Volcano Vaporizer Review

Volcano Vaporizer Review and Tutorial ~ 8:49

The Volcano is a desktop vaporizer made by Storz and Bickel and currently rated as my best desktop vaporizer. It’s built extremely well, produces top vapor quality (taste, temp, density), and it’s one of the easiest to use.

It does take a few minutes to heat up but I’ve been running it pretty much daily for over five years and it still works as good as new.

This Volcano vaporizer review will break down and compare the two different types of valve systems, Solid Valve, and Easy Valve. Plus going over the differences between the Digit and Classic Volcano models. I think pretty much everyone has gone to the Easy Valve system which is the easier system but I’m going to miss making 10-foot volcano bags on 4/20 every year!

Volcano Solid Valve vs Easy Valve

The Solid Valve consists of high quality durable stainless steel and heat-resistant plastic. The solid valve also offers customizable balloon sizes. It will save you money on balloons but will need to be cleaned. The chamber and the mouthpiece are of higher quality on the solid valve. Overall it will cost about $5-10 per year to buy the replacement balloons for this setup.

Volcano Vaporizer - Easy Valve - Bag Vaporizer

The Easy Valve system is the Maintenance free design. It offers a single balloon size. The plus side to the easy valve is it will save you time due to no cleaning but it will cost you roughly $25-$50 a year in balloon costs. So there’s advantages and disadvantages to both valve types. I prefer the Solid Valve attachment because I like the option of creating my own balloons and it costs less yearly to operate. Others will disagree but this is purely user preference. There’s no wrong decision here.  In the end, it comes down to your opinion. If you want to avoid cleaning go with the easy valve, if you prefer a bit more flexibility or would rather have cheaper recurring costs then the solid valve would be your best bet.

The Volcano uses a forced air system to fill balloons. It also has a couple of different versions to choose from, the Digit and the Classic. I have the Volcano Classic but I’ll go ahead and explain the features for both of them.

“Digit” (Digital) Volcano vs Classic Volcano

First, we have the ‘Digital’ version of the Volcano. It offers a brightly lit digital temperature display with big temperature control buttons located on the front that allow you to easily adjust the temperature. One of the best features of the Volcano Digit is the automatic shutoff timer. If the unit is on for more than 30 minutes and not being used, it will turn off your unit. The reason it does this is to save energy and this also helps to preserve the longevity of the Volcano’s heating element.

Personally, I have the classic and leave it running for the majority of the day. I cannot recommend doing this, because it will supposedly decrease the life of the unit, but I’ve had mine for 4 years and it’s still working flawlessly, which is a testament to the build quality and beefiness of this unit.  The downside to the digital version is they boosted the price tag of the unit by $120 compared to the classic.

The next available version is the “Classic”. The Volcano Classic is the analog version. It’s exactly the same as the “digit” minus the digital display and auto shut off timer. Like I mentioned above it will also save you $120. You don’t get the digital temperature display but the turn dial is still incredibly easy to use and allows you to set the temperature of the unit ranging from one to nine. 1 is the lowest temperature setting and 9 being the highest. My favorite way to vape with the classic is to start the first few bags on 5 and end the last one on level 7.

Warranty Info: The Volcano Classic, Volcano Digit (digital), Easy Valve and Solid Valve filling chambers are covered for three years from defects in materials and workmanship.

From Storz and Bickel: “Company warrants solely to the original purchaser of the Products that for the warranty period” (36 months), “the Products will be free from defects in materials and workmanship under normal use,…

Volcano Vaporizer Review Summary

Overall, if you’re in the market for a desktop vaporizer with a proven name and track record, the Volcano is your best bet. Whether you choose the Solid Valve or the Easy Valve is completely up to you.

I can’t say that I would recommend going for the “Digital” version just because it’s going to run you an extra $120, but if you like the added shut off timer feature and the easy to read digital temperature display then, by all means, go for it.

You can click here to buy the Volcano from my recommended authorized retailer.

