Smoking marijuanaSmoking Vs. Vaporizing Cannabis

Depending on one’s experience within the realm of cannabis consumption, some may never have heard of vaporizing.

Vaporizing is a common technique for consuming marijuana, while at the same time negating many irritating respiratory toxins that exists within the grown marijuana flower and are released when smoked. Conversely, vaporizing allows one to get at all of the psychoactive ingredients available within that specific strain of marijuana , minus the combustion that ordinarily takes place during consumption.

The basic design of the average marijuana vaporizer is to allow marijuana smokers to inhale the many active Cannabinoids, while at the same time avoiding any of the harmful elements that may exist on that specific flower… although invisible to the naked eye.

While most don’t know it … There is a vast difference in the quality of smoke that one receives when they vaporize versus igniting their plant matter. When one smokes a joint, or hits their bong approximately 88% of the combusted smoke gases contain non-cannabinoid elements, most of which do not get you high and provide potential health risks.

Conversely when one uses a marijuana vaporizer the smoke/gases that they are inhaling consists of approximately 95% cannabinoids, otherwise known as the psychoactive ingredients that both calm the mind and soothe the body.

    Just bought a crafty recently and it is amazing. The only concern I have is about the smell. If I vape outside, walking down a street, how noticeable would the smell be? Also how about if I vape in my small apartment with windows closed (as people who live above sometimes have theirs open)?

      Not very. I did it the first time this morning, in the house, with others around and there was virtually NO smoke and no smell. Only what is in your mouth was high taste. Was brilliant! Give it a go.

    Hello people, i started to think about buying vape, any recomendations? Another question is.. does the vape change the taste of the the herb in compare with smoking? Sorry to all grammar nazis for my bad english

      Depends on what you need, portable i would take the crafty or mighty. Desktop the vulcano. Taste changes, just like this article states. You loose all of the combustion particles but the vapor sure tastes like weed, but a bit more ‘pure’

    So why have I spent three weeks, three hundred bucks and five grams of herb to get my pax 2 to do anything. At best I can get the eq. of three or four draws out of a full bowl (.33 gram) using all heat settings. Everybody raves about this thing. Doesn’t work for me. I think the whole vape thing could be a conspiracy after my experience with Ploom. “Your not supposed to see anything, you’re not supposed to feel anything that’s why it’s healthier for you!” Yeah sure. Don’t fall for it.

      Vaporizers work. I use a cheap version called CloudV. Works fine. Gets me super high.

      Vapes are a whole different experience. If you are using a dry herb vape and expecting the same cloud and lung irritation as a smoking that is the issue. Trust me, vapes work and you really need to get used to the lack of visual and coughing cues telling you its working. The first time I used a real vape I thought the same thing. Until I realized I vaped way too much and I was spinning and drooling on myself. Also the stone is a lot different. You don’t get so lazy because you weren’t sitting there for 30 minutes replacing your oxygen with Carbon monoxide and Carbon dioxide.
