We are all familiar with the good old rolled joint or dry-pipe to deliver inhaled smoke from marijuana. The extremely popular water-pipe provides us with added filtration. But have you tried vaporizing?
Probably the worst side effects associated with ‘burning’ a joint or ‘lighting’ a dry/water pipe are a harsh cough and large amounts of phlegm. This is due to the inhalation of many irritating toxic and carcinogenic by-products, produced during combustion (or burning) of matter. Vaporizers provide an alternative to burning for medical cannabis administration avoiding respiratory hazards. This is achieved due to no-combustion.
Vaporizer (for our purpose) is a device used to extract for inhalation the active ingredients of chemicals or plant materials. There are many vaporizer products on the market but most notably function by 1 of 3 operating system:
1. Conduction: substance is placed on a heated surface, made of metal or ceramic
2. Convection: substance is placed in a chamber, which hot air is pushed (or inhaled) through
3. Thermal radiation: substance receives heat-radiation.
All systems main purpose is heat with no combustion. The avoidance of burning ideally results in minimal particles of tar and carbon monoxide.
A popular product, known as ‘The Volcano’, uses a convection system to push low-heat air through substance, producing therapeutically active cannabinoid vapors, which then is filled in a balloon for use(similar to steam). But a downfall is the large machine size. Our market has produced by demand, portable devices, and there are many to choose from.
Dementia smoke shop carries several products of demand: Volcano, Vapor Brothers, PAX, Magic Flight, Atmos, Cloud, micro-G, and micro-Vaped (glass dome). And we have four convenient locations in Woodland Hills, Sherman Oaks, North Hollywood, and Santa Barbara. Get one and experience the difference.
