Vortex Waterpipes were invented by a group of young lawyers in Long Beach. They wanted to create something that was simple in design, but clean and progressive by nature. Not too long after, these entrepreneurs went off to Amsterdam to win the Gold Medal at the 2006 High Times Cannabis Cup in Amsterdam. Hailed as one of the greatest smoking products in the world by High Times Magazine, Vortex Waterpipes quickly gained success and notoriety. To take it further, they were even featured on Showtime’s television show WEEDS. Made entirely in the United States, Vortex takes pride in the quality product that they create.
