Vaping is the new buzz in the recreation industry. It has been identified as a much safer alternative to smoking as it does not involve combustion. E-liquids are available in different flavors that are much more attractive for youth and elderly.
The benefits of vaping are manifold. Not only are there multiple health benefits but they also serve different purposes including medical, recreational and now even social but, can you vape weed?
Now vaping has been commonly used with e-liquids as that was how the concept came into being. Using specially created flavored liquids, heated to form a dense vapor to be inhaled, vaping set the tone for other substances like herbs to be used for the process as well.
Next to e-liquids, a fast-catching substance use in vaping is marijuana.
Just like cigarettes, weed is also commonly smoked. Some people add tobacco to the roll while smoking up and the experience is a relaxing high that may sometimes spike creativity for some people.
As is the case with smoking cigarettes, the temperature and the high cannot be controlled while smoking weed. The only we can control the temperature is with a vaporizer and that is why people vape weed.
So yes, you can vape weed. In fact, the medical and health industry uses the practice of vaping weed to solve a myriad of physical as well as mental health issues. Needless to say, vaping weed provides recreational benefits as well.
Let’s get in to the various uses of vaping weed now.
Vaping weed for different purposes
First and foremost, we all know of the calming and relaxing properties of weed. The same characteristics obtained with the help of inducing the cannabinoids THC and CBD can be used to solve a lot of mental health issues like anxiety, irritability and a lack of ability to stay calm.
On the flip side, a different strain of weed can also cause a spike in energy and enthusiasm. It can basically improve the mood and bring back all the lost life in a person. For the same reason, these strains are used to treat depression and associated symptoms.
For both these purposes, vaping weed strains is by far the most effective method to obtain the desired effects. The patient gets to inhale the concentrated vapor with very minimal wastage or contact with air. This makes it easier for the brain and body to imbibe the benefits of the herb and thereby get relief from the symptoms.
Some strains of weed are also used to treat chronic pain. In this case though, mostly edibles are used as it needs to be treated from the inside.
There is also a practice of dry herb vaping which involves the vaporizing of herbs, like weed, in its dry form. This is considered to be more effective in some cases. Dry herb vaping can be done in a specially made vaporizer that has a heating chamber. In other cases, the substance is usually heated in a cartridge or a tank.
It goes without saying how relaxing the process of smoking weed and getting high is. The same kind of high can be obtained by vaping, that too without the harmful side effects of smoking. Besides, vaping allows the benefits to be directly inhaled without any added extra chemicals or particles from the air.
Hence, vaping is increasingly becoming a recreational practice among both the younger generation as well as the elder generation. It is not only extremely relaxing, but also a means to get together.
Which brings us to the next use that is, socializing.
It is always fun to get together with friends or family that share common interests and especially the method of unwinding. Everyone enjoys the company of a good bunch of loved ones and nowadays the common recreational activity being practiced is vaping.
Because of the convenience, and most importantly the socially acceptable nature of vaping, it can be enjoyed by anyone, including the people who don’t vape or smoke. As it does not lead to inhaling any second hand smoke, it gives them the freedom to enjoy the company and closeness of their loved ones without involving themselves in the act.
As one of the biggest benefits of vaping is a means to loosen up and unwind without harmful carcinogenic chemicals, the practice is mostly used to quit smoking. However, as weed has more effects on the mind and body, it is widely used in the medical and health industry as well.
Suffice it to say, vaping weed has more benefits than smoking weed and needless to say vaping e-liquids. But of course it all depends on personal preferences. A person who is not used to the high effects of weed can probably start with vaping e-liquids. Besides that it is always good to have someone who is experienced in vaping weed with you if you are a beginner.
