There is a new version of marijuana that is very dangerous. The new trend call dabbing involves vaporizing marijuana. The reason this trend is so dangerous is because it contains four times more THC than regular marijuana. This dangerous new trend was discussed on “The Doctors.” This marijuana is created by heating an oily concentrate with a blow torch. This creates a large amount of smoke.
One of the reasons that people dab is because it gives them a high that is more intense than the one that they would get if they would just smoke the marijuana. Dr. David Sack is a physician and drug expert. He has stated that dabbing would give one a high that is equivalent to smoking five joints. A high that would normally take hours to achieve can be achieved in just five seconds.
Dabbing can lead to paranoia, rapid heartbeat, hallucinations, anxiety and psychosis. Not only is dabbing a health concern, but it is also a safety concern. Butane, which is a flammable substance, is used in this drug. This has lead to numerous burn accidents and fires. Dr. Sack believes that parents should talk to their children about the dangers of this drug.
