After seeing the shockingly positive impact of medical marijuana on a close member of his family, Alex took an interest in writing about cannabis. He soon shifted his focus to cannabis content, of which he has been writing for the past three years.
Vaporizing THC Oil
You can only use vape THC oil with vape pens. If you don’t have one yet, then here are some tips for choosing a vape pen:
- Vape pens specifically designed for oils automatically use the correct wattage. Best of all, they easily cost less than $20.00.
- E-cigarettes or large “box mods” with interchangeable tanks (atomizers) can also be used; however, oil atomizers are different than ones for e-liquid. Also, make sure to use the proper wattage (the exact wattage will be outlined in the instructions).
- Choose your vape THC oil wisely. Waxy oil is preferable since it’s more potent and additive-free. Thin oil, on the other hand, may have propylene glycol and artificial flavoring in it.
Red Flags – Avoid THC Scammers
Unscrupulous THC oil providers exist in abundance. They may offer “medical” products, but there is no way to verify quality. The best way to ensure safety is to stick with a licensed medical cannabis distributor. Due to strict regulations, even the worst licensed provider is better than the “best” independent business.
Within the realm of legitimate providers, it is important to still examine the following:
- Packaging label: Know the cannabinoid profile, their concentration or percentage, other cannabinoids and terpenes, and lab test certificate. Is it pure and natural, or are there any potentially harmful chemicals added to it? Does the label state that it’s free from microbes and other contaminants?
- Reason: Why are you going to use THC oil? Different terpenes provide specific medical benefits. Know each one to create a custom experience that suits your needs.
- Reviews: Always read THC oil reviews before buying. We will make a comparison list of the RSO oils we know are excellent. Rest assured that we’ll check their lab test certificates, product labels, product prices and even company reputation for you.
Choose your THC oils wisely. Make sure that they are lab-tested and have the certificate to prove it. High-quality cannabis oils are free from pesticides, solvents, mold and any other contaminants like microbes.
THC Oils for pets
Tetrahydrocannabinol helps to control medical conditions in cats and dogs, but too much can be dangerous. Make sure that the oil being used is very low in THC and they’ll be safe. When used properly, THC oils will give pets the same relief from conditions like pain, inflammation, gastrointestinal issues, and seizures.
THC is nontoxic to the liver and kidneys. There may be some side effects, but with proper dosing, the side effects are well-tolerated by pets.
Dealing with Cannabis Oil Side Effects
If you think you’ve had too much cannabis oil, don’t panic. The side effects will fade away soon.
Here are some ways to deal with THC side effects:
- Stay calm. Concentrate on your breathing and relax.
- Have some snacks and drink a sugary drink. This will help restore the drop in your sugar level.
- Drinking fluid will help relieve your dry, cotton-mouth symptom.
- If you’re feeling dizzy, rest. Better still, try to sleep it off.
THC is nontoxic, and there is no lethal overdose level. In 1988 the US DOJ published, “Opinion and recommended Ruling”, Part VIII “Accepted Safety for the use of medical marijuana under medical supervision”. Judge Francis L. Young concluded that one would have to consume an improbable amount of 1,500 pounds of cannabis within fifteen minutes for cannabis to be lethal. No normal person can do that.
The side effects may seem unpleasant at first, especially if you are a first-time cannabis oil user. But these are well-tolerated and fade away in time as your body adjusts to the presence of THC.
