5 Benefits of Vaping Cannabis (vs smoking)

Within the inhalation method of consuming cannabis, there are many different ways one can inhale it.

The ancient way was almost always to smoke it. In the modern era of cannabis consumption, there are many more popular and advanced ways to consume either flower or concentrates:

  1. “Desktop” models that may use electricity for amplified power,
  2. Portable models that are more useful for inhalation-on-the-go,
  3. Cartridge-based “vape pens” to vaporize potent concentrates in a simple mechanism.

In short time, we will likely see adoption of (and a quickly massive rise in popularity of) aerosolization and nebulized cannabis consumption too!

Are the benefits of vaping strictly limited to cannabinoids? Certainly not.

Are the benefits of vaping even limited to terpenoids? Certainly not.

What else is there? Flavonoids.

And still more? Combinations of these that create entirely new results!

Solo Sciences Press

A sneak peek at the latest news coming about solo sciences, inc!

Imagine a future of cannabis, where consumers have the control of purchase decisions, based on accurate information about the brand and products they may want, and tamper-proof, third-party verification that what we are buying is actually what the package says it is? (and then… consider that this concept applies to products beyond cannabis, from food to beauty products, toys, entertainment…)

“The world of cannabis is murky, unpredictable, and often not safe,” said Ashesh Shah, CEO and founder of solo sciences and a former CIA profiler. “As brands and governments are struggling to fight the illicit market, we created solo* to solve that problem by creating transparency into what cannabis providers are actually selling to consumers. solo* is designed to keep people out of the dark when it comes to what they’re consuming and putting into their bodies, so they feel secure and knowledgeable about the products they’re purchasing.”

Medical cannabis doctors left to handle “backlash” from patients over lack of availability

Though UK doctors have been able to prescribe cannabis since November 2018, very few prescriptions have been issued, because most forms of medical cannabis have not been approved by the government.

In response to thousands of disappointed patients, the House of Commons Health and Social Care Committee called for immediate clinical trials focusing on the treatment of intractable childhood epilepsy.
