Are you an old school stoner? Do you prefer to pack up a bowl or bong to a dab rig? Or maybe roll up a joint or a blunt to a vape pen? If this sounds like you then don’t feel bad, there are many people out there who still prefer the “old fashion” way of smoking marijuana. There’s a lot of new information that shows that vaping is safer than smoking – but that doesn’t mean you have to quit smoking up. There are plenty of reasons that people still prefer smoking good old bud to the more modern vape liquids.
A More Mellow Buzz
One of the reasons that many people still prefer smoking to vaping is the fact that plain old bud provides a much more mellow buzz than the extremely potent extracts used in vape pen cartridges. If you’re not looking for an intense buzz, then a lower THC strain in bud form – or just a few puffs off something more potent – is exactly what you’re looking for. THC extracts are much more potent and often won’t include the same additional cannabinoids, flavonoids and terpenes that are found in bud.
A Richer Flavor and Aroma
Another reason that many still prefer flower to vapes is the potent and rich aroma and flavor that you get from bud. Remember those additional cannabinoids, flavonoids and terpenes you’re often missing out on by vaping? These are all found in bud and complete the robust flavor palette and strong aroma of the plant. Anyone who has ever opened a bag or jar of bud to be welcomed by the skunky sweet scent knows exactly what we’re talking about here.
It’s Less Expensive – Until You Build Tolerance
In most cases, bud is a lot less expensive than vape cartridges or wax for your dab rig. On average prices per gram are significantly higher for extracts – because you’re paying for something that someone had to process and because it is pure THC, CBD or a combination of the two. On the other hand, bud is rather inexpensive – but if you smoke a lot of it you might find yourself paying a lot more to keep yourself in supply. When this happens, you may switch it up to concentrates – but usually the best answer is a tolerance break.
Everyone has their own preferences when it comes to cannabis – many young adults seem to prefer the potency, flavor and convenience of vaping, but many stoners who have been around the block and back still prefer a premium quality bud.
