    what Temp do you vape at and why?

    tokenjoker78 New Member

    depends what brand of vape ur using?

    bdonson Well-Known Member

    i have an extreme with digital thermostat. why does the brand of vape matter? I am interested in the relationship between temperature and volatizing thc from marijuana plant material. I can envision for for example moisture content being an issue briefly anyway but heat is heat no matter what vape we use. the amount of heat is what I'm asking about. cheers bob

    I set volcanos to 7 which i think is 395 F Which is a little above the vaporizing temp of pot and a bit below the vaporizing temp of a specific bad thing in the pot. I also set it to 395 so that as the fan blows and the air gets cooler, it should still be cool enough to vape pot before the heating element reheats (although the volcano autmoatically regulates the tempt by turning the heat on and off)

    thanks, I like my Extreme but the high is always more subtle without the rush that I get from a bong hit and I wanted more info about temps. I had one person tell me in a shop that the temp he used depended on how dry the weed was, Didn't make much sense to me because a ceramic heater is going to very rapidly remove moisture anyway.

    I have the arizer extreme q vaporizer. I use 200-215c for the whip and 180-230c for the balloon.

    When you vape at the correct temp (I think 395F and 192C are the temps you want) you get only the THC. When you ignite it (ie bong rip) you will get a much quicker immediate high due to the inhalation of all of those toxins and shit. After a few minutes I find the end result is the same, a nice mellow buzz. Believe in the vaporizer and it will treat you right.

    thanks I'll give it another go. Unfortunate they don't include some recomendations in the box with it.

    Ok...I kinda researched it a little before I made the plunge and this is what I found. I woulda posted the link if I could remember where I copied and pasted it from. Now I read ppl saying that 392 is more like the number to completely release it all. Wow....392 produces some pretty thick vapor, almost smoke (well it prolly is) and my ol lady cant take it that high. here ya go!

    The study linked below is generally accepted as the best temp guide. 365 F is listed as the temp for a complete release of THC, without adding toxins that kick in at higher temps (around 400 F). There are a few sedative, analgesic type compounds that vaporize as high as 435, so you have to weigh the want/need for those against the cleaner vapor you get below 400.

    Thank you so much. excellent info for vapers. Exactly the type of info i was looking for. Can you tell me what your favorite temp is and if there are any variables, ie why you may vape at a different temp due to changing cirumstances like different bud, more or less moisture, just to name a couple.

    i like all the temps

    i progressively go from 365 to 392

    because each cannabinoid vaporizes at a different temperature, you get a better spectrum of the high and get more from your bud..

    shouldn't be any variables... your vaporizing the trichomes and resin, not the bud.. and resin/trichomes is a constant factor, always there on the female flower

    my hot box makes me cough after a couple of hits i run it at 185c should i ve turning it up or down?

    jdizzle22 Well-Known Member

    well obviously don't turn it up if its making you cough, turn it down or get a vaporizer that blows hot air through through the herb
