Give children medical dagga

03 March 2014, 08:04
To decarb or not; that is the question and also rule of thumb when deciding to give medical dagga to children.

First of all get to know your Cannabinoids.

THCA is not active THC.

You can think of THCA as the raw plant. It does not give a high if you eat it as a salad or juice the leafs and buds.

It's only when THCA is heated or burned that it's converted to THC and becomes active.

I have made a non decarboxylated tincture before and I can tell you nobody will be running around goofed off their heads from THCA.

Vegetable glycerine tinctures are great substitute for alcohol based tinctures.

You need to combine at least a trinity of strains for a SUPER medicine, the more the merrier the saying goes.

If one understand the basics of cannabis, which should be mandatory part of education any person could potentially utilize high THCA content cannabis with high ratio CBDA (Which is the precursor of CBD like wise THCA is the precursor to THC) strains, without the psycho-active effects.

The basic rule of thumb would be decide if you require active or non active cannabinoids and then follow or ignore decarboxylation instructions in any recipe whether it's tinctures or oil or edibles or alternatively 50/50 active to non active for a much broader spectrum of cannabinoids...

I would also like to point out, although I have not had personal experience, there are children with serious terminal life hindering diseases or conditions where the active cannabinoids make life altering improvements.

Also being high is not about being goofed off. At least it's not my experience. It frees my mind from mental slavery. It's a medicine for my mind, for the brain & for the soul.

Feeling high is not a confused state of mind but a period of intense clarity, happiness and bliss.

Also I do not condone dagga use by children but as other activist pointed out. Older kids rebel and they will be enticed by prohibition to try dagga or even drink alcohol and smoke tobacco.

While dagga is illegal children have easier access to dagga.

"Would you rather have you kids buy dagga from a stranger or give adults their right to choose dagga over alcohol and tobacco and buy from a responsible "dispensary" or Smart Shop where regulation controls and restrict the sale of dagga to minors like with alcohol." - Buzz

Being high is being responsible.
