THC vapes are currently causing a stir among vape enthusiasts across the country. THC vapes are now available in many online and tobacco stores, owing to the popularity of the vaping culture.
But how well do you know THC gummies? It turns out that many people, both vapers and non-vapers, are entirely unaware of the ever-popular THC vapes. As a result, we have collected users’ stories about THC vape. So here are five stories about THC vapes that you probably didn’t know.
What exactly are THC vapes?
THC Vapes are battery-powered marijuana inhalers that include a rechargeable lithium battery, a cartridge, and occasionally an LED that illuminates when you inhale from the device. The e-liquid put inside the cartridge usually contains THC oil, the chemical propylene glycol, nicotine, flavoring, and other additives.
The device functions similarly to a miniature version of the smoke machines used by rock bands. When you “vape,” a heating element boils the e-liquid, creating vapor. No matter how hard you puff, a device produces the same amount of vapor until the battery or e-liquid runs out.
Most vapes are designed to heat cannabis concentrates just below the point of combustion, usually between 180 and 190 degrees Celsius (356 to 374 Fahrenheit). Unlike smoking, which can destroy many terpenes and minor cannabinoids found in cannabis, vaping THC can activate more of these compounds. A device with accurate temperature controls allows you to select a temperature appropriate for the cannabinoid or terpene of your choice.
5 amazing stories about THC vapes that may come as a surprise to you
We wanted to share some of our amusing THC vape stories with you that most people have never heard of! It’s never too late to learn new things in the cannabis industry. So read on to have a look at the exciting stories:
People are claiming that THC Vapes have limited their nicotine intake.
Many THC vapes allow you to adjust the nicotine level, which is why so many claims that vaping helped them quit smoking altogether. In addition, many THC vapes include cartridges with varying nicotine levels or even no nicotine. This enables an individual to continue smoking (a significant component of addiction) while receiving less and less nicotine. Some of the best THC products even include a small button on the product that will automatically adjust your nicotine intake for you.
Users have stated that THC vapes have decreased their annual expenditure on smoking.
Smokers who consume one pack of cigarettes daily spend at least $1,000 annually. THC vapes cost roughly half that amount per year. Using THC vapes, you could smoke the equivalent of a bunch of cigarettes a day for less than $600 a year. A starter kit costs between $30 and $100, but the cost of replacement cartridges—each of which lasts longer than an entire pack of cigarettes—becomes much more affordable.
THC vapes have helped many users in quitting tobacco smoking
THC vaping could assist smokers in switching from potentially harmful tobacco habits to potentially less harmful electronic smoking because they maintain the hand-to-mouth smoking routine. Nevertheless, there is little evidence to hold up this theory.
In a groundbreaking study published in the medical journal Lancet last fall, researchers compared e-cigarettes to nicotine patches and other tobacco cessation techniques. They discovered that they were statistically comparable in their ability to aid smokers in quitting over six months. As a result, the devices appear promising, though they are unlikely to be a panacea. For the time being, vaping marketers cannot promote their products as a way to quit smoking without first getting approval from FDA as medical devices and demonstrating that they work to help users quit.
Vaping and e-cigarettes could save thousands of lives.
As per the clinical study published in the British Journal of General Practice (by a team of researchers from University College London), vaping could save up to 6,000 lives per million smokers yearly. It is alleged that users of electronic cigarettes inhale vaporized liquid nicotine rather than the toxic substances present in tobacco.
He claimed that e-cigarettes should be unrestricted due to the adverse effects of their primary comparator, tobacco. However, The World Health Organization has advised consumers not to use e-cigarettes until they have been proven safe. They stated that the potential risks “remain unknown” and that the contents of the vapor emissions have not been thoroughly studied.
Any agency or government does not regulate THC vapes up until today.
Despite a 2011 federal court case that granted the FDA the authority to regulate e-smokes under current tobacco laws rather than as a medication or medical device, it is presumed that e-cigarettes and vapes remain unregulated by the government today. This is because they deliver nicotine, which is derived from tobacco.
The agency had indicated it would start regulating them this year. Still, its only action against the products to date was a letter sent in 2010 to distributors of THC vapes and electronic cigarettes warning them to stop making several unsupported marketing claims.
What Do Experts Say About THC Vaping’s Effects?
According to studies, inhaling THC oil, mainly oil containing vitamin E acetate, is highly harmful to the lungs. When THC is ready for use in e-cigarettes and vaping devices, Vitamin E acetate is added. When inhaled, this additive is dangerous.
The CDC warns against using e-cigarettes and vaping devices, particularly those that contain THC oil. The FDA has supported the CDC in this effort.
The Final Word
Although THC is regarded as safe and non-addictive, many of its effects depend on how you use it. But when you vape it, it has effects on your body and brain that are frequently unexpected (some negative and some positive). Due to this, we recommend you use it infrequently and never daily to avoid any adverse effects on the body and mind. Knowing these risks is essential when deciding whether to consume cannabis or vape.
