Best Bubbler Pipes of 2020-Stoner’s Guide to Bubblers

Why A Bubbler?

You might be asking yourself, why should I get myself a bubbler? I already have a perfectly good bowl/ rolling papers, can a bubbler really be that much better? The answer is YES, a bubbler is much better, and without spitting too much mumbo jumbo at you, let me explain a few of the reasons I’ve come to find that a bubbler is the way to go.

Still Portable?- One of my favorite things about a bubbler is that a lot of the times it can be just as portable as a typical hand pipe. Sure you could opt for a larger bubbler with more percolators or if you want it to double as a dab rig, but many bubbler pipes aren’t much longer than the typical hand pipe, and the water filtration that you get from a bubbler makes them 10X smoother that any hand pipe.

Price?-Price is also something to think about when buying a new piece, and what I will say is that buying a nice hand pipe is not going to be much cheaper than buying a nice bubbler, and the difference in smoothness is unreal, definitely worth paying a couple extra bucks for if that’s the case.

Smoothness- Have I mentioned that a bubbler is smoother yet? Oh right, I have, well I’ll say it again for those that forgot! A bubbler Is going to be much, much smoother than any hand pipe out there, the water in the bubbler helps to filter out some of the harmful carcinogens, as well as cooling down the smoke, so you’re going to get a cooler, smoother hit every single time!!

That’s all the blabbering I’ll do about that, I’ve laid a few of the reasons I prefer bubblers, but whether you choose to like them is completely up to you!! Now lets get into the best bubbler pipes of 2019!! These are in no particular order and to make it easier for you guys I split them up by brand, so you can compare directly between brands as well as the other brands on this list!!

And If you’d like to take a look at some hand pipes, or even some bongs, feel free to check out the Best Weed Pipes of 2019, as well as the Best Bongs of 2019!

Mountain Jam Glass Company

Mountain Jam Glass company was founded in 2000 with a goal to make unique glass at the highest quality, and they go about this differently than most. Most glass companies have a warehouse with employed glassblowers that are instructed to make certain designs, but that’s not the case with Mountain jam Glass.

All of Mountain Jam’s glassblowers are self-employed and work from their own space, but they are solely responsible for designing and crafting each piece. Therefore, a piece from Mountain Jam Glass has that extra personal touch and you know your’re not getting a generic piece, it’s always going to be unique!

Fumed Hammer Bubbler ($176)

First up from Mountain Jam Glass we have a beautiful fumed hammer bubbler. This piece is visually stunning and contains just about every color you could imagine, there’s shades of blue, orange, yellow, green and more!

The beautiful thing about fumed glass is that it’s going to appear to change colors depending on the light that is reflecting off the piece, so it’s always going to have a unique look to it. This piece is a great size for a bubbler, it’s slightly longer than the average hand pipe, coming in at 8.5 inches long. As far as durability you want to avoid dropping this piece at all costs, it’s got a lot of weight in the front, so if it’s dropped the mouthpiece could snap fairly easily.

However, this bubbler was made using high quality boriscillate glass, and since each piece is individually handcrafted, exact colors and dimensions you see in the picture could vary slightly, but it’s what will make yours unique!!

If you’re interested in purchasing this pipe, feel free to do so at Grasscity, an authorized retailer!

Double Percolator Bubbler ($127)

Next up we’ve got a very interesting looking piece, a nice double percolator bubbler! This is no doubt a unique piece to add to any collection, and overall it’s a great bubbler. The yellow hue looks great, and since it’s fumed glass it’s going to appear to change color overtime as resin builds up inside. And since all Mountain Jam Glass is individually handmade, no pipe will change colors in the same way, so yours will always be unique!

Taking a hit from this bubbler is as smooth as can be, the two chambers make for great filtration, no harsh or hot hits whatsoever! This is another piece that due to its design, you’ve got to be very careful with it! Any meaningful falls could lead to the mouthpiece or even worse one of the chambers to break off, which I can assure you will not be a happy sight!!

This piece feels great when it’s in your hand, as you can see there’s the perfect amount of room for a hand to it in between the chambers, and overall it feels balanced.

Glass Mini Bubbler ($79.20)

Last up from Mountain Jam Glass we have a beautiful mini glass bubbler. This piece is also made using fumed glass, and I think the colors combined with the mushrooms just make this a really cool piece overall. Like I’ve mentioned about the other fumed glass pieces, this piece will appear to change colors over time as resin builds up inside, transforming your piece! Even the bowl is custom-made with great blue and green swirls!

