While I have never smoked cigarettes, I have been around smokers my entire life. My grandpa smoked, my Bonus Dad smokes, and I live in the South were it seems everyone smokes. While the people that surround me do what they always have done, smoke–the habit of smoking has changed quite drastically through my life. I’ve gone from a high school that had a “smoking area” to seeing businesses and buildings ban smoking from their premises. “Smoking or non-smoking?” isn’t an option for a table, an airplane flight or almost anything anymore. The vending machines that sold cigarettes are extinct.
Trending right now in the world of smokers are vaporizers and e-pens. These are choices for those who still want to experience the satisfaction of smoking, but are seeking an alternative to traditional cigarettes. The vaporizer pen, such as those at Vapin Plus, is a popular choice for its size and ease of use.
A dry herb vape pen allows the user to add their choice of dry blends. It works like an electronic cigarette. The name originates from the fact that a vaporizer pen resembles a fountain pen.
Where I work, I have gone from watching some of my co-workers transition from cigarettes to vapor pens. Before, they would have to “step outside” to smoke. The smell would linger and be mentioned by others. One fellow exclusively uses his vapor pen, sharing the new flavors (like waffles and syrup or chocolate) he’s using in his vapor pen, and often demonstrates while inside the office how there is no smell of smoke, yet he has the same satisfaction he got from blowing the smoke of his cigarettes. Another guy can smoke the vapor pen in the house; he has his wife’s permission!
Once you purchase the vapor pen, the only cost is what the user chooses to vape in its chamber. It’s significantly cheaper, especially for those who smoke multiple packs of cigarettes a day.
It seems there is a wider social acceptance of vaporizer pens than cigarettes. Vaporizer pens are a cleaner smoke than that of traditional cigarettes. The annual cost savings of vape pens compared to traditional cigarettes is far less.
