UC Clinical Study Shows Using Marijuana Vaporizer 'Safe and Effective"

Vaporization of cannabis is an effective method to deliver THC according to a clinical study

IACM via BBSNews 2007-04-29 -- In a study conducted at the University of California by Dr. Donald Abrams and his colleagues 18 healthy subjects received three different strains of cannabis (with a THC content of 1.7, 3.4 or 6.8 per cent) by vaporization (Volcano, Storz & Bickel) as well as by smoking a cannabis cigarette. Peak plasma concentrations and bioavailability of THC were similar under the two conditions. The levels of carbon monoxide were reduced with vaporization. Researchers concluded that "vaporization of cannabis is a safe and effective mode of delivery of THC."

According to a study on interviews with cannabis users in the internet by researchers of the State University of New York the use of vaporizer is associated with self-reported respiratory symptoms compared to cannabis users who smoke the drug.
