Best Temperature to Vape CBD Oil

Vaping CBD oil is one of the easiest and most rewarding ways to enjoy this non-intoxicating cannabinoid. Not all CBD vaping experiences are made equal, however, and Secret Nature CBD vape carts are a cut above the rest. Learn all about our live resin CBD cartridges and the best temperature to vape CBD oil in this guide.

What temperature should I vape my CBD?

Each cannabinoid, terpene, and flavonoid in cannabis has its own boiling point. When these oils are expressed at the tips of cannabis buds within resin sacs called trichomes, they vaporize easily. In oil form, slightly higher temperatures are required to reach vaporization. Therefore, most cannabinoid experts recommend that you vaporize CBD oil at temperatures between 200-220°C (365 F – 428 F).

If you vaporize cannabis oil at lower temperatures, you risk not actually producing any vapor you can inhale. If you vape your CBD oil at temperatures that are too high, however, it will burn, defeating the point of vaping. Set your vape pen within the correct temperature range, and experiment with different temperatures within that range until you find the setting that hits the best.

Will vaping CBD at higher temperatures yield better results?

According to one study, cannabis oil doesn’t express cannabinoids when it’s vaporized at temperatures below 170°C. When vaporized at 230°C, however, almost all cannabinoids are expressed. The researchers who conducted this study, therefore, concluded that higher temperatures yield better results when vaping cannabis extract, but only for THC. Other cannabinoids have lower boiling temperatures, which means that lower vape settings might be more appropriate.

If you raise the temperature on your CBD vape pen to try to express more cannabinoids, you risk scorching your oil and hurting your lungs. Cannabis combusts at a temperature just above the boiling point of THC, and there’s no need to risk combusting your oil just to vaporize CBD.

Now, it’s time to get familiar with the three Secret Nature cartridges we recommend the most:

1 Forbidden Fruit – CBD Vape Pen Cartridge, True Full Spectrum, Tropical, Sweet, Sour, Indica, Relaxing

Take a moment to scroll through the reviews we’ve accumulated for Forbidden Fruit. We don’t offer this strain in flower form, so there’s no reason for it to have achieved the level of popularity among our customer base that it has. In the end, we chalk it up to great flavor, great genetics, and great product engineering—Secret Nature live resin cartridges are a cut above the rest, and Secret Nature Forbidden Fruit is the unquestioned leader of the pack.

  • # of reviews: 53
  • Average rating: 5 stars
  • Sizes available: 700mg & 1200mg | Battery optional
  • Terpene profile: Tropical fruit and plum
  • Lab-tested for purity
  • Ships to all 50 states
What do Secret Nature customers have to say?

Joanna O. says that our Forbidden Fruit vape cartridge is just like vaping water with a fruity taste—that’s the level of purity you can expect from Secret Nature. Ulas K. tells us that he “searched all over the web to find the best and the cleanest vape” and that Secret Nature Forbidden Fruit is “amazing.” Other customers tell us that Forbidden Fruit is relaxing, the highest-quality vape they’ve ever had, and to wrap up our summary, let’s hear from Jay E.: “Sturdy, smooth, delicious, and discreet. I love it!”

2 Durban Poison – CBD Vape Pen Cartridge, True Full Spectrum, Sweet, Lime, Haze, Sativa, Uplifting

As a CBD version of the famous THC strain, Secret Nature Durban Poison captures the exact terpene profile of the original phenotype while doing away with the intoxicating components. It’s not just nostalgia that keeps bringing customers back to Durban Poison, however—this Secret Nature CBD vape cart option tastes great, and it contains the same 100% organic live resin that has put our cartridges on the map.

  • # of reviews: 45
  • Average rating: 5 stars
  • Sizes available: 700mg & 1200mg | Battery optional
  • Terpene profile: Pastry-sweetness accompanied by herbal and citrus undertones
  • Lab-tested for purity

What do Secret Nature customers have to say?

Let’s start with Eric. H, who says that Secret Nature Durban Poison is the “best cartridge I ever smoked in my life.” Eric isn’t alone in his sentiment—other customers echo his opinion on our vape cartridges by saying they taste better, draw better, and have better effects than any other CBD carts they have tried.

Most importantly, certain customers have even noted the difference that live resin makes. Ben S. said his Secret Nature Durban Poison cartridge was “extremely terpy and had a very distinct and enjoyable flavor,” and a naturally enhanced terpene taste is one of the most commonly noted benefits of live resin versus CBD oil manufactured using other extraction methods.

