Q: What is the healthiest way to smoke marijuana? And what is the most effective and/or efficient method?

A: In my opinion, the most efficient, most effective, and healthiest way to smoke cannabis is to vaporize it. This way, the active components are released in a vaprous form that can be inhaled, but smoke is not generated. Smoking anything is bad for you. There are various techniques for vaproizing. Most involve a vaporizing device that can purchased from "head shops" or internet/mail order stores. These work with varying efficiency and delivery techniques.

Some users report using a simpler home method called "hot knifing" (a technique often used with hashish), where a small bud piece is pressed between two hot butter knives or similar structures and inhaled directly or through some collection funnel/tube/cooling device.
