4 Reasons Vaporizing Is Better Than Smoking

Vaporizers are usually more expensive than bongs or pipes, but there are a lot of reasons why many people decide to switch.

The options of weed consumption are vast. Smoking joints, using water bongs and pipes, taking edibles are the most popular ways to use medical marijuana. However, many doctors believe that vaporizers are the best way to consume cannabis.

Here are four reasons why both doctors and patients choose vaporizers.

Vaporizers Eliminate Harmful Toxins

Although smoking weed is less harmful than tobacco, the smoke created by burning cannabis has a wide range of the same toxins. Vaporizers do not burn marijuana; they just heat it to a high temperature that is necessary for evaporating the active ingredients, preventing the production of the harmful smoke.

Vaporizers Are Healthier for the Lungs

Recent studies prove that even one month of vaporizing cannabis instead of smoking it can lead to significant improvements in lung health. Patients who used vaporizer showed better lung function; moreover, such dreadful symptoms as shortness of breath and coughing up phlegm disturbed them much less frequently.

However, there is still a need in profound and long-term studies that can prove that vaporizers are safe for your lungs.

Vaporizers Provide Faster Relief

Many patients prefer to take weed in the form of edibles but face the problem of correct and suitable dosing. Pot is absorbed much slower by the stomach than the lungs, which causes a delay in the needed effects of up to one hour. At the same time, lungs absorb cannabinoids in a few seconds, providing an almost immediate relief for those who vaporize cannabis. Moreover, vaporizers can give patients better control over dosing; you can stop vaporizing once the needed effect is achieved.

Vaporizers Cause Fewer Side Effects

In a large study of medical cannabis users, vaporizers demonstrated the highest level of satisfaction when it came to side effects: vaporizing was said to provide a clearer high. Moreover, many patients found vaporizing to be the most efficient way of weed intake.

The effects of marijuana differ from person to person, so vaporizers may not be the perfect solution for everyone. Consulting a doctor is still the best way for you to find the most suitable method of consuming marijuana.
