Marijuana Vaporization

Medical marijuana vaporizers used with cannabis oils are very popular and probably most prescribed among the medical marijuana community. However, vaporizers have become just as popular for those who use flower marijuana where is has become legal. Vaping has proven to be a much healthier method of using marijuana as compared to smoking a pipe or joint.

You may be totally surprised at the choices when trying to pick the best vaporizer for medical marijuana consumption. However, they all work basically the same by heating the marijuana or cannabis extract at a cooler temperature (usually 200-400 degrees), than required burning combustion. At these lower temperatures, just the active ingredients like (THC-CBD), will turn to vapor without all the bad ingredients that come with combustion.

End result is a clean vapor to inhale without all the harmful chemicals found in whatever you are smoking. You see, burning marijuana can release harmful by-products that can lead to respiratory problems to some individuals. Vaping marijuana is a cleaner high (clear headed), and brings out the true taste of the strain you vape. Whether your vaping cannabis oils, concentrates, or dry flower, patients have found vaporizers to be the most efficient method for marijuana intake.

Cannabis Concentrates

Medicinal cannabis extracts have all the relaxing and healing effects of flower marijuana in a more pure concentrated oil, pill, herbal tincture, or solid form. So, what are cannabis concentrates? Simply put, cannabis concentrates are the extracted amounts of a psychoactive compound called tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), and a multiple of other cannabinoids like (CBD), and terpenes. Some of the first known uses of cannabis concentrates date back to 10,000 B.C., in the Steppe mountains of China. Other use of concentrates originated in Eastern Asia. They would rub off tricomes from the cannabis plant and compress them into a molded form know as Charas (Hindi word for hashish). During the 12th century, smoking "Hashish," was very popular in the Middle East.

 Well, we have come a long way from eating and smoking hash balls in today's world of concentrates. At your local dispensary you will find a variety of different concentrates with names such as: Honey oil, RSO, BHO, CO2, Distillates, rosin, resin, badder, wax, shatter, crumble, tinctures, creams, and capsules. Don't be overwhelmed with all the different kinds of concentrates, many are just different names for the same thing. One thing you want to keep in mind about concentrates is that they are stronger than flower bud.

Consuming Concentrates

Vaporizers have become very popular among the medical marijuana community and is the healthiest method for inhaling concentrates. You can vaporize almost any form of concentrates, excluding tinctures, creams and edibles. Disposable vape pens and cartridge vaporizers have become the most popular and easy to use. There are many different varieties of vape pens and vaporizers, so ask your dispensary bud tender to help you decide on what is best for you.

Edibles & Tinctures

Edibles and tinctures are made using different extraction processes involved in the production of concentrates. Cannabis butter is the most used in marijuana-infused treats, such as cookies, brownies, candies, and chocolate, just to name a few. There are also liquid extracts called tinctures made from the cannabis plant that you simply ad a few drops under the tongue and you will begin to feel the effects.
