Vaporizer vs. Smoking

3 years, 7 months ago

I used to smoke a ridiculous amount of pot. I liked it, obviously, but there were downsides. I had less energy and it was harder to remember things. I would feel groggy and have this heavy feeling in my eyeballs(only way I can think to explain it) the morning after smoking. I have heard that vaporizers are healthier for you, and I’m wondering if vaporizing rather than smoking weed lessens these adverse effects? Any input is much appreciated.

That makes sense Eric. I’m just not sure what it is about weed that gives you that lazy feeling. I thought it might be the carcinogens rather than the THC, ya know?

if your getting that lazy feeling your probably smoking indica, which is more of a body high. vs sativa which is more of a mindfuck. chances are its a mixture but may be more indica heavy.

What James said..four times.

Oh and I would start vaporizing if you smoke daily or close to it. It is a million times healthier.

why is smoke from a vaporizer stronger than from regular smoke? i bought a new davinci vaporizer recently and when i take a hit, it feels stronger in your throat and i can feel it in certain lung area where you wouldn’t feel it with regular smoke! when i heat the chamber without anything in it, there’s a lil bit smoke coming out(just heat or burning rubber around the chamber?) ! anyone has experience with this? and/or is this bad?

@vapeorsmoke, When getting a new vaporizer you really need to plug it in, put the temp on full (without any weed in it) and let the manufacturing oils and dust burn away. When that is done you can start vaporizing your weed.

My advice for using the vape, test it over and over again to determine the correct temperature that will only vaporize your weed and avoid combustion. Vaporized weed is hardly visible so if you are taking a hit and you are exhaling smoke, then your temp is too high and you are burning your weed. Look at the heating element where the weed is placed as well, if the weed turns black, it’s combusted. If the weed is still brownish, then you are only vaporizing your weed…which is what you should be doing.

Experiment and testing seems to be the best solution because different strains of weed burn different and the vaporizer heating element plays a factor in it as well.

So weird how weed affects people in different ways. When I hear people talk about side effects like what you described, my first thought is that they just spend a little more money and get some better weed. If that doesn’t work, I would say maybe perhaps weed is just not for you.

@tangledupinplaid21,
-Simmer weed in heavy cream or whole milk on the stove at the low heat setting (stir constantly so it doesnt form a film on top.)
-Strain the weed from the cream/milk (should look slightly green.)
-Use the cream/milk to make hot chocolate or lattes, or blend it with fresh fruit.
-No smoking, no smell, no coughing, no black lungs.

@donjaime23, I certainly do prefer edibles, especially nowadays.

@tangledupinplaid21, Vaporizers give a clearer and cleaner high as they only burn the THC. Vaporizers lessen the adverse effects, such as waking up bung hung. The high is less potent. But from what you describe it would cater to your desires

You get a different effect. It comes in vapor form, not smoke. You’re inhaling less plant matter. Vaping has a high that will hit you later on, it’s more gradual rather than the punch to your face that straight leaf matter will. I highly recommend if you do get a vaporizer to make sure that it’s a high grade. Make sure you do your research as well with the metals used in the pen or whatever you decide to buy. Vaping and e cigs have yet to be scrutinized by the FDA…. So I can’t really sit here and tell you that it’s better. But I can tell you what to stay away from. Any metal that burns off when heat treated. Be sure to do your research and don’t be afraid to spend a little extra dough to buy yourself peace of mind and better health. And people can and will sell knock offs. Hope that helps?
