Vaping is a new term used to describe the process of using a vaporizer. Vaporizers heat the Cannabinoids from the cannabis plant to a temperature which releases a vapour, but below the point of combustion. This produces a vapour which is rich in THC and other cannabinoids, but doesn’t contain any tar. The idea is that you get all of the beneficial effects of smoking marijuana without some of the harmful effects such as tar and carbon monoxide.
A cannabis vaporiser heats cannabis to a temperature between 100C and 210C. At this temperature cannabinoids boil off, while at higher temperatures (such as when burning) they burn off and toxins such as carbon monoxide are released.
Newer technology systems such as ‘vapor pens’, use special cartridge’s containing pre-measured doses of cannabis oil or wax with added flavouring and sometimes nicotine. These can be purchased online or in most head shops over the counter and operate by either heating flame free (flint) or with an electric heating element (Kandy pen).
The main advantages of vaping are the health benefits that one can get from it. You can use e-liquid with or without nicotine in it. Some people prefer to vape because it is easier to quit smoking when you have vaping instead of cigarettes.
Vaping is better than smoking, but not because of the nicotine. Nicotine has never been the problem; it’s the tar and other chemicals that come with combustion. Vaping is an alternative to smoking, because it introduces no harmful chemicals into your lungs. You need to best e-cigs to get best experience.
The two main differences between vaping and smoking are that vaping does not require combustion (which produces carcinogens like tar) and that vaping does not expose the lungs to direct smoke (which means the lungs do not absorb some of the harmful chemicals).
With e-liquid, you will have more options to choose from. There are different flavors available for you to try. This is possible because e-liquid does not contain nicotine. Aside from this, there are also different levels of nicotine available for you to choose from. If you want to vape with nicotine pouches, there are specific strengths available for you too. This can be helpful if you want to switch off between smoking and vaping gradually.
E-liquid also has fewer chemicals than cigarette smoke does. Since e-liquids do not contain tar and other harmful chemicals present in tobacco smoke, this means that vapers will not be exposed to these harmful substances while they vape. The absence of these chemicals makes it safer for users.
There are things that people should note about vaping, though. Vaping is not regulated by the FDA so it is important to be cautious when buying e-liquids and vaporizers. When buying e-liquids online, make sure that they are only made by companies that produce
