What’s The Healthiest Way To Use Medical Marijuana?

Seventeen states and the District of Columbia have legalized the use of medical marijuana. As of July 2012, six additional states had some form of a medical marijuana law pending. Many assume that these laws are just a way for stoners to smoke weed without getting in trouble. Yet, there’s no denying that marijuana has vast medicinal properties, and many have achieved a better state of health by ingesting it.

Unless you live in a state with legalized marjiuana, you might not realize that smoking weed isn’t the only way to enjoy its medicinal properties. It’s common for marijuana patients to use tinctures, oils, baked goods, and even vaporized cannabis instead of smoking. Although there is no scientific evidence directly linking marijuana smoking to cancer, it has been accused of being identical to tobacco. So what if you didn’t have to smoke it?

A popular alternative to smoking cannabis is something called “vaporizing.” A vaporizer is a special device designed to burn up the plant material while leaving the cannabinoids behind to be turned into vapor. This way, patients are inhaling only the active ingredient and not all of the carbon matter.

The infographic below provides an interesting comparison between smoking and vaporizing marijuana. What do you think: Does vaporizing make marijuana use more healthy?

I've been a medicinal user for almost 15 years now and have benefited from all methods, smoking, eating and vaping. Vaping is the most effective and by far most potent and certainly a lot healthier than smoking! I used to use the Volcano exclusively because there wasn't many other options but things have changed quite a bit! I got a portable vape and it works just as well. Now I can vape anywhere and I don't even need to smoke it at all anymore! You can read more about it here: http://personalweedvaporizers.com/portable-vaporizers/the-ascent-by-davinci/ they have a few others listed too but that one really is the best. Enjoy!

There is no nicotine in cannabis.
Nicotine is one of the deadliest substances known.
It is used in nerve gas.
One drop of pure nicotine on the skin will kill in 3 seconds.
Cannabis is the exact opposite.
Cannabis preserves life.

Healthiest way of smoking weedis with
Fiz. The smoke is filtered much more efficiently than any other methods. You don't cough at all, and there is no throat irritation, really smooth tokes...definitely more satisfying than vaporizing.