3 Lemon Diesel – CBD Vape Pen Cartridge, True Full Spectrum, Sweet, Lemons, Gas, Sativa, Uplifting

You’ll really notice the lemony sweetness of Secret Nature Lemon Diesel since its a live resin extract. No other extraction method does true justice to the delicious power of terpenes, and Lemon Diesel has one of the most memorable flavors of any cannabis strain. Sit back, relax, and turn lemons into lemonade with this tasty and effective Secret Nature vape cart.

  • # of reviews: 42
  • Average rating: 5 stars
  • Sizes available: 700mg & 1200mg | Battery optional
  • Terpene profile: Powerful lemon zest with hints of gas and haze
  • Lab-tested for purity
  • Ships to all 50 states
What do Secret Nature customers have to say?

Brian L. tells us a fascinating story about using Lemon Diesel on trips. He generally likes to use high-THC products, but our CBD cartridges get him by on the go. In summary, Brian says that Secret Nature Lemon Diesel “quality is great. Very ‘Lemony’. You DO get relief.” Other customers note their relief that our pen activates when you inhale without needing to press a button, which is more convenient than other vape pens they’ve tried.

What temp should I set my vape to?

You already know the right temperature range at which to vape CBD oil: 200-220°C (365 F – 428 F), and the boiling point of this cannabinoid alone is 160-180°C (320 F – 356 F). Picking the right temperature for vaping CBD is more of an art than a science, and it might take weeks or even months to settle on the exact temperature that works best for you. Here’s some of the supplementary information you’ll need to know as you come to a conclusion:

What temperature is best for vaping other cannabinoids?

Remember that vaping cannabinoids in oil form is slightly different than vaping them in flower form. However, understanding the base boiling points of each cannabinoid can help you calibrate your vape pen when using different types of cannabis. Here’s a list of the boiling temperatures of a few major cannabinoids.

  • CBN: 185°C / 365°F
  • CBG: 105°C / 220°F
  • THC: 157°C / 314°F
  • CBC: 220ºC / 428ºF
  • THCV: 220°C / 428°F

As you can see, cannabinoids have widely varying vapor points, which is part of why it’s hard to say exactly which temperature will yield the best results when vaping cannabis extract. You need to take the exact composition of the extract, including its terpene and flavonoid content, into consideration to pick the perfect temperature ranges for vaping CBD oil.

What temperature is best for vaping terpenes?

Terpenes may be just as beneficial as cannabinoids, and there are lots of different terpenes in each Secret Nature live resin cannabinoid cartridge. Just like cannabinoids, each terpene has a unique boiling point. Here are the boiling points of a few of the most popular terpenes:

  • Caryophyllene: 119°C / 246°F
  • Pinene: 156°C / 312°F
  • Myrcene: 166–168°C / 330–334°F
  • Limonene: 177°C / 350°F
  • Humulene: 198ºC / 388ºF

Caryophyllene releases its distinct flavor and aroma at a relatively low temperature, but other terpenes require greater heat to vaporize. Keep the terpene profile in mind as you decide which temperature is right for each strain of Secret Nature cannabis extract you try.

What temperature is best for vaping flavonoids?

Flavonoids are more common in plants other than cannabis than terpenes, but they’re less researched for their roles in cannabis. Together with cannabinoids and terpenes, flavonoids contribute to a cannabis-specific synergistic effect that appears to make this plant more effective than the sum of its parts.

  • Apigenin: 178°C / 352°F
  • Quercetin: 250°C / 482°F
  • Cannflavin A: 182°C / 360°F

Certain flavonoids, like apigenin, vaporize at a low enough temperature to accompany CBD. Other flavonoids, like quercetin, have boiling temperatures that are high enough to only vaporize with cannabinoids with similarly high boiling temperatures, like THC.

What temperature is best for vaping dry herb?

Dry herb vaporizes at a lower temperature than cannabis oil. While cannabis extract won’t vaporize until it reaches around 200°C, dry herb will vaporize at temperatures as low as 170°C. Most experts agree that you shouldn’t vaporize cannabis flower at temperatures higher than 210°C. Cannabis combusts at around 232°C, so higher temperatures could risk turning your cannabis vapor into harmful smoke.

What temperature is best for vaping live resin?

