Best Temperature For Vaping Weed

Best Temperature For Vaping Weed

What temperature do I use to vape weed?

This is a very common question in the vaping community.  The only clear answer is; it depends.  A lot of the factors boil down to the type of vaporizer being used and user preference around vapor clouds and taste. 

 

First, lets start with some general information.  The optimum temperature range for most vaporizers is somewhere within 170 to 200 degrees Celsius or 340 to 390 Fahrenheit.  Most vaporizers will provide you with some guidance for minimum and maximum temperatures.  For instance the Pax 3 offers four modes that range from 360 degrees Fahrenheit to 420 degrees Fahrenheit.  These modes can be customized with an app, but a lot of other vaporizers (like the G Pen Elite and Arizer Solo 2) allow you to set the degrees manually on the device.

 

These recommendations don't tell the whole story though.  Cannabis is a complex plant that contains multiple components that are beneficial to the user.  The two we hear about most are CBD and THC, but the benefits don't stop there.  The fact of the matter is that every component gets released at different temperatures.  So, depending on the effect you are looking for you should set your vaporizer accordingly.

 

At the bottom of this article, we will share the different components of cannabis and which temperatures are best to reach them.

Why is the temperature so important?

Setting the temperature is key to a good vaping session.  This is like Goldilocks and the three bears.  If you set it "too cold", you may miss out on some key benefits of the weed.  If you set it "too hot", then you might be burning off the properties you are looking to experience.

Best Vaporizers for Temperature Control

Fortunately there are a lot of different options to choose from when it comes to temperature control.  However, we are talking about "precise" temperature control.  Vaporizers use different measuring sticks when it comes to determining the temperature your weed is vaped.  Most vaporizers determine the heat of the combustion element and not the temperature of the actual weed.  Our recommendation is to select a product that meets at least 2 of these qualities:

  • Convection heating;

  • Digital temperature control;

  • Balloon-style inhalation or

  • In the case of whip-style or direct-draw inhalation: a heating algorithm which keeps the temperature in your bowl/herb chamber consistent when drawing vapor

So, which ones are the best for you?  Luckily we have hand selected 2 of the best vapes for you.
