Pipes offer portability and convenience. Ready to go with you, a basic pipe is simply a bowl with a straw. Ignite the contents of the bowl and inhale through the straw. We recommend inserting a metal screen into the bowl to stop the embers from entering the straw and your mouth. Pipes rarely have any filtration.
Joints are rolling papers surrounding ground cannabis. Depending on the tools at hand a joint could include a filter.
One of the main benefits of the water-pipe over the joint or pipe is water filtration. In the water-pipe, smoke gets pulled through water which serves to cool and filter the smoke. As most water-pipes are glass, transporting a water-pipe requires a well-padded and smell-proof case.
