Vaporizer Comparison: Volcano vs Vapir Air


When it comes to smoking marijuana, there are many different ways to go about it. One favorite of mine is hitting the vaporizer. If you haven’t used one before, they are much easier on the lungs and are very effective at getting you stoned. The magic is in the way they heat the weed. They don’t use open flame, opting instead for either a heating element or an electric heat gun. The heat gun method is gaining popularity since it is easier to control the temperature. Typical vaporizers burn the weed anywhere between 300 and 400 degrees which is high enough to burn the good stuff while leaving all the bad stuff behind. If you want details or specific information(since I’m not trying to claim to be a physical scientist), check out this article.

For comparison purposes, I will use the two types of vaporizers I have recently owned as reference. They are the Vapir One 5.0 and the Volcano Digital. Here are some videos showing how the two work:


Friend of the blog, Master Bong, shows us how he uses his Volcano:

And here’s another good video:

Vapir Air 5.0 Digital Vaporizer:

Here is a good demonstration:

And this is a basic walk through:

As someone who has used both of them, I can definitely say work well, with the most fundamental difference being how loud the fan on Vapir Air is. Additionally, the Volcano seems to produce a thicker vapor and appears to fill the bag faster. When you take into account the fact that the Volcano can cost up to four times as much as the Vapir Air, the gap between the two is greatly narrowed. So in summary, the Volcano is a great vaporizer and if budget is not a concern, it’s a superior product. If you are looking for something a little more reasonable, the Vapir Air 5.0 is a solid choice as well.

  1. Volcano is by far the best. Everyone bitches because it costs more money but the bottom line is you get what you pay for.

  2. Great review but you didn’t take into account the proven safety of the Volcano versus the assumed safety of the Vapir Air One. What I mean is that different vapes can heat your bud in many different ways and using many different materials like metals and plastics. One has to be careful to learn the specific details of the actual components of the vape they choose, especially as it relates to the air pathway. Vaporizers are the only way to enjoy your herb. Takeit from a heavy smoker of many years who now ONLY vapes and has done so exclusively for a year. I don’t have to tell you aout the health benefits because if you make the change you will see the in leaps and bounds, especially health wise. Smoking disgusts me and the high is crap comparatively, and I am talking about very dank bud. Just simply does not compare. Some people want t

  3. That is some inspirational stuff. Not in a million years knew that opinions could be this varied. Thanks in the interest of all the keenness to bid such considerate info here.

  4. i think it does ‘BURN’ it (vaporizers) but not TO A CRISP like SMOKING…

    like you can get burn a piece of toast in a stove without a fire or combustion

    maybe ‘toasting’ is the best word for describing the vaporizer effect on weed, either way, its definately safer……

  5. Nice review. I have a Vapir Air myself, and the only thing I don’t like about it is the noise. It’s about as loud as an electric razor.

    One nitpick on the review. I don’t think you should use the word burn when talking about vaporizers, because burn implies combustion, and that is exactly what vaporizers are designed to avoid.

  7. -I would challange ANY vaporizer with the new ZEPHYR ION.
    This unit is a few hundred dollars cheaper than the Volcano and is just as good if not better in my opinion…….I am a rep for the copmpany, but ONLY because I like and believe in the product. I don’t endorse many products. Just giving me a few one doesn’t do the job for me, but I have used and abused a ZEPHYR (going on 3 wks now) and I think it’s the best. Ask your local head shop or give me a call (313-999-0329) I am happy to sell you one for what you will find is the lowest advertised price of $360 plus S&H.

    HOPE to see you all at The 39th Annual Ann Arbor HASH BASH Saturday April 3rd at HIGH noon on the DIAG of The U of M.

  8. I was given a Vaporizer as a birthday gift What a nice gift to receive.
    I love the fact I can smoke in the house there is no smell at all. I dont use it as often as I should rolling a joint is still the preferred way.
