e) The high potency of wax has been shown to increase the risk of accidental overdose. In addition, the hallucinogenic effects of the drug have been linked to paranoia, psychosis and hallucinations that can last for days. The short-term effects of using wax include problems with attention and memory, distorted perception, poor judgment, and poor coordination. 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.
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. 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.
