I read somewhere here that microwaving helps. Well, I put my wooden pipe in the microwave for just a min and the resin inside the pipe became really gooey! When I put a paper clip inside to scoop it out, it felt like butter. So I recommend microwaving your pipe. It did make a lot of smoke though, so careful cause your kitchen will reek. But I read that microwaving your weed helps. Who microwaves their weed and how is it making it any different?
