  1. Cannabis inhalers! https://www.thegrowthop.com/cannabis-health/cannabis-inhalers-may-become-the-next-asthma-medication-and-cancer-pain-reliever Cannabis inhalers may become the next asthma medication and cancer pain reliever Asthma, lung diseases, and various respiratory issues are several reasons why people opt for cannabis consumption methods other than smoking Asthma, lung diseases, and various respiratory issues are several reasons why people opt for cannabis consumption methods other than smoking. Although cannabis is consumed by millions of people, certain delivery methods aren’t particularly suitable because of one’s physical health. Fortunately, though, individuals can consume cannabis orally and sublingually, apply topical products on their skin, and even use transdermal patches. Inhalation via vaping is another option, which doesn’t have the same health ramifications as combustion does. To meet and fulfill the demands of people who need immediate relief but cannot or choose not to combust cannabis, Israeli scientists have created cannabis inhalers. They’re intended to alleviate pain caused by cancer and to deliver medicinal benefits to individuals with respiratory issues like asthma. How do these cannabis inhalers work exactly though, and when will they be available to the public? Collaboration Between Panaxia Pharmaceuticals & Rafa Pharmaceuticals Recently, Israeli scientists have focused their efforts on creating the most effective and beneficial cannabis inhaler possible with the intent to help people with not only acute and chronic cancer-causing pain but also those with respiratory problems. Even though consuming cannabis through an inhaler is a new way to use the herb, this method is still being tested to ensure that all kinks will be resolved before the public has access to this product. The two Israeli companies that have collaborated with each other and already got the ball rolling are Panaxia Pharmaceuticals and Rafa Pharmaceuticals. Then, not long ago, Panaxia released information about the operation of new clinical trials at the country’s Ministry of Health. The intention of conducting clinical trials is to get a better understanding about the bioavailability of cannabis via inhalers with accurately measured controlled doses. Although cannabis is consumed by millions of people, certain delivery methods aren’t particularly suitable because of one’s physical health. If you know someone who might benefit from cannabis inhalers, registration for these clinical trials are now open. According to Dr. Dadi Segal, Panaxia’s CEO, the following was stated about cannabis inhalers and the product’s clinical trials: “The clinical trial is performed as part of the registration procedure of the new products, which we are about to launch in Israel this year in collaboration with Rafa. Through access to cannabis inhalers, and subject to a medical specialist’s recommendation, we strive to help more patients suffering from acute pain. The inhaler will provide patients that are unable or unwilling to smoke the right to be treated consistently and precisely.” How Do Cannabis Inhalers Work? Most of you are probably familiar with traditional inhalers used by asthma patients and those with respiratory issues. How are standard inhalers different than cannabis inhalers though? For starters, all cannabis inhalers contain an attached vaporizer, which allows medical patients to fill in their ideal doses of a cannabis extract or concentrate, which will then be inhaled. The cannabis extract or concentrate that’s added into the vaporizer will contain a measured dose of active ingredients. As a result, there will be little confusion about dosing since the patients can choose their desired dose rather than it being pre-selected for them. Additionally, those with debilitating or near-debilitating medical conditions, diseases, and/or illnesses can likely benefit from using cannabis inhalers once they’re available. Then, if individuals don’t want to wait more than ten minutes or so to reap the benefits they need from cannabis, cannabis inhalers can be used to experience not only fast-acting relief, but also well-being improvements. Projected Debut Date for Cannabis Inhalers Furthermore, the cannabis inhalers will be promoted and marketed by Rafa Pharmaceuticals while clinical trials are underway in Israel. Panaxia Pharmaceuticals also expressed that they plan on officially distributing their cannabis inhalers under the Rafa Pharmaceuticals brand. When will these inhalers be available to the public? So far, it has been reported that they will likely be sold at different Israeli pharmacies this year. With a medical specialist’s prescription or recommendation, Israeli residents will be able to use a cannabis inhaler sometime this year to see how it can help them. If everything goes as planned with Israel’s clinical trials and if cannabis inhalers are available to the public in Israeli pharmacies this year, would you consider trying one if you had the opportunity to? If so, what are your reasons for giving it a chance? Let us know your thoughts on this innovative product in the comments below! ___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ From today's RQS blog- ( @Joolz is it ok to post link?) Inhalers Are The Next Advancement In Medical Cannabis Cannabis inhalers are not only changing the way we dose cannabinoids, but are helping to legitimise cannabis as a viable medical treatment. To find out what makes cannabis inhalers different from a typical vaporizer, keep reading. THE WAY WE CONSUME CANNABIS IS CHANGING The