While smoking marijuana has not been directly associated with any harmful pulmonary effects, the presence of tar and other substances rolls such as blunts make it more likely to cause irritation of the airways leading to disease conditions such as chronic bronchitis. However, with the introduction of vaping and vaporizers, the unnecessary risks associated with marijuana smoking will soon be a thing of the past.

To many people, vaping seems a recent trend. However, this is not the case as there is written evidence suggesting that ancient Egyptian used vaporizers made from stone. The idea of e-cigarette was started by Joseph Thompson in 1927. Herbert Gilbert patented the first electronic cigarette in 1963. Termed smokeless cigarette, this e-cigarette by Herbert was responsible for an upswing in the popularity of vaping. The first modern e-cigarette came into existence in the year 2003, produced by Chinese firm Hon Lik.
