Vaporization the Healthier Inhalation


Smoking any substance has its own niche hazards and health repercussions, mainly impacting the vitality of your lungs and heart. Anyway that you can mitigate the negative effects of traditional smoke inhalation should be seriously considered, especially when smoking is used to treat other symptoms. For medical marijuana users, using instruments of health, like vaporizers, help patients get the cannabinoids they need while avoiding the respiratory hazards of smoking by heating the cannabis to a temperature where therapeutically active cannabinoid vapors are produced, but heated just below the point where noxious byproducts are formed (Journal of Cannabis Therapeutics, Volume 4, Issue 1).

Vaporization is possible through a few different methods, the two most popular methods being a convection device, such as a volcano, or through the use of an oil vape-pen, such as the Dr. Dabber. By precisely heating the product to safe temperatures, the latest digital vaporizers have the ability to extract the medicinal qualities out of medical marijuana flower without combusting the material.

If you have chosen medical marijuana as a safer venue to medicate, then the last thing you want is to create and inhale noxious byproducts that are known to be more common when using a glass pipe or a rolled joint.

When you use a vaporizer (depending on the vaporizer) a cool smokeless vapor will be created, as opposed to the hot burning smoke cloud caused by using a lighter or matches. The vapor is cleaner and because of the precise heating of the flower, contains the healing active cannabinoids that you need to make you feel your best.

Still not completely convinced? Here are a few benefits of using a vaporizer.

1. No longer will you have the intense smell of burned medical marijuana polluting your air quality (smoke can lead to migraines and can be bad for those with allergies, asthma, and those who have sensitive lungs).

2. Vaporizers filter out the majority of toxins caused by traditional smoking.

3. More medicine for your money; vaporizers utilize all of the medicinal elements of marijuana, allowing you sufficient relief without needing to use as much medicine.

4. Using a vape-pen is more discreet and has less of a chance to cause any unnecessary attention from those who are influenced by their stigmas against medicinal marijuana.

5. You won’t have to deal with the thick resinous material clogging your pipes that is caused by traditional smoking.

More studies are needed to be done to show exactly how much safer it is to use a vaporizer for Montana medical marijuana, however the benefits of not having to inhale combustible materials into the lungs remains an important factor. Mitch Zeller, the United States Food and Drug Administration’s director of the center for tobacco said in 2014, “If we could get all of those people [fusion_builder_container hundred_percent=”yes” overflow=”visible”][fusion_builder_row][fusion_builder_column type=”1_1″ background_position=”left top” background_color=”” border_size=”” border_color=”” border_style=”solid” spacing=”yes” background_image=”” background_repeat=”no-repeat” padding=”” margin_top=”0px” margin_bottom=”0px” class=”” id=”” animation_type=”” animation_speed=”0.3″ animation_direction=”left” hide_on_mobile=”no” center_content=”no” min_height=”none”][who smoke] to completely switch all of their cigarettes to non-combustible cigarettes, it would be good for public health.”
