Who are we?
We, the people behind Vapotheca, believe in herbal medicine as an alternative to pharmaceuticals. It is the natural way of healing, minimizing the stress for your body, mind and soul.
As time goes, more and more medicinal properties of herbs are rediscovered and proved by scientific experiments. As we know now, the lungs are the most efficient organ to deliver the medicine into our blood, outperforming the stomach in the speed of delivery as well as efficiency. That is due to the fact that the surface area of our lungs is equal to the size of a tennis court.
The only drawback of inhaling vs. ingesting is smoke. Your lungs and your body hates smoke. It is harmful. But then vaporizers where invented, a way to heat the herb just below combustion temperature. Just enough to get all the goodness free-flowing into your system, but not enough to actually start the cancerous burning process. The tar stays in the substance, instead of setting in the lungs.
Now you can vape instead of smoke without the physical harm and psychological worry. In advanced countries such as Germany doctors in pharmacies are even recommending people to vape weed occasionally to feel good.
