    Hey guys, here is the small list that I grabbed from a friend that shows you each substance inside the cannabis.

    Chemical name: Delta-9-Tetrahydrocannabinol AKA THC
    Boiling point: 157 * C
    Features: causes euphoria, analgesic, anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, anti-vomiting

    Chemical Name: Cannabidiol
    Also known as: CBD
    Boiling point: 160-180 * C
    Features: anti-anxiety, analgesic, anti-psychotic, anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, anti-convulsive

    Chemical name: Delta-8-Tetrahydrocannabinol AKA Delta-8-THC
    Boiling point: 175-178 * C
    1. Similar to delta -9
    2. Less Psychoactive
    3. Anti-vomiting and more stable than Delta -9

    Chemical Name: Cannabinol AKA CBN
    Boiling point: 185 * C
    Features: oxidation, is broken down, by-product, sedative, antibiotic

    Chemical Name: cannabichromene AKA CBC
    Boiling point : 220 * C
    Features: anti-inflammatory, antibiotic, anti-fungal

    Chemical Name: Cannabigerol AKA CBG
    Boiling Point: MP52
    Features: anti-inflammatory, antibiotic, anti-fungal

    Chemical Name: Tetrahydrocannabivarin AKA THCV
    Boiling Point: <220 * C
    Features: painkiller, causes euphoria

    Hope this helps :)

    its been known about for a while, to cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy its very noticable, because not only does it take nausea away it gives them an appetite

    i vape at 200. if i vaped at 220 would it have add any significant damage? or na

    No damage at all!
    If you vape at 220C you'll get more substance from you bud.
    THCV as you can see is a painkiller and causes euphoria.
    If you take all your duff weed and vape it on 220C you'll be surprised that you can still get high from it.

    I myself vaporize weed up to 230C and hash up to 260C

    "Significant amounts of benzene began to appear at temperatures of 200° C. (392° F), while combustion occurred around 230° (446°F) or above."

    And benzene is very bad stuff.

    From the following link:
    CA NORML Health Information

    Best vape temps are between 175 - 200C with the sweet spot at 192C for getting a lot of the good stuff and very little of the bad stuff (if ya really want to play it safe you can get a good buzz with virtually none of the bad stuff at 185C) If you go higher, you will get some more of the good stuff, but MUCH more of the bad. It's all a trade off.

    Combustion at 230C*? that is not correct at all.
    I had no tar and no combustion when I do so - if it were true then I would feel bad...

    Combustion start way more high...
  8. lwien123

    lwien123 New Member

    It said 230C or above. I would imagine that at 230C, it's where combustion just begins to begin.

    Meh I think the numbers are wrong...combustion appear at much higher temperatures and I would feel that.
  10. lwien123

    lwien123 New Member

    This was a scientific study. I can post up multiple studies that show the same numbers if you would like.
  11. m0sh

    m0sh New Member

    No no , I stand corrected.

    I'm sorry for misleading info about no damage.
    I just got scared for a minute then I did some research and found a nice post by 5drive
    So I guess its not that big of a deal but I'll try to stay away from 230C...but lwien123 what temp would you suggest i vape resin/hash or skuff?
  12. lwien123

    lwien123 New Member

    I really don't know. I only vape bud and never read any studies on resin/hash. I would think, though, that with resin/hash, you'd have to go to higher temps.

    honestly when i have kief/hash or whatever i dont vape it, i smoke the shit out of it.

    i dont like putting kief in my V tower, for whatever reason

    Well I stopped smoking for good and I do not intend to ever smoke again...also I don't get high from smoking these days.

    Dear users,

    Can we keep all units of measurement in standard please?

  17. m0sh

    m0sh New Member

    LOL that's an ignorant response mate...
    Sorry mate but not everyone is from the USA
    The standard for my country is C* and not F*

    Altho I would love to be able to edit my post and add Fahrenheit degrees for you...

    157 degrees Celsius = 314.6 degrees Fahrenheit

    180 degrees Celsius = 356 degrees Fahrenheit

    185 degrees Celsius = 365 degrees Fahrenheit

    220 degrees Celsius = 428 degrees Fahrenheit

    Hey, it was supposed to be tongue-in-cheek.

    I'm not a long time vape user, but I have come to some conclusions about vaping since I've had my NO2. It seems to me that certain herbs need different temperatures. Now I know someone will prove me wrong with scientific research, but I do believe it. Old, dryer weed seems to vape best at a lower temp. Fresh, green herb seems to work better at higher temps.....

    I have mixed hash with herb in my vape and it seemed to work just fine. I didn't put chunks in though, I mashed it into dust. Kief burns just fine because it's very fine to begin with. Also, at higher temps the herb seems to loose that good aftertaste that I really like.....:D

    Now the leftovers. I use them to make hash oil, so even if I don't have the temp high enough to completely vape the herb, I am not wasting anything......;)

    I have only used the one vape though, so my experience is limited. Perhaps we could get some sage wisdom from Buzzby on this one since he has used a vape for sometime now.........

    Some Where In Ded Land..........:cool:

    Well I'm vaping at 190C static after almost 9 month of vaporizing only without smoking almost entirely.
    I don't think that a fresh weed vapes better at higher temps.
    If your weed is wet it will just take longer to become dry but once you heat it up to his boiling point it won't matter how to weed was before.
    I think vaporizing is great for "wet" weed.
    Where I come from I get tons of wet weed- luckily not lately - and drying it for smoking can be a bitch while vaporizing is just prefect.

    I'm also wondering how do you make the hash oil? I have tons of AvB I want to do something rather then cooking this time around.
