Even with the vast array of cannabis products on the market today, smoking remains one of the most popular methods of consumption. While joints are the classic smoking method, they can be a bit harsh on the lungs. In addition to inhaling valuable cannabinoids, you also breathe in ash, carcinogens, and other irritants. If you prefer to smoke your buds, joints aren’t the only way. Let’s take a look at a few other alternatives to help you figure out the best thing to smoke out of for the smoothest hits.
Instead of a joint, you could smoke out of a cannabis pipe. After grinding your buds, you pack the bowl and light it. On its own, a pipe might be smoother than a joint, but you do still run the risk of inhaling burnt plant bits. To lower your risk, you can use pipe screens. You place the screen at the bottom of the bowl before you pack your bud on top of it. In addition to limiting the physical irritants you inhale, it also keeps your pipe cleaner, which can make it easier to clean and maintain.
A bong is also called a water pipe, and it offers a much smoother alternative to joints and classic cannabis pipes. While you pack the bowl and light it before inhaling, you don’t breathe in the smoke right away. Instead, it gets filtered through the water in the base of the device first. The water removes ash, toxins, and other irritants from the smoke before it hits your lungs. As such, you’re much less likely to experience lung irritation.
One important thing to keep in mind when it comes to a bong is that you should replace the water periodically. You should also clean your device to always ensure smooth, tasty hits.
Vaping isn’t technically smoking, but it’s very similar. Not only that, but it’s one of the smoothest ways to inhale cannabis.
When it comes to vaping, you have several options. You could invest in a tabletop vaporizer. Many types aren’t just functional, but they make great centerpieces, too. There are also portable vape pens, which look very similar to a large writing pen. In addition to providing smooth hits, they’re much more discreet than smoking a joint. For one, you can take a hit and tuck it away. Secondly, vapor doesn’t produce the same odors that a joint does. Depending on your preferences, there are rechargeable pens and disposable pens. In terms of rechargeable pens, you can find options for oil and options for dry herbs.
Finally, an increasingly popular way to smoke cannabis is dabbing. With this method, you essentially vaporize a concentrate on the nail of a dab rig and inhale it. Concentrates are the most potent cannabis products on the market, so you only need a very small amount to achieve the desired results. The hits from a dab rig are some of the smoothest you’ll ever take.
There are many ways to smoke cannabis. The above methods offer some of the smoothest hits, allowing you to enjoy your favorite strains with a much lower risk of lung and throat irritation. If you’re not sure which method is right for you, try them all out. You might find that you have more than one favorite way to consume your buds.
