Vaporizing cannabis is done by heating any form of cannabis, including flower, waxes, and oils, to 329-374°F. This temperature is important because it allows the cannabis to evaporate into vapor to inhale instead of burning the plant or plant extracts like smoking does.
You can purchase a vaporizer for your home and it will emit the evaporated particles into the air where you can breathe it in, free from the hazards of smoke. Many people who vaporize cannabis choose to do so with a vape pen, which is a more affordable and portable alternative to buying a tabletop vaporizer.

Cannabis science is one of the fastest moving frontiers medicinal sciences in the world. The pharmacology behind it has been accelerated by the realization that we’re all already marinated in cannabis-like molecules (endocannabinoids) and their receptors.
Endocannabinoids help regulate many physiological processes such as your mood, memory, appetite, pain, immune function, metabolism, and bone growth to name a few. Consuming cannabis also modulates this endocannabinoid system in many ways. The effects can be benevolent, although sometimes problematic.
Understanding the science behind cannabis is a key factor in being able to fully enjoy its medicinal value.
People have been using cannabis as medicine for thousands of years. The plant has also been widely used clothing, fuel, food, fiber, and medicine.
Cannabis contains more than 120 different cannabinoid molecules. But, as far as we know, only one gets you high: THC. The plant itself contains a huge amount of cerebral, non-intoxicating THC cousins with emerging medicinal potential. Their abbreviated names are often: CBD, CBG, THC-V, CBC, and CBN to mention a few.
