Cannabis technology is making advances in nearly every aspect of the industry. From more efficient growing methods to new and unique ways of consuming cannabis, the industry is ever changing. Recently, more consumers and patients are looking into vaporizing their marijuana. Cannabis research is continuously discovering further information about marijuana’s benefits and the differences between ingestion methods. Studies show the tremendous medical and recreational benefits of vaporizing marijuana, rather than combusting the cannabis. Even the number 1 recreational and medical marijuana dispensary, LivWell Enlightened Health, is pushing to educate their consumers on the benefits of vaping dry herb.
LivWell Consumer Education
Vaporizing cannabis has been around for a little while, but it is still not mastered. With the rise of e-cigs, cannabis vaporizers have drastically grown in popularity. However, there is still a serious educational curve for consumers to learn how to vape their cannabis correctly. With the help of Ian Dumpert, LivWell Enlightened Health has provided a crash course on why vaporizing is an ideal method of ingestion.
Ian Dumpert, R&D Farm Manager, Genetics, has been with the company since the beginning and is a driving force behind LivWell’s brand and product lines.
“Vaporization has the advantage of not actually combusting the plant material, which gives a cleaner, more defined flavor, free from the sometimes harsh and dank finish you get from smoking cannabis from a bong, pipe, or joint,” Dumpert said.
Dumpert helps train every LivWell budtender on the processes of producing high-end marijuana products. In other words, he's an expert when it comes to cannabis.
Vaporizing not only provides a cleaner high and smoke, but vaping dry herb shows off the natural flavors of the cannabis strains. Every strain of marijuana has a unique terpene profile that provides a unique smell, taste, and effect to consumers. Vaporizing, unlike smoking a bowl, does not burn off the terpenes as quickly and ensures the flavor remains throughout the session. When cannabis combusts (like when smoking a bong, pipe, or joint), it loses a lot of terpenes and cannabinoids throughout the process. In turn, the smoke inhaled is full of plant material and excess compounds. Plus, there are certain cannabinoids lost during the combustion process, as well. Vaporizing dry herb removes combustion from the equation and provides consumers with an effective and tasty smoke.
Pros of Vaporizing Dry Herb:
- Cleaner Smoke
- Higher Cannabinoid Intake
- Temperature Control
- Distinct Strain-specific Taste
- Easy to Use
One of the primary factors as to why vaporizing dry herb is a better method is the taste. Terpenes are the source of all cannabis aromas, flavors, and effects.
“When vaporizing, I can really taste the 'flavor notes' of cannabis more. When you’re not burning the weed to crisp, it just tastes cleaner, and clearer with more distinction," Dumpert said.
Every cannabinoid and terpene has a specific boiling point. So, when the dry herb combusts, many terpenes and cannabinoids are burnt off. Vaporizers can adjust to specific temperatures that do not allow the loss of any beneficial compounds. In turn, this gives vaporizing dry herb a more accurate flavor profile that is distinct to each strain.
