Smoking Marijuana VS. Vaporizing Marijuana

To burn… or to boil? That is the question. The answer is simple. When smoking marijuana, the temperature is so high that ~90% of the constituents in the combusted smoke are not cannabinoids, and most of those constituents are associated with many potential health risks. But, when vaporizing marijuana, the temperature is low enough that ~90% of the constituents in the vapor are cannabinoids, and this is the desired result especially if using marijuana mostly for its medicinal effects.

Your ideal temperature will vary from other people’s, and might also vary according to what you want from your vape in terms of flavor and effect… but start at a lower temperature and increase until you find your sweet spot. We recommend you choose a vaporizer with an adjustable temperature control… preferably one that shows and allows you to digitally set the exact desired temperature… such as the very highly regarded Volcano DIGIT.
