Marijuana has now become legal in 28 states, some as medical and some as recreational. Gaining so much popularity and becoming in such high demand, it’s estimated to reach $21.8 billion in sales by 2020. The Food and Drug Administration has neither approved nor recognized weed as medicine, even though it has been shown to aid in so many diseases, with no one ever dying from overdose. With numerous components in weed, cannabinoids are particular chemical structures that cause the medicinal and mind-altering effects that are found in the actual plant.
Delta-g-tetrahydrocannabinol, commonly referred to as THC, is the dominant mind-altering ingredient in weed. Because of THC’s psychoactive nature, it’s used to measure the herb’s potency. A regular joint usually has 25 milligrams of THC, but over half of this amount is destroyed by combustion. Because of this, so many cannabis smokers have turned to inhalers, or devices like vaporizers, that reduce or even eliminate combustion.
Using vaporizers is one of the best methods of smoking weed, giving the cleanest, easiest, and most potent experience, which also delivers the best taste. Vaporizers are easy to use, and come in various colors, styles, and sizes. For patients who don’t enjoy smoking weed, it’s also available in herb-infused products such as edibles, like chocolates, brownies, cookies, and candy, as well as in drinks.
