A New Cannabis Tool That Massively Succeeds: Heir Water Pipe
Group Water pipe
With all this sheltering in place at home, I knew shortly into the experience that world events would affect me pretty quickly. Staying at home and rightfully so has made me re-examine the tools I use to smoke flowers from Green Bodhi, an ultra-high quality cannabis company from Oregon. I knew that working at home could be taken a number of ways. First of all, I’ve worked from home for a couple of years now, so it wasn’t a shock to the system to suddenly be faced with a crowded desk, my computer and a ton of things to do. The best yet was that I suddenly had all the time in the world to do what I was always too rushed to do well.
One of the things that I like to do the most is review and describe a myriad of cannabis accoutrements, along with my usual enjoyment of ultra-fine flowers. It’s my passion to share my always evolving knowledge in not only the cultivars, but what I’m using right now to smoke those flowers. And how much I enjoy those tools. The Heir is one of these magical tools.
I know that smoking cannabis can rough up your throat from time-to-time, it is after all, combustion. The smoke is just that, smoke, lit by fire. Unless you are taking edibles or thc based libations, there can be a fair amount of irritation on your throat. It pretty much depends on the sensitive nature of your throat itself, or the quality of the cannabis. I think both are very important, especially when coughing is a concern, for obvious reasons.

When I saw the Heir Water Pipe last year out at a private sesh in northern California, I knew immediately that I wanted one for my own. It was that simple. The design called out to my own design ethos. It spoke a language of the Case Study Houses located around California, the architectural modern vernacular of Mid-Century Modern in a smokeable format. I wanted to own an Eames chair and living a cloistered life in a bamboo forest.
This Treehouse Is A Socially-Distant, Cannabis-Fueled Dream Vacation
Even The Bookies Want The Election To Be Over—And The Betting To Stop
Could President Joe Biden Legalize Marijuana? Not Really—And The Marijuana Industry Doesn’t Want Him To Try.
The only downside was, at the time I couldn’t make room for this purchase in my equipment and tool budget.
Now became the perfect time for a new Heir water pipe to find a place into my life. I’m glad I got one for the long months of near isolation that I’ve been respecting. Shelter at home. The Heir water pipe makes it that I don’t have to leave the house as often. It maximizes my limited supply of medical cannabis and makes for great efficiency.
Opening the elegant box that the water pipe came packed into oozes pure luxury. It stretches deeply into my imagination. The carrying case itself, fitted with precisely cut foam sections, cradles your glass and chrome water pipe. The foam goes further than just mere packing materials, only meant to discard after one use. They are technically assembled to keep your work of art completely safe from any damage. The overall design is handsome to the eye without shouting. There are very few parts to get lost on my Heir. The massive stainless steel bowl is different than the one that goes on my other bongs, so this most important part won’t get lost, or even broken by a slip of the hand. The base of the water pipe is sturdy glass. I love how it feels in my hand, substantial, tactile, wonderfully user friendly, almost right out of the box. When you fill it with cool water, and perhaps some slices of freshly crushed mango and a tangle of fresh mint, it truly becomes an active work of art. One that you interact with, not just look at on the shelf. I wouldn’t want to taste the infused water after smoking it, that would be gross. Any added ingredients serve to cool the inhaled smoke, whatever you put into the glass bottom would be a benefit to your deep enjoyment and especially cooling your hit. Imagine having ingredients like wintergreen, fresh lime and a cucumber slices in your Heir? I did, and this mixture offered cooling refreshment on a steamy day.

