The 3X Effect
Efficacy is the tendency of the body to process a substance to create a perceivable effect. Efficacy of substances taken orally is approximately 30% within a 30-45 minute window. In contrast, the efficacy of active ingredients which are inhaled is approximately 90% in less than ten seconds.
Whether it’s ingestion, injection, or inhalation, a given substance can take several routes to produce these effects. In the end, the target for these substances is the bloodstream, where they are carried to the brain and the rest of the body.
The most efficient route into the bloodstream is injection at about 100%, but as we all know that has many hazards and is highly impractical. Substances taken orally must pass through the stomach and go through the process of digestion before they can be absorbed into the bloodstream. This process is both unreliable and inconsistent.
Inhalation is a consistent, reliable, and nearly instantaneous method. It enjoys ~90% efficacy but, until now, has been inconvenient to administer. Recent breakthroughs in vaporizer technology make inhalation safe, efficient and convenient. We can finally get the most out of botanicals by utilizing electronics and proper formulations.
This means we can ensure the active ingredients stay within a temperature range that will not alter the ingredients we are trying to deliver. Since we can guarantee that the structure of the active ingredients doesn’t change when vaporized, we can apply existing knowledge about substances that have traditionally been taken via ingestion.
Each botanical we use is on the FDA’s approved list of herbal supplements, so studies have been done that show they are safe and effective for both ingestion and inhalation.
Vaping botanicals is a very effective and convenient way to deliver remedies. Natural, trusted botanicals coupled with cutting edge technology create a powerful life tool that can be used by people from all walks of life without fear of side effects or abuse.
