The new AroMed 4.0 with Howard Marks in Cologne.
The new AroMed 4.0 with Howard Marks in Cologne.
Evolution proceeds, research&experience faithfully hold on their pioneer course. Superficially the new AroMed vaporizer does not vary too much from its predecessor models successfully produced ever since 8 years. Of course as always, with the AroMed 4.0 active principles can be extracted from about any medical herb. They are extracted extremely carefully by hot-air-flow with temperatures exactly defined for any herb. The strict “form-follows-function” - design has not been changed, either.
Yet details have been decisively improved:
THE AROMA EVOLUTION WITH THE AroMed 4.0 VAPORIZER IS ONE STEP BEYOND NOW!
... with the AroMed vaporizer is undertaken in Germany and Cuba, first results are at hand
Since 1997 research&experience is in contact with Cuban medical scientists. Frequent donations of medicine and equipment are organized.
Cuban medical doctors’ level of knowledge is on a high standard, many of them have graduated at Humboldt University, Berlin, Germany. So for us there is easy communication with no language barrier. Yet resources are on a poor standard in Cuba, mainly because of political isolation reasons. This has gotten better in the new millennium, but still one is highly interested in easy to access alternative and natural medicine. By now there exists a flourishing health tourism bringing in foreign currency. Ophthalmology by laser, plastic surgery, dental services, and addiction therapies are well developed and attract an increasing number of patients mainly from Canada and South America.
By our Cuban friends research&experience was offered to conduct field research with the AroMed vaporizer. Phyto-therapy, medication with healing plants is widely used and therefore this was only a logical consequence.
Here is an excerpt of a test protocol in a series of studies with patients suffering from heavy, in part chronically, bronchial asthma. Other research is in progress or planned.
Phyto-inhalation treatment using sage and thyme at the Consultorio No. 51 on patients with severe asthmatic complaints.
Tutor: Doctora med. Alina Toledo Brea
Santiago de Cuba 2003
20 patients suffering from severe asthmatic complaints took part in this test from September till December 2003
The test row took place at Armanda Garcia Policlinic Hospital, Consultorio no. 51 in Stgo. de Cuba. [...]
The patients had been divided in two groups, one of them treated with phyto-inhalation, the other one with customary medication.
[...] the experimental group was treated by phyto-inhalation with the AroMed vaporizer. Those patients inhaled dried leaves of sage and thyme at a temperature of 125° to 130° C.
[...] the control group did inhale “Salbutamol” (2cc Salbutamol and 2cc serum physiologicum) with a spray inhalator.
The results obtained enabled the clinical personnel to transpose scientific information into practical use ... transposing the results did allow the development of new administering methods, which again will lead to better findings [...]
Our research disclosed that those asthmatic patients with phyto-inhalation treatment experienced an equal recovery as patients of the control group with conservative medication, but in contrary did not suffer from secondary effects as were observed in the control group [...]
Our aim is to carry on studies for administering forms with the AroMed vaporizer concerning other ailments, as well [...]
... we are member and active supporter of the Association Cannabis as a Medicine.
The Association Cannabis as a Medicine (ACM e.V.) is an organisation for affected patients and laymen headed by the International Association Cannabis as a Medicine (IACM), a scientific society operating worldwide. Dr. Franjo Grotenhermen, affected himself, is the founder and driving force behind both organizations.
A regularly published news letter is distributed for members and interested parties. Information about new progress, about latest levels of research, about the legal situation in different countries, and important hints for affected persons is circulated. This unique and competent information is spread via internet, too: www.cannabis-med.org in several languages.
research&experience always gratefully accesses their data.
Here are some specific symptoms that are recommended administering THC and cannabis products, according to the IACM. In brackets we give the recommended daily dosages. Please note that they are at the most far under the psychoactive level. For the affected patient cannabinoids are by no means hedonistic drugs.
Certainly everyone interested is welcome to become member of either organization: membership subscription is tax-deductible!
Please notice: many authors describe vaporizing as an ‘inhalation technique’. Our non medical practioners and the Cuban University team call it ‘phyto-inhalation’. As in Germany there are more than strict rules, ‘inhalation’ or ‘inhalator’ are only to be used for medically approved equipment. research&experience fights for this approval since quite some time. Till the approbation is not given, we prefer to call the AroMed a vaporizer. Some authors in older articles use aromizer. This is the old name and research&experience is not allowed to use this brand. We just leave it as it is in these articles but replace in mind aromizer with AroMed.
"Beautiful German machine! Now it is a baseless discussion that inhaling marijuana is harmful because of its side products like tars and condensation remains. Now there is a reliable vaporizer for sale."
Dr. Leister Grinspoon, ex Harvard professor, author of "Marijuana Reconsidered" (1971, Cambridge / HARVARD University Press) at the 2nd "No War On Drugs" congress 1999 in Toronto, CAN
"This (AroMed) will help all those, who use THC for medical and health reasons, but for whom smoking does not agree with their bodily conditions. Another advantage: up to no ingredients are lost like when burning them".
