What To Look For When Buying Cannabis Oil Vape Pen Cartridges
Sponsored by Evolab What’s in Your Vape Pen Oil Cartridge? Vaporization is gaining popularity in the medical cannabis community, and for good reason. Not only does vaporizing provide you with a means of safely ingesting the active cannabinoids, terpenoids, and flavonoids found in your favorite strains, but it also removes the risk of inhaling potentially carcinogenic fumes from plant material that is lit on fire. Because of this, many manufacturers have developed cannabis oil products that are designed to be vaporized including portable pen vaporizers with interchangeable oil cartridges. “Unfortunately, most of the early comers to the …
What’s the difference between topical and transdermal applications?
The terms topical and transdermal are often used interchangeably but there is a significant difference. A topical medication is intended to have an effect at the site of application. The use of topical medications does not result in significant drug concentrations in the blood and other tissues, and causes fewer adverse reactions. Examples of topical medications include antibiotics for skin infections, corticosteroids for skin irritation, and some anesthetics. Transdermal medications are absorbed through the skin or mucosal membranes instead of by oral or injectable routes, and are intended to have an effect in areas of the body away from the …

Is weed a vegetable or fruit?
Cannabis is a vegetable. Vegetables are typically defined as a “herbaceous plant grown for an edible part, usually eaten as part of a meal.” This typically refers to the leaf, stem, flower, or root of a plant. In 1967, the meaning of vegetables changed to, “any plant cultivated for food, edible herb or root.” Some vegetables may be eaten raw, while others must be cooked in order to be edible. When certain fruits and vegetables are heated, they lose a majority of their beneficial enzymes and nutrients. Cannabis is no different. Click here to learn more.
Can medical marijuana help me quit smoking cigarettes?
Great question! A team of researchers from University College London published a study in the September issue of the journal Addictive Behaviors that investigated whether low doses of cannabidiol (CBD), a cannabinoid found in medical marijuana, would help treat nicotine addiction in tobacco smokers who want to quit. The research team, led by Celia J.A. Morgan, used a double-blind, placebo controlled model for their study, which consisted of 24 participants (12 male, 12 female) between the ages 18-35. In order to take place in the study, participants were required to smoke, on …

Will I get the munchies from smoking weed?
Research has shown for quite some time that medical marijuana can be used to mediate hunger. In fact, there is a bevy of evidence that the endocannabinoid system (ECS) plays a major role in the stimulation of appetite. It seems that endocannabinoid activity in the central nervous system regulates food intake. This is because whenever you’re hungry your ECS sends signals to your hypothalamus in your brain to tell you it’s time to eat. This phenomenon has a lot to do with why many people report feeling “the munchies” after consuming cannabis. However, a study published earlier this week …
How do sublingual weed products work?
Before you swallow, cannabis can also enter the blood stream. Under the tongue and within the mouth there are a large number of blood vessels which can absorb cannabinoids. Common examples of these type of medications include dissolvable strips, sublingual sprays, or medicated lozenges or tinctures. Sublingual delivery is not only a socially acceptable and convenient way to medicate, but intake through the oral mucosal membranes in your mouth is also a very effective way to ingest cannabinoids. This method provides for rapid and effective absorption directly into your systemic circulation because of the increased bioavailability of …
