A pipe for smoking cannabis, a handheld smoking device similar to a tobacco pipe, although cannabis pipes have evolved into beautiful glass pieces with carburetors (that little hole on the side) for controlling airflow. A pipe is also called a bowl or a glass piece and has four main parts, which are the main bowl where you put the cannabis flower, the chamber that fills with smoke, the mouthpiece to draw in smoke, and the carburetor.

To use a pipe, you should break up or grind your weed and pack your bowl but don’t pack it so tight that it is difficult to draw air through it. Cover the carburetor when you first light the edge to take a hit. Always show common courtesy and don’t torch the entire bowl with one hit (which is called “taking all the greens”), but rather discreetly light over one side or corner of the bowl and save some green for the next toker.
