By far the easiest and most efficient way of smoking. Created with Fat Buddha Glass.
There are several ways to obtain a fast and efficient high, but most smokers know that’s with your handy dandy pipe, aka chillum.
A chillum is a specific type of hand pipe; not only is it the quickest way to get your buzz going, but it’s also the most direct way to consume cannabis.
Many love chillums for their easiness and portability, making them a prime smoking option. It’s been this way since the dawn of smoker’s time.

Stepping back into the history of smokers and what they used, one-hitters were just as popular as they are today.
In the 1700s, they were only made with bamboo and were much larger, used in sacred rituals and spiritual affairs throughout India, South America, and Africa.
It wasn’t until the 1960s in San Francisco and the Greenwich Village of New York City that chillums began to gain popularity throughout the United States.
Today, we’ve come a long way from utilizing animal horns and wood to modern glass creations. That said, you can still get your hands on a bamboo chillum if you’re looking for a piece of nostalgia.

What’s so appealing about the modern chillum pipe is its ingenuity and art. You can find any pipe of any size, shape, and theme. Moreso, each pipe was designed to enhance certain features and characteristics.
Take the Seahorse Chillum from Fat Buddha Glass, for example, a gorgeous piece that fits practically anywhere and is perfect for on-the-go tokes.
Another example is the Swirl Chillum. It can be used as an attachment for your bubbler or as a handle for your pre-roll/joint.
All of these chillums and one-hitters are quickly gaining popularity again as smokers look for the easiest way to get high.
Chillums are a top contender simply because of their lightweight, portability, and getting the most out of the smallest hits.
Chillums make for a more effective way of smoking while allowing you to preserve your herb and make it last.
Slip it into your pocket or purse allow yourself to save time, money, and effort with every sesh.
