Here are some things you need to know before using cannabis extracts

Always purchase from a legal source in Washington DC

Some cannabis products are made from complex lab procedures and chemical solvents. Thus you could find some residual solvent left in the final extract. There are also health-related issues associated with chemical formulations that occur upon heating cannabis extracts to high temperatures. Cannabis extracts from licensed dispensaries have the right components verified to ensure that their source is not questionable. In addition, they are regulated and inspected regularly to ensure that they produce quality products that are free from solvents and insecticides. Do not make your cannabis extracts; they can be dangerous; be safe by purchasing from a nearby reputable licensed retailer. 

Read the label carefully

Different cannabis extracts vary not only in their THC concentration but also in their usage. If you use a cannabis product with a higher concentration of THC than what you’re used to, you’ll experience adverse effects. Read the product label carefully and pay attention to the THC and CBD concentration levels in the products. If you are new to cannabis, take time and do some research on the different extracts. You can also ask your friends who have experience in the same products. 

Dabbing is the act of vaping high-strength cannabis products, and this is discouraged for the newbies. First, you have to learn how to inhale, heat the nail to the right temperature, how much cannabis you need to insert into the nail, and how vapors are inhaled. You also need to know how to maintain the dab rig. Again, smoking dried cannabis can allow the effects of dabbing to kick in and can be so much intense. If you’re dabbing for the first time, make sure you do it with a friend who has more experience to guide you.

Effects of high-strength cannabis are instantaneous

There are cannabis products that can have up to 99% THC, which is far much higher than the 25% common in dried cannabis buds. High-strength cannabis can lead to quick, intense intoxication. The symptoms here include vomiting, severe anxiety, and some signs of psychosis. So you have to take precautions when vaping. Take a few minutes to see what happens before you take another puff. If you’re new, avoid high-strength cannabis- begin with the moderate ones, and you can keep increasing the concentration as your body gets used.

Before you begin to use DC weed, it’s essential you take note of the various extracts in the market. Most importantly, buy your products from a reputable dispensary with experienced budtenders to guide you, so you have the best experience.
