If you’ve ever watched “Ted 2” you’re familiar with the scene where Ted, Johnny, and their lawyer Sam are discussing particularly potent pot strains including one named “How long has that van been there?” and another called “Can you help me get home?” It’s a hilarious sendup of the sometimes unpleasant reactions people have when they’ve taken too many hits off the heady glass or smoked weed that’s just too potent for their particular makeup. In this post we decided to look at steps you can take should you find yourself a little too high.
If there were no pipe screens and you loaded your heady glass bowl with weed and sparked it up you’d inhale a bunch of gnarly detritus from the buds. The screen is what prevents that from happening. Most pipe screens are made of brass or stainless steel, although in some high-end bongs, the screen may be fashioned from something exotic like titanium or quartz. Without pipe screens, smoking herb would be a decidedly different experience than it is now. So we’ve put together this short guide in order to give some props to the humble screen.
People come to our Denver headshop all the time wondering why they go through so much weed. The first thing we tell them is that they may not be inhaling correctly!
Our head shop knows all about inhaling weed firsthand. There are two main mistakes people make when trying to inhale weed:
Everyone wants to know how to pack the perfect bowl. If you’re looking for the best high- and to get the most out of your weed- a well-packed bowl is vital.
Unfortunately, you probably have some bad habits to kick (ahem, overpacking!). There’s also probably some extra effort you need to start putting in, like using a screen or fully grinding your weed.
Luckily, we’ve broken down all the dos and don’ts of packing a bowl so you can become an expert in no time!
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!
There are certain questions that have vexed even the smartest among us since the dawn of time: Where did we come from? What happens after we die? Which is better, a glass pipe or a bong? While we don’t have definitive answers to the first two questions, our status as purveyors of custom glass pipes and bongs positions us pretty well to try and tackle the third question.

THE TOP FIVE REASONS TO CLEAN YOUR BONGS & DENVER GLASS PIPES
Residue is unsafe
Besides being unsightly to look upon, accumulated residue can pose dangers for smokers. A significant amount of buildup may result in a fire when you cover up the carb, possibly burning your fingers and your mouth.
This hazard is totally preventable if you watch what you’re doing.
Maintain good hygiene
Take a puff, pass. Sharing your custom glass pipes is part of the group smoking experience. And this has been the case throughout the bong’s significant and smoldering history.
There are so many reasons for herb smokers to love grinders. As our smoke shop team outlined in an earlier guide to grinders, a quality grinder can keep you from wasting your time, money and flower. However, a dirty grinder doesn’t do you many favors.

Thankfully, our online smoke shop team has put together a few tips on the best ways to clean your grinder, so you can get back to your smoking session sooner with a clog-free grinder and an equally clear head.

Coronavirus disease 2019, or COVID-19, was officially deemed a pandemic on Wednesday by the World Health Organization. The international outbreak of coronavirus has already claimed the lives of sixty Americans and more than 6,000 individuals around the world.
The spread of COVID-19 has unduly affected some regions and high-risk demographics, but even lower-risk individuals have taken serious steps to reduce their odds of infection. Schools and workplaces across America have shut down indefinitely to prevent the spread of COVID-19, and individuals across the nation have begun self-quarantining, resulting in national shortages of high-demand supplies like water, soap, and toilet paper.

Artifacts that celebrate this extensive and interesting history are now in vogue, and demand top dollar by tobacco enthusiasts and antique collectors alike.
Glass as we know it has been around for hundreds of thousands of years. There is so many things that we do in our day to day lives that wouldn’t be possible without it. For instance, waking up in the morning going into the kitchen, turning on the light, making yourself a cup of coffee and turning on your television to get the daily news while simultaneously checking your phone to see if you missed anything over night.