If you are still looking for a quality desktop vape, but cannot justify the volcano price, I recommend looking at the Extreme Q review which is a “multi-use” desktop vaporizer.

It offers both a balloon and whip option. I don’t feel like it offers anywhere near the same vapor quality as the Volcano and it has a few design flaws but it is less expensive.

If you think you might want a portable vaporizer instead of a desktop, check out my Mighty vaporizer review. The Mighty is also made by Storz and Bickel and a lot of people joking call it the portable Volcano because of the rock-solid performance and consistency which portables are not generally known for.

Video Transcript:

Hey guys Buzz here with vaporizerwizard.com. Today I’ll be going over the Volcano Vaporizer. Now the Volcano is a desktop convection vaporizer and it’s made in Germany by a company called Storz and Bickle. It works by inflating balloons like this through a forced air system on top of this chamber.

Now it also comes in a couple different styles. You get to choose between the classic, which is this one right here. It has the turn dial temperature adjustment in front. Or you can choose the “digit” which has a big digital temperature display located on the front right here and easy buttons to adjust the temperature.

Now you also get to choose between the solid valve attachment and the easy valve attachment. I have the solid valve right here and I’ll get more into this later on in the video and explain the differences between both options.

In my opinion the volcano is the most efficient and easiest way to vape your herbs, oils and concentrates. I own plenty of desktop and portable vaporizers and I always find myself coming back to the Volcano. This is currently my favorite and the highest rated vaporizer of all portable and desktop units.

At the time of this video, the volcano will run you $539 for the classic and $669.00 for the “digit”. You can click the links below in the about section to get the current price and a full review on my website. Now this does seem like a steep price for a vaporizer but I truly believe it’s worth every penny. Overall, the taste, vapor quality and design of this vaporizer are hands down the best on the market.

So first I’ll talk about the features and how to use the volcano. I’ll do a quick vape session, go over the pro’s and con’s, and then suggest the best place to pick one up.
Ok so here is the Volcano Vaporizer. Like I mentioned, in the beginning, there are two types of models to choose from. The model you see here is the Classic which has an rotary turn dial temperature adjustment ranging from level 1 which is 266°F to level 9 which is 446°F. The digital version of the volcano is called the “digit” and has a digital interface to adjust the temperature. The main differences between the two are the price, the digit will run you an extra $130, and it also comes with an automatic shutoff feature. Both models are almost identical minus the front interface. Which model you choose is completely up to you. I decided to get the classic to save myself the $130.

You also get to choose between the Solid Valve which you see here and the Easy Valve. The solid valve allows you to create custom balloon sizes, the chamber and mouthpiece are higher quality, and the replacement balloons will run you about $5-10 per year. In order to use the solid valve, you just fill up the balloon, attach the mouthpiece and press in to release the vapor. The easy valve has two balloon size options and doesn’t require any cleaning. However, the replacement balloons will run you about $25-50 a year. I decided to go with the Solid Valve attachment to save on overall costs and I like to create my own balloon sizes. Here is the filling chamber for the solid valve attachment. This will hold the herbs and sit on top of the Volcano. When using any vaporizer, you want to make sure and grind up your herbs pretty fine and layer the bottom of the chamber. One of the reasons the volcano has such great vapor quality and density is because of the large surface area that is heated. It allows the herbs to be vaped evenly and consistently. For best results, I do recommend stirring up your herbs a little bit after a couple balloons.

One of the downfalls to the Volcano is the amount of time it takes to heat up. The average heat up time is around 3 minutes. Sometimes, what I like to do is just leave my volcano turned on. So this way, when I want to use it, I just throw on the chamber and fill a balloon. I’ve had mine for over 4 years and no problems with leaving it on. I can’t say that I recommend doing this and the manufacturer will also advise against this, but I’m too impatient to wait for it to heat up. I guess the best way to deal with the heat up time would be to plug it in and begin heating before you grind your herbs. As you can see it took about 2 minutes and 54 seconds to heat up.

