There's been a lot of buzz around vaping in the past few years. People are switching from smoking to vaping in droves, due to the perception that it is a safer and healthier alternative to smoking. But is this true?
Whether you are smoking tobacco or a dry herb, it is the combustion of said product that causes the most harm. You see burning plant matter- be it tobacco or dry herbs- creates a lot of tar and other carcinogens. It is exposure to these dangerous substances that increase your risk for developing respiratory diseases and several cancers. However, this risk can be substantially mitigated by simply switching to a vaporizer.
According to a paper released by California NORML, unlike the traditional heating methods of joints, bongs or cigarettes, vaporizers heat the plant to a temperature that stays below the point of combustion. In addition, heating the plant in this way releases primarily just the essential oils, providing the user with a smooth and delectable experience.
While the reduce health risks are enough to encourage every user to switch to vaping, there are many other benefits associated with this method of consumption.
It Saves You Money
While you will have to make the initial investment of purchasing a vaporizer (we suggest the Quant Vapes dry herb vaporizer!), vaping will save you money in the long run. Designed to pack more punch, vaporizers allow the user to consume a much more potent dose of the product. In fact, a study conducted by California NORML and MAPS found that vaporizers convert 46% of available THC into vapor, compared to the measly 25% converted through traditional smoking methods. With vaporizers, you get more bang for your buck.

There are so many stylish vaporizers and vape accessories, so you can look good and cut down on the paraphernalia involved in smoking - no more lighters, or papers for you!

Vapes don't look as conspicuous as cigarettes or joints, and no one needs to know what you're inhaling when you use one. This makes them a great option for going out and about without worrying about what anyone's thinking. They also don't have the strong smell of joints, so you can always be discreet.
Because you aren't burning your dry herb, you can also taste the pleasant flavor notes more without producing the burnt, acrid smell you might usually associate with it. Many vape users report that vaping gives a much more pleasant, cleaner taste.
