Bongs are a type of water pipe commonly used to smoke cannabis. They can be made from glass, metal, or plastic. Glass bongs are the most popular type, but if you are interested in something different, you can choose a nice ceramic bong instead. You can also pick metal or plastic bongs if you want something more affordable.
Bongs work by filtering the smoke through water, which cools and cleanses it. This makes for a smoother, less irritating smoke easier on the lungs. The cooling effect of the water can help to soothe inflammation, and the cleansing action can help remove toxins from the body.
One-hitters are one of the most used methods for smoking cannabis. They look like a pipe and have only one hit of cannabis. You can find them in many forms made from different materials. The most used type of one-hitters are dugouts consisting of two chambers for storage and a one-hitter.
A one-hitter must be cleaned carefully after every use. You can do that by tapping it against a hard surface to ensure the ash is being expelled. Small cleaning devices also come with them so you can properly clean the air pathway.
Edibles are a general term that includes food and drinks that contain cannabinoids. The most popular cannabinoid is THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), a substance that gives people euphoria and provides therapeutic benefits. It takes a bit longer to start feeling the positive effects of edibles compared to other methods, which would be about 30 minutes to 1 hour.
Dry Herb Vaporizers
If you are a beginner and want to start using cannabis, dry herb vaporizers are perfect. They are specifically designed to use the herb only, ensuring you get the best experience and enjoy the effects of cannabis. They work simply by heating the cannabinoids and then evaporating without combustion, so you won’t get smoke from dry herb vaporizers.
They consist of three parts:
- Battery: These devices use rechargeable batteries, which can later be fixed or replaced.
- Chamber: The chamber is the place where you insert the herb. They are made from different materials, but the best ones are made from ceramic as it burns faster.
- Mouthpiece: The mouthpiece is the element you put in your mouth to consume the cannabis. Try different mouthpieces to find the material that suits you best.
Chillums are considered to be the oldest pipes that can be smoked both vertically and horizontally. They are very simple and easy to use, all you need to do is put them between your two fingers and inhale through the opening.
You do not need to be an expert or prepare yourself to start using it. They are perfect for micro-dosing and can fit into small purses and pockets, so you can take them anywhere with you. If you take them as a professional prescribes, you can get your desired effects.
