VIDEO: What is a medical cannabis vaporiser?



A prescribed vaporiser may be covered by health insurance and you may be allowed to use it in a hospital or clinical setting. 

In a new series, Integro Medical Clinics and Vape Dispensary have joined forces to answer some of the most common questions patients have about using a medical vaporiser. 

When a patient is first prescribed medical cannabis flower by a specialist doctor, the prospect of actually taking their prescription using a medical vaporiser can seem daunting. 

What exactly is a medical vaporiser? How does it work? And how do I maintain it? Are questions commonly asked. 

There is a full time specialist cannabis practise nurse at Integro Medical Clinics, who is available to answer questions and give practical advice. The team at Vape Dispensary are also very happy to answer any patient’s questions relating to the machines and their maintenance.

Now George Alexander, CEO of Vape Dispensary, the established expert in the medical vaporiser market, has joined forces with Integro Medical Clinics to produce a series of three films that inform and educate the patient in a clear and concise manner. 

The first film examines what are the differences between a medically  approved vaporiser and a regular consumer one? 

A prescribed vaporiser may be covered by health insurance and you may be allowed to use it in a hospital or clinical setting. 

It will meet the highest EU clinical medical device standards and will heat herbal materials to a point at which the oils evaporate and become steam with active ingredients. It comes with a grinder that allows you weigh out your specifically prescribed amount of flower and then put it in the correct size dosing capsule to heat then inhale – either 50mg, 100mg or 150 mg

Examples of medical vaporisers include best sellers, the Mighty Medic (£314)  and the Volcano Medic  (£449) produced by German manufacturer, Storz and Bickel.  

They are made of the highest standard of  medically approved materials and ensure the patient has complete peace of mind. 

“We speak to patients every day who couldn’t live without the option of using cannabis medicines in their dry herb medical vaporiser because it can be delivered quickly,” said Alexander, CEO of Vape Dispensary. 

“It allows you to take a very precise dosage compared to other options such as edibles and oils. It is the quickest and best way for a patient to get instant relief.”

Watch out for the second instalment, next week on Cannabis Health, exploring how to actually use the medical vaporizer.
