Medical Marijuana Consumption: Smoking vs. Vaporizing

Humans have used the smoke and vapors of plants and herbs for thousands of years for medicinal and religious purposes, and as technology evolves, so do the means of inhaling the beneficial remedies.  Today, as the legalization for medical and recreational marijuana sweeps across the states, more studies are being done on the methods of medicating. The most common use of consuming cannabis is smoking; however, we are all aware that the heat from combustion can be damaging to our throats and lungs. Burning or igniting medical marijuana releases some of the active medicinal components of cannabis (aka THC, CBD, and CBN), however some believe that roughly 25-50% of the effective cannabinoids are destroyed in the process. Combustion also causes the release of unwanted by-products like carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, tar, ash, and other substances that are harmful to the human body and can later cause serious health issues.

Vaporizing, on the other hand, is a less destructive method of medicating with cannabis. During vaporization, ground up medicine is gently heated to smoke without igniting the herb. Recent studies show that vaporizing can actually increase the reception of cannabinoids and the onset of medicinal effects. Also, less carbon monoxide and tar is released, thus reducing the risks of inhaling smoke. Though smoking marijuana is not as dangerous as smoking tobacco, many MMJ patients prefer vaporizing because of its smoothness and consistent dosaging.

    ^. . Background: I’m applying for an MFA in creative writing program, and I’ve never taken a creative writing course. Most of my creative writing knowledge comes from research I did on my own. I’m wondering if during my research I at least learned the basics of creative writing, or if I really do need to take a course before starting the program? What do you think? I know most of the literary elements and how they can be implemented, though I can’t say that I implement them well..
