Understanding the full impact of the best vaping temperature requires just a little background information. The scope of fully appreciating the full significance of using the perfect temperature to vaporize begins with basic vaping education. For those who already know this, indulge me, everyone else may not.
Vaping first and foremost was not exactly modeled after the sick-room versions of vaporizers that your mom or grandma used in years past. Actually vaporizers go back to a much lesser technological time. Thousands of years ago, people would throw rocks into big fire pits, heat them up then proceed to put herbs on the rocks to create vapor.The idea of bringing the concept of those vaporizers forward into what they are known as today, was founded on providing smokers, and the people around them with a safer alternative to traditional methods of ‘smoking’. The best benefit of vaping is that it offers the smoker a way to indulge in that same form of pleasure without so much of the negative aspects. This reward is closely similar to traditional methods they have used to indulge their normal pastime and offers the same perceived gratification. Vaping is simply a method of heating your dry herbs, concentrate or cannabinoids to an ideal boiling-point temperatures. That is the mechanic that produces the similar delivery but with vaping the product is delivered in a mist of vapor, rather than smoke. As everyone knows smoke is full of unhealthy by-products and toxic chemicals. These are the by-products that are direct results of combustion or burning which can also be caused by conduction vaporizers. That is why vaping produces the same enjoyment and effects; minus the toxicity of combustion methods.
Although we do realize and respect that vaporizers are different, products react differently. We also know that everything has its own brand of science that either elevates it or degenerate it. With that being established, unless you have plenty of product to burn and waste, from here forward, we are going to concentrate on the perfect temperature to vaporize
Hopefully this information will help any questioning vaper out there obtain that perfect level of pleasure with the ability to preserve his or her product. This ain’t exact science but it is the closest that can currently be found. We intend for anyone that wants it to be enabled to maintain and enjoy this as an easy healthier alternative.
Temperature for Vaporizing Dry Herb:
For dry herbs, it does seem that the regular consensus is for no one to totally agree therefore the exact numbers do differ somewhat from expert too expert. Don’t sweat a few degrees in plus or minus what is written here. The general range of the more pronounced temperatures do inevitability remain consistent.
Broad studies that have spanned the breadth of scientific research and input from seasoned vapers have been conducted on this subject in answer to many questions. So far, the most preferred vaporizing marijuana temperature have remained between 356°F to 392°F, or very closely in that spectrum. The experts and vapers both contend that the delivery of vapor you receive from as low as 350°F deliver a mellow degree of satisfaction, because this temperature only attains the first level of herbal release.
The overall result a vaper will achieve from a dry herb blend of herbs, is a contented sense of well-being. In essence this is the satisfaction level that is an effectual stage of a very relaxed mood within the realm of retaining the capacity for full-awareness. Most of all, these are the temperature range that will heat the surface and release the active ingredient without burning the herbs which can give off toxins. Vaporizing is intended to be a healthier alternative to escape from the toxic smoke. If you are vaporizing due to a medical condition, it might be best to remember that the lower degrees will keep the vapor thin, in case you have problems with your esophagus.
Not only does this stage of satisfaction give you that aware relaxation, it also preserves the flavor of the product that you are using because there isn’t any opportunity for a combustion burn. Circumventing combustion has elevated this method of vaping as the number one prescribed delivery method from leading medical experts. It doesn’t matter if the vaper is partaking for medicinal or recreational purposes. By avoiding the toxicity that is an inescapable by-product of any form of combustion or burn. This method currently still receives top accolades for the most elevated degree of healthy lifestyle compatibility. So, whatever your objective was that initially inspired you to try vaping, now you know. That is the info as to how and why this slow-burn/low-temperate method is ideally labeled as the healthiest form of vaping your dry goods.
It is also recommended that you can use this same concept to achieve even more intense satisfaction by starting low and increasing your heat in increments. That would mean starting at the prescribed level of 350°F for the normal warm-up. Then by increasing the temperature levels in small increments up to the ideal height of 392°F. This method has proven to release every chemical level from most herbs and all of the benefits that are associated with them, but you are still inhaling mere vapor rather than smoke. In this method the vaper gets the healthy benefits, the reward of ultimate satisfaction, preservation of aromatic taste, and the full extended benefit of making-it-last.
Dry Herb Vaporizers:
The options for dry herb vaporizers are diverse and so are there accompaniment of available products. It would be a futile attempt to aspire giving you an exact temperature on your particular unit. The variety of differences between unit-to-unit is too wide and unregulated for anyone to even consider reaching a close accurate prognosis. Some dry herb vaporizers only come with one pre-set temperature and that can vary from the battery or the coil. Some are able to change temperature but can be a very small amount of pre-set heating temperatures.
There are different battery productions, unit manufactures, different designs, different types of heating methods, and then some come with temperature controls while others do not. Also there are some with interchangeable chamber options that others don’t have and that also is an extreme key variable in the degree of performance you will glean from your unit. Fortunately, the preceding recommendations are some general ideas that pertain to the perfect temperatures that have evolved from a collective of the major brands and more popular designs.
Another valuable recommendation is that ideally you can control the temperature of your vape oven simply by controlling the time length that you are powered on. In essence this means that if you do not have a temperature setting option on your unit then you can control the heat levels by reducing the amount of time that you are actually powered on. This is simply done by powering up, hitting your unit maybe once or twice while it is hot, and then powering it off. The down time only has to be for just a few minutes. That will break the heat cycle of both the degree of your unit’s element and the core temperature of your herbs. One more pull after you power off will deliver residual vapor from the lasting heat within your unit and help extinguish any remaining burn.
