Weed is a truly magnificent plant. Weed’s many powers can be wonderful in many ways. It helps anxiety, it increases athletic performance and it is the glue that holds relationships together. You can’t go wrong when weed is involved.
There are so many ways to smoke weed. Damn, you can even eat weed. Edibles can be tricky to control the dosage for, so make sure you research the perfect dose before using them. This is too overwhelming for me right now.
There are a lot of ways to smoke weed, in lots of different settings, with lots of different devices.
With the never-ending parade of various cannabis products coming on to the market, picking out the best ways to consume your weed can be a daunting task.
I have the vaporizer (aka vape pen or just vape) as #1 because it is the healthiest way to get high. They smell like nothing, all while giving you your most true high. Smokeless cannabis products do not lead to the tar and carcinogens present in combustible marijuana.
Vape pens were originally manufactured as a healthier alternative to cigarettes and their use was intended to help smokers attempt to quit. Marijuana consumers quickly realized that the vaporizer’s science should be applied to their own cannabis strains.Long before the invention of any modern-day vaping devices, intrepid pioneers have used a vape instead of smoking. Vaping reduces the temperature at which cannabinoids change from solid or liquid to gas.
These intrepid pioneers quickly discovered that using a vape is better than smoking because vaporizing reduces the temperature at which cannabinoids
Cannabis that is smoked risks losing its active ingredients when it’s set ablaze. Vaping literally keeps the good stuff that makes you feel high or euphoric from being smoked.
Want a more technical explanation? Butane lighters produce flames that burn at around 3500℉. That’s really hot! Especially when you consider that your bud turns to smoke at around 450℉.
As if that weren’t bad enough, there’s more. Cannabinoids can be chemically changed into gas at a much lower temperature (around 284 degrees Fahrenheit). When you light up with a regular butane flame, you’ve got 3200℉ more heat than is needed. And all that extra heat is just destroying a large percentage of the cannabinoids you’re trying to inhale.
A new addition to many vapers’ devices is the vape pen. They operate at a temperature closer to the point of vaporization for marijuana, which preserves valuable chemicals like THC and CBD.
The issue is that vapes are hella expensive. If you are a regular marijuana user, investing in a vaporizer is worth the investment for long-term gains. But if you’re not a heavy user, there are simple and inexpensive ways to get high.
A peanut butter sandwich is the thing you smoked out of in high school when you didn’t have a bong or a pipe but had an abundance of lunch meat. The Office Depot multi-colored pencil package I ordered is supposed to be used for what purpose?
You used those mechanical pencils to poke holes in the apple your mom packed for lunch so you could make a makeshift pipe. The apple made for a fun and festive pipe that also had the power to add flavor to otherwise skunky weed. It wasn’t the ideal marijuana delivery device, but it would do if necessary. The apple is a great source of natural sugar and might come in handy after you eat too much, making you crave even more.
A bong can be a refreshing alternative to smoking out of a water pipe. Your bong is a lot like your best friend, always available when you need him and never lets you down.
A bong is one of the best ways to smoke weed because it can get you really high. The highest I’ve ever felt is after a night of partying heavily with my friends.
Bongs are most commonly made out of glass, but can also be made from metal, ceramic, and bamboo. Creations can take many forms, but the most basic are simple and complex. Some of the more common designs are:
- Carburetor bong
- Straight-tube bong
- Beaker-shaped bong
- Round-base bong
- Multi-chamber bong
- Percolator bong
- Bucket gravity bong
Waterfall gravity bong (we will discuss these last two in the next paragraph)
The key aspect of a bong is that the smoke touches water on its way to your lungs.
The apple that we mentioned above, it’s not a bong pipe, but just an apple. You could in theory make an apple into a bong, but it would require some considerable engineering.
G-pens are very popular right now. Basically, a hybrid vape pen brings together the best of all worlds.
They are healthy like a vaporizer, easy like a blunt and compact like a one-hitter. You can bring your g-pen everywhere with you and people will just assume you’re smoking one of those weird electronic cigs.
Like the bowl, the joint will always be marijuana’s MVP. Why? If you are not experiencing any issues with your idea, keep it the way it is.A joint was one of the earliest materials that marijuana was ever smoked with. It’s always a relief to know that something isn’t going anywhere, and we’re grateful for this one in particular.
Joints are a special kind of marijuana that has mainly been used in America. It can be whatever strain you like, but it is always and only marijuana. If you mix your marijuana with other substances, it’s not a joint and should be referred to by a different name.
Mixing marijuana with tobacco (as is common) will result in an entirely new product, the spliff. Calling a spliff a joint, or vice versa, just makes you look silly. Don’t do it.
It is like the difference between a car and a truck. Yes, they both have four wheels and an engine, but you’ll get strange looks if point to a Mazda Miata and call it a Chevy Silverado.The terms are not consistent. The same is true for a joint and a spliff.
On the outside, a joint or blunt is rolled in some form of paper. But you wouldn’t want to just use any notebook paper and start sketching. Smoking paper is typically made of wood pulp, rice, or hemp.
They are often glossy or waxed to some degree to keep them from burning as quickly as regular paper. Rolling a joint for the first time can be daunting, so here is how to choose between different types of rolling papers.
From this list, you can see that there are many ways to smoke weed. There are so many investments to choose from. So what’s the benefit of smoking a joint instead of all the other methods on this list?
A large number of joints can be stored and moved around easily in a plastic bag. Then, all you need is a lighter to get your ganja on. When choosing the right roller bag for international travel, one must also consider ease of rolling. Co-signed papers are easy to manage, and can be purchased with minimal hassle at a number of locations.
