Some are small like a pack of smokes, others rise from the tabletop like a mountain… and this one looks like a piece of laboratory equipment. For a good reason: „It‘s science, bitches!“ as a certain character from Breaking Bad would say. Joking aside – The AroMed vaporizer stands out from the mass of steam-spewing apparati because of a design that reflects the fine art of vaporization. As a matter of fact the German manufacturer conducts scientific research and its products are classified as „medical device“ by the FDA. Versatility is one of the main ideas, so these vaporizers can be used for all kinds plant matter, fresh or dried, as well as for oils and tinctures.
An AroMed vaporizer has no fan. The machine is built to match the individual breathing rhythm of its user, the actual vaporization happens directly while inhaling – and only then. In combination with the precise temperature control this means an efficiency that is around 90%. Two books have been published so far that describe the therapeutic effects and the exact vaporization points of more than 100 plants, including many ethnobotanics. While there is no fan, all models have a water filtration system which supports the ultra-smooth feeling of the AroMed.
Sustainability is a big thing…
…since quite a while and, of course, also AroMed embraces this philosophy. It‘s refreshing to see that these guys don‘t promise to save the world, but rather promise a „cradle to cradle“ concept which guarantees that all the wearing parts are compatible with every new and old model. This again allows users to upgrade their device. The energy consumption of 60W is not too bad, neither.
