Health Benefits to Vaporizing

on May 10, 2017

Vaporizers are far healthier than other ways of ingesting cannabis. Using a vaporizer will eliminate harmful carcinogens, give you more value for money, plus the precise heating controls allow a more personalized user experience.  

More and more, people across the UK are switching to vaporisers and with good reason. They’re more efficient with your herb, don’t contain the unhealthy carcinogens that you find in cigarette smoke, and they’re much more discreet than bongs or joints.

Another enticing feature is the exact control you have over the temperature you vaporise at. Many modern vape units have digital interfaces or Bluetooth apps that let you control your temperature to a very precise degree.

Newbies might wonder why you need to control the temperature so exactly, vapor is vapor, right? Well, that’s not entirely true. Vape companies are giving all these extra options for a reason and understanding little things, like why your vape temperatures matter, could have huge benefits for your health and lifestyle.

Keeps Lungs Safe

Vaporizers heat up your herb until it releases vapor, no surprises there, it’s all in the name. But this simple reason is why many people in the UK prefer vaping. It’s because it doesn’t subject your lungs to any of the harsh smoke or carcinogens. Simply smoking a joint will heat your material to the point of combustion. This danger zone is where harmful carcinogens are released that are found in smoke. The vaping method has clear benefits to those who suffer from asthma or other respiratory problems.

Customise The Effects Of Your Vape

A vaporizer works by taking advantage of the key heating points of the active ingredients in your herb. Getting to know these different temperatures means you can actually help you to customise your high. Cool, huh?

The following is a list of different temperatures and the effects that can be gotten at those levels.

157 °C/ 314°F

THC - Pain Relief And Euphoria

At this temperature analgesic effects of THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) can help relieve pain and there is a release of euphoric effects for the highs we all know and love. This setting is great for alleviating pain while reducing anxiety, bear in mind though for some users THC can induce paranoia.

175°C/ 347°F  

Delta 8 THC - Anti-Nausea

At this level, there is a very similar level to THC but it also produces an anti-nausea effect.

180°C/ 356°F

CBD - Anticonvulsant, Antipsychotic, No High

CBD (cannabidiol) is the active ingredient that is best for those looking for the medicinal benefits. It works to help prevent convulsions, acts as an antipsychotic, and, of course, it also stimulates the user's appetite. It also helps counteract any feelings of paranoia induced by THC and prevents a psychoactive high.

185°C/ 365°F  

CBN - Sedative Effect

CBN is often found in small amounts but your vape can be used to extract all of it. It is associated with sedative effects.

220°C/ 428°F

CBN - Anti-Inflammatory

CBN has anti-inflammatory and antiviral effects and it may have some antifungal properties, too. It is also thought to enhance the painkilling effects of herb.

220°C/ 428°F  

THCV - Be Careful

THCV seems to moderate the effects of THC but the results of the research are still in dispute. Be careful at this temperature as it is very close to the flashpoint for dry herb and can cause combustion.



If your weed combusts then you’re losing the benefits of vaping and subjecting your lungs to harsh smoke. Harmful carcinogens will be present in vapor from combusted herb. You might as well smoke a blunt at this point.

Tips To Get The Best Health Benefits Out Of Your Vape

  • Grind your herb down, as this increases the surface area and helps release even more vapor.
  • Don’t overload your chamber as this restricts airflow and increases risk of combustion.
  • Make sure your vape is regularly cleaned as over time resin can build up and restrict the air passage. This affects the quality of the vapor and increases the risk of combustion.
  • Take long, slow draws to ensure that the vapor is sufficiently dense and to reduce the risk of herb particles being sucked into the airway.
  • Keep your mouthpiece clean, over time saliva from your lips can build up. This can be the perfect culture for bacteria so make sure to give it a wipe or swap it out frequently.


Vaping is the healthiest way to benefit from the many active ingredients of herb. You can get the exact effect you want and all without risking your lungs. For a full range of precise, high quality portable vaporizers and desktop vaporizers check out our UK webstore here.