In order to use the volcano, you’re going to grind up your herbs and pack a layer at the bottom of the filling chamber. The metal piece with the screen is the filling chamber insert. The insert helps secure the herbs in the chamber because the fan blows up to fill the bag. It also helps get a consistent vape of the herbs in the chamber. Once the chamber is loaded, just place the insert back in and press down slightly to compress the herbs. The next step is to place the chamber on the heating element. It’s not completely secured but it does have an exact fit. You will know if it’s off center. You’ll then take the solid valve attachment without the mouthpiece and attach it to the filling chamber. It will snap into place and secure to the top of the chamber. The balloons are made without softeners which allow them to remain erect even when not filled. So you can position the balloon upwards and it will fill up without falling to the side.

To begin filling the balloon, you will flip the green switch which will turn on the fan. I’ve found the typical fill times for the volcano range from 30-45 seconds depending on your balloon size. One complaint some people have with the volcano is the amount of sound it makes while filling the balloon. On the flip side, the fan is louder because it fills balloons faster than other desktop models. The balloon in this video is a bit bigger and took a little more time to fill up. Once the balloon is full, remove the filling chamber from the heating element. Press down on both sides of the solid valve attachment and it will release from the filling chamber. From here you will attach the mouthpiece to the valve and press in to release the vapor from the balloon.

So now we’ll jump into a vape session with the Volcano. First off, you’ll notice the balloon in this video is a bit smaller. This is the size balloon I prefer to use when it’s just me. I recommend starting your first balloon at level 5. After the first couple balloons, you can increase to level 6 or 7. Here I started off at level 6 to show the kind of vapor quality you can expect.

Once the balloon is full, flip the green button down to turn off the fan and then remove the filling chamber from the heating element. Detach the valve and connect the mouthpiece.
The Volcano’s vapor density, quality and unique design really set this desktop unit apart from all others. It’s extremely easy to use, easy to maintain and built to last. The volcano is definitely not a portable unit weighing in at 3.5 lbs but if you do manage to bring it to a friend’s house, or have friends over at your place, the volcano is definitely the life of the party. The solid valve attachment design is built extremely well and can take a beating. I normally just launch the balloon across the room to my friends and I never have to worry about it breaking. Also, the solid valve volcano balloons are super versatile because they allow you to create sizes for any type of smoking session. You can make bigger balloons for sessions with friends that get about 5-7 hits per balloon or build a 10 foot balloon that will get you 15+ hits. You can also create a smaller balloon for single smoke sessions while relaxing at home.

In this vape session you will notice a little bit of vapor escaping from the chamber due to over-filling the balloon a bit. It’s not that big of a deal but you can eliminate the vapor from escaping by not letting the balloon get too full. You can also see the orange light lit up between the red power switch and the green fan switch. The orange light lets you know when the heating element is on and showing that the unit is currently heating up. Once the desired temperature level has been reached, the orange light will shut off. As always, I recommend removing the chamber from the heating element after the balloon is full to help conserve your herbs. I also recommend removing the metal filling chamber insert after a couple balloons to stir up your herbs. This will make sure that you are getting a consistent vape of all your herbs and ensure the best vapor taste and quality. Once your session is complete, you can either turn off the Volcano or just leave it on if you’ll be back shortly.

Ok so now I’ll talk about the pro’s and cons. First of all, the volcano has the best vapor quality, vapor density and taste of any vaporizer currently on the market. Other units provide different features but nothing compares to the Volcano. The overall build quality is also the best on the market. The volcano has no finicky parts or design flaws. It’s extremely easy to use whether you get the “classic” or the “digit” and you essentially never have to clean the volcano if you go with the easy valve set up.

Now the con’s are the cost. At $539, it is currently one of the most expensive vaporizers on the market. But as I mentioned in my previous videos, in this market, you definitely get what you pay for. The size of the Volcano is by no means discreet and it is not a portable unit. It’s meant for home use only. The time in which it takes for the volcano to heat up could also be considered a con but it’s not a deal breaker. Also, the noise when filling balloons is louder than its competitors but as you saw earlier in the video, it fills up balloons in a fraction of the time.

