Let’s get into how a medical marijuana pipe works

There are three parts to every hand pipe:

  1. A mouthpiece: Obviously, this is where your mouth goes to inhale the medicine
  2. The bowl: This is where you place your ground cannabis 
  3. A carb hole: This is an airflow hole that can be covered and uncovered while using the pipe

Basically, the cannabis is heated in the bowl with a flame and inhaled through the mouthpiece. 

Why choose a pipe to take medical marijuana?

Why are glass pipes so popular with medical marijuana users? Well, hand pipes are super easy to carry and use, for starters. They are also:

  • Durable
  • Clean
  • Less harsh than rolling a joint
  • Easy to control dosage

It’s easy to see how a well-made glass pipe would be a go-to option for a beginner. 

Featuring a TON of local glass-blowing artists, you’ll have hundreds of options to choose from when shopping for a medical marijuana hand pipe, down to the color, pattern, shape, and even right-handed versus left-handed carb holes!
