High End Glass Vs Cheap Glass
Category: Glass | Posted on Wed, January, 15th 2014 by THCFinder
Everyone knows that there's a large difference between the cheap glass and the expensive glass. There's many factors that go in to picking glass. All of these factors must be accounted for if you're going to end up with a quality piece of glass that won't only last long but will get you super stoned. Buying glass is a very important part of the stoner lifestyle, even if you prefer to smoke papers as compared to glass. All stoners have some sort of glass collection and most take serious pride in their fragile soldiers of smoking.
The origin of the piece is very important. Glass made in the States tends to be extremely well made, more so by local glass artists as compared to larger companies. Other reputable glass companies come from Canada and occasionally Germany, among other locations. Glass that comes from China, however, is something that you need to look out for. Chinese glass pieces are usually sold in gas stations and are extremely cheap, not to mention easily breakable. While these pieces are good for on-the-go smoking (because they're easily disposable) or to be used for party pieces, something that won't break your heart if it happens to break.
Glass weight is extremely telltale of a bad piece. Lighter pieces mean fragile glass which eventually means an easy break. These lightweights may look similar to their expensive counterparts but don't be fooled. Once you pick a piece up, you'll be able to tell if the glass will shatter with the next speck of dust that lands on it. The heavier the piece, the better. The piece that you pick should be heavy and thick, with minimal bubbles (some people are very offended by bubbles... I believe that as long as they're not in the path of flame, they're an acceptable imperfection). Opting for a lighter piece only guarantees the inevitable break.
The last piece that factors in to the purchase of your new smoking device is where you get it. Buying a piece that says ROOR at a gas station doesn't mean that it actually is a Roor. It means that someone stuck a sticker on a cheap piece of garbage that won't last the ride home. Glass should come from licensed dealers that take pride in the glass that they sell, not from the dusty shelf next to the register where you buy a Redbull before work. Always remember to take pride in your glass. Keep it clean and use it carefully!