Volcano Vaporizer Review

The Volcano is currently my highest rated desktop vaporizer and in my opinion it still holds the title for the best desktop vaporizer. It's still going strong over the course of five years and produces the best vapor quality of any vaporizer I've tried.

    How exactly do you do customizable bag sizes?

    • Buzz Danklin says: December 15, 2014 at 5:54 pm

      I’ll make a video here in the next couple days and email you the link.

  • abc says: December 13, 2014 at 12:59 am

    you cut the plastic to the length you want

  • Lobster says: January 13, 2015 at 11:37 am

    Thanks for your amazing reviews! Would you say the volcano produces the best vapor compared to the Crafty and Mighty? I’m used to huge bong rips bit so I’d like a vape that will compete. Thanks again!

    • Buzz Danklin says: January 13, 2015 at 3:16 pm

      I would say the density and the taste are better with the Volcano. The Volcano has a huge surface area that is heated and that helps evenly heat the herbs while maximizing efficiency.

      The Volcano is definitely the perfect vaporizer for someone looking to compete with huge rips from bongs, steamrollers, etc… The Volcano completely wrecks me when I want it too and can be the best tasting if I want that as well.

      • Lobster says: January 22, 2015 at 6:26 pm

        Thanks for the info— today I ordered the classic with solid valves via your link. It’s arriving tomorrow! Thanks again!

    • Jamin says: January 22, 2017 at 1:44 am

      Go with the Mighty. I’ve gone through two craftys in less than two years.

  • METAL says: February 1, 2015 at 4:22 am

    I am using a friends solid valve. I watched your video on how to use it.
    I read that another person wants the same Bong Hits from a Volcano.
    How do i do that?
    I am trying to work it out.
    I am using the temp between 5.5 – 6.
    I have been using a bong for 20+ years and ca2nt seem to find that same hit from a Volcano.
    Any hints you can tell me.

    • Buzz Danklin says: February 18, 2015 at 1:17 pm

      I don’t feel like it will be the same completely. You can turn up the temp a bit and produce a bit thicker clouds but it’s nothing like a bong hit. If you are looking for a bong like desktop vaporizer then you should check out the CloudEVO by VapeXhale. They sent me one about a month back and this thing rips! Bit pricey though.

  • Glass says: February 8, 2015 at 3:10 pm

    Thanks for the great reviews! I’m going to grab a volcano from your link as soon as I get my tax refund. I’ve wanted one for years and it’s about time, man! I was wondering if you could tell me a little about the chamber difference between the two valve types?

    • Buzz Danklin says: February 25, 2015 at 6:09 pm

      The solid valve has a bit heavier duty bowl, and a nicer mouthpiece, and you get to chose your own bag sizes from 10ft rolls. However you need to replace the bags, and take it apart and clean it occasionally. I personally don’t mind cleaning it so I prefer the solid valve. With the easy valve you get pre-made balloons, so it has less maintanence. Another difference is the size of the bowls, Solid Valve – 4.5cm³ (~1.35g) Easy Valve: 6.5cm³ (~1.85g)

  • Taylor Walker says: March 16, 2015 at 10:30 pm

    Great marijuana vaporizer review!

  • Maxx says: May 12, 2015 at 8:31 am

    hallo!! great vape review website!
    how many baloons do you make with one bowl?

    • Buzz Danklin says: May 12, 2015 at 10:39 pm

      Hi again Maxx!! :) It’s so sporadic. Sometimes I will pack a bowl and hit it on the lower temps 2-4 times. Like temps 4-5-6 in the morning. Other times I’ll pack .25 grams and kill it all in one bowl on temp 9 with a big balloon. I switch it up a lot. It also depends a lot on the type of herb that I have at the time.

