Vaping and smoking are similar in action but their method of operations is slightly different. Smoking is the act of breathing in and out of the smoke produced from a burnt substance e.g. weed, to be absorbed into the bloodstream. While vaping is the use of e-cigarettes for breathing in and out of gas containing nicotine. Recently, people tend to prefer vaping than smoking because it is believed to be less harmful to the lungs than smoking. The number of vapers are increasingly significant in recent years, with seven million vapers in 2011, it rose to 40 million in 2019, and it is expected to rise to 55 million by 2021.
A number of smokers that are shifting attention to vaping are less concerned about the risks that come with their actions. Instead, they are concerned with the option that can get them higher than the other. Smoking and vaping comes with their health risks, people engaging in the act are very much aware of this. Such people don’t mind the consequences, provided they are pleased with their immediate longings. Very few persons are can tame their weaknesses, they feel pained, but not bothered because of the need to satisfy themselves.
The increasing number of people vaping, is traceable to what has been discovered about the effect of vaping in comparison with smoking. Naturally, humans are wired to get value for purposeful engagements, especially when it comes to having fun. Their primary reason for vaping or smoking is to get high, it will be unacceptable as far as they are concerned, if they can’t get value for their actions. This is one major reason there is a massive growth of the vaping community as exposure to the act get to them. Getting high is the goal of smoking and vaping persons, that is why the option that can meet that goal is given the number one slot by the persons involved.
Advent of e-cigarette in 2004 got scientists thinking, by comparing both activities of vaping and smoking, to see if there is a difference between them. They weighed the options of both vaping and smoking, by making series of research; as usual, they have discovered things. Scientists checked for the health risks, and the one that get someone high more than the other.
According to findings published by Jama Network Open in 2018, where three scientists put heads together, and it was observed that irregular marijuana smoker, gets high with vaping than smoking. A selection of 17 smoking and vaping healthy adults, who were not regular smokers were examined. It resulted that, the effect of vaping is stronger than smoking. The research participants was a mix of men, with a significant number of women (8 out of 17). Breakdown of volunteers includes; 10 whites, 3 Hispanics, 3 blacks, and 1 white or Hispanic. Before the research was done, participants had not smoked for minimum 30 days. Although, the study was carried out on infrequent smokers, it is also applicable to regular smokers.
It would be in line therefore, to submit here that vaping effects makes higher than smoking. Energy levels of vapers are found to be higher than smokers after vaping or smoking. It implies that the effect of their actions is more pronounced in vaping than smoking, making vaping easier access to get higher than smoking.
Different products in the market comes with divers highness levels! Depending on what the manufacturer program as the Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) in milligram unit. But regardless of what was programmed from the factory, administration of drug can make a wide difference. Except there is only one permissible method of administration, but if users can decide between options such as smoking or vaping weed, then irrespective of the milligram quantity packages from the factory, opting for vaping will make high than smoking. Take drugs packaged in capsules for instance, the producers packaged them in that form to eradicate the bitterness effect of the drugs when they are taken. But, if a user is mindless of the bitterness of drug, in that case, it penetrates the bloodstreams faster, and produce expected result in shorter time. This scenario is applicable to vaping and smoking of weed because according to researchers, vaping works more effectively than smoking.
