After 2 years of tinkering the volcano vaporizer was born and patented. Around that time Jurgen Bickel joined forces and that is when Storz & Bickel was formed. Years later in 2007 the Volcano vaporizer team pushed out the digital volcano vaporizer. The next to come was the Plenty vaporizer that is a handheld desktop unit. In 2014 the Storz and Bickel team launched the Mighty portable vaporizer and the Crafty portable vaporizer.
The volcano vaporizer is one of the most sought after vapes in the industry. When it comes to vaporizing, the volcano does it well. When making the volcano vaporizer Storz and Bickel implemented quality management systems and medical grade materials making the volcano vaporizer a medical device. As a patient of recreational user, the volcano is a solid vape unit. The Volcano vape uses convection heating which uses hot air instead of a hot surface to vaporizer the herbs. The heat system helps to deliver a smooth and flavor vapor every time.

The Volcano vaporizer can go a long time without a deep cleaning, just use your brush to keep it tidy. The Volcano was given a unique shape by Storz & Bickel, hence its name. It features a solid plastic base with an aluminum body.

The bag also makes the volcano party ready as the bag is removed from the Volcano vaporizer when consumed.

The Storz & Bickel guys give you two vapor path options with the Volcano vaporizer. The first is the solid valve and the other is the easy valve. The Easy Valve is a disposable valve attached to each balloon bag which is thrown out after the balloon bag is spent. The Solid Valve has a few more parts and requires more assembly, but lasts forever and saves you money in the long run.
