1. It’s healthier than lighting up a joint.
Let’s forget for a minute the nasty habit of mixing cannabis with tobacco, and concentrate solely on the difference between smoking a pure joint and vaping.
Even though preliminary research has shown that smoking cannabis is less harmful than smoking tobacco, smoking weed still involves combustion, inhaling hot air, ash particles and other plant material, which can cause irritation or worst case, inflammation of the lungs.
The combustion of any biological material creates harmful chemical compounds like carbon dioxide, polynuculear aromatic hydrocarbons, organic pollutants or in the case of improper combustion, carbon monoxide. With vaporization, you only inhale the good stuff like cannabinoids and terpenes. For that same reason, your weed will also taste better.
Lastly, some studies have shown there might be signs that vaporizing even reduces existing respiratory problems for some individuals. We are waiting for the results of further testing and studies on this subject, but they are positive signs for the future.
