Vaporizing Cannabis and Marijuana

Vaporizing is a technique aimed at heating cannabis to a high temperature without burning the plant material. In this way cannabinoids and terpenes are released in the form of a vapor, which can be inhaled directly. Vaporizing offers all the advantages of inhaled administration (rapid effect, accurate dosing) while avoiding the risks related to smoking. Although many different vaporizer devices are available on the market, only a few of them have been subjected to any quality testing. The Volcano® Medic vaporizer is currently the only one that has a status of approved medical device (in Canada and Germany), showing that it is a reliable and efficient device for administering cannabinoids. The miniVap (R) is another vaporizer that is currently undergoing quality testing.
Because plant material is not burned during vaporizing, no active ingredients are lost and the full potential of the cannabis can be used.
