People sometimes burn herbs for aromatherapy purposes. However, the burning process can release a number of unhealthy chemicals. A potentially better option is to use a handheld vaporizer. Vaporizers heat the herb to produce an inhalable vapor a person can breathe in without actually burning the herb so only the more beneficial compounds are released. This is the same principle used in e-cigarettes, just using a different herb instead of the tobacco.
Those who can legally use this herb for medicinal purposes may find that using a vaporizer is a better way to get the benefits. Be sure to use only medical cannabis and stick to the recommended temperature range. This will make it so no carcinogens or tars caused by burning the herb make it into the vapor. Potential benefits include reduced pain during cancer treatment and help with anxiety and depression symptoms.
