2020 is about to end. And it’s been one hell of a year. Did you survive it without losing your psyche? Well, congratulations! You made it. Now, let’s get it over with some fun.
Holidays are finally here. Though this year, they aren’t nearly similar to the ones we had in the past, there’s no point crying a river over it. And we do have cannabis with us, standing stronger than ever before.
But hey, this year, enjoying your cannabis is also a little different. You might be a fan of having a lit joint in your hand. But this time, smoking perhaps isn’t a really great idea, especially if you have a medical marijuana card and are using the herb for medicinal purposes.
Well, if not smoking then what?
How Vaping is a better alternative to Smoking Cannabis ?
Experts say it’s best to keep a distance from inhaling cannabis altogether this holiday season, given the current pandemic. But if you still want to carry on that puffing legacy of marijuana, it’s better to make a shift to vaping.

Here is how Vaping is a better alternative to smoking cannabis.
Smoking, as you perhaps already know, is very harmful to our lungs. The reason for this is combustion. Smoking involves the burning of materials. And this leads to the production of toxic gases. Now, when you are smoking a joint, you are not only inhaling the cannabinoids of marijuana but also these toxic gases, which affect your lungs in a really harsh way. This may lead to the development of various chronic ailments, including cancer.
With vaping, though, there’s no such issue. The research on the effects of vaping isn’t extensive. However, experts tell us that it is a lot better than smoking, if not completely safe, for your lungs. Vaping does not involve combustion. Instead, in this method, the cannabinoids are heated at a particular temperature. Due to this, they do not affect your lungs in the same way as smoking.
420 doctors say vaping also offer you better efficiency as compared to smoking. How? Well, when you are smoking your marijuana, the combustion process burns up most of your cannabinoids. In fact, as per some marijuana experts, this wastage may vary from 80 to 95 percent. Not good at all.
On the other hand, when you vape your cannabis, as we discussed, it doesn’t involve any burning. And due to this, you are able to absorb up to 95 percent of the plant’s cannabinoids. Only 5 percent wastage.
In addition to this, vaping offers better bioavailability, which means, even in general, your body is able to use more cannabinoids using this method as compared to smoking.
Now, if you thinking of buying a bigger marijuana stock this holiday season, the benefits above present you with a great opportunity to save some money.
The taste of marijuana is actually pretty subjective. Some like it. And some are not really a fan of it. But if you have noticed it, smoking can ruin the overall taste and aroma of the herb significantly. This is again because of combustion only. While smoking, most of the terpenes of the plants get burnt. And due to this, it loses its original flavor.
Vaping, though, may preserve the native taste of the herb, as your terpenes are still there. Also, terpenes also have some therapeutic properties. This adds further to the overall benefits of the plant.
If you are a marijuana smoker, you surely are familiar with that trademark smell of it, which you don’t seem to get rid of, no matter what. Well, during the holiday season, people might be visiting you. And if you are one of those who are not really fine with advertising their marijuana intake, this surely can be an issue for you.
Well, vaping can help you here too. You should note that this particular method produces a lot less odor as compared to smoking. Also, if there is some smell, it doesn’t linger on your clothes and furniture. This makes vaping quite discreet.
