One of the most cleanest and fun ways to enjoy cannabis is to vaporize it. Using a weed vaporizer also gives you unprecented control over your experience, allowing for a pure a pleasurable experience.
Throughout the UK, Vaporizers are becoming more and more popular.
Dry Herb vaporizers work by heating up cannabis to the point where the cannabinoids and terpenes evaporate, leaving only the used plant matter behind.
When you light herbs, the smoke is a mix of just 10% cannabinoids. 90% of the smoke contains toxic combustion by-products such as carbon-monoxide, tar and benzene.
In contrast, the clouds from a dry herb vaporizer contain upwards of 95% cannabinoids - more of the good stuff!
What's the perfect temperature?
OK, so that heading is misleading. there is in fact no perfect temperature. There is a range of temperatures that release different cannabinoids and terpenes? .
Generally temperatures below 190°C produce a head high, vaping above that induces a body high. After around 200°C cannabis begins to combust.
