What is a water pipe and how is it used?
A water pipe is a device used to smoke tobacco, cannabis, or other substances. It is typically made of glass or metal, and has a bowl, stem, and a chamber that holds water. The bowl is where the substance is placed, the stem is used to draw air through the pipe, and the chamber holds and filters the smoke. When smoked, the substance is heated and the smoke travels through the stem and into the chamber and through the water. From there, it can be inhaled.
What are the benefits of using a water pipe?
Water pipes offer a smooth smoking experience that is less harsh on the lungs. The smoke is filtered through the water, which removes some of the harmful toxins, carcinogens and plant material.
