7PIPE’S TWISTY GLASS BLUNT IS SIMPLE, SENSIBLE AND EFFECTIVE
New technology has seen some fantastic developments for smokers in recent years. From vaporizers to vape pens, but sometimes it’s nice to do it the old-fashioned way – with a blunt. But not everybody has the time or patience to roll a blunt, never mind a good one that’s going to make the most of your weed. That’s where the Twisty Glass Blunt from 7Pipe comes in.
This intricate little glass blunt eliminates the need for rolling, and even better, takes away the paper altogether – so the smoke you inhale is healthier and tastes better. It also helps you to tightly pack in all of your cannabis, so you can take more satisfying draws without having to worry about burning through your herb too quickly. The gold mouthpiece has eight small holes arranged in a circle to inhale from. The glass blunt itself measures four inches long and has a diameter of 5/8 inch.
GETTING IT TO WORK
So how do you get the Twisty Glass Blunt to work? You begin with your glass blunt-shaped piece, and take out the screw. Then grind up your herb and pack it into the blunt – you can stuff a mighty 1.5g in at once. After it’s all in, carefully insert your screw into the blunt, and twist it in counter-clockwise until it’s fully in – it’s similar to opening a corked bottle of wine. The glass is 2mm thick and of a German Schott variety, an inert type that has just the right qualities to be used for a smoking product.
Once you’ve done that – a process that should take you just seconds (far quicker than rolling a blunt from scratch – you can light up your glass blunt pipe and start puffing away. Unlike with hand-rolled blunts and joints, the 7Pipe blunt doesn’t go out and maintains a steady cherry all the way through your session. There’s nothing worse than having to mess around relighting while in the middle of a great smoke session. When you’re ready to dispose of the accumulated ash, simply give the screw a clockwise twist and it’ll get pushed out the end. Once you have finished and the blunt has cooled down, place the silicone cap over the end of the glass blunt – as you will know, marijuana produces a potent smell.
With the size of this glass blunt, you’ll be able to share it with your friends, who are sure to be super impressed with your brand new product. If the unthinkable does happen and you break your glass blunt or lose one of the pieces, you’ll be pleased to know that you can buy replacements.
KEY TIPS WITH THE TWISTY GLASS BLUNT
With the cannabis packed in so tightly, the flavors and potency of the draws from the Twisty Glass Blunt tend to be very strong, so you may want to ease back a bit and take some lighter, shorter puffs – unless of course the hard-hitting draws are what you’re looking for.
Over time the glass blunt does become dirty – in the same way that a bong does – and the glass either becomes stained or accumulates resin. If you don’t keep an eye on this it will hurt the flavor quite significantly. Your best bet is to give it a clean regularly and thoroughly so resin doesn’t have the chance to build up – the longer you leave it, the harder it is to remove.
You can either wash out the blunt pipe with warm water and a small brush, or let it soak in an alcohol solution or a special glass-cleaning solution. Just take the same precautions you usually do when cleaning delicate glass items and you’ll be fine.
It may be worth investing in a carrying case, even if you don’t take your 7Pipe blunt around, just so you can keep everything safely together.
Also, if you have a 14mm bong, you can insert this glass blunt to it and try that experience out.
WHAT DO PEOPLE THINK?
The reviews for the Twisty Glass Blunt look to be great across the board, with many commenting on how easy it is to work. It’s very small too, and when you’ve got the silicone cap on, only a trained nose will be able to detect the smell. Normal blunts simply aren’t discreet at all, so this glass blunt has to be thought of as an upgrade.
As touched on earlier, this product is a great one to share among friends – it’s arguably a more hygienic way of sharing a smoke than with a normal blunt.
The 7Blunt pipe also tends to produce a much cleaner high than traditional smoking as you’re inhaling the cannabis pure, without burning a tobacco leaf or a cigarette paper. In that sense, it’s not dissimilar to vaporizing.
Some people have said that they purchased a couple of glass replacement tubes so they could grind up herb and store it, ensuring they’ll be ready to go again in an instant if they run out. These are sold inexpensively and a handy back-up to have anyway.
