There’s nothing like a classy glass bong to ensure you get the most bang for your buck when you smoke. That said, glass breaks easily, and the glass bowls on bongs are probably the easiest thing to break. If you break yours and don’t have a replacement handy, your bong is out of duty until you get a replacement, the cycle of buying and breaking continues indefinitely.

Playing the game with your “enhanced” status will add to the fun and the hilarious answers you will all come up with together. It’s another ducking great weed smoker gift and probably beats watching repeats on Netflix.
3. The Invincipole
If this sounds like a familiar name, it’s because it’s made by the folks at Invicibowl (that’s us!). Bowls aren’t the only thing to break; downstems break too. The Invincipole is an aluminum downstem that will never shatter. Combined with the Invincibowl, these two bong accessories will never fail and together let virtually zero ash into your bong. It’s a fantastic gift for a weed smoker who needs a reliable downstem.
4. Green: A Field Guide to Marijuana
For the sophisticated and curious pot smoker, Green: A Field Guide to Marijuana is the perfect manual. This read is filled with incredible photography and details of 170 different bud strains. You could call this the essential guide to weed, and is the perfect gift for any weed smoker.
5. The Invinci-bundle
We have nailed it with this bundle! If your gift receiver needs both a bowl and downstem, this is the ultimate combination. The Invinci-bundle combines the Invincibowl and Invincipole.. These two products working in tandem give you an indestructible combination that pairs perfectly and lets virtually no ash into the water.

Creating Change with Ashley and Nikki
Ashley and Nikki are twin sisters from Chicago, Illinois. Both with spinal cord injuries sustained in a car accident in 2019. We had an opportunity to learn more about their incredible story and how they use cannabis to manage their daily lives. Nikki is a T6 paraplegic and Ashley a C4 quadriplegic. You can visit their Instagram’s for more information about their journey!
Tell us about your Instagram accounts and, Nikki about your YouTube account.
A: Our joint page started to keep people up with our recovery and we continue it to educate people on spinal cord injuries and just our lives. My personal account I’ve always had and now that I’m disabled, I use it to advocate for the disability community, break the stigma around weed, and just show a little quad girl living her life.
N: I started my Instagram before my accident. However it wasn’t until after my injury where I thought it would be a cool idea to share our story on a platform that could be around forever or at least how long we wanted so we started our Instagram page @ashleynikkistory. Then on the other hand I still share a lot of my personal story on my personal Instagram because Ashley and I’s journey, although very parallel, are also very different. So both pages serve their purposes in sharing this journey. As for my YouTube channel I’ve been taking a little break due to technical issues and not having the equipment to get out as much content as I want. My phone couldn’t hold anymore. However my YouTube serves a similar purpose. I want to show a Chicago disabled girl living her life because I think we need more of our stories told to normalize disabled individuals in society. So subscribe to my YouTube channel and binge some videos and be ready for some videos to come hopefully next year.
I learned from you two that September is Spinal Cord Injury Awareness Month- Are there other causes or organizations you'd like to mention?
A: There’s so many causes that I don’t even know about all of them. August was Disability Pride month which is pretty cool. The Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation is a great resource for spinal cord injury education and advocacy. And then honestly if you use social media, find disabled creators and others that are sharing their disabled experience because we know the experience best and just hearing from us directly is the best way to learn about other causes and organizations as well.
N: I think it’s important to mention that we should be amplifying disabled voices every month, not just the months dedicated to them because disability is more normal than people think and the more we share that, the more we normalize it.
What was your first introduction to cannabis as a medicine?
A: I started using cannabis medically after getting injured. Before my injury, I had tried it a few times but never really felt the effects. I started medicating with edibles and was noticing an effect on my quality of life. One day I decided to try flower and have been medicating with it ever since.
N: I first experienced cannabis before my injury however it wasn’t until after where I began to use it medically. Long story short in the hospital and some of the rehab I was on strong pain meds. I honestly felt like I couldn’t function without them. My pain was and still is very uncomfortable and painful. One day I decided I didn’t want to be on all these pills anymore. I told my doctor I wanted to get off all the meds cold turkey, he wasn’t too for it but I was pretty stern on where I stood and didn’t take pain medicine since then. It wasn’t until I got home from the hospital when I wondered if marijuana would be beneficial for pain. I started smoking usually before bed to help me sleep and then I saw how much it helped with my pain so I started to incorporate it into my routine as medicine and it’s been beneficial since!