Like other types of cannabis oil, live resin is refined to remove chlorophyll and other plant substances that don’t belong in finished cannabis extract. While conventional cannabis oil is extracted from dried and cured (decarboxylated) flower, however, live resin is extracted from cannabis flower fresh off the stalk.

Live resin tastes better because it contains more natural cannabis terpenes, but it vaporizes at the same temperature as other types of distilled cannabis oil. Ideal temperatures vary from vaper to vaper, but many live resin aficionados end up setting their batteries somewhere between 203-208°C.

Should I change my vaping temperature based on extraction type?

Determining the boiling point of cannabis oils is complicated, but generally speaking, the more isolated the cannabidiol molecule becomes, the more heat is required to bring it to an excited, gaseous state. Cannabis flower releases its oils at lower temperatures than winterized cannabis extract, which is often the first stage of the cannabis extraction process.

Winterized cannabis oil is then distilled, which might increase the boiling point of the resulting oil mix slightly. If cannabis oil is refined further to create CBD isolate, the boiling point may increase again. The main change in the ideal temperature to vape CBD oil occurs between cannabis flower and winterized cannabis extract, but isolate CBD may offer better results when vaped at temperatures close to the combustion point of 232°C.

How to make sure your CBD vape pen is at a low temperature

Even though you’re an expert on the right temperature for vaping CBD oil, you still might need to learn how to check the temperature of your Secret Nature vape pen. Grab the instructions that came with your package, and follow these three steps to optimize your vaping experience:

1 Make sure the battery is charged

If its battery is not fully charged, your vape pen may not be able to get to the desired temperature. Plug your pen into the wall and wait until the indicator light shows a full charge.

2 Adjust the temperature settings

Using the instructions in the manual, adjust the temperature of your pen up or down as desired. Remember to land in that sweet spot between 200-220°C.

3 Inhale and evaluate

Take the first puff of your calibrated vape pen, and evaluate the taste. Stickiness on your tongue and a lack of vapor can be a sign that your pen is set too low. A bad taste and harsh draw, however, could be a sign that your vaping temperature is too high. If you’ve reached the right temperature for vaping, however, you should blow out a thick, delicious cloud of non-intoxicating cannabinoid vapor.

Picking the best temperature to vape CBD oil FAQ

Let’s conclude this guide with answers to a few common questions about vaping CBD:

Can I vape CBD with medical marijuana?

Depending on the laws in your state, you may have access to medical marijuana. Remember that marijuana remains federally illegal, and all products offered at contain less than 0.3% THC. If you choose to use intoxicating cannabis products, using CBD at the same time may provide enhanced results. It appears that CBD modulates the action of THC in the body, so these two compounds seem destined to be together.

What states can I vape CBD in?

Secret Nature ships CBD products to all 50 states, and states around the nation are choosing to adopt the U.S. Hemp Roundtable’s suggestions for non-intoxicating cannabidiol legislation. Within a few years, comprehensive federal legislation will likely wipe the slate clean and provide a much fuller understanding of where cannabinoid law stands in the United States. Until then, we’ll refrain from commenting on legal matters and encourage you to educate yourself on all applicable state, local, and federal laws before using CBD.

Should I vape CBD if I don’t want to get high?

CBD is not considered to have strong psychoactive effects, which means it is non-intoxicating. Therefore, CBD oil is the perfect substance to vaporize if you want to experience all the aromas and flavors of cannabis without getting high.

Many of our customers specifically choose Secret Nature vape cartridges because they love cannabis but they want to broaden their horizons beyond THC. Given what you now know about the boiling points of the different cannabinoids, your vaping experience will be improved whichever cannabinoid you choose to use.

Why choosing Secret Nature is the best option for CBD vapers

If you’ve never tasted the difference between live resin and other extraction methods, now is the time. Capturing the exact terpene profile expressed while cannabis flower is in its prime, live resin allows you to savor the flavor like never before when you enjoy non-intoxicating CBD vapor.

Vaped at the wrong temperature, however, even the best CBD cartridges will only taste disappointing. CBD oil has a decidedly nasty taste when burned, so make sure you keep your pen in that sweet zone of 200-220°C for best results.

Whether you need help picking the right vape cartridge or you need help picking the right temperature, Secret Nature is here to help. Contact us with any questions, and make sure to let us know which temperature ranges ended up working best for you.

