Edibles vs. Vape Pens

The difference between eating edibles and puffing away at vape pens is obvious: one is consumed by ingesting marijuana-laced snacks and food, while vape pens are like a portable, vapor-based joint that is better for your lung health than traditional smoking.

So what are the differences between edibles and vaping? When you take an edible, your liver is metabolizing the THC, giving you a much longer-lasting and more intense high, although they take a while to kick in.

On the other hand, when you use vape pens, the THC reaches your endocannabinoid system by going into your bloodstream through your lungs. This makes the effects come on much faster, but it’s also a shorter high.

Here’s another quick rundown of some points of interest.


There ain’t no question about it: edibles obviously pack a lot more flavor than vaping cannabis. 

However, it all depends on the kind of flavor you’re looking for: if you like to taste the actual flavor of your favorite cannabis strains, vaping can be a better option. 

Plus, because you’re not burning your herb like traditional smoking, many vapes actually conserve more of the natural flavonoids and terpenes.

On the other hand, edibles are available in lots of flavors, depending on the product. From savory chips to sweet and sour gummies, edibles are made for food-loving cannabis consumers. 

If you don’t mind not tasting your strain, your imagination is the only limit when it comes to cannabis edible flavors. 


The cost difference between edibles and vapes isn’t a far stretch, but it’s worth looking into.

Typically, vapes tend to be a little more expensive than edibles, but it also depends on which products you pick and the number of milligrams they have.

Depending on how often you vape or take edibles, the cost-efficiency varies.

If you’re an all-day, every-day type of consumer, a vape might last you longer. While it’s not as cost-efficient to be popping edibles all day, taking a couple of hits every few hours can last you session after session.

However, if you’re an occasional or one-a-day consumer, edibles are a great option. Depending on the dosage, you’ll only need one or two edibles to give you an hours-long high which can last you up to a couple of weeks.


When you’re looking at the differences between vape pens and edibles, convenience is another big factor. 

Storing and carrying around edibles doesn’t win in this category, but it all comes down to personal preference. Additionally, if you’re into making your own edibles, the whole process can take up to several hours.

On the other hand, vape pens are for the on-the-go cannabis enthusiast. Vape pens take the cake because of their high portability, availability, and ease of use. 

The only thing you might want to keep in mind is to ensure it’s always charged and giving you big, high-quality clouds of vapor.


If you’re looking to achieve the same consistent effects and results at every consumption, vape pens are the go-to. You have more control over how much you’re ingesting and can take another hit if you’re not satisfied with the potency of the high.

Edibles are harder to get just right. While you can learn to find your perfect dosage, the fact that they take much longer to hit might have you feeling disappointed if you aren’t at the level of highness you want to be after your first edible.

Edibles are also a little more unpredictable: you never know what you’re going to feel until you start feeling it. Vapes will almost immediately let you know what you’re getting into, as the effects set in much faster.


Every person experiences cannabis in different ways. However, you can gauge possible effects depending on the strain and whether it’s an indica, sativa, or hybrid.

It’s also important to note that effects vary on the type of cannabinoid that you’re consuming: Delta 8 THC will produce a more clear-headed and mild high, delta 9 THC has much more potent effects, and HHC is said to land somewhere in the middle of the two. 

No matter the cannabinoid, there’ll usually be indica, sativa, and hybrid options to choose from.

Indica is known to produce more relaxing strains. Indica strains can aid in fighting off insomnia and anxiety, leaving you feeling relaxed, euphoric, happy, and sleepy. They’re known to give you more of a “body high.”

On the other hand, sativa is for the go-getters and productive stoners. They produce more of a “head high,” which can give you a boost and provide more uplifting and energizing effects. You might find yourself hyper-focusing on the task at hand or boosting your creativity. 

Hybrids are the best of both worlds, and it all depends on the strain. While some strains are well-balanced between indica and sativa, others can be either indica- or sativa-dominant. At the end of the day, your best bet is to look into the specific effects of each strain to help you pick the right one for you.

When it comes to the effects of edibles vs. vape pens with the same strain, there’s only one clear difference: edibles produce a much more intense and longer-lasting high. 

Taking edibles will have you waiting up to two hours for the effects to set in, but when they do, they sure pack a punch and last for hours on end. On the other hand, vape pens will have you feeling high almost instantly, but the effects will be less potent and last up to a few hours.


Pros & Cons of Taking Edibles

Taking edibles has its pros and cons, as any form of consuming cannabis has. Here are some of them:

  • Edibles are limited to your imagination: from chocolate bars and chips to gummies and beverages, you have many options to choose from
  • Edibles can help bring on the “munchies,” which is great if you struggle with appetite.
  • Edibles may also ease some pesky symptoms that many people go through: pain, nausea, insomnia, and anxiety, to name just a few.
  • Edibles can be healthier than smoking since you’re not putting your lungs at risk.
  • This is both a pro and a con, depending on what you’re looking for: the high achieved by eating edibles can last much longer.
  • Edibles produce a much more intoxicating and intense high than other forms of consuming cannabis.

Vape Pens vs. Edibles: Reddit’s Thoughts

When it comes to public opinion, where else to look other than Reddit?

The website has multiple subreddits about cannabis, including ones highlighting the differences between vaping and eating weed. 

The general consensus comes down to personal preference: from newbies to seasoned stoners, everyone has different tastes, needs, and expectations.

At the end of the day, every stoner goes through a “hit and miss” period until they eventually find what they prefer.

While some users like the intensity and longevity of edibles, others prefer a milder, more controllable high that can be achieved through vape pens.
