FAQ: Vaping Cannabis Flower

Updated: Nov 2, 2022

Medical decisions should not be made based on advertising. Consult a physician on the benefits and risks of particular medical marijuana products.

“I bought a cannabis flower dry herb vaporizer. What temperature should my vaporizer be set on to achieve my desired effect?”


The best way to find the heat setting that works best for you is to experiment. Please keep in mind that two flower vaporizers set to the same temperature can sometimes produce a different type of vapor.


Additionally, each strain contains different levels of terpenes and cannabinoids, which contribute to their smell, taste, and effects. These organic compounds volatilize at various temperatures and will alter your experience.

Cannabinoids and terpenes in cannabis have different boiling points. Each organic compound has its own unique function- so you can check the profile of your strain and decide the perfect temperature for exactly what you’re trying to achieve.
