When it comes to drugs and supplements, knowing and understanding the details is of utmost importance.
Too many people will swallow pills without understanding what they’re putting in their bodies, whether they’re legal or illegal substances.
You never believe if a product that hasn’t gone through FDA approval is safe or not, so doing your research is critical. I remember drinking a bunch of Kava root drinks in college before a buddy of mine did more research on the plant. Despite having a long history of indigenous use among cultures in the pacific islands, studies have shown varying levels of liver toxicity buddyd with Kava depending on what part of the plant is harvested. Since you can’t be 100% sure if you’re getting an extract made from just the leaves, the seeds, or both, you could be rolling the dice and have no idea whatsoever. I have a buddy who is obsessed with fitness and athletics and she was taking a supplement that was similar to anabolic steroids and she didn’t find out until a buddy of her saw the bottle sitting on her family room counter a single afternoon. Thankfully you don’t need to worry about toxic side effects from legal cannabis products in states with narrow regulations on lab testing, but it’s still important to learn the labels so you believe what sort of dose you’re exposing yourself to. Cannabis concentrates have a lot more THC in them than cannabis flower products, so it’s important that you’re aware of what you’re consuming before you try a new cannabis product for the first time.
