As 2019 finally draws to a close, several of us will spend some time taking stock on the past year and considering any improvements we can make in 2020.
One change that many of us will be making is to quit smoking for good.
I’ve tried to quit smoking several years in a row and have always failed. However, this year, I have managed to keep this promise to myself thanks to my dry herb vaporizer.
A Dry herb vaporizer is a device used to vape cannabis flowers. It produces similar effects as a joint, but instead of smoke, produces vapour instead.
There are several best vaporizer lists to help find the best model for you but below are two reasons you should swap your joint for a cannabis vaporizer today.
Your lungs will be healthier
Smoking anything, even cannabis is bad for your health.
When you light a joint, the weed inside burns at over 1100c and produces over 150 carcinogens and toxins. Over time, these dangerous chemicals congeal in the lungs and eventually lead to an increased risk of diseases including lung cancer and chronic bronchitis.
On the other hand, dry herb vaporizers only heat your weed to maximum temperatures of 250c. This is hot enough to turn the yummy cannabinoids and terpenes into vapour but cool enough to leave the carcinogenic plant matter in the oven and out of your lungs.
You can better control your high
Cannabinoids are compounds that naturally occur in the cannabis plant. They react with specific cannabinoid receptors in the human body and have various effects on the brain and central nervous system.
THC and CBD may be the most well-known but did you know that in recent years, science has identified a further 120 cannabinoids, each of which has a different effect on the human body.
These cannabinoids have their own separate boiling points and evaporate at different temperatures.
When you smoke a joint, you have no choice over the temperature. Conversely, the majority of cannabis vaporizers now provide precise control over the temperature you vape at.
Generally, temperatures lower than 180c produce a cerebral, energetic effect whilst temperatures over 190c produce a sedative, body effect.
