Combustion can be in a variety of forms, such as a pipe, water bong or rolled cannabis joint. It is generally not recommended as smoking can contribute to COPD and produces undesirable compounds that can be irritating to the lungs.
A vaporizer is a device that heats the dried cannabis matter without causing combustion, producing a vapour rich in cannabinoids that can be inhaled directly. Several models of vaporizers are available and can be chosen based on the preferences of the patient.
Note that when ingested orally, THC is primarily metabolized to 11-hydroxy-THC, a metabolite that can be 3 to 4 times more potent and result in a much more intense effect as compared to smoking or vaporizing. This makes it essential to manage oral doses carefully, with a rule of thumb being beginning with half or a quarter of a piece of an edible containing 1 gram of marijuana and waiting at least 60 minutes before ingesting higher amounts of edible items.
