    I have purchased an opium pipe and as far as I can tell from the picture, it has a bowl similar to that of a hash pipe.

    But I've heard that opium shouldn't be smoked with a direct flame.... how would this work?

    not a realy opium pipe. Opium pipe you vaporize the shit. The bowl looks like a door knob. At least with the real ones. You probably bought some rip off online "opium pipe" that is really just a weed/tobacco bowl.

    Go buy a speed pipe. An oil burner. They work great. Else you could use foil. I never suggest anyone smoke opium though unless they have a ton of it. Eating it is far more effective and you don't have to cook it first.

    Using a 'hotstick' is the best way to get it to vaporize, A hot stick is a glass rod which is used in combination with a blowtorch and then placed in direct contact with the opium. When done correctly it will work far more efficiently at vaporizing than a lighter.

    My dog plans on getting himself a vaporizer, the same kind they sell to vaporise marijuana.

    Apparently, you can even grind up the pods and vaporise them with a surprisingly potent effect. And because nothing is burning, it is supposed to be better for you, health wise as youre not breathing in all the nasty fumes and shit from burning.

    yes glass oil pipes are the best way to vaporise the opium properly as you do not want to burn it l
