There’s an assumption that moms--and women in general--don’t vape. That assumption is incorrect. In reality, women are 1.66 times more likely to try vaping than men. And just to give you an idea of what might be in their vaporizers, women make up the majority of new customers in the California and Colorado legalized herb markets. Just check out Moms for Marijuana International, whose mission it is to end cannabis prohibition, to get an idea of the role women are playing in reform.
For good measure, let’s look at 5 celebrity moms who choose vaping over smoking.
The star of Knocked Up loves vaping. According to Heigl, a mother of three, she was able to quit smoking using an ecigarette vaporizer after trying a litany of other cessation methods. (Not our claim Mr. FDA agent). Of all the women who vape, Heigl is one of the biggest proponents of using a vaporizer instead of smoking. You can actually watch Heigl vaping with David Letterman on the Late Show. “I’m gonna get arrested by the PC police!” She told Letterman while she puffed away on live television. Sure enough, she was.
No celebrity is as publicly supportive of vaping as Whoopi Goldberg. Thanks to a vape pen gifted to her by her daughter, the legendary comedian and actress claims to get immense relief from her glaucoma. And she’s made a point to share her experience with others.
“The vape pen has changed my life,” she wrote of her vaporizer, dubbed “sippy”, in a column for The Cannabist. “These glaucoma-induced headaches come on like freight trains – like, BOOM, my head starts hurting, my eyes start bugging, my whole body starts to tense up. But then I find her, and it relaxes everything and calms everything. It helps my head stop hurting, and with glaucoma your eyes ache, and she takes the ache out. It’s wonderful.”
Goldberg first tried vaping after her daughter introduced her to a desktop unit because joints were too harsh for the 61-year old actress. Whoopi had trouble using the desktop vaporizer when her daughter wasn’t around, so she ended up going with a simpler-to-use vape pen.
Audrina Patridge took a break from television after starring in The Hills to focus on raising her baby daughter, Kira. She’s also picked up vaping. Here we see her enjoying eliquid from a vape pen with a tank.
Kate Moss has been snapped with cigarette in hand many a time. But she’s since become one of many New York celebrities who vape instead. Incidentally, her ex-boyfriend from way back, Johnny Depp, is a regular vaporist.
Sienna Miller doesn’t hide her love for vaping. The 35-year old actress and mother made a splash by vaping at the Golden Globes. And she vaped on the set of 2012’s Just Like A Woman.
So it's true. Women love vaping, too. If you’re looking for a gift for your mother, and think she’d like to try vaping, check out our vaporizers page.
