Vaping Medical Marijuana

Is vaping medical marijuana a viable option for legal patients? Vaporizing and vaping are interchangeable terms. This term refers to the process of heating dried cannabis flower or concentrates to a temperature below the combustion point. Typically, this means roughly 350°F to 440°F. Doing so releases the desired cannabinoids and terpenes. However, harmful tar, carbon monoxide and other byproducts which come with combustion are not created.

Igniting cannabis in a joint or a pipe heats the material and smoke up to a high temperature. This can be harsh on the lungs (hence, the coughing). Vaping heats cannabis oil and flower at much lower temperatures. Thus, releasing the active ingredients into a fine vapor mist.

Research shows cannabis smoke is less toxic than cigarette smoke. But, it can still cause lung irritation and respiratory distress—particularly in immunocompromised patients. Burning cannabis produces over 100 chemicals and compounds, several of them known to be toxic.

The effects of vaping cannabis are similar to those of smoking, with similar onset time and duration. Many patients feel vaping is a healthier option for them. Vaping doesn’t ignite the cannabis material, and thus, releases no smoke or carcinogens. That means many potentially harmful respiratory effects from smoking cannabis can be avoided.

Does Vaping Medical Marijuana Have Benefits Compared to Smoking?

Research on vaping health risks has found people who use vaporizers report fewer respiratory problems than those who smoke cannabis. The health benefits of vaping cannabinoids can be especially significant for medical cannabis patients. They often consume more cannabis on a regular basis than casual or recreational users for relief of their symptoms.

Vaping also provides the added benefit of producing a virtually odorless vapor. That means it can be done discreetly and without lingering smells.

MMJ Vape Tech

All vaporizers have a heating source and a delivery system. However, there are numerous styles of vaporizers on the market today. Popular iterations include:

  • Stationary tabletop models,
  • Boxy portable vaporizers, and
  • Pen-style vapes.

Many people find pen vapes with pre-filled cartridges of high-quality oil distillates. The Clear makes these. We feel they are the easiest types of vaporizers to use. The Clear product line features the cleanest and purest THC and CBD products on the market. Quality pen vapes are highly effective and discreet. They’re also the easiest for using on the go.

Pre-loaded vape pens also allow for precise dosing, which is particularly important for patients who are new to concentrates. Pen vapes give users the ability to control exactly how much or how little they want to consume, without wasting any oil.

Distillates is a highly pure form of cannabis oil. It offers advantages for medical cannabis patients looking to benefit from cannabinoids without exposing themselves to any impurities.

Many patients prefer vaporizing this type of highly purified oil. Ultimately, because it provides strong, specific cannabinoid and terpene formulations designed to be impactful.

Dab Strain Review: The Clear Concentrate

Dab Strain Review: The Clear Concentrate

The following article contains a review of our concentrate “honey buckets” when they first hit the California cannabis market in 2014.

We no longer sell our honey buckets as of 2021. However, we do use the same clear, solventless distillate concentrate in all of our vape products available today.

The Clear is in the Press

It is an honor to be mentioned by Cannabis Now. They have been reporting on relevant cannabis trends and news for eleven years!

At the time this article was posted, the reporter was not a regular concentrate consumer. Rather, they were a flower consumer. After trying and reviewing our product, they encourage their readers over 21 in legal states to “put aside your prejudices… and try this revolutionary new product.”

There’s a lot that we love about this honorable mention. For instance, the journalist is so honest. He admits that he’s a minimalist with high-brow preferences. This applies to his chocolate, his coffee, and yes, his cannabis. He prefers the simple things to be above-average, and we get that. Being someone who doesn’t consume concentrate, the journalist changed his mind:

“With a single, strategic hit I could thoroughly medicate myself with little of the typical fuss and most importantly, none of the stinging in my lungs or sharp fits of coughing that the typical solvent concentrate delivers. On a nail or in a pen, the Clear is sweet and rich without being overwhelming. The flavors are clear and defined, lingering pleasantly on ones’ palate after consumption. At this point, I’ve tried quite a few of them and can say without hesitation that there’s not a single variety that doesn’t sing as well in my bloodstream as the next… I love them all.”
