The 2022 Volcano Hybrid Vaporizer Review: All You Need To Know - High Yields (2022)

The Volcano by Storz & Bickel is one of the most iconic vaporizers of all time. This tabletop vaporizer, with its volcano-shaped base and plastic vapor plume, went viral before going viral was a thing.

After infiltrating stoner culture in the late ’90s and early 2000s, it has remained in the soft folds of our collective nostalgia, frozen in the ashes of the past, just like the Tamagotchi, the low-rise jean, and the ancient city of Pompeii.

That is, until the respected vape gods at Storz & Bickel delivered us the Volcano Hybrid, a sleek, smart, and future forward upgrade that’s getting the cannabis industry erupting with excitement once more.

By toning down the hokey-ness of the original design — without making the device too serious — and adding intuitive technological controls, the Volcano Hybrid Vaporizer feels like a grown-up version of the classic model.

Just as the past twenty years saw us mature and make it to the other side smarter, cooler, and (much) better looking, so it did our trusty old friend. Here’s everything you need to know about the Volcano Hybrid.


What is The Volcano Hybrid Vaporizer?

The 2022 Volcano Hybrid Vaporizer Review: All You Need To Know - High Yields (1)

The Volcano Hybrid is a flower vaporizing system with a volcano-shaped base that uses convection heat to vaporize ground material. In the original design, a large plastic easy-valve balloon bag was filled with vapor before being inhaled and passed around.

While the volcano vaporizer obviously does this as well, it also includes a tube kit to take the silliness of the giant vapor bag out of the equation, letting you hit it like a normal vaping system.

Aside from technological upgrades like LED controls, app capability and other trimmings that take it from the analog age to our current digital era, the addition of the tube kit is the biggest change to the overall aesthetic and functionality of the device.

It elevates the Volcano experience, and this elevation particularly lends itself to a Storz & Bickel device, as they produce some of the highest quality vaporizers on the market that are specifically designed for everyday use.

Why Choose The Volcano?

Of all the vaporizers on the market, what makes The Volcano such a unique and valuable item? Well, for starters, there’s nothing else like it! Whether you’re intending to use it all on your own or in a group setting, this weed volcano allows for a smooth and enjoyable experience: it’s something out of a stoner’s wild dream!

Because of the way this model vaporizes your flower or concentrates, you can consume a large amount of your product and reap its benefits in a really efficient way. The Volcano ensures that you can get the best high possible without wasting any product.

If you have a place with your friends, you could always match on a joint or bowl, but wouldn’t pooling your stashes for a weed volcano be so much nicer?

The Volcano may have a relatively high price point, but given how reliable and durable the technology is, you’ll get more than your moneys worth. Once you have a Volcano on hand, your stoner needs will be set for life!


What can you do with the Volcano Hybrid?

The Volcano Hybrid is compatible with finely ground flower, and also contains a drip pad for use with concentrates. Most users tend to gravitate towards dry herb with this product, but again, it is also capable of vaporizing all your favorite concentrates and cannabis oils.

How to use the Volcano Hybrid Vaporizer

Now that you’re familiar with the Volcano Hybrid, how does it work?

  • Volcanic base (hot air generator)
  • Drop by drop
  • Normal screen setting
  • Lightweight valve ball with point
  • Set of tubes
  • Filling chamber with lid

Assembly of the tube and balloon elements

  1. Plug in the Volcano base making sure you put the Volcano on a sturdy, level surface near an outlet.
  2. Remove the filling chamber cap. Unscrew the top from the bottom.
  3. Grind flower. Make sure the flower is ground completely so the hot air has as little surface area to vaporize when the air moves through as possible.
  4. Fill the chamber with the ground flower, then screw on the filing chamber cap. Do not fill too tightly, it should be loose enough for air to pass through easily, not completely packed.
  5. Attach tube kit or balloon to the top of the filling chamber.

How to use the tube kit

  1. Tap the heat button to turn on.
  2. Choose temperature using the (+) and (-) buttons.
  3. Preheat for 5 seconds — it will vibrate when ready.
  4. Tap the air button.
  5. Inhale from tube mouthpiece.

How to use a balloon

  1. Tap the heat button to turn on.
  2. Choose temperature using the (+) and (-) buttons.
  3. Preheat for 5 seconds — will vibrate when ready.
  4. Tap the air button.
  5. Stay conscious of vapor density in the balloon.
  6. It’s important that the balloon does not become too full of vapor, if it’s getting taught to the touch it’s time to stop filling.
  7. Remove the full balloon unit. Never leave the filling chamber on the Volcano — beware, as this is a very hot surface.
  8. Attach the mouthpiece to the valve on the balloon.
  9. Inhale — passing optional

Temperature controls

The Volcano Hybrid arrives set to 356°F, which is a great place to start since the ideal temperature to vaporize ground flower is around 350°F. While it’s true that the higher the vaporization temperature, the faster the person vaporizing may experience their high, it kind of negates the entire point of vaping in the first place.

