LOA Volcano Vaporizer

It seems almost week by week; public perception of cannabis is changing. The medical and recreational user base is rapidly expanding to include people from all walks of life. As fast as this phenomenon is moving, the products that are associated with it are not. The driving goal behind Loa is to shift perception by creating a beautiful ‘on display’ object that aims to destigmatize cannabis related paraphernalia. The result is a celebratory upscale in-home product experience that better reflects the ever-widening user base.

LOA Volcano Vaporizer

It seems almost week by week; public perception of cannabis is changing. The medical and recreational user base is rapidly expanding to include people from all walks of life. As fast as this phenomenon is moving, the products that are associated with it are not. The driving goal behind Loa is to shift perception by creating a beautiful ‘on display’ object that aims to destigmatize cannabis related paraphernalia. The result is a celebratory upscale in-home product experience that better reflects the ever-widening user base.

Reimagining A Classic

One of the main goals with LOA was to simplify user interaction to its essence by removing superfluous controls, buttons, and indicators. Using LOA is easy. First, the user loads the heating chamber, then rotates the heat dial to the desired setting. Inserting the vapor bag starts the heat process which fills the vapor bag until it reaches capacity. The vapor bag is detached from the body and the valve is placed on the user’s lips to inhale. No more timers, LEDs, or multi-step interactions.
