While we’re always staying up on the latest and greatest smoking technology, it’s important to stay connected to our roots - well, the roots of smoking in general, we should say. Pipes are one of the oldest and most common ways to smoke herbs - both cannabis and tobacco. Don’t worry, we’ll be giving you little sprinkles of smoking pipe history throughout this piece, but we’ll mostly be going over our expansive collection of wholesale smoking pipes for sale.
We are dedicated to providing our customers with the very best weed pipes available and ensuring the shopping experience is hassle-free every single time you need to restock. Our wholesale collection of hand pipes lets you choose between discreet smoking pipes, animal-themed pipes, one hitter chillums, and much more! Our pot pipes will save you time and money when shopping for cheap herb pipes online.
The pipe has been utilized as a smoking piece for upwards of 4,000 years and was originally made from materials such as wood, clay, and reed. Throughout the history of pipe making, it has been considered an artisan craft to hand carve unique pipes. According to Weedmaps, cultures across the globe have taken part in the ancient tradition. Fast forward to today, weed pipes and tobacco pipes are still frequently hand carved with wood, but a much more popular technique has been developed in the form of hand blown glass. Despite handmade smoking tools remaining a lucrative business, it simply cannot meet the increased demands from today’s vast and ever expanding cannabis community in the same way glass blowing can.
Mass production of weed pipes has blossomed into its own booming industry and manufacturers are continually introducing new varieties for the budding cannabis connoisseur, such as novelty, spoon pipe, or heady pipe varieties. Our collection of hand pipes has been carefully curated to meet the needs of any dispensary, smoke shop, or even individual tokers. Not only do we have a wide selection of materials, but we also have tons of different shapes, styles, and colors of marijuana pipes for sale that are guaranteed to give you a competitive edge as a smoking piece retailer. Or, if you’re an individual just looking for cheap pipes, ours are sure to make you the envy of the smoke circle.
The Wide World Of Weed Pipes
When we say “smoking pipe” or “marijuana pipe,” your mind probably goes one to one of two distinct styles, even if you don’t know their technical names. One of the most common and best smoking pipes for lovers of simplicity is the spoon pipe, which is pretty much exactly what it sounds like. Straight, simple but can be heady/fancy, with a little bowl at one end to hold your herb. The other ultra-common smoking piece pipe is the Sherlock pipe - you know, those long, curved-handle, deep bowl pipes that the famed detective was known for puffing. Because of the bowls that hold the weed, spoon pipes are sometimes also called weed bowl pipes.
But there’s a whole wide world of wholesale pipes and bongs out there these days, and we’re going to take a few minutes to introduce you to each pipe type in our collection today.
The Spoon Pipe
While the name is somewhat self-explanatory, a spoon pipe features a medium to long neck and a circular bowl, like a cutlery spoon. Created with an ergonomic shape for ease of use and comfort, this is the most well-known and popular style in our wholesale weed pipes collection, and in the cannabis smoking world in general. The most common styles are the glass pipes, but they can also be made from wood, metal, or silicone. These weed spoon pipes come in a vast range of designs from simple, single color schemas to ornate decorations that are either woven into the glass or fitted on the outer surface with 3D surrealist glasswork. Our spoon weed pipes online collection genuinely has something for everyone.
The Sherlock Pipe
For anyone familiar with the popular character Sherlock Holmes, who has been the star of comic strips, books, movies, and TV shows, you will probably recognize the unique style of Sherlock pipes. With a curved neck and deep bowl that form a shape reminiscent of a saxophone, they are easy to load and lightweight. While they were once popular tobacco pipes for sale during the 20th century, Hollywood has spurred a renewed interest in the pipe among marijuana smokers and you can now find them in incredibly elaborate styles. These are some of the best pipes for people who enjoy the old ways of smoking or who want to make a statement with their favorite piece. They’re also still a classic tobacco pipe style.
These small weed pipes are the optimal choice for anyone looking to stock up on discreet and portable smoking accessories for solo tokes. We supply several different types of one hitter pipes, including metal chamber pipes, one hitter cigarette pipes, slim magnetic pipes with lids, chillums (probably the most common one hitter style), and our incredibly inconspicuous lipstick pipes. Smokers who haven’t built up a high tolerance for THC will love one hitter wholesale pipes because they only allow you to take one hit at a time (get it?). This forces you to take at least a few seconds to a minute to dump the ash, pack more herb, and take another one, letting the effects from each hit sink in so you’ll know when you’re feeling it without going overboard.
Traditional steamroller machinery is defined by the ability to apply overwhelming force or pressure to any surface. Similarly, a steamroller pipe is designed to deliver exceptionally powerful hits. These types of pipes for weed are distinguishing because they have the carb at the opposite end from the mouthpiece, rather than on the side like a traditional hand pipe, which is what enables it to send a direct blast of smoke to the user. These are a great smoking pipe for any seasoned smoker or for anyone who’s ready to level up from classic spoon pipe weed smoking.
