There’s so many fun ways to consume THC from the cannabis sativa plant, but it can be tempting to choose a favorite or two and stick to them. With many different ways just to smoke the dry herb, out of joints, pipes, and glass bongs, or different ways to enjoy vaporizing it too, plus being able to consume it orally when cooked with properly, it can be pretty daunting to get familiar with all your options. Vaporizing and edibles are by far the healthiest ways to enjoy the effects of wonderful cannabinoids, with way less damage being done to your lungs than smoking, or none at all in the case of edibles. Edibles, however, are a pretty lengthy time investment to prepare and can take up a pretty large mass of kush to make a batch that’s worth the effort. Vaporizing has become pretty simple these days with some crazy improvements to the technology being made every year, but even that doesn’t quite do the trick for some smoke lovers out there. Here’s a few reasons to get yourself a nice little glass bong if you’ve only been smoking joints or pipes all your life.
- It’s super fun! There’s something about hearing and seeing that bubbling action that just makes the whole process enjoyable. On top of that, it’s a ton easier to just add a bit of water to your bong, pack a bowl, and take a fat hit, than it is to grind up your weed and pull out a rolling paper, make a filter, then roll it up.
- It tastes amazing. You get way more pronounced flavors out of your weed when hitting it out of a bong instead of from a joint. That’s because the smoke gets cooled by the water filtration and the smoke is super fresh when it gets to your lungs, unaffected by the kinds of residues which build up in your joint.
It might help you economize your stash a bit better. It’s true that since you’re inhaling all of the smoke from that bowl you packed at once, you’re not wasting any like in the case of a joint. When smoking a joint you can literally see smoke flying off into the air, which is all technically wasting bud whenever you’re not hitting it. That’s not an issue when it comes to bong, and you might find that just a few bowls of herb goes a much longer way than the half gram you usually roll into a joint.
