Chalice (pipe)

Chalice (pipe)

A Chalice, also known as a Wisdom Chalice or Chillum Chalice, is a type of smoking pipe used most often by members of the Rastafari movement. It is a sort of water pipe with a hose, or drawtube, for inhaling. The water cools and filters the smoke and the hose provides additional airspace for cooling. A screen embedded in the crater protects against drawing in burning particles to clog the interior.

The word Chalice (along other premutations such as chalwa, chali, etc.) is often used to refer to marijuana itself, which certain Rastafarians consider to be of specific religious importance as they believe it is a gift from Jah.
