Vaporizing is a popular method of consuming cannabis, and there are many different vaporizers on the market.
But one such vaporizer is LEAGUES ahead of the competition, both with respect to performance and overall quality.
I’m talking, of course, about the brilliant Volcano Hybrid.
This high-end device is known for its quality and efficiency, but can you use concentrates with it?
In this article, we’ll explore the world of concentrates and whether they’re compatible with the Volcano Hybrid.
What Are Concentrates?
Before we dive into using concentrates with the Volcano Vaporizer Hybrid, let’s first define what they are.
Concentrates are a type of cannabis extract that contains highly concentrated levels of THC or other cannabinoids. They come in various forms, including wax, shatter, crumble, and more.
Concentrates are made by extracting the resin from cannabis flowers to create a highly potent product.
The extraction process can vary depending on the type of concentrate being made, but generally involves using solvents like butane or CO2 to strip away the plant matter and leave behind only the essential oils.
Can You Use Concentrates with the Volcano Hybrid?
Now that we know what concentrates are let’s talk about using them in your Volcano Vaporizer Hybrid.
The good news is that yes, unlike with the Volcano Classic and Digit, you can use concentrates with in the Volcano Hybrid. But there are some things you should know before getting started.
Firstly, not all vaporizers are created equal when it comes to using concentrates. Some devices aren’t designed for use with concentrates at all while others require additional accessories to make it work properly.
Thankfully, the Volcano Vaporizer Hybrid is compatible with both dry herb and concentrates right out of the box.
To use concentrates in your Volcano Hybrid simply place them onto one of the included concentrate pads and insert it into your device’s chamber.

It’s important to note that when using concentrates in your Volcano Vaporizer Hybrid you should start at low temperatures and gradually increase it until you find your desired level of potency.
This will help prevent burning or overheating your concentrate which could lead to unpleasant flavors or even cause damage to your device.
Benefits and Drawbacks of Using Concentrates in Your Volcano Hybrid
Like any cannabis consumption method, there are pros and cons to using concentrates in your Volcano Vaporizer Hybrid.
Pros of Using Concentrates
- One major benefit is that concentrates provide stronger effects than traditional flower which means you’ll need less material overall to achieve similar results.
- Keep this in mind, please, because they really are A LOT more potent. And when I mean potent, I mean you’ll be stoned out of your brains for hours.
- Additionally, vaporizing wax produces less odor than dry herbs which makes it a great option if you want to be more discreet or create less “smell” when using your vaporizer.
Cons of Using Concentrates
- One drawback of using concentrates is that they can be messy compared to dry herb consumption methods.
- Wax especially has a sticky consistency which can make loading it into your device difficult without proper tools or technique.
- Another potential issue when using concentrates is that they may require additional accessories such as extra concentrate pads or screens which can add to overall costs over time.
The Hybrid comes with everything you need to use concentrates, but you will eventually run out of concentrate pads, and when this happens you will have to purchase more.
My advice? Use concentrates sparingly, save them for a special occasion, like when you want to get really messed up, and use bud the rest of the time.
It’ll save you a lot of headaches with respect to the cleaning and maintenance of your Volcano Hybrid.
In conclusion, if you’re someone who enjoys vaping cannabis concentrates then rest assured that you can absolutely use them with your Volcano Vaporizer Hybrid.
Be sure to follow manufacturer instructions carefully when doing so however as improper usage could result in damage or poor performance from your device.
Start at low temperatures when trying new materials like wax until you find what works best for you personally. And, again, take it easy with concentrates if you’ve never used them before.
Concentrates are A LOT stronger than bud and, if you’re new to weed, they can be rather overwhelming to say the least, so proceed with the utmost respect and do not go crazy right out of the gate.
