Syqe Medical, a company in Tel Aviv Israel, may have developed a tool that will revolutionize the way patients administer medical cannabis. Their 3D-printed cannabis inhaler not only delivers precise dosing quantities, but it also allows doctors to supply the patients via remote control. The inhalers come pre-loaded with 100-microgram cartridges that can be accessed and controlled wirelessly by doctors and health professionals who need administer and monitor its usage.

Chairman of the company, Etan Hyam, explains, “For doctors, the inhaler solves the problem of prescribing plants for smoking, and offers a solution for patients in that, for the first time, they will be able to receive a precise dose of medical cannabis.” The cannabis inhaler is already approved by the Israeli government for use this year. Elon Eisenberg, director of the Pain Research Department at Rambam Medical Center in Israel, praises this development, saying, “The development of this inhaler fulfills our greatest hopes, to be able to administer accurate and reliable doses of cannabis….[It’s] a breakthrough in cannabis treatment and the medical use of cannabis in Israel and around the world.”
