What if I told you (in my best late-night infomercial voice) that you could get more bang for your buck when you smoke? What about if I said that I knew a way to get higher and healthier at the same time? Well, if you're tired of your pothead friends knocking over your bong only to leave you cleaning up old stinky bong water by yourself, or if you're tired of getting in a situation where you're ready to roll a joint only to realize you're out of paper, then pay attention: If you haven't given it much thought before, think about vaporizing now.
Vaping cannabis pretty much gets rid of some cons of smoking or ingesting marijuana. Smoking marijuana exposes the user to carcinogens and tar. It can also irritate your lungs. Vaporizers use a current of heated air, usually around 200°C or 392°F, to vaporize the active ingredients in cannabis without combustion (burning the plant matter). Basically, all that vaping does is convert the cannabinoids to a vapor that can be inhaled as you would normally smoke.
When you use a vaporizer, you get rid of 95% of the smoke you would normally inhale. With the loss of so much smoke, you get much more of the stuff you really want like THC and traces of cannabinol, CBN. It's also been said that vaporizing increases the yield of anti-inflammatory terpenoids that calm the brain, reduce inflammation, and help alleviate lung irritation.
Not only does normal smoking of weed eliminate some of the good cannabinoids, but it also reduces the effects of the herb. When you smoke it, the cannabinoid molecules deteriorate into free radicals along with the other plant molecules. When tests were done to compare the same amount of weed smoked and vaporized, the user got 46% of the available THC into vapor. On the other hand, your typical joint only converted less than 25% of THC. This means that you get higher with less weed when you use a vaporizer than when you smoke it. Even though it may seem that buying a vaporizer is expensive and more of a luxury thing, it is actually more economical.
Another pro to vaporizing is that it offers an alternative to those who do not want to smoke and have trouble finding marijuana edibles that suit their diet. As 1 in every 11 people has diabetes, and most marijuana edibles are high in sugar, they cannot eat them on a daily basis. Vaporizers offer them a sugar-free and calorie-free replacement.
Besides the aforementioned health benefits, I think we can all agree that we are also interested in whether the side effects of using a vaporizer or smoking are the same. Will you get a different feeling of high when you use a vaporizer? The answer is yes but in a good way. Vaporizers were ranked highest in side effect satisfaction. Users felt more functional after vaping than smoking. This clear-headed high could be due to the fact that there was no smoke, so fewer bad pollutants. Another reason is that you don't have to inhale deeply with large quantities entering your lungs. Small puffs are possible with a vaporizer. This is a big plus for the newbie users who aren't used to smoking.
When shopping for a vaporizer, you will come across a wide variety. You will find small, battery-powered vaporizers that are great for on-the-go. Other vaporizers are bigger ones you plug into an outlet, meant for home use. At first, you might find that some of them look like an alien spaceship with a large plastic bag attached. I know this can be very intimidating, but after 1 try you won't look back. Either way, they will give you the benefit of using a vaporizer. It's all about what works best for you.
Choose from normal herb, liquids, or concentrates
Another difference between vaping and smoking is that you can choose whether to use normal herb, liquids, or concentrates. If you're still not using a vaporizer full time, then vaping normal herb may be best as you can switch between rolling a joint or using your vaporizer. Otherwise, you can choose a liquid or concentrate to ease your particular ailment. Luckily for all you indecisive people, there are also vaporizers that claim to be an all-in-one. That means you can vape whatever you want using the same vaporizer, whether it is a normal herb, liquid, or concentrate.
