Did you know that you can use your vaping device for the consumption of medical marijuana? Of course you can. Instead of rolling a joint or buying those enormous and unsightly bongs, a vape pen is becoming the more popular choice. Even doctors recommend using vaping devices over pipes and bongs because of the many related health benefits.
Vaping reduces the amount of smoke inhaled.
Vape pens will heat the medical marijuana to a much lower temperature. This means that a larger amount of the active ingredients, or cannabinoids, are actually transferred to the user. When we light marijuana by fire through a joint, pipe, or bong, a significant portion of the cannabinoids simply goes up in flames. Vaporizing also reduces the harmful by-products that result from the more combustible methods. And vape pens remove over 95 percent of the smoke inhaled from a joint, pipe, or bong, too. This reduces the amount of possible lung damage significantly.
Get more “Bang for your Buck.”
Because a vape pen is heating the marijuana at such low temperatures, this makes the entire consumption process much more efficient. To put this another way, your pot will last much longer. Bongs, joints, and pipes lose a large amount of the product every time a flame is lit. Save your money. Buy a vape pen. Your pot will last over twice as long, and you’ll pay for your vaping device in no time.
Enjoy a “clearer” high.
In one recent research study, patients who vape their medical marijuana tend to enjoy a much better, clear-minded high. Bongs, joints, and pipes usually require the patient to take long, deep breaths whereas a vaping device allows for much shorter, controlled drags. It’s the smoke inhalation that tends to result in that feeling of lightheadedness, not the chemicals in the cannabis plant. Patients who vape report using smaller dosages as compared to traditional devices and even edibles and teas. This saves even more money in the long term while producing a much better high at the same time.
Get faster relief.
When medical marijuana is ingested through those tasty edibles, it takes a bit of time for the cannabinoids to be absorbed into the bloodstream by way of the stomach. Vaping speeds up the high by as much as one hour, according to the current research. Even for patients who have been life-long non-smokers, many have turned to vaping as the better choice. You’ll get almost instantaneous relief and maybe even drop a few pounds in the process.
