If it weren’t for these 8 fine manufacturers of vaporizers and vape pens, who knows what the vaporizer market would look like?
Marijuana vaporizers have brought upon the biggest change to the way we consume cannabis since the glass bong. All around the world people who under normal circumstances would have never smoked from bongs are learning to appreciate cannabis. This is because of the vaporizer. A vaporizer is a device that uses heat to vaporize cannabis flower and cannabis concentrates in a way that allows us to feel all of the effects of THC and CBD, but none of the nasty side effects from smoking cannabis via combustion aka the “traditional” way.
Vaping cannabis has taken over the public consciousness and it shows. The variety of vapes that are available today are simply staggering. I still remember when the first desktop vaporizer came out on the market and what a refreshing change it was from smoking from a pipe. From the desktop came the portable vaporizer, and then the vape pen. Dab rigs allowed us to enjoy our concentrates in a way never thought possible. Thanks to vapes we can now enjoy our oils, dry herb, and waxes in an easy and convenient manner.
Vapes Rise in Prominence
Vaporizers for marijuana first came around in the 2000s with the invention of the desktop vaporizer. For a while there didn’t seem to be much of an existing market for them. Cannabis consumers preferred to go with what was familiar, and what was familiar at that time were bongs. I did not take my first hit from a Volcano until around 2008, when one of my friends procured one by lucky chance. To tell you the truth I was not all that impressed. It’s fortunate that the future of cannabis consumption was not based off of my first impression of a vape, because shortly after I formed my opinion, I watched tech stock in vaporizers erupt in real time.
Part of the evolution of the electronic vape is due in part to tobacco cigarettes, or in this case people’s desire to quit them. Around the early to mid 2000s society suddenly decided that we were done with tobacco smoke. With the rise in smoking cessation came the electronic cigarette. Suddenly, everyone wanted to switch to e-cigarettes.
With the rise in popularity of electronic cigarettes came the advancement of vape technology. Newer and more advanced heating systems were developed. This spread to the cannabis industry as US states began to legalize recreational marijuana. Portable dry herb vaporizers soon became a regular sight in the hands of cannabis connoisseurs. Soon Wall Street and the rest of the US Stock Market began to reflect the interest in vaping technology, as stock in vape companies soared. Thus, a billion dollar industry was born. Now, let’s look at some vape companies that have changed the market for good.
Storz & Bickel
Storz & Bickel, manufacturers of the first medical dry herb vape, which you might know as the Volcano, are often referred to as the pioneers of the medical marijuana vaporizer industry. German based Storz and Bickel boast the first factory in the world dedicated to the manufacture of “medical herbal vaporizers,” according to their website. The first Volcano was manufactured in 2000, almost a decade before vaping would become popular. Storz and Bickel continue to manufacture high quality desktop and portable vaporizers such as the Mighty, the Crafty, and the Plenty. Storz and Bickel are a sure sign that the future of vape technology lies somewhere in the European Union.
