Educated Stoner: Vaping for Health

Anyone who has been unable to burn flower for recreation while suffering with cold symptoms knows about the relief vaporizing cannabis can bring. And I’m not talking about being able to continue recreating, but finding real relief, due to cannabis’ inflammation-fighting properties.

We now know that cannabis does not cause lung cancer the way the compounds in tobacco can. But burning flower creates smoky carbon, and that causes discomfort. When cold symptoms are added, the nuisance of hacking keeps patients and partakers alike from enjoying the herb.

Vaporize, and breathing passages are cleared, inflammation is reduced, and healing begins.

Amber Lee Abbott began her journey with cannabis as a patient. An asthma sufferer herself, she finds relief with her own products now via smoking pens and clean, super critical, Co2 solvent-less smoking and medicating oils, from organically sourced material.

Air quality in the city of angels is not great, with asthma and COPD patients suffering daily. While vaporizing pens are quickly becoming the norm for discretion and ease of use, they are becoming even more useful as inhalers for real upper respiratory issues.

Abbott uses her vape pen as someone would use an inhaler, getting clean medicine into her lungs with no irritation from carbon.

“As an asthma sufferer, I have personally found vaping cannabis is a much better way to medicate, versus burning carbon,” Abbott shared. “Vaping cannabis actually helps asthma. Studies have found that THC is an anti-inflammatory, that opens up the airways and makes it easier to breathe – and that’s been my experience. It’s an amazing plant!”

Studies as far back as 1977 have been found within the National Institute of Health’s web site, Pub Med, showing cannabis reduces inflammation associated with symptoms from bronchial issues, such as Asthma, COPD, and congestion from upper respiratory ailments.

While safe access issues abound in Southern California, and real medicine is ample in shops, laboratories such as W Vapes are the ones doing the work of making real medicine. And in Los Angeles, medicine makers like W Vapes are waiting anxiously for legalization, hoping it takes some of the guesswork out of providing medicine to the masses.

“It’s very important to make sure everyone that we are doing business with is operating legitimately, and within the boundries of the law,” she continued. “It isn’t uncommon for people to be unclear on what the laws actually are, and everything seems to be changing daily.”

As legalization status changes in the rest of the country, it would be great to be able to help people nationally, helping more people in need. That’s really what this is all about.”
