Cannabis, what was once a sketchy, back-alley production has now become more acceptable in the public spotlight after its legalization of that plant for recreational use in some countries Over the past few decades, where cigarette smokers have taken to the use of vape pens for their daily dose of nicotine, regular users of the cannabis have also discovered that vaping is a healthier and less smelly way of getting high.
It started to become a practice when portable vape pens were made for refillable oil canisters created for liquid nicotine hits. But with marijuana, the CO2 oil often used in the pens creates a different sort of high, and one that can be much more potent than smoking a few flowers.
WHAT IS VAPING?
The process of Vaporizing or ‘vaping’ involves placing raw cannabis or THC oil in a pen or plug-in device. A vape pen is a devise that is used for this process which is used to vaporize the active ingredients of the plant usually cannabis, tobacco or other herbs and blends used for inhalation.
The dry cannabis or oil is heated to a temperature cooler than the point of combustion, which then turns the product into a vapor. What this clearly means is that the user doesn’t inhale smoke, but vapor instead.
A RESPIRATORY RELIEF
There are a number of studies that have shown vaping in general to be a healthier alternative to smoking. Cannabis can be safer when a vape pen is used and may decrease certain respiratory symptoms that occur when consumed by other methods, such as pipes or joints.
Since the biggest risk of smoking t is the herb is smoke itself, which contains the same kind of cancer-causing chemicals as cigarette smoke, studies have shown that cannabis users regularly report breathing easier after switching to vapes. This is because unlike smoke from the joint, the vapor itself is a lot cleaner.
Using vaping pens appears to be much safer, because of reduced carbon monoxide intake, fewer toxic hydrocarbons and lower temperatures. It gives you what you want without all the nasty stuff you don’t.
Depending on the form of cannabis that one wants to consume there are 3 distinct categories of vape pens available. There are dry herb vape pens for those who prefer to use the herb in the dry leaf form, vape juice pens for those who use cannabis essential oil extracts and then there are wax or dab pens.
