Scientific Research into Medicinal Cannabis – Asthma

Asthma is a condition in which your airways narrow and swell and produce extra mucus. This can make breathing difficult and trigger coughing, wheezing and shortness of breath. For some people, this is a minor nuisance. For others, it can be a major problem that interferes with daily activities and may lead to a life-threatening attack. The most common pharmaceutical method of treating asthma attacks is through the use of corticosteroids delivered through inhalers that vaporize the medication.

Asthma is a chronic inflammatory disease and cannabis is a known anti-inflammatory. When THC is delivered through a vaporizer, it still has the almost immediate bronchial dilation effects without the harmful smoke associated with smoking it expands, rather than constricts bronchial passageways.

Sgns and symptoms include:

  • Shortness of breath
  • Chest tightness or pain
  • Trouble sleeping caused by shortness of breath, coughing or wheezing
  • A whistling or wheezing sound when exhaling (wheezing is a common sign of asthma in children)
  • Coughing or wheezing attacks that are worsened by a respiratory virus, such as a cold or the flu

Vaporising Cannabis

One of the most popular cannabis vaporisers is the Volcano. This device  allows for fully customizable vape sessions for as long or as short a time period as you like.
