For years we have been hearing that it is much healthier to use a vape instead of smoking. Obviously there are many reasons why smoking is dangerous and hazardous to your health. But what exactly are the health benefits of using vaporizers instead of smoking? There are many reasons why this is a much better option, regardless if its health related or not but we will cover some of the more important stuff here on this page. Here is a list of just some of the most important reasons why vaporizing is a much healthier way to consume your herbs than smoking.
- Less toxins being absorbed into your lungs: Smoking medical marijuana uses the process of combustion, which is very dangerous to your health because you are ingesting many different kinds of harmful toxins into your lungs. This more smoke you inhale and the longer you hold it in, the worse the damage can be. Smoking is the main cause of lung cancer and can also lead to many other respiratory diseases or disorders. All of this damage can be completely avoided. Choosing to use a vaporizer is simply a much healthier option for many reasons.
- Heals damage caused by smoking: Most people don’t realize that using a vaporizer can actually help heal damage to your lungs caused by smoking and even helping some ex-smokers with asthma. Many studies show significant improvements to people with damaged lungs. 1 study even showed improvement in respiratory function after completely switching to using a vaporizer for only 30 days.
- Faster pain relief: For patients who use medical marijuana for pain relief, smoking can be a bad choice. When you are inhaling smoke, your body recognizes that it is foreign and tries to get rid of the toxins before absorbing and distributing the healthy ingredients. For this reason, using a vaporizer will actually help provide pain relief much faster than smoking. Edibles are another popular choice and while there is no fear of toxins, your stomach takes much longer to break down and distribute the ingredients. Anyone suffering from chronic pain will agree that getting relief as fast as possible is very important. Smoking not only takes longer but it also reduces the benefits by burning off much of the active ingredients so you are also getting much less value from your herbs.
- No skin damage: Smoking has been proven to damage your skin. This is from second hand smoke, which deprives your skin of oxygen and clogs your pores as well. Smoking can also dry out your skin, restrict proper blood flow and reduce oil dispersion, which can restrict blood flow. This will speed up the aging process and also have impact on your looks.
- No sexual health issues: Smoking can cause damage to your sexual organs and even lead to male impotence. It could even limit the ability to maintain an erection. Research proves that if you want more sex or better sex you should quit smoking!
Other Benefits of Using Vaporizers Instead of Smoking
While most people already know it is healthier, there are also many other reasons why you should choose to use a vaporizer instead of smoking. Are you looking to get the most for your money? Do you want the best flavor from your herbs?
- Better flavor: Because there is no combustion process when you use a vaporizer, you don’t have to worry about all the tar and toxins. Smoking leaves a bad taste in your mouth, literally
- Better value: As previously mentioned, when you smoke, you are actually burning off (destroying) some of the active ingredients along with toxins. When you use a vaporizer you don’t have to worry about losing any value and you will always get a better flavor as well, making it a better overall experience. Most importantly your herbs will last longer this way.
- Better smell: Smoking stinks, literally! Smoke is much thicker than vapor and will actually stick to your hair and clothing. It will also linger around your home, office, car or any place you decide to smoke indoors. Vapor has a much better odor because it is a much more natural process and will not linger around as much. So, if you are worried about odor this is another thing to consider.
