Butane Hash Oil and Health Problems
A new study published in Drug and Alcohol Dependence examined the characteristics of Butane Hash Oil (BHO) users and its effects.
Reports suggest a recent increase in BHO use, a very potent form of marijuana concentrate created by burning butane fuel to extract THC from marijuana.
The study consisted of an anonymous online survey of 20 countries.
A key finding of the study was that BHO use was associated with mental health problems and other illicit drug use.
In addition, BHO users reported stronger negative effects and less positive effects compared to those using high potency herbal marijuana.
