Marijuana Vaporizer Health Benefits

inhaler Inhaling marijuana smoke is the fastest route to the blood stream. Research shows that inhaling marijuana smoke causes more harm to the lungs. Studies conducted in Australia show that 95% of the THC in marijuana is absorbed in the first few seconds of inhaling. Holding the smoke a little longer permits more tar and other harmful chemicals to be absorbed. Irritation of the throat and the lungs is one of the leading adverse effects that a marijuana smoker experiences with such process. Because of this, researches have found a way to turn around things. It is found that through vaporization, adverse effects of smoking marijuana will be reduced if not totally eliminated.

Vaporization is a technique that can be used in order to avoid irritating respiratory toxins present in marijuana smoke to be inhaled. Through a vaporizer, the cannabis is heated and not burnt, releasing the THC as vapor which is the one that is inhaled rather than smoke. Laboratory studies by California NORML and MAPS have justified how vaporizes can efficiently transport cannabinoids without the risk of inhaling harmful toxins. These toxins that are present in marijuana are highly carcinogenic polynuclear aromatic hydrocarbons, which are key suspects in cigarette-related cancers. The act of burning the drug causes the release of these toxins as byproduct. Statistics show that although the correlation between marijuana and cancer has not been established, it can’t be denied that marijuana smoking has resulted to an elevated risk of bronchitis and respiratory infections.

With the promise of cannabis vaporizers, users may now inhale active cannabinoids while avoiding harmful smoke toxins. Vaporizers heat cannabis to a temperature of 180 – 200°C, translating that it is not fully combusted and no smoke is produced. With such, THC and other medically active cannabinoids are emitted with reduced, if not totally eliminated, carcinogenic tars and noxious gases found in smoke. Vaporizers have been actually tested by some medical marijuana patients and have found that it is very effective to relieve irritation. There are also other alternatives to vaporizers such as water pipes. But vaporizers are by far the most effective out there.

Hi Kevin,

Vaporizing is the healthiest form of consuming medical marijuana – due to it not burning the plant, and just extracting the THC content via heat.

What type of vaporizer do you have? It could possibly be the quality of the tool that you are using that may be causing the health issues…

For the marijuana itself, if the plant wasn’t properly flushed of whatever nutrients that were used to grow the plant – you would experience the taste of these chemicals (natural or not), when you consume the vaporized contents. If you are purchasing this from a medical facility – ask them if their plants are grown organically or if they even know what type of nutrients or additional chemicals may be used (pesticides).

I have used a vaporizer for 3+ years and have stuck to one brand, which I personally feel provides the best extraction and health options. It is a Vapolution Vaporizer, has been a great device for myself with glass on glass construction and built in USA.

Please let us know what your medical marijuana supplier advises as far as the quality of the product they distribute – this could be the cause of the health issues you are facing, while trying to extract the THC contents.

I am seriously looking for answers about the vaporizer method of smoking Marijuana. I started smoking med marijuana at the beginning of the year and was looking for a healthier way to inhale it, so I tried the vaporizer method for about two weeks. I have had nothing but problems with a sore throat loosing my voice and wheezing in my lungs every since. I am wondering if the marijuana itself doesn’t cause the throat and lung irritation and wheezing, if the growing chemicals that are sprayed on the plants are being vaporized and causing this problem. I’m not sure what is sprayed onto the plants to promote a better yield but I’m looking for some answers.