  • Datvapinfella says: June 24, 2015 at 9:01 am

    Spoken like a true volcano enthusiast! Couldn’t agree more with you. Lower numbers are great for taste and a fresh bowl/full bag on number 9 is sure to wreck you as good as any bong rip I’ve had!

  • Dean says: July 16, 2015 at 3:38 am

    Hi! Great reviews!

    I’m thinking on buying the Crafty after watchin one of your reviews!

    I already have a volcano for a year..stopped smokin and manage only to vape! Great choice…

    I was chekin the water filters tutorials you did about the crafty and mighty, could you do the same with the volcano or explain what’s the better way to connect the volcano to water pipe filtration????


    • Buzz Danklin says: July 18, 2015 at 9:33 pm

      Hey Dean! Thanks man, I use the same bubblers for the Volcano. Just press the mouthpiece from the bag into the glass and it seals pretty much perfectly. I definitely recommend it and I definitely recommend picking it up from sunshine store. Let me know how it goes and thanks for checking out my site. Let me know if you have any questions. I prefer the D020-D model personally but they are both good.

  • Dean says: July 20, 2015 at 5:26 am

    Thanks for the reply!

    I already purchased the D020-D from the sunshine store, I will tell you my opinion when I use it!

  • Potamotrygorgeous says: July 29, 2015 at 7:18 am

    Hi again Buzz!

    We are almost ready to make our purchase.. and we laid our eyes on the Volcano.
    As we are new to this whole vap-world, we hoped you could tell us something more about the Volcano:

    1. is it necessary to completely fill the bag with vape?
    2. we read that you ‘must’ empty the bag within a couple of minutes, otherwise there will be condensation on the insides, is that true? Is that a problem?
    3. how do you inhale the vape? Just breathe in what’s inside the bag and breath out in the room?
    4. the bags come with an automatic closer, is that correct? Or do you have to keep the bag closed with your fingers? Or do you empty it in one inhale?
    5. what do you think about the quality of the grinder that comes along with the volcano?
    6. alhough we know it’s not quite legal perhaps in the US, this question is just a hypothetical one, is it possible to vape hasj with the volcano (as it is more sticky..)

    Thanks again, mate, for answering so many questions people have :)

    • Buzz Danklin says: July 29, 2015 at 12:21 pm

      1. No, you can fill the bag with any amount of vapor that you want and you can make the bag as big or as little as you want if you go with the Solid Valve set up.

      2. The vapor in the bag should be removed within a reasonable time. I suggest quicker than five minutes because yes, you will get some condensation build up in the bag if you don’t empty it. You can just buy some extra bags and make new ones if you start to notice it. It will happen over time pretty much no matter what but the bags are easy to make and swap out. It really depends on how much you plan on using the Volcano. I use mine probably 10 times a day, every day and have been for the last god I dont know how long lol. Since I got out of the Marines. I clean it probably once a week and change the bag once every two weeks. Anyways, I just hit the volcano and im rambling so lets move on.

      3. The vapor will fill up in the bag and you press your lips against the mouthpiece and push in. This will release the stop and open up the vapor path for you to breath in. You can take a huge quick rip or a slow steady 10 second draw if you want. There is literally zero draw resistance so you decide on how much or how little vapor you want. When you are finished, just take your lips off the mouthpiece and it will close the bag back up. Just pass it on to the next person or let out your hit into the room and take another.

      4. Seals completely until you press your lips against the mouthpiece. It will seal back up when you let off.

      5. Not the best quality but it will do the job. I recommend a Santa Cruz Shredder or a Space Case. I just don’t like plastic because I feel like it could always just chip off and fall into your herbs. :(

      6. No for sure but it does come with a concentrate pad so yes I believe you could. Don’t quote me on that though.

      No problem, keep me up to date with what you decide to get. Thanks for checking out the site again.

