The Genius Pipe is made from anodized aluminum and held together with strong magnets. It doesn’t break like glass or dent like pipes made from soft metals. Although we wouldn’t recommend doing so, we have heard of Genius Pipe owners testing the durability of their pipes with hammers and failing to make a dent. Even with rough handling, the Genius Pipe should last a lifetime.
From a distance, the Genius Pipe looks like an electronic gadget such as a smartphone. It’s also about the same size as a smartphone, which means that you can store it virtually anywhere. Carry it in your pocket or purse – whatever works for you. The hard aluminum resists bending, scratching and crushing.
The Genius Pipe has a sliding top cover that covers your herbs and keeps them in place while preventing the smell from escaping. You can pack the pipe, close the lid and bring your herbs anywhere, ready for a discreet smoking session at a moment’s notice.
When you disassemble the Genius Pipe’s magnetic components, you’ll see the feature that gives the pipe its name. When you use the pipe, the smoke passes over thousands of tiny dimples.
The dimples encourage the smoke to form vortexes, swirling around in the dimples before proceeding to your mouth. As you use the Genius Pipe, you’ll learn that inhaling slowly is the best way to ensure that the smoke lingers in the dimples as long as possible for maximum cooling.
When the smoke finally reaches your mouth and lungs, you’ll find that it is remarkably cool, smooth and cough free. Unlike water filtration – which cools the smoke but muddles the flavour of the delicate terpenes in your herbs – the dimples in the Genius Pipe cool the smoke while preserving its flavour.
Once you have finished your toke, you slide the magnetic lid back over the bowl, which then extinguishes the flame, making the whole process a lot safer!
Tar and resin are heavy. That fact means that the dimples of the Genius Pipe have a secondary purpose aside from cooling the smoke. As the smoke swirls around in the dimples, some of the tar and resin settle to the bottom. You’ll see the dark tar when you open the pipe after a few smoking sessions. Without a filter, the Genius Pipe can help to prevent some of the harmful products of smoking from entering your lungs.
Although it’s undisputed that the Genius Pipe provides a stellar smoking experience, the quality of the smoke may not actually be the Genius Pipe’s greatest feature. If you’ve ever cleaned a traditional herb pipe, you know how hard it can be to remove the sticky resins. The Genius Pipe, however, disassembles easily and doesn’t have any areas that are hard to reach. Simply pull apart the magnetic sections of the pipe and dip them in a bath of rubbing alcohol for a few minutes. After soaking the pipe, rinse it in warm water. Any remaining resins fall away. Dry the pipe with paper towels, and you’re ready to enjoy a completely clean smoking session.
We have been fortunate enough to try the Genius Pipe and we were positively surprised! Many pipes claim to be the best, and cough-free with great flavour. So when we read the hype around this sleek pipe, we were a little skeptical, however, our minds were quickly changed.
First off, this pipe is super easy to use! To be honest, most pipes are super easy to use. You light a flame to your material and inhale - no rocket science there, however, we loved the 3 part design, that lets you carry your material already pre-loaded in the bowl. The smell-proof magnetic lid is also great. This way you just load up your pipe and you are ready on the go.
Additionally, pipes almost always make us cough, as smoking is just a lot harsher than vaping and it is almost inevitable not to cough. However, this pipe is awesome! The smoke that is produced is around room temperature, and the innovative technology really makes each toke as smooth as a water-pipe, with better flavour!
The only thing we would say is, that the Genius Pipe is not small. It is super sleek, yet is a bit longer than an iPhone, so keep that in mind.
If you are looking for a long-lasting, durable pipe that you can take anywhere and that creates smooth hits, the Genius Pipe is definitely the one for you!
