Cannabis Vaporizer Temperature

Cannabis vaporizers all vaporize weed at around the same levels. The temperature at which you vaporize your weed has a major bearing on whether your vaporizing experience turns out to be good, bad or indifferent. This is no time for guesswork, although it is certainly possible to arrive at the correct temperature for you by a process of trial and error. However, the temperature you feel to be the best may not be the most efficient or even the healthiest.

What might seem like the magical art of arriving at the correct vaporizer temperature is, in fact, pure science.
Let’s break the issue down: the reason for using a vaporizer is to reduce the health hazards that come with smoking. These hazards are produced by the combustion process – that is, the burning of your weed, which happens at 446°F. Once burning takes place, chemicals such as benzene, toluene and naphthalene are released, all of which are extremely injurious to health. It makes sense then that the last thing you want to do is set the temperature on your vaporizer so high that the cannabis actually burns. Recent scientific studies have shown that these toxins are released before the burning process starts, at a temperature of 392°F. So, you need to keep your vaporizer below the 390°F mark.
What about the other end of the temperature scale, though; what temperature does your vaporizer need to reach in order for the THC to be released?
Well, marijuana plants begin to give off their active constituents at a temperature of 347°F, although trace levels of THC have been found at temperatures as low as 284°F. We would suggest a vaporizing temperature of around 365°F as being both effective and safe.
Don’t be led by the mistaken idea that the thicker the vapor the better the high, by the way; the thickness of the vapor has no bearing whatsoever on how high you are likely to feel and the thinner vapor you get at lower temperatures contains just as much active THC as the thick stuff.
So, there you have it. A quick, “down and dirty” guide to figuring out the right temperature on your vaporizer. Hope you found it useful… now stop reading and go try it for yourself.
