This year is defintely the year of the dab. Patients everywhere are putting down their pipes and picking up an ‘oil rig’. Why? Because its very potent and only takes a small amount to get you medicated. The introduction of this started an entirely new fad within the MMJ industry. The scary thing is that this medicine is made with a very powerful butane fuel and can be possibly harmful to the patient as well as anyone who is making this substance. I personally do not ‘ dab’ because there are far too many unknown substances in the wax/oil/concentrate itself… but I do understand why people medicate with it and if we are ever going to get this marijuana legalized in the U.S. we need better regulation on our concentrates before this gets out of hand- WE NEED TESTING!!!!!! I really do not like the idea of people walking around with titanium needles and torches to get medicated – its not a good look for the ‘medical’ side of this and if the mainstream media got a hold of those images I think it would be near impossible to prove that BHO isn’t a drug….
During the High Times Medical Cannabis Cup a few Discussions were had.. One that i truly enjoyed was the “Dab Panel”.. Below, a few quotes from the MMjindustry professionals! More to come! Thank you!!!
“…VECTOR IS VERY VAGUE ABOUT THEIR CHEMICAL BREAKDOWN AND SO ARE MANY OTHER BRANDS.SO AT SOME POINT SOMEONE IS EITHER GONNA HAVE TO GO TO KOREA AND DOCUMENT WHAT THE FUCKS HAPPENING OVER THERE, OR YOU KNOW….THERE’S GONNA NEED TO BE TESTS IN THE STATES- ON THE GAS ITSELF.IF THERE ARE 30 CONCENTRATES ON THE TABLE WE SHOULD BE ABLE TO HAND THEM TO A PHYSICIAN OR A LAB AND THEY SHOULD BE ABLE TO SEE IF IT WAS RAN WITH VECTOR OR ANOTHER BRAND OF FUEL.ID LOVE TO SEE A REAL WAY TO JUDGE THE LEVEL OF CONCENTRATES AND THE CLEANLINESS OF THIS BECAUSE EVEN STANDING OUTSIDE RIGHT NOW, EVERYBODY IS COMING UP TO MY TABLE TRYNA GIVE ME A DAB..ANDYOU KNOW WHAT? THERE IS SOMETHING CALLED BEING POLITE AND ACCEPTING IT BUT IT REALLY IS ACCEPTING A MYSTERY SUBSTANCE GOING INTO YOUR BODY. “– DOUGIE FRESH – OWNER AND OPERATOR OF HITMAN GLASS
“FIRST AND FOREMOST I ALWAYS HAVE LIKED THE ICE WATER MYSELF-FOR THE PAST 8 YEARS… BUT I REALIZED THAT WITH ICE WATER I WASTING MY PRECIOUS PLANT MATTER ON IT, SO I WAS LIKE “IT COSTS ME SO MUCH MONEY TO GROW THESE FLOWERS, THERE HAS TO BE A MORE EFFICIENT METHOD..” THIS (BHO) IS WAY MORE EFFECTIVE. YOU ARE GETTING MORE THAN JUST THE TRICHOMES AND STALK YOU ARE GETTING THE OILS TOO. THEY MAY NOT TASTE AS GOOD WHEN THEY WERE IN ICE WATER FORM BUT THEY’RE MORE EFFECTIVE MEDICINALLY FOR ME BECAUSE…THERE’S WAY MORE THAN THC OR CBD THERE IS ALSO THCVA CBG CBGA ALL THESE THINGS WILL DO MORE LIKE THE CBD , MORE MEDICINAL “STUFF” FOR US;IM A PATIENT, I DON’T WANNA FEEL PAIN…BUT I ALSO DON’T HAVE TO BE SKY HIGH; I DONT NEED AN 80% CONCENTRATE – ID MUCH RATHER SMOKE A 60% CBD CONCENTRATE !…..BUT AS LONG AS THEY GET ALL THE GAS OUT AND MAKE IT HEALTHY TO SMOKE…ITS GONNA BE EFFECTIVE, PROBABLY ONE OF THE MOST EFFECTIVE WAYS TO MEDICATE. “– VERNON PHILIPS – OWNER AND OPERATOR OF PHILIPSRX
