Storz & Bickel Volcano Hybrid vs. Classic: A side-by-side comparison review
When the Volcano Classic came out in 2000, it revolutionised the world of desktop vaporizers. Many b...
Over the last year, the VapoShop team has participated in different fairs and festivals selling and showcasing all the latest and greatest vaporizer models. Lately, our presence evolved into a new concept for us, getting us closer to our past, present and future clients on the basis of what we love to do most: share the benefits of vaporizing. This is why we started to organize vape lounges.
"It is fun to see how there is one perfect vaporizer out there for everyone."
We have been up and down the continent, from the 4.20 Hemp Fest in Milano to Mary Jane in Berlin and again at the CLD festival in Amsterdam. These presented perfect occasions to put vaporizers into the hands of some sceptical newbies and to show off the hottest new releases to the nerds, who live and breathe… vapour. By introducing the lounge we broke from the virtual to the real world.
In the Vaposhop lounge, we invite our guests to touch and test with their own lungs the benefits of vaporizing. Our visitors and their curious friends possess very different levels of knowledge about vaporizing. Some have been star struck at a party when the American friend of their roommate pulled out their Firefly, others have heard of us through their well-informed cousin showing them Vaposhop’s Insta account, while others actually made enough research to give a run for the money to our most knowledgeable staff members.
Anyways, we meet many people, from all walks of life, and it is always a pleasure to introduce this revolutionary technology to someone who has never heard of it or to be amazed by our visitor's passion for their herb and their paraphernalia. By now we are able to introduce to our guests their perfect match when it comes to vaporizers.
For these guests, we take great pleasure putting a VapCap in their hands. VapCaps could easily be the best way to convince any smoker to take the leap into vaporizing. Many factors appeal to the almost-ex-smoker: the fact that you still use a lighter, the shape of the device similar to a herbal cigarette, and the use of the DynaStash is reminiscent of an ashtray. All of this is in perfect harmony with the comfortable routine of a smoker. Another really appealing aspect is that you can vape resin with it. After all not everyone has access to rosins and waxes. VapCap is definitely the one for the old-school at heart.
The second kind of guest is the one that hates tobacco, they are the people who try to live their lives as healthily as possible. They are also really conscious of their herbal consumption, knowing everything about strains, effects, cultivation climates, etc. Basically a hip nerd. This person would not be caught dead with a lighter, but cannot put their phone down. What do I recommend to these visitors? I let them try a Firefly or a PAX 3. These devices are techy and classy, the two most important values in life for this avant-garde user, who can control and define their whole experience through an app on their phone. These vaporizers are a match made in heaven for those who are only satisfied with the best.
The third guest type is the millennial herbalist, who has probably never touched a cigarette in their lives, has no intention to do so because it never occurred to his generation to smoke something with no effects. Instead, they appreciate and enjoy the fun gifts of mother nature. What they are looking for is something powerful, practical and precise, and of course, very cheap. Basically, they want it all. When I pull out the Boundless CFX, their jaw drops and eyes bulge. Full temperature control (of course they have read on the internet that this feature allows for the most exact extraction of plant material), double batteries (which means bigger hits), a slick black outer shell in easy hand-held shape, (which means discreet public use). These kids know what suits them like a glove when they see it.
The fourth kind of guest to ask us about vaporizing advise is the medical user. These are people that have approached herbal therapy because of ailments or diseases and a desire to move away from a strict pharmaceutical diet. They have no interest in recreational uses of herbs, so nothing flashy - they want something serious, reliable and long-lasting. They have heard about the Mighty, although they have never seen it, and were wondering if there is anything else we would recommend. No, there is not. The Mighty is it. There is no better and more solid vaporizer on the market for medicinal use. Everything from the shape, which takes people with little mobility into account, to German engineering, to the power of the full hits of vapour, knows no rivals.
Even though we are describing these characters with sweet superficiality, it is fun to see how there is one perfect vaporizer out there for everyone. It’s fun to be the matchmakers and to help people enjoy their herbs in a more healthy way.
Please come to visit us at the next fair in October, Cultiva in Vienna!
