First off, you need to understand the difference between the vaping high and the smoking high. There is a huge difference between the two, so if you end up buying one, don't expect the same experience. This blog post can help you to have a better understanding about this issue: How to Choose a Vaporizer: Vaporizer high or Smoking high?
It's one of the most efficient way to smoke weed. You could stretch out your marijuana consumption over a longer period of time if you were properly using your vaporizer. Within a year or less, depending on your usage, you will save a lot of money on your bud. Already Vaped Bud (AVB) can be reused several time and eventually make edibles with it. Important note; DO NOT smoke your AVB.

If you are a regular smoker, you know that pain in your chest that comes from smoking too many joints. You may feel it the next day, or an hour afterwards. All the resins and smoking particulars and toxins depositing in your lungs. It's uncomfortable, and not fun. Vaping cannabis provide almost a non-combustion experience and can get rid of all those harmful aspects, simply because with vaping wed, you're not burning the herb itself, there be, close to, no tar. As a result, you get, as most vaporents call it, a 'cleaner' high.
I use the treadmill on daily bases, and since I switched to vaping, I've realized that I don't get winded as fast as I used to when I smoked the old fashion way.
A simple experiment I've done, I just smoked a blunt and exhaled into a napkin, it quickly turned into brown from tar residue. I repeated the same experiment but with a vaporizer, I saw almost no discoloring. To be clear, I'm not saying vaping is completely harmless, but it's way less harmful for your lungs than smoking.
Vapor doesn't smell nearly as strong or as far as smoke and dissipates much more quickly. Joints stink. Blunts stink, bongs and pipes can be even worse. Vaping marijuana doesn't completely eliminate smell, but in my experience, although the smell is still identifiable, but it's quite different and less than when you smoke the herb. Also, the smell from vaporizing your weed lingers around less, weed smoke can stick around for days, while weed vapor tends not to smell after about 20 minutes.
If you're still worried about the smell, I recommend vaping near a fan pointing out a window, just in case. If this is not enough, you can use a homemade sploof.
The vaporizers' high does feel a bit different comparing to smoking high. You will be still smoking weed, but it's not quite the same experience a smoking it with slightly different flavor. It's more of a head-high, however, it may feel a bit different at varying temperatures. Check our blog post about the different between vaporizer high and smoking high here.
Once you get the hang of your vaporizer, it's strong, even the worst weed will get you high AF. Sometimes you will miss a bong hit, but there is not problem switching every now and then, but when you come back to your vaporizer, you will understand why vaping weed can be superior. The high also last longer. Way longer.
It is less conspicuous. You might also consider exploring options like the Smoke Buddy, fans running with towel under the door, etc. However, The pricier and the better on-demand quick extraction vaporizers tend to be relatively large, so not as discreet as you want them to be, but they're still portable and hit way better.
You know when you take a bong hit and get the hint of different flavors from different strains and quality weed hiding behind that nasty smoke/tar in the smoke, well after you start vaping for some time, you will see the light.
Vapor is still hot, but not as hot as the smoke. Once you make the switch, you will realize how comfortable and easy vaping comparing to smoking, not only on your lungs, but also on your throat. Also, the elimination of combustion lessens the lungs and throat irritation.
However, if you're using higher tempreture, vape can be harsher at times, it's why some vaporizers come with glass attachments, or some vaporents vape using their vaporizers and a bong to cool the vape down and reduce vapor dryness. Most dry herb vaporizers either include or have available bong adapters, WPA (water pipe adapter), so no need to give up your favorite blong/water pipe.
One more time, YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR. A lot of vaporents love for example The Pax, mainly for it's look and portability, however, for the money I've spent, you will be better off with other vaporizers.
If you can't afford getting a good one now, save up, do your research, and get the best you can, because otherwise you won't use it.
