Why Choose a Spoon Pipe?

Little spoon? Big spoon? Whatever you choose you’ll be sure to get especially cozy with a nicely packed spoon pipe in your midst. It’s no surprise why spoons are one of the most popular hand pipes. Easy to pack and smoke, their characteristic spoon shape gives it an edge over other styles. Here are a few of the main reasons why smokers often go with the classic spoon pipe. 

Ease – As one of the simplest smoking devices out there, spoon pipes feature a carb to control airflow. Its ergonomic design nestles perfectly in the palm of your hand too.  

Size & Portability – Generally measuring between 2-5 inches, they make the perfect compadre for all of your escapades given their sheer portability. Spoon pipes are notoriously easy to stash away in your purse or bag without fear of cracking since they are known to hold their own.

Durability – Their shape makes them extremely durable since the thick bowl is normally complemented by an equally sturdy handle. 

How to Use a Spoon Pipe

Spoon pipes feature four main parts including a bowl, neck, mouthpiece and carb. Their simplicity makes them easy to operate. Just follow these steps and you’re well on your way! 

Pack – First you’ll want to grind up your cannabis, preferably with an herb grinder. You can learn how to use a weed grinder here. If you find yourself in a bind with no grinder in sight we’ve got a few ideas beyond simply breaking the bud up with your fingers. You can also use a container and coins, cut it with scissors or even use a coffee grinder. All methods are broken down here in our guide for how to grind weed without a grinder. Once you’ve got yourself a fine grind, pack it lightly so that there’s enough oxygen for it to burn evenly. This also keeps ash from building up and clogging your smoking bowl.

Cover the Carb – The carb hole is generally on the left side of the bowl. Hold the pipe within the palm of your hand comfortably and place your thumb over the hole.  

Inhale & Light – Put your lips over the mouthpiece, breathe in and light at the same time. Your pipe should be angled slightly downward. Light the bowl from the outer edge so you don’t scorch your greens. This method is called “cornering” which preserves the taste because you are only burning a section rather than the entire bowl. So the next person you pass the pipe to can also enjoy the terpene-rich profile. Put simply, you wouldn’t want to serve charred greens to someone in your smoke circle, would you?  

Release the Carb – Once you’re ready to take in the hit, take your thumb off the carb and breathe in slowly so you don’t get into a coughing fit.
