Vaporizing and other ways to avoid smoke

Smoke, even if cooled, is irritating to the mouth and air passages. Cannabis smoke contains carcinogens (cancer-causing agents).

Fortunately, there is an alternative to smoking cannabis called vaporizing that avoids nearly all carcinogens but offers the rapid relief previously found only by smoking. Cannabis releases medicinal vapors above 140 C (284 F) but doesn't release benzene and other carcinogens until it reaches 200 C (392 F), and will not combust
(burn or release smoke) until it reaches 230 C (446 F).
