Why Choose A Vape

Vaporizers are the healthiest way to enjoy herb. It uses its heating systems to exploit the boiling points of the active ingredients in herb and create a tasty vapor that has all of the effects of a joint but without the harmful toxins released by combustion.

Vapes are also more efficient than a combustion based method as your herb won't be going up in smoke between hits!

The Dry Herb Pipe: The Genius Pipe

Genius Pipe

When they set out to design their products Genius chose to work with the principles of Zen.

They wasnt their products to help you enter a higher state of mind. Zen embodies the design philosophy of minimalism and always makes use of uncluttered, natural looking designs.

The zen influence is obvious in their flagship product, the Genius Pipe, a unique, minimalist dry herb pipe. The Genius Pipe is designed to cool your smoke by creating dozens of micro vortexes whenever you take a hit.

This effect is due to the Genius’ genius engineering, a grid of dimples in the airpath help circulate and whip the air up into a flurry of vortices with every hit.

You can also enjoy concentrates in your Genius pipe buy using the absorbent Gstone to soak them up before packing it into the pipe’s bowl.

The cooling effect of Genius’ pipe should not be underestimated. Since the bygone days of yore it has been common knowledge that hot smoke can be very damaging to the human lung.

Studies confirm that a whole host of lung disease can be caused by the inhalation of hot smoke.

For herb fans throughout time finding ways to cool smoke has been a priority and eventually it became an art. The Genius Pipe is the latest innovation!

Why Choose a Pipe

Pipes are among the quickest and most compact ways to enjoy herb. They are easily packed and even more easily cleaned.

Unfortunately, they use combustion so they can damage your lungs, but if you prefer to smoke rather than vape, then a pipe is for you!
