The Many Benefits Of Vaping Your Medical Marijuana

Health & Medical Blog

One of the great things about medical marijuana being legalized in more states is that companies are beginning to create more innovative products. Sure, you can still smoke flower, but now there are edibles, cannabis gum, and an increasingly popular option: vape cartridges. Everyone has their own preferences, but vape cartridges really stand out as an option with a lot of benefits. 

You don't have to worry about contact highs.

If you smoke flower around friends or family members, you have to worry about them inhaling some of the secondhand smoke and getting slightly high. This is not an issue with vape cartridges. What you are inhaling is a vapor, not a smoke, and all of the THC will be absorbed out of the vapor before you exhale. In fact, there is very little that you will exhale. You will be able to vape near your friends and family members without anyone else feeling the effects.

There's no lingering odor.

While you may enjoy the odor of cannabis, many people do not. You probably do not want you whole home smelling like herb. Vape cartridges do not smell like marijuana at all. They may smell like strawberries, bananas, or whatever other flavors have been added. However, even these scents don't tend to be noticeable when the cartridge is sealed. You can bring your medical marijuana products with you to work or the store without anyone noticing an odor.

Vapor is easier on the lungs.

Sure, smoking cannabis may not be as bad for you as smoking tobacco. However, inhaling smoke is not necessarily healthy, either. Vapor doesn't contain those scorched and burned products that can be harsh on the lungs. You won't feel the need to cough after vaping, and you won't deal with a sore throat, either. Vapor is really soft and pleasant to inhale.

Vape cartridges come with specific concentrations of THC.

When you smoke flower, you do not always know exactly how much THC it contains. It's easy to accidentally take a little too much. This is less of a concern with vape cartridges. They contain a specific, pre-measured amount of THC, and you will know how much you are getting with each draw. This gives you greater control over how you use your medication.

There are many benefits associated with vaping marijuana. It's not for everyone, but if you have not yet tried it, then you deserve to give it a try soon.

Outstanding In-Home Care

When my mother fell at home and broke her hip, we all thought that we were going to have no choice to put her in a nursing home when she got out of the hospital. My mother had always asked us kids to avoid putting her in any kind of home, but we didn’t know what else we could do. None of us were capable of giving her the kind of rehabilitation and care that she needed. Then her doctor suggested that we find out if her insurance covered in-home care. I didn’t even know that that was an option. I was pleased to discover that in-home care was covered by her plan. Now she gets great care from nurses and nurse assistants that come right to her in her home, where she wants to be. It’s a great option, and I’m so glad we have it.