Vaping CBD oil is one of the easiest and most rewarding ways to enjoy this non-intoxicating cannabinoid.

How to Vape CBD: The Full Guide to CBD Vape Oil

If you’re wondering what’s the best way to use Cannabidiol (CBD), you may want to learn how to vape CBD.

Why you may ask?

Of the many different methods to use CBD, one of the most popular and enjoyable ways is vaping CBD oil.

Not only is vaping enjoyable, but it is also actually one of the most effective ways to consume CBD.

By vaporizing CBD, the cannabinoid content enters the bloodstream directly through the lung, which bypasses the body’s digestive processes, ultimately delivering a higher bioavailability of CBD than other methods.

In addition, vaping can provide stress and anxiety relief throughout the day, while serving as a great alternative to smoking cigarettes.

Although vaping CBD oil is not rocket science, some may be completely new to vaping and are wondering how to vape CBD oil, or whether its the right method for them at all. Well, let’s help address those concerns.

First, let’s look at the two primary methods to vaping CBD.

How to Vape CBD Oil: Your Complete Guide

Using a CBD Vape Juice
There are two primary types of CBD Vape Juices: flavored ejuice and CBD additives. Pre-Flavored Vape Juices are already flavored and ready to drip or fill the tank of your favorite device; while CBD additives can be used as an additive to your favorite non-CBD vape juice. Either can be used in most vaporizing devices by filling your device’s tank, or by “dripping,” which involves dripping drops of eliquid directly onto the cotton wrapped around your devices coils.

Using a CBD Vape Pen
Most CBD vape pens come packaged with a pre-configured CBD cartridge, making it quick and convenient to start vaping CBD. You simply order a CBD Vape Pen from a trusted provider (jump to our recommended vendors list by following this link), charge the device (if it isn’t already charged), and you’re ready to go. Simple as that.

Should I Use a CBD Vape Pen or CBD Vape Juice?

Getting right to the point:

Both of these options have their pros and cons, but in general, unless you have experience using a vaporizing device, or are looking to learn something new, the easiest way to vape CBD is to use a CBD vape pen. For experienced vape users, a CBD vape juice may be preferred because they are used to a certain experience that their device can provide them, or they prefer to mix CBD vape oil with their favorite vape juice.

For users new to vaping, on the other hand, a CBD Vape Pen provides an easy out-of-the-box solution with little to no setup.

The main con of using a CBD vape pen is that you will need to replace the CBD cartridges more often than CBD vape juice, resulting in higher costs. At the end of the day, it’s not a huge deal if you weigh out the pro’s and con’s, plus the benefits of CBD you’re receiving with either decision; however, we do recommend thinking over what works best for you unique situation before you make a decision.

Should You Try CBD Vape Oil?

Vaping CBD not only provides a casual experience for using CBD, it is actually more effective than other methods such as consuming CBD.

“In general, not all of the CBD you consume will directly affect your body: only a certain percentage will be able to enter your systemic circulation and produce its active effects. This percentage is referred to in science as “bioavailability,” and it strongly depends on the manner in which CBD is introduced to your system. For example, the oral bioavailability of CBD is roughly 15 percent. That means for every 100 milligrams of CBD that you eat, only 15 milligrams will actually reach your bloodstream.”

The reason orally consuming CBD is not as effective is because most CBD is not soluble in water, similar to how cooking oil does not blend with water. The CBD that does pass through the body is then filtered out through the liver, lowering its bioavailability even more. Consuming CBD is still effective, and we aren’t against it, but you’ll just have to consume more of it.

Vaping CBD, on the other hand, is a method which maximizes CBD bioavailability.

When you vape CBD, it does not pass through the gut or liver; it goes right to your lungs and diffuses directly into your bloodstream. “This avoids the first-pass effect altogether, allowing nearly four times as much CBD to enter your circulation for a maximum bioavailability of roughly 50 to 60 percent,” Leafly notes. In simpler terms, when you vape CBD you get the most out of a smaller dosage of CBD.

Now, in closing, please keep in mind that not all CBD Vape Juices and CBD Vape Pens are made equally. While there are amazing companies like Koi CBD, there are others who are in it for the money. Just like with buying any product, not every company has your best interests in mind. Some products are manufactured poorly resulting in a decrease in CBD delivery or contain traces of THC; so before you make a decision on which product to purchase, please do your research, ask for the company’s test results, consult our community, and refer to our Recommended Vendors Page.
