Of all industries, ours understands the importance of being “green” more than most! Thankfully, more and more opportunities are arising for us to smoke and toke while remaining environmentally friendly. If it’s from the earth, we should be able to enjoy it without hurting the earth. And we can!
Today we’re featuring a water pipe from the hillsides of Maui, Hawaii. I think we all know that Hawaiians have mastered the art of relaxation, and Hawaii was named the happiest state in America this year. Maybe the Maui Wowie Bootube has something to do with that?
The Maui Wowie Bootube is a bamBOO tube – made of black bamboo harvested from largest certified organic black bamboo farm in the western hemisphere. Maui Wowie calls it a 100% sustainable “Living Glass” water pipe and the only fully sustainable organic water pipe on the market. Maui Wowie did their research to discover this variety of black bamboo is naturally resistant to mold, mildew, cracking and water damage, making it an ideal choice for smoking.
The “green” aspect of the Bootube doesn’t end with the bamboo. Maui hand-harvested, organic beeswax seals the inside of the Bootube, and hempseed oil is used to finish the outside. You’ll find no inorganic, toxic or GMO materials in the Bootube. The bowl is crafted with standard clear milled glass-on-glass, but this can be upgraded with your choice of ten different bowls and customized branding.
We at The Glass House join Maui Wowie in encouraging you to burn green! Interested in the Bootube? Stop by and see us!

To follow up from our last post, hookahs are available here at The Glass House for rent or for purchase. Today, we want to discuss an accessory for the more health conscious hookah fans – the Xhale Steam Stones. Deemed “the next generation of hookah,” Xhale Steam Stones are tobacco-free and make vaporizing possible through a hookah, giving their users the best of both worlds – the opportunity to enjoy a hookah with friends and avoid the carcinogens that come with tobacco smoke.
But how is that possible, you ask? When you’re ready to enjoy your hookah, place the stones in your bowl and cover them with flavor syrup. The syrup comes in flavors similar to shisha – mint, guava, rose, cherry, bubble gum and a variety of mixes. Cover the bowl with foil as you would normally, and place your heated coals on top. After about two minutes, the intensity of the heat should subside and the stones should begin steaming. You’re ready to enjoy!
While the Xhale Steam Stones contain no tobacco, they do provide 0.05% nicotine to give you that lovely buzz.
At The Glass House, it’s not just our job to help you find the smoke that’s best for you, it’s our passion. So whether you crave smoke or an alternative, a portable piece or a desktop piece, glass or a vaporizer, come visit us in either one of our locations (Dallas and Lewisville) and talk through your options with us.
