The AroMed vaporizer was definitely created with medicinal marijuana users in mind.
Well crafted with German ingenuity, the AroMed is one of the few vaporizers out there today that uses a water filtration system to remove impurities from the vapor.
And the AroMed is the only vaporizer of its kind that uses a halogen bulb as the heating device.
Filtrated vapor? That’s as pure as it gets baby!
The AroMed has been on the market since 1997, and it looks like it hasn’t changed at all since its introduction 14 years ago. Research & Experience, the company that makes the Aromed, seem to have stuck with the traditional German style of function over form.
Looking at the AroMed, it looks like it should be in a hospital somewhere, and, luckily for German patients suffering from a wide variety of illnesses that can be treated with cannabis, it is!
If there is any vaporizer that could get overlooked in a hospital’s supply closet, it’s the AroMed.
Although the AroMed is not the best looking vaporizer, it’s what’s on the inside that counts. Created from factory-standard medical parts, the AroMed, although not the most attractive model on the runway, consists of genius technology that can make the average vaporizer freak forget about the looks of this ugly duckling.
The hot air generator looks like something from the 1990’s. The water filter attaches to the generator by a single black strap. And, the way the halogen bulb is attached to the generator is laughably old school. But, looks aside, the AroMed does what it was built to do. And, will do it for a long, long time.
Its inner workings and attachments are extremely basic in design. But, this means there are no tiny movable parts (and especially none from plastic) that can easily break.
The AroMed doesn’t even have a fan inside like most other vaporizers. This allows the user to get all of the vapor by inhaling without having any vapor being wasted because it is being blown out by a constantly-spinning fan.
The AroMeds temp range is between 60°C (152°F) and 235°C (455°F). It uses the classic 3-button control feature, with one button to activate the heating device, and the other two buttons for controlling exact heating temperature down to the degree, which is displayed on an LCD screen.
Looking like an old desk lamp, the AroMed does heat up very quickly (because of its halogen bulb), and looks really cool when it is used in dimmed lighting. Ok. Maybe in dim lighting after a few tokes.
As I mentioned earlier, the AroMed uses the air from the users lungs to circulate the hot air through the filling chamber to vape the herbs inside. When this happens, the halogen lamp, lights up brightly, which can be best seen in dark or dimly lit rooms.
Although the AroMed has been around for several years, it’s not the first vaporizer you’ll see at a party. Maybe it’s in more hospitals or medical patients homes.
I could see this vaporizer being more popular with the “no nonsense” generation of seniors, than with nerds and hipsters.
The AroMed costs about €370, which had me scratching my head because it looks like something I can put together myself. One major design flaw is that you can’t see the glass attachment that holds the water for filtration and the LCD display at the same time. Duh!
The AroMed is an extremely unique, reliable and durable vaporizer. I just think Research & Experience should use some more of its research and experience to design something (rather than using prefabricated medical parts) that looks as good as it functions. Or maybe that’s just me.
