In 1998, the actiTube founder got the tip from a doctor friend to filter the smoke from the water pipe with activated charcoal in order to reduce the burden on the airways. That same evening, the first attempts were made with an activated charcoal filtered bong. Initially very critical, as he feared the loss of THC, two years later he was completely convinced of the benefits of filtration. So the idea came about to offer all friends of hemp consumption a filter that reduces harmful substances and improves taste.
From Tune to actiTube
In 2001 the company was founded under the name “Tune smart smoking”, which was changed to actiTube in 2014 for trademark reasons. In the beginning there were only a few retailers who believed in our products, but today you can get the actiTube activated carbon filters in practically every European head shop. In German-speaking countries you can get these in many tobacco shops, kiosks, late night shops, tobacconists and increasingly even at petrol stations.
Made in Germany
All actiTube products are made in Germany. We try, where possible, to work with local partners and pay particular attention to fair dealings with all customers, trading partners, suppliers and employees.
We at actiTube consider the current legal regulations for adult hemp consumers to be completely superfluous. However, we would like to advise everyone under the age of 18 against consumption because of possible developmental disorders. We recommend discreet treatment even under 22 years of age.
For the environment – bye bye plastic!
We at actiTube are very proud that we have recently been able to do without plastic in all of our activated carbon products. All activated carbon filters now come with two ceramic caps and are therefore only made of natural raw materials. All consumer packs of the activated carbon filters are made of cardboard and where possible we work with local partners to avoid unnecessary transport.
actiTube activated charcoal filters can be composted without restriction. After use, however, they are full of harmful substances (especially if you have smoked with tobacco) and do not belong in the environment, but in the residual waste!
