What's the Difference Between Vaping & Smoking Marijuana, Airway Heights, Washington

In recent years, it has become increasingly common for both medical and recreational marijuana users to use vape devices. If you are still using traditional accessories to smoke the plant, it might be beneficial for you to learn about this new process. The guide below will highlight the differences between the two methods and why more and more people are making the swap.

How Does Smoking & Vaping Work?

When smoking marijuana, the plant is lit on fire to change it from a solid state to a vapor. This releases the active Tetrahydrocannabinol — THC — ingredient. However, there is no control over the heat of the flame during this process, which leads to burned particles also making their way into the body.

Vape devices give the user more control over the temperature when heating cannabis. This allows them to remain below the threshold for combustion and reduce the release of toxic compounds. However, it is important for the individual to know the specific temperature for the type of marijuana they are using, as the temperature can range from 220 degrees to 451 degrees. Also, when used for medical purposes, knowing the vaporizing temperature for different compounds is necessary to produce the desired results.

How Does a Vape Device Improve Marijuana Use?

vapesAlthough there is still much to be learned about these marijuana accessories, people are already reporting benefits to swapping from traditional smoke products. In a 2014 study, users reported a better taste, no smoke smell, and an improved effect. Medical respiratory patients, who are easily irritated by smoke, have also found they can receive relief when using a vaping device without any of the irritation.

Since these devices are also heavily used by those looking to quit cigarettes, they offer a level of privacy for marijuana users. New purchasers also find using these tools much easier than traditional smoking because the same level of inhalation is not required.
