Benefits Of Vaping

Electronic cigarettes have been gaining much popularity in recent years. The benefits of vaping offer different people a healthier alternative to inhaling smoke. Whether it is for people who simply like to supplement their regular cigarette smoking, or whether it is for people who want to quit smoking altogether or even if it is for people who like to start the practice for recreational purposes or use vaping as a healthier way of using marijuana, vaping is without a doubt becoming a common phenomenon.

Even though social situations have changed over the past few years, quitting smoking still seems to be one of the biggest reasons why people turn to vaping.

Hence the main benefit is definitely the fact vaping helps to quit. There are also more recreational benefits including the joy of group vaping in cases of cloud chasing that are also very attractive for many people, especially youth.

So let’s see what the major benefits are of vaping:

Benefits of vaping

Switching to vaping from smoking can prove to be more beneficial for a person, than for someone who just started vaping, say for recreational purposes for example. It not only provides a sufficient amount of nicotine to keep the withdrawal symptoms at bay, but also provides a calming and relaxing experience, without the harmful effects of carcinogenic chemicals.

So let’s start with the most important benefit:

Health benefits

For someone who has been heavily engaged in the act of smoking for a prolonged period of time, the overall health condition including the lungs would be highly deteriorated. Vaping is one of the best methods to gradually salvage the situation and bring back or restore the normal health condition of a person.

As mentioned earlier, the carcinogenic chemicals present in tobacco along with nicotine are mainly responsible for lung diseases, cancer and most of other health problems associated with smoking. As completely stopping the supply of nicotine to the body would lead to severe withdrawal symptoms, the only way to eliminate the toxins from the body and quit the need for nicotine altogether is to gradually take it away, lessening the amount each time.

start vaping

Vaping helps to achieve this purpose exactly, by providing limited amounts of nicotine without any other chemicals. This way, one can slowly get back better health and a better life free of cigarettes.

Apart from internal health, external health conditions are also improved once you start vaping. For instance, since vaping does not involve any kind of odour, it can help get rid of the bad odour lingering from smoking cigarettes and tobacco. There are some other effects of smoking like yellowing of skin and stained teeth that often go unstated. Vaping can help get rid of these issues as well.

So as you can see, the health benefits of vaping are many, whether vaping and e-juice, oil or dry herb.

Aesthetic benefits

Since vaping does not involve any kind of combustion, the emissions from the process are very minimal. The vapour is concentrated on the person inhaling alone, which not only helps to give more effective benefits but also keeps others from inhaling second hand emissions. This way, vaping is much more socially acceptable.

Moreover, because of the varieties in flavours of e-liquids, the odour produced is quite negligible and actually mildly pleasant for anyone who might be with you.

Curbing addiction

Vaping is less addictive and damaging than smoking which carries with it a whole complex array of dangerous chemicals into your lungs. Nicotine is the main substance that could prove to be addictive in vaping however, but it is able to be contained in reliably controlled and limited amounts according to the e-juice concentrate chosen. Nocotine may  also be deemed less addictive while consumed on its own, without the other chemicals carried in cigarette smoke. This can help smokers break the smoking habit over time without severe withdrawal symptoms.

People who have been addicted to smoking for a long time may find themselves  able to do away with their need to vape or smoke after turning to vaping as a replacement for tobacca. This possible when using vapors to ease off nicotine using e-juice with minimal chemical additions. Published reports also seem to suggest that e-cigarettes are  far less impactful on health or addictive than tobacco cigarettes.

Flavors

A feature that is exclusive to vaping is flavors. E-liquids come in a variety of different flavors that can not only provide a distinct and pleasant taste and mild odour for people who vape, but can also effect a soothing and calming experiences - according to the flavor. These flavors alone may induce people to quit smoking and turn to vaping as an alternative, but chemicals that create flavors are varied and not necessarily simple or benign to the user and some flavors are reported as simply unpleasant to use - read on.

There is a common misconception that interesting flavors are meant only for teenagers and the younger generation in general. This has even caused the practice to be viewed as a new fad for 'gen Y's. The interesting part to this story is that young adults that have never smoked are taking up vaping - along with those who transition from smoking - as a social activity and e-liquid flavors heighten the fun. While this may seem alarming, this is a new social trend that is distinctly healthier than smoking with one small caveat being flavor types. From the  view  point of a new social activity tied to pubs, clubs and social groups of young adults, it is less socially intrusive and harmful than illicit drugs or tobacco, but some flavors can hide health dangers which can be avoided if users know which flavor additives carry risk.

