Abstract

The invention comprises an improved tobacco smoking pipe such that the pipe may be used to smoke liquid tobacco. The pipe consists of an inner tube that has an open end and a closed end with an intake disposed there between that communicates with the open end. A connecting element secures an outer tube and allows the closed end of the inner tube to slidably retract and extend within said outer tube. The improvement of the invention which allows liquid to be smoked in the pipe is the addition of a retaining element extending from the closed end of the inner tube.

Description

  • This application claims the benefit under 35 U.S.C. §119(e) of U.S. Provisional Application Ser. No. 61/844,116, filed Jul. 9, 2013 by the present inventor, of which is hereby incorporated by reference.
  • I. Background
  • A. Field of Invention
  • The present invention generally relates to smoking articles. More particularly, the present invention relates to pipes for smoking tobacco leaves, oil and or resin.
  • B. Description of the Related Art
  • Smoking tobacco is typically available in a dried-leaf form and can be smoked using devices such as a pipe. The tobacco may additionally be manipulated by chemical and or physical means to alter the composition, structure or chemistry of the tobacco to form products such as resin and or liquid tobacco. These products may be thereafter combined with smoking tobacco or other fillers and or additives and smoked.
  • Known devices that can be used to smoke liquid tobacco consist essentially of water pipes, which are typically used as a result of the high amount of heat needed to ignite the oil. A method of smoking liquid tobacco for example includes the step of: (1) heating an element until sufficiently hot to ignite oil on contact, (2) contacting the element with oil (in a method known as “dabbing”) causing the oil to ignite and produce smoke/fumes, (3) encasing the contact element/oil, and (4) imparting a change in pressure or vacuum to direct smoke through pipe into a smokers lungs. Depending on the water pipe used, or method of the user, steps (2) and (3) can be interchanged. Notwithstanding the fact that water pipes require a source of water, the pipes require maintenance and care and are generally bulky and not easily transportable.
  • There is a pipe on the market known as a “glass blunt” which is a pipe that may be used to smoke tobacco leaf. The “glass blunt” has an outer tube and an inner tube. The outer tube has an adaptor placed on one end which connects to and slideably engages the inner tube, which is capable of retracting and extending therethrough. The inner tube is hollow and has an open end and a closed end. Between the ends is an inlet that allows smoke to enter the inner tube. A sufficient amount of tobacco may be packed into the outer tube with a closed end of the inner tube and the interior walls of the outer tube containing the tobacco. While the glass blunt is portable and requires little maintenance, it is not capable of being used to smoke liquid tobacco.
  • There is a need in the art to provide a transportable pipe that does not require water, requires little maintenance, and is capable of being used to smoke liquid tobacco.
  • II. SUMMARY
  • The current invention is for an improvement to a “glass blunt” pipe that allows a user to smoke tobacco oil from the pipe. In an embodiment, a retainer is provided at the closed end of the inner tube. In use, the retainer is extended beyond the opening of the outer tube and heated. Upon being heated a sufficient temperature, tobacco oil (i.e. liquid nicotine) is contacted to the retainer and instantly is ignited, causing the oil to smoke. The retainer is then retracted within the outer tube. When air is sucked from an opening of the inner tube, smoke is directed into an inlet formed on the inner tube.
  • In an embodiment the pipe of the instant invention may be smoked directly by sucking the opened end of the inner tube. In another embodiment, the pen end of the inner tube may serve as an adapter to yet another pipe.
  • III. BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE DRAWINGS
  • The invention may take physical form in certain parts and arrangement of parts, some embodiments of which will be described in the specification and illustrated in accompanying drawings which form a part hereof, wherein, when referring to the drawings, the inventor identifies the following components thereto,
  • FIG. 1 is a perspective view of an embodiment of the instant invention.
  • FIG. 2 is an embodiment of the prior art as a “glass blunt.” As shown in FIG. 2, the glass blunt is filled with tobacco leaf, wherein a portion is ignited and arrows indicate direction of smoke.
  • FIG. 3 is an exploded view of an embodiment of the instant invention shown in FIG. 1.
  • FIG. 4 is an embodiment of the instant invention wherein the inner tube is extended and the retainer is exposed to a heating source.
