Legislation that legalizes the use of marijuana is spreading like wildfire across the United States. With more states set to legalize marijuana this year, the demand for cannabis products is growing and the popularity of the many different forms of consumption are spreading and losing much of their old stigma. One such consumption method is the use of the vaporizer pen. With this type of delivery method, you hold a small “pen” and inhale and exhale a water vapor that contains atomized cannabis or nicotine particles (in situations where nicotine is being vaped, it is often referred to as e-cigarettes instead.) This method of consuming marijuana or nicotine has been around for quite a while, but it has recently really started to pick up steam in the mainstream. This is for a variety of reasons that all add up to an overall more pleasant consuming experience than one would have if they were to just simply smoke their product.
Here are just a few of the benefits to be had when a vape pen is used in place of another consumption method.
- Reduction in second hand smoke. In fact, vape pens produce absolutely zero smoke. The “smoke” that you see a person exhale when they use a vape pen is just the residual water vapor. This vapor does not have the same affect as smoke either. It will not damage your paint, upholstery or other belongings that way that smoke would.
- There is very little odor that comes from a vape pen when it is being used. In fact, the only situations where there might be an odor emitted from a vape pen is when someone is consuming flavored e-juice. Some people prefer to vape with products that have been flavored with cinnamon, strawberry, raspberry or vanilla flavors added in. This does not typically change the overall effect of the product, but it makes it a little more fun to vape.
- Since there is not an odor to color you or your surroundings when you use a vaporizer pen, then there is also not going to be any kind of after taste or bad breath to worry about. You can leave the breath mints at home, because no one is going to notice if your breath is bad after using a vape pen.
- There is less waste when you use a vape pen. Whether you are smoking cigarettes or cannabis products, there is going to be a much larger amount of trash when smoke versus vape. Smoking means that you have to find ways to deal with leftover ashes, butts, trash from the packaging, etc. A vape pen can fit nicely in your pocket with no additional packing and after it has been used, there is nothing to throw away. You simply put it back in your pocket and continue on with your day.
- Vape pens can actually be used to help people stop smoking. When used as an e-cigarette, the tobacco is completely removed, making it easier to someone to reduce and quit smoking.