This piece is actually much smaller than the pictures make it look, this thing is only 7 inches (17.8 cm) tall. It’s a great bubbler to travel around with, but remember it is glass, so don’t drop it! This bubbler is very well-made, it was made using high quality boriscillate glass, and it rips very smoothly as well.

Overall this is a great looking piece to add to the collection that will also give you years of smoking pleasure!

GRAV Labs

Grav Labs has been in the industry of creating glass pieces since 2004, and they’ve been pioneers in the industry all the while. Grav likes to take a simple approach to their glassmaking, adopting a “less is more” approach that makes for some beautifully simplistic pieces.

While it’s clear the quality is there, something you also get from Grav is affordability! It can be hard to find a quality pipe at a good price nowadays, but Grav tries to make it as easy as possible. They have a great selection of bongs, bubblers, hand pipes and more!

Upright Bubbler ($89.95)

First up from Grav Labs we have a nice little upright bubbler. Right off the bat you can see there isn’t much color on this piece, just the purple Grav Labs Logo. However, if you’d prefer this piece also comes in a black variation that has black accents on the downstem as well as the mouthpiece, but I prefer the clear because it’s easier to tell when you need to clean it!

This piece sits at 7 inches tall, so it’s not too big, but I also wouldn’t say it’s a good travel bubbler either, the mouthpiece and weight of this piece make it perfect for around the house and with friends. And when I mention the weight I don’t mean that it’s overly heavy, but it would not be an ideal piece for a hike, bike ride, etc.

This bubbler smokes great, it has a three hole downstem that makes for decent filtration, overall the hits should be fairly smooth! This bubbler would also make a good dab rig if you wanted to put a banger or nail on, it’s the perfect size and shape for ripping some dabs! This piece comes equipped with a 14mm female joint, and comes with a 14.4 mm male herb bowl.

Helix Bubbler ($87.99)

This is one of the crazier bubblers on this list, the helix bubbler. The way the bowl and downstem are made this bowl appears to fall into the hammer bubbler style, but what makes this bubbler unique is the “Venturi Chamber”, which is what creates the helix shaped smoke patterns I’m sure you’ll come to love. How the venturi chamber works is that there are actually three “micro holes” on the chamber that as you take a hit you pull in cold air through those holes, and when it combines with the hot smoke it makes for a visually stunning helix pattern!

The cold air being brought in helps cool down the smoke, and the X slitted downstem also provides for better filtration as well. This piece was made using thick boriscillate glass, and sits at around 5 inches tall and 8 inches long.

This is another one of those pieces that you must avoid dropping at all costs. The majority of the weight of this piece is on both the front and back, with only a little bit of glass connecting the two, so if you drop it I can guarantee that will be the first piece to break, so be careful.

Overall though this is a fantastic bubbler that smokes great and is sure to impress all of your friends at the sesh!

Hammer Style Bubbler ($49.95)

Last up from Grav Labs we have a simple little hammer style bubbler. This bubbler comes in at a very affordable price for its quality, and it comes in your choice of 10+ colors.

This pipe should fit all of your portability needs, it sits at 4 inches tall and just about 8 inches long, and it’s made using sturdy scientific glass! Taking a hit out of this bubbler is fairly smooth too, the X slits in the downstem provide for great filtration, and you’ll be pleased to find out this bubbler actually has a really deep bowl!!

Overall this is a great bubbler that will provide you with years of smoking pleasure! It’s still convenient but at the same time it’s much smoother than a hand pipe, and cheaper than a lot of them too! This bubbler is extremely easy to clean too, it’s simple on the inside and you’ll be able to see when it needs to be cleaned, then all you need to do is throw some iso alcohol in there and shake it clean!!

Mathematix

Mathematix Glass is a fairly new company, but they have burst to the top of the scene due to their awesome creativity. They use a lot of fumed glass, which is really popular because it appears to change colors, they also make glow in the dark pieces as well. And although they like to focus on creativity, the high quality glass is still there, every piece is made using thick, heat-resistant boriscillate glass!

Mathematix is perhaps most known for it’s themed pieces, which they are one of the best at making, only rivaled by Empire Glassworks in my opinion! Food is a very popular theme for Mathematix, with pieces like a strawberry spoon pipe, peach spoon pipe, ice cream bubbler and more.

Color Changing Hammer Bubbler ($49.99)

First up from Mathematix Glass we’re taking a look at a color changing bubbler! Now I said Mathematix was known for pieces like this, this one is a perfect example. This bubbler has a beautiful pink and yellow hue to it, but since it is color changing, as resin builds up inside it will appear to change colors, looking like a completely different bubbler.

