Gotta love 195-200 C
I'm all over the place with my temps. Sometimes I just want a tasty puff with only mild effects (low) and sometimes I want to get full effects (high). I don't stick to just high temps before bed, sometimes I will wake up and hit at high temps and sometimes I'll go through a whole day sticking to 180c. It really depends on my mood and my needs.
If you were to twist my arm and force me to choose a set temp for all my vapes forever I'd have to go for 220c Mainly because I need those heavy hits sometimes so would rather adjust to being a bit than bouncing off the walls with restlessness.
Is there a chart somewhere that show the range of temps and the effects like the lower temps being better for taste then at slightly higher temp light head high then full or something to that effect?
See Vaporizing Effects by Temperature from Vaporpedia, and the thread Vaporization temperature dependent selection of effects.
350-375 sounds about right for most Vapes.
JRR has a favorite vaping temp???? Damn,,you got a thousand vapes that run at 50 different temps. The best temp,,,,is the 'right' temp.
200 is my hot spot.
Do different vapes function a little differently at certain temps. For example a vape that couldn't really hold a temp so if it was set at a lower temp you couldn't take as big of a hit then if you had it at higher one?
How many quality hits do you get from the Launch Box? I'm new to Vaporizing, but my Doctor recommended that I purchase one. This seems to be the most affordable portable Vaporizer on the Market
if lowest price is the only criteria, then get a Ubie and a BIC lighter -- plus it has an all glass air path.
But really, imho, get a vape that has built-in temperature control for a better and predictable vaporizer experience. If you buy something cheap, and really enjoy vaporizing, you'll upgrade anyway. And most likely, if you get a good device, you'll enjoy vaporizing.
Most vaporizer users find the herb saving pays for the equipment.
This question is in the wrong thread, but I will trust that a moderator will move it thus I will not feel guilty posting off-topic.
Quality hits is a highly subjective term. I typically get 15-20 hits from a trench ( ~.1 g.). Sometimes I get more, rarely less. I just keep hitting until I don't like the taste any more, not because it stops giving vapour. The number of hits also varies because some are longer than others. This is why no one can give a definitive answer to your question, but if you are indirectly trying to figure out if the LB makes efficient use of your stash, the answer is that it can.
As to buying advice, the Ubie is cheap, but I think the Launch Box is worth the extra money. Having said that, it's way more complicated than just the price. Will you need something that goes where you go? If yes, then do you need stealth? Would you prefer battery power or butane torch? If it's a stay-at-home unit, does it need to blend in? Do you want thick clouds or thinner vapour? Do you prefer a whip to a bag? Will you want to connect water filtration? This list can go on a lot longer.
If you can, get two. You always need a backup, especially if (like me) you discover that you can never go back to combustion. I like having a portable unit (my LB) and a desktop unit (my Extreme), although with the Power Adapter I would consider the LB quite adequate.
I just got my EQ and I really like it so far!
Ive been looking at http://www.vaporpedia.com/wiki/Vaporizing_Effects_by_Temperature
and im a little curious, do i get anything "more" out of starting at 180, then increasing 10 every bag up till say 230, or can I save some time and go straight for 230 and get all the good stuff of the lower temps? Is there any benefit of depleting every "step" on the temp ladder on your way to your personal max temperature?
BTW, is it safe to assume that one could run the vape at a temp below any important vaporization-point, say 120-130c without any bag or whip attached, to "preheat" the herb before u raise it to ~200 or whatever? I've noticed my first bag usually only produce light vapor, while the second one is nice and thick, on the same temp as the first. So preheating it would probably help with that matter, would you say 120 is "safe" to heat it up to for a minute or two?
It's up to you to decide if you get a benefit by stepping up. The effects will be different. Obviously, if you deplete at one setting then when you step up, you will get only the effects of the actives between the two settings, but if you start at the higher setting you will get a combined release. I prefer to start at 160°C and step up by 10s, usually stopping at 180 and rarely 190.
As for pre-heating, the conventional wisdom is to pre-heat at a high temperature for 10-15 minutes without a load. I use 240°C and then drop down to 160°C and wait for temperature to stabilize before loading. I see no reason to pre-heat the load; in fact, that might detract from those first tasty hits since the terpenoids responsible for flavour vapourize at pretty low temperatures. Of course, if you use bags this point is moot. Flavour is definitely not the strong point of bags.
i start at 383F, then bump it up to 396F for the last 3 hits.
I tend to find the temp setting on my current vape that gets my herb as roasted as I want it, then just start there every time.
be it the LSV at 12
the SSV at 1.30
WW at 13.8V
The only real exception to this is the solo, where I use 4 until the vapor gets thin, then bump it up to 7 to finish. If I start at 7 my lungs feel like they want to explode out of my chest, and the ensuing coughing fit is not very pleasant at all.
I don't know the exact temps, but hot would be my guess
I go for dark brown ABV, and a bit of charring doesn't phase me (since I can tell it's not combusting, a bit of blackness doesn't bother me too much - I still try to avoid it though)
I would take my EQ to 250c (or whatever the max is) when I used that.
Basically, I try to get as much as I can from the herb without combusting...
I have wondered, would I be getting any significant losses of actives by starting with a high temp?
or just combining them together/boiling them off faster?
Hmmm....combustion start at 230C > as far as I recall I remember my EQ combusts at 260c! !!!
You should not get any significant losses if you start at a
.n higher temperature that doesn't combust .. but yes- vaping time will be shorter and the sedative feeling will be stronger
Ahh, well, I've never combusted with my EQ, maxed out, maybe I've got a different model with a different temp ceiling or something?
I'm not that up to date with the revisions etc, of the EQ
Draw speed could also be a factor, I only used it a few times for its non-bag functions.
I tend to prefer the lower temps to keep the flavour the longest. Once it starts to lose taste and clouds i increase the temperatures, rinse and repeat until it is medium brown or until no more clouds independent of temp rising.
In my DBV this usually means starting at 9pm and finishing at 1-2pm.
In my DV, i start at 185C (360F), then i rise in intervals of 5C until i finish at 200C (392C).
Nah, it was something special...the room was cold and the stuff I put inside was resin and I tried to max the temp and after 30 mins it got burnt!!! lol - I didn't use it when it combust and it was only weeks after I first gotten a vaporizer...this never happened again as I am no noob
377, or if i'm on the solo, start at 3 then last few crank it to 6
i own a aromed vaporizer and my interest besides the THC is in the CBD.
At which temperature do i get the best effect of the CBD without inhaling dangerous, carcinogenic byproducts?
Well vaporizing is certainly not dangerous!
Yes, still you can find "bad" stuff occurring from 204C and on...but its like inhaling gas at the gas station or nothing more then what you're inhaling in a western city...
Anyway, CBD boiling point is between 160-180C but there is more stuff like CBN (boiling point 185C)
I suggest you try 190C-200C , its my sweet spot.
