What Are Marijuana Concentrates?
How Is It Abused?

One form of abuse occurs orally by infusing marijuana concentrates in various food or drink products; however, smoking remains the most popular form of ingestion by use of water or oil pipes.
A disturbing aspect of this emerging threat is the ingestion of concentrates via electron- ic cigarettes (also known as e-cigarettes) or vaporizers. Many abusers of marijuana concentrates prefer the e-cigarette/vaporizer because it's smokeless, odorless and easy to hide or conceal. The user takes a small amount of marijuana concentrate, referred to as a "dab," then heats the substance using the e-cigarette/vaporizer producing vapors that ensures an instant "high" effect upon the user. Using an e-cigarette/vaporizer to ingest marijuana concentrates is commonly referred to as "dabbing" or "vaping."
Being a highly concentrated form of mari- juana, the effects upon the user may be
more psychologically and physically intense than plant marijuana use. To date, long term effects of marijuana concentrate use are not yet fully known; but, we do know the effects of plant marijuana use. These effects include paranoia, anxiety, panic attacks, and hallucinations. Addition- ally, the use of plant marijuana increases one's heart rate and blood pressure. Plant marijuana users may also experience with- drawal and addiction problems.
A marijuana concentrate is a highly potent THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol) concentrated mass that is most similar in appearance to either honey or butter, which is why it is referred to or known on the street as "honey oil" or "budder."
Marijuana concentrates contain extraordi- narily high THC levels that could range from 40 to 80%. This form of marijuana can be up to four times stronger in THC content than high grade or top shelf mari- juana, which normally measures around 20% THC levels.

Street or "slang" terms change often and vary regionally across the country. Marijua- na concentrates are often referred to as 710 (the word "OIL" flipped and spelled back- wards), wax, ear wax, honey oil, budder, butane hash oil, butane honey oil (BHO), shatter, dabs (dabbing), black glass, and errl.

Many methods are utilized to convert or "manufacture" marijuana into marijuana concentrates. One method is the butane extraction process. This process is particu- larly dangerous because it uses highly flammable butane to extract the THC from the cannabis plant. In this process, shred- ded or ground up plant material is stuffed into a glass, metal, or plastic pipe, with a filter on one end and then the butane is forced in the open end of the pipe. As the butane goes through the pipe, the THC within the plant material is extracted and
