Although it is still a fairly smoky subject, many tobacco and cannabis users are officially ditching their smoking habits in favor of vaporizing. For those who are yet unfamiliar, vaping refers to a safer/ healthier method of inhaling as there’s no combustion involved. Quickly becoming a trend, while some are stuck in the past, many are interested in the future of vaping.
That said, the following is an overview in terms of why this is happening as well as the future of this trend.
Firstly, although this matter is still being debated, many professionals within the scientific community have expressed their support for vaping products over smoking. Given that tobacco products are often used for smoking, as well as the many dangers that are associated with smoking tobacco product, it makes perfect sense why this community would be in favor of vaping over smoking. Either way, due to the fact that the public typically trusts those in the scientific community to provide their recommendations, vaping is becoming increasingly popular due to their support.
In addition to that, as the world is becoming increasingly health conscious, anything containing less chemicals is a plus. Obviously by removing tobacco products from your smoking regimen, you’ll be much better off. Although there are some chemicals associated with vape use, on the whole, these chemicals are far less harsh than those used in tobacco products. If you’re smoking cannabis, the burning herb releases dangerous chemicals which aren’t present in dry herb vape pens. If you’re unsure about what these pens actually are, take a look at this vape guideline by Vaping 360 which can give you more detailed information.
As well as less chemicals, vaping also allows users to save money. Although it may seem like you are spending more money by purchasing vaping products, if you are smoking on a regular basis, you are better off with a vaping pen. You may be visiting your local store for tobacco supplies on the weekly or even daily basis. By purchasing a high-quality vaporizer, you can go weeks, months, or even years without having to purchase any substantial amount of supplies.
Second Hand Smoke
The dangers of second-hand smoke inhalation have become a huge concern in recent years. Among other serious illnesses, second-hand smoke can cause cancer. For this reason, many are opting to either quit smoking altogether or switch to vaping. Although the effects of vaping are still being argued, the vapor released into the atmosphere is clearly much less harsh than those being released into the air when smoking.
Lastly, many laws prohibit both the indoor smoking of tobacco products and the public smoking of cannabis altogether. For this reason, vaping is preferable for both tobacco and cannabis users. While it is still illegal to smoke cannabis in many places, those laws are quickly changing, and certain states are now able to partake in cannabis use.
On the flip side, there are many areas (such as New York) who have long since banned the indoor use of such products, and others that are preparing to follow suit. By getting in on the vaping game early, you will save yourself the time and trouble of being forced to switch to it later.
Overall, people are ditching smoking in favor of vaping for many reasons. On the one hand, trends exist in society and, even when hazardous (i.e. smoking tobacco) they still tend to take a while before the trends run their course. Luckily, in the case of vaping, this is actually a far superior method of addressing health concerns with regards to recreational smoking. This means that vaping is not only trendy, it’s also useful, and this rare combination is the top reason it will likely be around for quite some time.
Think about it, if something as dangerous as tobacco can become a popular pastime, how long do you think the public at large will favor the much healthier alternative, vaping? Although the answer to this question remains to be seen, it should be clear the for the time being, vaping is here to stay!
