Understanding Dry Herb Pipe Types
When it comes to understanding dry herb pipes, it can be hard to tell the difference between all the varieties. Finding the perfect hit can be a complicated process, but SMOKEA® wants to make it a little easier for you. We know the best hand pipes on the market and we want you to get in on that action.
In the Know
Here’s the thing: pipes are not actually complicated, they only seem it. Water pipes use water as a filtration system, dry pipes do not. Dry herb pipes are not for everyone, but they definitely have their advantages. First of all, they can be made with a wide variety of materials, like silicone, clay, metal, and more. Secondly, they’re super simple since they’re just the small bowl, pipe, and sometimes a carburetor. That simplicity means that you can carry them around discreetly and they’re much easier to clean than traditional water pipes. Not to mention, dry pipes are generally cheaper. For beginners or people on a budget, these were made for you.
The Different Types
There are many variations of pipes within the dry herb pipes category. Here’s a basic rundown:
Chillums: Chillums are great because they’re small, affordable, and they get the job done. We love these because of how simple they are: a straight shot from the bowl to the mouthpiece. Chillums are perfect for that quick, on-the-go hit.
Glass Blunts: These are the ones most people go for. Glass blunts offer portability and ease of a blunt without having to roll your own tobacco. Not only can you pack a lot in here, many blunts are made to eject the ash as you smoke. It’s easy to see why glass blunts are some of the best hand pipes around.
One Hitters: One hitters, or bats, are a dry herb pipe staple for smokers. These are small, discreet, portable masterpieces for those who only want to smoke a little bit at a time. Grab a one hitter for all of your on-the-go needs.
Sherlocks: Contrary to popular belief, Sherlocks are a user-friendly everyday smoking piece. These old-fashioned looking pipes are saxophone shaped, which allows the smoke to take longer to get from the bowl to the mouthpiece, resulting in a much smoother hit. They’re a great around the house piece since their design also makes them easy to see and stabilize on a surface.
Steamrollers: These bad boys are for experienced smokers only. Steamrollers work similarly to chillums, but because of their top bowl, they produce a much larger hit. If you’re looking for a party smoke, hit these up.
