Summary:
Cannabis vaping is a harm reduction practice. This survey examines motives, experiences and preferences of adolescent and adult cannabis users. The study will characterize vaping practices among diverse users and identify reasons for increased vaporizer use. We inquire how vaporizer use compares to other methods of consumption such as smoking.

The proposed cross-sectional study will employ survey methods to better understand the motives, experiences, practices, and preferences of adolescent and adult cannabis users. Specifically, we will examine participants' use of vaporizers and their perceptions of how vaporizer use compares to other routes of administration (i.e., smoking, edibles, etc.). By sampling a large international population, our aim is to further characterize vaping practices among diverse users and identify common reasons for the increasing rates of vaporizer use. This research extends and expands upon previous work by examining female cannabis users who may have different practices or motives for use than men, and adolescents, who may have different practices or motives for use than adults.