      • Edred says: October 11, 2015 at 2:41 am

        Rah fellow Marine and volcano owner lol. Just wanted to confirm that you that indeed, you can vaporize/dab concentrates and the like; been doing that all day actually. Just put it on the brillo pad looking thing; no need to run it on or anything special. It just melts and spreads through out it and you can get plenty of bags off of very little of it. I’m on my 7th one before shutting it down; I can probably get a few more tomorrow lol.

        • Buzz Danklin says: October 19, 2015 at 1:48 am

          Semper Gumpy brother! Still using my Volcano daily :) Take care man and thanks for the heads up.

      • Edred says: October 11, 2015 at 2:47 am

        Oh crap, my bad on the volcano owner part, I didn’t realize you were the owner of the business. (I had stumbled upon the comment section randomly through goggle. I am incredibly high)

      • Clive says: August 5, 2018 at 6:01 am

        These Q&A all very useful, thanks!
        On Q5 above, the grinder issue…is it ok to just place leaves/whatever into the unit and go ahead with the procedure…or must the stuff be shredded first?

        • Buzz Danklin says: August 21, 2018 at 1:23 pm

          You get a more even vape of the herbs if they are ground but you don’t have to. Just make sure halfway through your session or after a couple bowls that you break down the herb a bit to help get everything.

      • Jenny Block says: December 25, 2018 at 7:36 pm

        Chip of and fall in? Hmm! That’s a bit extreme or totally paranoid I’d say…. Just saying especially for someone who does it as much as you do!

        • Buzz Danklin says: June 17, 2019 at 7:14 am

          You are right, it is almost surely me just being totally paranoid. I have yet to see one of the S&B plastic grinder chip or break in any way, however I have seen it happen to other branded plastic grinders. So at this point, I just use a high quality grinder I KNOW I can trust completely

  • Steve says: August 17, 2015 at 11:33 am

    Hi Buzz
    I got my Volcano a week ago and it is great. The taste from the bag far surpasses anything I’ve gotten from various portables including the Firefly, Crafty, and Pax. There is literally no comparison, even the 4th bag beats the first vape from a portable. I notice it dosen’t take much herb to deliver 3 to 4 sessions, this using a turkey bag which is I believe about 1 1/2 times larger than the stock bag. I put in a medium sized pinch which would pretty much fill a Crafty but just covers the screen in the Volc. Starting on 350, then 360, 370 and finally 380 seems to do the trick quite well. Well worth the investment.

  • Vic Groves says: December 15, 2015 at 10:57 am

    I’m right on the edge of buying a volcano, but I have one concern. Wraps, pipes, and bongs, all my old favorites, now rip hell out of my throat. One of the pitfalls of being 79. :) Anyway, I’m hoping to get feedback from people who might have the same problem, and can address how, if at all, the volcano relieves the problem. Thank you.

    • Buzz Danklin says: December 15, 2015 at 12:22 pm

      Vaporizers are definitely easier on my throat, and depending on how easily irritated your throat is, you can adjust the temperature and load size to get higher or lower density vapor in your bags. If you go with the solid valve, you will be able to press your Volcano bag right up to your existing water pipes to moisturize and cool the vapor even further.

      • Vic Groves says: December 15, 2015 at 2:36 pm

        Thanks for your fast reply and information. I had to think a minute about, ” you will be able to press your Volcano bag right up to your existing water pipes to moisturize and cool the vapor even further”… but it clicked. Finally. That kind of made up my mind over digital vs standard. Thanx again.
        While I’m at it…. Semper High….. I mean Semper Fi.

      • Stan says: January 8, 2018 at 6:57 am

        I don’t understand what you mean and ho you do it: “, you will be able to press your Volcano bag right up to your existing water pipes to moisturize and cool the vapor even further.”


    • Shari says: March 24, 2016 at 12:28 am

      I’m 72 and have been using a volcano about six months now and still use the others at times but the only thing that doesn’t rip my throat is the Vplocano!

