There are so many types of glass pipes available on the market that choosing the right one for your needs can be a complex and confusing task. That’s why we’ve put together this list of the top types of glass pipes to help make your decision a bit easier:
Decorative glass pipes are most commonly used by those who want to keep things a little hush hush. This is because decorative options can quite often be used purely for aesthetics without holding any functional value therefore leaving the purpose of these tools ambiguous. They’re also great for those looking to create a luxurious recreational experience as decorative options are designed with beauty in mind and many are truly works of art.
Oil pourers are another great option for those who wish to keep things a bit more discreet. Despite what some have come to believe, these multi-purpose tools can, in fact, be used for pouring oil (and in many cases that’s actually their main function) so if you have any lamps or other devices that burn oil, these glass pipes will blend into your home without you even having to try.
The Basic Burner
The basic burner is one of the most portable options available when it comes to glass pipes. Easily carried around in your pocket or bag, basic burners are often used for tobacco consumption and feature a bowl like chamber where you place the product on one end of the glass pipes and a standard mouthpiece on the other.
One of the most commonly used types of glass pipe is the bong. Similar in appearance to oil pourers, bongs are more basic and their purpose is quite clear when you see one. Featuring a water filtration chamber that smoke must pass through before reaching you, these glass pipes offer an experience that is on the smoother end of the spectrum. They are not, however, subtle, so if you’re looking for something you can leave lying around even when you’ve got less liberal guests over, we suggest considering a different option.
A bubbler is a slightly fancier version of the basic burner. Featuring a water chamber similar to that found in a bong, but a shape that is very close to that of the basic burner, this category of glass pipes is for those who want luxury on the go. Although not as portable as basic burners or chillums (more details below) these are still a great portable option and offer a smoother delivery than other glass pipes that you can take with you on the go.
In direct rivalry with the basic burner we have the chillum. Resembling a tailor made cigarette in shape and size, these options are just as portable as the basic burner (and in some cases even more so) and target the same demographic. The product is placed in one end of the cylinder and you use the mouthpiece on the other end.
Finally we have the dab rig. These glass pipes are very similar to bongs, however, they are designed for use with more potent strains. With this type of system you would heat the water chamber and then make use of the device as usual. These options are not particularly portable and their purpose is quite obvious but they do offer a smooth experience.
So there you have it, the seven most popular types of glass pipes – hopefully this article has helped you decide which is best for your needs.
