JBD- Q Ball Milli Marble (OLD SCHOOL)
- Alright Climax family, today we have an awesome Bong to talk about and it's coming to you, here: CLIMAX SMOKE SHOPS, all the way from Jerome Baker Designs in Austin Texas. Its called the Q-Ball Millionaire Marble. Guys and gals, this is the water pipe you get if you are a fan of water pipe history. Studio Glass Art didn't really come to light until around the 1970’s. Even as recent as the early 19th century, glass was scarcely used. Once modern techniques like the blow torch were involved, glass was more easily manufactured. In this period that our elders refer to as the late 60’s and early 70’s, water pipes were straight tubed, fat bottomed, and the bowl pieces sat snug with the help of a rubber “O” ring. The Q-ball Millionaire Marble takes you back to those days. The unit itself stands less than a full foot. The can or vase is a beautifully rounded bubble shape about an inch and a half tall. Just like most water pipes it has a downstem to force smoke through water. The bowl piece sits snug with a rubber grommit instead of the prefered “glass to glass” fit. What is very modern about the Q-Ball is that the entire base of the pipe is fumed with silver to give that awesome gold tint that will seem to change color forever. Q-ball is covered in glossy pictures that are fused onto the pipe’s neck, the way marbles are colored then made spherical. The Q-ball millionaire is an outstanding blend of classic and newly developed glass blowing techniques. Remember, fastest place to get your hands on the Q-ball Millionaire Marble is here; CLIMAX SMOKE SHOPS.

Well here at Climax Smoke Shop we have the answer for you. Look no further than the wonderful healing plant called mitragyna speciosa aka Kratom. Kratom is a multifunctional plant with origins in different areas of Southeast Asia, it is a tropical evergreen tree in the coffee family. The plants leaves are where it’s healing effects derive from, it is either crushed into a powder or extracted into a liquid form and ingested.The main active ingredients of kratom is 7-hydroxymitragynine, a natural alkaloid that has analgesic (pain relieving) and anti-inflammatory properties. The effects of kratom can be either stimulating or sedative based on the strain and the amount that is taken. At Climax Smoke Shop we offer 6 strains of kratom; White Maeng Da, Green Maeng Da, Green Borneo, Super Green Malay, Yellow Vietnam, and Red Bali.
White Maeng Da is the most stimulating strain we offer, it’s effects are similar to how coffee would feel. This strain is wonderful for those doing heavy labor or needing to be on high alert. White Maeng Da enhances the cognitive function of the human brain. The alkaloids present in this strain are responsible for attaching to receptors and initiating a set of neuronal activity that promotes better thinking and focusing. Enhancing mental and physical readiness without causing any signs of sweating, palpitations, and tremors that you would receive from prescriptions such as adderall and ritalin. With motivational and mood enhancing effects this strain is best taken in the morning or right before you begin any long or hard labor work. Also with its alkaloid content, this strain offers moderate pain relief. Due to its energy strength this strain may cause jittery, anxious, irritable, and restless feelings to some of its users so it is only recommended to those that are up and active for long periods of time. Suggested intake for beginners is a low dose of 2 grams and progressively ingesting more until you achieve your desired feeling. Effects of this strain last 5-7 hours.
Green Maeng Da is our most popular strain here at Climax Smoke Shop, it’s not as potent as our white vein maeng da but because of this most users actually prefer green vein maeng da. Green maeng da is much more mild but highly effective, it has a energy boost without the risk of feeling jittery and anxious. This strain is a natural dopamine activator and has an overall effect on its users self-confidence.

I consider myself a water pipe expert and have had my fair share of them but Rembrandt Glassworks just keeps-on surprising me. The art, the Percolators, everything. The design is outstanding.
I picked up this Rembrandt piece from Climax Smoke Shop (online here) and it has a lot of really cool features:
- A detachable Sherlock mouthpiece
- Frosted glass design
- A Honeycomb percolator
- A very stable base
The water pipe is an average size of 24", which is a great size in my opinion. Some people prefer a silicone piece to avoid risking a drop and break, but this glass one feels very thick so I'm not too worried about breaking it. It's very sleek looking and chic. I highly recommend it if you are looking for a sexy-looking glass water pipe that’s durable, effective, and easy to clean.
I consider UBS is the outlaw of water pipes. Since this particular water pipe, the UBS Lava 35, was so popular, I purchased it online from Climax Smoke Shop to make sure I wouldn't miss out (you can buy it here). UBS Glass makes really unique glass pieces that are unique and out of the ordinary.
For example, this piece has an alien inside...Yes, an alien holding the bowl attachment. Coming down from the alien is a diffused cool-looking stem. My friends love it and I get lots of compliments because of how interesting and "out there" it is.
This one has pretty thick glass too, and for more grip, UBS even added frosted glass around the mouthpiece, middle section, and base in an oval pattern.
This piece is truly an artistic piece. I love having it around the house and when I'm not smoking out of it, I have it on a shelf to stare at while I smoke.
