Glass Hand Pipes 101
Hand pipes have been around since a surprising 500 BC, commonly as a ceremonial tool or for smoking tobacco and herbs. Their design has hardly changed since; there is no need to reinvent the wheel. The difference is most tobacco pipes are made of wood or other materials. Generally, glass hand pipes are dry-smoke pieces, which means there is no water diffusion, but there are exceptions. The bowl, where the herb is packed, is one of the basic parts of a glass hand pipe. The carb is a small hole that, when covered, allows the user to control the smoke build-up. Lastly, the mouthpiece is where smoke is inhaled. To use glass hand pipes, pack the bowl chamber, cover the carb, ignite what you are smoking with a flame, inhale, and remove your finger from the carb to clear the smoke.
