The Vapocane is a two-piece glass adapter by spanish company SOLWE, specially designed to fit any 14mm/18mm smoking device and turn it into a vaporizer. In 2010 it has won the award for Best Product at the Cannatrade expo in Switzerland.
The Vapocane mainly consists of the Vapocane bowl and glass rod. The bowl is where you fill in your herbs and the rod is for heating them up.
While previous editions have been sold either as 14mm version or as 18mm version only, now there is just one size (14mm) left, but it includes an adapter to fit both common ground glass sockets, directly.
Like the Vaponic, the Vapocane also requires a jet-flame torch in order to vaporize your herbs.
There are two different methods you can use your Vapocane with, a quick one and a rather costly one in terms of time. The quick one uses the flame directly to vaporize the ingredients of your herbs, therefore you have to suck in the flame of your torch through the hole at the top of your vapocane (you will hear a whistling sound if you’re doing it correctly) and in just a few seconds you have produced some fine vapor through the mix of cool air and the direct flame. It’s an very easy method and any jet flame lighter will do the job.
I prefer the longer method though, because here the vapor is released through the hot glass only and your herbs won’t be in touch with the flame directly.
But this also means you have to heat up the whole glass rod from the top to the bottom for at least two minutes, constantly. Than the Vapocane will produce nice, clear and tasty, but lesser milky vapor. After every draw you have to heat up the rod for another minute to take the next puff.
At all, you will heat up the glass for about 5 – 10 minutes, until your herbs are completely used!
So make sure you have a good jet flame torch and lots of gas, a cheap one will probably not do the job for you.
To be honest, It takes some time and some training to bring the vaporization process to perfection, but after you’ve learned it once you will recieve very good results with your Vapocane.
A good device for first-time vapers and waterpipe smokers, especially if they’re not impatience and on a strictly limited budget. The Vapocane is available for 29,50€ only and therefore just a small investment compared to other devices.
