Medical cannabis can be life-changing for many people. But, smoking is not the most health-conscious way to medicate. Many people use oils and edibles, but sometimes immediate relief is needed, or you may not want long-lasting effects.
In this case, vaporizing is a great option for many medical cannabis patients. Aphria explains:
Vaporizing cannabis is more cost-effective and better for your health compared to smoking cannabis. Burning cannabis (smoking) at temperatures around 230°C creates combustion, resulting in the production of harmful byproducts. These byproducts are thought to contribute to smoking-related cancers. Vapourizers reach temperatures
of only 180–190°C. This is below the point of combustion, resulting in therapeutically active cannabinoid vapours without harmful byproducts.
