I took the plunge and bought a Volcano this week. I've been getting my fitness on lately (p90x, holla!) and I'm feeling the pipe smoking in my lungs, so I'm hoping the Volcano will be less taxing.

I'm still getting the hang of using this thing. The high/taste is different than smoking other ways. I'm not sure if I prefer it or not yet, but it's definitely easier on my lungs.

Anyway, the one thing I can't figure out is the optimal setting for the temperature. I have the standard model, not the digital. What do you guys set this thing at? Do you change it based on the buds or how many bags you've filled? Help!

Turn it to 5 1/2 for best results. Maybe 6 if you don't see any vapor. Once you fill a full bag at that temperature it should be cashed. Enjoy!

I hover around 6. Keep an eye on the density of the vapor in the bag. Too dense, ease back on the heat. Not dense enough, go higher.

p90x + Volcano set at 6 FTW! Thanks for the tips everyone. I'm loving my vaporizer now that I'm getting good at using it.

I noticed nobody mentioned another and IMO best method for the Volcano.

5.5 for 2 bags
6.0 for 2 bags
6.5 for 2 bags

I usually just cover the screen, so that's .25 or .3 of a gram(not sure).

First bags have flavor and potency, second bags less taste but more actives kicking in, and the last bags have a lot more actives but more of that marsh-mellow taste. By the end you have used up most of the actives and are feeling the full effects of your herb.

You can even keep going to 7.5 if you really want to be full on medicated, but you sacrifice flavor.

Turn it to 6 and i think this will be perfect.
