If you are an experienced cannabis consumer (a “stoner”, perhaps), this blog post is not for you. Yes, it has been a minute since recreational cannabis was legalized in Colorado, but we’re willing to bet that there are still plenty of people out there who are new to the scene, or who have perhaps only tried edibles, and want to expand their cannabis consumption horizons. This post is for those people. And we’re also willing to bet that such people would appreciate some basic smoking knowledge.
For those who don’t fall into this category, please check back for next week’s installment of the Frost Exotic Cannabis Blog. For those of you who do . . .
Welcome to the World of Recreational Marijuana!
Finding the finest smoking gadget is a pleasurable experience that lets you try new devices and learn more about the many options available. With cannabis becoming legal in more and more areas of the United States and around the world, a growing number of consumers are interested in learning how medical or recreational cannabis may help them. From relaxing after a long day at work to stress and pain alleviation, there are practically no limits.
This article will give you an overview of the many types of smoking devices and which one is most appropriate for you.
The Best Cannabis Accessories to Smoke Flower
Let’s begin with the simplest and most basic option for smoking weed: The joint. We’re a little old-fashioned, but sometimes nothing beats the nostalgic experience of rolling up a joint and smoking from your favorite paper. The good thing about this tried and true way to consume cannabis is that it’s simple to learn, easy to do (once learned), and stylish.
Joints are available in the pre-rolled variety nowadays. If you are new to marijuana, that might be the way to go. But rolling a joint yourself is a needed life skill for anyone who wants to be a true cannabis connoisseur.
In order to enjoy a hand-rolled joint, there are a few accessories you will need:
A grinder is ideal for breaking down your marijuana before rolling it in a joint. A typical grinder is a device that you put your marijuana flower into and then rotate to grind it into a more powdery consistency, better for packing a joint. A four-piece grinder is a great choice, as it has a tray beneath it that captures any residual particles and is engineered to have a smooth rotation.
You will need something to roll your weed in, and there are many different options available on the market. If you want to be more eco-friendly, try using hemp paper. Some brands even offer flavored papers!
These keep your rolling paper in place while you fill it and assist you in rolling a tight, even joint.
Pipes are as distinct and unique as their owners, and each smoker frequently discovers a pipe that they fall in love with. They’re also widely available, simple to operate, and available in a variety of price ranges. Here are a few examples of different types:
Many smokers like this type of pipe because it is small in size, easy to transport, and convenient. They aren’t intended to be especially sociable, as they store only a few hits worth of marijuana before they need to be repacked. Chillums come in an incredible variety of designs and forms and are frequently quite cheap.
Dry Hand Pipe/Spoon
The majority of people who hear the word “pipe” think of these. There’s a bowl for storing cannabis, sometimes a valve to regulate the intake of the hit, and a mouthpiece.
Bubblers are pipes that use water to dilute the smoke before it enters the mouthpiece. They’re like tiny bongs in that they employ this technique to diffuse the smoke. Bubblers with detachable bowls are easier to clean, but one-piece bubbles are more portable and less likely to spill.
Bongs are a classic among cannabis consumers. They come in an array of shapes, materials, and styles to use marijuana. There are two primary types of bongs: The water bong and the gravity bong.
Water bongs diffuse smoke through a water-filled chamber, which helps to cool down the smoke and make hits smoother. These are the most widely-used type of bong.
Gravity bongs work by utilizing the laws of gravity to pull smoke into the chamber. The water spreads from one container to the next, and the smoke fills the vacuum. This means less work for the smoker, but be careful, as these hits can be monstrous.
Benefits of Using a Bong
- Filtration: Water filtration takes advantage of nature’s own H2O to eliminate pollutants and contaminants from the smoke. The water can assist in capturing and removing bigger airborne particles, pollutants, and other contaminants that might otherwise enter your airways and lungs.
- Cooling: The ability of water bongs to gently cool the smoke before it is inhaled is one of the most frequently mentioned advantages. The burning cannabis smoke in your room may irritate the throat and lungs, triggering a hacking cough that we get when smoking marijuana.
- Sociable: Bongs are usually designed to hold a lot of flower, making them simple to share and distribute at social gatherings or while hanging out with pals.
Though not technically a “smoking” device, vapes are similar enough in nature, and widely popular, so we decide to throw them on the list.
Vaping is often presented as a potentially less harmful substitute for smoking. What is inhaled when you vape is a vaporized concentration of the active components in your cannabis (terpenes, CBD, THC, and more), without the smoke or potentially harmful by-products of combustion.
Vaping devices are often tiny and inconspicuous, with many smokers valuing the option to be discreet. They can also provide a more powerful and meaningful experience, with the active components being highly concentrated in the vapor.
