco Products.” FDA officials have also proposed regulating all e-cigarette ingredients by 2022.
- Common additives in cannabis oil vape pens, such as Propylene Glycol (PG) and polyethylene glycol (PEG), can result in exposure to harmful carcinogenic compounds when heated and inhaled.
- PEG, PG, and some pesticides degrade into stronger toxins at temperatures that vape pens can reach.
- Many thinning agents and flavoring additives have been safety tested for ingestion and topical application but not for inhalation as heated compounds.
- Avoid vape oil products with with PG, PEG, and flavoring agents that have not been safety tested for heating and inhalation.
A new type of additive started showing up in vape carts in late 2018.
Past lab tests have also caught pesticides, residual solvents, heavy metals, and synthetic cannabinoids in illicit-market cannabis vape carts. Yet we’ve never had clusters of life-threatening lung injuries like we’re seeing this summer.
We don’t know what precipitated the current health crisis. But we do know people used illicit cannabis vape carts last year without ending up in the hospital. So it makes sense to ask: What’s changed recently in the street vape cart market?
New ‘Thick’ cutting agents under scrutiny
Industry insiders who track the legal and illegal vape cart markets closely tell Leafly that a new type of additive started showing up in late 2018, and has since become widely used in underground markets. It’s a novel class of odorless, tasteless thickening agents. These liquids come in different proprietary formulations manufactured by both legal, above-board companies and by shadowy underground operations.
This new additive may or may not play a role in the current health crisis. But it is one of the major new ingredients in illegal vape cart oil in widespread use this summer.
Double-checking cannabis oil
Peter Marcus, communications director for Colorado-based Terrapin Care Station – which also has a retail footprint in Pennsylvania – said his company hasn’t pulled any products off shelves or seen a major downturn in vape cartridge sales, for similar reasons: The company ensures that the cannabis oil in every vape product it sells is pure, uncut marijuana.
“We’re not worried, because we’re fortunate to be a legal, licensed marijuana company that works within (a regulated environment) that prevents products like this from hitting the market,” Marcus said, adding that the company has heard “almost nothing” from consumers who may have worries about the vaping illness outbreak.
“When you have regulatory boards having oversight for products that hit the market, you’re not going to end up with bootleg, cut vape cartridges that have the potential to cause harm,” Marcus said.
“The way I’m looking at it is, this is yet another example that strengthens the case for federal standards.”
Terrapin, like Cresco and others, has also been active on social media regarding the outbreak, re-emphasizing with customers that the vape cartridges it sells are pure cannabis oil minus any extra additives.
“Our vaporizer cartridges are always 100% cannabis derived. No cutting agents, no additives, no vitamin E. Just cannabis distillate and cannabis derived terpenes,” Terrapin wrote on its Facebook account on Sept. 6.
Morgan Fox, spokesman for the National Cannabis Industry Association, said the organization had heard concerns from its retail members about possible business impacts from the outbreak and resulting headlines nationwide, but said he thinks most news stories have been clear that the problem is most likely caused by the illegal underground market and not state-legal marijuana companies.
“We’re definitely hearing concern from members, and I think that’s partially driven by legitimate concern for cannabis consumers and their health, but also a potential worry that the public’s fear will not necessarily recognize that these illnesses are being caused almost entirely by illicit, unregulated market products,” Fox said.
“Luckily, most of the coverage I’ve seen so far has been very clear to point out that regulated, state-legal cannabis products are not at fault here. But I think it’s going to create an impetus for regulated producers to really make sure that consumers know that their products are as safe as possible and regulated and tested.”
