Smoking is the most primitive way known to man to inhale a substance. When one smokes, the substance is heated to very high temperatures, sometimes well exceeding 1200ºF. This temperature (which is much hotter than necessary for inhaling the flavor and essence of a plant) burns the material and causes it to be converted into smoke. This smoke can then be inhaled by the smoker in an attempt to obtain some of the benefits of the substance.
Although not without some benefits, smoking has substantial dangerous and hazardous side effects including the production of many carcinogenic and harsh byproducts such as smoke and tar. Simply put, smoking is the equivalent of driving a nail into a small piece of wood with a sledgehammer. There is a better solution. So why should I use a vaporizer for medical marijuana?
Vaporization utilizes advanced digital microchip technology to heat up the material only to the temperature most effective for gently releasing the pure flavor and active elements. In this optimal condition there is no burning and there is no smoke, only pure vapor.
The air² VAPIR system utilizes a state-of-the-art convection technology to heat herbal matter. Hot air is blown through a disk implanted with herbal material such as tobacco and other plants commonly used in aromatherapy. The hot air induces the material to release its full flavor along with its active and volatile elements. This easy to inhale vapor cloud is achieved without burning of the material. Digital accuracy helps to insure that material is not wasted or over heated. The flavor and plant aroma are then inhaled through the outlet inhalation valve.
What about odor development? Are non-smokers bothered by vapor?
No. There is only a minimal development of odors compared to smoking. No bothersome smoke is created, and non-smokers are not subject to any adverse effects when sharing rooms with users.
Only a few minutes after the application you will not notice any odor in the room.
How can I inhale optimally?
Vaporized herbs hardly irritate the respiratory tract in comparison to smoked or fumigated substances, but are not totally irritation-free in any case. The material used, the quality of the vaporizer and the inhalation technique are factors which play a decisive role. Inhale half of the volume of air that one could normally inhale.
Hold your breath for a few seconds and exhale slowly. It is recommended to consciously concentrate on your respiration.
After a certain individual acclimatization phase you will then find that the vapors can be inhaled optimally at the user’s ease.
Why is the VOLCANO more expensive than other Vaporizers?
In developing the VOLCANO the aim was to offer a convincing vaporizer with – in all respects – outstanding features. They did not only focus on top-quality material and craftsmanship but went beyond that to offer the user a safe device, easy to operate for a convenient application. In addition, it was our intention to create the prerequisites for efficient and controlled vaporization.
The unique patented VOLCANO System Technology conveys air enriched with flavors and active ingredients into a balloon through a valve. Through the innovative valve technique the generated vapors will be completely collected in the balloon and the user can inhale the vapors separately from the device. The content may be inhaled at ease, independently from the vaporization process both comfortably and safely.
In order to achieve the best results, a vaporizer requires an air pump to guarantee a constant air flow, a heat accumulator to grant a precise air temperature and finally the unique valve technology to ensure a simple, reliable and convenient application.
Those top-quality, technical features are only offered by the VOLCANO.
The VOLCANO has gained a reputation among experts as the most technically advanced and professional vaporizer available.
Because vaporization technology has yet to be FDA approved, we cannot assert claims that vaporized inhalation is safer or more healthful than smoking. At this time, we do not endorse or encourage the possibility that vaporization may be used to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any ailment or disease. Our Vaporizers are intended for flavor delivery and aromatherapy. Our products are not intended to administer medicinal or illegal products of any kind.
