Hebalize Store Explains Vape Vs Pipe
Pipe vaporizer or a vape is a device that creates vapor that you inhale. A pipe, well that is a device that with a bit of fire creates smoke which you then inhale.
Vaping is a modern trend, but even new vapes have their roots in ancient history. Ancient Egypt is known for its vaping techniques, such as using hot stones to vape herbs. Thousands of years ago the first shisha was introduced to India. All those techniques led to the invention of current vapes as we know them today.
Smoking a pipe is also a very old tradition, with roots dating more than 2400 years. Wooden pipes were used all across the globe and now, though much less popular, are still in use in Scandinavia.
Powered by electricity to heat up the substance to create a gas which you inhale. There are three types: Standard (Table-top), Portable and Air-Forced. For the purpose of this article we will focus on the Portable Vapes aka Vape Pens since Pipes are also portable. Vape Pens also come in three types: Buttonless, Push Button and All-in-one disposable. Vape Pens can be Oil filled or Dry Herb filled. So yeah, so far you can see that you have more than one choice when getting a vaporizer.
Powered by the stolen gift of the titan Prometheus so we could burn tobacco (and or other plants) in our wooden pipes and sit by an even greater fire, around a hearth and inhale the smoke that once was the tobacco plant. Used for thousands of years through human history as in peace as was in war, later became a gentleman’s trademark. Made from wood, brass or even ivory. The pipe was an inspiration for the British society to invent the title “The Smoker of The Year” and “kapnismology” the study of smoke. But today our fast lives don’t allow for the slow cleaning and preparation of the smokers pipe.
Are They so Different?
It’s yes and a no kind of answer. Vapes (for argument sake here we will focus on Dry Herb vapes) don’t burn the plant. The plant is beforehand ground and packed in th
e ceramic or metal heating chamber also known as “an oven”. Not tightly though, because airflow is needed to help the evaporating substances leave the oven freely. The temperature is seven times less than that of a smoking pipe, so you inhale vapor, not smoke. A smoking pipe burns the plant and creates a tar and other by-products that damage your lungs and respiratory system and that smoke is the prime cause of cancer.
Do not fear, no one is forcing you to pick and choose between the two. There is a third option, a bridge to help connect the Vape Pen and Pipe enthusiasts. A portable Dry Herb Vaporizer that looks like a traditional Pipe, the Pipe Vaporizer. It has the best of two worlds the classy looks of a gentlemen’s Pipe and the health and taste of a cleaner and more eco, second-hand smoke-free vaporizer.
