The emergence of vapes in the cannabis industry in recent years has sparked debate amongst connoisseurs as to what method is best for the inhalation of the plant: smoking or vaping?
In this article, we’re exploring some of the differences between the two options to discover which is best for you. Are you a traditionalist smoker, or a modern vape-lord? And do you have to choose between the two?
Does Smoking or Vaping Get Your Higher?
In a study released by Johns Hopkins University, it was shown that vaporizing cannabis provides a more intense high as compared to smoking flower when keeping dosage consistent.
When compared to smoking, vaporizers produced significantly greater:
- Subjective drug effects
- Cognitive and psychomotor impairment
- Higher blood THC concentrations.
With vaping, similar to edibles, it’s always best to start slow. All puffs of cannabis are not equal — vaping delivers a more powerful punch!
Smoking vs Vaping Effects on the Lungs
When you smoke flower in the traditional sense through a pipe, bong, or joint, you are quite literally combusting the herb. Naturally, this has a harsher effect on the lungs.
The vaping process, on the other hand, involves inhaling THC oil into your lungs. This makes any given hit much less potent.
There is still very little research about the long-term effects of vaping on the lungs. However, many states such as Colorado have implemented significant testing requirements to gauge impacts.
