Vaporizing Vs Smoking

In Blog // on June 25th, 2013 // by // No comment

To smoke or to vaporize? That is the question many medicinal marijuana users are asking themselves these days. This blog will look at the health benefits associated with vaporizing versus traditional smoking.

What is vaporizing?

Vaporizing or vaping is the act of using a vaporizer to consume medicinal marijuana. A vaporizer is the object you use to vaporize your medicinal marijuana with. You place dried marijuana in vaporizer’s pipe and the vaporizer will heat the marijuana at such a high temperature that the medicinal ingredients begin to evaporate and become vapor, which you inhale. This provides you with a clean, smokeless, much healthier way to consume your medicine. You will also be consuming more of your medicine versus smoking as well because the medicine is not being burned.

Another tremendous benefit of vaporizing is the ratio to which you consume your medicinal marijuana versus smoking. You will find you are using far less medicine in order to achieve the same medicinal effects with vaporizing, unlike traditional smoking where you burn away a lot of the medicine into ash.

Westcoast Medicann offers one of the best vaporizers on the market, Arizer’s SOLO,  in stock at both our Cambie and Kingsway locations and our online shop. The $275.00 price may seem daunting to some but this machine is definitely worth the cost considering the health benefits and its ability to pay for itself over time. Remember, one vaporizer session only uses 25-30% of the amount of marijuana commonly found in one rolled marijuana cigarette. Think of how much longer your medicine will last at that rate and how much less will be wasted just burning away while you smoke.

Below is a third party video review of the SOLO by the Vape Critic on Youtube to give you a look at the machine and some outside perspective of it’s quality.
