Shopping at the marijuana dispensary, I noticed a steady increase in the number of vapes available.
This type of consumption method is definitely growing in popularity.
I admit that I probably purchase more vapes than any other type of consumption method. I switched to vaping over dried flower because it is more discreet and convenient. I don’t really want my home office to smell like weed. I don’t want to deal with rolling papers, lighters, rolling strays, ash and smoke. Plus vapes offer better efficiency. I consider vaping to be safer and healthier since the device doesn’t heat the oil to the point of combustion. Smokable flower can result in the inhalation of harmful carcinogens and other toxins. There is also the advantage that a vape cart delivers consistent terpene and cannabinoid composition. I know exactly how much THC or CBD I’m consuming. There are oils on the market that target a specific therapeutic need or recreational effect. They achieve potency levels that are impossible with traditional plant cultivation. The science behind the vape products makes a difference. I chose strains with equal parts THC and CBD because of the anti-inflammatory properties. I run for my workouts and frequently participate in marathons. The stress on my legs can lead to swelling, stiffness of the joints and intensive pain. I sometimes suffer from leg cramps. I like that vapes are wonderfully portable. I can easily pack a vape pen in a purse, backpack or even my pocket and medicate without any being aware of what I’m doing. The quick onset of effects provides relief without delay.
