Volcano Classic

Volcano Classic VaporizerWhen it comes to herbal vaporizers, there is one product that is widely known and reputed to be the best on the market, and that is the Volcano Classic Vaporizer, made by Storz & Bickel. This vaporizer is regarded as the “Mercedes-Benz” of vaporizers for many reasons. One of the main reasons for its popularity is the very professional look and feel of it. Straight from the moment you open the package, you know you are holding a quality product. The professional packaging and manufacturing of this product gives it a very medical feeling. The Classic Volcano is constructed of high quality pieces, formulated from high grade molded plastic, which really lets you know that this is no toy.

The Classic Volcano consists of three pieces. The main unit is the base heating unit which is the most important part of the machine. This unit has a dial temperature control which can easily maintain a steady temperature; This is very important that the temperature not fluctuate. The base unit also heats up very quickly which makes the process much more quick and efficient. Another great feature of the heating unit is its ability to pre-heat. This heated air flow will allow you to collect more vapor in the balloon.

The filling chamber for the Classic Volcano is another great aspect of this vaporizer. It can hold up to 4-5 grams of herb. As with any vaporizer, grinding of the herb is a very important aspect to the quality and amount of vapor. Creating a very fine grind of herb will allow for a larger surface area for the heated air passing through the chamber and that will effectively lead to more dense vapor.

The mouth piece is the third part to the Classic Volcano Vaporizer, and one of the best parts. The mouth piece has a pressure release tip which will prevent vapor from escaping the balloon when detaching the mouthpiece from the heating unit. The Volcano also prevents any popping of the balloon during inflation, so you don’t have to worry about over inflation.

Some of the bigger overall advantages of this vaporizer over some of the other leading brands and models is definitely the fact that the balloon and mouth piece detach from the unit which allows you to take the balloon around and inhale where ever you are. Another great thing about this vaporizer is how quite it is and the fact that it is so easy to operate.

As with everything, there are also a few cons to the Volcano Classic. The most obvious downfall to this model is the price. This is definitely the priciest, non-digital unit on the market, but at the same time it is the best; you pay for the quality, same as in anything in life. Another con is the fact that the unit has no digital interface, however there is now a Digital Volcano Vaporizer on the market which makes it much easier to control and set specific temperatures.
