Vortex Waterpipes is the brain child of a group of young lawyers and progressive thinkers. We knew we had invented something special. While simple in design, the Gravity Vortex was clean and excited our friends and classmates in Long Beach. With the first prototypes complete, we set off to Amsterdam to see what the world thought of our creative new way to smoke. Brought together by their passion for business and counter culture, these talented young entrepreneurs went on to win the Gold Medal at the 2006 High Times Cannabis Cup in Amsterdam.
Hailed as one of the best new smoking products in the world by High Times Magazine, we quickly gained success and notoriety. With appearances on Showtime’s television show WEEDS, the Gravity Vortex was solidified as one of the world’s most smooth and powerful ways to smoke. Having won the respect of many in the glass industry, the company set about creating strong ties with tobacco retailers, headshops and distributors worldwide. Manufactured entirely in the United States, we take great pride in the jobs we create that benefit California.
The Cold Fusion represented a major shift for Vortex Waterpipes. Our first all-glass product, the Cold Fusion uses beautiful cobalt blue scientific glass in a 5-piece glycerin coil tube. Another innovative method of smoking, users can freeze the glycerin coil condenser for a cold clean smoking experience at an affordable price. The company believes firmly in the medical movement and has donated Cold Fusion pipes to dispensaries and medical facilities.
The Vortex GLOW is the world’s first waterpipe to incorporate electronic lights housed inside thick quality glass. While vaporizers have used electrical power in the past to create heat, the Vortex Glow’s patented design uses LED lights to create vivid color-changing light while smoking. Our new line of GLOW products promises to continue the company’s high level of quality and excellence. With innovative new products available nationwide, the Vortex brand is positioned at the forefront of the counter culture smoking revolution.
