What is The Point of A Silicone Pipe?

It seems like silicone pipes are everywhere. They have filled vape pen shops, head shops, and are one of the first things you see when visiting vape sites. While it may seem odd that a smoker would choose silicone over glass, there are a lot of great benefits that silicone pipes offer that glass pipes simply cannot match!

Silicone Pipe Durability

One of the strongest benefits silicone pipes offer over glass is that they are far more durable. The only way to damage a silicone pipe is to put it over a blow-torch or to attack it with a sharp edge. Glass, on the other hand, can be shattered in a number of different ways.

The durability of silicone is attractive to both beginners who are getting used to smoking and to veterans that are tired of breaking glass pipes all the time. If you want a pipe that is hard to break, then a silicone pipe might be in your future!

Silicone Pipes Are Affordable

Silicone is a cheap, mass-manufactured material that does not require an expert glass-smith to create a pipe. This means that silicone pipes will almost always undersell their glass counterparts. This is especially evident when comparing larger glass pieces, like bongs, which can run hundreds of dollars.

An amazing, full-sized silicone bong can be found under $50 on a regular basis. If you want a full-fledged smoking experience without the full-fledged price, then choose a silicone pipe!

Silicone Pipes Are Easy to Clean

The cleaning process is another area where silicone pipes shine. They can usually be taken apart to make it easy to reach hard-to-clean areas and to tackle stubborn residue. Silicone pipes also will not break during the cleaning process, even if you boil them!

Glass pipes, on the other hand, most commonly break during a cleaning when handling is at its most precarious. They are also more limited in the ways that you can clean them safely, too. For example, boiling a glass pipe is a huge gamble, and failing to follow any number of steps that will result in your pipe shattering. Glass also gets slick when it is wet, which is why the majority of glass pipe accidents happen during the cleaning process.

If you want a pipe that is easy to clean and maintain, then a silicone pipe is the choice for you!

Glass and Silicone Pipe Smoking Experience

Both silicone and glass pipes offer amazing smoking experiences that keep fans coming back for more. While many glass-enthusiasts swear by the crisp flavor offered by a glass pipe, silicone pipes offer a comparable experience that many have grown to love. This is especially true of silicone pipes that have glass pieces in them (like glass bowls and glass vapor paths).

Should I Get a Glass or Silicone Pipe?

There is not a wrong answer to this question! You should get the pipe that best fits what you are looking for out of your smoking experience. Glass pipes are not without their advantages, and which advantages you decide to choose will be entirely up to you. What we recommend is trying both glass and silicone pipes, and seeing which pipe is a better fit into your smoking lifestyle!
