Let’s Talk: The Rising Popularity of “Dab Carts”

Marijuana concentrates (also known as “dabs,” THC oil, THC wax, cannabis concentrates) are gaining rapid popularity. More and more young people are vaping them using e-cigarettes and other electronic vaporizers (colloquially referred to as “vape pens” and “dab carts”) as opposed to smoking traditional, herb marijuana.

Vaping is easier for teens as vaping products are easy to conceal. The marijuana concentrates also provide a higher potency than the herb form.

As parents/caregivers, be aware that vaping products look nearly identical to electronic cigarettes, and some e-cigarettes are dually compatible to vape nicotine and THC. Be aware of the signs of use  and open a dialogue with your child about this emerging trend.
