Herbal Vaporizer Temperature Guide
Herbal Vaporizer Temperature Guide
So you want to find out about the vaporization of dry herbs?
This guide is designed to help you to get the best experience out of your Vaporizer.
Vaporizers: work by heating your herbs to the boiling point of the different active ingredients.
Once the active ingredient has been evaporated only plant material remains. The Vapor drawn through a vaporizer can contain up to 95% active ingredient, with only minute traces of toxic substances. Because low temperatures don‘t destroy as many of the cannabinoids as combustion, you can get high more times with the same amount of material.

Smoking: smoke contains approximately 12% active ingredients, the rest consists of combustion byproducts. When you combust or ignite plant material the gasses released are a mix of active ingredients but also include also many toxic substances created during the combustion process.
The most important thing to consider before you start is the boiling points of the different active ingredients to get the most out of their medicinal & recreational properties.

Important: Some active ingredients require temperatures above 220 degrees Celsius to evaporate, setting you vaporizer to that temperature can cause combustion which you will want to avoid if vaping.
Note: Smoking and vaping are can produce different effects, some new vaporizer users may even find it is not quite what they had expected but with a bit of experimentation and experience most users will be able to find the temperature combination that produces desired result for them.

While only you can know the high that suits you best, the most effective single temperature to extract the largest number of psychoactive compounds is 186 °C. While the most effective temperature range for cannabinoids is between 176 - 210°C. Lower temperatures within this range tend to produce a cerebral high, while temperatures above 190°C can produce more of a body high.
has a vast array of medicinal applications. It partially counters the effects of THC, e.g. feelings of anxiety and paranoia.
Similar to THC, but less psychoactive. It also has anti-nausea properties.
Usually only in small amounts, its effects can still be felt. It is mainly associated with the sedative effect.
Anti-inflammatory and anti-fungal properties.
Studies show it moderates the psychoactive effects of THC, but more research is required.
May have anti-inflammatory qualities.
Antioxidant and anti-viral flavonoid. Note: Quercetin is released well above the combustion point of cannabis.
Anti-inflammatory and anti-malarial.
Antioxidant, sedative, antibiotic and anti-malarial.
Analgesic, an antibiotic and anti-inflammatory.
Increases cerebral blood flow and is a stimulant, anti-viral, anti-inflammatory and antibiotic.
anti-mutagenic and antidepressant.
Known as an antibiotic agent.
Is known for its antidepressant, sedative properties
Known as an antibiotic and AChE inhibitor.
Has antibiotic properties.
Is a terpenoid and also a sedative, antibiotic, antioxidant and AChE inhibitor.
A sedative with potentially memory boosting properties.
Vapor will still usually contain trace amounts of toxins. But compared with the toxins found in smoke, there is a massive reduction when using a vaporizer.
This is not thought to be a very serious toxin, and only appears in small amounts. It can cause light-headedness, nausea, sleepiness and a loss of appetite. Its boiling point is 110°C., so there is no avoiding it.
This toxin is possibly a carcinogen and causes light-headedness, nausea, loss of appetite and pale skin. Its boiling point is 218 °C.
Released in ‘’Smoke’’. These are the carcinogenic chemicals that can cause lung and respiratory problems.
Very dry or very moist Herbs?
If Your herbs are very high in moisture it is recommended to do what is known as a flavonoid run. Setting your vaporizer at a lower temperature (around 135 – 149 °C.), it is possible to release a reasonable amount of flavonoid vapor and help to dry out your herbs. After doing this, your cannabis will normally be dry enough to vaporize as per normal settings.
