Bongs function to filter smoke and provide a smooth and cool rip, and this thick glass bong is an excellent beginner pipe that doesn’t break the bank. It offers a bent neck to prevent splash-back as well as a showerhead perc to further cool smoke.

Just mind your dose—cool smoke makes it easy to take big hits!

Ash catchers are attachments that connect to the joint of a pipe. Their main purpose is to add diffusion, but they also keep the main chamber of the pipe as clean as possible. Novice or seasoned smoker, who doesn’t love cooler, cleaner hits? These six-arm ash catchers make cleaning a breeze—simply remove the attachment and run it through your cleaning routine.
Just keep in mind the size, weight, and angle of the ash catcher in relation to the height and weight of the main pipe. If the ash catcher is too big or at the wrong angle, it can cause the piece to tip over.
Zanfirico Glass Bubbler

Zanfirico Glass Bubblers are designed to be portable without sacrificing the function of a standard water pipe. They can be used with water for clean, filtered rips—or dry if you don’t have water on-hand. This festive bubbler is about 7.5″ tall, made with USA glass, and has the perfect shape to keep water from splashing. Beady glass surrounds the pipe to give you a snug grip.

Phuncky Feel Tips are used for keeping those unwanted “Scooby Snacks” out of your mouth while smoking a joint or blunt. They’re great for beginners because you don’t have to roll your own filter. They’re reusable and very easy to clean.
Color-Changing Glass Spoon
Spoons or hand pipes are the quintessential pipe, constructed from simple, sturdy glass that’s great for when you’re just starting out. They’re easy to control by using the carb hole, which functions to let air into the pipe so that smoke can easily be cleared when released. These pipes usually range from 3-7 inches long.
This gold-fumed spoon pipe is handmade using borosilicate glass and is designed with portability and durability in mind. A travel-ready size of about 5″ long, it can easily be stashed in a pocket or your favorite fanny pack.
