The Hippie Pipe X – Review from someone who doesn’t like vaporizers

Don’t get me wrong, I love and appreciate the value of a joint. But to me, there’s nothing like getting good and ripped off a trippy device. After all, with the right strain and dose, cannabis can be a lot of fun. I like to do everything I can to set myself up for a great smoking experience and sometimes that gets a little unconventional. 

Recently, I acquired the Hippie Pipe X. It’s a handheld, analog cannabis vaporizer that you use with a lighter. I didn’t know what to make of it at first. It looked like it wouldn’t work very well. Despite its durable appearance and the fact that it’s mainly made of metal, I could imagine myself breaking it in a number of ways. So, I set to work on testing it and began a course of heavy research. As it turns out, the Hippie Pipe X is doing something right. Oh yes. They certainly are…

Hippie Pipe X review

This is an honest review of a dope little handheld vape. If you’re not into flower vapes, this article was meant for you. Generally, I don’t use them but this thing is sweet.

Why I don’t generally like flower vapes

If you are anything like me, you hold the belief that you have to ‘cough to get off’. Vaporizing flower doesn’t usually do it for me because I find I just don’t get much of a toke. This thing is different. You can customize your toke because you heat it with a torch lighter. Plus, because it retains the heat, one blast from the torch will last for several tokes. In short, if you want to taste the terps or hit it really hard, this device will work for you. 

The Hippie X

The hippie X vape is a small but effective personal flower vaporizer; you heat it yourself with a torch lighter. For the most part, it’s made of metal and seems to be pretty durable. It’s discreet, easy to use, and comes apart in five pieces for super easy cleaning. At first, when I pulled it apart, I struggled to put the device back together. Then again, that’s me. It’s quite likely that you’ll have better luck but in case you struggle, know you’re not alone. 


The packaging had a QR code printed on it which was supposed to give you the device directions. However, because of the design of the packaging, my phone wouldn’t register the QR code. But, the website was pretty comprehensive and I could have figured it out on my own.

Ease of use

For the most part, this little vaporizer is easy to use. It fits about a bong bowl worth of ground-up flower and holds it securely in a chamber with airflow. The filters are adorable but they’re pretty unique. Luckily, the device comes with a few of them. All in all, the hippie X vape is easy to load and simple to use; you just scoop up some flower and aim your torch at the X on the bottom.
