Pax 3 Temperature Comparison – Best Vape Temp for Pax 3

If you’ve read my Pax 3 Review then you know how thoroughly I like to test vaporizers. I wasn’t satisfied with the standard battery of tests so I put the Pax 3 through a gauntlet of tests. I compared Pax 2 vs Pax 3 heat up times, tested the best grind for the Pax 3, and even modified the Pax 3 into a Dab Rig!

I wanted to leave no stone unturned sort of speak in regards to testing to the Pax 3. So I set out to answer the one question most frequently asked, “which temperature is the best for the Pax 3?” To find out the best tempt to vape for the Pax 3 I decided to vape a bowl at each temp setting all in one sitting. That’s right, you’re about to see me get progressively more stoned as I vape 4 bowls in a row through the Pax 3 and report my findings. Enjoy!

Pax 3 Vape Temps

The Pax 3 has 4 vape temps and increases in temperature in 20 degree increments as follows:

  • Pax 3 Temp 1 = 360
  • Pax 3 Temp 2 = 380
  • Pax 3 Temp 3 = 400
  • Pax 3 Temp 4 = 420

What’s The Best Temp to Vape For The Pax 3?

Pax 3 Temp 1 (360) – The first session was pretty underwhelming. Although it had a couple good hits, I didn’t quite get the flavor I was looking for. ABV at the end of the session still had some flavor and life left.

Pax 3 Temp 2 (380) – The second session was a lot better. The last hit was just as flavorful as the first hit. Like the first bowl there was a lot of life left in the ABV.

Pax 3 Temp 3 (400) – The third session was by far the most flavorful! The ABV was thoroughly spent, there was no green left in the ABV. This was by far the best tasting bowl out of the 4 bowls I vaped.

Pax 3 Temp 4 (420) – The start of the 4th session had some really good hits actually. The first hit being the best one out of the 60 hits I took while testing all 4 temps. Other than the few fantastic tasting hits the rest of the session went downhill pretty fast. By the end of it all the ABV was overspent and extremely brown.

Conclusion: Temps 1 and 2 left some green in the ABV. Temp 3 was my favorite experience by far. Temp 4 had a few amazing hits but wasn’t very enjoyable overall. For the best experience, I would recommend vaping on temp 3 then towards the end of the session crank that bad boy to temp 4 for a couple hits.

    I’ve noticed a vast amount of false ideas out there about vaping temperature, largely promulgated by cannabis web sites that need a new article every day.

    Years ago, someone compiled a table of all the boiling points of various components of cannabis flower. They then made the entirely unsupported assumption that you could set a vaporizer temperature at that number and then only receive the components with equal or lower boiling points. But that ignores the fact that you are heating a piece of plant that has innumerable different components.

    I happened to come across one article that links a number of scientific studies, and they came to the conclusion that you demonstrate – that lower temperatures are just inefficient. The studies came to the conclusion that 410 F was optimal (right in between the two setting that work best for you on the PAX3).

    So, the point was that if you want to “not combust sleep-inducing components that have higher boiling points”, then you are much better off getting some Sativa that already has lower amounts of those components.

    Yes, I have experienced the same thing as you, that if you use lower temperatures, you have to vape the bowl over and over again – because – the temperature is too low for best use.

    The “experience of users” when they do that is that they get less heavily stoned – and so less “couch-lock” – because the low temperature leaves the THC in the bowl. 🙂 So, that seems to validate the myth that the temperatures can work to change the composition of a hit, rather than just the strength.
