Vaporizing Tobacco

I’ve haven’t really ever had the urge to vaporize tobacco. As a born again non-smoker, it just doesn’t feel right. However, the concept of vaporizing tobacco is something that deserves a lot of attention.

All but the most deluded smokers will probably agree to some extent that smoking cigarettes is an unsavory habit. By now, it’s no secret how deadly smoking is, and many of us know at least one person who had died from it.

So why is it that vaporizers, which can eliminate virtually all toxins, are used almost exclusively for marijuana? Are potheads not as dumb as we’ve been lead to believe?

A visitor recently asked me if I had any suggestions for vaporizing tobacco. I didn’t, and neither did Google. A quick web search on “vaporizing tobacco” didn’t produce much useful information. The best I could find were some pages listing the vaporization points of various plants. Tobacco’s seemed to be 125°C to 150°C (257F to 302F), which seems a little low.

Anyway, he said he was using a Vapir One at 350F with pipe tobacco, which produced a visible vapor and an immediate buzz comparable to smoking 3 cigarettes at once. I assume it was pleasurable as he mentioned that he used 5 or 6 water pipe sized bowls in one night.

Apparently there are already some smokeless cigarettes out there. Aeros claim to produce a nicotine and flavor vapor through capillary action, and to last up to 30 times longer than normal cigarettes. I’m not entirely sure how these work but they sound almost too good to be true. They declined my request for more information, citing concerns over trademark secrets.

Tobacco giant Phillip Morris is testing a new product called the HeatBar, which heats tobacco and is said to produce less smoke. Sounds like some sort of crude vaporizer, I’m guessing it’s mainly a loophole to skirt smoking bans in Australia and Switzerland, where it’s to be debuted. North Americans won’t see it anytime soon because apparently “it’s too strange a concept for smokers to embrace”. I guess Phillip Morris hasn’t seen too many late night tv infomercials.

The important thing to consider is that there are safer ways to ingest nicotine. Combustion is going out of style.

This post was fairly rushed, I’ll update as more information is available.

Quick addendum to this unfinished post

  • Commercial cigarette tobacco is loaded with nasty additives, be sure to look into some organic stuff
  • The Purple-Days vaporizer seems to be a good fit for smokers making the switch
  • It seems that Aeros are just a brand/variation of e-cigarette, which use nebulizers to vaporize a liquid nicotine solution.

    I’d be carefull of saying heatbar reduces smoke by 90%.. thats secondary smoke, I believe the user recieves no benefit

    Good point, 90% less smoke is still smoke and doesn’t mean it’s healthy. I didn’t mean to imply that, edited the paragraph.

    Those pipe add on ‘vap’ things are useless..
    They are selling a concept and a pice of hardware that may make it slightly easier..

    Try vaping without it.. sue the same techneque that the ‘vapor genie’ has on a bowl of ‘tobacco’ since apparentally it takes a skill to get the lighter in the right spot..
    All this argueing over the product is probably a distraction that they are both useless and the only usefulness if the guides in where to told your lighter.

    Thanks for posting this about my method of tobacco vaporization. I have recently lowered the vape temerature to 340F. I have limited the amount of actual cigarettes to about a pack a week. If anyone has any experiences let me know. I feel like the only person in the world doing this!

    I just bought a Vapour Genie. Its a product that advertises itself for Tabaco, though I have bought mine for pot. The reason I post is that I’m getting one for my Mother In-law. She has a chronic smoking habit that she’s desperate to quit, but cant – for various reasons. The Vapour Genie, I can assue you, is not usefless. Expensive for what it is Yes, but very good. I have been smoking bowls of pot for years and at 37 am getting worried about my lung health. So I have vowed to try a vapourizer or quit. Thankfully the vapourizer works! Let me stop some rumour;
    1) Its really easy to use, so dont worry about that. If you have coordinated hands, you can use it.
    2) It takes a few goes to use well. But then its easy. By the 3rd go you should have it licked.
    3) There are fumes. I have tested them under the bathroom light in the mirror to see what I exhale. No scientific I know but interesting. 1st thing. You notice fumes as you exhale – but it is very misty and doesent settle under the light. It dissipates very easily. 2nd thing. It doesent smell much at all, if at all. I asked the wife to smell and she (who doesent smoke anything) couldnt smell anything. If I smoke a bowl in the house it FILLS the house with smoke. With this – nothing.
    4) I’ve been proper stoned off it 3 times. The last time my best go with the VG. It definitley releases chemical compounds from the herb – no question. It seems efficient too.
    Point being, if it works for weed than I’m certain it must work for Tobaco. I’m going to get some pipe tabaco to try it since the VG also leaves you with the taste of the herb in your mouth – it might be nice with tabaco!

