Vape pipes were touted as a plausible upgrade from e-cigarettes and dry herb vaporizers this year. Aside from e-cigs and vaporizers, vape pipes have made a noteworthy contribution in radically changing the way people used consumed nicotine and marijuana.
Sporting an old-fashioned appearance, vape pipe mods feature a glass/stainless steel e-liquid tank. Pipe vape mods use e-liquid tanks to offer a similar sub-ohm vaping experience that vapers get from other devices such as vape pens and box mods.
The deliver this without dumping the look of an old wooden pipe but evolving into wooden vape pipes. Moreover, the pipe mods retain the old-school touches including faux-wood bowls, an all-mahogany finish, and tapered mouthpieces.
While vape pipes operate almost like e-cigarettes, there are certain advantages and disadvantages to using vape pipes over a traditional tobacco or marijuana pipe. Let’s check them out.
Advantages of E-Pipes
A tobacco-less alternative
E-pipes do not use nicotine e-juices. They neither burn any material nor do they have tobacco so there is no smoke produced while using it. The e-liquid used in vape pipe contains vegetable glycerin, propylene glycol, and a slew of other flavorings.
Easy to manage
Whether you use tobacco or cannabis pipe, smoking pipes tend to get dirty. Most vape pipes, on the other hand, do not need that kind of maintenance. You might occasionally have to clean out the e-liquid tank or dispose of a coil, making it almost a maintenance-free option.
Smoking creates ash, and ash is recurrent with tobacco or weed pipes. You are required to clean the bowl regularly, which leads to a lot of mess. On top of that, the combustion pipe produces a smell that is as bad as burning a cigarette.
Disadvantages of E-Pipes
While a tobacco or weed pipe may not be a safe alternative, they are relatively economical as compared to the price tags attached to pipe vape mods. Vape pipe mods consist of multiple parts including mouthpieces, and coils that are likely to break easily, requiring you to replace them. This increases your overall cost.
Lack of user-friendliness
Smokers usually place tobacco or marijuana in the bowl, light it and inhale. E-pipes, on the other hand, require more effort. Vapers have to fill their tanks, recharge batteries, replace old coils, and clean when needed.
Not a tool to quit smoking
While vaping can be touted as an alternative to smoking traditional cigarettes, the same cannot be said about e-pipes or any vaping device. There aren’t enough shreds of evidence showing that people can quit smoking by resorting to vaping. Those planning to kick the conventional butt should first consult a medical professional or go for an FDA-approved tobacco cessation tool.
