There’s a ton of reasons to consider making the switch from combustion to vaporization, but it can appear pretty daunting to newcomers trying to find the perfect weed vaporizer for their personal preferences and needs. If you somehow haven’t caught wind of this quickly growing trend across the world, this article will explain it to you and hopefully inspire you to consider making the change in your lifestyle.
Why Is Smoking So Much Worse?
When you combust plant matter, it is being broken down so entirely that a lot of extra harmful particles are being released as well. Burning herb releases THC but a whole lot of tar and toxins as well which come hand in hand with combustion. The big difference when vaporizing weed instead is that the herb is brought to a specific temperature which transforms the key ingredients into vapor without burning away all the plant matter into ash. By heating up the herb, cannabinoids and terpenes are brought to a boiling point and released as vapor before combustion occurs. As a result, there are much less harmful toxins when vaping, and there is virtually no tar at all.
But Can It Really Get Me High?
Yes, absolutely. As long as you vape at a temperature above 370 degrees fahrenheit that is. A lot of weed vaporizers these days allow you to control the temperature, and some people enjoy a little vape session or two without getting high. By heating your herb only to 350 degrees fahrenheit you can vaporize certain terpenes without vaporizing THC to avoid getting stoned. Besides that, vaping can definitely get you just as high as a joint can, but a vapor high tends to creep up much slower. Since THC reacts in varied ways with different cannabinoids, vaping different strains at different temperatures can yield some interesting results. This is definitely something worth experimenting with if you want to enjoy different kinds of sessions for different reasons.
Try Before Buying
Make sure you at least give vaporizers a test run before buying one for yourself. See if you like the high and the flavor, because I’ve known many people to buy a vape for the health benefits, but they just couldn’t get used to it so it ended up collecting dust on a shelf sadly.
