The Volcano Vaporizer is the ultimate system to release the flavor & aroma from herbs, spices, and essential oils.

How To Use

In depth operational guide to the VOLCANO Vaporizer, featuring the DIGIT, CLASSIC, EASY Valve & SOLID Valve.


When you hear the word “pulse”, what do you think of?

A pulse is an indicator of life, that a heart is beating.


Sometimes bells and whistles are nice. Sometimes they just get in the way.

What do people want out of a vaporizer? Good vapor. It’s not rocket science, but it’s amazing how so many companies are adding a whole bunch of digitization, gadgets and gizmos to their products in an effort to – what? – distract customers from the fact that their vapor is no good.

Well, with the PLENTY, the vapor is plenty good. Manufactured by Storz & Bickel, who also makes the Volcano (read our write up about The Volcano here), the PLENTY exemplifies quality German engineering. They only use food-safe and aroma-free materials in its construction, so you can be sure you are getting the healthiest, purest, and most flavorable vapor possible.

According to the company website, the PLENTY Vaporizer is “an economically priced, powerful and robust hand-held device. The heat exchanger is equipped with a double helix to ensure efficient air heating and high-yield vaporization. The highly efficient stainless steel cooling coil ensures a pleasant aromatic experience.”

Clearly, these Germans know what they are talking about.

We’d be happy to hook you up with one of these powerful vaporizers at The Glass House TX. Let us know if you have any questions!

“We created the perfect grinder,” sounds like a pretty bold statement, but in the case of the Santa Cruz Shredder, it’s definitely justified.

Launched about two and a half years ago, the Santa Cruz Shredder is a grinder unlike any other. In fact, they own the patent to prove it.

The Glass House TX recently caught up with the founder of Santa Cruz Shredder, Matt Hansen, and asked him to tell us a bit more about this innovative product.

Glass House:

How did the Santa Cruz Shredder come about?


I’ve been in the industry for over 20 years and no one had ever improved on the grinder. They just reverse-engineered the same thing everyone else had already done. I wanted to re-engineer the grinder from the ground up.

Glass House:

So how is this one different?


We hired engineers to come up with a brand new design. What’s different is our tooth design. The teeth in the grinder are inverted squares instead of diamond shaped.  This gives you the perfect consistency every time. No metal burrs, no chunks. It gives you that perfect fluffy product you want.

Glass House:

Anything else you want our customers at the Glass House TX to know?


The Santa Cruz Shredder is the ONLY medical-grade grinder in the world. It’s more efficient, it works better, it’s just different. We have a patent and it’s being sold in 500 stores. I stand behind my product 100% and would love to answer any more questions you can think of!

It’s clear that Matt believes in what he’s doing. In fact, he was mopping the floor in the warehouse when we called.

Even innovators still have to mop. But thanks to Matt and the Santa Cruz Shredder, no one has to use an inferior grinder.

Comes in four sizes.

Size does matter.


Pink! And gray (with lid on)

It’s hard to write a review about the Smokebuddy device without making it sound like a Public Service Announcement:

“Are you a smoker?”

“Do you have pets, roommates, or family members in your household who are suffering from your secondhand smoke?”

“Do you wish you could smoke at the office without getting in trouble?”

“If you answered yes to any of the questions above, then the Smokebuddy is for YOU.”

It sounds cheesy, but Smokebuddy does indeed eliminate odor, remove smoke, AND reduce secondhand smoke. It is a small plastic device that you blow into. It somehow – miraculously – absorbs your exhaled smoke using a carbon filter, so that nothing – not even a hint of a vapor – comes out the other end:

You can use Smokebuddy at home, at the office, virtually wherever you go. It is portable, convenient, and disposable – but each one lasts through about 300 uses, so it is cost effective too. It can also be cleaned and maintained with a tissue or damp rag throughout the 300 uses.

Smokebuddy now comes in two different sizes too: Original and Junior (pocket size). Original comes in 8 colors (black, red, yellow, lime, pink, blue, green, and orange), and Jr. comes in 5 (black, red, yellow, lime, and pink).

This one of those really cool, innovative products we are proud to offer The Glass House.

Once in awhile, a true miracle product comes along that actually makes you shake your head and say, “How did they do that?!” Grunge Off Super Soaker is one of these amazingly awesome must-haves. It seriously works. Watch the video below for a demonstration.

Grunge Off is a cleaning solution formulated exclusively for glass, more specifically – our beloved water pipes that have a habit of getting dirty and grungy way too quickly. Grunge Off is easy to use (no scrubbing necessary!), non-toxic, non-gritty, reusable, alcohol-free, biodegradable, recyclable, and earth-friendly. Oh, it deodorizes and sanitizes, too. Did we mention it is just plain awesome?


They say “once you go black, you never go back.” For those of us who have used Sheldon Black products, we couldn’t agree more. Many people say this is simply the best glass in the world.

The Sheldon Black brand is synonymous with quality and beauty, which sets apart this product line of handblown glass pipes, water pipes, tubes, bubblers, and ash catchers. But they don’t stop there. They are true artists, doing amazing things with glass pieces and diffusion, even collaborating with other artists such as Pakoh and Evan York. They also make recyclers, micro-tini’s, and microfilters, and design special editions of their logos and pieces.

Sheldon Black engraves all of their pieces with their symbol to ensure every buyer an authentic Sheldon Black piece.

When you combine curiosity, passion, and professionalism as Sheldon Black has done in creating their product line over 20 years, you set the standard. And that is why the Sheldon Black brand is called “Premium American Smokeware.”

Available at The Glass House TX, Dallas and Lewisville.