    I cannot say with 100% certainty that it is safe. I just dont know. I can say that at worst it produces a fraction of the fumes from a combustion process. Therefore: It must be a lot healthier for you.

    vaporizing tobacco is much, much healthier than smoking it. It is still just as addicting, but is great for people who want to be healthier but don’t want to quit smoking. I had a digi-vape that worked great, the temperature setting was a little off but after a few times its easy to find the temperature that produces the nicotine vapor without burning the plant.

    **Commercial cigarette tobacco is loaded with nasty additives, be sure to look into some organic stuff**

    Important point!
    Vaporizing commercial tobacco will create a vapor of more than just nicotine as there are many more added active ingredients, and thus you have more to worry about than simply negating the combustion by-products.

    Go organic, and you won’t have to worry.

    vaping tabacco produces a real smooth, rich, chocholate smelling/tasting vapor. I only use premium organic’s like black cavadish or dark burley. The tabacco should be nice and moist. Takes about a pinch to to fill the chamber in my volcano. Great with a little pot sprinkled on it.
    Leave the tabacco a little stringy, not finely ground if using a volcano because the fan will push powdery stuff into the valve and you’ll have to strip everything down and clean it.

    Good to keep the temp low, the tabacco goes pretty easily. I turn the temp up a notch with every hit.

    Be careful with jacking the temp up and cramming a big pinch into your chamber, then taking a deep hit. That will give you a headbuzz that will make you want to throw up.
    Also beware a sticky brown, sweet smelling residue can build up in your valve and balloon. If I turn the heat up too high, and fill the bowl to much, I’ll find condensation in my balloon. That usually forces me to strip it down and scrub.

    My wife can’t stand smoke. She HATES picking up a wiff of ciggarette smoke on my clothes, and she’s got a nose like a bloodhound. She HAD NO CLUE I was vaping tabacco right in front of her, and told me the room smelled like brownies. Vaping good tabacco can produce a nice aroma, and the rich smoke tastes great.

    You can get some great flavored tabacco’s at your local headshop typically.

    i got a cheap china digital vaporizer from ebay – $ 45 – and it works great – i quit smoking and now i only vape tobacco – i buy cheap pipe tobacco – $ 25 a pound and all day i vape only about 1 cig worth of tobacco

    $ 5 of tobacco last me over a month – i used to smoke buglar non filter roll my owns – over a pack a day

    vaping has a sweet taste when you get the technique right – my daughter just said it smells like graham crackers – my wife says it smells like play doh

    I vape pipe tobacco in my VaporGenie (I have the hand-carved version) all of the time. Me and my roommates actually enjoy vaping tobacco from it more than we do vaping pot from it. Gives you a nice head rush. Also, be prepared to take a nap or sit down for a while afterwards.

    I’m trying American Spirit right now. From experience smoking tobacco from a bong, I learned TAKE IT SLOW! It can hit you hard and fast, and making feel dizzy and nauseated. Same with the vape right now…just taking it slow and easy..very relaxing. The flavor is a lot better, and so far no nasty taste on the tongue.
    It takes WAY less tobacco in the vape than in a usual tobacco pipe, so be careful.

    Hi!

    I am a born smoker. Now I am trying to substitute cigarette smoking by vaporizing a pipe tobacco on volcano vaporizer. (before used a e-cigs, but liquid handling….. liquid chemical composition and …… in one word my pinion is that it’s “not natural to inject a nicotine”).

    I can not say that a person gets a “good feeling” when inhales a pipe tobacco vapor, but I think that it is “safer than smoking”.

    I have the feeling that vapor of tobacco is “heavier” than smoke (170 – 180 C, pipe tobacco heap first time vaporization). I am really really worried about this. I really do not want to think that i am getting more tar than nicotine when I vaporize in comparison to smoking. But… Another thing is the different “additives” to tobacco (I am sure that there are some) which probably can be more dangerous when vaporized and not burned.

