Part of what we love to do at The Glass House is help you find THE piece – the one that will be your favorite for years to come. Come in to the shop and we are happy to talk you through selection, but this is a great place to start. In our last post, we looked at which pieces work best based on your smoking habits. To make a wise investment, it’s important to take into consideration where and how often you smoke. If you missed it, feel free to catch up here.
The other important factor to consider is what you like to smoke.
If you prefer flower…
Glass pipes or water pipes are your obvious choices, and bubblers are a nice medium. Like we discussed last time, a water pipe will cool the smoke the most out of these options and will be more beneficial to your lungs and pack more of a punch.
If you prefer flower and are interested in vaporizing rather than smoking, you have a few options. The following are just a few examples engineered specifically for flower, so they are generally more likely to provide the quality of vapor you want than a “one-size-fits-all” sort of vape.
- VaporBrothers Hands Free – tabletop vaporizer for flower
- Da Buddha – tabletop vaporizer for flower
- Arizer Solo – portable vaporizer for flower
- Pax – portable vaporizer for flower
If you prefer essential oils and/or concentrates…
The potency of essential oils and concentrates is undeniable. They may be tough to get your hands on and more work to make, but many would argue they’re worth the extra effort. In this case, you want either an oil rig or a vaporizer. We cover oil rigs in our Dabbing 101 post, so check it out!
Most vapes do really well with essential oils, even those engineered for multiple types of product. The Cloud is an example of a portable vaporizer that can only be used with oils, but the following are pieces that can be used with flowers, oil, or concentrates. If you like to switch off, these would be perfect options for you. Remember when using herbs with these, it’s important to make sure they are finely ground.
- DaVinci – portable
- Atmos Raw – portable
- Extreme Q – tabletop
- Volcano – tabletop
- Plenty – tabletop
We hope this helps you when you’re considering investing in a piece, whether it’s your first or fiftieth! Stop by the shop anytime and we’ll talk you through it.
Everyone has a different first-time smoking experience, but 9 times out of 10, it happens with someone else. Maybe you have a friend who has a water pipe, and they teach you how to use it. Eventually, though, you give in and you want your own. Then, the inevitable question…which piece is right for me? Glass pipe? Water Pipe? Bubbler? Oil Rig? Vaporizer pen? Tabletop vaporizer? …All of the above?
So many options! Lucky for you, whether you’re a seasoned smoker or brand new, we’re here to help.
First, and most importantly, consider your habits. How often do you smoke? Where do you smoke? And where and how often do you want to smoke?
If you’re an occasional smoker who lives alone, with roommates who don’t mind it, or with neighbors who aren’t too nosey, a glass pipe is an inexpensive and effective investment. It’s the simplest method – pack it, light it up, and smoke it. It gets the job done.
Unfortunately, a regular glass pipe does nothing to soften the smoke as it enters your lungs. If you smoke more often than once or twice a week (or even if you smoke less), it may be beneficial to pick up a bubbler or a water pipe. The water cuts the smoke, causing less discomfort to your lungs. Plus, the effects of smoking through a water pipe are undeniably powerful.
However, if you need to be a bit more discreet with your smoking, a pipe isn’t going to do the trick. In this case, a vaporizer is definitely the piece for you. With a vaporizer of any size, scent won’t give you away. A pen is more discreet for obvious reasons – you can stash it just about anywhere, and you can bring it just about anywhere. Do you want to smoke at the movies, or on a road trip? A pen will give you the flexibility you need. If you don’t plan to travel with it, then a tabletop will be much more potent.
A vaporizer is also a good option if you smoke on the reg. The vapor is much healthier for your lungs than smoke, even if the smoke is cut by water in a bubbler or water pipe.
