Many medical marijuana patients who choose to medicate via inhalation may choose to vaporize due to its less harmful effects on the lungs. Now researchers from the University of Lusanne in Switzerland back these claims, reporting cannabis oil in electronic cigarettes is a safe alternative to smoking medical marijuana. The scientists extracted their own cannabis oil, but used electronic cigarettes that are already available in the marketplace. Researchers reported in Scientific Reports that those who partook in the study were able to experience therapeutic relief without getting high in a gentle, efficient, safe, and user-friendly way. One researcher, Vincent Varlet, noted that this is the goal of medicating with medicinal cannabis, saying, "This could be a great approach to using these kinds of cannabinoids. The aim is not to get high, the aim is to get cured."
