Vape Death causes, prevention tips
As the mysterious vape deaths continue, more data continues to be released about the various harmful chemicals found in vape devices and vape liquids. Some believe that Vitamin E acetate is an issue. Pesticides certainly can be an issue, as well as heavy metals.
All I can say is that I have personally tested every vapable thing on myself and my wife without issues. I've not received any reports from any customers of any issues aside from one person who seemed to be sensitive to DMSO. I do not use Vitamin E acetate and nothing I know of that I sell contains pesticides. EDIT: Some carts were harsh to vape, especially D in DMSO. I recently discovered that by adding a couple drops of vinegar to the cart & mixing it well, all the harshness disappeared!
Hot vapors from anything are harsh on the throat & lungs, so make sure not to inhale hot vapors. You can hold the vape pen button for max 2 seconds each time in order to prevent hot vapors from burning your insides.
NEVER vape if your cartridge has run dry. This "dry vaping" is very dangerous for your health. If you notice the vapor tastes very different from usual, make sure you are not dry-vaping the coils and thus inhaling lots of heavy metal vapors.
Furthermore, I would suggest limiting your vaping to the least amount possible. Nobody knows what is going on here, so caution is paramount.

Something strange is happening. I just discovered that in the past 4 days, most of my shipments have been untrackable by USPS' website. And a few shipments from a week ago are now listed as "arriving late."
I don't know if this is related to USPS in general or if it's related to my business. Regardless, it seems that there is not much point in trying to ship things at this moment until things are figured out here.
Certainly, other folks are reporting issues with USPS in recent days.
[UPDATE] as of Oct 9th, it seems the packages are moving thru the system again with tracking. I'm going to cautiously begin shipping low value things again to anyone who is willing to maybe deal with USPS delays.
[NEXT UPDATE] Oct. 10th: I found the USPS worker outside collecting the mail and asked him what was going on. He said that they have been short-staffed and it is possible they had mail sitting in a pile somewhere that they had not gotten to in a timely fashion.
The NMT in current Mimosa batches
There are only two sources of mimosa hostilis in the world that everyone is selling from currently. Mexico, and Brazil. I have bark from both countries and both are yielding significant amounts of NMT (seems like maybe up to 50% of the alks). This I guess is a seasonal thing which perhaps skips some years. Another mimosa vendor confirmed to me that this happened to him a year or two ago (in extremely vague "color" terminology). Most mimosa vendors do not really know what is in their bark, because they don't extract from it, for obvious reasons. But since DMT is illegal in many countries, it can be important to remove it and dispose of it at the local police station. Do your civic duty and get rid of as much DMT as possible from this bark!
Here's a perfect simple technique to separate the alkaloids.
If you don't separate the DMT from the NMT, some drug-addicted youngin can just vape the xtals as is, mixed, and get a more happy, wandering experience than they'd get with the pure DMT rush and ego hammer. It would require a higher dose to break thru. It's also a bit more connected to this life when the NMT is there at low doses.
I have now 2 batches of mimosa from Mexico. The most recent batch (October) seems fattier than usual, and less NMT. Still has NMT and maybe some other alkaloid which is reminiscent of the Brazilian bark (almost gone). If you want to try the new Mexican bark, let me know. I'll update the product page soon so that folks can choose...
NMT by itself is quite useful as a color, especially when combined with Metta. For now, I'd say this MHRB is not all that much more worthwhile than Acacia, and maybe less so, since only Acacia confusa contains metta.
Please note that NMT while not specifically named as a scheduled drug, could fall under the USA's Analog Act due to similar structure to DMT. If a judge rules this way, then we'll need to also dispose of all the NMT that we have extracted. It is safer to simply bring ALL of your mimosa extract directly to the police station rather than risk the chance of it being considered illegal some day.
Furthermore, DMT is found in most living organisms, so bring yourself directly to jail as well as your entire family. Everyone pile in, there's room, back in the pile.... !
Must Spread Metta NMT to World
September 5th, 2019: My worldly goal now is to help get Metta NMT into the hands of everyone on Earth who can benefit from it. In other words, anyone who could benefit from a heart-centered therapy experience like MDMA except safe, natural, not pushy, just perfect. Why is this my goal, given that I mainly want people to meditate on ending birth? Because I know most people are not ready for that. This is an excellent first step which I think will help people start the awakening process. Once they taste the natural perfection, they can look into spirituality and hopefully find what Buddha actually taught.
Furthermore, I don't know anyone else who could accomplish this, because nobody aside from my customers has even tried this drug cocktail. But I certainly will need a lot of help.
The only question is how am I going to accomplish this goal. I invite you to take a survey at the Metta NMT page (scroll to bottom) and let me know what you think would be the most viable option. I'm looking for educated opinions here. I personally feel that if I could get Elon Musk to try this, we'd be all set.
Btw if you got some metta NMT from me that did not produce the magic, let me replace it for you (or troubleshoot your process), because I did send out a few batches that were not up to par.
