What is a Pressurized Metered Dose Inhaler (pMDI)?

A pressurized metered dose inhaler, known as a pMDI, is the most widely prescribed pharmaceutical delivery device to deliver a specific amount of medication to the lungs, in the form of a short burst of aerosol that is usually self-administered by a consumer via inhalation.

Is it safe to use?

Yes. pMDI’s and aerosol inhalers have been used as early as 1967 and approved for medical use in the United States in1982. Clinical trials completed in the 1970’s have proven that cannabis administered with an aerosol delivery system can improve lung function in adult asthma patients.

What about inhaling ethanol?

Ethanol is safe and effective surfactant and has been documented by the National Center for Biotechnology Information, a division of the National Institute of Health as the primary cosolvent utilized in pMDI’s.

Has this product been tested for human consumption?

Yes. Clinical trials completed in the 1970’s by pulmonologist, Donald P. Tashkin, and others has shown advantages in aerosoled cannabis verses smoking or orally administered cannabis.

Why is it considered a healthier way to consume cannabis?

The use of aerosols as a delivery method is a more effective way to consume cannabis than smoking or vaping, since no smoke is exhaled. There is also little to no smell when exhaling, making it extremely discreet. You are inhaling the cleanest form of isolated cannabinoids on the market today, and the Aero™ Inhaler supports a “smoke free” environment supported by the National Institute of Health.

What are the ingredients and their purpose: HFA’s? Surfactants?

The ingredients are cannabis oil and an ethanol based formulation, which are used to thin the cannabis concentrate to reach a suitable viscosity for dispensing through the pMDI. HFA134a is the most commonly used propellant used in medical, aerosol formulations and pharmaceutical MDI’s.

What is the mouthpiece called; and is there any recommended product maintenance?

The mouthpiece (the white plastic device) is called an actuator. The actuator has a 100 mcl valve that delivers approximately 7.0 mg of activated cannabinoids per dose. In the event the actuator appears clogged or discolored after multiple uses, the valve opening should be cleaned simply with isopropyl alcohol.

What is the difference between the Aero™ Inhaler device and an asthma inhaler device?

There is no difference in the components that make up these devices. The only difference is a cannabinoid based formulation versus a pharmaceutical based, asthma formulation.

Would you recommend it for people with COPD or asthma; if so, why?

Yes. It has been reported in clinical trials, that ∆9-THC and other concentrations of cannabinoids delivered by an aerosol device significantly improves respiratory lung function.

How do you use it properly or effectively?

Your new Quest AeroInhaler is a uniquely discreet way to enjoy cannabis with ultra-convenient portability and no odor profile.

AeroInhaler carefully measures each puff to ensure a proper 10mg dose. That’s right no more guesswork!

PROPER USE – (CONSUME RESPONSIBLY):

  1. Prime Inhaler (FIRST USE ONLY)
  2. Shake well and press down on cannister one time to prime actuator.
  3. Place actuator to mouth, press and inhale.
  4. Shake well for every use after initial prime.

How to Use the AeroInhaler

How does a THC distillate high differ from smoking or vaping cannabis?

The Aero inhaler uses distillates derived from concentrates. Most marijuana smoked as dry flower, has a THC potency of 15%-27% (on average); the potency of concentrates can range as high as 95.0%. The Aero Inhaler uses concentrates of 80.0%+ potency or more, formulated with live resin terpenes for flavor. Unlike vaping or smoking flower, the Aero Inhaler requires no heat, has no carcinogens and produces no smoke or vapor.

How many doses in the canister?

The actuator valve dispenses a 100 microliter dose consistently from the 1st dose to the final dose. The formulation exceeds 1.0 gram per unit placed in the canister, providing a minimum of 100 doses.

Do you have to shake it before each dose? Why?

Yes. Like any medical inhaler, the Aero Inhaler should be shaken for the 5 seconds prior to each use to properly mix the formulation with the pharmaceutical propellant.

Does temperature affect the device?

Yes. Although the inhaler will work in most hot or cold temperatures, the optimum temperature for the best results should be above 32°F or below 110° F.

Can I replace the canister/cartridge?

No. Once the Inhaler cannister is placed in the actuator it should not be removed.

Is it recyclable?

No. At this time there are no marijuana industry guidelines regarding recycling or disposal of used inhalers. Med Pro does state that the easiest way to safely dispose of them is giving them to your local pharmacy.

What are the dosing details?

Each dose from the first to the last is universal in providing 100 microliters of formulation, or approximately 7.5 mg of active ingredients (THC/CBD) per actuation.

When is the CBD version being released?

The 1st quarter of 2018, pending MED and METRC compliance by Hemp growers.

Why Live Resin Terpenes over synthetic terpenes?

Natural Flavor! Although synthetic terpenes have come a long way; we believe that cannabis connoisseurs will know, appreciate and understand the difference. Think wine. There are synthetic grape and wine products out there. Wine drinkers know the difference.

Are there cutting agents in the AeroInhaler?

The inhaler does use pharmaceutical grade propellant, surfactants and emulsifiers, including ethanol, which assists in delivering the optimum viscosity of the concentrate inside your inhaler.

How many puffs to get high?

Each puff or activation provides approximately 7.5 mg of active ingredients (THC/CBD) to the user. The psychoactive-effect is variable based on the formulation and users tolerance. We recommend starting with 2 puffs and to wait 5 minutes prior to the next actuation.

Why does my mouth feel oily?

Up to 30% of the dispensed concentrate dose goes directly into the lungs; the remaining dose is absorbed in the mouth and esophagus. Keep in mind that similar to a vape product, the Aero formulation, a concentrate, is oil. Live resin terpenes, a signature ingredient and also a fragrant oil, are what give cannabis its aromatic diversity. They’re what give Blueberry its signature berry smell, Sour Diesel its funky fuel flavor, and Lavender its sweet floral aroma. These oils are secreted in the flower’s sticky resin glands, the same ones that produce THC, CBD, and other cannabinoids.

Is the Aero Inhaler legal in all states?

No. Each state must approve the inhaler as a medical device, compliant in that state. Only those legal recreational and, or medical states that accept the delivery system are considered legal states or jurisdictions.

Is it safe to use?

Yes. pMDI’s and aerosol inhalers have been used as early as 1967 and approved for medical use in the United States in1982. Clinical trials completed in the 1970’s have proven that cannabis administered with an aerosol delivery system can improve lung function in adult asthma patients.
