Glass chillum pipes in assorted colors

Chillums are the most overlooked smoking device. But there’s no good reason for it!

Every stoner should own at least one chillum. They should be a staple in the arsenal of all potheads, whether you smoke once a month or don’t stay sober for more than 5 minutes at a time.

Buy a chillum from our online head shop and you’ll never look back. Keep reading to learn about the impressive benefits of the almighty chillum!

Discretion Is Their Middle Name

A chillum is small enough to fit in your pocket with ease. Because of its sleek and sturdy design, you can take it from point A to point B without worrying about it breaking in your bag or forgetting it in your car.

Don’t be mistaken- these glass pipes can take a thorough beating!

If you know you’ll desperately need a puff later on in the day but won’t have time to pack a bowl, load up your chillum and hit the road. Your weed will stay put if you pack it tightly enough and keep it upright.

There is one downside to their discretion, though. As easy as chillums are to hide from others, they’re just as easy to hide from yourself. And we all know what it’s like to look for something while high.

Do yourself a favor and have a dedicated spot to put your chillum after each use!

Chillums come in an unlimited number of designs and can be made out of many different materials.

A lot of people prefer clay chillums because they cool down quickly, meaning you can take a hit and then store it almost immediately afterward.

Your friends will all ask you where you got your custom glass pipes when you buy from our Denver head shop!

Do Your Wallet a Favor

Chillums are one of the cheapest ways to smoke. So hop on that!

Since there isn’t a carb, you don’t waste any smoke while taking a hit. Although this takes some time to get a grip on, ultimately you can get higher faster without losing a penny’s worth of weed.

They also tend to cost a bit less than bowls, and much less than bongs. Not bad for being custom glass pipes!

Between saving money on flower and the chillum itself, this is a great device if you’re on a budget. And let’s be honest. Considering how much weed we smoke, aren’t we all?

Clean With Ease

Tired of smoking out of a dirty bong that you can’t be bothered to clean?

You won’t have that problem with a chillum. If you keep up with cleaning it after each use, you can avoid the nasty burnt taste of smoking out of something dirty.

For daily maintenance, just run a Q-tip through your pipe. It’s that easy. Do yourself a favor and make it part of your routine. Make the weed gods proud.

Every once in a while you should perform a deep clean. There are two main ways to deep clean a chillum.

Method 1: Carefully pour boiling water through your pipe while holding it with tongs.

Method 2: Soak your pipe in rubbing alcohol for a couple of hours and then rinse it thoroughly.

Continue the Legacy

Chillums are believed to have originated in either India or Africa around the 18th century, made out of cow and bull horns. They have also been found in South America.

The simple design became popular in the West thanks to the hippies in the 60s and 70s. Chillums were introduced to the hippies by Indian Sadhus who believed that smoking was a way to grow closer to the god Shiva.

Treat your chillum with respect- this device was used in ancient religious rituals. It’s an honor to be able to use it.

Different Strokes for Different Folks

Chillum size is a vital factor that changes your smoking experience. Typically speaking, the shorter your chillum is, the hotter the smoke will be.

When pipes are longer, the smoke gets cooled down a bit on its way to your mouth.

Short chillums aren’t the best for beginners because they can get too hot for a novice to handle and smoke correctly.

If you’re just starting out, aim for a 6-inch chillum. Even though it’s not as discreet, you can work your way down inch by inch as you perfect your hits.

For the daily stoner, a 4.5-inch glass hand pipe will bring the heat you crave!

Our head shop has so many different chillums that you should have no problem finding one that suits your needs.

Look Forward to Easy Use

If you wake up 10 minutes before you need to be at work but you still like to wake and bake, the chillum will quickly become your best friend.
