Kicking The Habit: Using Vape Pens To Quit Smoking
Overall, smoking rates have been falling as we have come to realize the negative impact cigarettes have on our health. The American Cancer Society claims that of the 44 million smokers in America, the majority of them want to quit.
Of course, anyone who has tried to kick the habit knows it’s not an easy task. As a result, the medical world is always on the lookout for quit smoking aids. Over the past few years, vape pens have made their way into this scene, and are being touted as an effective solution.
Cannabis vape pens are already playing a role in the medical world, ranging from medical marijuana to needle replacements. Quitting smoking appears to be one more medical use for vape pens.
In this article, we examine some of the ways vape pens can help smokers quit.
A Healthier & Safer Alternative to Cigarettes
Every grade school anti-smoking assembly hammered home the damaging contents of cigarettes. What they often left out is, that as bad as some of the ingredients were, the greatest cause of carcinogens was from the method of burning the ingredients.
Vaporizers offer a much cleaner burn than smoking. Vapor is a safer alternative to smoke. A vape pen is able to offer a stronger and more precise energy output for a cleaner burn. Combining this with our ceramic core technology, which allows the coil to vaporize the substance without direct contact, results in a vapor without a burnt flavor or quality.
Between the cleaner burn and the safer ingredients, vape pens are a great alternative to the carcinogens of cigarettes.
Next to the addictive nature of nicotine, one of the hardest parts about quitting smoking is getting past the habits. One of the common tropes of former smokers is an oral fixation. Popular media depicts ex-smokers chewing gum, lollipops, and hard candies.
In reality, that trope is not far off. The habits you form while smoking are difficult to break. Quitting often involves replacing bad habits with new ones. Sure, a lollipop is full of sugar – but it’s not as harmful as a cigarette.
Quitting smoking with vape pens offers a familiar feel. The pens have a similar shape and ritual to smoking a cigarette, so it’s an easy transition. This makes it easier to wean off cigarettes as you move to vaping non-addictive oils.
Overcoming nicotine cravings is one of the hardest parts of quitting smoking. Cannabis vape pens offer a potential solution. Vaping CBD oil may help smokers quit. CBD has been shown to reduce cravings, withdrawal symptoms, and smoking cues.
Currently, this testing is still in its early stages, but it’s looking promising. In fact, there are even some studies that show CBD can help overcome opioid addictions. CBD vape pens appear to reduce cravings and decrease addict behavior.