    What I do now, I take the pipe tobacco (small heap) and heat it on 140 C for 20 – 30 seconds without a balloon. Than I take the same heap and heat it with 180 C with a balloon. Than I inhale. The buzz in this case is slightly visible and much more “lighter”. An it’s more pleasurable to “vaporize” in this way.

    People! Can you explain to me – AM I DOING RIGHT? Any suggestions about vaporizing tobacco “safe” or “not safe”?

    Thank you a lot for the answers.

    i vaporize ‘nakhla tobacco’ (250gram containers cost ~$10-40 Cnd.) in the da buddha vaporizer, and use the highest heat setting.

    Effect is much cleaner nicotine experience more like green tea compared to coffee. It is strong enough to reduce craving for smoking a cigarette, but not sickly strong. Mind you i smoke a max of 10 cigarettes a day. The 250 gram container (mint flavor or double apple last 30 days at least of multi time everyday use)

    best,

    I’ve been trying to stop smoking marijuana, and I’ve never been a cigarette smoker. However, I have turned to nicotine to replace mj. I use a magic-flight box to vaporizer organic tobacco, and it works beautifully. I also have the glass pipe that vapor genie makes, and it’s fun to use as well, and very effective. I don’t feel as bad about being a drug user now, but eventually I would like to quit tobacco, or smoke less of it.

    I’ve been ‘smoking’ tobacco with a few vaporisers for over a year now and I don’t miss a cigarette one bit. I’ve gone from smoking thirty cigarettes a day to vaporising about size grams of pipe tobacco over the same period. My lungs feel far better now and I can breathe a lot deeper than I could a year ago. My clothes don’t smell, my fingers are not stained and I know my health is better as a consequence of this switch.
    My only contention now is that I’m having to pay tax on my habit ( in the UK tobacco products are heavily taxed) that I know isn’t dangerous to me, much less to anybody else.

    The best tobacco to vapor is tobacco that you have personally grown. I prefer to grow the Virginia Gold. Google tobacco seeds and you will find how to get them. Why pay for tabacco when you can grow your own. You are allowed to grow more than enough in the U.S. Not sure about other countries. Home grown tobacco without the additives and vaporing so that no tar happens, has to be the safest form of tabacco use. I wouldnt trust any of the bulk tobaccos to be additive free.

    Nicotine boiling point is 247c, this would suggest that not much nicotine would be vaporized at the temperatures mentioned here. I’ve used an iolite for tobacco, the vapour is very harsh even through a water pipe connection. Iolite is only 190c max and the tobacco gets quite brown and dry. I’m not sure if I actually got any nicotine might just have been the placebo effect. Anyone tried anywhere near 240c?

  33. DavHon
    Posted May 2, 2011 at 5:40 pm | Permalink

    After smoking cigarettes for almost 15 years I have made the switch to exclusively using the vaporizer. I use an iolite packed with American Spirit, one bowl lasts about 10 minutes. For me this has been more satisfying than smoking — the rush can be felt almost instantly, I use much less tobacco, no smoke or tar thanks to no combustion. As others have mentioned, additive-free/organic tobacco should be used to achieve the best results.

    While vaporizing tobacco as opposed to smoking it is an incredible leap towards good health, nicotine in and of itself can be quite bad for a person’s health. Increased blood clotting, heartburn, increased blood pressure, cilia paralyzation, not to mention it’s cholinergic activity which impedes apoptosis, one of the methods used by the body to destroy unwanted cells such as cancer.

    Of course, there are potential positives associated with it’s use, which i will not dismiss: reduced anxiety, increased concentration, relaxation, etc. More than i know, never having used tobacco.

    What i am getting at here is more or less in response to simon [post 28] and to a much lesser extent, clara [post 26]. Don’t think that vaporizing tobacco is harm-free. There are still definite risks associated with nicotine in general, although overall your risk is indeed lessened by a metric crap-ton. For a person who has never used tobacco at all to have it in their head that vaping tobacco is harmless, would be a very bad thing. They will STILL be addicted, and there is STILL a list of VERY serious potential side effects ranging from heart disease to cancer associated directly with the consumption of nicotine and nicotine alone.

