Storz & Bickel is pleased to announce that Health Canada has issued a Medical Device Licence for the new Volcano Medic 2 (License No.: 103842), an advanced cannabis vapourizer device for medical use. This licence permits distribution to medical institutions, clinics, and patients in Canada – including distribution through Spectrum Therapeutics, the medical cannabis division of Canopy Growth Corporation (TSX:WEED, NYSE:CGC). The device is currently available for purchase on Spectrum Therapeutics, Storz & Bickel’s online shop, and various medical cannabis clinics across Canada.
Storz & Bickel is known for their long history of high quality vapourizer manufacturing and they were the first company to manufacture medically-certified cannabis vapourizers, including the iconic original Volcano Medic.
The Volcano Medic 2, which has been approved for medical use in Europe, Australia, and now Canada, includes improved features for patients such as tenfold faster heat up times, an alternative tubular (direct-to-mouth) inhalation method in addition to the standard Valve Balloon, and an intuitive touch display that allows patients to set their desired temperature directly on the device. Patients can expect the same high-quality materials, impeccable craftsmanship, and unparalleled safe and combustion-free vaporization experience they’ve become accustomed to with all Storz & Bickel devices with the new reinvented Volcano Medic 2. Alongside their medically approved cannabis vapourizers, Storz & Bickel is known for manufacturing non-medical vapourizers in accordance with international technical safety standards, ensuring premium quality for each component part.
Due to its classification as a licensed medical device, the Volcano Medic 2 is eligible for tax deduction benefits in Canada or cost reimbursements by health insurance companies in Germany, similar to its predecessor and the Mighty Medic.
“Storz and Bickel is internationally-known for its best-in-class device design and manufacturing,” said Dr. Mark Ware, Chief Medical Officer, Canopy Growth. “This license will allow us to offer even more options for patients who may be interested in vapourizing whole-flower dried cannabis as an alternative method of medicating.”
In the past 12 months, Storz & Bickel updated several products in their existing portfolio, adding new features, improvements, and adjustments designed to increase user and patient experience, including the new Volcano Hybrid that was released in June and the Crafty+ that launched in November.
