It sounds like a crazy question – and no, we did not ask it originally.

A forum thread called blue-light.org tackled this subject, and some surprising responses came about.

Here was the original question – crazy, but interesting:

“Is it possible to breakdown THC(hash or MJ) into a solution that can be injected?If so does anyone know or have personally done this themselves?I’m quite positive it can be broken down to a liquid but thinking perhaps it being so sticky and thick that it would need to be watered down so much you’d need a baseball bat sized syringe to feel anything.
This is just a question out of strictly curiosity because I don’t use MJ much anymore and it’s something I remember wondering 15 years ago.Any help with this would be greatly appreciated!”

 

Best Response:

“Yes, in theory it is possible, hydroxypropyl-beta-cyclodextrin and hydroxypropyl-methylcellulose could help you out here, they increase thc’s water solubility roughly a thousand-fold. Plant matter has got to be filtered out first, doing a butane extraction leaves you with the purest product.. There is a way to turn hash oil into thc only, but this requires some lab materials.

This shouldn’t be carried out if you’re asking yourself if it’s possible, only with the proper equipment you could go ahead and try.. Still not advisable though.

There’s also pharmaceutically made THC that’s water soluble, so also injectable. And no, that’s not marinol.. “

  1. My son tried this and ended up on life support. Died 2 weeks later. This is not something to be joked about.
    There are people out there who will try these types of things that they find on here and in those forum threads.
    My family is devastated. We will never get him back. Please DO NOT ever inject anything into your bloodstream.
