A Comparison of Vaporizing versus Smoking

There’s nothing wrong with smoking cannabis. In fact, it’s starting to look like it may do more good than harm due to its medicinal properties.

But what about that†”harm”?†Should we just forget about it entirely?

The health risks of smoking cannabis have nothing to do with the active ingredients, or cannabinoids in the flower – it’s the toxic byproducts of smoke in general.

In other words, it doesn’t matter if you’re burning wood, oregano or marijuana, you’re going to be inhaling toxins if you inhale the smoke.

What kind of toxins?

Toxins like carbon monoxide, benzene, toluene, naphthalene -†and other†nasty carcinogens.

Sure, cannabis may very well cancel out any negative health effects caused by these substances, but if you could, why not avoid them entirely?

The great thing about cannabis is that you don’t have to smoke it. You can eat it, you can vaporize it – it’s safe to say there’s a lot you can do with it.

We’re not saying to never smoke cannabis, but it’s always good to take a balanced approach to your use.

Today we’re checking†out an†infographic†recently published by thaVapeShop.

It begins with†the health benefits of using a vaporizer, branching†out into other topics such as a saving money, flavor, and how vaporizers and e-cigarettes are poised to surpass†traditional smoking†in the next 10 years.

Some shocking facts include the Volcano vaporizer being proven to eliminate over 100 chemicals that appear in smoke, and vaporizers virtually doubling†in material efficiency over smoking.