How does cannabis help you?
A: Cannabis helps me live a more comfortable life as a disabled woman. It helps with my appetite and anxiety the most. Ever since becoming injured, I never have an appetite and my anxiety is much worse, but with cannabis I find that it will get me hungry and also help me to manage my anxiety especially when being around people or going to events. It also helps with my pain especially my nerve pain which can feel so uncomfortable and my neck and shoulder pain (basically all the chronic pain I feel) - a nice sesh definitely helps with that. I also will occasionally use it to help me sleep if I feel anxious before bed. Cannabis helps me a lot obviously and I love it.
N: Cannabis helps me a lot. Like I mentioned it helps me with sleeping because I do struggle a lot to sleep now and it’s not fun at all so cannabis helps tremendously! I also find that cannabis helps me with my anxiety which is really bad after my accident. It also helps me get an appetite but usually edibles are more effective for me personally to give me an appetite. Then the biggest game changer with cannabis is it helps me function with pain. My pain is really bad every single day all over my body and cannabis doesn’t get rid of it but it makes the pain more manageable to just be able to get stuff done or else I’d be miserable and hurting!
What is your favorite way to consume cannabis?
A: My favorite way to medicate is with a nice bong rip for sure. I love using my invincible pieces with my bongs too!
N: My favorite way to consume cannabis recently is honestly dabbing! I’ve found dabbing for me personally requires less and is more effective. Then on the other hand I love a king palm or joint to medicate with as well.
What does disability pride mean to you?
A: Disability Pride to me means loving all of your disability experiences and honoring those experiences and feelings they bring. It’s living your best disabled life however that looks and it’s knowing you’re worthy of a beautiful life!
N: Disability pride to me is loving yourself fully inside and out, and with that comes your disability. Having disability pride is recognizing and accepting your disability and being proud of it!
Define ableism and internalized ableism.
A: Ableism is all the messed up things we’re taught about disability and internalized ableism is the ableism we deal with when looking within. Ableism is the lack of accessibility and inclusivity. Ableism is ignoring or belittling disabled people and disability rights. If you can, educate yourself on ableism and how it affects disabled people and society in general.
N: Ableism is the discrimination in favor of able-bodied individuals. Then internalized ableism is ableism within the disabled person. A short explanation is a lot of people become disabled later on in life and as a society we are so accustomed to these thoughts and discrimination against disabled people that when we become disabled ourselves we internalize that and struggle with relearning our ableist thoughts.
Does internalized ableism affect your disability pride?
A: It doesn’t affect my pride necessarily. I’ve reached a place where I love who I am now and I wouldn’t change this me and that means taking pride in my disability because it’s a huge part of me. I think where my internalized ableism is affected the most is in knowing I won’t receive or get the same opportunities because of my disability and that can bring me down when I’m thinking about it.
N: internalized ableism does not affect my disability pride. Don’t get me wrong I have my days where I am so over this life however I think I’ve done a good job at realizing I’m worth it with or without the chair.
Has your disability made you view everyday situations differently?
A: My disability has made me appreciate the little things more and has made me appreciate all that my body does for me. As for everyday situations, I’ve learned to not spend too much time worrying about things I cannot control and to also make sure I’m doing at least one thing for me daily that makes me happy because this could all be gone tomorrow and I learned that the hard way so just appreciate life forreal.
N: My disability has made me view everyday situations differently in that in short, cheesy terms I’m so thankful to just be here. I know that sounds cheesy. You know my sister and I have gone through a lot after this injury. We lack support and don’t have the best home environment so it’s been a struggle and I think with the mindset of just being happy to be here has really gotten me through my darkest days. So I guess my disability has made me view everyday situations less stressful and more just it is what it is!
How has your mindset contributed to the growth of an awesome community?
