Vaperite and Cannarite: Smoking vs Vaping Cannabis

[vc_column_text]The smoking of cannabis has been around for years for both its medicinal and psychoactive properties. Despite its health benefits, the actual inhalation of combustion based smoke can hold some pretty negative side effects similar to those caused by tobacco smoking.

In recent years, the vaping of cannabis has taken a front seat since it poses fewer health risks than traditional forms of smoking. Recent studies have found that the vaping of cannabis allows the substance to be heated to an appropriate temperature that not only allows the full effect of the substance but also the release of cannabinoids without any of the usual toxins created by combustion.

Vaping cannabis can be done through dry herb vaporizers, oil pens and wax pens.

This is where Vaperite and Cannarite come in.[/vc_column_text]

What is Vaping?

‘‘Vaping’’ is the inhalation of vapour that is created through the careful heating of a liquid/substance. Vaping is a less harmful, far less invasive method of smoking than traditional cigarette or burning based smoking.

Whilst traditional smoking subjects individuals to the inhalation of thousands of chemicals, vaping whether tobacco or cannabis, harbours far fewer contaminants.

Studies show that burning based smoke can hold over 7000 different chemicals when inhaling it whilst specialised vaping devices subject the respiratory system to far fewer.[/vc_column_text]


Vaping Cannabis

Pen vaporizers for marijuana, or marijuana like herbs such as tobacco, are often much safer than alternative smoking methods. Vaping cannabis is often more potent than other methods due to the consistency in its concentration.

There are three ways that cannabis can be vaped:

  • Dry Herb
  • Oil Pens
  • Wax Pens



Dry Herb

Dry cannabis flowers can be smoked using dry herb vaporizers also known as portable vaporizers for marijuana. Even though this is the same substance used in a spliff or a joint, the vaping device only heats the flower enough to release cannabinoids in a concentrated vapour without as many carcinogens.

You can also choose to smoke tobacco this way by using dry tobacco vaporizers or pen vaporizers for herbs.

Dry herb vaporizers /cannabis vaporizers also give you the choice to change the temperature settings. This could be because you want to alter the flavour or amount of vapour that you are inhaling.

Oil Pens

Oil pens rely on cannabis oil concentrate rather than dry herb. As a result of its extraction, vaporized cannabis oil is more potent than the dry herb option. Oil pens can either be refilled or disposed of when the oil is depleted. These oils come in various flavours and strains and are often more suitable for beginners.

Wax Pens

Cannabis wax is a higher concentration of active compounds than oil or dry herb. It is because of this that this vaping method is thought of as the easiest way to reap the therapeutic effects of cannabis.[/vc_column_text]



Cannabidiol (CBD) is a natural compound found in cannabis, specifically the hemp plant. CBD is often used for its therapeutic benefits such as:

  • Relieving inflammation
  • Tackling anxiety
  • Alleviating depression
  • Reducing pain
  • Relieving epilepsy

Cannarite CBD liquid vape does not produce the “high” effect that is synonymous with cannabis use. Rather, CBD vape oil contains very little THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) which is the component of cannabis that induces the ‘high’.[/vc_column_text]


How Does Vaping Cannabis Compare to Smoking Cannabis?

The dangers of using cannabis come with the toxins released by the burning of the substance. With vaping, these cancer-causing substances are drastically reduced since the cannabis is heated at a much lower temperature that does not require combustion.

Since the traditional method of smoking cannabis requires that it is burnt, more toxins and carcinogens (cancer-causing substances) can be expected upon each inhalation. Traditional smoking also gives way to multiple side-effects not found in vaping, such as:

  • Impaired immune system
  • Increased general inflammation
  • Blockages in arteries and veins
  • Cancer risks
  • Increased risk of a stroke

As a result of the vapour production of vaping devices, there are fewer side effects on the respiratory system such as coughing and chest tightness.[/vc_column_text]


Benefits of Vaping

The vaping of cannabis is overall more beneficial than smoking. This is because:

  • Consistent dose: If you happen to be smoking cannabis with a higher THC content, it is a more consistent dose when vaping as opposed to smoking. Each inhalation will have the same THC content.
  • Cleaner: Since there is no combustion needed, vaping cannabis provides a cleaner hit than smoking.
  • Temperature control: Having control over the temperature of your vape (including dry herb vaporizers) means deciding between different experiences that can come about from the use of cannabis. None of which is possible with traditional smoking.
  • Safer than smoking: Not only does vape eliminate the need for combustion, but also reduces the number of toxins and carcinogens usually found in smoking.
  • Less of a smell: Even though vapes aren’t 100% odourless, the weed odour is drastically reduced when choosing to use a vape.

Smoking Cannabis

Vaping is not the only way to smoke cannabis. Traditionally cannabis is smoked as joints, blunts, bongs and dabs.

Joints and Blunts

The main difference between joints and blunts is that the former is freshly rolled while the latter is rolled in hollowed-out cigars/cigar wrappers.

Joints are often referred to as the better option since they are not composed of more toxic cigar wrappers found in blunts.

If you are interested in rolling your own joints, have a look at the Vaperite store. Cannarite offers products such as:



Bongs For Sale At Vaperite and Cannarite

Not only do Vaperite and Cannarite offer vaping tools, but they also sell bongs and related paraphernalia for the seasoned cannabis enthusiasts.  At Vaperite and Cannarite you can also expect to find dabs, cones and other elements that can be used in the rolling process.


Bongs are devices used for the smoking of cannabis. These filtration devices are similar to hookahs or hubbly.

Any kind of bongs for sale might feel less invasive on your lungs, but they are virtually the same as smoking a joint. Since bongs still involve the combustion element, they carry the same toxins as smoking.

The main difference is that bongs offer a smoother inhalation than joints because the dry heat is altogether replaced. Vaporite has many bongs for sale, including glass bongs and glass pipes, online and in-store.[/vc_column_text]


Bongs For Sale

Bongs for sale at Cannarite include:

Cannarite has many cool bongs for sale. Bong prices range anywhere from R450- R3100.


Dabs are more concentrated forms of cannabis that can be smoked or added to a vaping device.

Dabs or wax have a higher concentration of THC than the other methods mentioned above. Dabs can be anywhere up to around 4 times stronger than your average joint and are therefore not for the faint-hearted.
