What is the Sun Token?
The Sun Token is a hand pipe capable of unique solar dome hits. Using the magnetic dome and a magnifying lens, low temperature smoking is possible without starting an ember. With the dome set aside, it functions flawlessly as a traditional pipe. This pipe is modular and fits standard 14mm size attachments, allowing water filtration and concentrate use. It is meticulously handcrafted in the USA, and thoughtfully designed for both new and experienced users. The body is made of cherry, a hardwood used in pipe making throughout history. It is sanded smooth to the touch, and protected from the elements with an organic 100% flaxseed oil finish, one of the most practical wood finishes available. The borosilicate glass parts are durable, yet easily replaceable in case of destruction. Everything easily disassembles for cleaning. This is rugged, functional art. It commands a show case, even after years in the bottom of a back pack. The Sun Token is a revolutionary treasure born to be passed down through time.
Think outside the bowl, smoke with star powered hits that span the solar system!
The magnetic solar dome snaps securely to a stainless steel ring in the Sun Token. You align sun rays over the bowl with a magnifying lens. Smoke will stream up and dance around the dome. Any pipe can be used for solar smoking, but a solar dome fundamentally evolves the experience in several ways.
It’s easy and fun to focus the solar beam by yourself. Even if it’s a small, hard to reach patch of sunlight
There’s no loss of vapor in a solar dome. Build a solar hit outside and bring it inside to your loved ones!
There’s no need to start an ember, burn precisely where you aim at. This means efficient, low temperature hits when compared to an active ember fueled by a fire source, or rushing oxygen.
A complex tasting experience can be achieved in 3 seconds, or built up thick and milky for over 20 seconds. This method heats lower than a butane lighter by more than 2,000+ degrees Fahrenheit (1093 C, 1366 K) leading to unique, flavorful hits. It’s fun to do, beautiful to watch, wind-proof, efficient, and ecological (cutting down on butane lighter waste).
Sunlight will travel 150 million kilometers to reach your solar pipe! This is the first product of its kind, and will usher in a new generation of solar enthusiasts. It is the creator’s all time favorite way to enjoy smoking. Each one is lovingly hand finished, assembled, and shipped by its inventor Hector Campos and a small team in Fredericksburg, VA. Own the original solar dome pipe, shipping world wide!
What if the sun is not out? The Sun Token functions as a traditional pipe without the dome. Designed as an optimum hand pipe, the internal holes are drilled to allow generous airflow and cannot get clogged. The borosilicate mouthpiece is a healthy length for smooth hits, and allows a clear visual of the bowl and incoming smoke.
Why try solar? Aside from the low burn temperature, fun, and taste- this unique way of smoking is tied to nature, and creates a remarkable experience. Being conscious of the sun while smoking is an ancient ritual that will find new fans, hopefully all over the world. For some smokers, it is not about shaving seconds from the smoking experience. Instead it is about enjoying every moment of the smoking ritual in exciting ways. This is definitely a unique way to smoke, it is unlike anything else.
Many of us also want to minimize our footprint when it comes to consumer waste products. High tech vaporizers will one day succumb to a dead battery, requiring repair or replacement within one lifetime. Other smoking methods consume butane and other manufactured accessories at a high rate. If you have a good lens, combined with a sturdy pipe, you have a smoking tool that will work forever, with zero waste. And it’s really fun to play with starlight.
Does it vape? A hit using the solar dome can be a hybrid of both vaporization and combustion. The average butane lighter burns at roughly 3,500 degrees Fahrenheit (1970 C, 2243 K). Without careful technique, this obliterates some of the material’s complex taste and components before it gets to you. Solar light focused through a small magnifying lens can be less hot, heating closer to the vaporization spectrum- roughly 420 degrees Fahrenheit (215 C, 488 K). The material dries, releasing vapor through phase change, and then combusts as the light’s focus is maintained.
It is possible to exclusively vaporize given a quality lens and technique, but it takes some practice and control. Smoking with solar energy attempts to reduce toxins and carcinogens in smoke compared to traditional smoking with fire. Solar means no lighter byproducts in your hit. It can taste sweet, and conserves your material with extreme efficiency. Solar smoking is its own unique experience, sometimes in a twilight realm between traditional smoking and vaping.
