When burning your cannabis with a lighter – it combusts. Combustion makes smoke, which has carcinogens and other poisons – things you don’t want in your medical marijuana. Studies have shown that smoking anything is harmful, why add anything else to the mix. By avoiding combustion altogether means a more pleasant, safe, and effective cannabis experience. This process is called vaporization, and it is a ‘premium’ method for administering medical cannabis.
A vaporizer is an electronic device designed to heat your medicine to specific temperatures that will not burn the plant material. With medical cannabis, a proper vaporizer will heat the trichomes into a concentrated vapor without the dangers of smoke (which contains carcinogens like benzapyrene as well as the risk of damaging lung tissue). In turn, allowing the patient to ingest their medicine in the cleanest form – by vaporizing the cannabinoids like Delta-9-Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and Cannabidiol (CBD). Also resulting to less ingestion of substances, preventing over dosage or excessive intake, which could pose possible adverse effects to overall health
Patients seeking the immediate benefits of inhaled medical marijuana should consider vaporization their best option because of the following reasons:
Quick Effect: cannabis vapor enters the bloodstream in seconds; patients have instantaneous gratification from a proper dose.
Convenient: simply a puff away. Most vaporizers heat up in seconds.
Precise: pick your heat temperature and know your dosage on a per-puff basis.
Pleasant: taste flavors normally lost to flame, and enjoy the smokeless, ashless experience!
Using a vaporizer allows patients to absorb a cloud of cannabinoids that’s nearly invisible to the eye but pleasantly flavorful! A proper vaporizer will heat medical marijuana to a temperature between 355°-385°F, resulting in a perfect puff of vapor that doesn’t irritate the throat nor cause coughing fits.
Here at United Patients Group, we usually recommend the Digital Volcano as the pinnacle of vaporizer technology because it’s consistent, effective, and safe; however, the bulky vaporizer can be cumbersome and difficult to transport. For us, portability is one of our priorities. After all, patients are on the move – making it difficult for us to recommend a device that tethers them to the wall unnecessarily. Patients have a need to medicate away from home, and we think we’ve found their answer!
It’s called Pax, and, it looks like something you might find at an Apple store. Without exaggeration, we’re confident saying that Pax would be Steve Job’s vaporizer of choice! It is the only vaporizer that actually looks like it belongs next to a Macbook pro! Pax encapsulates all that Apple represents (quality, reliability, style) and delivers it to medical marijuana patients everywhere!
Despite Pax’s unique-for-tobacco design, we at United Patients Group feel that it translates perfectly to use with medical marijuana flowers:
Pax is efficient (3 specific temperature settings of Low = 370F, Medium = 390F, High = 410F).
Pax is affordable (only $250 – versus $600+ for a Volcano – and you suddenly don’t need lighters, hempwick, ashtrays, pipes, papers, or anything patients use to smoke medical cannabis).
Pax is reliable (with not only a 10 year limited warranty, but a lithium ion battery to hold a perfect charge).
