Educated Stoner: Vaping for Health
Anyone who has been unable to burn flower for recreation while suffering with cold symptoms knows about the relief vaping cannabis can bring. And I’m not talking about being able to continue recreating, but finding real relief, due to cannabis’ inflammation-fighting properties.
Even without the cold, vaporizing flower can also be used as a maintenance tool in between burning flower, easing the irritants carbon causes to the lungs.
We now know that cannabis does not cause lung cancer the way the compounds in tobacco can. But burning flower creates smoky carbon, and that causes discomfort. When cold symptoms are added, the nuisance of hacking keeps patients and partakers alike from enjoying the herb.
Vaporize, and breathing passages are cleared, inflammation is reduced, and healing begins.
Amber Lee Abbott began her journey with cannabis as a patient. An asthma sufferer herself, she finds relief with her own products now via smoking pens and clean, super critical, Co2 solvent-less smoking and medicating oils, from organically sourced material.
Air quality in the city of angels is not great, with asthma and COPD patients suffering daily. While vaping cannabis pens are quickly becoming the norm for discretion and ease of use, they are becoming even more useful as inhalers for real upper respiratory issues.
Abbott uses her vape pen as someone would use an inhaler, getting clean medicine into her lungs with no irritation from carbon.
“As an asthma sufferer, I have personally found vaping cannabis is a much better way to medicate, versus burning carbon,” Abbott shared. “Vaping cannabis actually helps asthma. Studies have found that THC is an anti-inflammatory, that opens up the airways and makes it easier to breathe – and that’s been my experience. It’s an amazing plant!”
Studies as far back as 1977 have been found within the National Institute of Health’s web site, Pub Med, showing cannabis reduces inflammation associated with symptoms from bronchial issues, such as Asthma, COPD, and congestion from upper respiratory ailments.
