Very High, Very Fast: Teens Are Vaping Super-Potent Marijuana and Parents Are Often Clueless



Teenagers are participating in a dangerous trend that’s sweeping the nation. A growing number of America’s youths, even as young as 11 years old, are vaping THC, the ingredient in marijuana that makes a person “high.” The most recent CDC figures available show more than one in five high school seniors vaped THC in 2020, which was a significant increase over prior years, and likely even greater today.

Many parents may know THC is the main psychoactive compound in marijuana but don’t realize vaping it is much more potent than smoking a joint. Unlike typical marijuana cigarettes that contain 10% THC, today’s new THC vaping devices can concentrate it to a staggering 95%.

Nora Volkow, M.D., director of the National Institute on Drug Abuse, told CBN News the high-content THC people are consuming can cause serious mental issues.

    Fear mongering scum run this channel. Your description says a marijuana cigarette contains 10% THC but the vapes teens are using contain 95% THC. You idiots don’t realize that you have to vape the ENTIRE 1g cart in order for the 95% THC to be consumed. Otherwise vaping a few times will be mere fractions of the 95%.

    God made cannabis to be smoked.
    You people will go to the lake of fire for lying about cannabis for the patented drug industry and for corrupt denominational hospitals who make millions off of pain/epilepsy/antidepressant and anxiolytic drugs.
    We all know that this is a lie that you too a bribe to tell. You clearly don’t believe Jesus Christ is God. Indeed, He remains hidden from you because you are very wise and very prudent souls. Who can teach you, you already know what you need to know?

    The real danger is these religious fanatics lying, making stuff up and trying to control the minds of our young people. Stop demonising cannabis and making this nonsense up, it is just fake news.

    The Republicans are on an anti-cannabis propaganda campaign. They are also hateful, racist liars who are finally being called out for it.
    They started a trial and are trying to find a reason to impeach Biden with no current evidence, while also claiming that Trump shouldn't be charged with any of his crimes.
    Hypocrisy at it's finest.
