Vapourizing vs Smoking
Vapourizing vs Dabbing
“Cannabis that has undergone a process to concentrate one or more active cannabinoids, thereby increasing the product’s potency. Resin from granular trichomes from a cannabis plant is a concentrate for purposes of this division. A cannabis concentrate is not considered food.”
As the definition suggests, cannabis concentrates are of exceptional potency when compared to their flower counterpart. Wax and shatter often exceed 70% THC; distillate can breach 90% or more. Oil cartridges usually range between 70%-80%, whereas flower is typically no more than 30%.
Many strains average around 20% THC in legal marijuana markets.
Cannabis Use - Harm Reduction
WARNING: The smoke from cannabis is harmful. Toxic and carcinogenic chemicals found in tobacco smoke such as polyaromatic hydrocarbons, aromatic amines, and N-heterocyclics are also found in cannabis smoke.
WARNING: Do not use if pregnant or breastfeeding. Substances in cannabis are transferred from the mother to child and can harm your baby.
WARNING: Do not drive or operate heavy equipment after using cannabis. Cannabis can cause drowsiness and impair your ability to concentrate and make quick decisions.
WARNING: Frequent and prolonged use of cannabis containing THC can contribute to mental health problems over time. Daily or near-daily use increases the risk of dependence and may bring on or worsen disorders related to anxiety and depression.
WARNING: Adolescents and young adults are at greater risk of harms from cannabis. Daily or neardaily use over a prolonged period of time can harm brain development and function.
