Are Wooden Pipes good for Smoking?
Yes, absolutely! Wood pipes are an excellent choice for enjoying tobacco or your favourite herb. Wood Pipes are generally lower and cheaper in price compared to metal and glass counterparts, are very durable and have a great rustic aesthetic; think Gandalf.
Do Wooden Smoking Pipes burn as you use them?
It may sound a little silly, but your weed pipe won't burn when exposed to flame. Most Wood Pipes are extremely dense and hard which protects them from the ignition of tobacco and other herbs in the bowl. Usually when you buy a new pipe it will feel a little harsh to smoke at first, but as you continue to use it it will build up a layer of what's called 'char' or 'cake' in the bowl which increases the temperature needed for the actual wood to burn. Because of this the ignition reacts with the tobacco or herbs instead which combusts at a much lower temperature.
Long story short, I guess you could say that your smoking experience will increase the more you use your wooden pipe, over time your pipe will gradually wear out from the burning and heat and the smoke given from the wood only adds to the aroma and is half the reason smokers choose them over metal pipes or silicone smoking pipes.
