There’s a brand new drug trend that’s presently sweeping the nation and it is overwhelming college campus police force, safety officials and managers. The word for this is “dabbing,” but in a street level it is called marijuana wax, oil or concentrates.
As numerous would expect once they hear the term marijuana, what one thinks of is really a eco-friendly leafy substance that’s smoked via a glass marijuana pipe or perhaps a bong. The very first factor you need to do is have that image, understanding of normal paraphernalia and terms from your mind. This “new” marijuana is totally diverse from anything we’ve worked with previously.
What Exactly Are Marijuana Concentrates?
Marijuana concentrates would be the extracted resins from eco-friendly leafy marijuana, which could enhance the THC content in the standard street level 15% THC to 60-80% THC. Also, concentrates aren’t eco-friendly or leafy. They appear like wax, butter, oil or amber colored glass shards, known as “shatter.”
Watch our photo gallery to determine what marijuana oil, wax & concentrates seem like.
Concentrates are generally extracted using butane (when tell you the dry herbal marijuana buds, it extracts the THC). The watery/waxy THC will be heated to bubble from the butane. Using butane isn’t the best way to create concentrates, but it’s typically the most popular.

Once packaged, the product can easily seem like a little part of wax. Concentrates may also be laced along with other drugs or put in various foods. Clearly, this changes the delivery method and makes identification more discrete.
Using butane, a typical fuel, for extraction, has its own problems. Using butane is responsible for multiple explosions from coast to coast, including one out of a college housing complex close to the College of Montana, in October of 2014. These explosions have wiped out and seriously burned people nationwide. The explosions will also be causing serious structural harm to their home and neighboring qualities.
Dabbing Has Numerous Street Names
This drug passes the monikers “dabs,” “butter,” “budder,” “amber,” “honey,” “oil” or “BHO,” which means “Butane Honey Oil” or “Butane Hash Oil.” Additionally, you will see clothing or fliers using the term “710.” This term is comparable to the road level term of 420, the universal starting time and date to obtain high. Within this situation, 710 may be the word “OIL” switched upside lower, creating a popular drug reference.
Combined with the incredibly high THC, marijuana concentrates possess some non-traditional signs and symptoms. Quite a few users report hallucinations, fainting, extreme highs (even from small portions) and amounts of impairment.
Users Need Advanced Paraphernalia
After allowing the marijuana concentrate, the topic utilizes a more specific bong or pipe, that is known as an “Oil Rig,” to smoke the wax. They may also purchase adapters for the standard bong to really make it functional for dabs. A well known trend is by using a tool that appears just like a standard e-cigarette, specific to concentrates and oils, to be used of numerous marijuana-based products rather of nicotine. These units have electric heating sources and therefore are designed for smoking wax, oil, dry herbal marijuana or shatter. These e-cigarettes are extremely discrete, “stealthy” and could be difficult to identify as drug paraphernalia while postponing hardly any odor.
The “dabbing” movement is very popular, evolving rapidly, and there are various kinds of paraphernalia, terms, logos while focusing types entering our communities. Because this trend’s recognition is constantly on the skyrocket with folks of every age group, we have to still educate ourselves around the dangers and employ of “dabbing”.

mofomartian: So wax is basically thc and natural flower waxes that are extracted using butane and purged by hand mixing? And the way you ingest it is by freebasing?\n\nNevermind the fact that you're blowing out your brain's thc receptors, who the fuck knows what kind of chemicals, sprays or nutrients the butane is extracting from the flower… and now you're gonna smoke a concentrated dose of that by freebasing it in a water pipe?\n\nYou folks go on and enjoy, I'll stick to smoking dank flower.
