With the variety of quality vaporizers available today, figuring out which one to purchase is about as difficult as trying to decide which strain to try next. Time and time again knowledgeable vaping enthusiasts always come back to the one that started it all- the Volcano. 15 years after its humble beginnings in Germany, the Volcano vaporizer is still a top-seller and remains perhaps the most popular vape of all time.
So what makes this spaceship-resembling desktop vaporizer such a timeless vaping accessory? Let’s take a look at 3 reasons why the Volcano is still a classic:
1. A history of innovation
In the year 1998, an innovative German named Markus Storz patented the now-famous valve balloon component and just two years later, the Volcano hit the market. One of the very first customers was a man named Jürgen Bickel who would later become partners with Storz to form Storz & Bickel- the creators of the modern Volcano.
Their secret to success is innovation. They could have sit on the success of their product and let it slowly fade into obscurity, but instead they are continually improving and modifying the core design to keep up with technology and demand for this incredibly successful pinnacle of vaporization.
2. It’s considered “the Bentley of vapes”
Many vaporizers have tried to mimic the quality, durability and performance of the Volcano, but few have experienced the success that it has achieved. The Volcano is one of those products where at first you can’t understand why it has such a high price tag, until you take one home and experience the splendor for yourself.
Many vape enthusiasts consider the Volcano to produce top-notch vapor that tastes better and stays cleaner than its competitors. When a product has been around for this long, they must be doing something right!
3. Bringing people together since 2000
Last but certainly not least on this list is the sociability factor of the Volcano. Don’t be surprised if you bust one of these bad boys out at a party or friendly get-together and see a crowd quickly start to gather. Even if you don’t partake, the Volcano is simply fascinating to watch as it heats up and fills its transparent bag full of high-quality vapor.
In many coffee shops in Amsterdam, knowing how to operate one of these is a great way to make new friends from all over the world. If you’re looking for a great alternative to smoking, it’s hard to beat the classic Volcano vaporizer from Storz & Bickel.
