A study published in Nature found that taking THC intravenously can cause schizophrenia like symptoms.
Merry Jane discusses the brief and unhappy history of injecting THC:
- “Basically, folks would boil weed buds into a “broth,” pull that filtered broth up into a syringe, then inject it. Rather than getting lit, they got sick AF instead, which included bouts of vomiting, intense muscle pains, and serious heart problems.”
- Snorting weed isn’t a good idea either: “You’ll end up blowing pot-snot all day and never catching a buzz.”
- A Canadian man who stabbed his mother to death in 2017 after injesting a small amount of cannabis was sentenced to 45 months in prison.
