Out of all the newest technology for smoking cannabis, the Volcano Vaporizer is by far one of the most popular. Whether you are on the market for a new collection piece or are interested in learning about the inner workings of this particular device you have found yourself in the right place. Here we will give a review on a Volcano Vaporizer, show you where to buy one and explain how to use one too.

Volcano Vaporizer review

In order to understand what all the hype was about I sought out a used digital Volcano Vaporizer to try out. My first impression fresh from the box is that this is a device made for professionals and I even felt a little intimidated. It’s big and bulky with a bright display on the front that clearly tells you how hot it’s about to get. At first, I was going to dive in head first and try to figure it out but instead looked towards the user manual to decide where to start. Once I figured out how to heat it to the correct temperature and fill it with herb I was beginning to relax and feel a little more excited. The first thing I noticed was the wait to reach a good temperature. Three minutes isn’t that long, but it was just enough time for me to feel like I could have used another device by now.

Once it was ready to use, I installed the valve and mouthpiece and took a haul. I was absolutely speechless at the smoothness and taste this product managed. I had smoked the exact same bud for almost a week, and it was so much harsher in a joint. It did take a fair amount of time to warm up, but mere seconds was all it took to burn through a good half of a gram in only a couple of hits. That might not seem like a lot, but I quickly realized that it was worth it as the effects crept over me in a way they hadn’t in my entire week of using the same herb. My ultimate opinion on the Volcano Vaporizer is that it’s an excellent choice for anyone who has access to a plug and doesn’t need the extra feature of being mobile.

How to use a Volcano Vaporizer

No matter which type you use be it digital or manual the function is essentially the same.

Step 1 - Set the temperature of the Volcano Vaporizer according to the herb or concentrate you wish to use. This information can be found in the user manual.

Step 2 - One touch of the heat button will begin the process of warming the elements inside. It takes three minutes to reach a consistent temperature and be ready to use.

Step 3 - Prepare your cannabis product to be added in the easy valve filling chamber. Bud should always be ground before it is used.

Step 4 - Wait for the yellow ready button to light up and insert the easy valve filling chamber.

Step 5 - Attach the balloon to the easy valve by pressing it onto it. They will click together and create a seal.


Step 6 - Push the air button to fill the balloon chamber and once it is full turn it back off. Overfilling the balloon can make it explode so pay close attention.

Step 7 - Now you can remove the balloon from the easy valve and screw the mouthpiece onto it.

Step 8 - Inhale the vapor that is contained within the balloon by pressing on the mouthpiece. There is generally enough for two tokes and they can be taken on your own or shared. The smoke will not continue to release if you aren’t holding down the release on the mouthpiece. This allows you to have the option to breathe for a moment if you need to between hits.

Benefits of using a Volcano Vaporizer

The most significant advantage of using a Volcano Vaporizer comes from the temperature controls that allow you to select the best temperature to use for your particular substance. This ensures no residue is left behind and that the terpenes are kept completely in-tact while being made available for you to enjoy in a vapor form. The flavor and minimum waste along with premium quality vapor producing are the top selling points for this product. The VolcanoVaporizer is also a much healthier option when compared to other smoking or dabbing methods that can irritate the user’s lungs.

Drawbacks of using a Volcano Vaporizer

There are only a couple of downsides that I could find with this vaporizer. The first is that the balloons are pretty much disposable. Though they are meant to last for more than one use, it is normal to expect to pay an average of $40 per year on replacements. The second is a bit more obvious, as it’s the first thing most people will look at, and that is the price point. One of these babies sells for around $600, and even a used Volcano Vaporizer can cost anywhere from $100 - $300 making it unaffordable for some. The third and final con of this one is due to its need for electricity. A Volcano Vaporizer must always be plugged in to work, and it’s mobile or easy to travel with at all.  

Where to buy a Volcano Vaporizer

If you are shopping on a budget, then you may want to watch out for a Volcano Vaporizer sale. They can happen just about any time and can save you up to ⅓ of the total price if you are quick. A brand new one can be found at your local head shop or online by visiting a trusted retailer like Toronto Vaporizer. A used Volcano Vaporizer will be a little trickier to find, but not impossible. They can often be found on websites like Ebay, Kijiji, or Craigslist and even on some buy and sell pages across Facebook. Check your local listings for availability.
