What is vaping?
Vaping is the act of inhaling and exhaling water vapor produced by an electric device called a vaporizer. Essentially, vaping is the heating of cannabis without burning it. Vaporizers heat cannabis to temperatures below the burning/combustion point which releases vapor with the same physical and mental effects as smoking. Below we talk about a few of the many benefits of vaping cannabis.
Should you vape cannabis?
- Though not completely without its health risks, vaping is still much safer and better for you than smoking is. For example since combustion does not occur, smoke is not created and thus easier on and healthier for your lungs. Which can be ideal for medical patients with breathing problems. Most of the harmful effects from cannabis is due to inhaling of the smoke (carcinogens, tar and etc) So nearly all of the health issues and problems associated with cannabis use can be avoided by vaping it instead.
