Smoking marijuana can be addictive and have unpleasant side effects. The higher concentration of THC in the wax may exacerbate these side effects in some people. The short-term effects of using wax include problems with attention and memory, distorted perception, poor judgment, and poor coordination. The hazards inherent in the manufacture of wax include the possibility that dangerous butane molecules may be present in the wax.
If you dedicate yourself to recovering in a protected environment like Windward Way Recovery, you'll gain the strength, knowledge and tools needed to deal with all the stressors in your life without using substances such as THC wax. A metal coil is heated with a blowtorch until temperatures reach temperatures high enough to melt the wax and the wax melts in the coil and is inhaled through the pipe. Unfortunately, among the well-made marijuana products available for medical and recreational use, there are many unregulated waxes that have no limits in terms of the concentration of THC or the methods used to create the product. With THC concentrations of up to 90 percent, wax or “dab” is small and easy to hide and is therefore an attractive alternative to flowers, buds or marijuana joints.
