For centuries, the consumption of marijuana has long been limited to smoking the flower through a joint or blunt. However, with the rise of the modern world, the practice of vaping marijuana came into the light and provided a new alternative for the loud and proud cannabis enthusiasts.
But which is better between the two? For decades, this question has been a subject of debate for many cannabis users. Should one opt to remain faithful to the classic smoking of marijuana roll, or should he/she choose to embrace vaporization in its full grandeur?
Here, we have compiled 5 reasons why vaping is better than smoking a marijuana.
To cut to the chase, here they are:
Vaping Cannabis offers More Pronounced Flavor
Let’s face it. Nothing gives you the full flavor of marijuana other than vaping. By vaporizing the plant, you are more likely to taste all the delicate differences in its flavor. Unlike when smoking, vaping does not burn the plant to a carcinogen crisp; thus, making the flavor taste much cleaner, clearer … and yes, yummier.
Plus, you can actually set the temperature of your vape through its setting. With this, you can have full control over the texture and flavor of your cannabis and tune them according to your taste like a pro. Although it will probably take a lot of effort and trial to arrive at the best temperature that suits your preference, taking a try will definitely bring you a range of effects that could take from mild to intense euphoric experiences.
Safer Cannabis experience
Ever since the debut of vape pens in the market, various studies have already been conducted in relation to the health benefits of vaping. Generally, burning plant material produces a multitude of compounds that are harmful to human health, such as carcinogens and tar. However, by vaping cannabis, you can reduce these harmful by-products and expose yourself to safer and inhalable vapor.
Although there are still yet to discover about vaporizing cannabis, recent studies on vaping nicotine revealed that vaporizing cigarettes is about 95% safer than traditional smoking. From there, many are quick to take a huge leap and make the same assumption with marijuana.
Smoking marijuana is almost heavenly. That’s a shared knowledge every cannabis enthusiast agrees on. But how about the plant’s odor? Now, that’s something that might call for a debate. For many, smoking cannabis can be the perfect leisure activity if only without its strong, earthy smell. Thanks to vaping, you can now enjoy the flavor of marijuana without its harsh odor.
Although some vapes do still emit a noticeable vapor and smell, most devices are much more discreet than smoking a blunt. Thus, you can now savor the heavenly taste of cannabis without the hassles of the stubborn smell of marijuana smoke that could linger around for days in your clothes and furniture.
Compared to the traditional smoking of marijuana roll, vaping promises a more instantaneous effect to users, kicking off from 1 to 3 minutes and lasting from 1 to 3 hours. This is because vaping delivers a higher amount of THC compared to smoking. In fact, in a collaborative study conducted by California NORML and MAPS, it was revealed that vaporizing marijuana could convert 46% of its THC into vapor. This is superior compared to the average marijuana roll, which could convert less than 25% of THC into vapor. The THC, or the Tetrahydrocannabinol, is the principal psychoactive constituent of cannabis, which is responsible for producing the “high” sensation related to the use of marijuana.
Savoring cannabis has never been more heavenly with the practice of vaping. Want to go way beyond the typical and experience the extraordinary? Try for yourself and see the difference. Here is a guide for CBD vape oil.

Ontario Cannabis Gardeners Form New Fall Tradition
With Canada’s marijuana community celebrating its first year of legalization last week, Ontario home gardeners are harvesting their first cannabis yields this fall. With this, residents of the province are forming a new fall tradition in which they harvest their cannabis plants in preparation for the incoming winter.
Katy Perry, the owner of a hydroponic supply store in Toronto, said that “now is the most exciting time of growing at home” because the plants are “finally ready to be chopped down, dried, cured and consumed.”
Home Growers’ Harvest Season
Ontarian growers who made their first harvests this fall have been cultivating their crops since the summer. With the summer being the plant’s growing season and fall being the right time to harvest yields, this is guaranteed to become a tradition for Ontario residents.
One resident, Kat Milevic, preferred to try outdoor gardening using the marijuana plant. She said that “outdoor plants can get bigger,” but poses more issues compared to indoor plants. She cited mildew and molds are primary enemies of outdoor crops. This is true especially as the freezing season nears.
In helping Canadians start their legal gardens, experts are offering classes that teach new growers the right techniques from planting, cultivating, harvesting and battling issues. Expert grower Matt Soltys, who teaches outdoor growing classes, said that planting early in the summer is the best way.
Soltys also noted that the cultivation offers empowerment as it allows people to provide for their own wants and needs.
Ontario Cannabis Laws
This month marks the first time that Ontarians are making their first harvest despite Canada still banning the cultivation of the plant for recreational purposes, said Toronto Storeys.
This is made possible by Ontario’s Cannabis Control Act, which allows individuals 19 years old and above to cultivate and harvest the plant. According to the Ontario Cannabis Control Act 2017, “no person under 19 years of age shall cultivate, propagate or harvest” the plant, nor offer to do so.
The Act also elaborates that residents are allowed to cultivate a maximum of four crops per residence. These plants must be grown using seeds bought from legal cannabis stores or the online Ontario Cannabis Store (OCS). Moreover, the law states that residents can grow outdoor crops on their balconies, rooftops and garden.
As of this writing, the OCS reported that they sold around 7,500 seeds (packed in four) since its opening.
