Before 2010, no one really bought into the idea of vaping. Yes sure, e-cigarettes had broken through the scene, but they were expensive and didn’t really improve the experience. Vaping came through and was a hit!
So much so, that vaper manufactures have transcended into a space that they haven’t before, including weed in their vape juice. Weed vape juice has created a cannabis revolution which is steering users away from the typical rolling, to a more efficient way of enjoying the herb.
THC Vape Juice - What Is It?
To fully explain what the THC Vape Juice is, I’ll break it up into two parts:
- What is THC?
THC in full words is Tetrahydrocannabinol. In simple words, it’s what gets you high. In this case, we’re referring to the liquid concentrate of THC.
- What Is Vape Juice?
Vape Juice or E-Juice is simply a liquid mixture which is used to actually create vapor. It can come in a variety of flavors, such as weed vape juice.
From gathering that information, we can deduce that THC Vape Juice is essentially a liquid that is highly concentrated in THC.
Is THC Vape Juice Legal?
Well, I could say, maybe.
THC Vape Juice is legal in states where weed/marijuana use is legal. Recreational marijuana use is legal in 11 states, whereas medical marijuana is legal in 33 states. It gets even trickier – certain variations of weed are still illegal, states allowing only up to 6 to 12 plants of pot and only allowing users to carry a specified amount on them. Users have to be 21 and older – any public use is illegal.
Does the THC Vape Juice Have Any Effects?
- You Get High, Super Fly:
Since smoking burns the actual plant, there’s an actual threshold for the high you can get. You’re only receiving certain parts of the plant while smoking whereas, with the THC Vape Juice, you get the whole sha-bang.
With vaping, all that you’re doing is inhaling essential oils which contribute to your high. This contributes to you getting higher than ever.
- It's Better for Your Lungs:
When you smoke a joint, you’re inhaling harmful smoke which is detrimental to your lung health. The combustion present releases toxins, carcinogens, and irritants into your precious lungs.
With vaping, this is minimized. Firstly because you aren’t inhaling any smoke, all that you’re inhaling is essential oils (the vape juice). Secondly, no combustion takes place. There’s no burning of anything, so you save your lungs the issue of having to deal with toxins, carcinogens, and irritants.
What Are the Side Effects?
– Use a high concentrated THC vape juice can make you feel as if you haven’t eaten in 10 years.
– Why? Well, THC is a psychoactive drug which activates all different types of parts of your brain, one of them being the place where your appetite is controlled. Highly concentrated can cause you to order everything at Mc Donald’s.
Dry mouth coupled with dry, red eyes:
– Dry eyes occur because the blood pressure is lowered and blood vessels are dilated.
– A dry mouth can occur because of the cannabinol in the THC that causes the saliva receptors in our mouths to produce less saliva.
– These two side effects happen at the same time purely because your body is trying to deal with the high levels of THC in your system.
Where Can You Buy the THC Vape Juice?
A dealer. Jokes.
If you happen to live in a state where the use of recreational and medical marijuana is considered legal, you can get the THC Vape Juice at your local medical pharmacy or drugstore. They are necessarily that difficult to get, so it shouldn’t be much of a hustle.
If you don’t necessarily want to buy it at a physical store, you can just buy one at an online store.
How Does One Decide If Their Dosage Is Too High Or Too Low?
If you’re buying the THC Vape Juice from the store, this is quite easy to deduce. All that you have to do is read! So, on the actual vape juice bottle, it will mention how many drops you should put in the vaporizer. A few drops could have you floating on cloud nine!
If you’re making the THC vapor juice on your own, don’t worry. Unlike a joint, when you’re vaping, you will be able to add little by little until you get the level of THC that you desire.
What I mean by this is that you are able to smoke some, see how it affects you and if you want to, just add more.
How to Make DIY THC Vape Juice
Firstly, you will need the following:
– Weed flower-buds
– Pure USP food-grade vegetable-glycerin
– Baking Sheet
– Aluminum foil
– A working oven
– Two glass jars with a tight sealing-lid
– Stirring wand
– Flexible rubber spatula
– Cheese Cloth or a Cotton Muslin-Bag
-Crush the weed flower buds into smaller pieces using only your hands, so they don’t get too small.
-Take your baking sheet and put the aluminum foil over it. Take the weed flower buds and place them on top of the aluminum foil.
-Place the tray with the flower buds into an oven set to 250 degrees Ferinheight. This allows the THC to be produced. Leave for 30 minutes.
-Take the tray out and let the flower buds cool off for three minutes.
-Take the flower buds and place them into one of the jars with the sealing lid. Vegetable glycerin just enough will create a gooey consistency when stirred.
-After stirring, closed the lid and place in a dry and dark place for 30 days.
-After 30 days, take the jar, stir it and add a fresh batch of vegetable glycerin. Repeat for the next 3 months as frequently as possible for more THC extraction.
-After 60 to 90 days, strain the bottle after stirring. Try to get as much oil as possible.
-Throw away the flower buds and strain the oil through the cheesecloth or cotton muslin bag.
-Use the second jar to store the strained liquid.
There you go! Your very own THC vape juice.
