Firstly, Vaping is not smokingEcigs / Vaping is intended for current adult smokers , that wish to continue enjoying their nicotine habit at a reduced risk. Vaping utilizes a Propylene Glycol or Vegetable Glycerin based liquid, mixed with small amounts of nicotine and food grade flavoring that then get vaporized in a small battery powered atomizer, Simulating the experience of smoking. The vapor created is inhaled and exhaled much like cigarette smoke hence the term “VAPING” as opposed to “SMOKING” Vaping is not proven 100% safe.
Although there are now more promising studies out there like the Clearstream study, and IVAQS. Additionally Dr Farsalinos has dedicated a lot of time and money into studying the effects of e-liquid and vaping on his website ecigarette-research.com and even more recently Public Health England has officially stated that “Vaping is 95% safer than smoking”Inhaling smoke, from anything, has its drawbacks. Burning material releases carbon monoxide, hydrocarbons, tars, and more. Even with the medical benefits of cannabis, the smoke irritates the lungs, causing coughing, or potentially bronchitis.
Vaping emits the terpenes from cannabis at the perfect temperature. The result is cleaner, more distinct flavors without the burned aftertaste.The vaping experience is so much smoother and more pleasurable than smoking. Forget coughing, bothersome odors, cleaning a bowl out, or spilling bong water. It’s faster, easier, and cleaner.Certainly feel free to do your own homework regarding things like PG / VG and nicotine and decide for yourself if vaping is a road you want to go down. I can categorically say that after 7 years of being tobacco free myself. I have never felt better. Do you know what makes an e-cig?
Keep in mind that vaping and electronic cigarettes are not designed to be 100% safe. They are tobacco harm reduction. As I said above, they are designed for adults to continue enjoying nicotine at a reduced harm.Additionally while not categorized as a carcinogen nicotine (in it’s pure raw form) is still essentially a poison and can increase blood pressure and heart rate in humans. So please be careful and use at your own risk.
Lighting a joint or smoking a bowl in public isn’t exactly ideal. But you can discreetly enjoy cannabis just about anywhere with a vaporizer. No one will assume it has pot in it when nicotine vaping is everywhere. And with so many flavors out there, it has become commonplace.
