We have been speculating on when Storz & Bickel would release something new and for a 20 year old company with only five vaporizers on the market we advised our customers to not hold their breath. However today we have found out that Storz & Bickel DOES have something new in the pipeline and according to FCC filings has had for sometime; Testing since February 2018 to be more exact.
So we just got back from the annual Champs Trade Show in Las Vegas, Nevada. Although this was the first time To the Cloud Vapor Store made an appearance you could definitely see the marijuana industry is booming just by the sheer number of companies and attendees present, but I’ll spare you the trite and conventional commentary, I think you know the marijuana space is booming , yadda, yadda, yadda.
It was announced last week Canopy Growth, a leader in the cannabis space, had Acquired German Vaporizer manufacturer, Storz & Bickel, for 145 million Euros or 165 Million Dollars.
With the acquisition, Canopy Growth will gain access to the extensive patent library of Storz & Bickel – allowing for collaborative design of proprietary vaporizers under the penmanship of Canopy Growth.
The Mighty and the Crafty Vaporizers were released in 2014 and three years later Storz & Bickel still have us waiting in anticipation for their next new vaporizer. However constantly releasing new vaporizers is not Storz & Bickel’s game. We need to remember that the Classic Volcano Vaporizer was released to the American Market in 2003. Since 2003 Storz & Bickel have rolled out four additional vaporizers, one of which is just a Digital Volcano – the digital version of a Classic Volcano,so it’s hard to even say they have 5 different vaporizers. To add more context it was over a decade before Storz & Bickel rolled out their portable vaporizer line ( the Mighty and the Crafty) after the success they had with the Volcano.