    For those of you confused by boiling points when evaluating vaporisation temperatures, realize that “boiling point” is the temperate at which a substance can no long remain in it’s liquid state. This is not the same as vaporization.
    Consider more common substances like water or gasoline. Heating water causes increasing vaporization that is readily observable as “steam”, even though the water has not reached its boiling point. And you certainly don’t have to heat your clothes to 212°F to get them dry.
    Gasoline vaporizes so readily that it is flammable even at sub-zero temperatures. At common ambient temperatures it vaporizes sufficiently to pressurize the can its stored in.
    The boiling point of Nicotine is so high that you will “char” your tobacco if you try to heat it that much. At slightly less than the boiling point of water, Nicotine’s vapor-pressure is high enough to be flammable (Research “flash point” to get a better understanding). The higher the temperature, the more energetic the vaporisation becomes, so sustaining high temperatures well below the boiling point, while maintaining a continuous airflow, could easily free much or all of a volatile compound from its substrate. Remember the clothes-dryer? Under the right conditions, it can blow “steam”.
    Certainly, some Nicotine could remain in the ‘spent’ tobacco, but probably much less than you would have lost if you were burning it, and you didn’t have to suck in all that tar/smoke to get it.
    As far as ‘other’ compounds go, those hardest to vaporise, that may or may not remain in the herb-of-choice, can still be obtained by ingestion. I hear it’s really nice that way.
    So vape gently, or vape thoroughly, but enjoy your clean lungs.

    I got a vaporizer with ceramic element for £25 on fleabay, it works very well for tobacco as well as other herbs and is a lot cheaper than many vap’s with metal heating elements.

    @Simon- ‘My only contention now is that I’m having to pay tax on my habit ( in the UK tobacco products are heavily taxed) that I know isn’t dangerous to me, much less to anybody else’

    Two things mate, have a go at growing your own as it quite easy if you have a little experience Google will sort out any problems as many growers are successful in the UK.

    Alternatively, and as part of your research for your own future crop, go to someone like Pureleaf, if you shred it yourself it isnt subject to UK taxes is regarded as an agricultural crop.

    I used American Spirit for the last 3 years, and have just started blending in some oriental leaf to bulk it up and give it a little something special, aroma and taste are excellent.

    I vape pipe tobacco in my table top at about 250 F. Very pleasant taste and it takes much less tobacco. I was smoking a pack a day with no buzz unless I hadn’t smoked in 4 or 5 hours and the vape gives me an immediately noticeable head change with around 1/4 of a cigarette worth of tobacco. And as others have mentioned, no smoke to smell up your home.

    My girlfriend & I have quit smoking entirely thanks to vaporization. We used to be pack-and-a-half a day smokers. We have tried many vaporizers and many tobaccos. We like a nice, thick, cloudy vape. It’s very satisfying and the kick is a bit stronger than a cigarette, so you have to be careful at first or you can vape too much and make yourself nauseous. Through our over a years worth if experimentation, we have found the optimum temperature for tobacco (for our tastes) is around 300F. The best results thus far come from a slightly moist cavendish style pipe tobacco. I prefer a vanilla or rum / whiskey flavor myself, but any cavendish will work well. Find the flavor that suits you. Be wary of using vaporizers with a downward angle on the bowl as they can spill your material on the screen, causing combustion to occur and defeating the purpose of using a vaporizer in the first place. Don’t use a vape with a bag system for tobacco, use a “whip”. I prefer not to use my vape’s built in fan for tobacco. Give it a whirl! Great way to quit smoking. Gets rid of the urges for longer period than a cig, smells a ton better, and doesn’t give you the carbon monoxide produced by combustion if you keep the vape at a proper (low enough) temp and don’t let your material touch the screen on the heat core.

    Great info folks,
    I’m really keen to use my Isolite vaporizer ( heats to 190 celsius) for smokin’ baccy,
    but have found cigarette tobacco ( Manitou Organic cigarettes) way too harsh to use, and not sure about pipe tobacco with all the flavors addded. Would there be any way you could adulterate the cig tobacco to be less harsh on the old gasper, like sprinkle some Blue lotus essence or some kind of other sweetner, rum, coconut oil???.

