How To Pick a Quality Piece of Glass

For the discerning marijuana consumer, a proper piece of glass is essential to enjoyment. There are times when a small pipe that fits in the palm of your hand is the right choice, and other moments when you are looking for a statement piece, a bong or bubbler that is well-crafted, aesthetically pleasing and optimally functional. There are numerous factors to keep in mind when shopping for the perfect glassware. Which type of device is the best fit for your lifestyle? Is it important to you that you buy from a local artisan?

Are you buying a glass water pipe for everyday use? Or are you looking for more of a special occasion bong? Do you want to mix and match accessories? How committed are you to cleaning and care? Are you clumsy? Are your friends? Seriously, it should be a consideration. Consider glass thickness, compactness, and grip when making a decision.

Ask yourself if you want a piece of colorful glass that appeals to your individuality, or if your style leans more toward the mad scientist end of the glass spectrum. Small pipes are portable; you can keep them in your pocket, glove compartment, or the basket of your bike. If you like to smoke outside surrounded by awe-inspiring nature, a simple glass pipe will work well for you. Large, elaborate units are best kept at home, but if you’re in the market for something flashy or intriguing, there are almost limitless possibilities.
