Inhaling Medical Cannabis: Comparing Vaping vs. Smoking | Ask Dr. David

NOTE: In my first upload of this episode there was a long pause at the beginning of the video. I removed the pause in the original video and have re-uploaded a new video with the missing information from the 1:30 – 4:00 mark. Tap below! ⤵️

The fastest way to get the medical benefit from cannabis is by inhaling it. Historically, this has been done by smoking it, more recently people have chosen to vaporize as a primary method. There are differences between these two types of medical consumption, so let’s talk about it!

    So in your opinion, would dry herb vaping be the healthiest method of consumption? And what would you say the risks are to lung health, with regards to cancer, COPD, bronchitis etc… if any

    Is dry herb vaping better for COPD? I cant seem to find an answer to this anywhere. Thats all I really want to know about it.

    Vaping it has drastically reduced the amounts i've consumed. I am a chronic user of over 10 years due to medical reasons, and 7 years ago I could and often would smoke at least 2grams a day up to 3.5 grams, my cough was horrible. Since commiting to vaping, I now have success staying medicated all day off .75 grams at the most. I will admit I have a multitude of dry herb vape devices, it seems absurd, but they all perform differently for different situations and medical applications. It can get costly depending on what kind of device you want for your use case but it will pay itself off so fast if you just commit to the process. Take a t-break for a couple days before trying the first time.

    Interesting. I’m a long time user and mostly dry herb vape now but did smoke it before that was available. I do find that for some medical purposes just smoking it works better than vaping for me. For example if I’m nauseous I just smoke a small amount of flower and it helps a lot, where as if I vaped the flower i wouldn’t get relief. And if I vaped a comparable cartridge I’d feel very little relief. Is there a reason for that or is it just my body’s reaction to vaping vs smoking personally

    Thank you for putting this out there for people to hear. There’s a lot of confusions with the different forms of smoking/vaping and one way could be way healthier than another.

    Hey doc, since no one has told you yet, there is a very long freeze towards the beginning of the video. Great video so you might want to reupload!
