Are Silicone Pipes Dangerous

by: Chelsea O. | 09/22/20 4:01PM

With the popularity of smoking on the rise, it is no surprise to see other materials being used to create pipes and bongs. Typically, the majority of smokers prefer glass for their pipe or bong of choice. This is due to the fact glass has non-reactive properties, making it so your last hit will still be as good as the first (as long as you properly maintain your device). However, the downfall to glass is how fragile they are, and many smokers have dealt with the accidental drop that has ruined their favorite piece. To help combat this issue, companies began to use other materials to create more durable pipes, with the most common alternative to glass being silicone.

What is the point of a pipe screen

by: Colby M. | 08/10/20 2:30PM

If you have ever used a smoking pipe, chances are you have heard the term ‘pipe screen.’ If you have not, no worries. Pipe screens are small cylindrical mesh-like accessories that are inserted into your bowl to tamp down on clogs and scooby snacks. Pipe screens are usually made from brass or stainless steel and come in large packs. You can also find glass pipe screens as well. Large packs are great for pipe screens because they get replaced frequently between a certain number of smoking sessions. You might be wondering, what is a scooby snack? Scooby snacks refer to small chunks of herb that accidentally get sucked into the neck or mouthpiece of a smoking pipe forcing the user to unclog their pipe or accidentally inhale them. Either way, they can be super annoying to deal with. With a pipe screen, you can prevent scooby snacks from occurring. In the next section we will break down the pros and cons of utilizing pipe screens to improve your smoking experience.
