Please remember that glass is very fragile and with extreme changes in temp lower quality glass may crack. Wash and transport with care.

Much like a glass pipe, you can boil your metal pipe in water or soak it in alcohol. It’s important to recognize that metal needs more time to soak, so aim for a minimum of 15 minutes. We do not recommend putting metal pipes in the dishwasher. Dishwasher soaps may tarnish your pipe. For Vaporizers, it is wise to refer to cleaning requirements in your user guide.
The color options for glass pot pipes are endless. Some glass pipes are so beautiful that they can be considered an art piece. Just keep in mind: the more ornate the pipe – the higher the cost.

Cleaning your glass pipe is fairly simple. One option is to boil your pipe in water for up to 10 minutes. We suggest using a colander or a smaller vessel to reduce movement. Another option is alcohol – we recommend a minimum of 91% concentration. Soak your pipe in the alcohol for up to 10 minutes. Rinse and let dry.
Considered to be one of the most common pipes – the spoon pipe is one piece of material. Lighting and inhaling are done in tandem. Spoons can be basic to very ornate in style. They are also easy to clean and easy to transport.
Vaporizers use electricity to heat up your product and produce a significantly less amount of smoke. The tool itself heats up and cools down quickly, which makes it easy to store and transport. A vaporizer is convenient as it contains all the material, so there is no risk of spillage or damage during transportation.
There are so many types and styles of cannabis pipes on the market today. One thing is for certain, some pipes are simple in structure and others are complex, ornate and beautiful. They all have the same purpose yet produce different experiences. Today we will focus on some of the most common marijuana pipes.
Reminder: Before using a wooden pipe for the first time you will need to evenly burn the inside of the bowl to create a layer of charcoal.

Bongs work to cool the smoke with up to two water chambers, which reduces resins and nicotine. The percolator (second water source) helps to further cool the smoke and support a creamy and delish flavor. Bongs have increased flexibility due to their removable parts – and bonus this makes them easier to clean! Removable parts also open up opportunities to modify your bong to your specifications.

The options might seem endless when it comes to choosing marijuana pipes, but use these tips to make the best choice for you and your needs.

The term bowl is sometimes used to refer to the entire pipe. Other times, it is used to refer to the dry marijuana put in the pipe, as in “smoke a bowl.”

The Downstem – The piece the slide fits into to make a airtight seal is called the downstem. The smoke will move from the bowl to the water chamber through the downstem. Some downstems have a diffuser at the end. A series of small holes, the diffuser more fully integrates the marijuana smoke with the water for a more complete cooling effect.
The Carb – A small hole, usually on the side or front of a pipe, the carb allows the user to use their finger to control the airflow of the pipe and to clear the chamber or stem. You will cover the carb with your finger or thumb when taking a hit and uncover the carb when clearing the chamber of smoke.

Bongs work the same as other smoking devices in that they have a bowl to hold your lit dry herb, a mouthpiece from which to inhale smoke, and stem to connect the two. Like bubblers, what makes bongs unique is the addition of the water chamber.
Dab rigs work in the same way as bongs, except that they are designed for cannabis extracts, instead of dry flower. In fact, with the use of an adapter, some bongs can be turned into dab rigs, and vice versa.
Dabbing has soared in popularity since surging onto the scene in the early 2010’s. This is due in large part to the fact that dabbing provides a more potent, more flavorful, and possibly more healthy alternative to smoking dry herb.
To smoke your marijuana from your pipe, you will first want to fill the bowl with your favorite marijuana strain, broken down to your preferred consistency by hand or with a grinder. The finer the grind, the more robust the smoke will be. It is best not to overfill your pipe, as your marijuana might expand when first combusted and fall out.

The Stem – The dab rig’s stem is the part of the pipe that moves vapor from the marijuana extract in heated on the nail through the water chamber to the mouthpiece. Some dab rig stems have an “ice pinch” so that ice can be added to the stem to further chill the vapor.
