Vaping has become a new standard in the cannabis industry. Many cannabis users appreciate the departure from inhaling the combusted particles from lit herbs in a joint or pipe, preferring the smoother, more pleasant experience of inhaling vapor.
What’s more, a laboratory study cited in a report from the National Center for Biotechnology Information suggests that vaporizers extract more active cannabinoids with fewer carcinogenic byproducts than smoking. In other words, vaping can be a more potent and less harmful way to consume cannabis.
Many marijuana users are drawn to desktop vaporizers as their vaping device of choice. Desktop vaporizers offer higher quality and more reliable solutions for those who prefer to vape at home. For one, their consistent energy source (plugging into an electrical outlet) ensures that there are no interruptions to airflow or heat, creating more efficient herbal ingredient activation and more potent, high-quality vapor. The best vaporizers also offer increased precision when it comes to temperature and potency control, which results in a more pleasant and potent vaping experience.
When looking for a top-of-the-line vaporizer, cannabis aficionados and medical marijuana patients might consider the Volcano Classic or Volcano Digit from German manufacturer Storz & Bickel. Storz & Bickel established the first vaporizer-related patent and have since worked to perfect the forced-air system for a revolutionary vaporization experience.
This use of forced air is the key innovation in Volcano vaporizers. The convection heating system disperses air evenly amid the plant matter for a better and more consistent inhalation experience. Unlike other vaping devices, the Volcano is designed with an aluminum heating block and stainless steel chamber for consistent, pure vapor production.
The Volcano Classic model has been one of the most popular forced-air desktop vaporizers on the market since its launch in 2000. Winner of the 2013 Cannabis Cup for “Best Product of the Year,” this product has a detachable balloon chamber, which separates the vaporization and inhalation processes. This makes for a simple and effective portable vaping experience. In fact, the portable nature of the balloon makes it the perfect companion piece for large groups of people, and the balloons can be prepared ahead of time for ultimate convenience.
For medical marijuana users, the lightweight balloon makes it extremely easy to use, even if the inhalation dose is being administered by a second party — a nurse or caretaker, for instance. The balloon is food-safe, heat-proof, odor-free and practically maintenance-free. The design makes inhalation easy and comfortable, perfect for medical or recreational use.
The Volcano Digit is another popular desktop vaporizer from Storz & Bickel. Similar to the Classic, its signature cone-shaped design houses a powerful convection heating system that enhances the benefits of dry herb without the toxins and harmful byproducts of smoking. It also features a removable balloon bag which can be completely detached and separated from the device for pure, clean-tasting, and portable vapor (best if inhaled within 15 minutes). As an upgrade to the Volcano Classic, the Volcano Digit features a digital control interface with an LED temperature reading.
Each Volcano vaporizer is manufactured in the Storz & Bickel factory with fine materials and precision craftsmanship for long-lasting quality and reliability. What’s more, the investment is protected by the Storz & Bickel warranty.
When it comes to vapor, the Volcano’s latest innovations in design and technology clearly rise above the competition.
