Vaping Vs. Smoking Cannabis
Many mature adults are not interested in smoking medical cannabis. Inhaling smoke can be harsh and may irritate a person’s throat and lungs. Coughing is not an uncommon response even among experienced cannabis consumers, and for those people with asthma or other lung diseases, smoking is a non-starter. Smoking is also a very public announcement of cannabis consumption as it generates residual smoke and the legendary cannabis odor, described by many as a “skunky smell.” It definitely does not endear you to your neighbors, family, or a person sitting next to you on a park bench.
Battery-operated vaping devices are a relatively new consumption method and are typically used with cannabis oil or wax extracts to inhale vapor instead of smoke. They can also be used with cannabis plant material, commonly known as “flower.” When used with flower, vapes provide enough heat to create vapor but are not hot enough to actually combust the flower and produce smoke. Cannabis oil, on the other hand, is the sticky, thick substance that can be extracted from the cannabis plant. When extracted and processed properly, the oil contains cannabinoids such as CBD and THC, terpenes, and other “full-spectrum” compounds derived from using the whole plant. This is also referred to as the “Entourage – aka Ensemble – Effect.” Cannabis oil can be placed in pre-filled vape cartridges for use in portable pens, larger handhelds, tabletop vapes, or squeezable applicators for use with food or beverages. Over the last year or so, they have become more popular than using flower. When vaping, a heating element heats the cannabis oil to vaporize it in the pen. You inhale high-quality oil vapor, receiving all of the compounds found in the plant without the harsh effects of smoking. When you exhale, no one will accuse you of the skunkiness found in traditional cannabis smoke. Read more about Smoking Vs. Vaping in a new article next week.
Cannabis oil is by its very nature more concentrated than the compounds naturally found in a cannabis plant. As a result, any impurities in the oil itself or potential chemicals used in the extraction process are magnified. This must be taken into account, especially for medicinal patients. This is one reason why we’re so excited to partner with the people at HONEY®. They do not use artificial ingredients or chemical fillers such as glycerin or polyethylene glycol during the oil extraction process. Their disposable, pre-filled vape pens are designed for discerning, adult cannabis consumers who desire the best flavor, aroma and most active phytochemicals of the natural plant offering the medicinal benefits of cannabis without smoking. Most importantly, HONEY’s disposable pen is ideal for new cannabis users since it offers microdosing — very small doses which gently alter the mental and/or physical state.
While making the switch to vaping is fairly simple, finding the right match for your personal preference may take a bit more time. First, you’ll want to consider the importance of strain-specific oils. Many patients rely on the predictable results they experience from a certain strain. For some, a strain such as Sour Diesel may provide a calming, yet uplifting sensation that works well for depression, pain, stress, and anxiety. Other people may prefer the relaxing effects of an OG Kush for their muscle spasms. Whatever your requirements, strain and dosage-specific pens and cartridges are an excellent way to conveniently get the medicine you need when you need it.
HONEY® has developed a reputation as a pioneer, industry-leader, and compassionate cannabis provider. We welcome them to the Three Wells community with open arms.
