This is going to be quite the change from a lot of the articles you’re use to reading on this site. Instead of talking about the highest in quality products that usually come with a price tag that’s reflective of that, I’m going to talk about the cheapest option out there. Many people don’t have the budget for expensive pipes and vaporizers that break the bank. Especially when it comes to cannabis tourists that are visiting states to try out some recreational cannabis, but have nothing to smoke it with. While some have mastered the art of rolling it can be pretty difficult for a new smoker. At the same time I know we’ve all been so desperate that we’ve made a makeshift pipe from a pop can or apple. Those days are over however, thanks to these incredibly cheap pipes that a company called Hollow Pointz is making.
I’ll admit that these pipes are not something that I would personally probably ever be willing to use, but it might just be perfect for a different niche of smoking tourists. The design couldn’t be more simple, but at the same time it is executed very well. The piece is essentially a strip of aluminum rolled up into a cone. There’s a little bead at the end that serves as a mouthpiece, but otherwise it’s a simple as loading and lighting. You’ve got to be careful where you hold on to it as to not burn your fingers, but it works fine. The pipe is three inches long and easily small enough to fit into your pocket. It’s can also easily be bent and disposed of for sticky situations. The Hollow Pointz pipe is made of 36 gauge aluminum that is supposedly safe to smoke from.
The pipe comes in a small plastic tube that can be used to retain the smell and also to keep it from being crushed in your pocket. It also comes with a little toothpick tool to poke at your herbs. This little pipe certainly isn’t what I would choose to smoke from, but I do see how it could be advantageous to someone that wants to conserve their weed and doesn’t have a piece to do so. Not everyone can be a master blunt roller so this appeals to those people that are just dipping their toes in the water of cannabis culture. Lots of dispensaries have first time patient goody bags that include a cheap bowl or sell some incredibly thin pipes for around five dollars, but if that sounds like more than you want to spend this is the next level of pot penny pinching.
