Whether you’re a smoker or not, vaping is a hot trend right now that shows no signs of slowing down. Like anything new, there are pros and cons of using a vape pen. Know what you’re getting into before trying it out.
Pro: It Doesn’t Reek of Cigarettes
The seemingly infinite flavors of vape juice provide a huge variety to users. It doesn’t matter what you’re smoking; there is a flavor to mask the scent. You are not offending anyone with the scent and you have lots of options to choose from.
Con: We Aren’t Sure What its Long-Term Effects are Yet
Since vaping has only been a big deal since the early 2000s, it’s a little early to try and figure out what kinds of long-term effects it has on your health (if any). More research must be done for medical professionals to make a conclusive decision about its risks.
Pro: You Can Discreetly Smoke Close to Anything
Whether you’re a marijuana smoker or a tobacco smoker, there are cartridges available for you. If you’re waiting at the subway station you can take a puff and passerby will be none the wiser. The secret smoker can get a nice hit and nobody has to know.
Con: Police Officers Get Confused
Sad but true: The law is still under construction when it comes to marijuana and CBD oil. While CBD is perfectly legal and you can buy it with no traces of THC, police officers have been known to mistake it for its harder older sister. Come on guys, don’t you have anything better to do?
Pro: The Experience Can be Customized
The variety of vape juice has already been covered, but the add-ons you can buy to enhance your experience are also plentiful. The vape pens themselves come in so many colors, shapes and themes that there is something for everyone — not to mention the coils, charging kits, adapters and so many other toys that you can buy to help you enjoy it as much as possible.
Con: It Can Get Expensive
It all comes down to your budget and the experience you want, but vaping can be an expensive hobby. Look at several retailers to figure out where you want your money to go and how into it you want to get.
Weigh the pros and cons before deciding to get invested in vaping. You know yourself better than anyone, so only you can decide if it’s something you want to spend your time and money on.
