In today’s world joints, bongs, blunts, bowls and other forms of smoking just aren’t cool anymore. No, people are going towards the future and using cannabis vape pens.
Vape pens are discreet, don’t produce the intense smell, and are actually healthier because they don’t pollute users lungs with smoke. But with every pleasure and drug, there is risk to vaping.
According to a study made by the Jama Network Open found that vaping marijuana gets you more intensely high and quicker than just smoking weed. This can mean an array of things for different people such as more physical impairment, higher paranoia and anxiety, or straight up just getting that “too high” feeling, which can make a user very uncomfortable. Of course, this can also mean none of those things and a user just gets enjoyably high.
The study was conducted using 17 people of whom are infrequent smokers and haven’t consumed any cannabis for the past 30 days. In the experiment the test subjects were instructed to either vape or smoke weed, each with a different amount of THC, once a week, for six weeks.
After the study was concluded the researchers found that the people who used a vape, consuming the same amount of THC, became more physically impaired than their counterparts who had simply smoked the herb.The study showed that when a user vapes weed more cannabinoids are prevalent in the blood stream because fewer are lost because of the lack of combustion from when users smoke weed.
The study was able to conclude what most people who both smoke and vape weed already know, vaping gets you high, like way higher, but that ins’t necessarily a problem. It will just come down to how the individual user handles marijuana and if they are being responsible enough to use it the right way. Because marijuana is becoming more and more legal personal accountability for usage must be put out there because at the end of the day that is who the drug will be affecting, the user.
The study didn’t go in favor for vaping or smoking because it is just personal preference. If someone wants to get high out of their mind off a vape than they should be allowed to. Now after the stud there is no question that vaping is more potent. This just means that people have to use it responsibly just like any other legal.
