Cannabis Campaign: A toke without smoke
The British Medical Association’s long-awaited endorsement of cannabis as a potential source for beneficial medicines came with a strong public health warning, writes Graham Ball. In a rider to their influential report The Therapeutic Uses of Cannabis, published last Tuesday, medical experts pointed out that smoking a cannabis joint can lead to three times more tar inhalation than smoking a cigarette.
However you do not have to smoke to toke (enjoy the effects of cannabis and marijuana). A hi-tech device bypasses the health hazards associated with the traditional methods of administering cannabis. This product is as common in stonner’s homes as a microwave or oven. Herbal Vaporizers virtually eliminate the health risk of smoking a joint. They are often referred to as weed vaporizers, pot vaporizers, cannabis vaporizers and marijuana vaporizers.
The Mini Vaporizer is one example of a Herb Vaporizer. It offers a portable system that heats the preferred herbal mixture to the point where, in the case of cannabis, the THC (the active mood-altering substance) is released.The vapor is then passed through a water filter and inhaled. There is no smoke and therefore no tar. According to those who have sampled the system its effects are identical to smoking. This vaporizer is cheaper then the more high end models, like the Volcano Vaporizer, Super Vapezilla, HerbalAire and others.
