Vaping cannabis has some unique benefits…some may even be surprising!
Quick absorption and faster effects. Among the most considerable benefits of vaping is quick absorption into the bloodstream. While edibles can take half an hour or more for the active ingredients to process, inhaled cannabis starts working right away. That time difference is critical for those using cannabis to relieve conditions such as chronic pain.
Easy to control dose. Another benefit of quick absorption that feeling effects immediately makes it easier to gauge how much to consume. The number one cause of an unpleasant cannabis experience is accidentally taking too much, and over-consuming THC is often the result of not sensing effects and subsequently feeling the need to “take a little more”…and that little more ends up being a little too much. In contrast, vaping allows the user to easily experiment in finding their perfect dose, even with unfamiliar strains.
Strongest method for cannabinoids to ease nerve pain. Inhaled cannabis is also processed differently by the body, making the beneficial cannabinoids and terpenes more available to different body systems than other methods. For example, scientific studies have shown that inhaled cannabis is significantly more effective at relieving neuropathic pain (pain caused by nerve function). While there are several options for inhaling cannabis, from traditional smoking to “dabbing,” vaping is much easier and more convenient. Vaping also causes less irritation, thanks to its lack of harmful smoke and ash.
Since inhaled cannabis has unique benefits, many cannabis users ‘layer’ their consumption methods, adding vaping to edibles, tinctures, etc. Vaping is also a good addition to a cannabis regimen as a ‘quick relief’ option. “When I started seeing a medical marijuana physician,” says a cannabis user in Florida, “my doctor suggested vaping as the first method I try since it would be easy and I could test what worked for me. My doctor also recommended keeping a vape pen on hand, even after I branched out and explored other methods, for access to quick relief.”
Convenient and easy. Additionally, vaping is one of the easiest and most convenient ways to consume cannabis. No need to invest in extensive (and expensive) equipment; simply choose a cartridge and a device. Vape pens are portable and discreet, making it even easier.
Safer alternative to smoking
Not many consumers understand that when you smoke cannabis flower with traditional methods like a bowl, joint or blunt, you’re still subject to inhaling carcinogens. Even though smoking cannabis is less carcinogenic than nicotine products, you’re still subject to potentially dangerous toxins.
So, one of the biggest benefits of vaping is the fact that it’s a safer alternative. When you purchase a vape cartridge from a trusted licensed brand, one that’s subject to regulated third-party testing, you’re vaporizing the purest extracts from the cannabis plant.
With vaping, there’s no ‘combustion’ that produces smoke to inhale. Instead, you’re inhaling the vapors from unadulterated cannabis oils, which have no additional harmful ingredients or additives. Overall, this delivers a safer experience and an alternative to other consumption methods.
On that same note, another benefit of vaping is the lack of odor that’s produced. We all know that smoking cannabis flower can be quite pungent. But, with vaping cannabis oils, the vapors are practically scentless.
That means, it’s easier to vape discreetly, and you won’t have to worry about cannabis aromas or smoky odors sticking to your clothing, furniture, or surroundings.
Another benefit of vaping is that most devices allow you to control the temperature of each inhale. Many vape pens are equipped with temperature or voltage settings that offer vape consumers low, medium, and high heat options.
Because cannabis effects can vary due to the specific burning points of certain cannabinoids, and terpenes, this functionality gives consumers the ability to fine-tune each vaping experience. Plus, some like those cough-inducing harsh, hot hits, while others, just don’t.
Using a lower temperature setting can also increase flavor for connoisseurs of taste.
So many cannabis consumers rely on their favorite strain for specific medicinal or recreational effects. Now, one bonus benefit of vaping is the rise in the popularity of strain-specific cartridges.
Even though many ‘general’ vape carts still exist that are just indica dominant, sativa dominant or hybrid in effect – many extractors are now producing small, strain-specific batches. That means you can still achieve the same types of effects from your favorite flower with all the benefits of vaping, too.
Plenty of prices for every budget
With the expansion of the vape cartridge market, one last benefit of vaping is the fact that there is a wide range to choose from. Including a vape cartridge at every price point for every type of consumer’s budget.
Today, you can easily purchase different sizes, or types of vape cartridges that range in price from $20-$100. Often, the difference in price is dependent on whether the cartridge is live resin or distillate, half a gram or one gram, or the type of extraction process that was used.
