Volcano Vaporizer by Storz & Bickel

The Volcano Vaporizer by Storz & Bickel is one of the most historic and legendary vapes of all time. Blowing big balloons of bountiful vapor, the Volcano is often the iconic status symbol of cannabis vaporists.

In 2019 Storz & Bickel added the Volcano Hybrid to their lineup of popular vaporizors. The Volcano Hybrid adds conduction to the heating method, making the vapor thicker and even more fulfilling.

The Volcano Hybrid can also be used with a whip and includes full digital temperature control and Bluetooth app integration.

Volcano Hybrid Vaporizor

Volcano Hybrid Vaporizer


Benefits: Amazing vapor quality. Thick, tasty clouds from a bag or with a whip. Like a Mighty on steroids!

Features: Hybrid convection/conduction vapor, available in stainless or onyx black, includes whip and bags, touch-screen, blue-tooth app integration

Volcano Classic

Classic Volcano


Benefits: Sharable bags of pure convection vapor

Troy’s Take: the classic still holds its own, but the Hybrid version does so much more, and it does it so much better. Spend the extra cash if you care about the vapor.

Volcano Classic vs Volcano Hybrid

Both Volcano vaporizers will look great on your desk and bring significant upgrades to your smoke sesh! But their vapor IS NOT THE SAME.

The Volcano Hybrid has two major improvements over the classic: Hybrid Heating and a Direct Draw Whip.

Volcano Hybrid adds conduction heating to the bowl which makes the Hybrid extract much more quickly than the Classic. The Hybrid also works with a whip – which means you can use the Hybrid without using the fan or blowing balloons. The whip can even connect directly to your favorite bong!

The Hybrid Volcano extracts faster, tastes better, gets me higher, and it’s more fun to use.

I’ve got a lot of love for the Volcano Hybrid and my Volcano Classic collects a lot of dust – but I’m a pretty hardcore vape user. If you’re a casual user and you’re looking for a fun desktop vape to share with your friends, the Classic Volcano won’t disappoint.

Volcano Replacement Bags

The Volcano Bag/Balloon has changed over the years and replacement bags are now simpler than ever

Replacement bags are sold as a set of 6 with pre-installed easy-valves. This will cost you about $50 every year or two, depending on how hard you vape your Volcano. These bags are compatible with both the Hybrid and Classic Volcano.

You can also buy the Volcano bag material as a tube. This is the same food-safe turkey bag material but in uncut and unattached form.

Not all Volcano valves can be re-used with new bags! One valve from every new Volcano replacement bag set will have a threaded ring – this is the Volcano valve that can be re-used with new bags.


Volcano Vaporizer on Amazon?

Officially, Amazon does not allow vaporizer sales. 

That doesn’t always stop sellers from selling Volcanos and Volcano Accessories though.

Amazon may be a great place to pick up replacement bags or other accessories, but I don’t recommend purchasing vaporizers on Amazon.

Amazon doesn’t regulate or police 3rd party sellers, which means counterfeit and fake Volcano and accessories could be sold as the real thing.

I advise sticking to official S&B resellers like Planet of the Vapes, Puffitup, or Vapor.com. These vape shops are known and trusted.

You can even buy directly from Storz & Bickel.
