PubMed Commons is an experimental system of commenting on PubMed abstracts, introduced in October 2013. Comments are displayed on the abstract page, but during the initial closed pilot, only registered users can read or post comments. Any researcher who is listed as an author of an article indexed by PubMed is entitled to participate in the pilot. If you would like to participate and need an invitation, please email, giving the PubMed ID of an article on which you are an author. For more information, see the PubMed Commons FAQ.

Which vaporizer was used for the studies?

I couldn't seem to find any information in this article that describes which vaporizer in particular was used for these studies. I believe this is an important factor, because different vaporizers will produce different results. This question is being addressed in vaporizer articles from a large vaporizer store.

Did you find anyone in your study exhibit symptoms of excessive sweating. I have smoked Cannabis for more than 20 years. I smoked Cannabis like people smoke cigarettes, from morning till night and now I get hot flushes and do not know what I can do about it. I was wondering if anyone in your study had experienced this and what they have done about it.
