Chillums (also known as "one-hitters"), are a simple type of hand pipe normally associated with spirituality and meditation and have grown in popularity for their strong rips.
The heavier hit characteristic of a chillum is due to the absence of a carb. As a result, there is less control over the airflow in a chillum. This means the bowl in a chillum will burn as long as the flame can sustain itself. Due to their size, chillums are best lit at a 45 degree angle to prevent dry herb from falling to the floor.
Chillums a great starter pipe for beginners because of their straight forward usage.
