Will a vaporizer make it easier to inhale vs. other inhalation methods?
My friend is totally sold on the health benefits and aware that there may be a difference in the effects. He has tried other smoking methods and found them to be...difficult. He thinks he has overly sensitive lungs or maybe it's just taking longer to get used to that he would like (he has never smoked cigarettes or anything else).
Pipes are just terrible and met with massive coughing fits. Joints are better but only for the first few pulls. A bong worked okay but is kind of lot of equipment and is a little too conspicuous, still involves lots of coughing, and according to one study
, the least healthy.
He has turned to edibles for health reasons but would still like an option that will take effect quickly, be a little more controllable in terms of dose, and not need a ton of prep work up front (IE: baking some brownies or making a tincture).
In theory, the vapor from a vaporizer (likely an Arizer Extreme Q
used in the whip style configuration) will solve all of these problems by using a much lower temperature and not having any actual smoke and the other combustion products that come with all of that. But it seems that no one who uses and talks about vaporizers ever had problems with other inhalation methods like my friend does.
So, is there anyone out there who has switched from joints/bongs/pipes to a vaporizer and noticed that it was much easier to use?
