This new form of super-strength cannabis is hitting the UK - these are the dangers

A brand-new form of super-strength cannabis is hitting the UK.

Police are investigating after the substance - dubbed “cannabis shatter” - hit the North East.


It could spread across the country, it is feared.

Shatter, also known as Butane Hash Oil (BHO), is made by using large amounts of highly flammable butane gas, reports the Chronicle.

That helps strip THC – the active ingredient in cannabis – out of the plant and leaves a glass-like extract that hardens to give the appearance of cooled caramel or honeycomb.

 

It is then broken up into small shards for users to smoke it as they would a cannabis plant.

Drug experts warn that shatter is more potent than cannabis in its traditional form.

They say it is up to 10 times stronger than normal cannabis and can cause long-lasting psychiatric problems.

 

The drug is also found to have more intense negative effects such as drug induced psychosis, anxiety and paranoia.

There are concerns those who produce the drug are putting themselves and others in serious danger.

 

The process to create the substance involves using butane gas to extract THC resin from the plant, which is highly flammable.

 

 

In the US - where the drug has become popular - there has been reports of explosions and house fires after people have tried making it at home.

This has caused serious injuries and in some cases deaths.

Man this is so confusing. 

 

I was never able to get my head around how 'skunk' was more dangerous than a good bit of hash (the kind folk have been smoking for decades without serious risk of having a psychotic breakdown..)

 

I don't know about anyone else but I sure as hell would be more stoned smoking 1G of strong hash compared to smoking 1G of 'skunk'

 

Now shatter has been added into the mix...

 

Just to clarify do I have everything in the correct order of danger?

 

shatter > 'skunk' > 'normal weed' > hash
