Why patients are switching from smoking to vaping


Wondering why so many people are now vaping their medicine rather than smoking it?

Perhaps you’re curious as to whether or not vaping is safe, making you hesitant about trying it. While we go over the details of how to consume cannabis in your medical cannabis consultation, this blog breaks down the benefits of switching from smoking to vaping:


It’s discreet

Vaporizers create less odour than joints, helping you to enjoy your medical cannabis discreetly. Some are so small that they can even fit in the palm of your hand.


It minimizes intake of carcinogens

Research has determined that switching from smoking to vaping helps to avoid the toxic and potentially carcinogenic compounds caused by combustion. Vaporization works by heating the cannabis product at temperatures that are low enough to vape resins and oils without burning your material. Rather than creating smoke, vaporizers create steam that turns into vapour. Vapour contains much fewer carcinogenic compounds than smoke.

It helps preserves cannabinoids and terpenes

When you smoke cannabis, much of its compounds are burned off. Vaping helps you get the most out of your medicine since it preserves the plant’s potentially healing cannabinoids and terpenes.


It allows for a customized cannabis experience 

Vaping cannabis allows you to have a more precise regulation over the temperatures in which you’re burning your cannabis compared to the one temperature offered by the joint. Plus, different cannabinoids and terpenes vaporize at different temperatures so you can really customize your experience both in flavour and effect. Vaping also allows you to enjoy the full flavour profile of your cannabis, and it’s become the preference for people who experience lung irritation, unwanted coughing, and even phlegm from smoking. Plus, there are tons of different vaporizers to choose from to suit your unique lifestyle, such as convenient portable vapes, desktop options, and even all-in-one models.
