    Was wondering if anyone has had any experiences with wax in the volcano vaporizer. Can it even be done successfully?

    I've always use the liquid mesh pads for the wax. They're essentially steel wool pads. However, I've noticed that his heating element has started to become dirty from the wax going thru the steel wool.

    So, I wonder if I'm using too much wax? Or the steel wool is inadequate?

    I've been smoking his wax at 400F. I have started to put a small piece of paper toweling in the chamber with the wax and the liquid mesh pad. The wax seems to melt into the paper towel and the bags are tasty but I wonder if this is a good or bad idea?

    Maybe volcano is not a good tool for vaporizing hash oil, wax, or honeycomb wax? Anybody have any recommendations comments or suggestions?

    Get a glass health stone that fits in the chamber and is solid on the bottom so the oil doesn't drip through.

    Any recommendations on where one could procure a health stone?

    The glass health stone looks like the steel wool liquid pads but bigger is that correct?

    What exactly do you mean by "Dragonfruit waxes"? I just picked up a dragonfruit and it does have wax on it, but it's a vegetable wax applied to the stem to keep it from drying out, like the same stuff they spray on turnips. What exactly are you doing here?

    They're called glass health stones but aren't made of glass? They look like pumice stones?

    Pumice IS glass, so they very well could be.

    Not kidding, wiki it.

    Its THC wax with dragonfruit flavoring. I don't think it has real dragonfruit parts in it because it is greenish/yellow and dragonfruit is pink.

    well, Volcano is great however, is not optimal for the consumption of oils and concentrates. It is designed to be used with dry herb. Just start at a lower temp and go higher till you're satisfied, no big deal!
