Marijuana & vapourizers

Marijuana can be consumed different ways, including smoked, eaten, or vapourized. Smoking is the “dirtiest” delivery mechanism: the process of combustion releases thousands of additional chemicals–many of the same chemicals released in tobacco smoke.

Vapourizers have recently become a popular way of delivering nicotine among smokers. In contrast, relatively few marijuana users report using a vapourizer. We are developing a new study to examine the prevalence of vapourizer use among both recreational and medical marijuana users in Canada, as well as barriers to use, and perceptions of the advantages and disadvantages of vapourizer use.