  • FIG. 5 is an embodiment of the instant invention wherein the heated retainer is retracted within the inner tube and contains ignited liquid tobacco, wherein arrows indicate direction of smoke.
  • FIGS. 6A and 6B show an embodiment of the instant invention wherein the inner tube is used as an adapter to connect to other smoking means such as a water pipe.
  • IV. DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE INVENTION
  • The instant invention is for an improved pipe for smoking tobacco that is an improvement over the prior art wherein the improvement allows for the pipe to be used to smoke liquid tobacco.
  • FIG. 1 shows an embodiment of the invention wherein pipe 100 comprises a retainer 145 extending from a closed end 140 of inner tube 130. With exception of the closed end 140 the inner tube 130 is substantially hollow. Inlet 150 is a hole formed on a side of inner tube 130 that communicates with opening 135. Means 160 connects to a first end of outer tube 110 and slideably engages with the exterior surface of inner tube 130 allowing the inner tube to extend and retract within and relative to outer tube 110. In an embodiment, means 160 comprises an insulating or non-heat conducting material such as rubber which secures an open end 125 of outer tube 110 and creates an airtight seal between the interior of outer tube 110 and the exterior of inner tube 130. As shown in FIG. 1, the retainer 145 is extended beyond opening 120 of outer tube 110 so that it may be heated.
  • FIG. 2 provides an embodiment of the “glass blunt” currently available. In the embodiment as shown, the pipe 400 consists of an inner tube 430 that has a first open end 435 and a second closed end 440. Means 460 connects to a first end of outer tube 410 and slideably engages with the exterior surface of inner tube 430 allowing the inner tube to extend and retract within and relative to outer tube 410. Disposed in between said ends of inner tube 430 is an inlet 450 which allows smoke to enter into the inner tube 130. In the embodiment as shown, the inner tube 430 is retracted. Closed end 440 serves as a boundary along with interior walls of outer tube 410 to surround and contain tobacco leaf 420. In the embodiment, the tobacco leaf is ignited and smoking, such that when air is sucked towards opening 435, smoke is drawn into inlet 450 and through the hollow interior of inner tube 430, in the direction as indicated by arrows.
  • FIG. 3 shows an exploded view of an embodiment of the invention. As shown, the instant invention comprises essentially three components: an inner tube 130 that consists of an open end 135 and a closed end 140, wherein retainer 145 extends from the closed end 140. The retainer 145 may comprise any shape or design not limited to a cup and or ridge as shown, provided it can maintain shape and composition at high temperatures sufficient to ignite tobacco oil on contact and retain the oil residue upon being burned.
  • Connecting means 160 has a first open end 165 that is shaped and sized to accept and secure first open end 125 of outer tube 110. The second open end of connecting means 160 is shaped and sized to allow inner tube 130 to slideably engage therein such that the inner tube 130 can be retracted and extended relative to the outer tube 110. In an embodiment, connecting means 160 provides an air tight boundary between the first open end 125 of the outer tube 110 and the exterior of the inner tube 130 such that smoke is directed through inlet 150 when air is sucked out from opening 135 of the inner tube 130.
  • FIG. 4 provides an embodiment of the invention when it is in use. As shown, retainer 145 is extended beyond opening 120 of outer tube a sufficient distance such that a heat source (as identified by a flame) may contact the retainer 145. Upon heating retainer 145 to a temperature that is capable of igniting liquid tobacco on contact, liquid tobacco is then applied by a method commonly referred to as “blotting.” The liquid tobacco then produces smoke, at which instance the retainer 145 is retracted within the outer tube 110 (as shown in FIG. 5) and air is displaced and or drawn from opening 135 of inner tube 130. This displacement causes smoke to enter inlet 150 and take the path as indicated by the arrows as shown in FIG. 5.
  • FIGS. 6A and 6B show an embodiment of the invention wherein the pipe according to the instant invention may be combined with another pipe, such as a water pipe 300. In this embodiment, the inner tube 135 may be inserted in the opening of a stem 320 of a water pipe 300 as shown.
  • In view of the several embodiments presented herein, various changes and modifications may be made without departing from the spirit and scope of the Invention. It is intended that such obvious changes and modifications be embraced by the annexed claims.
