I've never actually tried water (not sure how well that would really work). The way I find works best is letting them sit in rubbing alcohol (a high percentage) for awhile and it melts right off.. if you wanna smoke the resin your gnna have to let the alcohol evaporate first but its a good way to get your piece clean

By far the greatest way to clean a pipe is to put it in a plastic bag, with some iso alcohol and some kosher salt. Shake it around in the bag for a little bit. It will be clean in about thirty seconds. You may have to give it a few washes in the bag if it is too dirty. This is by far the greatest way to wash a pipe. A hot water soak will not do much. Just iso alcohol will do a little bit better then warm water. But iso and salt is the best. The salt acts as a grip to pull the resin off.

You should just clean your pipe and re-up instead of smoking that nasty black crap!

I thought you were just trying to clean your pipe, not smoke what you get out. Honestly, I would not reccomend that. Pipe resin has very low THC content. Just because it looks like hash, doesn't mean it is! The most you will get out of smoking that is probably a bad taste, a headache, and a very dirty feeling high. You really shouldn't even bother.

I have too, but I hated the high, the taste, and it gave me a headache. Really not worth it in my opinion. I don't believe I even really got high. It was more of a cloudy headed feeling that gave me the feeling of being high.

maybe the fact that all i do is smoke low quality herb contributes to the fact that i thought the high was great.. wish i didnt live where i do :(

Don't worry, man.

At some point, everybody ends up finding a high quality connect. I used to be the same way. I would usually smoke about a half ounce of regs a week. Then out of nowhere, I found a dealer who has by far the greatest quality I have found in Minniscrotum.

Try asking your dealer if he has some HQ. Alot of times, dealers will sell regs or mids, because it is cheaper and you actually make more money off of, and then they will keep the dank (I really hate that word for some reason....) for thereselves.
