Patients always ask me what are the most common methods to receiving medical marijuana and my answer is Vaporizing or “vaping”. Cannabis has gained its popularity recently, especially in Florida where the actual flower or “bud” is not yet available.
So what exactly is vaporizing?
Vaping is the heating of cannabis without burning the substance inside. The heat releases the active ingredients into a vapor that is then released into the air in a fine mist created by a vaporizer device. Since combustion does not occur, smoke is not created. Vaporizer products also vary in size and functionality.
The Benefits of Cannabis Vaporization
Vaporizers produce a more clear-headed high because smoke is not inhaled, but there are few studies that research whether vaping and smoking definitely create different types of highs. Vaping is great for new patients and consumers because the vapor can be inhaled in short puffs rather than deep breaths like you would experience with actually smoking a joint. Additionally, patients appreciate the added benefit that it is more discreet to use a vaporizer and there is minimal to no smell.
Vaping is becoming more and more popular amongst patients and users alike. Vaping gives users an adequate high without the harsh chemicals or smoke. The added bonus is the numerous different types of vaporizers available to users, whether it’s the extracted oil or the actual flower being vaporized. It is more crucial than ever to encourage continued experimental research about vaporizing as a cannabis delivery method.
