Cannabis Vaporizer Combines Efficient Delivery of THC with Effective Suppression of Pyrolytic Compounds

Dale Gieringer Joseph St. Laurent Scott Goodrich

ABSTRACT. Cannabis vaporization is a technology designed to deliver inhaled cannabinoids while avoiding the respiratory hazards of smoking by heating cannabis to a temperature where therapeutically active canna- binoid vapors are produced, but below the point of combustion where noxious pyrolytic byproducts are formed.

This study was designed to evaluate the efficacy of an herbal vapor- izer known as the Volcano®, produced by Storz & Bickel GmbH&Co. KG, Tuttlingen, Germany (http://www.storz-bickel.com). Three 200 mg samples of standard NIDA cannabis were vaporized at temperatures of 155°-218°C. For comparison, smoke from combusted samples was also tested.

The study consisted of two phases: (1) a quantitative analysis of the solid phase of the vapor using HPLC-DAD-MS (High Performance Liq-
