Cannabis concentrates offer an astounding blend of powerful effects and
dynamic flavors. At the point when the concentrates are warmed, the cannabinoids and terpenes are converted to vapor, giving you the tremendous range of elevated effects and flavors that cannabis is known for.

Knowing which temperature to heat your concentrates to is an essential detail. It can be the contrast between heavenly flavors and desired effect, or a disappointing and rough dab. The main difference is that low temp dabs provide the perfect balance between potency and preserving the effect of your cannabis; while a higher temp dab may produce more vapor, it may also increase harshness to your throat and lungs.

Having too hot of a temperature can also burn your terpenes! In the case you're new to terpenes, they're the features of weed that give the plant its interesting smell and effects.
THC and other cannabinoids are scentless, so terpenes are what gives each strain its unique taste and smell.

Each terpene is one of a kind in the remedial advantages it offers and the flavors it produces. Every individual terpene and cannabinoid has its own ideal temperature that begins activating these effects, as well as a limit.

The extraction strategy used, as well as the temperature at which you burn or even touch your concentrates, can significantly influence both the flavor profile and the collaboration between the cannabinoids and terpenes. This is called the “entourage effect” This means when we smoke or vaporize cannabis each individual cannabinoid and terpenes’ effects and benefits may change in the presence of each other.
