Marijuana Inhaler for Cancer Pain & Asthma

Cannabis is smoked by millions of people worldwide, but a percentage of people who suffer from asthma, lung disease, and other respiratory problems have to opt out of this combustion method.

Cannabis is smoked by millions of people worldwide, but a percentage of people who suffer from asthma, lung disease, and other respiratory problems have to opt out of this combustion method.

Smoking can cause irritation, coughing, and breathing difficulties. People with respiratory illnesses can consume edibles or THC drinks but it takes a little longer for your body to process it. Luckily, vaping is a fast relieving, alternative method that doesn’t pose the same consequences that smoking does.

Israeli scientists have created a cannabis inhaler that eases the pain that is caused by cancers and it also delivers medical benefits to people that suffer from respiratory issues such as asthma. The method is still being tested to ensure they produce a viable product for the public.

The way the cannabis inhaler works is an extraction of cannabis containing THC is added into vapor. When the vaporizer is activated the consumer will inhale a measured dosage of the cannabis in one inhale. By doing it this way, there is less confusion about the dosage that the consumer is inhaling.

The two Israeli pharmaceutical companies that have collaborated on this product and research are Panaxia Pharmaceuticals and Rafa Pharmaceuticals. They are in the process of conducting clinical trials at the country’s Ministry of Health. The purpose of running these trials are to understand the bioavailability that cannabis provides through an inhaler with a controlled dosage.

The clinical trials are currently on their way and are open for people to register in if they might benefit from the cannabis inhalers.

Panaxia’s CEO, Dr. Dadi Segal, “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.”
