Why Vaping and Smoking Create Different Highs

Since vaping weed became popular, the debate over which method is more effective has raged among marijuana lovers everywhere.

For many marijuana lovers, pulling out a vape pen is preferable to rolling up joints or blunts for a variety of reasons. Vaping is often more convenient and discreet than smoking weed. Studies have also shown that vapes result in a better high than traditional methods of smoking weed.

There are still many marijuana enthusiasts who don't like vaping because of the simple fact that it offers a different height than smoking. There are many reasons for this that we will explore in this article. 


Combustion destroys terpenes

There are a variety of terpenes in cannabis that have a profound effect on how cannabis lovers feel when consuming it. When people choose to vape marijuana, they are more likely to notice the taste profiles of different strains because the terpenes don't get burned. This means flavor chasers can better seek out a strain that's right for their palate when vaping.

The combustion that occurs when a bowl or joint is lit up burns the terpenes that provide flavor. Combustion also destroys a number of cannabinoids that give the strains distinctive properties. 

Vaping allows cannabis enthusiasts to control the temperature levels of their equipment, which means it's easier to retain the nuances cannabis strains can provide. This is one of the main reasons that vaping marijuana often provides a different sensation than traditional smoking methods.


Vaping offers a cleaner high

Another reason the vape experience differs from traditional smoking is that it does not contain the harmful chemicals associated with smoking. That's probably part of the reason vaping makes pot lovers seem more energized. It is not uncommon for people to spend the rest of the day on the couch when they are smoking a joint or blunt. Vaping offers a cleaner, healthier way to have a productive day while still enjoying marijuana throughout the day as it's desired.


More THC enters the bloodstream

One of the biggest reasons vapes provide a different experience than smoking is the amount of THC that enters the bloodstream from when vaping. 

Vaping and smoking both allow THC to enter the bloodstream directly through the lungs. Even so, recent studies have shown that vaping can lead to higher levels of THC in the blood compared to smoking.

In one study, participants were each given 25 milligrams of THC to vape and 25 milligrams of THC for smoking. 

The 25mg THC group had what's called a "more significant drug effect" when vaping compared to smoking. This helps explain why vaping marijuana can make people higher than traditional smoking.

The science behind why vapes are more effective at providing a more potent high than smoking is still in its early stages, but the evidence so far is compelling.

So the next time someone tries to describe why vapes are not as effective as regular smoking methods such as bongs, pipes, and blunts, you can counter this informed response.

Lookah has recently launched some new vapes for 2022 that are perfect for vaping on the go.
