Fighting the Stoner Stereotype
Using Cannabis for Health-Conscious Highs
By Kelly Buckley December 5, 2017
Whenever Colorado comes up in conversation, one thing is sure to be mentioned: weed. It’s kind of our thing.
But before you start thinking about Cheeto-dusted fingers and couch potatoes, our green state is known for so much more than revolutionizing the cannabis industry. Along with the array of dispensaries and dizzying amount of cannabis products available for medical and recreational marijuana users, Colorado is also one of the most physically active, health-conscious states in the U.S.
Yet combining these two worlds has always been problematic. Smoking in any form can negatively affect lung capacity, and as a result, athletic performance. Consuming cannabis in other forms can often be hard to predict and doesn’t always provide the same high. So what is a cannabis-loving ultra runner to do? Inhale it differently.
The innovative Quest AeroInhaler, a THC inhaler created by Denver-based company Quest Concentrates, is the nifty companion for any cannabis-loving soul looking to consume in the healthiest way possible. It functions like an asthma inhaler, so it’s discreet, convenient and portable. There’s no heat, no combustion, and best of all no irritating throat burn that makes you want to yak. It’s even better for those who have respiratory conditions since there’s no smoke involved and it doesn’t contain any additives or carcinogens. *Bonus points*
Each cannabis inhaler comes with 100 puffs in each canister, and each puff delivers a consistent amount of cannabis so you know exactly what you’re getting. For Quest, making sure it’s a safe and predictable high is as important as the quality of the cannabis, especially for medical marijuana users. And here’s where it gets good: you’ll still get the benefit of a cannabis distillate and be able to taste the flavor of live resin terpenes.
Whether you’re bombing down runs on your board, training for an Ironman, or enjoying a night under the stars next to your tent, the inhaler is designed to keep up with you. It gives you the benefits you need without turning you into a sloth. Wherever you’re off to, it’s super easy to bring with. No battery, no charging, waterproof and ready to endure cold weather without cracking, the AeroInhaler is made for the weekend warrior who’s up for what’s next and down to indulge.
So next time you think about medicating, there is a better alternative to smoking, dabbing, eating edibles or other methods of consuming, that won’t impede on your healthy lifestyle. Quest’s AeroInhaler isn’t just a revolutionary way to enhance the cannabis experience while staying true to your 10k training and kale-eating ways, it’s opening the minds of those who stigmatize stoners. It’s paving the way for all types of cannabis lovers to enjoy safely by integrating it into their lifestyle in a way that’s productive and healthy for them.
We won’t say Quest’s AeroInhaler has made living in Colorado that much more enjoyable, but we’re sure your lungs will scream it at you after a puff or two. Go ahead, pass it around your health-nut hiking circle too. We dare you.
