Vaping Temperature Guide

How Hot is Too Hot?

When you start vaping, one of the more interesting and controversial topics that comes up is: "What temperature should I vape at?". There is no one answer and the answer depends on what your goals are. The answer may differ depending on what you are vaping. Dried herb of a particuualr strain may be best vaped at a certain temperature while another strain may have a different temperature. In the end there is no best temperature. The reason for this lies in the fact that all the various components of cannabis have different boiling points. When you smoke or "burn" a joint, you are getting all of the cannabinoids as well as some of the toxins created by combustion of both the cannabis and the paper. One of the major reasons people prefer vaping is to avoid these toxins as well as the extra heat from the hot smoke. Dry weed can begin to combust at around 200 °C. The maximum heat weed can take before burning is approximately 230 °C., depending on it's moisture content.

Temperature ranges

Higher temperatures (above 200°C) provide a higher ratio of the type of cannabinoids that have an effect on your body (CBD, CBN, CBC); Whilelower temperatures provide a higher ratio of the type of cannabinoids that have an effect on your mind and consciousness (THC).
