In the whole range of smoking accessories, chillum pipes have a unique position. Developed in ancient India, such devices gained popularity in different cultures during centuries by means of their convenience and efficiency. However, how many people can clearly define what a chillum pipe is and how one may apply it in their smoking system? Let's dive in!

What is a Chillum Pipe?

Chillum is a smooth straight conical pipe, generally used for smoking and is usually hand made, and has been made using clay material but the chillums of today are made from a number of materials including glass, wood, and stone. It is a simple device consisting of the shaped tube in which the smaller end is used as the mouthpiece and the larger is to be filled with smoking material called a bowl. This is perhaps why people of all calibers love it; one, because it is easy to master and two, because it is easy to use.

How to Use a Chillum Pipe

Using a chillum pipe is remarkably easy, which adds to its charm. Here’s a step-by-step guide to ensure you get the best experience:

  1. Preparation: Chop your smoking material to a small powdery like consistency. This makes sure of uniform burning of tobacco to ensure a smooth draw and steady smoking experience.
  2. Packing the Bowl: Tilt the chillum vertically and make sure that the bowl is near the ceiling. Place your ground material gently into the bowl while avoiding pressing it tightly, which stops air from circulating freely.
  3. Creating a Filter (Optional): Some users recommend placing a small piece of stone or metal mesh at the bottom of the bowl to help stop material going down the tube.
  4. Lighting: Chillum smoking requires that one holds the chillum at an angle, preferably at 45 degrees. A straw is then lit using a lighter or match stick while gently blowing through the mouth piece. The flame should be on the side which is interacting with the material and not on the side of the pipe at all.
  5. Inhaling: Breathe in gently and deeply to ensure that enough smoke is drawn to the lungs and not out through the mouth. Use in moderation, this smoke travels far, especially when you’re starting with chillums since the hits are rather strong.
  6. Cleaning: In the case of the chillum pipe after the use of the pipe, it is recommended that you clean your pipe so that it can perform its required functions and also last longer. To clean them, all that is required sometimes is warm water and a pipe cleaner; fairly easy.
