Glass smoking accessories have remained a constant in the dry herb and concentrate world since the first plant was trimmed, and for good reason. Enjoying draws from a high-quality glass pipe (or rig) is the best way to experience the full flavor of your dry herb or concentrate material. We’re stocked with elite glass units designed to enhance your sessions and deliver the most out of each hit.
Vapor.com has a wide selection of glass smoking accessories, so whether you are looking for one-hitters or spoon pipes to concentrate rigs and water pipes, we have your needs covered. But with so many options to choose from, it can be a little confusing to pick the right one. For example, did you know borosilicate glass is the most popular among smokers because it is robust? Borosilicate glass is the best glass option if you want to travel with your piece due to its durability and shatter-resistant nature The world of glass smoking accessories is full of these nuances, let’s outline our glass smoking accessory offerings to help you pick the best one for your needs.
One-hitter pipes are the smallest option for any of our glass pipe smoking accessories. Also known as a "bat," "oney," or "tay," one-hitters offer an easy way to pack and enjoy dry herbs almost anywhere as they feature a straightforward design. If you're an on-the-go smoker, keep in mind a silicone or metal option might be the best for you based on durability. If you prefer to experience the full flavor of your dry herbs, a glass pipe is the way to go. The K. Haring Taster is a great option because it's made from borosilicate glass, so it's more robust, has a built-in ash catcher, and a larger bowl.
Ah yes, the granddaddy of smoking pipes and rigs. Spoon pipes feature a basic design of a top bowl, carb, and mouthpiece for ease-of-use that won’t intimidate beginner smokers. The length of the mouthpiece will dictate how smooth your draws are, as more time from lighter to your lips means a cooler and less harsh draw. The advantage spoon pipes offer is they're easy to conceal and are great for outdoor vapor consumption.
They can fit in almost any purse, case, or pocket. A spoon pipes like the Higher Standards Spoon will fit nicely in the hand, have a marble finish for grip, and lie flat on surfaces without titling so you won't spill your smoking materials. A few other terms you should also know include Sherlocks and Chillums. The biggest difference between these two and a spoon pipe is their design, but their overall functionality is the same.
Steamrollers are like one-hitters...multiplied by 10. The bowl of a steamroller is often on the top of the pipe, with a straight-neck design flowing to an open-end that will act as the carb. Steamrollers deliver substantial draws and should be enjoyed by experienced dry herb smokers. A huge advantage of a steamroller is it's easy to clean, thanks to its shape.
For those that want a smooth draw every time, bubblers are a great option. A perk of using a glass bubbler is the experience of a beaker, in an easy-to-use, portable bubbler. During your inhale, the smoke is pulled through a water chamber, creating bubbles that help smooth your smoke. Design-wise, bubblers are the same as a spoon pipe, just with more room for water. To find a bubbler that fits your needs, keep an eye out for the bowl size if you want a straight tube or beaker style, the water chamber size, and a solid base. A popular eye-catching bubbler is the K.Haring Bubbler, which offers smooth, water-cooled draws.
Usually found in the classic “beaker” shape, water pipes are some of the most popular glass smoking devices. The most common type of water pipe features a large water chamber with some kind of percolator, long neck, and exterior bowl for dry herb. Water pipes deliver large clouds without the harshness one might expect from so much smoke. A robust glass water pipe with optimal filtration is the K.Haring Water Pipe. It features a 7-slit showerhead percolator to deliver cool, smooth smoke and includes an ice catcher & splashguard.
As concentrate use rose in popularity, users quickly realized a “water pipe for concentrates” was the best way to session. Rigs deliver highly concentrated vapor draws that are cooled through moisture-conditioning and make for an overall smoother experience. If you are a concentrate user looking for a traditional way to session, the rig should be your go-to.
Although there are a few nuances you should know about when you are picking out your rig, like deciding between a glass, silicone, or electric concentrate rig. The size also matters because it affects your smoking experience. For example, a small rig like the EYCE Spark ProTeck has tighter passages and chambers, delivering a drag-free pathway for vapor to travel down. While a mini dab rig delivers very concentrated draws because they lack enough area for vapor to take up before you inhale.
