Smoking has never looked more classic with pipes. There are different types you can always go for. The hand pipe or the glass pipes. The hand pipes are known to be classic, a vintage smoking device used by older smokers, like your grandparents. Some of them would refer to it as bowls. It is made of borosilicate glass that is perfect for all smokers.
The glass sleeve would give you a dry smoke which means there would be no need for water, this also means someone who is looking for bubbles might not enjoy its use. In this case, you might prefer a bong or a brush rig instead.
If you want to smoke dry herbs or tobacco or any other substance, or legal substance with your pipe, all you need to do is wrap it up in the bowl chamber and light. Just like every other means of smoking using a device, there is usually a hole in the side, carb, that acts as a way to give way to the smoke.
It however, are considered to be one of the most adaptable and convenient ways to smoke dried herbs and this is because they require little or no effort, just a lighter. They have been found suitable for all kinds of situations. You can either smoke them at home or while on the street taking a walk.
They come in different tubes and can be made from ceramic and/or wood but the most choice is the glass sleeve, often called a bowl. These pipes provide a smooth and reliable way to smoke your favourite weed and come in small packaging and are quite portable, hence they are quite small, enough to fit into your pocket.
These glass sleeves come in different shapes and the most popular ones are:
- Spoon: this is the most popular hand tube option, thanks to the shape. It employs an expansive, forward-facing carburettor opening and gives a bigger shot. For beginners, it might be too hard to use but with practice, it gets better.
- Sherlock: they are named after the famous detective Sherlock Holmes, and are quite popular. They have a long and vertical handle which makes them easier to hold, some have a flat base that gives them an upright position to prevent your herbs from dropping out.
- Chillum: it is considered to be the smallest and simplest of all the designs. They are straight tubes with a front light and no hole.
- Glass blunt
