Maybe try torching the joint with a lighter for a little bit, then trying again. Since the outer glass has a larger circumference than the inner glass, a gap should form between them if the glass is hot enough.

Yeah, there's no way a butane lighter is going to get that glass molten or anything. It'll leave a sooty residue that wipes off pretty easy.

In the lab when glassware gets jammed that solid, you pretty much have to toss it in the sonicator (cleans with by bombarding with soundwaves). I know that one's not practical, but I'm out of other ideas

if it's tar that's gluing it in place buy a large bottle or two of 91% iso alcohol and let the bong sit in a bath of it. Eventually the stuff will seep in through small gaps and start dissolving the tar. Let it sit for a while, check on it now and then by twisting and pulling gently on the slide, eventually you'll be able to slide it out.

Worked for one of my old bongs that got glued in.

What do you mean by dirty? vapor should still resinate it.
