The Volcano Vaporizer is a state of the art aromatherapy vaporizer for releasing active elements from herbs, liquids and oils through vaporisation with hot air instead of combustion. The Volcano is proven to lower the amount of harmful chemicals
normally inhaled by smoking thus providing a safer alternative to smoking.
The Volcano Vaporizer comes complete with a variable temperature control from 130 °C (226 °F) to 226 °C (439 °F) perfect for releasing the flavoring and active ingredient in all substances before combustion occurs, thus resulting in a cleaner, nicer and healthier hit with no carcinogens.
The Volcano Vaporizer can be used all herbs and liquids with pycoactive properties. Below are some picture of hops before, during and after vaporization. As you can see from the picture the Volcano Vaporizer does not burn the hop thus studies have found the release of harmful substances dramatically reduced or completely eliminated.