The textured and frothy cannabis smoke is soft and full against my palate, cool to the touch if you will. It never burns nor does the pillow of smoke cover up the rich textures and scents of your expensive medical flowers. I’m thrilled by the mouthpiece itself, easy to wipe with a touch of iso after each hit for good hygienic practice. You can also drop your lighter into the mouthpiece so it is always at hand for your use. Clever use of space.
I do recommend grinding your herbs a bit larger, just because a larger grind won’t pull through the air holes as freely in the handsome and substantially massive bowl. You could mitigate this first world problem with a screen, but I say just use a larger grind on your flowers and all will be forgotten. Or smoke a nugget of hash out of it. That’s certainly a win/win. You will activate the thing we call inner thought.
My recommendation? Save your coins and before long, you too will have your own Heir. This elegant water pipe is money well spent on something that truly brings a sense of pleasure in your life. Cheers! WBIt’s my passion to share my always evolving knowledge in not only the cultivars, but what I’m using right now to smoke those flowers. And how much I enjoy those tools. The Heir is one of these tools.
12 Best Water Pipes in the World Right Now!
What is a water pipe? Well, a water pipe is a bong and a bong is a water pipe. If you’re unfamiliar with water pipes or bongs, welcome to your education, padawan stoner; we are gonna enlighten you and make you a Jedi bongmaster… or at least tell you what all the fuss over water pipes is about!
Water pipes, or bongs, are chambered cannabis smoking pipes that use water and/or ice as a filtration system. Historically the word “Bong” is derived from a Thai word, “Baung” which is their word for a cylindrical, wooden water pipe. Word has it that the term water pipe was coined so that headshops in the dark days before medical and recreational marijuana legalization could sell bongs for ‘tobacco use only’. As if, doubtful anyone ever believed that!
The idea was that calling bongs water pipes and selling them for non-ganja use would prevent the authorities from interfering. Nowadays, there are some places online, like Amazon.com, that still insist that pipes, bongs or water pipes and vaporizers are for tobacco and not weed. To that we say ‘whatever’.
Using a water pipe is fairly straightforward, put water in pipe or bong, hold flame on bowl of weed, lift bowl of weed, the smoke goes into the water chamber or chambers, and then you put your mouth on the large opening at the top – the mouthpiece, then you inhale. So simple even a stoner could do it!
Bongs come in a variety of shapes and configurations – tubular bongs, beaker-bottom bongs, oval-based UFO bongs, multi-chambered bongs – also known as recycler bongs, plus modular inline perc bongs like the STAX system of bases, chillers and percs. You might find a work of art created by master glass blowers at Empire Glassworks. You will also encounter homemade gravity bongs made from a coupla plastic bottles, as well as water pipes made from thick-assed borosilicate glass, silicone unbreakable bongs, bamboo water pipes and ceramic smoking rigs. A varied creation the water pipe is!
Now you have some basic background on bongs, water pipes and whatnot – and we’ll keep adding important information as we take a look at some of the best of the best bongs and water pipes that the weed wired world has to offer. Let’s take off into our list of best water pipes.

Double Honeycomb Disc Ashcatcher with Water Recycler
TAG, you’re it! This Thick Ass Glass cylindrical bong is loaded with some righteous cool options and extras!
It has a large built-in ash catcher – though it has to be above 7 inches high to function properly. Your weed smoke from the burning bowl pull will pass through the Thick Ass Glass 8 ¼ inch tall pipe’s ash catcher, then the water chamber, through whatever in-line percs there are, and then into your mouth and lungs. Ash catchers consist of a bowl, a chamber, a joint, and a diffuser; what the ash catcher does is prevent ash and leafy particulates from being inadvertently inhaled by the toker. Another plus is that using ash catchers will keep your water pipe or bong clean longer.
Also part of the package are a pair of honeycomb percs suspended in the water chamber of this tubular pipe. A honeycomb diffuser, or percolator, is basically a disc with dozens on up to hundreds of holes. Bubbles are created in your water pipe and forced through the honeycomb, which reduces the size of the bubbles, increasing the amount of interaction between smoke and water – and you get cool, clean, smooth hits! No ice catcher needed.
And this TAG bong is a recycler water pipe, which means it is made to recycle the smoke by bringing it in a loop that goes back through the water chamber and percs again, which is going to further filter and diffuse the smoke, giving you an exceptionally clear hit of cannabinoid-laced smoke, without harshness!
The TAG – Double Honeycomb Disc Ashcatcher with Water Recycler is made of 5mm thick glass and the stem of this Thick Ass Glass water pipe has a 18mm female joint to accommodate an 18mm male bowl – ya want these parts to snug together tightly!
The price for such a fully loaded water pipe is $74.99, or you can make 4 automatic, interest-free payments of $18.75, your call; and the shipping is free within the United States.
- 5mm Thick Ass Glass
- 8 ¼ inches tall
- Large built-in ash catcher
- Pair of honeycomb percs suspended in the water chamber
- Recycler water pipe loops smoke through water chamber and percs again for extra-smooth hits
- 18mm female joint accommodates an 18mm male bowl
Small Bubbler Water Pipes and Mini-Bongs
4″ USA Mini Raked Concentrate Water Pipe 10mm – $15.00
Despite its teeny tiny 4-inch height, this dazzling mini raked concentrate water pipe delivers your medical or recreational weed hits smoothly and most enjoyably.
The made-in-the-USA pipe features vibrant raked color patterns of opposing spirals layered one on top of another, it’s what’s known as fumed glass; fuming is the process of vaporizing a metal like silver, gold, or platinum onto clear glass, then the atomized metal will cause the glass to appear to change color. When you’re high, it is mind-bendingly cool!
It’s more than a glittery water pipe, though, it also comes with a 10mm thick glass, female-ended dab nail concentrate bowl. This little bong is supersonic for hitting the wonder wax – and we don’t mean maybe!

