Abstract

Cannabis use is steadily rising in the United States. As the popularity of marijuana rises, new varieties of cannabis-related products are becoming available. Dabs are cannabis concentrates gaining notoriety for their significant amounts of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) that are ultimately vaporized and inhaled for their effect. Herein, we provide an overview of recent cases of dabbing to bring awareness to the clinicians, of the significant adverse effects associated with dabs including psychosis, neurotoxicity, and cardiotoxicity.