A: I would say that my mindset has contributed to the growth of an awesome community because I’m much more comfortable in who I am now and because of that I’ve been able to connect with some amazing people in the disability community and be a part of making disability more normalized and less ‘ableized’ in society.
N: My mindset has contributed to the growth of an awesome community by being open to it! When I first got injured for a couple months I was like I don’t want to meet no one in a wheelchair like me. I quickly realized how helpful it would be to have people in the community to confide in and learn from. This community has helped grow my mindset honestly. It just took me being open to being involved in the community to start growing. My sister and I have become a part of such a beautiful, welcoming community. I started my YouTube channel after being told our story was interesting and should be told. We became a part of a live YouTube show once a month that contributes to the community. We both have been able to become ambassadors for brands we really enjoy like Invincibowl. Changing my mindset really opened doors and hopefully my sister and I can get to do more within the community and out of it as well.
Why Stainless Steel Screens Are Better Than Brass
One component of smoking from a piece that’s often overlooked is the usage of screens. Mainly, which material is more effective: brass or stainless steel pipe screens? Screens guarantee a cleaner smoking experience, but not all screens are built alike. The type of metal you choose could significantly alter the taste of your herbs.
Why use screens?
Using a screen can notably reduce the amount of particulate matter deposited into your bong water. The ideal screen is durable, precision engineered to fit your existing setup, and can withstand the heat of your lighter.
But, the real difference between brass and stainless steel pipe screens is how they deal with the heat from a standard lighter.
Hidden Risks of Brass Screens
When it comes to brass or stainless steel pipe screens, there are several things to consider. Although brass screens are slightly cheaper, you certainly get what you pay for. Traditional brass screens burn to a crisp since they have unstable states of matter and are more susceptible to heat.
So, just how susceptible to heat are traditional brass screens? It's low melting point of 898˚C is no competition for your lighter which can produce a flame reaching 1970˚C at the hottest point. It's no wonder a pocket lighter could burn a hole right through the center of the screen.
Repeated and prolonged exposure to harmful chemicals may produce health deterioration. The intense heat will produce a metallic taste that will contaminate your smoke and general well-being.
What About Stainless Steel Screens?
Stainless steel screens offer the best filtration without the anxiety of pollutants. While they are marginally more expensive, the design and capabilities alone make it worthwhile.
These hearty screens have a melting temperature over 1450˚C which makes them nearly invulnerable to a pocket lighter or mini-torch. A single screen has been cycled hundreds of times without material integrity breakdown! These high-quality barriers are a sustainable and more reliable option.
Find Your Screen Now
As you can see, when it comes to the best bong screens, the wisest choice is stainless steel. If you are already a fan of the indestructible Invincibowl, you already know about the quality screens. New screens are easily available direct from Invincibowl in convenient 25-packs.
Each screen is guaranteed to last for 20 smoke sessions, That means a single 25 pack of screens yields 500 bowls! You won’t need new screens for quite a while. The screens also make bowl cleaning a breeze; simply invert your bowl to empty ash using our one-of-a-kind Secure-Screen System. The screens are fine enough to trap the ash but not so fine that airflow is restricted.

Invincibowl: One Of The Cleanest Ways to Smoke Weed
It may be common knowledge that bongs are one of the cleanest ways to smoke weed. However, many smokers may not be aware that typical glass bowls and downstems severely impact their clean smoking experience. Most bowls are not made to fit screens and, what’s worse, the screens you commonly purchase at a smoke shop are made of woven mesh that will only last a few tokes before they clog up.
There are solutions that can elevate your smoking experience, whether it is weed or tobacco, and we want to break it down for you as your trusted friends in the industry.
Clean Smoking: A Growing Consideration
Since Colorado passed amendment 64 in 2012, the state has seen a surge of sales in the marijuana industry, boasting well over $10 billion since legalization and billions in tax revenue. Legalized marijuana has become a facet of day-to- day life as more Americans begin to welcome the benefits of cannabis.
You no longer have to subject yourself to using a dirty bong day after day. Pair our accessories with your bongs to experience the difference — it’s the cleanest way to smoke weed!
