Herbal Vaporization

Vaporization, or volatilization is a process which releases the essential, active elements of a substance without burning it. Vaporization implements a cutting-edge convection technology which releases just enough heat and air to discharge these vital elements but not enough heat and air to actually combust the material. Anything which is traditionally smoked may also be vaporized, just as effectively or even more so, without the usual drawback of health risks.

Vaporization produces NO smoke, no tar and little or no other toxic elements. This is because, unlike combustion, vaporization does not induce substantial denaturing of the substance. When a substance is "denatured", its chemical make-up may change when catalyzed by, for example, a flame. New compounds are then created which were not inherent in the plant itself.

One of the greatest assets of vaporization technology is the very fact that vaporization does not substantially alter the compounds being vaporized and does not create any elements that were not originally present in the source material.

The Volcano Vaporizer, considered by far the best yet one of the more expensive vaporizers on the market, is a State-of-the-art medical grade device from Germany, tested by California NORML & MAPS, and found to eliminate over 110 chemicals, delivering 95% pure cannabinoids in vapor. Their findings showed a "substantial reduction (about 99%) in certain toxins in the vapor as compared to marijuana smoke." A unique collection system avoids loss by collecting vapor in a special balloon. "Smoke without smoking!"

"The revolutionary Volcano Vaporizer smoking cessation device is just as effective when used to vaporize "alternative" herbs as with commonly combusted material like tobacco, if not more so. In many cases, herbs represent a safe alternative to the dozens of harmful chemicals found in tobacco. There are hundreds of herbal alternatives that come from all over the world and are smoked for a variety of ailments and experiences by folks 'in the know.' These herbs may include chamomile, yerba santa, passion flower, ginseng, jasmine, absinthe/wormwood, blue lotus and damiana, among many others, and most can be easily purchased from any living room in the world via the Internet. For many centuries humans have utilized herbs for their curative properties, healthful benefits and as a means to attain a feeling of well-being or euphoria, from Tibet to Swaziland, from China to Chile, and perhaps no more so than right here in the United States."

"The primary requirement of a vaporizer is the capacity to maintain the temperature just above the point of vaporization in order to obtain an optimum level of both efficiency and flavor and the minimized production of harmful substances," said one of the U.S. importers of the Volcano. "The Volcano Vaporizer accomplishes this with surprising efficiency."
