One of the greatest things about vaporizing cannabis, is your ability to customize your high, or choose how lifted you feel. With other methods such as smoking or eating cannabis, you don’t have the kind of flexibility that you do with vaporizing, and the terpenes! The terpenes are best experienced through vaporizing.
Customizing based on activity:
When you need to be alert and ready to jump into action, you have to make sure you don’t feel any intoxication, this is when microdosing can really help ease your stress without it going to your head.
THC vaporizes at 315f, so for microdosing, you would choose a temperature range between 315f to 340f. However if you don’t want any THC go for a temperature less than 315f and see how that feels.
CBD doesn’t vaporize until 356f, so if you’re using a high CBD strain, you’ll want to start at that temperature and go up as needed.
Working out, focused work and sex
For activities like cleaning the house, where you might want some THC but not too much, you’ll want to stay in the range of 350f to 365f, depending on how strong your strain is, and your tolerance. Be mindful of how many draws you take, pausing between each one to make sure it’s not too much. THC can be great for focused work and sexual activity but too much can make you drowsy or anxious.
If you need to sleep, or you want to feel that lovely couch lock feeling, then you you’ll want a higher temperature of 370+. Linalool, the terpene that’s also found in lavender, vaporizes at 388f that terpene can make you sleepy so a good temperature for insomnia is 390+
Pain & Upset stomach
If you have pain or upset stomach like nausea or indigestion, you’ll want to use higher temperatures. Higher temps you feel in the body more, especially if it’s an indica. Higher temperatures are 375f+ however try going over 400f even, just go slow, pausing after each inhale to make sure you don’t overdo it.
The best thing to do is play around with the temperatures with each strain so you get a feel. Just one draw is enough to get an idea of what temperature is best.
