Lucky for you, more and more states are legalizing marijuana each year. You know what that means?
It means that weed—you know, bud, hash, herb, grass, reefer, chronic—is going to be easier to get!
If you're new to smoking weed, welcome! On behalf of all stoners, occasional tokers, and marijuana aficionados we are happy to have you.
Wondering what the best way to smoke weed is for a beginner?
We can teach you!
Read through this beginner's guide to smoking weed and learn everything you need to know to get started.
Best Way to Smoke Weed
First things first. Smoking weed for the first time is easier to control than eating an edible. Even with a measured edible from a reputable source, you need to be very cautious about the dose of THC and CBD.
For beginners, even a starting dose around 10mg (which is standard), could be too much and cause an undesirable effect. Woah, I'm too high man.
It usually takes people longer to start to feel the effects of edibles as well. Everyone knows someone (or is that someone) who took half a brownie and only waited ten minutes before taking the other half because they didn't feel anything.
So unless you are very anti-inhalation, you should try smoking weed as your first experience.
Here are a few different ways to smoke weed.
Today, marijuana is legal in 11 states; 33 if you count the ones where it's legal for medical use.
Whether you're interested in recreational or medical use, there are several ways to consume marijuana. For most, the easiest is through smoking it.
In order to smoke cannabis, you need the right setup. While you can roll it up into a blunt, you can also smoke it out of a bong.
Are you looking for the best bongs on the market? Then keep reading. We'll show you how to get the most bang for your buck.
Is It Glass?
The best bongs on the market are certainly glass ones. Not only does a nice glass bong look amazing, but the material is also chemically neutral, meaning the bong won't be toxic to use. It won't affect the taste of cannabis either.
That's not to say you shouldn't consider an acrylic bong. Glass is naturally fragile, and there's a reasonable chance that even the toughest of glass bongs will end up broken one day. The main advantage of acrylic is it won't end up ruined if you drop it on the floor.
If you do choose to go with an acrylic bong, make sure you buy something from a reputable manufacturer who can vouch for the material it's made from. The thing with cheaper acrylic bongs is they're typically manufactured overseas, so you never quite know what you're getting. Some types of acrylic could create toxic chemicals when it's heated by the smoke.
Is the Glass Thick?
When buying a glass bong, you should look for something that has thick glass. Thinner glass is much more likely to break in the event of an accident and particularly thin glass might end up cracking all by itself.
Generally speaking, a smaller bong with reasonably thick glass is better than a large bong with thin glass. A sufficiently thick glass bong could be knocked over and still come out unscathed, but the same can't really be said for one made of thinner glass.
You should approach cheap glass bongs from online vendors with caution. Quite often, these come from sellers in China, and they're of inferior quality compared with something you could get in the US.
Generally, the glass used is thin and of poor quality. You might save money in the short term, but with such a cheap bong, it's inevitably going to shatter.
Seen in movies, TV shows, and advertisements alike, a bong is one of the most common ways people can think of to smoke marijuana.
In the states that have passed legalization laws, The legalization of marijuana has brought the accessibility of marijuana to everyone over the legal age. Now, people are smoking out a variety of products.
The most common debate currently is bubbler vs bong. Both pieces serve the same general purpose, but keep reading below which one is for you!
Facts: The Bong
A bong is traditionally a long piece made of glass.
But what is a bong? A bong in simple terms is a device that uses water. The base of a bong is meant to be filled with water. Then a mouthpiece and a small steam piece will be put into a small hole in the side of the base of the bong.
Some bongs come in different patterns and designs.
The more things going on in your glass piece, generally, the more expensive the piece will be. The change in legalization has changed the market though, with bongs being made of rubber, some glowing in the dark and some having ice cube holders in them to mellow the harsh smoke.
Not all bongs are identical, but the signature of the piece, the largemouth opening on top makes it hard to mistake!
