What Is a Head Shop?

What Is a Head Shop? 0

This is a fair question — you might know that a head shop is a place where you can buy glass pipes, bongs, and other accessories you’d typically use to smoke flower, but what is a head shop, exactly? Contrary to popular belief, head shops do not sell actual herb (like dispensaries do). They tend to only sell the paraphernalia and products that are associated with the culture surrounding flower.

In this blog post, we’ll be talking a little about the history of head shops, as well as answering any questions you may have about modern head shops and what they sell. Don’t go anywhere, because we’re about to get into the meat and potatoes of it!

Their unbridled creativity has resulted in a new line of bubblers that we’re proud to carry -- bubblers inspired by some of our favorite drinks.

One of the most common names is a water pipe or 'bong' to describe a type of pipe that uses air and water to filter and cool smoke.

History of Phil Jergenson: Creator of the Original Proto Pipe and Mendo Pipe 0

If you’ve been smoking with hand pipes for awhile now, you may have come across a couple of unique designs created by legendary pipe maker Phil Jergenson. His first invention was the Proto Pipe, which he designed and produced in the 1960’s. Though there have been imitation pipes circulated throughout the years, none come close to the quality and craftmanship of the original design.