Not only do you sacrifice important factors like flavor and vapor smoothness, it’s easy to scorch the flower and eviscerate all the terpenes this method of intake is designed to preserve. Note that when using the tube, it’s a way more intense delivery method than the balloon.

It’s recommended that you keep the temperature around 350°F to ensure the best-quality vapor and overall experience with the volcano vaporizor. If you dare to increase the heat, beware that you may be sacrificing flavor, but you’ll probably be hit even harder than your friends who kept the settings lower!

Storz & Bickel App

If you have an Android, the Storz & Bickel App is pretty cool. You can control your Volcano Hybrid, get firmware updates, adjust auto shutoff, create workflows, and personalize settings.

However, if you don’t have an Android 6 or above, there is a web version users can access. The developers of this product went above and beyond: how many vaporizers out there are also smart devices?

Is the Volcano Hybrid worth it?

The appeal of the Volcano Hybrid is that it’s a really fun and well-executed upgrade of one of stoner culture’s favorite vaporizers: who would say no to a weed volcano?

While it has hugely improved tech-wise, it’s still a really simple and straight-forward device, making it great for any level of user from novice to expert. The improvement on the analog version made it better and more current without all the unnecessary tech-y add ons.

With the addition of the tube, the Volcano ascends from the hazy den of your parent’s house to the coffee table of your very chic and adult apartment. Potent, discreet, and sexy, the Volcano Hybrid’s all grown up.


Additional Accessories

Whether you are looking to upgrade your Volcano experience or replace parts due to normal wear and tear, there’s a wide supply of add-ons and replacement parts to choose from.

The great thing about the Volcano is that it’s not cheaply made or intended to break down over time, like many products out there: you just need to maintenance a couple parts to keep your model running smoothly!

To prevent pollination from ruining your yield, identifying the sex of your cannabis plants is essential. Find out how to spot male and hermie marijuana plants.

Short of deep genetic investigation, there are no signs to indicate the sex of a cannabis plant earlier than the pre-flowering stage.. So to find these, you’ll once again check for signs of male pollen sac development at the nodes.. With these plants, male stamens develop on the female flowers, and so you’ll be well into the flowering stage by the time you identify them.. For males, true hermaphrodites, and females, the reproductive organs begin developing at the nodes.. If you want to breed your own cannabis , select the best-looking males and allow them to pollinate the females, and then grow new plants from the resulting seeds.

What is nutrient lockout in cannabis? It's a problem most growers will encounter at some point. Learn to recognise, solve, and prevent it with Zamnesia.

Nutrient lockout is a common problem among growers, but fixing it requires some basic knowledge.. Less-experienced growers may not recognise nutrient lockout for what it is, making the problem worse by doing the opposite of what's needed to bring their plants back to good health.. Learn about nutrient lockout, how to fix it, and how to avoid it!. Nutrient lockout is among the most common problems cannabis growers experience, and it is far more problematic than a nutrient deficiency .. When cannabis plants experience nutrient lockout, they cannot take in the required nutrients to grow properly.. What is important to know about a typical nutrient lockout scenario is that all the required nutrients are present, but the plant simply cannot take them in.. Sometimes, the requirement to feed your marijuana plants heavily is the reason for nutrient lockout.. However, you can reduce your plant’s nutrient requirements by performing some heavy pruning .. Non-organic nutrient solutions and fertilisers contain minerals, including salt, that will build up over time, changing your growing medium’s pH level and possibly leading to nutrient lockout.. As always, prevention is the best cure, so regularly monitoring the pH level of your soil and ensuring it stays in a comfortable range is a great way to avoid nutrient lockout.

The smell of cannabis is instantly recognisable by most people. But did you know there are low-odour strains that can avoid this problem? Find out more!

Here are 10 cannabis strains found right here at Zamnesia that maintain a discreet odour during both growing and smoking.. Because it was specifically bred for indoor growing, this strain also flowers relatively quickly and is quite resilient to common indoor threats.. Like Northern Lights, its indica genetics make it much easier to grow indoors than most other strains.. Within 9 weeks of flowering time, this strain can be expected to produce up to 600g/m² indoors.. This sweet and fruity indica-dominant strain has been optimised for indoor growing.. Containing 13% THC, Quick One’s effect is stoney but easily manageable, making it a great beginner strain to grow and smoke.. Of course, there are times when growers are dead-set on growing a specific strain, regardless of its pungent odour.
