If the e-cigarette is for many a way to quit smoking, the E-joint, meanwhile, could help to stop injecting the bad substances of cannabis to inhale only the good ones! In the United States where cannabis is legalized in several states, the E-joint is a real success !
Cannabis, although illegal in France, has long been recognized for its medicinal properties in other countries. And more particularly in the country of Uncle Sam. If from a federal point of view, this one is illegal in the United States, it is yet legal in some states such as Colorado, Oregon or Washington. Other states like California or the District of Columbia have adopted it for medicinal purposes. It would indeed help patients with epilepsy as well as those who have sleep disorders or nausea. Yet just like tobacco, Cannabis contains tar (a substance known to cause cancer).
27% of American teenagers smoking cannabis
For those who like to inhale cannabis smoke or want to use it medicinally but refuse to swallow tar, the e-seal is starting to make its way into the vaporizer market. And to United Statesit's a hit! According to an American study published this morning in usatoday, more than 27% of adolescents Cannabis smokers have already tried to vaporize it.
In states where it is legal, those over 21 can purchase it as herbal or oil. And more and more Americans are buying it as an oil for vaping. Others choose to make cannabis oil themselves from the plant. A very promising new market in Uncle Sam's country.
95% CBD and THC in the E-seal
Few studies have been done yet regarding the dangers of inhaling cannabis as a vapor, but some American sites defend the fact that vaping weed would bring 95% of the cannabinoid contained in cannabis oil, whereas smoking would only bring very little cannabinoid (CBD) into the body. This substance being known to calm, is also used to treat certain diseases. Smoking cannabis on the other hand would be much more dangerous because the combustion of it would decrease the amount of CBD. And the tar inhaled by cannabis smoke would be as dangerous as that inhaled by cigarettes.
If in the United States, cannabis oil is a hit, France is still far behind on this same point. Everyone will have their own idea whether it should be legalized or not.
