The Lotus Vaporizer, genuinely introduced in Fall of 2010, the attractive, compact and robust Professionally designed by an MIT-educated medical device engineer, and manufactured in Sunny California, the Lotus Vaporizer truly defines the healthy-alternative for the vaporizer enthusiast with its patented Clean-Air system. To use the Lotus, simply remove the VaporCap, fill the bowl with loose, ground herbs then place it back. The stem is equipped with strong magnets to securely hold VaporCap. Now, using a torch-lighter hover the flame over the aluminum Hot-Plate about 2-seconds, and inhale slowly to acquire vapors. If your herds turn golden-brown, then you've properly used the Lotus. Cleaning the Lotus is easy, just soak-in isopropyl alcohol, or use your preferred cleaning methods. To avoid damaging the Lotus, remember to practice balancing the flame. Do not overheat the Hot-Plate and avoid heating the VaporCap. Available in short-stem 5.5 inches & long-stem 6.5 inches.
