What is a Chillum?

A chillum is generally a straight conical smoking pipe. Although chillums were mostly made of clay or soft stone in the past, nowadays, there are typically made of borosilicate glass. These pipes are usually grouped under one-hitters because of their size; however, they’re usually thicker and larger so you can pack in more herb. Most of all, chillums tend to hit pretty hard, but hey, that can be just what you’re going for.

How to Smoke a Chillum

To get started, you’ll need to know how to pack a chillum first. Once you have your finely ground herb ready, push the open bowl end of the chillum into the cannabis, rotating as you pack. This twisting motion will help to pack the weed down until the tube is filled evenly.

To smoke, ensure that you keep the chillum pipe as far away from your face as you can while still being able to smoke it. One way to do this is to cup your hand around one end into a fist and place the pipe in between your ring and pinky fingers. Next, place your mouth into the top of your cupped hand while a friend lights for you. Remember, chillums are meant to be shared!

How to Clean a Chillum

Generally, cleaning a one-hitter, as with most glass pieces will require soaking in a cleaning solvent like isopropyl alcohol and then use a cleaning brush or pipe cleaners to lightly scrub. Always remember to let it dry off before lighting up again.
