New to Vaping?
There are many reasons so many cannabis users prefer this method. This versatile method allows you to customize your experience and bring the best out of your cannabis. Cannabinoids and terpenes can be released with varying effects depending on temperatures exposed to. This advantage allows for more targeted use.
The reason many turn to vaporizing is for the quick delivery of effects. Smoking can deliver relief, but the side effects of smoking come with it.
Some patients and regular cannabis users will consume marijuana in edible forms for relief that is potent and long-lasting, but marijuana is absorbed slowly in the stomach, unlike the lungs which is instant. Secondly, edibles can be unpredictable–effects can be delayed, long lasting, and the strength unknown.
Vaporizers allow the consumer greater control of the desired effect, and because it works instantly, you won’t have to wait long to feel the benefits.
Unlike smoking where long draws of smoke must be inhaled, vaporizing can be achieved with short and shallow draws. This produces a more clear-headed high without the effects of smoke inhalation influencing the experience.
While each cannabis user will vary, in general, many have found that vaporizing requires smaller doses compared to other methods.
Unlike smoking where combustion takes place, vaping gently heats the herb to release active ingredients. During smoking, the herb is introduced to temperatures reaching upwards of 1,500 degrees Fahrenheit (900 degrees Celsius). At these temperatures several things occur–harmful carbon monoxide, benzene, naphthalene, tars, toluene, and other particulates can be introduced to your lungs.
While there have been no definitive studies on how vaporizing affects the lungs, we can use smaller studies to help us understand the impact. A 2010 study published by the US National Library of Medicine found that regular smokers demonstrated significantly improved lung function after vaporizing for one month.
