Vaporization is the process of releasing aromatic compounds from herbs, spices, and essential oils without burning the material to produce smoke. The VOLCANO Vaporizer utilizes patented technology to gently heat materials and fill the valve balloon with a vapor (similar to steam). The vapor produced is very pure and does not contain any dangerous combustion by-products like carbon monoxide. The result is greater purity, better flavor, and superior effect!
Vapor vs. Smoke
Vaporization is the release of flavor and aroma from herbs, spices and essential oils by heating the material with hot air. Unlike smoking or burning, vaporization uses a very gentle heat, less than the combustion (burning) point (~450°F) [(~536°F/280°C)] [welche Temperatur ist richtig? 450°F oder 536°F?] of wood.
The result is a fine mist, similar to steam. Because there is no smoke created, there is no carbon monoxide or noxious byproducts generated. All that is released is the essential flavor and aroma of your plant material.
