Dabbing requires special equipment, a special type of cannabis byproduct, and very specific procedures.

No Rolling Paper? Try These Nine Alternatives

Everybody reaches the last paper sometime. Even those who prefer joints and smoke every day – those people you’d think always have a generous stash of papers in one of the kitchen cabinets – run out of rolling papers now and then. Usually at the least convenient time: like when two feet of snow have fallen in the last 24 hours and they’d need a snowmobile to get to a headshop or convenience store. In situations like that the issue becomes one of finding or creating alternative ways to enjoy your cannabis. In this post, the team at the 710 Pipes in Denver examines eight rolling paper alternatives.

How to Measure Bong Size and Gender

If you ever plan on upgrading your existing bong it will be important to know both its joint size and gender. Otherwise, you may wind up with a new bowl that doesn’t fit.

So, if you buy a new bowl or stem from our online head shop and you don’t take the gender into consideration you’ll wind up having to return it for another. Read on to learn how to identify the gender of your bong and how to measure the joint size.

Getting Unhigh: What Should You Do?

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.

Statistics on Kratom Use and Where It’s Legal

How many kratom users are there in the US? That depends on who you ask. If you ask researchers from New York University they’ll tell you the number is around two million. They base this on the National Survey on Drug Use and Health which they conduct every year to try and get an idea about trends in drug use and abuse. On the other hand, if you ask the American Kratom Association, an advocacy group for kratom importers, their number is much higher: 16 million. At the 710 Pipes headshop in Denver, we don’t have a way to determine which of these wildly disparate numbers is correct. But we suspect that, as with most things, the truth lies somewhere in the middle.

What are Pipe Screens and Do You Need One?

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.

Heady Glass vs. Scientific Glass: Which is Right for You?

In your parent’s day (or your grandparent’s day as the case may be) cannabis was a controversial subject. People who enjoyed a good buzz had to buy their weed on the streets of Denver from some very shady types and roll joints that could be easily concealed and smoked once they got to a safe place, like their friend’s attic. Bongs were rare because they were difficult to hide from parents and po-lice alike and difficult to transport in a safe, discreet fashion.

Glass Bongs vs. Silicone Bongs: How Do They Compare?

For 50 years, glass bongs have ruled the roost, and why not? Glass bongs are attractive, effective, and – if they’re properly cared for – durable as all get out. In recent years, however, other materials have emerged to try and claim a place at the table including acrylic, metal, and bamboo.
