Forever Young: Studies Found Vaping Cannabis Is Really Good For Your Skin

Congrats, vapers. You’ll look young and beautiful forever! You probably know that cannabis is good for the mind, good for the sexual life and highly recommended for various medical treatment. What you may don’t know is that, if you are a stoner, not only do you look cool, you can also give yourself a pat on the back for doing some good for your skin.

It has long been known that the anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the primary psychoactive component in cannabis, would be useful in the maintenance of healthy skin, were it not for the fact smoking in all its forms is very much the opposite. Smoking THC would be a bit like eating a battered and fried avocado, then claiming the health benefits of the raw vegetable.

Instead, vaporisers could be the answer. Smokeless, meaning the collagen-sapping combustion process is skipped (as the essential oils in whatever herb it is you’re choosing to smoke are boiled instead), those beneficial properties of THC can be inhaled, minus the bad ones.

Here’s how vaping works: The device heats up your chosen substance, creating a vapor out of the essential oils, which is then inhaled, leaving the user with the primary feel-good components minus the collagen-inhibiting hydrocarbons (and other assorted grossness) from smoke. When you vape marijuana, you’re inhaling THC and cannabinoids, which can potentially fight off free radicals.

Why bother with a time-consuming American Psycho-style skincare routine when you can just get blazed instead?