  43. Mike F
    Posted June 29, 2013 at 11:31 am | Permalink

    Yes, you sure can. I’ve even gone so far as to just add a drop of water to cigarette tobacco before. It will work, but the vape you get from it is not as thick & cloudy (which makes it a lot less satisfying for me personally). Another concern is all the additives you get in commercial tobaccos. I recently ordered some tobacco seeds online for Shamanic Tobacco (nicotiana rustica). This is the stuff the Native Americans put in their big elaborate peace pipes. It’s supposed to contain up to 3 times as much nicotine than the stuff they use for cigarettes. I won’t be able to do it this year, but I really can’t wait to try my hand at growing and curing my own vaporizer tobacco. In the U.S., there is no federal law against growing your own for personal use. They left that decision to the individual states. Make sure to check that your state’s Dept. of Agriculture to see if they have any laws regulating it. The only law on the federal books is that you can’t SELL it without a license as it has to be taxed. I’ll post again once I finally have tried this to let you all know how it goes.

    Hey Mike F
    Sounds great, you guys are lucky as, we poor bastards can’t grow tobacco in Australia – big business, no upstarts allowed! Anyway still keen to hear how your experiment goes,
    and any more possible additives to enhance commercially produced organic tobacco.

  45. Mike F
    Posted September 5, 2013 at 1:18 am | Permalink

    So a small update on additives… My girlfriend and I have recently started growing mint. We currently grow peppermint, spearmint, and sweet mint. They are all some excellent additives for flavoring natural tobaccos for vaporization. This is a must-try for mint lovers and menthol cigarette smokers alike! Each mint has its own characteristics and each vapes a bit differently depending on how dried it is. The most pronounced difference is noticeable with the sweet mint. When fresh-picked it has a very mild flavor, but when fully dried it produces an extremely strong minty fresh flavor and is highly recommended for trial by menthol cigarette smokers who want to use vaporization to quit smoking. Peppermint is reverse and is much stronger when fresh picked than when dried. Spearmint provides a medium level refreshing cool mint flavor that is almost equal whether fresh or dried.

    I am a long time smoker with multiple myeloma. I am heading for bone marrow transplant soon, if I past their criteria. I can not give up my nicotine smoking.
    I am also open to possibly using. Med THC, through my heavy chemo. Been reading about vapeing. DiVinci Ascent allows me to control temp enough to cape Anything, when and where I need it. I have found I enjoy Nirvana Red rum shisha, on top of a well pack bed of vaped/cooked tobacco(sweet pipe). Lower the temp to insure no combustion. Different temps shisha/tobacco, 290-300F.if it hits throat hard, it is too hot. You are smoking not vaping. Smoke hangs and contains dangerous chemicals. Vape is the chemical vapor on moisture…hits room temperature and disappears…no longer vapor. hope this helps those, who are not interested in how much smoke produced by vaping…but by how to vape properly to reap the benefits on a controlled budget. happy vaping. A pleasant alternative for those who still enjoy the act of smoking and the nicotine.

    Struck me as scary assumption…I almost laughed to think, are we still stuck inside this narrow minded box?? Really….Why are most people using vaporizers, vaporizing Marijuana….. LOL it’s those type of assumptions, statements that….foster negative propaganda towards vaping on a whole. I too can say I am a non-smoker, and still enjoy my nicotine with no upset to my life. As Well,:)

    Surprize…a lot of people can and do think outside your small box. you can vape any herbal supplements or create tea, it’s not about marijuana….unless you believe, the Internet represents all segments of our society. You have age segments, and opinions that smoke pot and sit online all day long, while others, the majority, are using vaporizing to assist with maintaining, and assisting us to a better healthier life. Herbal remedies have kept the human race alive long before, corporate drug and alcohol companies existed.

    Can anyone advise me on the safe temperature range to vapouriser tobacco please. I am thinking of getting an arrizer solo to use for the purpose of vaping tobacco, is this a good choice, would the downward facing bowl be a risk for tobacco spilling on to the screen . Thanks

    I’ve been vaporizing rolling tobacco with a Pax ploom for a while now. It works, I’m happy with it – you can take small puffs like a cigarette. I’m still confused as nicotine’s boiling point is 470 F., but the Pax maxes at 410. I’m pretty sure I wouldn’t be able to stop getting nicotine through some kind of placebo effect and be satisfied. Vaporization seems to be a gradual process. It works for me, not too inconvenient to carry and use.
