It’s a revolution. Vaporization has become the go-to method of ingesting cannabis, nicotine, and even vitamin supplements. As people become wise to the health risks associated with combustion of these products, they are switching over in droves. Here’s why:
Vaping cuts down the harmful lung effects from Smoking
Smoke is already by nature, a lung-irritant. Vaporization actually in a sense “steams” your bud or your oil until it turns to a vapor. Studies have shown patients breathing much easier after using a vaporizer rather than smoking a joint. Vapor contains virtually none of the harsh toxins found in smoke. As a result of vaporizing, only a faint herb odor will be emitted with your exhalations. Ultimately, granting the user a much more discreet way to medicate.
As a result of the lack of combustion involved in the process, you’ll be able to capture roughly 80-95% of your THC content. Whilst in smoking, you’ll be burning and denaturing parts of the plant while you’re ingesting. The by product of vaped weed is known around the industry as AVB or “Already Vaped Bud”. The AVB will have a toasted or browner color appearance and still has THC content left in it, as opposed to ash being the by-product of smoking. If you’re vaping oils or other concentrates, the resin that is left behind, still has THC content in it.
Through a vaporizer, you’ll be able to use about 10-30% less herb than by smoking through pipes, bongs, and joints. Because you are using less of the plant, you can control your dosage a bit more. The biggest benefit, in my opinion, to vaping over smoking is that after you are done vaping, you can use the remains in edibles. The remains will activate once again after baking them. This means you have effectively used the same herb twice. You simply cannot beat that bang for your buck.
