Skinny or Wide Clear Glass Pipes: You Decide!

Posted by David on

Whether you’re a cannabis newbie or an experienced connoisseur, choosing the right pipe can be quite a challenge, with so many options available that are all unique in their own way. If you’re in the market for a clear glass pipe, the first thing that you need to decide is whether you want a skinny pipe or a wide glass piped. You may think that this factor doesn’t make a difference, but you’d be surprised.


When choosing a pipe, it’s okay if you prioritize aesthetics. After all, companies make beautiful pipes for a reason. Choosing a skinny or a wide pipe because of how it looks is perfectly fine, as it’s not like one is objectively better than the other in terms of the quality of your smoke.

Smoke Temperature

Believe it or not, the temperature of the smoke that you inhale can be determined by the width of your pipe. A skinnier pipe has a skinnier chimney, which means that the smoke takes longer to get from one end to the other. During this process, the smoke can’t help but cool down along the way. In other words, a skinnier pipe will provide you with cooler smoke. Alternatively, a wider pipe will give you warmer smoke, because the smoke doesn’t need to take as long in order to get to the mouthpiece. Smoke temperature is a subjective matter, so choose which one appeals to you.

Amount of Smoke

Similarly, the amount of smoke that you’ll get with each hit can be partially determined by the width of your pipe. With a skinnier pipe, there’s only so much smoke that can get through the chimney at any given time. This means that a skinnier pipe will give you smaller hits. A wider pipe allows a wider stream of smoke to enter through, and this will result in more smoke per hit.


A lot of experienced pipe users will tell you that a skinnier pipe produces a stronger flavor than a wide one. This likely has to do with the amount of air that can enter. Air “waters down” the flavor, and so a wider pipe will likely produce a weaker taste because the smoke is dissipating faster. A skinnier pipe essentially concentrates the flavor, because scientifically speaking, the smaller amount of smoke means more flavor compounds per hit. If you really like getting the full flavor of your herb, a skinnier pipe may be what you’re looking for.

Overall, There’s More to Skinny and Wide Clear Glass Pipes than Aesthetics Alone

Weigh the pros and cons of each to end up with the pipe that will give you the most satisfying experience possible. At The Vape Mall, we offer both skinny and wide clear glass pipes so that no matter which one you prefer, you can grab the one that best suits your needs.
