Are you still smoking joints? It's the ritual, I get it. But these are modern times! Here is a quick rundown plus a few reasons to consider the move over to vaping ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
1. What is vaping?
Vaporizers gently heat the herb, rather than burning it, so there is no smoke involved. The vapor is thinner and less flavorful than smoke, but it is more efficient. Keep in mind that the high from vaping can be very different from smoking. It can also take longer to onset and last a little longer. A 2017 meta-review found that “Concretely, vaporizers … may offer potential for reduced health risks, especially concerning respiratory problems.”
2. Safety first
“Vaping” is short for “vaporization” — and commonly refers to a method of cannabis consumption where the user inhales cannabis “vapor” or aerosol. To create this vapor, the active compounds in cannabis are heated at low temperatures. Unlike with smoking cannabis, no combustion or burning takes place at these lower temperatures — so there is no smoke, “the cannabis vaporizer appears to be an ideal harm-reduction approach to safer use,” researchers concluded in 2015.
3. Potentially less toxic
A 2001 study concluded cannabis heated to 200C vaporized THC without creating several carcinogens associated with combustion — benzene, plus toluene and naphthalene.
4. Chic + Discrete
This is my actual Pax, isn't she pretty? Pax has gorgeous and discrete products. This past weekend I bought a Pax Era and had it engraved on site! Be chic + discrete at all costs, ladies.
Pro-tip! Vaporizers sometimes feel like you aren’t getting enough vapor. When using a vaporizer, you often need to draw in the vapor longer and softer than you would if you were smoking. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
