Vaping has become so popular in recent years that even the most experienced cannabis users have switched to vaping. Vaping has many benefits over smoking a joint or a blunt. It is growing in popularity as a way of using cannabis.
The cannabis plant itself has a lot of medical potentials, especially with its CBD component; we cannot avoid the facts anymore. Here are some of the reasons why you should consider vaping instead of smoking cannabis.
1. You Will Avoid Harmful Substances
Smoking is dangerous and harmful for health and the respiratory system. We are not going to talk about the danger of smoking cigarettes (which each contain thousands of harmful chemicals). Instead, we are going to focus on joints.
When it comes to smoking cannabis, the opinions are divided even in the scientific circles. Some researchers say smoking a joint is equivalent to smoking 20 cigarettes, while others have proved long-term casual cannabis smoking has no harm to the lungs.
Either way, whenever there are smoke and fire involved, there’s tar and other harmful substances which we all would like to avoid. Because of the combustion, more than 100 substances are being released including some toxins.
This is the reason a growing number of users are choosing to vape over smoking. If you put a high CBD strain into your vaporizer, the device produces the vapor by evenly heating the ground material. And the result is a vapor rich in cannabinoids and terpenes which you can enjoy without worrying about the damage to the lungs.
2. It’s Discreet
Cannabis is a very aromatic herb thanks to the substances known as terpenes. Even the high-CBD containing strains have a unique and very recognizable smell, especially when it is lit up.
Vaporizers produce the smell too, but it’s hardly noticeable compared to joints and blunts. Sometimes it takes hours to get the smell of cannabis out of a room, while it takes no more than 10 minutes for aromatic vapor to disappear from a closed space. This is because vapor dissipates in the air much faster than smoke can.
Since vaping is almost an odorless experience, it’s perfect to use in public places.
The Bottom Line: Vaping Is Efficient
In the long term, vaping is a very efficient way to save money and cannabis as well. Yes, vape cartridges are not cheap, but they will pay for themselves in just a few months.
By vaping you’ll use less cannabis for an effective dose. Depending on the vaporizer itself, the chambers can fit at least 0.2, which is definitely less than the amount you need for rolling a joint.
Also, while smoking a joint, cannabis burns so much faster, wasting it for practically nothing. On the other hand, the vaporizer will make the most of your cannabis stash by producing the vapor without any burning. You get all the benefits without wasting any from burning your product.
Overall, vaping cannabis is a more pleasant, healthier and effective way to consume your medicine without harming your body and health in general. Although it might seem like a big investment at first, when our health is in question, every penny is worth it.
With close to two decades of successful stint in the Media industry, I felt I was surely missing a piece in my life puzzle. I took a break and set out to seek the purpose of my life. I travelled, lived out of a suitcase, let things flow into life without resisting, and after five challenging years, I found my rhythm. I love to write about Cannabis and Health and try my best to simplify esoteric concepts into simple ideas for life.