We know we already mentioned this style of bud pipe back in the One Hitters subsection, but it’s such a beloved and common cannabis pipe that it deserves its own subsection. A chillum is a compact pipe that has a straight, conical design and a tiny bowl on the opposite end from the mouthpiece. Though they are small, they are mighty. While they can be made from a variety of materials, they’re predominantly glass blown and often include beautiful color schemes, intricate frit speckling, or ribboning artwork. This pipe is a staple piece because it’s super inexpensive and optimized for portability so you can take it with you wherever you go.
We have an extensive array of bubblers, which are part of our designated water pipes collection. The bubbler pipe style is preferred by tons of cannabis consumers because its water filtration capabilities give way to smoother and better tasting hits. With a rounded base chamber for water, these pot pipes stand on their own as the stem extends vertically, rather than horizontally like a spoon pipe. Bubblers are so widely loved because they are a successful and user-friendly fusion of pipes and bongs, plus they are easy to store and pack for traveling.
Does My Business Need Smoking Pipes?
Whether or not your business needs a smoking pipe collection, and what smoking pipes you’ll want to stock if it does, really comes down to two main factors: do you sell marijuana/hemp flower or do you own a smoke/head shop? If you sell flower, whether at a dispensary, collective, etc., you’re definitely going to want to offer at least a handful of hand pipes for weed. If you own a smoke shop, you’ll want a solid collection of marijuana pipe and tobacco pipe options. If you own a head shop, though, you’re going to want to offer a solid and extensive collection of weed pipes for sale.
You see, smoke shops generally carry a wide range of pipes for smoking and pipe accessories that include wholesale pipes and bongs, but the glass smoking piece options aren’t the main focus of the store. Smoke shops should also carry products such as rolling papers, lighters, hemp wick, grinders, cleaning tools/formulas, rolling trays, and more. Sometimes they even sell cannabis culture items like posters and t-shirts. If you own a smoke shop, we recommend carrying an array of weed spoon smoking pipes for sale - the spoon pipe is one of the simplest and most commonly used smoking apparatuses. But you’ll also want to carry a couple of chillums and one hitters, some small water pipe styles, maybe a few large bong options, and potentially some novelty pipes (i.e. the sherlock pipe or lipstick pipe styles).
A head shop is a glass menagerie of sorts - when you walk into one, there should be every kind of glass smoking apparatus you can possibly think of, including a vast and diverse selection of marijuana pipes for sale. As we just mentioned, simple spoon pot pipes are incredibly simple and common. Because of their user-friendly, convenient, portable design, they’re the perfect smoking pipe for everyone from novices to connoisseurs. But speaking of connoisseurs, and even just intermediate smokers or those looking to try something new, they generally like to peruse and purchase interesting, personalized smoking pieces like heady glass pipes or bongs, dab rigs, and bubblers. You may also want to stock novelty metal and wooden weed pipes in a head shop, just so there’s something for every style of smoker from old school to futuristic.
Last but not least, we mentioned how if you sell flower you may want to keep a few simple marijuana smoking pipes behind the counter. While dispensaries and collectives aren’t known for having weed pipes for sale, there will always be random customers who realize they need one, or who don’t want to make the trip to a smoke shop when they’ve already come to one place to buy flower. Keeping a couple of herb pipes on hand makes it so you get those sales instead of the smoke shop up the street. Plus, when people search “smoking pipes near me,” your shop will come up. When they stroll in, they may just end up buying some flower, dabs, or other products of yours while they’re there.
Whatever your business needs, our smoking pipe online collection has something for everyone. Whether you need to line the shelves of a head shop or just fill one little shelf in your dispensary case, we definitely have you covered.
How to Clean a Smoking Pipe
Weed pipes are among the simplest smoking apparatuses to clean, but the problem is that many people get lazy, so it is important to keep up a cleaning routine to reduce gunky buildup. If too much buildup accumulates or if it sits in the pipe for too long, it will become more and more difficult to smoke through. Not only that, but residue will be harsh on the lungs and throat when inhaled. So, we’re going to provide you with some tips on how to clean different types of pipes because we want to ensure that your investment remains pristine for as long as possible. A clean weed pipe is always a healthier and better weed pipe.
In fact, an article published by Leafly explains that resin buildup contains carcinogens - you know, those scary, harmful toxins that doctors keep warning cigarette smokers about - that can pollute cannabis smokers’ lungs with repeated puffing through dirty pipes. There are a variety of common pipe and bong cleaning methods out there, and some can actually be harmful to your health just as the resin is. Isopropyl alcohol, for instance, may work well to loosen resin but it certainly isn’t good for your lungs. No matter what you use to clean your pieces (we try not to judge), always rinse them thoroughly with warm water before smoking through them again.
