Frequently Asked Questions

We've compiled a list of the questions we get asked the most often. To jump to the section you're most interested in click on one of the links directly below.

Smoking

What is a joint?

Joints are rolled marijuana cigarettes. One requires, blades (papers), a gerrick, and scissors or a grinder (recommended) to roll a joint.

What is a grinder?

A cylindrical device that is used to grind the bud finely allowing it to burn more evenly.

What is a pipe?

A marijuana pipe has a bowl piece, which is where the cannabis is loaded. Next to this bowl piece you will generally find a small hole, called a carb. A carb allows the chamber to be cleared and while smoking from the pipe, you should hold your thumb over the hole and let it go when you stop inhaling. Some pipes do not have a carb. At the end of the pipe, you will find a hole where you place your mouth to inhale.

What is a Bong?

A bong (also water pipe, billy, bing, or moof) is a filtration device for smoking cannabis. Bongs, also known as water pipes, are often seen as the pinnacle of a smoker's paraphernalia collection. They are usually made of beautiful glass designs in intricate colors and shapes, but they can also be made from acrylic, bamboo, and ceramic. Smoking out of a bong is different than smoking out of a pipe or a rolling paper because of the large capacity of smoke that the chamber can hold. 

What is Borosilicate glass?

Don’t accept anything less than borosilicate glass. Borosilicate glass is far stronger than “soft” glass and has been used for everything from stovetop cookware to nuclear waste containment. Specialty glass for smoking and vaping cannabis should only be made from borosilicate glass. The high heat resistance glass makes the pipes, bongs and oil rigs more durable and less prone to heat sensitivity and thus possible breakages.

What is Scientific Borosilicate Glass

Scientific glassware is made for scientific laboratories as the name suggest, using borosilicate glass. Scientific glass is functional glassware as opposed to pieces of art.

What is Borosilicate Ornamental Glass

Ornamental borosilicate glassware refers to any glass containing a design and or specific color. These pieces are both functional and great conversation pieces. These pieces of art have been know to fetch 100’s of thousands of dollars at auctions.

Vaping

What are the different ways of vaping cannabis?

One can vape either cannabis herb or concentrates using the following vaping devices.

  1. Vape pen or vaporizer pen
  2. Portable vaporizer
  3. Desktop vaporizer
  4. Glass Rig

What is a vape pen?

A vape pen or vaporizer pen is a device that is used to inhale the aromatic vapors of a variety of types of materials. As the name suggests, the device is long and slender like a pen. There are many different types of vaporizer pens, including the dry herb vape pen, which is used with legal marijuana, tobacco, and dried botanical herbs; the wax vape pen, which is used with legal marijuana waxes, and herbal waxy concentrates; and the oil vape pen, which is used for essential oils and juice.

What is a portable vaporizer?

A portable vaporizer is cordless and meant for use on the go. These types run on rechargeable batteries that are replenished either by plugging the vaporizer into the wall, attaching it to a computer or USB charger with a USB cord, or plugging it into a cigarette lighter in a vehicle. A portable vaporizer is handheld, and much smaller in size than desktop vapes.

What is a desktop vaporizer?

A desktop vaporizer is a larger vape that is designed to rest on a table or desk. Most models require electricity for operation; however, a small number have battery packs that allow you to use the vaporizer for a set period of time without plugging it into the wall.

What is a glass rig?

Vapor rigs work on a water vapor system, so the smoke is more concentrated and pools together in a smaller chamber. The smoke is more concentrated, and since there is less combustion, there is not a need for an intense filtration system. Vapor rigs tend to have more detail on the visual aesthetics of the piece, and come in many elaborate decorative styles. With flower pieces, there is a combustion element involved, so filtration is super important to filter out any of the excess ash. Flower pieces are generally larger, because they require more space for the smoke to filter through and process.

Dabbing

What is Dabbing?

Dabbing is a new way of ingesting cannabis that involves highly concentrated preparations, known as dabs or butane hash oil (BHO).These hard, wax-like concentrates are made by extracting the crystals from the buds/flower. Dabs are popular because they often contain up to 70-90% THC, which is much more than the typical cannabis flower. Dabs are sometimes called butane honey oil, budder, shatter or wax.

How does dabbing work?

Dabs are usually smoked using a glass dab rig or vaporizer pen. When using a dab rig, a blowtorch is used to preheat the heating surface, which is referred to as a “nail”. The nail is usually made of titanium or glass. After the nail is heated, the concentrate is “dabbed” on the surface, resulting in a vapor that can be inhaled. The carb cap that makes it possible to dab marijuana concentrates at very low temperatures. This leads to a smoother, tastier, more pleasant experience than can be achieved with standard oil rigs.

What do you need to dab?

First, you need your concentrate (dab, wax) of your choice and a vaporizer (a) or glass dab (b) rig.

Vaporiser
A vaporizer is the simplest device used to heat to up concentrates and release its active ingredients. Either a vapor pens, portable vaporizers, and/or desktop vaporizers can be used. Vaporizers are best for the less experienced people new to dabbing.

Dab Rig (a.k.a Oil Rig)
Dab rigs are the connoisseur's choice for vaping offering fuller flavor and the best vaping experience. A dab rig refers to a pipe that is made specifically for vaping a concentrates, dabs. The dab rig has two main components; the globe and the nail. The nail is made of either glass, quartz or titanium. The globe piece houses the nail and contains the vapor. You will also need a tool referred to as a dabber which is a small rod that is made of either glass or metal that is used to scoop your concentrate dose and dab it onto the hot nail which is heated using handheld torch or electric nail.
