How to smoke a pipe
Many people choose to smoke out of glass pipes because they are often simpler, quicker, and more discreet than bongs or rolling. Pipes are comprised of three main parts: the bowl, which holds the weed; a carb to control airflow; and a hole to inhale the delicious smoke. Smoking out of a pipe is very simple and straightforward. This is how to do it.
- Packing the bowl - The first step is to prepare your dry herb of choice by evenly shredding it in a grinder. This ensures a smooth burn. If you like to use a pipe screen, add one to the bottom of the bowl to filter out ash and burning herb. Next fill the bowl by pressing down slightly, but not too densely that air flow through the pipe is restricted. Remember to think about how many people are smoking and choose your pipe and pack your bowl accordingly. Nobody wants to be left with an ashy hit!
- Taking a hit - Cover the carb with your finger while you light the bowl and inhale. After you’re done inhaling, remove your finger and clear the pipe by inhaling one last time.
- Cleaning a glass pipe - No one wants to rip a grimy pipe. After each session, simply wipe down the bowl and mouthpiece with alcohol. When the inside of the glass pipe becomes too encrusted, give it a deep clean by soaking it in a mixture of 100% isopropyl alcohol and salt. Just place everything in a bag and give it a good shake, then let it soak.
Now that you know all the ins and outs about pipes, it’s time to find one that makes your heart sing. Here are just a few cool glass pipes that will get you lit real quick.
