Why Glass Pipes? Legal Herb Smoking.

Casually put, legal herbal smoking is an old custom of inhaling smoke from herbal mixtures. It’s been practiced for as long as man can remember contained in almost every society.

Until recently, herb selection was limited to local species. These days, thanks to the internet commerce, situation has rapidly changed. Hundreds of different herbs kinds and herbal mixes available almost at any online herb store.

Such wide selection leaves any herb smoker, from beginner to expert, facing the ultimate question – what is the ultimate herb smoking device?

Using wooden, ceramic or metal pipes is simply unacceptable. Due to material nature, it’s impossible to completely clean out such pipes without getting its material to come into the chemical reaction with cleaning solution. As a result, dangerous chemical residue and, in case with metals, corrosion collected on inner sides of the pipe.

Also, many herbs are extremely potent and, in some cases, very little known about the way they react with the human body. And absolutely nothing know about interreaction between different herb kinds. That is why using these “impossible-to-completely-clean-out” pipes to experiment with more than one herb kind is not only not recommended, but also dangerous for your health.

We would not recommend you to make and use any disposal homemade smoking devices; those are unsafe and could be harmful for your body.

And that’s where glass pipes come into play. Created with herbal smoking in mind, glass smoking devices can be easily cleaned with any chemical cleaning solution available on the market within just minutes.

Glass pipes are superior to metal, ceramic or wooden pipes when it comes to herb smoking because:

metal/ceramic pipes retain heat and react chemically with combustion, whereas the glass pipes don't.
glass is chemically inert and does not produce unintended chemicals with combustion, instead producing only herbal smoke.
when handled with care, glass pipes are virtually indestructible unlike wooden pipes which burn down overtime.
colors of the glass pipes intensify when heated and become more pronounced when resinous deposits accumulate with use.

Most glass pipes designed with small inside out loading chambers. Such design allows smoker to monitor and effectively adjust amounts of herb placed in pipe – an invaluable feature for beginners dealing with highly potent substances. Some of such herbs are:
