What is a chillum (one-hitter)?
As small pipers, they were first utilized by holy people and Hindu monks in India. It is said that before it was created in India, monks were already using chillums for thousands of light-years. They have been linked with meditation and spirituality across Eastern Europe and Asia, but chillum entered western popularity in the 20th century.
Chillums became extremely popular due to their potent and direct hits, more intense than the standard dry hand pipe. Considered a fashionable and portable hand pipe design, Chillums are available at any local head shop.
Chillums vs. Hand Pipes
Commonly called "one-hitters" or "bats," chillums are smaller than the other hand pipe designs, such as spoons and sherlocks. They don't use a carburetor or small hole on the bowl's side. The carburetor is designed to be enclosed with a thumb or finger to direct the bowl's air stream into the mouth. The bowl can be removed and all the smoke inhaled if you take off the finger or thumb from the carb.
Chillums are carb-less, which means that there's a loss of control over the air stream in the pipe. This is what makes them "one-hitters." The bowl continues to heat as long as it can keep itself since there's no direct way to regulate the air stream.
Due to dimensions, chillums are best lighted at a 45-degree angle to avoid dry herb from leaking. Some smokers will utilize something small or round to grab the bowl's material, like a little nut. Standard clay chillums are burned with a piece of cloth or closed fist as a filter.
