Why You Should Consider Vaping Your Medical Marijuana


People suffering from medical ailments in recent years have been able to gain better quality of life from alternative treatment methods, with products that can’t be found at the neighborhood drug store like medical marijuana.


Although lots of people are familiar with the benefits of medical marijuana, the problem is that it still conjures up images of bongs, blunts and joints in cloudy, hazy basements, and smoked-out station wagons. Part of the reason why that’s the case, is because not enough people are familiar with the benefits of other methods of consumption for medical marijuana, including vaping.


There are numerous benefits that come with choosing to vape cannabis instead of smoking it. Those benefits include the facts that:

Vaping is Cleaner Than Smoking

Among the many downsides that come with smoking dry herb medical marijuana products, not many are more inconvenient than having to deal with ashes residue that smoking leaves behind. When people aren’t careful, ashes can stain carpet, clothing and furniture.


People who choose to smoke cannabis using pipes and bongs are left dealing with more maintenance that entails thoroughly cleaning residue that smoke leaves behind. Smoking medical marijuana instead of vaporizing it also leaves behind a scent that may be problematic for some users since it can be difficult to completely eliminate.


Another downside of smoking dry herb medical marijuana is that it has the potential to subject others to secondhand smoke. Vaporizers eliminate all of those problems for patients. Most vaporizers are capable of allowing patients to exhale their vapors without any smoke at all in most cases.


Patients who choose to inhale their medical marijuana don’t have to worry about lighters, papers or any of the other supplies necessary for smoking cannabis, either. The only maintenance tip for patients who choose to vape their medical marijuana, is to ensure that both the mouthpiece and chamber of the device are clean ahead of use.


Vaping Allows Patients to Benefit From the Terpenes in Medical Marijuana

One of the main benefits of vaping medical marijuana is that it allows patients to experience the full spectrum of what their cannabis buds are capable of. Vaporizers do that by offering multiple temperature options for patients to heat their dry herb material, which provides an experience slightly different than smoking.


Vaping dry herb is becoming an increasingly popular way to smoke medical marijuana due to the fact that it allows people to experience the flavors present within medical marijuana buds. That’s the case because unlike with smoking, vaporizers don’t burn the terpenes that are present within cannabinoids that exist in cannabis.


What Are Terpenes?

Terpenes are aromatic compounds that give plants, fruits and herbs the key characteristics they’re known for, like their smell. When it comes to medical marijuana, terpenes can promote certain characteristics like relaxation or calmness.


What Do Terpenes Do?

Research also shows terpenes may be effective when it comes to helping to preserve the health of plants and herbs as well. Terpenes are also potentially vital in helping to differentiate the effects of various cannabis strains.


Vaping Medical Marijuana is Convenient

Many patients who rely on medical marijuana have no way of knowing exactly when they’ll need their cannabis. That’s why they benefit from investing in a vaporizer that allows them to get the relief they need, whenever possible.


Often enough, portable vaporizers can be charged while patients are on the go, which means they’re able to use them whenever necessary. Most portable vaporizers also allow patients to load up enough dry herb material to last for multiple uses, too. Since vaping medical marijuana is fairly discreet as well, it allows patients to access the medical marijuana they need without the public knowing.


Another aspect of vaping medical marijuana that makes it convenient for patients is that so many of them are designed to fit right within the palm of a person’s hands. That means they’re small enough to stow them away in a pocket, bookbag or purse. The good news about choosing to vape medical marijuana is the fact that there are so many great dry herb vaporizers on the market to choose from that there’s bound to be at least one that will meet your needs. All it takes to experience the convenience of dry herb vaporizers is to use it regularly to get the hang of it.


Vaping Medical Marijuana Gives Patients More Control Over Their Experience

Medical marijuana vaporizers often come with the ability to change the temperature levels as they see fit. Although there are multiple temperature settings for most portable dry herb vaporizers, it’s likely that most patients will find one that they enjoy and stick with that. Other patients may find benefits from burning their medical marijuana at different temperatures based on what they’re dealing with at the moment.


Either way, by vaporizing, medical marijuana patients gain control over their medical marijuana experience that’s hard to find with edibles or by traditional forms of smoking cannabis. This may be beneficial not only when it comes to properly treating conditions, but in helping patients get comfortable with medical marijuana in general.


It’s natural for people to have their reservations about vaporizing medical marijuana, especially if it’s the first experience a person has with cannabis. Luckily Ohio Marijuana Card provides people who are apprehensive about medical marijuana with live support 6 days a week to answer any questions a person may have when it comes to using cannabis to treat their medical conditions.
