Does Vaping Weed Make You Less Likely To Be Caught
While several states have made cannabis legal recreationally and several more have
made medical marijuana legal, there may still be plenty of reasons you don’t want to get
caught using it. Maybe your parents don’t approve. Maybe your lease has a strict no-
smoking policy. Maybe your partner or roommates don’t like the smell. If you’re driving,
you might get pulled over and you don’t want the cops to detect the odor of cannabis.
Recreational users have begun making the switch to vaporizing their cannabis, and for
one major reason. Vaping makes it harder to smell that you’re using cannabis, and
therefore, makes you less likely to get caught. But is this reality or an urban legend like
drinking pickle juice will help you pass a drug test? Read on to find out the truth about
whether vaping will make it harder for you to get caught.
So what are my chances of being caught?
There are a lot of reasons that the switch could make it easier to slide by, particularly in
public while amongst other people vaping e-juices that come in an array of fragrant
flavors. The barely-there odor of vapor from cannabis does tend to dissipate quickly and
gets lost among the jumble of e-juice scents.
Keep in mind that if your ultimate goal is blending in, dry herb vaporizers might not be
friendly in this regard. This is because even though vaporizing dried cannabis flower is
less telltale than smoking it, there is still some lingering odor that will out you. Your best
bet is to scope some concentrate oils, which have much less odor than the dried herbs.
In medical and recreational states, oil cartridges have become mainstays. They even
have become coming out in flavors akin to their e-cig cousins, meaning that you can get
the flavor of berries and other flavorings, which come with the same smell.
Sales of portable vaporizers like the DaVinci, Pax models, and other dry herb and
concentrate vaporizers are rising. These devices can range in cost from around $20 to
$30 all the way up into the hundreds of dollars. They are easily portable and the
concentrate varieties allow medical marijuana patients to treat their conditions on-the-
Concentrate vaporizers are almost indistinguishable from their e-cig counterparts and
you can even usually screw them into most box mods, provided you lower the wattage
or the voltage. However, dry herb vaporizers look different from most box mods and
from e-cigarettes, meaning that someone who knows what they’re looking for might be
able to spot the difference.
Even desktop dry herb vaporizers like the popular Volcano Vaporizer by Storz and
Bickel leave little tell-tale aroma. This can make it easier for medical patients who may
live in apartments where smoking is not allowed to be able to medicate themselves
without getting caught.
There’s another bonus to vaporization. Because you are only inhaling better, studies
indicate that it is healthier than inhaling the carbonized smoke produced by traditional
smoking methods. It may also help to save you money because more of those
cannabinoids that you want are released with less product. Vaporization also helps to
release those delicious aromatic terpenes that are burned up by smoking.
Long story short, the answer to the question of whether or not vaping makes you less
likely to get caught is yes, particularly if you are smoking in public. However, it also
works in the privacy of your own home or among a small group of friends.
