As the cannabis market continues to mature, more people are beginning to think of cannabis as a medicinal plant with a wide variety of helpful and therapeutic uses. Although it’s sold recreationally in Washington, some customers prefer their cannabis strictly for pain relief, as a sleep aid, or as an alternative to traditional medication, as opposed to something for fun. To address this preference, the research team at Sticky Budz, a producer in Yakima County, developed a product they’re releasing this spring: the Evohaler. The state’s first legal cannabis inhaler is a pressurized dose device containing pharmaceutical-grade cannabis product. Each puff provides a precise, measured dose, not unlike an asthma inhaler. Currently there are a few cannabis inhalers available in other states, but this is the first in the Evergreen State. What makes the Evohaler unique from other cannabis delivery methods is that it can easily be used for microdosing throughout the day and it provides instantaneous results. Due to the viability of the throat and how the inhaler works, the cannabis enters the bloodstream immediately and each dose has the same potency and effect. There is no smoke, no smell, and no taste. And because very little of the product dissipates or is exhaled, you can medicate without exposing others to second-hand smoke or vapor. “The Evohaler is a clean product that fills a need, not a want,” said Jamie Muffett, CEO for MLM Distributing. “Our team at Sticky Budz is very proud of this product, which is produced and manufactured right here in Washington.“ He called the Evohaler a “revolutionary route of administration for unsurpassed convenience to medicate with THC.” “It’s scientifically formulated and technologically advanced, and permits precision metered micro-dosing for complete quantized puff control,” Muffett said. “The Evohaler provides a safe alternative, compared to traditionally burning cannabis, giving superior bioavailability by preventing thermal decomposition, which allows your body to absorb the unadulterated properties of the THC.” Muffett said the Evohaler could be perfect for someone who may have heard of the pain-relieving benefits associated with cannabis and CBD, but is scared to try edibles (an unreliable cannabis delivery method that can also take hours to take effect, and doesn’t want to smoke or vape. “When smoking or vaping cannabis, combustion takes place, which causes a chemical reaction that can provide anxiety or other side effects. Because there is no combustion involved with the Evohaler, those types of side effects are eliminated, so you can function with clarity.”
