The Ohio Department of Health and local health departments are investigating reports of severe lung disease among people who reported recent vaping. Currently, there are no known links to a specific type of product. Vaping products contain many substances and may include nicotine, tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), synthetic cannabinoids, or a combination of these.
Anyone who thinks that they may be experiencing serious breathing problems linked to vaping should seek immediate medical attention. If you are a healthcare provider and wish to report a possible case, please contact your local health department. (Click here to locate a local health department.)
Information about resources to help people quit smoking and vaping are available on the cessation page of the ODH website, including the Ohio Tobacco Quit Line (1-800-QUIT-NOW).
