The act of dabbing cannabis concentrates, like butane-hash-oil (BHO), has shifted more into the mainstream in recent years, gaining popularity with medical and recreational users alike. This method of delivery provides a heavier, concentrated, dose of the cannabinoids like Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD) that are known to provide relief from chronic pain and stress, in just a single vaporized hit. This means that it is possible to receive more medication with less administration.
Simultaneously, more seniors are realizing the medical and therapeutic benefits that cannabis can provide to ease the burdens of aging. Many people living through their golden years today are choosing to medicate more holistically with a naturally-occurring, growing plant rather than with handfuls of with pharmaceuticals.
That being said, it was only a matter of time before the elderly community would jump, mouth first, into the world of dabs. Many of those in their golden years are pioneers of the cannabis movement in the United States, after-all. In fact, seniors promoting dabs and dabbing has become so mainstream, that there is an entire Instagram account called “Elderly Who Dab” dedicated to showing the world that many seniors seek relief through cannabis therapy.
