UC policy prohibits possession and use of marijuana on campus, even with a California medical marijuana card.
The effects of marijuana vary from person to person and depend on many factors, including:
The effects of smoking and eating marijuana are quite different. Essentially, eating it results in a more intense and longer-lasting high. The chart below highlights some main differences.
|Smoking Marijuana||Ingesting Marijuana|
|Approximate time it takes to feel the effects||5-10 minutes||60-120 minutes|
|Length of "high"||3-5 hours||6-10 hours; sometimes longer|
|Drug effects||Depressant||Similar to the effects of psychedelic drugs|
|Ability to control dose||Easier||Difficult|
Butane hash oil (also known as hash oil and honey oil) is a waxy substance that is made using marijuana and butane and has a high concentration of THC (60-90%). The effects of smoking BHO are similar to the effects of using psychedelic drugs. These effects include hallucinations, panic, confusion, paranoia and agitation. Increased doses may cause stronger effects.
More than 400 chemicals have been identified in marijuana, and not all of them occur naturally (i.e. pesticides). Marijuana can also be laced with other drugs including PCP, LSD and crack/cocaine. The more you know about what is in your marijuana and where it came from, the better.
