Dad Pipe #002: Full Bent Pipe With Lid
Acquired From: A Palm Springs based collector of Marcel Duchamp
We all have Dada-issues. Doubly so, if you know or venerate the works of French-American (but primarily French) painter, sculptor, and conceptual artist Marcel Duchamp, commonly regarded as one of the three (3) cis-gendered, randomly hetero-normative men who helped define the early decades of 20th century art.
Ceci n'est pas une pipe–we know. It’s a painting. But in this case, it is a pipe–with a closable lid which might cover the spark, but never the smell.
Sotheby’s stalwart Sophie Phillips first acquired this Duchamp look-alike in Paris, in the 1950s, but she personally preferred cigarettes to pipes, leaving this swoosh-shaped smoker untouched since the Auriol administration. Which means it’s high-time to put this art piece (back) to proper use. Fumer encouragé.
Disclaimers: Our lawyer tells us to clearly state that we can not officially confirm (or deny) the pedigree of each pipe. The names, characters or events referenced above came to us second-hand. Just like the pieces themselves. Any resemblance to actual persons, living or dead, or actual events is purely coincidental. Or is it? Our lawyer also tells us that we should advise you to give your pipe a good scrubbing before you put some grass in and smoke it. Some are mint. Others are, shall we say, “well-cured.” Instead of stripping away the years of pot patina, we’re selling these treasures just as we found them.
About Dad Pipes: A pair of vintage 501s that fits you like a glove. A framed oil painting with just the right amount of patina. A dusty old LP with some long lost grooves. Back in the day, we used to wake up at the break of dawn, trudge through the flea market and hunt through stacks of junk just to have a chance at uncovering one of these hidden gems. The internet’s made it a bit easier. Now, anyone with enough bucks in their PayPal account can pick up that rare bootleg tee without even getting out of bed. You want a pleather (the original vegan leather, duh) beanbag from Joni Mitchell’s 70s Laurel Canyon crash pad? There’s probably a site for that. And Ebay of course. But for those that want to add a storied smoking apparatus to their quiver (what, you only use fresh glass, man?), there’s been a serious lack of trusted second-hand resources. Until now. Introducing Dad Pipes. A limited and ever-evolving collection of one-of-a-kind vintage smoking devices, lovingly used and recently discovered. Each one has a story (that may or may not be true).
Put That In Your Pipe and Smoke It! (A Brief Rumination on The Joys of Burning A Bowl): Believe it or not, there are young people these days that have never had the pleasure of sneaking a little pipe rip at intermission. Some don’t even know what a bong is! (Is this a vase, dad?) With all the high-tech weed smoking apparati that have come out in the past few years, it’s easy to forget that the world’s original method of lighting up is still one of the most enjoyable. We particularly like burning neatly packed bowls of Dad Grass CBD flower and savoring the flavor of fresh greens. It’s actually how we do our R&D. Just flower and a pipe. A bubbler if we’re feelin’ fancy. And now that we’ve got our new tins of Dad Grass Flower in the mix, it’s become an excellent joint-alternative for both quick tokes on-the-go (we like one-hitters and homemade metal pipes for this) and long, contemplative smoke sessions (nothing beats a traditional Sherlock-style tobacco pipe).

What Folks Are Saying
Unlike every CBD seltzer I’ve ever tried, Dad Grass actually feels like it does something. It’s not exactly stoned, but it is a little mellow. And while the packaging is clearly labeled as a legal hemp product. when you're smoking it it smells just like the real stuff."
"Dad Grass makes hemp joints that just mellow you out, minus any and all paranoia. Smoking one feels a little edgier than sipping on a hemp seltzer but won’t lead you down a rabbit hole of anxiety." Vice Magazine
NY Magazine's The Strategist
After being sent a sample from Dad Grass, Strategist managing editor Maxine Builder has become obsessed with what she calls “the most weedlike hemp I have ever encountered.” The pleasant buzz is so effective, Builder promises, that she says Dad Grass is “the hemp product that has convinced me that hemp is actually a thing.”
"Dad Grass hemp Joints are here to help you chill like a suburban dad. Unlike THC, the primary psychoactive element of cannabis, hemp doesn’t produce a “high.” Instead, it can offer a sense of calm as well as pain relief among other potential health benefits. They come with a cool stash box, man,"
"When our parents’ generation took their first toke of 2010’s weed, it must’ve felt like the equivalent of our first dab. Dad Grass knows this, and made these all-hemp, THC-free prerolls for our folks. Your uncle can take a baby step back towards modern day THC with one of these, and he can smoke the whole thing like the good old days."
"The entire election cycle has been so stressful that it's led me to take up smoking. But only once in a while, like after a particularly rough day. Dad Grass' prerolls are 100 percent hemp, and because they're hemp joints with barely any THC all you really feel is a sense of contentment without any fogginess or other mind-bending effects."
"I love smoking a joint but don’t always want to get stoned. These joints are super mellow, and a quick hit, which is really great for 30 minutes before bed."
"I'm a hemp newbie and your joints really worked for me in a way other products have not!"
Justin, New York
"Gets you the right amount of calm without feeling like a slug. It's the smoking equivalent of having a beer after work."
Marle, Los Angeles
"I liked it for my work day vibes. Calms and centers me without totally knocking me out!"
Zack, Santa Monica
"I felt like I was sitting in a sunken couch in a kimono listening to Herb Alpert."
Your pre-rolls give me exactly what I always wished THC-heavy bud would have: all of the chill and none of the stress.
