4 No-Brainer Reasons Why You Should Switch from Smoking to Vaping
Any proposition that there’s a better way to enjoy loose leaf than smoking is often met with skepticism, if not outright rejection.
This is totally understandable, considering it’s possible that humans could have started smoking loose leaf more than 2,700 years ago.
There was really no contender that came close to smoking, until a few years ago, when dry herb vaporizers were introduced. Suddenly, loose leaf users had another option to consume their favorite herb. It looks similar to smoking but offers a totally different experience.
Of course, many would still advocate for smoking as the best way to enjoy loose leaf. However, there are a number of benefits waiting for those who are thinking of switching to a dry vape pen.
Here are 4 of them:
- It’s Healthier
Not that loose leaf users are looking for a healthier alternative to smoking, but vaping offers a “cleaner” way to enjoy loose leaf. While there is no direct link between lung cancer and loose leaf vaping, it was found that smoke from burning loose leaf has several known carcinogens. Plus, the tar it produces has 50% more of the chemicals associated with lung cancer compared to tobacco smoke.
Vaping loose leaf doesn’t burn the herb. It vaporizes loose leaf in a combustion chamber producing less of the toxins and more of the good stuff.
- It’s More Discreet
Anyone caught smoking loose leaf in public is going to get a few stares (or many) from people. There’s nothing subtle about it, not to mention the telltale odor it produces.
This becomes an issue for loose leaf users who want to get their fix during public events such as concerts, or when they’re traveling.
Dry herb vaporizers are more discreet than a joint. Advanced dry herb vaporizers such as AirVape XS includes accessories that help in hiding the telltale odors of loose leaf.
- It’s More Cost Effective
While it’s true that people would need to shell out a little bit of dough to invest in a high-quality dry herb vaporizer, it’s more cost-effective in the long run. This is because loose leaf enthusiasts would not have to use as much herbs when vaping to get the same effect they’re getting from smoking.
In fact, in a study published in the Journal of Psychoactive Drugs, loose leaf users ranked vaping as the most efficient way to get the most out of their herbs, overtaking smoking, tea, and edibles.
- It’s More Flavorful
While most loose leaf users are gunning for the high and not the flavor, vaping herbs produced more flavor compared to smoking.
As opposed to burning the leaves, vaping extracts the oils from the herb and converts them into flavorful vapor. It also brings out more flavor notes from loose leaf, giving loose leaf users a more “delicious experience” while getting their fix.
We have nothing against smoking loose leaf. It’s part of the tradition and culture of loose leaf enthusiasts of the past, the present, and the future. However, for those who are looking for a new way to get their loose leaf high, vaping is the way to go.
