Nothing can kickstart excitement like having a new toy that fits your lifestyle and mood, so let’s talk chillums!
What Is a Chillum?
Chillums are straight, conical-shaped glass pipes that have an end-to-end channel. They are also referred to as bats 🦇 or one-hitters.
Chillums have enjoyed popularity in the past several years. Many people enjoy adding a chillum to their selection of items they use to enjoy their favorite herbs.
Thousand of years ago in India, holy men and Hindu monks favored using chillums. This was before the arrival of tobacco in that part of the world. Chillums were often used as part of a meditation or spiritual ritual across Asia and Eastern Europe🌍.
Chillums can be made from several materials. Wood chillums enjoy great popularity. Many people choose clay versions because they offer a quick cooling ability. For those who want something flashier, they can choose from chillums made from glass, stone, and stainless steel.
Your average hand pipe may do the job, but chillums provide a more potent hit each time you indulge in your greens.
Unlike many other pipes, chillums do not contain a carb hole typically used to regulate the air that flows to the mouthpiece.
When a person smokes from a pipe with a carburetor, they cover the carb with a finger or thumb. Doing so allow the airflow to easily flow into their mouth. Removing their finger allows the bowl to clear and all of the smoke to be inhaled.
Why Choose a Chillum Instead of a Hand Pipe?
As word spread in the past several years about chillums, many new customers became interested. A primary reason for wanting to check out a chillum is its reputation for delivering a truly strong rip.
Chillums are easy to pack with herbs. They offer a real no fuss, no muss option that gets you on the road to relaxation quickly.
Since chillums do not have a carb, the contents of your bowl will burn longer.
Firing Up Your Chillum
If you haven’t used a chillum before, no need to worry. Our simple steps will help you feel at ease after the first use.
Due to the smaller size of chillums, light 🔥 yours at an angle of about 45 degrees. This helps keep your dry herbs from falling out. Some people prefer to place a small, often round item in the bowl, such as a little nut.
Chillums are smaller than the average pipe. Because of this, you will get a limited number of hits from it. You can easily refill them as needed.
If you use a clay chillum, you will need to use either your closed fist or a small piece of cloth to act as a filter.
When you are ready to begin, place a small pile of your greens on a tray. Press the end of the chillum into the pile. Press the chillum with your finger to ensure that it sticks there.
Place your mouth over the mouthpiece and use your lighter to light the other end. Inhale lightly and slowly. This helps you avoid accidentally getting ash in your mouth.
