Whats better: Vaporizing, Smoking or Eating Cannabis

Commented on November 04, 2013

Just was looking at info about cannabis and just trying to be more health concious as much as I can, while i know ill never be perfect regards to health, its all about reducing uncessary unhealthy habits as much as possible.

I was wondering if vaporizing has the same effects as smoking or eating cannabis, a lot of people say it is healthier. So i wanted to know how is it healthier like compared to the smoking, what benefits will you see and any drawbacks if any?

Does vaporizing cause your skin to become crap because every time I participated in smoking cannabis it always made skin worse the next couple days (i.e. dry skin, fine lines, wrinkles, etc) after so would vaporizing help my skin, maybe help it postively?

Would you agree smoking causes rapid aging of the skin and if so why? Would vaporizers avoid rapid aging of the skin or still the same effect?

Humans have been smoking pot since they discovered that you could make a wooden tube, connect it to a bowl with a hole on the side, stick dried plant matter in the bowl and throw in a red hot cinder to burn it.

Ironically, the "natural" way to consume pot is to smoke it(when you talk about humans).

geez, that explains it!!! I've never used a vaporizer (or seen one) but I will look into it. I had tried it for pain. I didn't notice it helping much with that- just made me too tired to think about my disease.

Joanna, when you consume it (eat it as opposed to vape/smoke,) your liver converts the THC to the more potent 11-THC which doesn't happen when you smoke it. This 11-THC is more psychedelic and trippy than the original compound. If you want to see if you'll extract any medical benefit from it, I'd recommend using a vaporizer. The high feels "cleaner" but certainly not more mild than smoking, but definitely more mild than eating it.

As someone who has suffered from acne and oily skin and other dematological issues since I was a kid, I have to say that your claim that "marijuana will cause side effects to skin" is bullshit. Marijuana does not affect your skin in any way, good or bad. If it did, I wouldn't use it since I don't want a recurrence of acne/eczema/whatever. In addition, I know dozens of people who smoke marijuana chronically and their skin is fine.

None of the above. Infusing it in coconut oil and rubbing it into your skin is best. Second to that is eating it; your body has a chance to process it in the way that it wants to (as opposed to smoking, which is a direct injection of cannabinoids crossing the BBB).

I've only ever eaten it and it is really strong. I was so stoned the 3 times I ate it. I can't imagine eating it again to be honest. All I did was sleep and laugh the whole three days. I made weed tea- emptied a tea bag and filled it with weed. put a few tablespoons of butter in the water to boil the tea with. it tasted delicious but I had no health benefits from it.

eating is best, but man it makes you go crazy and you have to find good quality weed oil. btw don't ever try weed oil in butter in bulletproof coffee... trust me, that was a BADDDD experiment on a sunday... vaporizing is good if you want to smoke it, avoid smoking as much as possible because the burning creates the THC crap

If you're a big time stoner it would probably be best to carefully source your bud and use a high quality vaporizer or multi-chamber bong. I live in SoCal and I know some of the methods used to grow the local stuff are pretty scary - chemical laiden and completely not hippy-happy-natural.

Binging on the stuff will always cause side effects to skin, mind, and body. Eating is good if it's organic but most of it contains nasties you wouldn't want in your food and there's probably reason not to eat the good stuff too. Smoking of course creates cacinogens but since we don't use the kinds of quantities people do in tobacco, at least most of us, you're not going to get lung cancer or anything.

Personally, I don't use much these days. I'm not afraid of what lurks in those tiny quantities I use so I just pop it in a pipe.

Do you have a relationship with the grower? Do you know anything about the chiznit that goes into that bud? Could freak you out...

Eating would probably be the 'healthiest.' But you have to watch for commercial-grown bud boosters and growth enhancers and such. Temp and load-size is also a factor, as well as the air-path materials in the vape (some are all-glass, others all-plastic.) Smoking is obviously the crudest / most toxic way to go about it. I like the direction the vapeXhale guys are going.

smoking is inhaling smoke, as im sure you know. vaporizing is kind of like evaporating... think of boiling water, it heats up the juana enough to pull out the compounds without all the tar/crap that comes from burning stuff.

i would say 'not smoking', not sure about the (+) and (-) of eating vs vaporizing. from a purely philosophical perspective maybe eating it is more natural.... not that-that counts for anything without further evidence.
