Should You Be Vaping Instead of Smoking?

Sometimes trends happen out of convenience and sometimes out of new knowledge regarding important health and safety factors. In the case of vaping cannabis, it was a little bit of both. It has long been proven that vaping – while not necessarily risk free – is certainly safer than smoking as it is less irritating on the throat and lungs. Here are a few things you should know about vaping cannabis to help you decide if vaping or smoking is right for you.

Vaping is Safer and More Efficient

Without the obvious cannabis smoke smell it has become incredibly easy to medicate in a public setting safely – which is one of the reasons that vaping has caught on so quickly. However, it’s not only an efficient and smoke-free way to medicate, it is also quite possibly a more efficient delivery method for THC, since none of the THC gets burnt off in the initial lighting of the bowl.

Choose Your Strain and Vape Pen Carefully

Another important thing to take into consideration when deciding if you should be vaping instead of smoking is which strain – and pen – you are using. The strain you vape will play a huge part in the buzz you get – so choose wisely and based on your needs and experiences with bud or other vapes. If you get a rechargeable pen, rather than disposable one, you may want to consider one with additional features like temperature controls or the ability to vape flower or cartridges and other concentrates. 

Understand What You Are Looking For

If you’re looking for a buzz that will help you get up and go, then you know you’re most likely looking for a sativa. On the other hand, if it’s the end of the night and you’re ready to wind down an indica is usually the go-to. Try to, whenever possible, try strains that you’ve already smoked before – this way you have an idea of what to expect as far as effects go. Since vapes are usually concentrates the THC content is much higher in vape cartridges when compared to bud – which make the effects that much more potent. For some people, especially new consumers.

Evergreen Organix offers a full line of vapor products – from rechargeable vape pen kits to concentrate cartridges and more. Pre-filled disposable vapes as well as the cartridges are offered in a variety of indica, sativa and hybrid options to get you through your day good or bad.