Buddie Burners Kaboom Blunt Bubbler – $34.95
This is a tick-tick-tick-Kaboom little water pipe that you can use to filter your blunt when you burn one down while travelling, outside in a park, or maybe at a local music festival. This baby bubbler bong is made of sturdy borosilicate glass and is designed to add water filtration and cooling to your favorite pre-rolled cannabis blunt cones.
What is different about hitting through the Buddie Burners Kaboom Blunt Bubbler versus similar bubblers is the 14mm female joint that you could easily attach a 14mm male-ended bowl to and use as a puny portable water pipe. It’s two pipes in one, which is way cool!
What’s more, you can wear the blunt bubbler around your neck on a chain because it has a jewelry hoop on top. Fashionably discreet, unless spotted by a stoner who knows a smoking accessory when they see one – in that case, maybe they’ll wanna share some weed with you!

The conveniently placed, front-facing carb makes the Buddie Burner easy and comfy to hold while providing impressively large, silky smooth hits.

The Mini Bent Neck Honeycomb Perc Water Pipe piece has a thick, wide and sturdy base to ensure your piece does not tip over easily if you bump it while banging, and so it sits safely on any flat surface. Even if it does tip over, its durable glass build will do a better job of protecting it.
You can get this simple bent glass water pipe in a variety of color accents – pink, green and colorless clear – for $59.99 with discreet free shipping, so your nosy neighbor won’t know you got a bong delivered – unless you leave your window open when you rip from it, that would be on you though!

Medium-sized Water Pipes and Bongs

Graffix 10-inch Bubble Skinny Acrylic Bong is totally tubular, as in precisely cylindrical, and considered an original classic bong design.

