BALTIMORE -- A new study suggests that vaping marijuana may have a stronger effect compared to smoking it.

Researchers at Johns Hopkins University studied 17 adults who were not regular users.

The participants experienced adverse side effects after smoking and vaping marijuana containing THC, the drug’s main ingredient.

However, the side effects were worse after vaping, and there was also a higher concentration of THC in the participants’ blood.

Vaping has often been associated with less exposure to the toxins compared to the more traditional methods of smoking pot.

The study was conducted by researchers at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine and published in JAMA Network Open.
