Do vapes remove all the bad stuff?
Posted 18 March 2012 - 09:12 PM
I've read mixed things about vapes, some say they remove all of the tar and carcinogens etc and others say it removes around 80-90%. After checking out a few videos on YouTube i noticed a lot of the clear pipes and attachments become stained with a dark brown substance. Is this tar?
Im really thinking about getting one but still a bit unclear about how healthy they really are.
Any advice much appreciated.

I don't think vapes remove 100% of the bad stuff (will vary depending on what temp you use) but it is certainly better for your lungs than smoke.

vapes burn trichs this pops the bubble on the top and maybe the walls of the stem of the trichome(im not sure about that )
when the bubble bursts the chemicals (cannaboids) inside are released and these chemicals in this state are cannabis resin oil. I would say this oil is heated by the vape and consumed as a gas and that the substance around the bottom of the tube is mixture of oil and air filtered (by breathe) hash (unpopped trichomes/resin heads).
How bad this is for your respiratory system will, im fairly sure depend entirely on the quality of the weed you are smoking.
Im not saying that in-organic nutes will cause the trichs to have a dangerous content but it may.
What is the content of a trichome and how much of each of these chemical components are dangerous to whom in what amounts? unfortunately not something i can answer, although i will be investigating this matter further (search engine stylee) but,
If you stick to organic weed through a vapourisor then you should be fine (+ stoned).
organic cannabis oil is used to treat diseases and health problems such as lung cancer and asthma.
Id say u r alot more at risk from other everyday air born dangers such as motor exhaust fumes then u would be from smoking organic weed through a good a vape in my opinion.

I let my wand build up with the resin for at least 8 weeks of everyday use
Cheers guys, I saw one of the vids on YouTube and this guy was scraping the resin from the whip, said it was good stuff and he did this atleast once a week. Doesn't the resin contain any tar?
Scrap it out with a pokey and end up with a nice little piece of very soft ash
Witch I then put back Into my vape on top of some fresh bud
What a lovely treat.
Night time only.knockout,

Atheism is merely absence of belief.
Atheists believe free will is illusory and non atheists believe death is illusory.

If the sticky build up doesn't smell foul like tar (and it doesn't) then it's not containing the same stuff.

Its very nice to vape,very nice indeed,
Wish I had a ounce of it that's for sure,
