When you first begin vaping wax concentrates or cannabis oils, the doses can be a bit complicated.

Wax concentrate vaping is incredibly convenient, because it is essentially almost odorless and you often times need to vape very little to get you very high. That is because these little tubes are filled up with high percentages of extracted THC.

    This is a terrible idea to come on here and convince people to do such a thing. These things are ruining our kids. Not indicating the actual side effects of these oils/smoke going through the lungs of the younger generation is ridiculous. I am so against this and don’t agree to you trying to get people to do it. Ugh…
