VAPORIZING MEDICAL MARIJUANA
Vaporizing is the process of releasing marijuana’s active ingredients in a gas form. It is done with a vaporizer, this heats the cannabis up without any combustion causing the cannabinoids to be released into the air without any of the disadvantages of smoke.The main advantage of using a vaporizer to administer your medical marijuana is that it is a much healthier option then smoking. It contains none of the tar and carbon monoxide. This method also has next to no carcinogens in. In fact, vaporized gas consist of 95% cannabinoids. The remaining 5% is mainly caryophyllene, an oil naturally found in many plants. Cannabis smoke is made of 88% non-cannabinoids, a big emphasis on the non. So when you vaporize you are getting a much cleaner, pure experience. In fact, cannabinoids are highly combustible, meaning you loose quite a lot of them when you smoke you medication.
The relief felt when vaporizing can be comparatively different to smoking as a result of this purer cannabinoid content. It eventually comes down to the personal preference of the patient whether this is a good thing or not, they may have felt smoking better relieved their symptoms, even though it is a less pure form of medication. Good quality vaporizers can also be quite expensive, putting many people off.
