Smoking or incensing releases vaporizable ingredients through heat, but the temperature is reached through combustion which has several disadvantages. The process of combustion destroys a significant amount of the vaporizable ingredients leaving behind a large amount of toxic substances. The unavoidable inhalation of toxic substances causes irritation of the respiratory tract as well as a harsh odor.
Vaporizing takes a healthier approach by releasing the active ingredients in a gentle way, providing you with a higher quality vapor experience. Aside from the health benefits, vaporization is economically beneficial. The amount of plant material left behind is much less when compared to smoking, which saves you money over time.
