Does Vaping Get You Higher Than Smoking?

Many people today enjoy the use of marijuana and that leads to the question, does vaping get you higher than smoking in 2018? While some claim that vaping will get you higher, it does not. However, it does give you a different type of high without that harsh coughing of smoking.

General Weed Feeling

There are general feelings you will feel from all three ways to ingest weed. One thing that is general for all types of weed is altered sensory perceptions.

These altered sensory perceptions may cause one to feel happy and see the world in a beautiful way. Colors may seem brighter and the world is just a happier place. However, it can go the complete opposite way. You may see the world as harsh or grim instead of happy. This would be known as a bad high. People who experience a bad high are more likely not to smoke again than those who are receiving a good high.

To avoid a bad high simply do not ingest weed in any way if you are in an unpleasant or angry mood. If you are in a good mood that is the best time to try weed.

Weed will alter your mood or mental state. Many people relate a weed high to feeling happy as if they were drunk. You may not make decisions in the best way while you are high or stoned.

Smoking Weed

When you thinking about trying weed many people will smoke it. This would include pipes, bongs, joints, and blunts. Any of these ways could cause you to cough. This high will be harsh on your throat. If you take too big of a hit of weed your throat could feel like it is on fire. You are going to use a lighter to light any of these ways to smoke. When you smoke you will feel different things such as:

  • Happiness
  • Drowsiness
  • Hunger (Munchies)
  • Giggles

Solid Vapes

Solid vapes are the type of vape that you are more likely to receive a high from. These types of vapes are designed to vaporize the compounds of botanicals. You can use many different herbs in a solid vape. One of the most common herbs used is marijuana. Solid vapes are designed to have ground herbs in them and when the vape heats up the plant inside will release the chemical that will give you a high. This type of vape will produce less vapor clouds but depending on what you are putting in the vape, you will receive a very extreme high. In an extreme high you may experience:

  • Hallucinations (more common with an extreme high)
  • Increased Heart Rate
  • Cotton Mouth (Dry Mouth)
  • Giggling (Everything is funnier)
  • Slower Perception of Time

Vaping Weed

If you are vaping weed you are going to be using a system that heats up the weed to extract the THC (component that gets you high). This is true for a vape pen that is easily able to be carried or a larger vape machine. You will put your grinded weed into this system and it will heat. This allows for a smoother hit. It does not make you feel like your throat is on fire either. You may experience:

  • A quicker high
  • Smoother hit
  • Happiness
  • Hunger
  • Giggles
  • A Different type of high
