Before you start vaping, it’s important to learn how to vape concentrates to receive maximum medicinal potential. In our previous blog, we have covered why vaping cannabis is better than smoking it. Click here to read it. In this post, we are going to discuss what are concentrates, vaping marijuana concentrates, and getting MMJ recs online.
What Are Cannabis Concentrates?
As the name suggests, a concentrate is a concentrated form of marijuana. Concentrates provide stronger effects than flowers. Thus, by taking a few hits, you are able to experience medicinal effects as many hits of flowers. Common textures of concentrates are, budder, crumble, sugar, sauce, and crystalline.
At medical dispensaries, you can find a wide range of options in concentrates. For instance, CBD concentrates provide calming effects without causing psychoactive effects. As per the Farm Bill of 2018, hemp-derived CBD products (containing less than 0.3 percent THC) are legal in the United States.
Vaping is a popular smokeless method of cannabis consumption. It involves heating cannabis at a much lower temperature to extract cannabinoids in the form of vapors, which are then delivered into the bloodstream. Cannabinoids in marijuana start vaporizing at 284F while combustion occurs at 446F. The temperature control feature in vaping allows you to adjust the release of cannabinoids based on your medical needs.
Vape pens are popular devices for consuming cannabis concentrates. They have an easy operation. Just add a concentrate to the bowl, switch on the device, and inhale.
Additionally, you can use e-rigs and desktop vaporizers for vaping concentrates. Desktops are often preferred by groups. They are large in size and some need to be plugged in. You can inhale the vapors through a tube.
Here are some of the major benefits of vaping concentrates-
Since terpenes are not burned when you vape marijuana, it allows you to enjoy the original taste and flavor. In fact, modern vape pens allow you to do customized temperature settings for the desired taste.
According to a study by MAPS and California NORML, vaping converts 46 percent of THC into vapors while it’s 25 percent in the case of smoking.
Vape pens are portable devices, which can easily fit in travel bags. No need to worry about marijuana-related odor or carrying additional accessories.
How to Dose Concentrates?
Since concentrates provide stronger effects, it’s necessary to dose them properly. So, how to determine the right amount of concentrates for managing your condition?
The best way is to experiment with different doses and concentrates. Different patients experience different symptoms. So, if a patient is using high doses of CBD concentrates for managing their symptoms, it’s not necessary that the same doses work for another patient. This may be true even if they share the same age, condition, etc.
Try different doses, starting from a low dose, and see which is providing you relaxation. You can also try different concentrates with different levels of cannabinoids and terpenes.
