If you are looking for an improved experience with your cannabis, then you might already know about the pipe. It is the next must-have thing for anyone who already passed the initiation steps into using cannabis for creative or relaxation purposes. Finding out the available options in pipes would be the first thing you probably do before realizing they are many and they look alike. People facing this dilemma should consider picking the glass pipe for its functionality benefits, and after doing that, it would pay to also look at these glass cannabis pipe buying tips for beginners.
Consider the Size of the Pipe
When checking the size, you should have some perspective. The size matters as much as its proportionality to the pipe. For example, if you are looking for a small size, then you also want to see the smallness relative to something else, such as being easy to handle when you are traveling or small because of the content it holds. The use will matter when you are picking size because something tiny will work well when you intend to make it a tabletop unit and you want to share with friends when they come over. The size influences the experience you get when smoking, and the large one may be impractical for someone used to a small one.
Dry or Water Option
The other thing is to pick a side with the percolation. The hand pipe is the dry one, and it does not require a reservoir for water. You will, therefore, notice the pipe’s small size. Meanwhile, the pipes only work well for people looking for harsher hits, since they have no cooling options. The water pipes are the opposite, and they will bubble when you are smoking, and they have spacing for water and percolation of the smoke as it passes through the water. If you hear someone calling it a bong, then it’s because of the percolators. Rate your bong based on its filtration capabilities as that affects the dose of cannabinoids you get per hit.
The pipe’s functionality will rely on the design too. There can be production glass and art pieces in your list of choices. The former will consider functionality above everything else in its construction and is therefore very practical. It is the glass pipe you probably see in most stores, and it would be the best for you when you are starting out. You can get a range of percolators or just one, and you also get a decent beaker or straight shape base and the units comes with a modular design. You can detach some of its parts. Meanwhile, the other type, the art piece, is for the people seeking an aesthetic appeal and it may not be as functional as the first one. The concentration is mainly on the materials used and the design.
Consider the brand and the reputation of the manufacturer as that will tell you more about the quality of manufacturing. Thin glass is easy to break, but thick glass might be too heavy. New technologies allow manufacturers to follow all crucial steps when blowing glass to ensure their glass pipe remain strong and durable.
