Vaping has gained popularity over the last years as many people are switching to vaping. Even though vaping is still being studied and its long-term effects still being researched, vaping is believed to be a much healthier and better alternative to smoking. So what is vaping, and what are its benefits? Find out below.
What is vaping?
Vaping is the conversion of solid or liquid material into vapor form through the process of heating. The heating methods used by vaping are convection and conduction that heat the dry or liquid materials to an optimal temperature that is just below the combustion point. This heating of materials releases flavors in vapor form.
Studies and researches so far suggest that vaping is a safer and better option as compared to smoking. If you are planning to switch to vaping, then here are the reasons why you are making the right decision.
Vaping is safer and healthier than smoking. Vaporizers are manufactured such that they release clean and smoother vapors, thus providing a better experience. Since vaping heat materials to a point just below combustion, no smoke is released, and thus, there are lesser irritants and toxins being produced. Moreover, smoke contains a high quantity of carcinogens and tar that is related to respiratory problems like lung cancer. So switching to vaping lowers the risk and adverse health effects.
More efficient and effective
Smoking is inefficient when it comes to getting all the ingredients. Since active compounds are sensitive, half of them are lost before you take a puff after you burn a cigarette, and more of them are lost in between. On the other hand, vaporization is effective as lower temperatures are needed to release flavors, and they are released gradually.
This makes them much more bioavailable. The vapors are cleaner and more powerful. Moreover, if you are looking for rapid effects, then vaping is for you. It provides immediate effects and lasts longer (2-3hours). Hence, it provides a really smooth, great vaping experience.
The aromatic compounds found in cannabis are terpenes. These flavorful compounds are heat sensitive. So they are lost due to the high temperatures of combustion. However, with vaping, you can set lower temperatures and experience the flavors of terpenes easily. Starting from low to high temperature, you can experience all the flavors of various aromatic compounds found in the material.
Vaping is a discreet means of inhaling vapors. As the vapors are odorless and disperse rapidly, they can easily be used anywhere. Some are small that can fit into pockets and so are easy to carry and use.
You can decide the intensity you want. If you want strong and potent flavor and effects, then you can adjust at higher temperatures. Whereas if you want calming effects, you can adjust your vape at lower temperatures.
Vaporization converts almost half of the material to vapor, while smoking only converts a quarter of it. This means that for vaporization a lesser amount of cannabis is needed to enjoy the experience. This makes vaping a much more cost-effective option.
So if you are considering other options than smoking, then vaping is a good option for you. It is healthier, more efficient and effective, much more cost-effective, and provides a more flavorful and discreet experience.
