Vaporizing Weed vs Smoking Weed
How is vaporizing weed different than smoking weed you may ask? When you spark up a jay or light up a bowl, you are burning everything…and I’m not just talking about the good stuff. What you are releasing all of the terps, cannabinoids,carcinogens such as benzene and tar all at once. However, when vaporizing weed, the goal is to stay under the temperature for combustion to avoid that all together. When using a vaporizer, the goal is the enjoy the flavor that is present in flavonoids, while crafting your buzz to the specific cannabinoids you are trying to release.
Not only are the health effects different, but the high is totally different as well. It took a little while to get used the high that a vaporizer produces, but all in all, I really prefer it now. Don’t get me wrong, I’m still known to spark up a jay at night every now and again, but for daily usage, vaporizing weed is the way to go. In the morning, I’m more of a 350F person…I enjoy the light creative high created by the THC and low amounts of CBD, but that’s also because I’m a sativa lover and really enjoy the enlightenment that comes with it. However, that doesn’t mean that I don’t go both ways. On a rainy day and some netflix, Indica’s are my friend. Since the goal is to relax, I’ll usually crank up my vape to 380 and get a little foggy and let my mind rest for a while.
Another thing that I’ve also noticed is that the high from a vaporizer lasts a shorter time period than it does if I smoke. I can only assume that this is due to the cannabinoids that I am not activating.
And finally, for those efficient people who like to save money- yes a wax vaporizer has an initial investment, but so does a nice glass piece. You’ll learn also how you need watch and set your vape temp for specific “highs”. Did you know that I use the same bowl 3 times in a day? In the morning at 350, at night at 380…and then I save the ABV (Already been vaped) and make some yummy cannabutter with it. How’s that for stretching your supply?
