Smoking marijuana has several benefits to your mental as well as physical health. Know the top 5 best and most effective ways to smoke marijuana.
Some people say that all forms of cannabis consumption are just as good as another and it comes down to personal preference. Naturally, we tend to disagree and are willing to prove it.
There is no way that smoking out of an aluminum can is as good as using an electric dab rig. In fact, we decided to come up with our very own list of the top five ways to smoke marijuana.
In order to be sure that the science was valid, we decided to do all of the testing ourselves. Keep reading to see the results.
The Most Bang for Your Bud
Although we may have resorted to the soda can during times of scarcity, most cannabis enthusiasts have moved on from smoking mids out in the woods.
We’d rather grab some nugs that we personally grew in a Seedo machine and use one of the many methods of smoking marijuana at our disposal.
Top Five Ways to Smoke Marijuana
If you walk into a head shop or look online for options, it is pretty easy to get overwhelmed by the number of gadgets and doodads available. The widespread acceptance and ongoing legalization of cannabis have led to more innovative ways to produce and consume it.
You don’t have to stick to rolling joints or borrowing your grandfather’s pipe.
But has science really been able to improve the enjoyment of getting stoned or are we just trying to reinvent the wheel? Here are our five favorite ways to smoke cannabis.
1. Good Ol’ Glass Bongs
Do you remember your first time ripping a bong? The anticipation grows inside as you watch your friends hit it and nearly cough out a lung.
When it’s your turn, you’re going to want a fresh pack. Light it as you pull, pull the slide, and clear it. It might take a few tries to train yourself not to overdo it, but smoking a bong allows you to appreciate the flavor and it totally gets you stoned.
Why We Love Them
One of the defining characteristics of bongs is the water within the chamber. The bubbling sound it makes when hitting it is like music.
However, the water isn’t just for ambiance. It acts as a filter between the burning flower and your lungs. It traps ash and other unwanted junk and only lets the weed smoke pass through.
In conclusion, it’s fun, it’s good for you, and it gets you ripped.
2. Gravity Bongs
Glass bongs are always good, but the good ones are expensive and tend to be very fragile. Gravity bongs can be made with household material but require you to be a little crafty.
There are several versions of the gravity bong. Some use a self-inflating bag and others use water. However, they all use a negative pressure mechanism to fill a chamber with smoke.
Why We Love Them
Both Macgyver and a physicist can appreciate the craftsmanship and ingenuity that it takes to build one. They are always sure to impress your friends or have people look at you funny.
Either way, they are one of the most efficient ways to smoke marijuana. You only need to load it with a relatively tiny amount of flower and you’re good to go.
Plus, it packs a powerful punch that is not to be reckoned with.
3. Joints and Blunts
Any list that doesn’t mention joints and blunts is laughable. They are iconic symbols of the resistance.
Who could forget when Cheech pulled out an absurdly massive joint in Up In Smoke? Could you even imagine Snoop without a blunt?
Why We Love Them
It isn’t just about how cool they look. They taste great and simply just provide for an enjoyable and easy smoking experience (as long as you can roll properly).
They are great for group sessions because everyone ends up getting more or less the same thing. When you share a bowl, whoever gets the first hit is pretty much always going to get the most greens. It starts to taste ashy after that.
Whether you prefer blunts to joints or vice-versa will come down to personal preference
4. Dab Me Up
For better or worse, the year is 2020. Say what you will about the end of times, but at least we have plenty of ways to get high.
Dabs, also known as wax, shatter, and about a hundred other things, represent some of the latest in cannabis technology. Using one of several methods, it is possible to extract the molecules that make cannabis such a special plant. Then, it is made into a waxy, honey-like substance.
The wax can then be consumed using a rig. Some people like to take the time to heat the nail with a blowtorch and add the wax. Otherwise, you can use a portable dab pen with a preloaded cartridge.
What We Love About Them
Dabs are both fun to use and effective. Using a stationary dab rig takes a little getting used to but it’s well worth it.
The different tastes you can experience are simply amazing. Not to mention, you can get really high with a small amount of good wax.
Dab pens are really cool, too. Thanks to the marvels of modern tech, you can now enjoy your cannabis just about anywhere (no lighter needed).
5. Herb Vaporizers
The advent of dabs has taken some of the thunder away from herb vaporizers. They have been around a little while but that doesn’t make them any less than dab vaporizers.
Enjoy the cannabinoids you love without inhaling any of the harmful chemicals in smoke.
Why We Love Them
It can be hard to tell the quality of wax or oils. You pretty much have to go by what the labels say and that’s it.
If you want to be in charge of what you’re smoking, herb vaporizers are the way to go,
Smoking the Way You Live
There are so many ways to get high. You could really never get bored with it. And we didn’t even begin to mention edibles.
