What is dry herb vaping?

Vaping cannabis and other dry herbs allows control over the exact temperature. Vaping your dry herb is much safer, more effective, can decrease the irritation and harmful effects caused by smoking, and can result in a more effective extraction of the active ingredients and therapeutic compounds of cannabis. Vaping makes estimating the dosage for medical patients easier as combustion can result in a loss of 20-80% of the cannabinoids in medical cannabis. Depending on the desired effect can influence your chosen temperature. You can find out more in our guide here.

What are cannabinoids?

Cannabinoids are a class of chemical compounds derived from hemp and cannabis that interact directly with the cannabinoid receptors found throughout the endocannabinoid system. 

The two main cannabinoids we hear of are delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD). Research has found that the cannabis plant produces more than 100 cannabinoids and about 300 non-cannabinoid chemicals. Here are some of the others and their benefits.

What is the endocannabinoid system (ECS)?

The endocannabinoid system is a widespread neuromodulatory system that plays important roles in central nervous system (CNS) development, synaptic plasticity, and the response to endogenous and environmental insults. The ECS is comprised of cannabinoid receptors, endogenous cannabinoids (endocannabinoids), and the enzymes responsible for the synthesis and degradation of the endocannabinoid. The ESC is not just exclusive to humans, nearly all Animalia except insects have been found to have endocannabinoid systems.
