Vaporizing allows patients to inhale cannabis without the combustion process of burning marijuana. Vaporizing usually provides a rapid onset of euphoria along with other therapeutic effects within 5 to 10 minutes.
Vaporizers are roughly twice as effective at extracting THC than smoking cannabis. Not only is burning the plant an inefficient way to extract the full cannabinoid profile, but it also introduces unwanted carcinogenic smoke into the equation. Vaporizing, on the other hand, heats the cannabinoids to their boiling point, which dehydrates the plant and releases the entire cannabinoid profile in a non-carcinogenic vapor. The vapor is considered so soothing that even asthma patients find relief with this consumption method.
