Thread: 'Dabbing' is the 'crack-cocaine' of marijuana

    Default 'Dabbing' is the 'crack-cocaine' of marijuana

    Butane hash oil, a potent marijuana concentrate, is gaining popularity.

    So why does this new method of ingestion split the pro-pot community?



    Butane hash oil (BHO)—also known as dabs, honey oil, wax, oil, shatter, or budder—is a potent marijuana concentrate that can exceed 80% THC content. Growing in popularity in recent years, BHO is hailed by some as “the future of cannabis” while others fear it could harm the image of the legalization movement. "It is very, very potent," Nick, 21, a Physics and Applied Math double-major and avid pot smoker from New York, tells The Fix. "It's like the first time you smoked. Every single time."

    BHO is produced by one of two methods: “open” or “closed." The open method involves packing a stainless steel tube with marijuana and "blasting" the tube with butane (an extraction solvent). The resulting extract—a thick, yellow-orange oil—trickles out onto a pan. This method can be dangerous: FEMA reports increasing incidents of explosions across the US caused by clumsy hash oil production attempts. The closed system, a safer method, uses a machine called a butane oil extractor—which is also used to perform oil extraction from botanical herbs like lavender and mint to produce aromatics, infusions, and tinctures. Consuming BHO is known as "dabbing," and usually involves the user touching the concentrate onto a heated surface (like a nail) and inhaling its vapors. Some dabbing paraphernalia resembles traditional meth or crack pipes, which Nick says could "freak out a lot of parents once dabbing gets huge."

    Could this sort of thing give weed a new bad name? -

    AM-2201 looks like a good cannabinoid. Good catch!

    Wikipedia: AM-2201 acts as a potent but nonselective full agonist for the cannabinoid receptor. It is part of the AM series of cannabinoids discovered by Alexandros Makriyannis at Northeastern University. Reputed recreational use of AM-2201 in the United States has led to it being specifically listed in a proposed 2011 amendment to the Controlled Substances Act, aiming to add a number of synthetic drugs into Schedule I. There have been anecdotal reports of individuals experiencing panic attacks and vomiting, at doses as small as 2 milligrams. As the dosage is much smaller than most other synthetic cannabinoids, users may accidentally dose too much.

    Legally purchase (for now?) -

    There is a growing body of research that indicates some of these synthetic cannabinoids stimulate a healthy-positive growth of brain-cells.

    Well, what can I say? Some good cannabis with beer is always good for a tired brain. And BTW - can you do something about the Internet Explorer on your site? I am really tired of not being able to make paragraphs with my browser.
