CONSIDERING IF THE A DOSE-SAFE CONTROL PEN IS A “SAFER WAY” TO CONSUME MARIJUANA
- November 22, 2018
No matter what substance you put in a vape pen, smoking will always be terrible for your health. Given the huge trend of e-cigarettes with teenagers, parents now have to be concerned about underage marijuana use thanks to the introduction of weed vape cartridges. Take, for example, the Elixinol X Pen, which offers a controlled spectrum of hemp extract for users. However, when is it time to ask “how much is too much?” Does this product offer a better alternative to smoking marijuana or is it just as dangerous as the e-cigarettes that are plaguing young adults and adults in our society? Let’s take a closer look at these products so you can stay up to speed.
How Is It Used?
Much like the e-cigarette, the Elixinol X Pen is a dose-controlled product that regulates how much of a mind-altering substance you consume and contains “full marks” to let you know how much has been loaded. After releasing 15 milligrams of hemp extract, the user has to wait for a period of 15 to 20 seconds before consuming the drug. Unlike the e-cigarette, the cartridge does not have to be heated, and the dose can be regulated by the user.
Effects of the Pen Oil
Overall, the X Pen contains portions of CBD and hemp oil, so it does not provide the debilitating psychoactive effects of THC. Typically, patients can use this pen to alleviate stress or insomnia, and some members of the cannabis community have also argued that his device can be used as a form of pain management, given the positive psychoactive effects of cannabidiol.
In part, the X Pen contains 66 15 mg doses of hemp oil (full spectrum), for a combined dosage of 1000 milligrams. Some reviewers have compared the flavor to mint, similar to the cartridges produced by e-cigarette companies currently on the market.
Overall, while the X Pen does not deliver a nasty string of toxins like e-cigarettes, keep in mind that it still contains substances that could potentially be harmful to younger children and teens. After all, studies have shown that marijuana is more detrimental to teenage brains than alcohol.
