Medical Marijuana Vaporizers– What to Know
There are many ways to consume medical cannabis including flower, edibles, tinctures, creams, and oils, but have you heard of cannabis vaporizers? Although medical marijuana products are not yet on the market in Georgia, it is smart to become acquainted with this information so you know what to expect when you first head to the dispensary.
Vaporizer devices may not be available in dispensaries right off the bat, but it is likely that they will not too long after the program is up and running! Each consumption method of marijuana has its pros and cons, but vaporizers are a great option to consider.
The best method of consumption for you will depend on your personal preferences, but we recommend talking to your doctor and trying out a few different methods before you decide which is your go-to.
Pros of Marijuana Vapes
Some of the pros of cannabis vaporizers include their convenience and discretion. Vapes do not smell as strongly as cannabis flower does, so they are a bit more discreet. You can easily take the vape with you wherever you go.
There are also many different flavors and smells offered with cannabis vaporizers, whereas most flower generally smells similar, and very strong. Vape flavors can taste like fruit, candy, or really anything at all!
Some people also say they feel stronger effects from less amount of marijuana when they use vapes compared to flower. This means you could save money in the long run since your supply would last you longer!
Many people believe vaping is healthier than smoking cannabis flower, because it is not as harsh on your lungs. When you inhale smoke from burning plant matter, it can hurt your throat and lungs, and this usually is not the case with vaping.
Cons of Marijuana Vapes
Although there are many great things about cannabis vapes, they are not for everyone, and they have their cons as well. First and foremost, the cost of vaporizer cartridges are generally more than flower.
But, when you smoke flower, there are other costs associated including a lighter, a pipe, bong, bubbles, or rolling papers, a grinder, and more.
Another con is that the effects of vaping could be stronger than that of smoking. This is really only a con for some people but a significant pro for others. If you are new to using marijuana, you probably do not want to start by using something with strong effects like a vape.
The Bottom Line
There are pros and cons to marijuana vapes, but it all comes down to your personal preferences. Marijuana vapes are not available in Georgia yet, but it is inevitable that the program will launch and will allow many forms of cannabis soon.
Cannabis is coming to Georgia, and it is best to be prepared when the time comes to access safe, legal medicine.
