How does the device work?

Pour water into inhaler chamber (optional). Fill slider pipe with medical cannabis, set slider pipe within inhaler chamber. Thread top cap with coil to the top of the inhaler. Inhale through the glass mouthpiece.  The coil attached to the base cap heats up the medical cannabis, similar to lighting it with a lighter. Then the smoke fills the chamber and is inhaled through the glass mouth piece. If water is used, the coil simultaneously heats up the medical cannabis and also heats up the liquid into very fine smoke which can then be inhaled through the glass mouth piece.

How will it impact healthcare?

The MCI device solves the appearance of taking medical cannabis. Rather than appearing to be taking a smoke, users will inhale medicine as if it were a device similar to inhalers for asthma.