A Clean Bong Sparks Joy
Most who have dabbled in weed are aware of how a bong works. It all comes down to how the smoke gets filtered. The smoke travels from the bowl into the downstem and then gets filtered by the water before ascending the bong’s neckpiece. The water does a lot of filtering, but what if there was another way? A better way?
Traditional smoking screens do not effortlessly glide into your bowl. They are jammed into place and held by way of resin. Most will also burn to a crisp within a few uses. That's not even the worst part! Conventional brass screens leak contaminants such as zinc and copper, which is hazardous to a user’s health. TheInvincibowl'sshatterproof design is equipped with a propriety high-flow meshsmoking screen. It's held in place via our revolutionary Secure-Screen technology. This allows the user to easily tap out herbal ash without losing the screen in the process and also provides a clean smoking experience.
Glass downstems are incredibly fragile. Eliminate the hassle and provide additional protection by investing in an Invincipole. The component is unbreakable, retractable, and houses a second screen. The durability and functionality are unbeatable.
Glass bowls and downstem combinations release ash and other waste elements into the bong water. As you can imagine, increasing the concentration of ash and waste elements in bong water makes the water less effective at filtering smoke. More waste elements in your bong water give rise to airborne particles that can bubble up from your water when pulling in medicated smoke, and travel into your lungs. Pairing the Invincibowl and Invincipole with your bong will remove nearly all of these harmful particles, giving you the cleanest way to smoke weed time and time again.
Clean Smoking with Invincibowl?
Owning a bowl and downstem is essential. Selecting from a variety of vibrant colors is even more essential. Pair your bowl and downstem in matching colors or collect them all for a fun mix-match!
Your bundle will pay for itself within the first 3 drops. Plus, we offer a lifetime warranty! TheInvinci-bundlewill save you cash and save your lungs from ash, what's not to love?
Hey Dudes! ????????Today we get to share an interview with two awesome individuals. The Houkals came together to create "The last bowl you'll ever need". Introducing the creators of the Invincibowl; a stainless-steel bowl PERFECT for those of with disabilities that affect our hands. So, without further ado ... Tell us about yourselves!
Jeff & Gloria: We are Jeff and Gloria Houkal. Invincibowl was created by Jeff, a mechanical engineer with years of experience in product development- inventor of 7 patents. After I, Gloria, broke three glass bowls in the span of 3-4 weeks, he decided he’d had enough so, Jeff set out to create a bowl that did not break and had a captured screen that does not clog easily or burn to a crisp.
*Image description: Three photos of an orange metallic herb bowl. The background is a flower garden.
Jeff & Gloria: The concept quickly went from prototype to launching an actual business. He became a CEO while still working full-time as a mechanical engineer, doing part-time engineering consulting work, and while still working in the entertainment industry as an actor, producer, and visionary jet setter. I became CMO and we've been running ever since. We have found an amazing support system within the cannabis community and I believe we can change the industry standard.
A&A: We were sold the moment you said "unbreakable" and "orange". Amanda breaks bowls all the time because she has neuropathy in both their hands. It makes it even better that it is family created and owned.
You said you've broken your fair share of glass bowls. How did you first discover cannabis?
J&G: I discovered cannabis almost a decade ago when I first began to struggle with my own health. I quickly fell in love with how many diverse medicinal and recreational uses cannabis has. When Jeff asked if he could also indulge- I was thrilled to open him up to the experience. Jeff says, "I use cannabis to better my mental health. I am more present, creative, and simply enjoy the high." I love that we marvel together at its versatility.
A&A: We are the same way. We are always reading and learning new things about cannabis. We marvel at its versatility too! Can you explain what the InvinciBOWL™ is?
*Image description: Orange metallic herb bowl. This is a view from above to show the insert, screen, and handle with thermal covering.
J&G: Invincibowl is a direct replacement to traditional glass bowls and will fit snugly into your existing 14mm setup. The Invincibowl is crafted from aerospace grade aluminum and surgical stainless steel. It also comes equipped with a silicone grip guard to further protect the bowl handler. A 1/4 turn counterclockwise of the screw will release the stainless steel insert and the biomedical grade screen it holds in place. I love the fact that I can finish a bowl and simply tap out the ash without having to stick my pinky in to readjust the screen or replace it. Every unit comes with spare screens to allow the user to really test the durability, easy operation, and cleaner smoking experience.
