The most efficient administration route of medicinal cannabis is by inhalation. Indeed, administration by inhalation is a rapid way to induce measurable serum levels of cannabinoids. You can begin to feel the effects of cannabis within 2 to 10 minutes. It kicks in quickly because it enters your bloodstream via your lungs within minutes of inhaling it.
A vaporizing medical device, compared to smoking, dramatically lowers concentrations of toxic compounds such as carbon monoxide, ammonia and polyaromatic carbohydrates (PACs). Compared to smoking, consistent, reproducible THC extraction is possible, delivering higher therapeutic levels of THC.
For vaporization to be truly effective, the cannabis product used with it must be of pharmaceutical quality. Fully standardised cannabis flower assures dosage composition, repeatability and the ability for patient and prescriber to effectively adjust dose by titration.
Pharmaceutical quality cannabis flower is also required from a patient safety perspective – it is free of contaminants such as microbes, pesticides, heavy metals and other toxic compounds.
These are qualities that make the vapour safe for inhalation into the lungs.
The German-based Storz & Bickel GmbH & Co. KG is the first manufacturer of medical cannabis vaporizers worldwide and specialised in providing reliable and medically certified vaporizers and with that, a validated method for cannabis inhalation.
Oleo recommends that all patients use only medical vaporizers for Vaping.
