Many people may not recognize your glass chillum in your bag, and they might even ask you about it. In simple words, the glass chillum does not reveal your smoking habits to people around you. 

Easy to Pack 

 A glass chillum is a perfect travel companion if you plan to take your smoking device wherever you go. You can pack the Chillum with cannabis flower or medicinal herb easily. The right way to use it is to put the flower in the bowl and use a wooden dugout to push the cannabis flower inside the Chillum.

How to use Chillum? 

Glass chillums are easy to use, and you can light the Chillum by yourself with some practice. Put the flower in the bowl, hold the other end in your mouth, and light the flower. However, the method described above can heat the device very quickly. Hence cannabis smokers recommend users to follow the traditional way of using Chillum. 

You cup your hand over the end and place it between your pinky finger and ring in the traditional method. Then you have to put your mouth over your cupped hand and use your fist to create a smoke chamber. 

How to use Chillum With Your Buddy?

If you have someone to light up your Chillum, things become more manageable, and the smoking session becomes more enjoyable. For example, if you smoke a chillum with a friend, your buddy can light the cannabis flower. Also, the buddy method allows you to use both hands to create a bigger smoke chamber

If you are trying a chillum for the first time, you should use a wet cloth to hold the Chillum. Then, use both hands to form a cup to hold the Chillum. It will protect your hands from burning when the pipe heats up.
