One of the best aspects of consuming cannabis in 2021 is the fact that there are so many more consumption methods to choose from than was the case just a few years ago.

While stoners of yesteryear may have been restricted to bowls and blunts, nowadays cannabis can be enjoyed using all types of elaborate bongs, pipes and vaporizers.

In recent years, no method seems to have gained more steam among consumers than vaping. There are good reasons for the rise in popularity, too.

Some regard vaping as healthier than smoking, but another attraction may be that vaping cannabis can generally produce a different experience entirely than smoking. A few differences between smoking cannabis and marijuana include those below.

One downside of smoking marijuana the old-fashioned way is that so much of the taste goes to waste. After taking a drag of a joint or a blunt, the taste will likely be that of smoke or the faint flavour of the sweet tobacco of a blunt wrap.

Since vaporizers eliminate the use of a traditional flame, it’s easier to pick up on the natural flavour of the buds. And for consumers who aren’t used to the natural taste of their cannabis without the accompanying smoke, a vaporizer could be a game-changer.

There’s no replacing the natural taste of cannabis, especially when it’s not coupled with the toxins that smoking produces.

A functionality that most dry herb vaporizers provide is the ability to change the temperature at which the cannabis is being vaporized. This provides consumers with control over how high they get.

Additionally, that functionality offers consumers comfort given that they know exactly how much of a punch each draw provides. That makes for a vastly different experience than relying on papers, bowls or bongs to do the job.

While those traditional methods may be enjoyable, anyone with enough experience using them knows there’s no way to control the effect they may have.

Last but not least, vaporizing cannabis is the best way to get as much bang for the buck as possible.

Combustion can lead to wasting as much as 30 per cent of the THC in marijuana. By choosing to vape marijuana instead, users can expect a more intense high.

Essentially, any cannabis consumer hoping to catch a stronger buzz without increasing the amount they spend should look into vaping marijuana instead of smoking it.

There are also recreational benefits to getting familiar with vaporizing cannabis. With many different vaporizers on the market that feature different capabilities, once getting comfortable using a vaporizer of one’s choice, a consumer may never smoke another joint again.
