Rapid Fire Marketing Announces New Dry Herb Vaporizer Unit and Corporate Strategy for 2013
New Proprietary Dry Herb/Blend Unit in Development.
LAS VEGAS — Rapid Fire Marketing (RFMK), the only publicly-traded company for vaporizers, announced yesterday that the Company is gearing up for the introduction of its new vaporizer to meet the demand in the vaporizer marketplace.
Since October of last year, Rapid Fire Marketing has been working with HexCorp to develop a new vaporizer exclusively for dried herbs and dried blends. The strongest demand in the vaporizer market is for a unit that will vaporize dried plant material and dried blends.
Rapid Fire Marketing hasn't announced the name of the vaporizer, but will be trademarked and patented and designed to be the among the best dry herb/blend vaporizers available in the marketplace.
The Company also announced that it will no longer order vaporizers constructed with off the shelf technology but, instead, vaporizers will be developed from the beginning with proprietary technology that will build the Company’s intellectual property portfolio going forward.
Several Features of RFMK's New Dry Herb Vaporizer
- Three Temperature Settings: Different herbs vaporize at different temperatures. This will allow the user to select the best temperature for the herb they want to vaporize.
- Constant Heat Distribution: Internal stainless steel heating chamber provides easy access for changing dry aromatherapy herbs, provides advanced heat distribution and easy cleaning. One of the biggest issues for dry vaporizers is the difficulty in ‘drawing’ vapor from the unit because of the heating coil configuration found in most units. This new vaporizer will have a constant heat distribution mechanism which will enable a much easier ‘draw’ and superior taste. However, after 15 minutes of inactivity, the unit will lower the temperature in the chamber to conserve battery life.
- Fold open and fold close design: This design will allow the user to quickly and easily swap batteries, load and clean the unit.
Tom Allinder, CEO of Rapid Fire Marketing, told THCbiz.com, “We are very excited to finally be able to offer an innovative vaporizer unit that Rapid Fire Marketing will own and market exclusively. Since I became CEO, our vision has been to have our own line of vaporizers that are patented and, more importantly, are the best vaporizer units available in the marketplace. In developing our new vaporizer units, we have managed to keep production costs down to maintain very competitive pricing.”
Allinder continued, “We still are expecting delivery of 2500 more CANNAcig and Cumulus units in the next month which we will continue selling while we are waiting on the new dry herb and blend unit to be produced and delivered. We will not be placing any further orders for CANNAcig and Cumulus now that we are transitioning to a vaporizer company that offers unique designs with the functionality only available through Rapid Fire Marketing."
“In addition, we have begun negotiations with other vaporizer companies to explore ways of working through joint marketing agreements. As I mentioned in my update a couple of weeks ago, we need to expand our business to either joint venture or acquire ‘hot’ items in the medical cannabis industry – which includes a lot more than just vaporizers. As soon as we are fully reporting, we will have the capital to expand and broaden Rapid Fire Marketing’s business significantly,” Allinder concluded.
Progress on the new dry vaporizer unit is proceeding ahead of schedule. Rapid Fire Marketing’s HexCorp representative is in Hong Kong overseeing the development of this unit. These new units are expected to be available for sale within two to three months. [ See More Details ]
Pricing for the new dry herb vaporizer will be competitively set in the mobile vaporizer marketplace, which will retail for $199.95.
More details, specifications, and the name of the vaporizer will be released shortly.
