Smoking weed out of an instrument like a pipe or bong is a common way to intake it.

Although pipes and bongs can be made out of virtually any material, glass is most common because it is heat-resistant and are designed to trap smoke inside the vessel of the instrument.

Glass bongs usually have a resevoir for water and a glass stem that draws weed from the bowl down into the water to cool and filter the smoke.

Glass pipes and bongs are often made of colored glass in designs that are reminiscent of design tropes such as 60s and 70s hippie culture or Rastafarian culture.

Sometimes people refer to their glass smoking instrument as a glass piece.
