Since vaporizers first came about there has been a huge decline in cigarette smokers. That’s because they can get that same nicotine hit they need without all of the harmful health effects. What’s more, vaporizers have enabled smokers to wean off cigarettes and even quit smoking altogether.
That’s not to say vaping is healthy. After all, you’re still ingesting chemicals into your lungs. But you don’t get all of the toxic additives that are in cigarettes which have been shown to severely impact your health.
So if you’re thinking about switching from cigarettes to vaporizers, this article will show you why it is the preferred choice and how it can benefit your health.
The Dangers of Smoking Cigarettes
We all know that smoking is terrible for your health. While it damages every organ in the body, it is attributed to about 90% of all lung cancer deaths. That’s not even including the increased risk of strokes, heart disease, impotency, immune malfunction, and other cancers. To put it bluntly, smoking cigarettes is a sure way to painful existence and an early grave.
Enter the Vaporizer
While still ongoing, research finds vaping to be much less harmful than cigarettes. With e-liquids, they don’t contain any of the additives and toxins that tobacco has, and are mostly made with nicotine, glycerine, and flavourings. Many people have found them to be a great replacement to cigarettes, even helping them to quit the habit.
Vaporizing Dry Herbs
Tobacco itself is like a dry herb, and this can be vaped too. And while there are cannabis-infused e-liquids available, many tokers are switching the joint for a dry herb vaporizer. After all, a joint still contain tobacco, and with a roach instead of a filter, it can be even worse for you.
This is why dry herb vaporizers are getting more and more popular. Aside from it being healthier, it has many other benefits too. For starters, you get a smoother, cleaner taste, allowing you to experience different strain flavors. It uses less herb each session too as you’re not burning it, only heating it to activate the cannabinoids. So it’s more economical.
And when you finish vaping your favourite herb, you can still use what’s left over to make edibles. This is known as ABV (already been vaped) where the cannabinoids have already been activated, so eating it without having to infuse it in fat, still has a big effect.
Should You Switch to a Vaporizer?
Whether you’re a cigarette smoker or a weed smoker, there are many benefits to ditching your tobacco and picking up a vaporizer instead. For starters, it’s much better for your health as you heat rather than burn. Then you’ve got the added benefits of less smell, enjoyable taste, and saving money as you use less.
The jury is still out on how healthy it is to vape as opposed to smoke, but current research does indicate vaping to be a lot safer. So if you’re looking to quit smoking, or looking to get a little more out of your smoke sessions, a vaporizer is the way to go. And when you do, you’ll wonder how you ever lived without it.