Otherwise, remember the golden numbers of low-to-medium on a normal getting-there ratio and a medium-to-high range for that master blast expediency. If you are using the intermittent heating method without a temp control, then you could take that first bowl at full throttle then taper off for the next few. That will automatically put you there after a long day and maintain you for the remainder until bed-time.
Examples of different herbal vapes:
Ago G5 (Portable Herbal Vape Pen) – The Ago G5 is a simple portable pen style vape pen where it uses conduction heating to burn the herbs. Unlike many other styles of vape pens, it does not come with the option to change your temperature setting. Due to the herbs sitting directly on the coil, the herbs will definitely burn, especially when it is being pushed down by the spring. One way to counteract this is to use a honeycomb glass filter which sits on top of the coil and doesn’t let the herbs burn up on the coil. It works almost in a convection process where the heat travels up, causing your herbs to release the active ingredient rather than burn it.
Arizer Extreme Q Vaporizer (Desktop Dry Herb Vaporizer) – One of the most raved about desktop vapes is definitely going to be a temperature controlled unit. It even comes with a remote control to set the temperature and let it pre-heat before you place your herbs in there. It comes with a cyclone bowl which is said to be one of the best herbal bowls. It has a LCD screen that lets you see exactly what the temperature is which can allow you to adjust it however you want.
Arizer Solo Dry Herb Vaporizer (Portable Dry Herb Vape) – As you can see the Arizer line up is pretty good since we are mentioning the second product of theres. They make exceptional vapes and each one has a temperature control setting. Arizer really knows how big of an impact it can make on your vaping experience when you can change the heat of the chamber. Unlike the Extreme Q, the Solo has pre-set controls. They vary from 122°F, 365°F, 374°F, 383°F, 393°F, 401°F and 410°F. It will take about 2 and a half minutes to reach the final temperature at 410°F. As you can see it is mainly in the range where the dry herb is perfectly vaporized at.
Crafty Vaporizer (Portable Dry Herb Vaporizer) – The Crafty has been a long time favorite of ours for a variety of reasons but it is extremely durable and portable. For one, it is made by Storz and Bickel which is one of, if not the most respected brands in the community. Second of all, it is the most technologically advanced vape since you can control it all through it’s own app. However, the Crafty has pre-set temperatures which are 356°F (basic mode) and 383°F (booster mode) which are both controlled through the app. When turning the Crafty on, it will default to 356°F which is the basic mode.
DaVinci Ascent Vaporizer (Portable Herbal Vape) – The DaVinci Ascent Vaporizer is really one of a kind. It is far ahead of its time from when it came out. It has an auto shut off feature and the vaporizing marijuana temperature ranges from 38°F (3°C) to 430°F (221°C). It is pretty discreet at 4.5″ tall and 2″ wide with an inch thick. It comes with an OLED display screen that lets you see all the necessities. It uses a glass lined ceramic heating element.
HipVap Vaporizer (Portable Dry Herbal Vaporizer) – The HipVap vaporizer is a flask shaped vaporizer with a heating chamber on the bottom, that is disguised by a slider. It comes with the ability to change temperatures starting at 150°F to 430°F which is all controlled by the plus and minus buttons on the front. It has an accurate reading and even goes up two degrees at a time. It can take about 2 and a half minutes to reach its final range at 430°F.
Firefly 2 (Handheld Herbal Vape) – The firefly 2 is the successor of the widely known firefly vaporizer. With a unique design the firefly was a hit. Now it is a dual use portable vaporizer that ranges from 340°F (171℃) to 420°F (215℃) in increments of 20°F. It fits perfectly in the palm of your hand and has a magnetic cover which covers your dry herbs in its chamber. The chamber is constructed of borosilicate glass chamber which helps with the quality of the vapor.
Vaped Fob (Portable Herbal Vaporizer) – Possibly the most stealthy and discreet portable dry herb vape is this. The design and look of the vape is identical to a remote key of a car. It starts at 360°F and goes all the way up too 420°F with color identification for each temperature setting it lands on. The exterior does not get very hot unlike some other portable dry herb vapes.
Volcano Classic Vaporizer (Desktop Dry Herb Vape) – Possibly the most popular vaporizer ever and for good reasons, one of them being that it is German engineered. It uses a dial knob to change the temperature and the dial knob number 1 is 266°F and dial knob number 9 is 439°F. Unlike many other vaporizers, the Volcano Classic Vaporizer uses a forced air system which heats the herbs and pushes the air into a balloon bag attachment.
Of course these same rules of temperature will not apply to a wax concentrate or an oil. Those forms of vaping products require a much lower temp to release the bounty that they contain within. Because they are softer composites, they do not require that same influx of temperature or the influx of an increase. These types of products usually do the best with a higher heat of around 400°F-420°F This method will preserve their aroma, taste, prevent over-heating and preserve the stability of their over-all quality. Even though they are soft and thinner, they will not fully melt and release the active ingredients until it reaches that 400°F.
You will also experience variables from other sources as well. No two vaporizers are the same so of course you will find that a very relevant difference. Then there are the differentials of personal preference of course, the product grade, atomizer type, and the duration of the burn. There is no exact way to guarantee that you will receive the same standard of delivery but this is a firm platform to project and judge by.
