While many people have already switched from smoking weed to vaping, there are still great numbers of people who prefer to strike up a traditional joint. That’s great, as we all like to do what we enjoy best, but if you’re a smoker and you haven’t tried vaping, we reckon that you’re missing out.
Why do we say this? There are various reasons we believe that vaping is a step up over smoking – some obvious and others perhaps not so – and this is why weed vaporizers are becoming very popular. We’re going to tell you about three areas in which vaping comes out ahead of smoking: health and safety, the enjoyment factor, and how you affect others in your company.
Why Vaping is Safer
Smoking tobacco – as well as cannabis and other substances – is known to cause cancers, lung disease, and various other deadly diseases that result in the deaths of many people. The main cause of these problems lies with the burning of the substance in the cigarette. This produces carcinogens that are dangerous when inhaled, hence smoking is inherently damaging to your health.
Vaping does not involve any flame or burning; therefore it is free from the production of tar and other substances that are the dangers with smoking. Vaping produces just a cloud of vapor as the dry herbs are atomized, rather than set alight. This is a harmless cloud that is inhaled and is not known to result in diseases. Those with lung problems may feel some effects, but there is no risk of cancer with licenced vape products.
Why Vaping is More Enjoyable
Scientific research has shown that vaping cannabis results in stronger effects than smoking it, and there are good reasons for this. Within the cannabis plant are several compounds, some of which are known as terpenes. These terpenes provide the flavor and some of the effects of smoking a joint.
However, burning destroys some of the terpenes and also has a negative effect on THC – tetrahydrocannabinol – which is the psychoactive element of the plant, the compound that gives you the high you are looking for. With vaping, these terpenes are left in place for fuller flavor, and the THC is delivered in full form. This means you get a stronger and more effective hit from vaping, and a more enjoyable experience using less of your weed.
Why Vaping is Better for Those Around You
As we mentioned above there are proven dangers of smoking that we are mostly well-versed in. So much research has gone into smoking and tobacco, as well as cannabis, that there is no doubt at all most of the dangers come from the fact the substance is burned. However, this does not just stop with the smoker.
The dangers of passive smoking – that of the smoke being inhaled by others near the smoker – are also well-known. This is why smoking of tobacco is now banned in many countries in all public places. Smoking has also become less socially acceptable as result and those you are in company with may object to you smoking dry herb products close to them.
With vaping it’s a different story. The vape cloud is not harmful as it contains no contaminants or toxins, and while your friends may prefer you vape away from them, they will not object so much to your vaping as it does not harm them. Also, they will not be affected by their clothes smelling of cannabis when they’ve been around you!
Vaping is safer, more efficient and effective, and also more socially acceptable than smoking, so why not try it and see how you get on?
