An Overview of the Different Kinds of Glass Pipes

March 5, 2020

Glass pipes come in a variety of shapes, sizes and smoking benefits—if you’ve spent most of your smoking experience with a spoon pipe, there’s a whole world of glass pipes out there to experience. At New Galaxy Gifts, we carry a huge variety of glass pipes in Orlando, FL, and our staff would be happy to help you find the right type for your needs.

Here’s an overview of some of the different kinds of glass pipes:

  • Chillum: This pipe is just a basic glass tube, where you pack the herb in one end and smoke it through the other. It’s one of the simplest types for on-the-go smoking.
  • Spoon: Spoon pipes are the most popular type of glass pipe in Orlando, FL. They have a spoon on one end to hold the herb, and a carburetor so you can inhale air along with the smoke to customize your experience. They are on the smaller side and can be transported easily.
  • Bong: If you’ve ever been to college (or seen a movie about college), chances are you know what a bong looks like. Bongs use water (and sometimes ice) to filter the smoke and offer a smoother smoking experience. They differ from water pipes because they’re made for a single user.
  • Water pipes: Like bongs, water pipes use water and/or ice to provide a smoke filter and a smooth inhalation. They are typically used by multiple people at once, and include hookah and dab rigs.
  • Steamroller: Steamrollers are glass tubes with sunken bowls, and are open on either end. The user inhales from the end farthest away from the bowl and covers the other end with their open hand. The steamroller does not mix the smoke with outside air, unlike pipes with traditional carburetors. This is considered a more “advanced” pipe.
  • Sherlock: If you’ve seen an image of Sherlock Holmes and his classic pipe, you can imagine what this one looks like—just in glass form. It has a bigger bowl than a spoon pipe, and a long, curved stem. This offers a dry smoke filter (and just looks cool).
  • Briar: Briar pipes are a variation on Sherlock pipes, with the bowl raised up from the end of the stem.
  • Monsoon: Monsoon pipes are like to-go bongs. It is designed to be spill-proof, so that you can enjoy the benefits of water filtration without worrying about dumping water at an inconvenient time.

Naturally, there are many more glass pipe varieties to try—ask us about what else is available!
