Coil Temperatures are the Latest Refinement in Wax Pens
I’ve been loving the Dr. Dabber Ghost and Light for about two weeks, and am blown away at how clean the taste is. Part of it is using titanium for the coil, but the other huge factor is the coil temperature. When I primed the Coil for the first time, I noticed it didn’t instantly glow red. I was concerned…but knew that the Dr. advises lower temps… and for good reason. Lower temps means higher amounts of …. and much better and pronounced flavors.
But why? Lower temps are much better for preserving terpenes and the THC. Terpenes and cannabinoids vaporize in the same range of temperatures. Its possible with high temperatures to actually re-introduce combustion back into the equation, something to be avoided for a host of reasons. Low temps. It’s the only way to dab.
Terpenes? Here’s a little more from Wikipedia:
Terpenes (/ˈtɜrpiːn/) are a large and diverse class of organic compounds, produced by a variety of plants, particularly conifers, though also by some insects such as termites or swallowtail butterflies, which emit terpenes from their osmeteria. They are often strong-smelling. They may protect the plants that produce them by deterring herbivores and by attracting predators and parasites of herbivores. Many terpenes are aromatic hydrocarbons and thus may have had a protective function. The difference between terpenes and terpenoids is that terpenes are hydrocarbons, whereas terpenoids contain additional functional groups.
