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.

How to Make a Gravity Bong: Our Smoke Shop’s Top Tricks

Updated on September 22nd 2023

A gravity bong is kind of like waterboarding for stoners, only better because it shreds your consciousness in a positive rather than negative way. With a gravity bong, a couple of bottles, H2O, and the laws of physics are used to produce Olympian rips that transport the stoner to previously unheard-of heights of THC-driven delight.

No one here at the online head shop knows exactly who came up with the gravity bong but it was obviously someone with a keen knowledge of both hydrology and stonology. Because bottles take many different shapes and sizes, gravity bongs (sometimes referred to as “geebs”) also take on myriad forms. But no matter the form, the principle behind this most creative of stoner innovations remains the same.

Our Smoke Shop’s Guide to the Perfect Bong Rip

Five Myths Associated with Buying from an Online Smoke Shop

Updated on July 19th 2023

Chances are, if you’ve smoked using a bong, you’ve also called it – or heard others call it – a water pipe. Same thing, both names a longstanding part of smoking culture. Call it what you will, it’s one of the most commonly used smoking implements amongst cannabis aficionados and has been since its humble 16th century birth in China the waning days of the Ming Dynasty.
A classic bong is made of different materials, like acrylic and glass. It entails an open pipe that’s fixed to a water chamber. An inlet is linked to the chamber allowing you to breathe in the tasty smoke. When the dried herb of choice is set and lit inside the bong’s bowl, the smoke cools and filters through the clean water before it is inhaled.
Why buy a bong from an online smoke shop? Because they’re reliable and practical smoking implements and a reputable online retailer won’t steer you wrong. Unlike other devices, a bong doesn’t need a rechargeable battery to work. Another big reason? The water inside the bong processes the smoke initially, eliminating impurities before you take a hit. Many people say hits are stronger and smoother, perfect for long sessions. Finally, it’s easy to clean and use.

Seven Water Pipe Styles and Their Biggest Advantages

Beaker Water Pipe
This style of water pipe, commonly known as the “beaker bong,” is named for its resemblance to the essential laboratory tool. Beaker bongs traditionally have wide bases. This means that they’re able to generate quite a bit of smoke – more than those with more narrow structures. This structure also makes them harder to knock over, meaning they’re an excellent choice to leave on your coffee table without worrying too much about breaks from the slightest bump. If structural stability is a major selling point for you, round base bongs with other shapes may be another good choice to consider.

How to Store Your Stash

Not too hot…

Avoid storing cannabis near anything that gives off heat. Mold and mildew grow most quickly in warm temperatures – especially in the range of 77° to 86° F. Keeping your stash somewhere cooler than this will go a long way toward preventing this type of contamination.  High temperatures can also damage the chemical composition of marijuana, potentially damaging terpenes that developed over months of mindful care. You’ll get a harsh, hot hit of smoke if you dry out your supply and damage these essential oils. So keep it someplace cool, and your throat will thank you.

Our Northglenn and Denver smoke shops (on Colfax and near D.U.) are packed with hundreds of quality vaporizers, pipes, water pipes, hookahs and so much more.

Expo! Expo! Read All About It!

At the 2018 Natural Products Expo, which took place last March in Anaheim, California, the latest and most innovative trends in holistic health were showcased. There it became clear how quickly the cannabidiol craze is taking hold of the beverage industry. From CBD soda, coffee blends, matcha and tea, the public demand for CBD has not gone unnoticed, and beverage makers have answered their call. As marijuana restrictions slowly fade with every election, the market for consumable cannabinoids of any variety is rising. In fact, in 2017 alone, the legal weed industry raked in more than $9 BILLION dollars in revenue. Since recreational weed became legal in the state of California, those blazing-high profits have skyrocketed further still.