  • Vic Groves says: December 15, 2015 at 1:50 pm

    Thanks for your fast reply and the info you provided. I really appreciate it. I had to think about the “press the bag right up to the water pipe” part, but it clicked after a few seconds. Semper High… I mean Semper Fi. :)

  • Abdessamad says: April 12, 2016 at 7:06 pm

    Good Review! Keep going :)

    • Buzz Danklin says: April 13, 2016 at 10:12 pm

      Thank you, I appreciate the kind words

      • silat says: May 5, 2016 at 8:58 pm

        Buzz just to be clear:)
        Can I load a bowl, fill the balloon as far as I want and turn off the fan and inhale:) then pick up later and finish heating the remaining product? Does it stop cooking when the fan is not blowing the hot air?
        What are the downsides of using a really small bag size? Is there any point in using very small bags?
        Semper Fi from an old Army draftee:)

        • Buzz Danklin says: May 8, 2016 at 7:35 pm

          You can definitely split a bowl into multiple sessions, in fact I do that every day. I take the bowl off of the top of the Volcano after I finish the bag and set it to the side, this way it does not keep cooking in between bags. The downsides to small bags would be having to fill them more often since they are smaller, otherwise I have had no problem running very small bags or very large ones. Thank you for your service!

          • silat says: May 10, 2016 at 2:50 pm

            Buzz has anyone checked the actual temp at the bowl compared to the read out on the digital?
            I cannot find any info on that.

            I have not done this personally, but I do know they are calibrated that way in the shop.

    How many balloons can you fill with one filling of the herb chamber? I have the Digit and I have the E-Z Valve set up. I also have the pre-made bags. I get about 3 balloons through and then I replace my herb. After seeing your video and reading the text above, I’m thinking that I may be disposing of it too soon. Your thoughts? How can I tell when it is time? Oh, by the way, my vaping temp is 378F

      I add in a little bit of herb, fill a bag. Add in a little more fill a bag. add a little more, fill a bag. Until like the 4th time and then I’ll just run it all without adding any more. Your technique is fine too. 3 bags off one chamber is a pretty decent results. I also save my already vaped bud and use it to make butter, cookies, mac and cheese, etc… So even if you don’t get all of the active ingredients, the cookies, butter, etc will just be a little more potent.

      I also temp step. So say you start out at 378F, make the next bag 390 and then next one 400/410. The higher you go the more ingredients you release. Hopefully I didn’t confuse you more. Let me know if you have any questions.

    Hi, I think your website might be having browser compatibility issues.

    When I look at your blog site in Chrome, it looks fine but when opening in Internet
    Explorer, it has some overlapping. I just wanted to
    give you a quick heads up! Other then that, excellent blog!

      Thank you! I’ll take a look at that!

    I have used my Volcanoes (yes, I have two-one in living room, other in bedroom) every day for over ten years. They are always on, ready to go and the best thing since the bread man got a slicing machine. My husband has one bag every night before bed for his Restless Leg Syndrome, and I burn bags all day every day for chronic pain, arthritis and appetite issues. I don’t know how many I suck down in a day, never counted; it’s over a dozen easily-maybe two dozen if I’m hurting bad. I buy oven bags from Amazon in a box of 100 and change my bag every few days. Hubby’s bag only once or twice a month with his much lighter usage. We have separate kinds of medicine and separate bags so I can keep track of when they were last changed/cleaned.

    The Volcano’s parts and pieces do have to be cleaned but it became a meditation exercise and I find it therapeutic and settling to take apart the bag and mouthpiece and valve section and swab them with alcohol on Q-tips til they are clean. Allowing them to air dry and then carbureting well alleviates the alcohol taste after a few hits. I suppose rinsing them in water would as well, but that would mean getting up and going to the kitchen-mmm, no. I’d rather deal with the aftertaste.

    I heartily recommend the Volcano-I take it in the car, set it on the floor at my feet and plug it into an inverter. Car doesn’t smell like burnt weed and I am comfortable for much longer. It’s the best vaporizer I’ve ever used and anyone who comes by and tries it agrees with me.
