If you’re trying to measure out a specific dosage of cannabis oil, no tool works as precisely and easily as an oil syringe. However, negative connotations and fears surrounding syringes often result in people adopting less efficient and thorough means of measuring cannabis oil dosages. Much of this comes down to a lack of familiarity, so today we hope to set the record straight on the oil syringe.
Why Use an Oil Syringe?
Whether you’re working with a large or small volume of cannabis oil, there is such a vast variety of oil syringe models on the market that you’ll have no trouble finding one that can accommodate your purposes. Many patients require a very specific dosage of cannabis oil, so most oil syringes have measurement indicators displayed on the side of the body to make the process easier. Oil syringes are also ideal for making sure none of your precious medicine goes to waste. With most dab containers
, harvesting every last drop of oil can be a challenge. An oil syringe employs a plunger that makes the process of getting that last bit of oil much quicker and easier.
Do You Need to Use an Applicator?
In most circumstances, an oil syringe will not come with a metal applicator. Depending on how you’re using your cannabis oil, an applicator may not be necessary. Oils tend to clog metal applicators which can be a hassle, not to mention cost you a bit of your oil. However, some people feel the minor loss of oil is a fair deal for the improved control offered by a metal applicator, especially when working with extremely hot dab nails.
The Premium Quality of a Luer Lock Syringe
Luer lock syringes are particularly adept at precise dispensing of oils as well as ensuring you use every last drop. It all comes down to their innovative design which finds the syringes comprised of connecting parts that remain leak-free. Preventing leaks is vital when working with cannabis oil, so the minute fluid fittings that connect a Luer lock syringe are equally vital to the design’s success. Luer lock mechanics are widely employed in all manner of medical devices but the benefits of the design really stand out when applied to a syringe. Aside from the male/female interlocking pieces that contribute to leak-free transfer of oil, Luer lock syringe models come in medical grade borosilicate glass that is fairly easy to clean when compared to syringes crafted from other materials. You can also find Luer lock syringes with measurements to help you dole out the right portion of oil. The state-of-the-art construction of the Luer lock syringe also makes it airtight which is crucial when working with cannabis oil.
Aversion to Needles
It’s common for people, whether using cannabis oil medically or recreationally, to express a hesitation in using an oil syringe due to negative connotations surrounding the administration of drugs with needles; particularly heroin. Aside from the negative public image of recreational uses of syringes, there’s also common personal fears of needles, whether linked to a drug or not. It’s important to keep in mind that the metal needle so often associated with syringes is not mandatory. As stated above, an oil syringe will typically not include a needle with purchase. A needle is a tool designed to make using a syringe easier. You retain the choice to use your oil syringe without a needle. So, there’s really no reason to fear the oil syringe, especially if you’re opting for needle-free use. Using a syringe is a great way to get the most from your oil supply not to mention the most accurate way to measure a dose. If you’re using Luer lock syringe models, you can also count on a leak-free experience. Many dispensaries actually sell cannabis oil in syringes, so we may see their popular use increase with legalization. With social stigmas associated to syringes being overtaken, it may not be too long before the oil syringe is the widely accepted gold standard for cannabis oil administration.
