I seem to remember a few people asking about cannabinoid vapor temps and I stumbled across this in my files...so here it is!

Vapor points and medical properties of some of the healing compounds in cannabis. A very nice list to have if you use a vaporizer.

Flavonoid and Phytosterol Components - Boiling Points and Properties
Apigenin

From California NORML, in an investigation of vaporizer effectiveness:

The vaporizer produced THC at a temperature of 185° C. (365° F.) while completely eliminating three measured toxins - benzene, a known carcinogen, plus toluene and naphthalene. Carbon monoxide and smoke tars were both qualitatively reduced by the vaporizer, but additional testing is needed to quantify the extent of the decrease.

Although the study was not designed to detect the highly carcinogenic tars known as polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, which are thought to be a leading culprit in smoking-related cancers, there was good reason to believe that they were suppressed, since they normally form at much higher temperatures of combustion.

Significant amounts of benzene began to appear at temperatures of 200° C. (392° F), while combustion occurred around 230° (446°F) or above. Traces of THC were in evidence as low as 140° C. (284° F).

So, really, the only way to safely consume the entire cannabinoid spectrum then, is to administer either orally or topically from cannabis processed at temps below 280 degrees C and titrate using the vaporizer at temps below 200. Cannabis extracts therefore, are most essential in consideration of the strictest terms of "medical cannabis" - are they not?

Perhaps the biggest flaw in the state's MMJ program is that it was designed around the concept of patients primarily being smokers. More emphasis in drafting the original bill was placed on preventing a perceived letting of the genie out of the bottle, as it were, than providing for the needs of the patient. Patients should be afforded the right to decide what their own medical needs are and determined in counsel with their primary physician. State legislators and/or the courts shouldn't be determining the dosages of a patient's medicine! This is clearly a violation of an individual's human rights. There's something really wrong going on here. State legislators, the career politicians, rather than carry out the spirit-will of the people in crafting a law, instead create a prison based entirely on unsubstantiated fear and political leverage. Jesus has got nothing to do with it. And like I say, the state's lawmakers haven't set anyone free, but merely allowed it's prisoners to have little gardens.

I use the digital Vapir vaporizer. Personally I've found the best temps for the six strains I go between to be 340*F-350*F max. Any more than that and when I take the product out to inspect, it is a little charred which is what you don't want. That is with very dry product which is just the way I like it, none of this moist medicine all my silly friends have. They always say "man that stuff is really dry it needs to be rehydrated or something" but what they don't understand is thats the way it supposed to be from what I have learned. Being to the Netherlands three times, all of the stuff I got over their was dry. Plus I tell my friends that your getting a little bit more from your CG being dried properly. I mean it's not like my stuff is crumbles apart when you look at it, but most of you know the consistency I'm talking about. Sorry about the side rant had too much coffee and just vaped.
