Vaporizer Temperatures for Cannabis – The Ultimate Guide
There are a myriad of ways to get high – but one of the most clean and fun ways is to vaporize cannabis. While smoking a good old joint is a timeless ritual, vaporising herb offers an unprecedented level control over the high. Once the art of vaporizing is mastered, it allows for a pure and pleasurable experience.
Vaporizers work by heating up marijuana to the point were certain cannabinoids “boil” and literally evaporate, leaving behind just fibrous plant matter. When you light a joint, the smoke is a mix of cannabinoids and a number of somewhat toxic combustion by-products, such as PAHs. In fact, analysis has shown that joint smoke only contains just over 10% cannabinoids, the rest consists of combustion products. In contrast, the clouds that come out of a vaporizer contain up to 95% cannabinoids, with only small traces of PAHs. In addition, because low temperatures don‘t destroy any cannabinoids through heat, the mileage you get out of your buds is much higher with a vaporizer.
