Joints- This is most common way of smoking and the most portable. To roll a joint you will need 1.)Rolling Papers 2.)Marijuana 3.)Notecard Filter (not needed but I like it better). We have a how to up shortly that will give a step by step process of rolling the joint. Great for passing around with a group compared to glass which can fall and break. A pack of papers is only a few dollars so this is the cheapest way to get high. Though a joint may not be the most effective way to smoke it is still a classic way to burn your bud.
Spliffs- A Spliff is a mix of Tobacco and Marijuana rolled up like a joint. Mostly joints and spliffs accomplish the same thing and what you favor depends on personal preference. A spliff is said to cause a more light-headed feeling. Personally I prefer joints over spliffs though I have nothing against them. If someone were to pass me a spliff I would hit it.
Bongs- This is my personal favorite way to smoke. A bong is a water pipe that used water to cool the smoke. This makes for a cooler hit so you can take a larger toke. You can buy a bong online or at your local headshot. To break it down:
A bong is a sealed chamber half-full with water. A pipe with a bowl on the end goes into the chamber under water level. Another pipe with a mouthpiece on the end enters the chamber and stays above water level. You put tobacco in the bowl, light it and suck on the mouthpiece. This will lower the air pressure in the chamber, causing air to travel from the bowl, through the water, into the chamber and into your lungs. As the smoke enters the chamber through the water the smoke cools down and a large part of carcinogens like tar are filtered by the water. When you remove your thumb from the hole, the smoke shoots straight up into your lungs, so beware! GrasscityBowls- A bowl is a small glass object usually shaped like a spoon that is used to smoke. A bowl is basically a glass pipe that has a place to put the weed, a carb and a mouthpiece. A cheap alternative to the bong or bubbler the bowl is a quick easy way to get a smoke in without having to roll a J. A bowls are not too expensive though you can get nicer ones the more y0u dish out. You can pick one up at your local headshop.
Bubbler- A bubbler is a type of bowl that has a lower chamber for water which is used to cool the smoke. To put it in simpler terms a bubbler is like a mini bong. An upgrade from a bowl a bubbler cools the smoke for a more enjoyable and healthier smoke. They can come in all shapes and sizes and can be ordered online or bough from your local headshop.
Vaporizer- Know as the healthiest and most effective way to smoke the vaporizer heats up the weed to a vapor form and then you inhale. This avoids a lot of the other chemicals in weed that is unwanted. These vaporizers can range in size, price, and effectiveness. For me the high is much more potent and causes more of a body high. The vaporizer also produces more of a steam rather than a smoke so it less stinky. You can also reuse the weed you vap for cooking! The Volcano is the best vaporizer but the 600+ price tag is crazy. If you want a good affordable one check out the Vapor Brothers Vaporizer.
