People have been smoking hash for many centuries. Hash was first used by the Native Americans because they thought it had soothing and relaxing properties. Although nowadays smoking hash is banned in most of the countries, there are places where smoking hash is allowed. More often than not, hash is smoked with the help of a hash pipe. For smokers, buying a hash pipe may turn out to be a great gift. The hash pipe is of several types; there are some that prevent the hash from going into the lungs, so it will actually function as a filter. Depending on the quality of the hash pipe and the hash itself, the smoker can take pleasure.
The hash pipe is made from different materials, such as wood, blown glass, metal fittings, ceramic, stone, bamboo and other materials. Hash pipes vary great in shape and size as well, and most of them are handmade. The common thread between them is that all the pipes have a receptacle of some sort, called a stem. The stem is placed between the receptacle and a mouthpiece. The smoking material is placed in the receptacle and affected with a heat source while air is drawn though the bowl and stem to the user. The glass hash pipe will provide you with a feeling of freshness and a stronger taste of hash. Blown-glass hash pipes are often intricately and colorfully designed.
The hash pipe is a great idea for a gift. What you need to keep in mind is the quality of the pipe. The most original and special hash pipes can cost you up to several hundreds of dollars. If you are not very knowledgeable, you can always ask for the advice of the shop assistant, or if you want to buy from an online shop, you can read the reviews of the hash pipe model.
