With the runaway success of the legendary Silver Surfer Vaporizer, our fans begged us to develop a more affordable desktop vape - without sacrificing the durability, ease-of-use and great flavor of the Silver Surfer. So we did - and in 2006 we released the Da Buddha Vaporizer. The Da Buddha was an immediate hit with 7th Floor loyalists, as it is based on the same ceramic heating element and glass-on-glass design of the original Silver Surfer desktop vape. To satisfy our cost-conscious customers, we switched to a lightweight aluminum temperature control knob, outsourced some manufacturing, and created a much more simple yet durable hemp/polyester (hempster) blend padded carrying bag. We then standardized the glass components removing the options for colors. Yet you can still upgrade to all the wonderful custom glass made by 7th Floor. Final assembly and testing is performed at our Colorado Springs factory, and it carries the same 3-year warranty as the SSV.
