Reefer Review: Chairlift's Patrick Wimberly Takes Strange-Shaped Pipes for a Spin

Jonathon Kambouris


Are these creative and classy pipes actually useable?  Chairlift's Patrick Wimberly gives Billboard his review.

1. Pint-Sized Porcelain Pen
“This one is sleek. It’s basically a fancy version of the classic ‘fake cigarette’ one-hitter but with a less deathly ‘I’m actually smoking metal right now’ overtone.” The Pursuits of Happiness voltaire pipe, 

2. An Apple A Day
“Apples have been heroes in pipeless moments for centuries, so many will be familiar with its design. Five stars in the ‘nostalgia’ category.” Lisa Sitko handmade apple “sculpture,” $100;

3. Cafe Con Cannabis
“This one gets most of its points for being a really fantastic coffee mug. The built-in straw is brilliant. They should sell it at Starbucks.” Enubi Wake N Bake mug, $67;

4. Mystical Crystal
“It’s beautiful, the most pleasant smoke and least likely to break in your clumsiest stoned moments.” Tokyo Smoke precious-stone pipe,  $150;

5. Elevated Coke Can
“Everything annoying about smoking out of a real can is annoying about this — however, it is a beautiful object and unlike a real can, it won’t cut your lip.” Candy Relics can pipe, $60;

From a $95 handmade ceramic apple bong (puffing from the real fruit is so 2016) to 24k gold rolling paper, check out these luxury smoking accessories.
