By November 10, 2021 No Comments

If you’re new to the weed world and unaware of its consumption, you might be feeling a little overwhelmed by knowing the variety available in weed from Khalifa Kush, super lemon haze AA to plenty of other flavors and in between the different ways to consume it.

Subjected to the preferences,  it can be munched in a variety of ways. It can be consumed through drinks or baked edibles, with rolling papers, in the form of pills, through pipes, and of course, with a vaporizer which is on the rise and popular among adults for consuming cannabis.

Vaping Is A Choice Of Many

According to research, 364 adults were asked how they would prefer to consume cannabis and 53% responded that vaporizer is their choice.

Although there are various methods available as well, selecting the right one is a difficult decision to make. However, if we talk about vaporizers, you can weigh the pros and cons and then know if it is a better alternative.

Pros Of Vaping

The danger of smoking anything, whether it is tobacco or cigarettes is well known.  So it is not surprising that people are more inclined to vape instead of taking weeds through pipes or rolling paper.

When you smoke, you inhale extremely harmful particles that irritate the delicate tissue in your lungs and some of which are toxic compounds that cause chemical reactions and have been linked to cancer.

Vaporizing does not burn the particles and turn them into smoke, instead, they heat the material containing THC which turns into vapors and eventually has a smoother feel on the lungs.

There are some of the other benefits of vaping that includes:

No combustion: One of the main benefits of using vaporizers is that they do not cause combustion. No burning and no inhaling of hot and harmful debris. It also does not burn THC instead it heats them and you can still have amounts of THC in the aerosol produced by the vaporizer.

Does Not create mess: consuming weed with other methods such as rolling papers which produce ashes and burnt pieces of paper creates a mess. With a vaporizer, there is no smoke and no fire, and eventually no mess. It also doesn’t waste even a little amount of cannabis as compared to pipes and joints and requires a very little amount of cannabis to get the desired effect.

Easy to use: it is the easiest method of smoking weed. It requires very few steps. All you need to do is have a vaporizer, charge it and load it with a small amount of herb.

Onhand thing: you can use a vaporizer in public places where cigarettes and other smoking methods are not tolerable. You can use it in parks, outside of the workplace, or at home. It is more accessible as compared to any other method.

Cons Of Vaping

When you are vaping weed, you are not only inhaling the THC compounds this method uses a wide range of ingredients to cast THC and create an aerosol and add flavor. All of those ingredients harm the delicate tissues and air sacs in the lungs. For example, vaporizers are made of heavy metal which becomes weak and breaks down over time and mixed into the aerosol and other carcinogenic compounds that are used to make the vapor are potentially dangerous and cancer-causing compounds.

Final words

Consuming weed with a vaporizer might seem less harmful than other methods but it is not harmless at all. Although it does not expose you to more harmful toxic ingredients such as chemical processes during combustion, more research is needed to completely understand the health risks and benefits associated with vaping and if it is the safest way to consume weed or not.
