1.) Long Term Health Benefits
It is true that smoking anything is probably not good for your health, however As Truth on Pot Explains, "the combustion of marijuana still produces several known carcinogens and tar, which can irritate the lungs and lead to chronic bronchitis. Vaporizers were mainly designed to overcome this issue. By heating marijuana at a lower temperature than combustion, the devices produce an inhalable vapor that still contains the active medical ingredients in marijuana (cannabinoids), but without the harmful by-products.
Vaporizing cannabis is said to remove approximately 95 percent of the smoke that is inhaled.
Here’s a handy chart that breaks down why vaping is better than smoking further:
Vaporizing has also been suggested to increase the yield of anti-inflammatory terpenoids that protect the lungs from irritation.
2.) It’s Discreet
We have all been in the situation where you want to find a little relief but the public rebuke keeps you from it. The E-pens and Vaporizers are making that a thing of the past. Now it is easier than ever to take a hit while being out and about while keeping your social camouflage. Some of the higher end vapes can make it possible to smoke in a crowd with absolutely no smell!
3.) It Is More Cost efficient
Again, as Truth On Pot explains, “a collaborative study conducted by California NORML and MAPS found that vaporizers could convert 46 percent of available THC into vapor, whereas the average marijuana joint converted less than 25 percent of THC. Likewise, patients ranked vaporizers as the most efficient method of marijuana intake — requiring a lower dose than smoking, edibles, and tea — in a recent study published in the Journal of Psychoactive Drugs.”
4.) Flavor Profiles Are More Complex
Some people say vaporized weed tastes like burnt popcorn (maybe towards the end after you burn it to a crisp), but I’ve noticed that using a vape I can really taste the “flavor notes” of marijuana more. Likely because I’m not burning the weed to a crisp before it passing my taste buds. The vaporizers, oil and wax pens preserve the flavor profiles significantly better so it just tastes that much cleaner, clearer, and better
5.) The High is Better
If you are not yet convinced with the other reasons then how about this; the majority of people that have vaporized cannabis or used an oil pen have experienced longer and stronger highs. I mean, isn’t that the point after all