This pipe is very simple, it’s got a regular fixed downstem, and is about 8 inches long, I’d say this is one of the more portable bubblers on this list. This bubbler has a flat bottom so it doesn’t tip, and there are three glass marbles on the side to provide better grip in your hand!

This bubbler really isn’t that much bigger than a lot of regular hand pipes, but being able to get that water filtration makes all the difference when it comes to smoothness. This bubbler is still really easy to clean, and when you do your colors will return to normal, and you’ll get to watch your piece transform all over again!!

Glow in The Dark Sherlock Bubbler ($70)

This is a great bubbler to add to any collection, now were taking a look at the Glow in The Dark Sherlock Bubbler. How many pieces do you see that glow in the dark? There might be same, but it’s certainly not very common, but when done well it is nothing short of amazing. This bubbler comes in 2 different colors, either orange or blue, both of which are going to have a nice bright color, especially in the dark!

This bubbler sits at 6.5 inches tall and is made from thick boriscillate glass, this bubbler is both sturdy and portable! This bubbler has a deep bowl, plenty of room for a nice sesh with your friends and this bubbler has maria rings on the neck which provide extra grip for holding.

You’ll have to be consistent about cleaning this piece, you won’t be able to see the inside so it’s going to be tough to be able to tell when a cleaning is needed, I’d say at least once a week though as a minimum!

Hand Grenade Hammer Bubbler ($155)

Next up from Mathematix is a bubbler that will surely blow all of your friends away, the Hand Grenade Bubbler. I bet you’ve never seen a bubbler this explosive before, this is an extremely unique bubbler!! What I like most about this bubbler is how well it’s made. Usually I wouldn’t be surprised to see some crappy metal pipe with a grenade theme, but to see it done this well by a company as highly regarded as Mathematix is amazing!!

The grenade part looks very realistic, even the handle and indents in the glass closely resemble an actual grenade. This bubbler is 4 inches tall and around 7-8 inches long, making it great for portability or just chilling around the house.

This bubbler is made from thick boriscillate glass, and the mouthpiece is made from green dichoric glass (I know it looks black in the picture, but this is one of those bubblers that looks completely different in person). This pipe features a deep bowl great for a sesh with friends, and you’re going to want to show this pipe off to everyone so that works out perfectly!

Weed Star Glass

Weed Star Glass has been around since 2003, with a mission to create quality glass with innovative shapes and unique percolation techniques. They’ve managed to do a good job at this, as you can see from a quick glance at some of the pieces I’ve featured, they have very unique shapes to say the least! One thing that might stand out just as much as the unique designs is the affordability that Weed Star brings. You’re not going to break the bank with Weed Star glass, and you’re going to walk away with a unique looking piece that will provide you with smoking fun for years to come!!

Abzorb Recycler Bubbler ($100)

Starting off with something fairly unique we have the Abzorb recycler Bubbler. This is a great looking bubbler, not much color, just the Weed Star logo, but it’s easy to see that there’s a lot going on inside this piece.

This bubbler is going to hit very smoothly, the shower head percolator provides tons of filtration, and with the 1-2 punch of the recycler tube, every single hit from this bubbler will be both smooth and cool. I am always a fan of bubblers with a recylcer tube, and not just for the filtration either, one of the best parts about a recycler tube is being able to watch the smoke go around and around as you take a hit!

This bubbler is about 9.4 inches (24 cm) tall, and is made using thick boriscillate glass. The angled mouthpiece is great for being able to sit back and enjoy a hit, but the round base also provides great balance if you’d prefer to leave it sitting on a table. This piece comes with an 18.8mm female herb bowl, but this is another bubbler that would double as a great dab rig, so feel free to pick up a banger or nail as well!

Funraiser Bubbler ($79.99)

Getting into something a bit more unique looking, now we’re taking a look at the Funraiser Bubbler. Once again this bowl doesn’t have much for us by way of color, but I think we’d all be lying if we said this piece didn’t look good! The shape is very odd I must admit, it’s skinny on both the top and bottom, while the middle is where we’ve got the most stuff going on.

Do you like smooth hits? Yeah I thought so, that’s why I included this piece on this list, because that’s all you’re going to get from this bubbler, which has three percolators. First the smoke travels through the shower head percolator on the bottom of the downstem, then it moves up to the honeycomb disc percolator, then keeps going through the “Swiss” percolator where it is then inhaled at optimum smoothness.

This piece sits at 9.9 inches (25 cm) and is once again made from thick, high quality boriscillate glass. This bubbler comes equipped with a 14.5mm ground joint, and comes with a 14.5mm female herb bowl as well! This is another bubbler that would work great as a dab rig due to its size and shape, feel free to pick up a banger or nail as well!
