Vaping Marijuana for Medicinal Purposes

Last updated on

There is a new vaping trend that has been gaining popularity in recent years. It’s vaping for medicinal purposes. For example, it is possible to vape weed.

Vaporizing, or vaping weed is an alternative way to get your dose of medicine without all the harmful side effects and chemicals found in smoking. A study from Canada already showed that vaping marijuana is preferred over smoking because of the fewer negative health consequences.

In this blog post, we will discuss how vaping can be used as an alternative to smoking and why it should be considered by those who are looking for a way to consume medical marijuana.

Benefits of Vaping Marijuana

To understand the use of vaporizing for medical reasons, let’s quickly see how vaping differs from traditional smoking.

Vaping involves using a vaporizer or vape pen in order to heat up a vaping liquid or dry flowers. The e-liquid or ground cannabis buds are then put into a heating chamber.

Without creating the poisons associated with combustion, vaporizers can heat cannabis to temperatures that release cannabinoids – the beneficial substances produced by cannabis flowers that get you high and offer relief to a variety of ailments including pain, nausea, anxiety, and inflammation – in a fine mist.

When consuming tobacco, the main advantage of vapes over traditional cigarettes is that they do not contain the 4000+ chemicals present in conventional tobacco cigarettes, such as tar, nicotine, arsenic, ammonia, and formaldehyde.

Although, some people like to mix marijuana with tobacco to make it less powerful.

Why Vape Weed?

Whether you’re using cannabis flower, oil or resin for medicinal or recreational purposes, the major hazard of smoking weed is the smoke itself.

Medical marijuana can be ingested using a vaping pen so that you can inhale the THC vapors released by the heating process. It does not involve lighting anything on fire which makes vaping an alternative for those who are looking for ways to quit smoking cigarettes since they contain carcinogens and chemicals that cause cancer. Or if you are a non-smoker and want to take medical marijuana for pain relief or other issues a vaporizer can be a great solution.

Vape pens have become very popular because of their discrete nature making them easier to carry around than traditional joints with papers. The best thing about vaping marijuana compared to smoking is that there isn’t any smoke involved when vaporizing your medicine! This means no more stinky clothes or having people ask you if you’ve been smoking recently.

Moreover vaporizing is less harsh on the body than smoking. Vapors are considerably more pleasant, it’s lighter than smoke and, unlike smoke, doesn’t linger in the airways.

In the end, it is a far more natural, healthier way to take cannabis. However, studies on vaping cannabis are still relatively new given that it is still a recent development.

How to Vape Weed

Medical cannabis can be used either as dry herbs, oil or vaping liquid, this depends on your device and personal preference. You may vape dried cannabis directly if you have a herb or dual vaporizer. If you have an extract-only vaporizer, you’ll need marijuana vape cartridges.

Vaping marijuana is less harmful than smoking it and will not diminish your high. It’s cleaner, more convenient, and healthier than smoking and still gives you the medical treatment you need.