Flavors types need to be understood by users as there is a very large range. Some flavors are potentially dangerous to e-juice user health and the hunt for new flavors is pushing vaping health into uncharted waters. Some vape users have been experimenting with vaping caffeine and honey too but this can be dangerous. 

The amount of exposure and effect of some flavor creating chemicals needs to be determined. The health effect of buttery flavor diacetyl is known to  produce 'pop-corn lung' syndrome if used heavily with this affect reported by industrial workers exposed to heated diacetyl in popcorn manufacture. Caution about the dangers of certain flavors needs to be understood and exercised. 

Another issue is the use of PG and VG in e-juice recipes. These are regarded as having no real health impact and are part of the formula to heighten the flavor of an e-juice and create vapor cloud, but be aware that some people may occasionally  have an allergy to these additives when vaped, especially PG.  Both can be totally avoided using some CBD oil vape liquids.

The use of CBD oil, cannabis concentrates and dry herb marijuana for vaping (most without flavor additives)  has also grown in popularity. A recently reported study demonstrated that users vaping marijuana for medical reasons  had dropped smoking and other illicit drugs altogether in significant numbers after taking up vaping marijuana as prescribed. The message here is that CBD oil and responsible cannabis users, that avoid flavor doctored version of CBD vape juice and stick to product that is legally produced under strict quality control conditions, will come out ahead with the healthiest vape experience of them all.

FINAL VERDICT

On the whole, vaping in general is more acceptable to society for all the reasons mentioned in this article.

Knowing that a friend or loved one is in to vaping on the social scene is not something to get anxious about these days and rather than being a step towards illicit drugs (as some commentators have claimed) vaping may actually be seen as a step away from dangerous substance abuse and a harmless social pursuit like enjoying the pleasures of conversation and a drink with friends.  If someone  you know is vaping and is a former smoker wanting to recover their health, you can be relieved that this is definitely a positive step in the right direction towards being tobacco free.

Finally, vaping is a great way to use cannabis products for recreation and health reasons, but we have to end this article by saying all things are best done in moderation and whether you are vaping flavored nicotine based e-juice, cannabis products or some homemade e-juice put together by a friend, its best to know what  is in it and the limits for those ingredients. You do also need to be aware of the law in your particular area concerning both vaping and if using  cannabis.

Vaping is actually safe, an enjoyable pastime, a great way to relax with friends,  and can even be good for your health too -  when you know your body, remain in control and know exactly what is in the chamber.

    Hello, Thanks for the comment and your reference to the NZ store which I note is focussed on nicotine e-juice and flavored ones at that.

    From our standpoint we are not advocating the use of nicotine vape juice for any other reason than as an aid to quit smoking.

    This site is focussed on vaping cannabis products primarily for health reasons. The issue of flavors and additives is another area we are very cautious about with some flavor additives having been found to be dangerous and other materials, such as PEG, now coming into question where they may not be so benign for the body when heated. The one additive we are very interested in is natural terpenes and these occur in cannabis extracts or may be added. These have benefits and can also help to thin an E-liquid.

    The point we want to underscore is that we see vaping as one of the best vectors for taking CBD or dry herb cannabis (let’s call it but the old school name marijuana) for medical or health reasons – with caution. We are very wary of flavored CBD juice or any other vape juice that contains additives and encourage our readers to seek information on the health risk that may be associated with an additive. There is information out there and some research is now available. The point is that CBD in its pure form can be quickly taken into the system via vaping where as eating CBD or sublingual intake is slower and the affect achieved is less for the amount taken.

    Our other point is that smoking dry herb cannabis/weed/marijuana in the traditional way is definitely more dangerous for your health than using a vaporizer. Vaping involves heating the the herb to a selected temperature that will cause the volatile compounds to vaporize (not burn) and can then be taken into the system via the lungs. This of course does not involve combustion or burning material to create smoke that carries many other compounds including those found to be carcinogenic. An issue we also caution readers about is getting the temperature setting for vaping dry herb or oil. You want to control this and ideally with a variable temperature setting device. If your device runs too hot you may inadvertently cause unnecessary chemical changes to the material that could be bad for you.
