  • The Solution for Smokers Suffering with Asthma

    For as many years as smoking has been around, it seems as if we’ve conjured up just as many “smoking alternatives.” From old school snuff and plug tobacco, to the more scientific nicotine gums and patches, for generations we’ve been trying to move away from smoking for one reason or another. In fact, one company was even putting R&D dollars into nicotine-infused bottled beverages; which is easily the strangest potential smoking alternative we’ve ever heard of.

    Aside from ash tray water, the trouble is each of those alternative-to-smoking methods has their drawbacks – problems in disposing of waste, inconsistent levels of key compounds, the awful taste of peach-flavored tobacco, as well as certain detrimental health effects. So, what’s the solution for anyone looking reap the benefits of certain dried plants and herbs while keeping any less-than-desirable side-effects to a minimum? You may have guessed this was coming… but (spoiler alert) the answer is VAPORIZING.

    Smokers suffering with asthma have been stuck between the rock of needing the health benefits of plant material and the hard place of not being able to breathe during and after smoking. Because of this, traditional combustion (smoking) is both a blessing and a curse. While the good stuff inside certain plants and herbs can actually help to alleviate certain symptoms of respiratory discomfort, the negative effects of traditional smoking can simultaneously wreak havoc on the respiratory tract – especially so for anyone with existing respiratory conditions.

    Essentially, for asthma sufferers, any relief provided by smoking plant or herb material is almost nullified by the drawbacks that come with smoking. It’s hard to justify a medicine that makes you sicker, or a solution that alleviates one symptom only to make another one worse.

    Because it removes the actual smoke, the unnecessary chemicals, and the superheated air that go along with combustion, vaping is an ideal solution for anyone suffering from asthma. In fact, our SideKick portable vaporizer features a ceramic heating chamber that can hold up to a ¼ gram of dried plants or herbs. Not only does this mean you get to reap all the benefits of sweet organic goodness, it also means you never have to be without relief – at home or on the go.

    Vaporizing is also a great solution for anyone with COPD or weak lungs. Our Super Surfer vaporizer features a fan-driven forced air system with variable speed control for use with a vapor bag valve system. That’s an engineering way to say that the Super Surfer will handle the work of pushing vapor into a bag that can then be used to “push” vapor into the lungs, which means even those with low inspiratory capability can still enjoy the positive effects of their favorite dried plants and herbs.

    While there are still a ton of different methods for getting all the good stuff in, there’s really no solution like vaporizing for keeping all the bad stuff out. Here at 7th Floor Vapes, we’re very proud of the products we manufacture and of the solutions those products provide to people in every walk of life.

  • Why You Should Stop Smoking (and Start Vaping)

    In the timeline of human achievement, vaporizing technology is relatively new. Aromatherapy as whole, however, is definitely not. For centuries upon centuries, we’ve been heating herbs and plants and inhaling their inner goodness. But because of a lack of portable vaporizing technology through the millennia, we’ve also been stuffing those plants and herbs into little bits of paper, setting them on fire, and inhaling them THAT way.

    That’s right. We’re about to have “The Smoking Talk.” Because just like your Aunt Glenda, we care about your health. (But we don’t bake cookies nearly as well as she does.)

     

    Why Smoking Is Bad

    Besides a few definite, hopefully obvious, no-nos (castor plants, belladonna, water hemlock, and strychnine, to name a few), it could be argued that the overall medicinal effects of just about any dried herb are overwhelmingly positive. From tobacco, to marijuana, to a variety of other plants and herbs, each of these little bits of green goodness can have a positive effect upon your body and health. But seriously...don’t ever ingest castor plants, belladonna, water hemlock, or strychnine.

    In the case of smoking, the material being smoked isn’t the issue so much as the delivery method is. Like the great big cartoon bear taught us, fire gives rise to smoke. And smoke is the archenemy of your respiratory system. Combusting dried herbs not only creates superheated air and chemicals, it also ruins most of the compounds in those herbs that produce the positive effects we mentioned.

    “So you’re saying smoking is bad because it produces smoke?” Well, yes. Besides the fact that tobacco smoking still kills more than six million people around the world each year, smoke inhalation unrelated to tobacco smoking accounts for more than 10,000 deaths each year in the US alone. In fact, the best case scenario for inhaling superheated air, chemicals, gases, and particles is irritation and thermal damage to your insides. The bottom line? Smoke and your lungs are a bad match.

     

    Why Vaporizing is Good

    The American Heart Association jumped on the vaporizing train way back in 2014 in a published study that found vaporizing caused no inflammatory response, no decrease in forced expiratory volume, and promoted healthier overall pulmonary function compared to smoking. Which is a fancy way of saying vaporizing is way better for your lungs and for your immune system.

    Because there’s no such thing as a basil cigarette or a lavender cigar, vaporizing also opens the door for inhaling plants and herbs beyond the mass-produced and mass-marketed materials produced by tobacco companies. With a portable vaporizer like the SideKick by 7th Floor Vapes, you can pack up to ¼ gram of your favorite dried herbs or plants into the chamber and enjoy all their benefits on the go.

    It’s the 21st Century. And technological developments have provided a new solution to the problem that created the necessity for smoking in the first place. Jump on the Vaporizer Train. You’ll be glad you did!
