When cannabis is heated within a temperature range of approximately 260F to 350F cannabinoids and terpenes are released as vapor. This is not “smoke” but vapor similar to steam (but much cooler). This vapor can be ingested (like smoke) so the benefits of the combination of active ingredients (cannabinoids) and flavor(s) (terpenes) can be enjoyed by the consumer. The byproduct of this process is cannabis flower that is (for the most part) void of cannabinoids or terpenes. Some people find secondary uses for this process flower. The color of the flower also changes to a dark brown color but is not burnt. This is because this is no combustion in the vaporization process.
