In recent years, marijuana has truly gone mainstream, with the astonishing number of almost 200 million people worldwide using it regularly. More and more countries are opening up to the idea of legalizing the recreational use of cannabis, and it is only natural that the interest in this substance is also growing. This gives people a perfect opportunity to try different, sometimes surprisingly creative, ways to smoke weed.
Whether you’re bored of smoking the same old joints every time, or you want to enhance your experience, there are actually plenty of ways to make things more fun. For instance, you can decide to explore the world of water bongs, try smoking weed with the help of a soda can or make your own apple pipe. The best part is that you have a wide variety of options available and can pick and choose until you find something that works best for you.
Continue reading the article below to learn more about the four unique weed-smoking methods.
Using water bongs may not be the most beginner-friendly way of smoking weed, but it has many advantages that make it the favorite method among many experienced stoners. In general, bongs are water pipes that can be used for smoking various herbal substances, cannabis, or tobacco. They are similar to hookah but significantly smaller and portable.
If you want to experience the psychoactive properties of cannabis in a stronger and faster way than ever before, then you should definitely try using a water bong. You can choose from a variety of shapes, sizes, and materials, including bongs made of glass, ceramic, plastic, or even bamboo. Because the water in the bong eliminates the dry heat you get from a regular joint, the result is a cooler, creamier, and smoother hit.
Did you know that your empty soda cans can double as pipes for smoking weed? Not only is this an incredibly easy and quite effortless method, but it’s also quite fun and works with virtually any kind of can – there’s no need to worry about buying a specific brand of soda.
To recycle your soda can and use it for smoking cannabis, you need to create a dent in the can and then poke some holes in it. This way, after you put in dry cannabis and light it, the smoke will be able to make its way through the can. Then all that’s left for you to do is to breathe the smoke from the hole in the top that you would normally drink your soda from. Smoking weed with a soda can is great when you have nothing else around but really want to smoke some cannabis. Still, some people say that it’s not the best for your health because of the sugar and caffeine residue that may be left in the can, so try not to make this your primary method of smoking weed.
This may sound surprising, but apples are one of the most popular food items you can smoke from. To turn an apple into your “pipe,” you need to take a sharp knife and carve out a small bowl shape at the very top of your fruit, where the stem is. Then, poke some holes on one side of the apple, so the smoke has a way to escape.
If you have a pen, you can use it as your mouthpiece, but inhaling through the hole you created with the knife is also perfectly acceptable. You can’t really go wrong with this trick, the only thing you should pay attention to is choosing an apple that’s not rotten or too juicy, as this could potentially ruin your experience or make things quite messy.
This smoking method is old-fashioned, but it doesn’t change the fact that it continues to work well. Originating from Jamaica, it’s an excellent way to enjoy your weed and use something that would otherwise be just trash. The only possible drawback is that the smoke from burning corn husks can be quite harsh, so bear this in mind if you decide to try this method.
To roll your “corn joint,” you need to take the thinnest, most inner layer of the husk. The layer needs to be dry, so leave it out in the sun for a couple of days or speed things up by putting it into an oven, but be careful not to burn it. Once your husk is dry, you can pack it with weed and roll a joint. Dip the tip of your finger in water and smear it on the husk, so everything sticks well. Smoking a corn husk joint results in a nice, slow, and even burn.
As you can see, when it comes to smoking weed, there’s no reason to limit yourself just to rolling the good old papers. If you’re feeling adventurous and want to explore other options, consider the methods outlined above.
Water bongs will work great if you have some extra money on the side and want to invest in a high-quality, worthwhile product that will change the way you smoke entirely. You can also try how it feels to smoke marijuana wrapped in corn husks, turn your empty soda can into a smoking device, or see whether the apple method works for you.