way we consume cannabis is more diverse than ever. Not only are there more types of cannabis to enjoy, but consumption methods too. It can be smoked, vaporized, eaten, absorbed through the skin, and for specific medical conditions, cannabis suppositories are also available. If you want to benefit from the therapeutic potential of cannabis, there are a plethora of ways to do so. If you are a recreational user, in most cases the way you consume your cannabis will come down to personal preference. For those who use the power of cannabinoids medicinally, the way you consume cannabis is based mainly on which method provides the most significant benefit. Thankfully, for users who fall into that category, it looks as though there is another consumption method to add to the list—cannabis inhalers. Although it is still vapor being inhaled, inhalers differ vastly from vaporizers, allowing something many previous consumption methods don’t—a precise dose. With several preclinical studies to support the efficacy of cannabis inhalers, let’s take a closer look at how they work. THE FUTURE OF MEDICAL CANNABIS—THC INHALERS Cannabis inhalers have been in development for several years, and, following successful medical trials, are now starting to become available in areas where cannabis is legal for medicinal use. Simple to use, cannabis inhalers are helping to validate marijuana and its associated cannabinoids as a legitimate medicine. Cannabis inhalers are considered the epitome of “clean cannabis”. By “clean”, we mean that users do not have to inhale anything other than pure THC. Rather than heating dried herb and inhaling the subsequent vapor, THC enters the lungs via a propellant—the same way as a traditional inhaler. Because a dose can be predetermined, users get the same amount of THC every time they inhale. This precise approach to dosing is something other forms of cannabis struggle to match. THE ADVANTAGES OF A CANNABIS INHALER When people see an inhaler, they do not associate the medical device with cannabis, and at a glance, it is impossible to tell that the inhaler is loaded with THC. This makes an inhaler instantly more comfortable to use in public settings, especially as the stigma associated with cannabis has yet to lift completely. To further support an inhaler’s discretion, the vapor produced is virtually odourless, so no telltale weed smell floating about. Inhalers are also easily stored in a purse, pocket, or bag, so there is never a risk of being without, especially in places that prohibit smoking. Combined, the advantages of cannabis inhalers are substantial. However, despite their wide range of benefits over traditional methods of consumption, you may be wondering what it is that makes vapor so effective? WHY IS CANNABIS VAPOR SO EFFECTIVE? Cannabis as a medical treatment has the potential to offer a natural and healthy alternative to pharmaceutical medication. When you think of marijuana in this way, it hardly seems surprising that users are switched off by the idea of inhaling burnt cannabis flower. Even if you don’t mix your weed with tobacco in your joints, the smoke produced can still be harsh and uncomfortable to inhale. Moreover, joints also have a much lower bioavailability than vaporizing cannabis. Bioavailability is an essential consideration for medicinal users because greater bioavailability means the effectiveness of a substance is improved. Several studies support the efficacy of vapor, especially when compared to smoking. A 2003 pilot study found that inhaling vaporized cannabis on a daily basis led to an improvement in subjects’ lung function. A 2007 study concluded that there were “decreased respiratory symptoms in cannabis users who vaporize”. Combine these studies with the growing number of users switching to vaporizers, and it appears that from a medical and recreational point of view, vaporizers are coming out on top. WHAT ARE THE OPTIONS FOR CANNABIS INHALERS? Right now, options are limited unless you live in the United States or Canada. If you are fortunate enough to live in an area where cannabis inhalers are available, there are a lot of options to be had. Most manufacturers offer a range of strains all with varying strengths. One inhaler cartridge typically contains up to a hundred puffs, with a specific dose provided per spray. One of the biggest hurdles holding back medical marijuana is determining proper dosage, so the level of precision provided by an inhaler allows the medical device to compete with strict pharmaceutical standards. Although cannabis inhalers have undergone several preclinical trials, many of the results have yet to be published. While we wait for those conclusions to be reviewed and analysed, it may be some time before we see cannabis inhalers issued as standard. However, now that we know its potential, and as more cannabis companies begin to develop inhalers, it should only be a matter of time before they become a common feature of the industry.
  2. Evening all think its over three years since been active on here but once again, I'm back and hoping to be active in a month or so, if you know what i mean But I've just found this and wondering if anyone had heard of it?? https://edyn.com/ it's an all in one sensor that pairs to your phone and sends temp nutrient levels water levels. Granted you'd need One per plant. With being a loft grower and disabled i reckon it would save me having to go in the loft everyday to check levels. I know it might not be too everyone's taste or style, but i was impressed even though im waiting for the robot who could grow it for me