UFO WS-Line By Weed Star – $55.99
The UFO WS-Line Bong is perfect for a close encounter of the weedy kind! Made with 5mm thick quality borosilicate glass, you can blaze away with your thicc-thighed ganja girl on this clear glass water pipe with the flying saucer in the middle. Maybe have more than a sighting, find a little physical evidence and, if you’re lucky, make contact – if so, use protection, some of those alien microbes can be nasty!
This marijuana mothership actually has 2 diffusers, an inline diffuser in the lower water chamber of the base and a UFO diffuser. The saucer-shaped diffuser is actually a variation on the ‘showerhead percolator’, which uses a tube, or pipe, coming up through the middle from the chamber below, and is itself covered by a larger tube. Air and water come out the top of the inner tube and then run down to the bottom of the outer covering of the perc where air and smoke exit into the water as bubbles. The UFO interior diffuser is a more artsy version of the showerhead perc with bulging spheres in the middle so it resembles a flying saucer type UFO, hence the name. See, the truth is out there!
Weed Star’s UFO WS-Line water pipe has an 18.8mm female joint and docks with an 18.8mm male-ended bowl. There’s also an ice catcher built into the smoke column at the bottom of the mouthpiece, allowing it to be filled with ice cubes, which help cool and filter the smoke. All of this adds up to out-of-this-world cooling and smooth smoke filtration!
If you want to experience the extraterrestrial smoothness of this bong for your own self, then you can pick one up for $55.99 of your Earth monies (USD), plus tax and shipping! Then you can sit out on your back porch at night, toking away and watching the skies!
- Made with 5mm thick quality borosilicate glass
- 2 diffusers, an inline diffuser in the lower water chamber of the base and a UFO diffuser
- 18.8mm female joint connects with an 18.8mm male-ended bowl
- Ice notches are built into the smoke column, allowing it to be filled with ice cubes, which help cool and filter the smoke
Vortex Gravity Bong – $98.99
You’ve heard of gravity bongs, but you fell asleep in science class and so the word ‘gravity’ intimidates you… worry not, my narcoleptic friend, the gravity bong is among the simplest – yet most effective – of concepts. Homemade gravity bongs work by submerging a smaller, cut-in-half bottle with a weed bowl on top in a larger bottle or bucket of water; then while lighting the herb, you slowly draw the smaller bottle out of the water in the bucket to fill with smoke from the burning pot leaf.
You then unscrew the lid, put your mouth over the bottle’s opening, push the bottle down and then let gravity push the smoke upwards into your mouth and lungs. Actually, it’s air pressure that propels the smoke, but air pressure bong isn’t as good a name as gravity bong.
Since the Vortex Gravity Bong is manufactured and not cobbled together from a 2-liter soda pop bottle and a mop bucket, or something, you don’t have to worry about leaks or that nobody bothered to wash out the mop bucket before using it for your gravity bong! Eww!
The Vortex Gravity Bong is 331mm/13 inches high, made of colorful acrylic (available in blue, green and smoke) – so it is super-portable and very sturdy!
This tubular bong is easy to use: you simply open the valve on the side, pour the water in slowly, letting it fill the bottom chamber, then you tip it upside down and fill the top chamber with water – once full, you tip it right-side up, close the valve briefly and light your bowl, immediately opening the valve so that it releases water back down to the bottom and, as the smoke fills the vacuum left behind, you just lift the bowl and breathe in the smooth, purified smoke! Nice, huh?
The straight mouthpiece of the Vortex Gravity Bong accommodates either a male or female bowl piece.
If all this sounds like your kind of water pipe, then you can plan on plunking down $98.99 USD, plus tax and shipping. Find it on a trusty online headshop by clicking the Buy Now button!
- Gravity bong efficiency and fun
- 331mm/13 inches high
- Made of colorful acrylic (blue, green, and smoke color options)
- Straight mouthpiece accommodates either a male or female bowl piece

- Easy to use
Lungbuster Supersized Bongs and Water Pipes
Hidden Glass 17″ Curved Honeycomb Bong – $161.00
With a name like Zong bong, how can you go wrong? This Z-shaped water pipe looks like an exotic bong, but it is actually quite the clever design! The zig-zag shape is cool-looking, true, but it actually serves as a splashguard, preventing water from the water chamber from bubbling up and into your mouth.
The 5-inch wide base houses an enlarged honeycomb percolator for lots of effervescent filtration!
Standing 17 inches high, this curvy bong has a female 18mm stemless joint to accommodate an 18mm male-ended bowl plug.
If you prefer purebreds to mutts, then you’ll be glad to know that this Curved Honeycomb Bong comes with a Hidden Glass frosted decal and a stamped Authenticity Logo!
If you fancy yourself a beautiful bong, then you can pick up one of these long Zong Bongs for $161, or 5 automatic, interest-free payments of $32.20; and the shipping is free in the United States.