Not every pipe material can be cleaned the same way, so be sure to pay close attention to which method you’re using and which type of cleaner you purchase. We have a variety of different formulas for your wholesale pipes in our cleaning tools collection, as well as pipe cleaners that are amazing at cleaning those hard-to-reach crevices.
Glass and Metal: We have several concentrated cleaners, including Formula 420 which is the top-rated brand by consumers. Many of our class cleaners are also compatible with metal and ceramic but should never be used with plastic smoke ware. Buying cleaner formula for glass hand pipes is efficient and effective, although for those who don’t want to spend any extra money the soak and scrub method will work just fine. All you’ll need is equal parts alcohol and warm water, with some added salt, then just shake it up and sit for up to an hour before rinsing out and wiping out.
Wood: Even if it’s been finished, wood should never be scraped out or soaked in degrading chemicals because it could wear down or compromise the integrity of the material. Instead, the best tools will be a pipe poker tool, bristled pipe cleaner, and some resin remover, enabling you to get gunk out of the bowl and stem of the cannabis pipe. Next, you can bend the pipe cleaner in half and dip the folded end into the pipe cleaner before wiping the remaining resin out. Repeat this process on a frequent basis.
Silicone: It is not advised to use instant liquid cleaners with a silicone pipe because it will degrade the material, not to mention it’s just not necessary since silicone is non-stick. A simple homemade alternative from the experts at CannabisWiki is a combination of hot water, dish soap, and apple cider vinegar. Silicone weed pipes and pipe smoking accessories are even dishwasher safe, but you would most likely end up staining the dishwasher with a bunch of unwanted marijuana tar.
Our online pipe shop is guaranteed to have the largest assortment of pipes for sale that you will find throughout the virtual marijuana market. Whether you need a color changing pipe or glow in the dark weed pipe, look no further. Weed pipes are undoubtedly one of the handiest, labor saving, and cost-effective methods for smoking your favorite cannabis strains. When you buy pipes online, there is a live chat standing by to answer any questions you may have regarding products or services that we offer.
One last note: it’s also important to keep your tobacco pipe clean if you’re a tobacco smoker. Pipes and tobacco stick together just as much as weed and pipes do, and cleaning them is crucial for the same reasons.

Frequently Asked Questions About Weed Pipes
How To Clean A Pipe
Depending on the pipe material, you may need different cleaning solutions or tools. For the most common pipe material, glass, we cannot recommend Formula 420 enough - their various solutions are non-toxic and environmentally friendly. Before using Formula 420, scrape as much resin away as you can using an unbent paper clip or a wooden skewer/toothpick. Then, use strong tape to cover the mouthpiece opening of your pipe. Next, slowly pour Formula 420 into the bowl until it fills about half the pipe. Then, cover those holes with your fingers and shake your pipe vigorously - this will help loosen and remove the resin. Rinse with lots of warm water and continue scraping any leftover resin/repeating the Formula 420 until your pipe is clean. Don’t forget to rinse thoroughly when you’re done!
How To Smoke A Pipe
Pipes are super easy to smoke from. Start by packing your bowl with as much ground flower as you’d like. Then, lay your non-dominant hand out as if someone was trying to put something in it. Place the pipe on your palm, pinching the head (the wide part with the bowl) between your thumb and index finger with one or the other covering the carb/rush (depending on what side it’s on). Bring the bowl to your lips with that hand and use your dominant hand to spark the lighter and bring it to the bowl of flower. As you put the flame to the flower, inhale slowly to draw the flame in and draw the smoke into your lungs. After a second or two, release the finger covering the carb rush while continuing to inhale, then pull the bowl away from your face. Hold the smoke for a second or two and then blow it out!
How Much Is A Pipe?
Pipes are generally very inexpensive. A simple, quality glass pipe should cost you between $3.00 and $15.00, depending on the size, style, materials used, coloring, etc. Some of the extravagant pipes will cost more while the simpler pipes will cost next to nothing.
Where To Buy A Pipe
The best place to buy quality, affordable pipes, for personal or retail use, is right here at Marijuana Packaging. Our incredibly vast collection has something for every smoker, whether that be simple or luxurious or heady. Plus, in addition to simple hand pipes, we carry a range of novelty pipes, water pipes, bubblers, bongs, and dab rigs!

Can I Smoke Dabs Out A Pipe?
Some dab types can be added into pipes along with flower to give you an extra buzz. One example would be wax. Simply make some small crumbles from a clump of wax and sprinkle it on your flower in the bowl of your pipe and smoke it as you usually would. The flower will help to keep the wax from being too harsh, and the wax will add a hefty amount of THC or CBD (or both) to your experience.
