The Mighty Medic is registered as a medical device with the Ministry of Health. This means they are legal to import and own similar to other medical devices such as an insulin pump or a nebulizer. Some purchasers have managed to claim partial cost of their device from their health insurance provider.
To gain the medical device classificationn, the Storz & Bickel medical device range is manufactured to meet a higher quality standard than the regular Storz & Bickel dry herb vaporisers meaning they are extremely safe to use and boast an operating life of 2-5 years.
Vaporising cannabis with a Storz & Bickel medical device increases the bioavailability of the cannabanoids when compared to smoking. When using the Mighty Medic, up to 95% of the cannabanoids in the dried herb are made available in the vapor, with 30% of these making it into the bloodstream.
Vaporisation occurs at a much lower temperature to smoking. the Mighty Medic heats cannabis flowers or oils at temperatures low enough to melt fatty cannabis resins and ouls without burning the plant material. Once melred, these resins teansform from their solid form to a type of steam. This steam is the vapor you exhale after using the vaporise. The cooling unit on the Mighty Medic allows the vapor to cool even further before reaching your lungs.
The Mighty Medic eatures a digital temperature controller meaning you can set the temperature to target a specific cannabanoids and terpenes, allowing you to access the varying benefits and lavours. Vaporising at lower temperatures (170°C) allows you to active the CBD in the medicinal cannabis without a strong psychoactive effect, while vaporising at higher termperatures (210°C) will activate the TBC for a stronger psychoactive effect.
Under the medicinal cannabis legistlation in New Zealand, medicinal cannabis can not be prescribed or the purpose of smoking. Most medicinal cannabis flower are available in New Zealand is intended for vaporisation.
