Glass bowls for smoking are glass pipes that individuals use for smoking tobacco and herbs. These pipes range in size and presentation, and there are several simple and complicated varieties from which to choose.
Glass pipes are advantageous because their bowls do not heat up as quickly as metal pipes, which provides more comfort for the user. The visual experience is different as well, as users can see the smoke filling the bowls and moving through the shaft, unless the view is otherwise obstructed by graphics or an opaque surface. Some smokers also say that the flavor is different with a glass pipe.
