Recommended Temperatures for Vaporizing Herbs

Nip it in the bud, try something new...

By now, whoever visits this site is probably aware of what vaporizing is (if this is a misconception you could always look back on our article "The Vaporizer Files"). However, did you realize the abundance of possibilities that are available in this innovative world?

Vaporizing is simply a healthy substitute for combustion and so not just something that's confined to the great green grass... These herbs have a long history of being smoked by many different tribesmen and so it's not restricted to vaporization alone, though we should count ourselves lucky that we have the opportunity to conduct a healthier lifestyle.

The list bellow is intended for inspiration and the temperatures indicated are also something to experiment with, for not everyone enjoys the same potency…
