As many states have legalized recreational and medicinal marijuana, the biggest
concern is to find out the health risks associated with it. Vaping weed is the most popular
alternative to smoking. Vaporization is the process that involves heating the dry herb at a specific
temperature below the point of combustion. There is a lot of steam or vapor which is inhaled
through the mouth.
Smoking weed or anything produces tar and other matter which is very harmful to our body. No
matter what kind of devices you are using – joint, pipe, or ten-foot bong, they all rely on
combustion, causing it to release the harmful chemicals. Not much research has been conducted
on this, but anecdotal studies suggest that vaping nicotine is 95% safer than smoking cigarettes.
However, vaping is a better alternative to smoking because of many reasons. Vaping offers a
more pronounced flavor than smoking. You can taste the individual terpenes and cannabinoid
more distinctly than smoking. Vaporizers have heat control settings that give you control over
the temperature, which is absent in smoking.
Vaporizers let you extract the cannabinoids more efficiently than smoking. You can also use
already vaped bud to create tea and edibles. As vaping doesn’t require an open flame, it is less
harmful to health than smoking. Additionally, as vaping smells are a lot less than smoke, it is
much discreet than smoking.
