Vaporizing Cannabis: A Healthy Alternative for Non-Smokers - March 22, 2017

Vaporizing has been around for the past years and for good reasons. Vaporizing Cannabis is a smoke-free way of consuming marijuana with noticeable health benefits. Unlike smoking, this method does not involve burning or combustion of the herb. As a result,  they do not give off the tar and other carcinogens that can cause lung-related diseases. 

How Does a Vaporizer Work?

Vaporizing is the process of heating dried herbs to a temperature just below its combustion point of 392°F. The vapor produced upon reaching the vaporization is what you inhale through the mouthpiece. There are three types of vaporizers: vape pens, portable vaporizers, and desktop vaporizers. Be sure to get something that is designed for your dry herbs or concentrates.

Heating Sources

  • Conduction – The herbs are vaporized using direct heat. The correct temperature should be set to regulate the heat emitted by the vaporizer and avoid possible combustion.
  • Convection – This process does not involve the direct heating of herbs. Instead, the heated air passes through the dried herbs, Vaporizing cannabis material evenly. This is the preferred choice for many patients looking to get the most out of their experience.
