Definition: Inhaling vaporized cannabis derived from dried flower or concentrated oil, aka “concentrates.”
How it works: The process of vaporizing cannabis involves heating dried flower or cannabis oil to a temperature that turns the plant’s active ingredients into vapor.
Types of products:
There are three main methods to vaporize cannabis: tabletop vaporizers, portable vaporizers and vape pens. Each has their own benefits. Tabletop vaporizers are stationary and offer a range of temperature controls. Portable vaporizers are smaller and battery-operated. Vape pens are designed to look like a traditional pen except with a battery and cartridge for your concentrates.
How they work:
Vaping is an alternative for those who prefer their cannabis inhaled. You can vape both dried flower and cannabis concentrates. Vaping begins to produce effects within minutes. Recent media coverage of vaping-related illnesses have largely been attributed to toxins produced from inhaling tobacco using this method. Similar to edibles, standardization and regulatory requirements reduce the risk of using vapes that might contain harmful additives.
The history of vaping:
Inhaling vapor goes back over 200 years in the tobacco industry. In the 1920s, an electronic vaporizer was first developed for medical patients. It wasn’t until 1963 that an American named Herbert Gilbert invented the first smokeless cigarette. In the mid-2000s, vaping started to gain popularity in Europe as an alternative to cigarettes.
Dosage guidelines for vaping products:
Health Canada suggests starting with THC levels of 100mgs or less with equal or higher levels of THC. Onset times are similar to smoked cannabis. New users should start with a kit which includes all of the necessary products for vaping.
