Learn about the Art of Vaporizing Cannabinoids and the temperatures they vaporize at:

Below is a list of some of the major cannabinoids in cannabis and the temperatures they vaporize at.  We also added some of the benefits each compound can help with.  Cannabis is not a medical drug, but it does enhance the lives of many people.  Whether used for medical or recreationally, cannabis has a plethora of great uses.

We feel vaporizing cannabis is a pure art form.  Its much like wine tasting or coffee roasting combined.  Like wine, each strain has a unique profile of cannabinoids and terpenes.  Each strain is comprised of many of the same cannabinoids, just at different amounts.  This is why a Sativa and an Indica make you feel different.  They contain much the same but in varying amounts of each molecule.  As you fall in love with vaporizing you will start to taste how each strain tastes different as you vape it further in the roasting process.  The first few inhales of a vape will deliver all the terpene flavors as they vaporize at lower temperatures and you have to get the herb from room temperature to vaping temperature.  Naturally, the terps come off first.  This is why we suggest less herb in a wand than more.  This will allow you to not just pull the first few hits but will allow you to experience the full spectrum of the plant as nature intended it.  As you go down the roasting path you will start to unlock other cannabinoids that need higher temperatures.  This is why we suggest running whatever vaporizer you have to the highest setting to unlock the full spectrum of the cannabis plant.  Some cannabinoids vape at around 430 while cannabis combusts at 450.  Running at a higher temperature will allow you to get those valuable cannabinoids your body wants.  Running at a higher temperature, however, will give you a nuttier roasted flavor that you will have to acquire.  Once you acquire the roasted flavor you will start to notice all the roasted cannabis flavors being unlocked with your vape and you will experience the value of full spectrum vaporization.








Cannabinols and cannabinoids



  • Δ-8-THC – Delta-8-tetrahydrocannabinol
    • Resembles Δ-9-THC, Less psychoactive, More stable Antiemetic
  • Δ8-THCA – Delta-8-tetrahydrocannabinolic acid -Vaporizing Temperature of 350 Degrees   –   Neat Info
    • Less psychoactive.  More stable,  Antiemetic


Miscellaneous cannabinoids


Terpenoid essential oils

The terpenes are what gives the cannabis plant its unique aroma and flavor.  As each strain is constructed of varying amounts of terpenes and cannabinoids each strain ends up having its own flavor and taste profile.
