For generations born in the past 40 years, it’s highly likely that most people have heard of Snoop Dogg.
And if you’ve heard of Snoop Dogg you’ve probably heard of his love for weed. Along with Cheech & Chong and perhaps Willie Nelson, Snoop ranks at the top of the celebrity weed smoker’s list.
As any brand manager would have it for their client, with a character like Snoop’s it was only logical that he’d have his own cannabis smoker’s accessories brand. But how good are Snoop Dogg Pounds products exactly?
The ATL Dual Use Water Pipe is built with a slitted pendant percolator that breaks up the smoke and disperses its particles, allowing the air to cool down almost immediately. The bubble base body is specifically designed to give the smoke enough space to swirl around and cold down even further before it hits the mouthpiece.
As you will find out below, all Pounds glass smoking accessories are made with 5mm borosilicate glass that doesn’t heat up easily. A feature that runs deeply in the product lineup and presents itself in the ATL as well.
The stability on the ATL makes the piece particularly nice as a center table decor item. A circular body water pipe with stability like the ATL’s is not an easy find.
This water pipe stands 11″ tall and comes in there different color combinations you can choose from; black, white, & milky jade.
Concentrate glass rigs are slowly falling out of style for the modern user who just can’t find the time to sit down and heat up a nail or do the background maintenance work that glass oil rigs require. Shopping for butane or replacing a broken banger.
Glass concentrate rigs are used by real weed connoisseurs that need that extra oomph and the added touch of class that a high-level glass piece provides.
Battleship by Snoop Dogg Pounds is a delicately crafted piece made of a 5 mm hand-blown borosilicate glass with a 12.5″ long neck.
The Battleship structure is particularly appealing due to its tri-percolator design. This not only adds to the thickness and potency of the cloud but also gives it an incredibly appealing visual effect when you draw a pull from the mouthpiece. The vapor spirals beautifully and evenly through the main body of the piece.
Because of its tri-percolation design and the above-average length of the piece, it was immediately clear there would be no problems with vapor being too hot. Which is something that I tend to struggle with personally regardless of what I smoke as I seem to have a sensitive throat. Only high-end vape pens and rigs like this seem to do well for me.
The Battleship comes in 4 different color combinations that allow you to mix and match with the room you’ll place your Battleship in. Which is exactly what an oil rig should be; a designer’s item. The Battleship complies with that characteristic as well.
One of my favorite smoking accessories of all time is the hand-pipe due to its functionality, efficiency, and inescapable convenience. The reality of joints and blunts, as much as I love them, is that they’re not the most convenient things if you haven’t pre-rolled in advance.
Pipes are incredibly easy to use and carry. Unfortunately, and I’ve mentioned this in other blog posts before, it would seem like my throat doesn’t tolerate pipe smoking very well. Most pipes deliver a cloud that’s too hot for me and that always ends up in a sore throat the next day.
The same happens with blunts and joints when I don’t filter correctly, but I figure if I’m going to be sore I might as well go blunt-all-day.
But this is not the case with the Hammer Pipe by Snoop Dogg Pounds.
Perhaps it’s the incredibly long 5″ body that separates your mouth from the heat source very well, it could also be the design of the air passage, the deep bowl design that separates the herb more from fire, or it might be the thick borosilicate glass that quickly cools down the smoke before it reaches your lips. Whatever it is, the Hammer works.
And if that wasn’t enough, you can choose from a total of 6 different color combinations to fit your fashion taste.
The Mothership is a thick borosilicate glass water pipe designed for exclusive dry herb use. As with other Pounds accessories, the Mothership is made with a 5 mm thick borosilicate glass meant to stand out and feel heavy in your hands.
The Mothership stands a whopping 13″ tall that makes it an incredibly fashionable piece but also adds the extra functionality of cooling down the smoke before it reaches your lips. Which is a feature enhanced by the dual-percolator design the Muthaship uses.
This device comes with a slitted UFO percolator and perforated inline perc for additional power and freshness to your smoke cloud. The straight tube design simply looks cool with the dual-perc structure and the thick-rimmed mouthpiece that make the whole experience feel like something great is about to happen.
The piece also comes with a reinforced downstem female joint a removable male bowl that fits just right and comes with an easy-to-grab handle that makes for maximum manipulability.
The whole base of the Muthaship made it feel like it could never fall off the coffee table. This probably will never happen unless something extremely unexpected comes to pass, but the Muthaship is extremely stable and reliable. Not to mention thick as can be, which would probably trump one of those unexpected occurrences that would inevitably result in a broken bong with any other brand.
Water Pipes tend to be bulky, heavy devices. What first struck me with the Spaceship is that this did not seem to be the case.
An incredibly compact device that only stands 6.5″, which makes it incredibly stable but my initial thought process was that this would hurt the product’s performance in terms of air cooling. Which I was also completely wrong on.
The Spaceship is designed for dabbing purposes, so vapor cooling tends to be a bit different than it is with smoke. I personally find vapor to be less harsh on the throat and easier to cool down, the Spaceship solidified that interpretation.
The Spaceship comes with two different kinds of nails made for dabbing enthusiasts to pick and choose from.
As is expected from any Snoop Dogg Pounds glass piece, the Spaceship is made from a ruggedly thick 5mm borosilicate glass. Because the Spaceship is such a small and compact piece, the percolator action needs to be unbelievably efficient to cool down the smoke well.
The inline ruffle percolator does a great job of retaining any residue and cooling down the vapor to just the right temperature for a deep smooth pull.
Not everything in the product lineup of Snoop Dogg Pounds has to have a complex design. Sometimes all weed needs is a simple glass bong to make you happy.
The Starship is made of a 5 mm thick borosilicate glass, which is the standard in all the Pounds product lineup. The beauty about this particular smoking accessory is that it has a dual-use for herbs and waxy concentrates.
The beaker base design makes it incredibly stable and easy to use. A beaker bong is probably what most people have used for their first bong smoke.
With a 6″ height the Starship is a greatly portable device but is unexpectedly adept to provide extra-thick clouds from deep powerful pulls.
The Rocketship is made from the characteristic hand-blown 5 mm borosilicate glass that makes for an extremely durable glass piece.
The Rocketship has an amazingly simple design that speaks volumes of how easy this piece is to use. But simplicity does not mean low quality, it only means that you can get to smoking faster. The removable downstem and ground joint make the piece very easy to clean and operate.
The Rocketship only has an 11-inch height which makes it a perfectly transportable accessory that fits easily in your backpack or bag.

That's right. Some people call it "diet weed" because it will get you buzzed but won't make you hungry.
Don’t let its simplicity deceive you. There’s a ton of power packed into a brilliantly simple form.
