Anyone who knows about our support of cannabis and the numerous studies, mostly from Israel whose ongoing research points to a myriad of health benefits from the use of cannabis, this article seeks to offer both sides of the debate on whether smoking versus vaporizing cannabis is the best choice, backed by information that is available from researchers, doctors, and heads of cannabis organizations and institutions that are experts in the field of cannabis.
There is research that shows vaporizing cannabis as a safer method for consuming it which studies claim can reduce respiratory toxins and carcinogens that can occur when it is smoked. When you factor in cannabis that is grown with pesticides, herbicides, fungicides and other byproducts that can be released in smoke from its combustion (fire), still organic cannabis has been found, when smoked, to contain some of the same carcinogenic compounds contained in tobacco smoke.
Conversely, vaporizing cannabis allows a person to receive all of the components such as THC, and other cannabinoids such as CBD that are available within a specific strain of cannabis, minus the combustion toxins, specifically polycyclic hydrocarbons such as benzopyrene which is highly carcinogenic that ordinarily takes place through combustion and during consumption of smoked products including cannabis.
