Because the Beam does not heat any metal or plastic, it does not leach or off-gas any dangerous toxins.

•   Terpenes never contact metal in the Beam, removing any possibility of heavy metal release due to corrosion.

•   The Beam’s lower temperature keeps terpenes in a safe range.


Conventional diffusers and vaporizers contain components made from metal alloys which can release lead and poisonous heavy metals when heated. Heavy metals can cause high blood pressure, kidney disease and brain damage (1). Even ceramic coils often use metal alloys to conduct electricity, which can release heavy metals into the materials you are vaping (2).

Terpenes have a natural ability to dissolve even high-quality metals, thereby releasing heavy metal toxins. Extracts that contain terpenes can release significant levels of lead and other toxins into your lungs when in contact with metal, especially for extended periods of time. This can pose a serious health risk, as the toxins can accumulate in your body over time and cause damage.

When using a dab rig, it can reach very high temperatures ranging from 600-1000°F. Additionally, standard cartridge designs let terpenes be heated multiple times before inhalation by a user. These repeated heating cycles can cause terpenes to become toxic, releasing up to 10 dangerous poisons including benzene. Benzene is known to cause cancer, blood diseases, and immune system failure.

Counterfeit vape cartridges pose a public health risk due to the illegal use of vitamin E oil and other harmful substances.


Beam diffuser uses light instead of metal to heat and is free of heavy metals and impurities that may contaminate materials.

The Beam and the Beam's pods are designed in a way that terpenes do not come in contact with metal, which eliminates the possibility of terpenes corroding metal and getting into your material and lungs. The only thing that is heated in the Beam is ceramic, while the un-vaporized material is held in terpene-resistant nylon pods.

The Beam heats only the material being vaporized, and its average temperature is 380°F, which is the point of material vaporization.

The Beam carts are licensed only to state-authorized companies, lessening the risk of illegally filled carts with fake or dangerous materials.
