Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Cannabinoids!

What are cannabinoids, what do they do, and what’s the perfect temperature to experience the maximum benefits from different cannabinoids?

If you’re new to marijuana, or just looking to find out more about what is the science behind different cannabis strains, then keep on reading! We are going to speak about what cannabinoids are, how cannabinoids affect you, and what is the best temperature range for getting the most out of your favorite marijuana strains.

Every strain of marijuana is a little bit different. Even some strains may have different characterizes depending on when and how they were grown, and how pure the strain is. That’s one of the most difficult things associated with marijuana, consistency. It’s hard to say, ‘just smoke this amount, and you’ll experience this.’ Everyone is different, enjoys marijuana in different ways, and strains can have different effects depending on how they were grown and when. Understanding the science behind cannabinoids, what they are, and how they work will make choosing your favorite strains of cannabis much easier.

There are over 110 cannabinoids which make up the cannabis plant. However, the two most dominant cannabinoids are THC and CBD. Some other cannabinoids are CBN, CBC, CBG. Each has a different heating point, and each will be in different strains of cannabis in different strengths.

  • CBD (cannabidiol) – CBD is responsible for a feeling of calm, without the traditional high of THC which many users represent with marijuana. CBD is non-psychoactive and is used mainly for medicinal purposes. CBD is ideal for stress relief, relief from anxiety, pain relief and for the treatments of symptoms associated with several different conditions like MS. In many countries around the world, it is legal to purchase medicinal products which contain CBD over the counter.
  • THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) – THC is responsible for that ‘high’ feeling which many people that try marijuana experience. If you enjoyed the relief you experienced from marijuana, but don’t want the high, then you need to avoid the high THC strains. Many people still use THC dominant products and strains because of the high and euphoric feelings which they experience.

The THC and CBD content plays an important part of how you will feel after you either vape, smoke, or ingest cannabis product, so will the strain of marijuana. It also varies from person to person depending on their tolerance, size, and the amount of cannabis they consume. That’s what makes medicinal marijuana so hard for many doctors to prescribe. With pharmaceuticals, you usually start with a higher dosage and then transition down depending on the effects and side-effects. When you first try marijuana, it’s important that you start at smaller amounts and then transition up until you feel comfortable. The same applies if you switch the delivery methods or change to a different strain of marijuana.

Did You Know That the Temperature You Vape or Smoke at Plays an Integral Part of Utilizing Marijuana?

When you smoke marijuana through traditional methods, you don’t have a lot of control over the temperature. You’re using a flame to ignite the marijuana, and you’ll actually burn more material than you’ll inhale. Vaping is a healthier and more economical way to use cannabis. It’s also much better for temperature control and getting the most out of the cannabinoids out of your cannabis. Burn your marijuana too hot and you’ll miss out, simply burning everything. Set it too low, and the cannabinoids in the marijuana won’t evaporate.

Below are the recommended boiling points for the top five cannabinoids:

  • THC - The recommended boiling point for THC is approximately 157°C/315°F.

  • CBD - The recommended boiling point for CBD is approximately 180°C/356°F.

  • CBN - The recommended boiling point for CBN is approximately 185°C/365°F.

  • CBC - The recommended boiling point for CBC is approximately 220°C/428°F.

  • CBG - The recommended boiling point for CBG is approximately 52°C/126°F.


There is no guarantee that these temperatures and the same amount will affect two people the same. This is just an approximate guide to help you unlock the cannabinoids in your favorite strains of marijuana. Vaping has become an increasingly popular choice for people to have their favorite herbs. First, it avoids all the negative aspects of smoking pot like carcinogens which can affect your health. Inhaling smoke which contains carcinogens can lead to lung and heart disease, as well as a variety of different cancers. Secondly, vaping is more efficient. It allows you to experience all the benefits which marijuana has to offer, is a more affordable and economical way to utilize marijuana, and lets you customize your vaping experience depending on which cannabinoids you’re looking to unlock from your marijuana.

As with any medications, it’s important that you speak to your healthcare professional before stopping or starting any new medication. Start off with small amounts of marijuana and then work your way up until you reach a comfortable level.
