Vaping is emerging as the preferred method of ingesting cannabis for new and longtime cannabis users alike. At the base, the practice is pretty futuristic –instead of smoking cannabis in the traditional way, waxes, hashes, shatters, and flower buds are inserted into the vaporizer chamber and heated enough to vaporize rather than burning the material.

Once you inhale the vapor, THC is absorbed into your bloodstream as you exhale the rest.

Here are the main reasons for using a vaporizer.

1. A Healthy Way to Consume Cannabis

The main difference between smoking and vaping is that no combustion takes place. Yes, this may seem like a meaningless distinction, but it has a profound impact on your health.

For years, vaporizers have been explored as the main alternative to smoking. The main advantages of using Dr Dabber vaporizers include the formation of a smaller quantity of by-products like polycyclic, tar, carbon monoxide, and aromatic hydrocarbons.

Yes, the subjective effects of vaporization are comparable to smoking. Further, vaporization doesn’t have any adverse effects like smoking. put simply, the vaporizer makes sure you ingest more of the compounds you want, and less of what you don’t want like tar and carbon monoxide.

2. Better on Lungs

Vaping is better for your lungs as it doesn’t involve heating in it. Vapors produced from vaporizers are cooler than smoke produced in conventional smoking.

But that’s not all, smoking causes huge significant damage to your lungs and airways. If a person smokes more, the cells that produce mucus in the airway and lungs grow in size and numbers. As a result, the lungs are unable to clean out the extra mucus. As such, the mucus stays on the airways, jamming the airway which results in a cough.

Further, smoking makes your lungs grow old and decreases the efficiency of your immune system to protect you from an infection.

3. Temperature Control

When smoking, the idea of temperature control may seem pointless or foreign. However, there are two reasons why you should care about temperature control.

The main reason is flavor. For instance, if you’re not burning your extract or dry leaf, you can taste it to enhance the flavor.

The other reason is, using different temperatures gives you different levels of highs as different components within the extract or flower are released at different temperatures.

Therefore, controlling the temperature gives you a unique effect of influencing how vaping makes you feel.

4. Quick Onset of Effects

Are you looking for immediate relief? Then vaping inhalation is the ideal option as it gives a quick onset of effects.

Yes, the onset from vaporizing is immediate, rapid, and lasts for up to three hours making it the most convenient method of consumption. And since no combustion takes place, most people prefer the taste of vapor instead of that of smoke.

5. Saves on Cost

Vaporizing converts 46 percent of available THC to vapor as compared to smoking converts less than 25 percent of the available THC. Yes, the vaporizing devices will cost more, but the higher conversion rate means that one will need to use less THC to achieve the desired outcome. Therefore, vaping saves you on cost in the long run.

6. Discreet and Convenient

Unlike smoking, vaporizing gives you a high level of discreteness. First, the vapor from vaping is odorless and dissipates immediately thus eliminating any odor-related concerns. The vapes are also great when you’re on the go. For instance, the handheld vapes are designed to fit well in your palm and are thus pocket-friendly.

7. Less Smoke

Like the idea of being odorless, less smoke is a good thing. Vaping means less smoke thus leading to less damage to your body and lungs. It also means less smoke indoors, which can seep into the furniture or set off a smoke detector. Being in a room full of smoke is tough on your eyes and also makes it harder for people with allergies to smoke weed.

8. More Efficient Use of Weed

Using a vaporizer is an efficient and simple way to smoke weed. For starters, you can get several sessions with a single pack of buds. Even better, you can use the combusted weed for making tea or as edibles. That’s not the case when smoking buds. For the latter, the weed turns to ashes leaving you at the mercy of someone’s rolling skills.

9. Control Over Vapor Output

Do you know that vaping gives you control over the amount of vapor you exhale? Yes, this is the most important part of the experience.

Some vapers prefer small devices like pod vapes which are convenient and give a low vapor output. Others prefer high-powered mods for cloud chasing. And yes, you can fine-tune your vapor volume by adjusting the power output, airflow, and coil type. Therefore, you can be stealthy and subtle or as showy as you wish, depending on how you choose to vape.

10. Price Points for Everyone

The vaping market is huge and very competitive. The result, different products in the market and every price range to suit every user. Whether you want a simple e-cig or a sophisticated vape mod, there’s a vape out there that you can buy and start using today.

11. Better Taste

With cannabis, it’s not just about getting high; the taste too is very important. The lovely little terpenes on cannabis not only smell good but also taste great too. However, when you smoke you don’t have control over the temperature. If the temperature gets high, it destroys the terpenes. That’s not the case with vaping. Here, you have temperature control. Further, vaporization takes place at a much lower temperature and therefore doesn’t destroy the terpenes.


In the last decade, vaping has grown in popularity. Yes, there’s a lot of debate on whether vaping is better and healthier than smoking. And while research on vaping is still ongoing, available data show that vaping is a healthier alternative to smoking. And as many people have made the switch from smoking cigarettes to e-cigarettes, vaping is also growing in popularity among cannabis users.
