Looking to upgrade your water pipe for smoother, cleaner hits? Rox Glass Diffusion Stones might be for you! They’re inexpensive and will work with any pipe, and they will completely change your smoking experience.
Rox are made of art glass, which is much softer than the borosilicate glass used in pipes – meaning it’s very unlikely that they will scratch. They’re non-toxic, colorless and impermeable to water or odors.
HOW DO THEY WORK?
When you fill your pipe with Rox and water, and you draw smoke through it, the smoke forms bubbles. The water cools and cleans these bubbles, smoothing the smoke. The smaller the bubble, the more surface area it has. The more surface area is exposed to water, the faster your smoke cools.
According to Rox, products that are perfectly round can never leave less than 26% empty space no matter how tightly they’re packed. Rox aren’t perfectly round, so they pack together much more tightly. You get finer bubbles without compromising the safety or durability of your pipe.
And they are incredibly easy to use! You just insert the downstem into your water pipe, pour the Rox from their canister down the neck of your water pipe…gently, so as not to break the downstem. Then, add the same amount of water you typically use when you smoke. Now enjoy your clean hits!
An added bonus is that you’ll have to clean your pipe less often. Since Rox are the first thing the smoke hits, resins and tars will stick to them first. When you pour them out of your pipe, most of that will come out as well. Rox suggests freezing the stones for an even cooler smoke.
The size of the Rox you want to use depend on the size of your pipe, and come in large, medium and small canisters at reasonable prices. Come visit us and see what the fuss is about! If you’ve used diffusion stones before, share your tips and tricks on our Facebook page.
