All that recent talk about vaporizers left us wondering: where are all the pipes?
Though vaping seems to be gaining popularity over smoking, true stoners will tell you that smoking will never die. As we all know, pipes can deliver an exceptionally smooth smoke, and can really be a sight to look at. And unlike joints, the passing around of pipes just feels more ceremonial due to their size and design.
Finding an adequate water pipe can be a real challenge, especially if you lack experience.
So, today we’ll give you something to think about and test (better sooner rather than later).
If you’re aiming for something more than a regular bong, Marley is the brand that you should look into, especially the pipe from their Rise Up collection – Marley Natural Rise Up Water Pipe.

Unboxing Marley Natural Rise Up Water Pipe
There are no other accessories here, just the Marley Natural Rise Up Water Pipe itself. Here’s what it’s made of:
- Borosilicate angled collar pull out glass bowl
- Borosilicate eight-slit percolator downstem
- Built-in ice catcher for perfect filtration
If you’re used to getting a nice, colorful collection of accessories with your weed vaporizers, this may be a bit disappointing. But as soon as you start using the pipe, you’ll know this is just enough.
Now let’s take a closer look at the features.
Design and Features
Marley Natural Rise Up Water Pipe is a prime example of expert engineering. The product has a strong focus on functionality and the design is popularly minimalistic.
The water pipe is made of thick, high-quality borosilicate glass and it’s arguably one of the most durable water pipes that you can find today. The product is 100% heat-resistant and it comes with a huge expansion chamber that can store plenty of herbs.
It also comes equipped with a special, highly convenient smoked glass bowl that you can pull out to store even more of those precious cannabis concentrates. Convenience is one of the biggest trademarks of Marley Natural Rise Up Water Pipe, and from that aspect alone, the product deserves a pure 10/10 rating.
From a visual standpoint, this is one of the best-looking water pipes on the market. It’s not an exaggeration to say this piece of smoking equipment will quickly become your point of pride.
The quality of smoke you’ll be inhaling is strong, consistent, and smooth. There’s a cooling effect to the smoke, thanks to the built-in ice catcher that purifies the smoke.
The effects usually kick in very quickly, taking you straight to that amazing high.
Ease of Use
Marley Natural Rise Up Water Pipe is extremely easy to use.
All you need to do is fill the pipe with water through the mouthpiece (cold water would be ideal) and cover the percolator – let the water come to about one inch above the downstem.
Provided you’ve ground your herbs prior to filling your pipe, you can now light the herbs by placing the lighter overhead and start inhaling as slowly as possible. Make sure you’re holding the pipe with one hand. That’s it, that’s all you need to do!
As is the case with all smoking and vaping devices, maintenance is key to keeping it in good shape for a long time. This particular water pipe can be cleaned with isopropyl alcohol and salt. You need to rinse it with warm water, and you can either dry it with a clean towel or paper, or let it dry naturally.