A&A: We have tried it a good TEN times now, and we can safely say ... it is easy to use, clean, AND IT DOESN'T BREAK! What do you hope to do in the next 5 years?
J&G: We hope to continue to stay innovative and responsive to the cannabis community and its needs- always bringing our very best!
We know you will be! Hit them up on Instagram with anymore questions @Invincibowlofficial or at invincibowl.com

Mechanical engineer, actor and producer Jeff Houkal watched his wife, Gloria, break three glass bowls in a month
If you’ve ever owned a glass bowl, you feel Gloria’s pain.
Houkal went about creating a bowl that did not break, and thus, the Invincibowl was born.
Great for both experienced smokers and novices, the Invincibowl contains secure-screen technology, which is made of proprietary mesh, that allows for 20+ bowls to be smoked before clogging.
Also created by Invincibowl, is their Invincipole.
The Invincipole, which is crafted from anodized aluminum, utilizes telescoping technology to extend or contract to fit any 18mm bong.
If you’re a hiker or enjoy spending time outside, take your Invincibowl and Invincipole along for the ride!
All of their products can withstand any environment. Invincibowl retails at $30 and the Invincipole is $45.
Introducing the Invincipole
Xymetric LLC entered the cannabis arena with our revolutionary Invincibowl- completely changing the sustainability and smoking experience of bong bowls. Now, our new product has launched and offers an even superior smoking experience: The Invincipole
The Invincipole features the world’s first Telescoping Technology for a downstem, extending from 3 inches – 5 ¾ inches fitting nearly all of the commonly distributed bongs. The precision lightning ridges make for easy sliding to configure the down stem to your unique bong. The inner silicone O-ring and precisely designed down stem tube creates a perfect seal for a completely leak free experience. The Invincipole features a percolation diffuser which increases water filtration of the smoke, while also removing more particulates from entering the lungs. When the percolating diffuser is loosened, it exposes a stainless-steel screen that completes the bong water defense system unique to the Invinicibowl/Invinicpole combination, ultimately keeping your glassware cleaner, longer. Keeping with tradition we include one screen in the assembled product and an additional two extra screens for a continued hassle free experience.
The only maintenance required of the Invincipole is to change out expired screens. Our general guidance is, when you are ready to replace your bong water, then you are ready to swap out your Invincipole screen.
Commonly distributed brass screens have been around for decades but, are quick to degrade since brass has a relatively low melting point. They also contain zinc and copper which will contaminate your smoking experience. While alternatives such as glass or quartz screens are reusable, they require tons of patience as tenacious cleaning and gentle handling are required. Our proprietary screens are made of durable stainless-steel and feature a high-flow shield which does not easily get obstructed.
Also the Invincipole is completely corrosive resistant for your cleaning needs. The Invinicpole is made of stainless-steel and anodized aluminum and silicone which all of which are safe from degradation and will not ever need replacement.
Now that the Invincipole has been released in several markets across the United States and Canada. Customers from around the world will be able to enjoy their favorite bowl with a sturdy downstem.
We are super excited to showcase the benefits of cleaner glassware when the Invincipole is paired with the Invincibowl. We have released a video to demonstrate the benefits of our combined system. Take a look!
Today’s cannabis enthusiasts may be enjoying the highest quality cannabis that’s ever existed in the history of the plant. But if you haven’t invested in the proper equipment to consume it with, you might be engaging in the cannabis equivalent of drinking Dom Perignon out of a juice box.
Whether you are an avid cannabis smoker or just beginning to venture into the overwhelming utility of the plant, at some point, we must accept the loss of our glassware as part of the experience. Before you grieve the demise of your bowl, however, consider the wildly futuristic unit known as, Invincibowl. This ultra-sleek shatterproof component is crafted from aerospace-grade aluminum and 304 surgical stainless steel. The unique gadget is available in 5 vibrant colors that accentuates any 14mm compatible bong.
