Vaping History

The History Of Vaporizing – They Are Older Than You Think!

The history of vaporizing herbs for inhalation is a practice that can be traced far back and across many different civilizations.

What exactly is Vaporizing or “VAPING”?

first-time-vaps

If you have been living under a rock and aren’t sure what vaping is, here’s an explanation – The basic technique since the inception of Vaping either old or the new age battery supported vaporizers is the same. Vaporizers heat the ingredients to an optimum heat. The optimal temperature range for cannabis is between 180 – 210 °C for the perfect vape, Compared to joints, bongs or a pipe that burns the ingredients.

The blends (Oils, Wax, or Dry Herb) are heated to a level allowing the release of the materials but below the temperature that would burn them. As there is no combustion during the process of heating, a vapor is released that is quite cool and non-irritating to the user’s throat, eyes and skin.

 5th Century B.C.

hist

Vaporizing to humans has been known dated back in Egypt. From the book “The History of Herodotus” (1928, Dial Press, Inc., p.226, Book IV) during 5th century B.C., Herodotus, who is often called the “Father of History”, recorded his account of the ancient practice enjoyed by Scythians.

“The Scythians take some of this hemp-seed and throw it upon the red-hot stones; immediately it vaporizes and gives out such a vapor as no Grecian vapor-bath can exceed; the Scythians, delighted, shout for joy.”

The steady heat from the baking stones would produce a pleasant smelling vapor.

1500 years ago – Afghanistan (Current Day India-Pak border)

Technically speaking the first real vaporizer was invented by Irfan Shiekh of the Mogul’s (Present-day Afghanistan) Safavid Dynasty know to us as “Hookah, or as a waterpipe, narghile, arghila, qalyān, shisha”. About 1400 years ago Moguls then rulers of India introduce Hookah to India which was then more used to a Chillum.

The Controversy over the invention

There is quite a big controversy over the invention of the first vaporizer.

1927, USA

The first one who came up with the idea of the electronic cigarette is Joseph Robinson. He did it in 1927, in which he filed a patent to the USPTO for the first Mechanical Butane ignition Vaporizer. Robinson’s patent was approved and published by the USPTO. Little to his Credit that he deserves; He still owns the patents of the first Nicotine Vaporizer.

1960, USA

1960 was the dawn of the modern day inventor of e-cigarette. Korean Veteran Herbert A. Gilbert. The Modern day vaporizers, until this day, are claimed to be built on the blueprint of Mr. Gilberts’ Original design. Mr. Gilbert to this date works for Emperor E-Cigarettes who bought his technology.

1990 to 1994, Amsterdam

Father of Cannabis Vaporizer Eagle Bill has a cannabis community cult following known to discover the popularizing of the Cannabis vaporizer. He termed his device “safe and effective alternative to smoking.” For over a decade, he was a favored exhibit at the Sensi Seed Bank’s ‘Hash Museum’ in Amsterdam.

The museum attracts visitors from around the world and Bill enjoyed sharing his new technologies to any willing inhalers. A resident of Amsterdam for 12 years, this was soon before the 1994 Cannabis Cup. Sensi Seeds gave Bill space and he blew away the crowd with his new technology.

It remained the most popular exhibit at the Cannabis Cup for 10 years, earning Bill and Sensi Seeds numerous first place cups. Soon he set up shop on a daily basis in the Hash Museum and used that platform to turn the world on to vaporization. Eagle Bill was introduced to vaporizing in 1993 by a Californian grower who used a heat gun to vaporize aromatic blends.

In an effort to design a more affordable means of vaporizing while simultaneously raising public awareness, Eagle Bill invented the “Shake and Vape” based on the very same Ancient Egyptian methods. Eagle Bill’s Glass pipe vaporizer that heated the bottom of a glass bowl with instead lighting the Cannabis itself.

Pioneered by a Native American, the Shake and Vape was nicknamed the “peace pipe of the future”. Eagle Bill’s invention would be the catalyst for rapid technological and product developments in the vaporizer industry and a big inspiration. Bill passed away on 22 may 2005, Georgia, USA.

In 1994 BC Vaporizer, Canada claims to have invented the first electrically charged vaporizer inspired on Bill Amato’s design.  BC Vaporizer still is running in business today and are inventors of solar power charged vaporizers. It was Storz & Bickel Company in 2000 that invented the new era of Desktop vaporizers and named it “VOLCANO” just like its work around.

The history of vaporizers as controversial as it sounds still holds the timeline benchmark and technically makes Hookah the Oldest vaporizer.

Modern Day vaporizers credit no doubt goes to everyone involved in the process but will be still credited to late Bill Amato for his pioneering endeavor to the Cannabis world.
