Don't act like you've never made this comparison. I instantly made that comparison when I first saw dabs. Dr. Andy Mendenhall is an addiction specialist and the in-patient medical director of Hazelden in Beaverton. He talks about dabbing being similar to crack cocaine.
“People are experiencing extreme levels of euphoria and that means that the brains of those individuals are more likely to become attached to those experiences.” - Dr. Mendenhall
Dr. Mendenhall shows more concern with teens and young adults dabbing.
“The use and repeated use of a very strong substance -- that’s creating reward. That’s creating euphoria during a time of brain development. It can’t help but have an effect on long-term mental health." - Dr. Mendenhall
I've had enough with dabbing. It took a toll on me at our Halloween party this past October. I was always a little sketched out about dabs because of the torch and instant high you get. It just didn't seem as natural as light up a joint of flower. Is dabbing the crack cocaine of marijuana?