Cheech & Chong™ Glass Framed Water Pipe – $164.99
Wow, man, it’s a Cheech and Chong beaker bong! These guys are, like, the godfathers of stonerdom – ‘Up in Smoke’ is considered the first great ganja movie, unless you count ‘Reefer Madness’ (also a comedy, even if unintentionally)!
This is a well-crafted and decidedly cool 15-and-a-half-inch tall beaker tube water pipe with a built-in inline showerhead perc. The comedy team of Cheech and Chong are cool because they’re funny, beaker bongs are cool because the wider shape makes for a more stabilized base, and they can generally hold more water than narrower tubular bongs. The big plus of extra water storage is that it allows you to more easily control the type of perc filtration and amount of drag resistance present during inhalation. So, you can finesse your high – far out! And beaker-style water pipes generally require less cleaning or water changes; also far out!
A removable 14mm male-ended bowl piece slides into the stubby female joint angling from the side of this classic beaker-bottomed bong.
Along with your bong, they also send you some goodies:
- Cheech & Chong™ Glass Collectible Rainbow Tie Dye Box
- Certificate of Authenticity
- Cheech & Chong™ Glass Sticker
- Cheech & Chong™ Glass Mini Catalog
If you wanna be up in smoke and have your own wacky adventures and misadventures, then pick yourself up a Cheech & Chong™ Glass Framed Water Pipe today for $164.99, plus tax and shipping. Then you can cue up one of Cheech and Chong’s movies, maybe ‘Dazed and Confused’, ‘Pineapple Express’, some Harold and Kumar, and have a binge-watching bong fest!
- 15-and-a-half-inches tall
- Stable beaker-bottom bong
- Built-in inline showerhead perc
- Removable 14mm male-ended bowl piece
- Comes with all kinds of Cheech & Chong™ swag (see above)

B. Wilson – Worked Donut Inline Bong – $360.00
Doin’ the donut bong we are! You’ve probably not seen an exotic bong as wholly different as this water pipe with a hole in the middle! You may prefer Crispy Crème or Dunkin, but everybody is gonna love this sweet treat of a water pipe!
The 9-inch tall bagel bong is more than just different-looking, it has a highly functional straight tube design with a reinforced multi-slit inline perc that offers percolation perfection while the integrated triple donut holey design further diffuses your smoke and acts as a splashguard – that’s right, the three-way donut hole is a splashguard – and they say donuts aren’t good for you!
The slender mouthpiece on this oh-so-unusual bong has a flared lip around it for better sealing and comfort when you inhale. And this signature one-of-a-kind water pipe designed by Ben Wilson has a 14mm ground female joint size with matching worked disc screen slide to burn your weed in.
And it comes with Rasta color accents, which is all kinds of cool runnings, mon! It comes in blue, too, which is also very nice.
Made in California, USA, the B. Wilson – Worked Donut Inline Bong is just a stunning one-of-a-kind bong that does what it was made to do: deliver you a sweet smoke, and look good while it’s doing it!

Aqua, water – put in a pipe and you have cooling and filtration for your weed smoke, less coughing and it tastes better! That is the essence of a bong or a water pipe, whatever you prefer to call it. Pot pipes are handy, sure and simple, too – but the hits can be harsh and tend to lead to a lungbuster or several. If you add a little water to the weed pipe, then you have a bubbler; a little more size, then you have a mini-bong, from there the size and complexity go way up. There are single-chambered, double-chambered, and triple-chambered bongs. Ash catchers will keep your toke and your glass cleaner. More sophisticated bongs and water pipes are inline perc bongs with additional chambers for filtration and cooling. Some, like the STAX modular bong can be configured in different ways to really bring out the best in your bong blasts, enhancing smoothness and flavor.
There are some beautiful bongs out there, and some exotic bongs too; they come in every color imaginable from purple bongs to black bongs and Rasta bongs to just about any color you can think of, and just plain clear thick glass is pretty popular, too. Unbreakable bongs are great for on-the-go smoke seshing. A glitter bong might be great for an apartment pot party. Find a beaker bong if you want to count on something sturdy! You gotta know what you need from a bong to truly find the best water pipe for you.
Do you want a recycler water pipe that brings the smoke through the filters and percs for additional chilling and cleaning of the vapor? Do you want his and her pipes, maybe one a chamber bong and the other a gravity bong? Heavy glass bongs are best for heavy users, whereas a more delicate sandblasted glass pipe might be okay for the occasional rip of weed smoke. The ideal bong for you is whatever fits your leaf-lovin’ life.
So, spark your bent neck, glass water pipe’s weed bowl, lift the slide, let the smoke filter through your water chamber and inline percolators, refined and cooled until it enters your mouth and lungs and you feel the high crest like a wave! That’s what a hit on a water pipe can do for you! Whether it’s a Syn Bong, or a Wizard Bong, or Goldstein Bong, Empire Glassworks creation, or one of the brands that we featured above, bought from a trusty online headshop, once you find the water pipe that meets your needs then all you need after that is some good ganja to smoke in it!
