E cigarette implies the nicotine variety although the article mentions the THC variety. Which one was it?

According to KPRC News it was THC in case anyone else was wondering.

Kelly, E cigarette are not like they use to be. It is hard to keep up with the changes.

October 07, 2019 01:26 pm News Staff – The CDC said the latest findings from its investigation into lung injury associated with e-cigarette use, or vaping, indicate that among cases for which information on substances used in these products was available, tetrahydrocannabinol-containing products (or a combination of THC- and nicotine-containing products) were used by more than three-quarters of people affected by the outbreak.

Specifically, patients with cases of lung injury associated with vaping had

a history of e-cigarette use or "dabbing" (i.e., vaping concentrated marijuana) within 90 days before symptom onset;

imaging studies that showed lung injury;

no evidence of infection (confirmed cases) or infection not thought to be the sole cause of the lung injury or infectious disease testing not performed (probable cases); and an absence of alternative plausible diagnoses
