    AFOAF is looking for a healthier way to smoke their spice. AFOAF was wondering if buying a vaporizer would be worth it and if it would even work on the spice blends?
    AFOAF is intrested in the Vapir No2. AFOAF smoked a spice blend 3-4 times a day for depression/anxiety any help any could give AFOAF would much be appreciated. thanks!

    SWIM has a lightbulb vape (not the same, but it still works for proof of concept if you know just how to heat it) and SWIM managed to vaporize a spice blend called Bonsai fairly easy, it seems to have a much lower vaporization temp than THC or CBD.

    It CAN build up on the sides though, so if you get a hose vape, be careful of vaporizing the recondensed chemicals and getting too much.

    ^^ That was part of the point. I don't think there is a solid yes/no answer.

    As far as I've been able to gather here there are just too many variables- from the substrate used (and likely its moisture level), to the cannabinoid(s) used, to the temperature and type of the vaporizer, and probably a number of other variables. Probably even a little opinion thrown in for good measure as to what constitutes successful vaporization.

    I would love to see someone do a truly thorough write up of vaporizing canabinoids/cannabinoid blends.

    hmm I don't know if OFOAF can justify a fairly decent $ amount purchase (the vape) with so little info :\ hmmm.

    About 2mins ago swim just put together his glass bulb vaporizer and used a heatgun under the glass to vaporize the am-2201/damiana blend. He does get effects from it but it seems more needs to be used to get the effect.

    AM-2201 does in fact vaporize, along with JWH-122, JWH-250, JWH-081, and JWH-203 through SWIMS research. SWIM did this using a Pyrex bulb-n-stem pipe. A BIC lighter would vaporize the substances nicely. I wish I knew at what temp these RCs vaporize at, but atleast SWIMS experienced each phenomena. Vaporizing it off a blend would work, however; the plant material itself may produce its own non-cannabinoid vapor. If you wanna reduce harm try using filters for the smoke.
