Do you prefer glass or metal pipes when smoking fine cannabis? I would prefer to smoke out of a glass bowl because I like the way glass objects look as opposed to having a metal look. But I can't scrape resin really well from a glass pipe. I broke my last glass pipe like that and the pipe was really nice. I got it for about $30 I think. But I like to smoke resin as a kind of after dessert treat when your main stash is gone. Sometimes resin can be just as potent as buds. It all depends on the quality of the buds to determine the potency of the resin.
