Are you having a hard time separating the marijuana facts from fiction? In this article, we’ll reveal the truth about the healthiest ways to smoke weed.
So listen up! You deserve to enjoy guilt-free smoking sessions, that bring you joy instead of fear.
Read on to learn about 4 healthy weed-smoking options.
1. Vapes and Weed Health
Vaporizers are first on our list of clean ways to smoke weed. However, it’s important to note that whether your vaping or smoking weed, there’s always going to be an impact on your lungs. The trick is to find the best ways to minimize that impact, to help keep your lungs safe, and that’s where vapes come in.
If you’ve never used a weed vaporizer before, you’re in for quite a treat. Vaporizers are specially designed to heat cannabis to the perfect temperature. Once the cannabis reaches the right temperature, the cannabinoids release and converts to vapor.
Buying a Safe Vape
To get the cleanest vaping experience, you’ll want to make sure you buy a quality vape. The market is full of different vaping options, from super cheap, all the way to high tech options that interact with your smartphone.
While you don’t need to rush out to buy the most expensive vape options, you must avoid buying a cheap or poorly made vape pen. Cheap vapes can easily overheat or underheat, which will ruin your vaping experience.
After all, if the vape doesn’t reach the perfect temperature, the cannabinoids aren’t going to vaporize. Without the cannabinoids vaporizing, you’ll just be wasting your money, and not getting high.
Luckily, by purchasing a trustworthy vape, you can avoid all of the frustrations poorly made models bring. Simply do a quick online search, and read the customer reviews to find out if the vape you’re considering has a good reputation.
Choose Dry Flower Vapes
Traditional vaporizers that use dry marijuana flowers are healthier than cartridge vapes. Why? Cartridges usually have additives put in them, and those additives can irritate your lungs.
2. Benefits of Using a Bong
Have you ever taken a hit of weed from a pipe that made your throat hurt? When cannabis smoke is too harsh, it’s either because your smoking low-quality bud, or because the smoke is too hot. Luckily, bongs can filter the smoke, thus cooling it off before it reaches your lips.
Studies show that water filtration can also remove substances that are toxic to your lungs. For instance, bongs can remove both acetaldehyde and acrolein, which are 2 dangerous toxins.
The best part is that if you decide you want to use a bong, you’ll have a wide variety of options to choose from! Simply make sure you purchase from a reputable manufacturer, like grav labs, to ensure you receive a quality product.
Tips for Using Bongs
Bongs can do more harm than good if you don’t know how to use them properly. For starters make sure you always keep the water in your bong clean. You should change the water after each smoking session. If you’re having a particularly long smoking session, it can’t hurt to change the water after a few bowls.
Next, to cool the smoke off, even more, try adding some ice to your water pipe. However, be careful to notice when the ice melts, since this will raise your water level. If the water level’s too high, you could accidentally wind up with a mouthful of water, and that’s never fun.
Finally, try buying a precooler to attach to your bong. Precoolers attach to the bong’s downstem, and they can make your hit extra chilly, and filtered at the same time.
3. Stick With Glass Pipes and Bongs
As you set out to buy your next pipe or bong, you’ll notice there’s a lot of different materials to choose from. You can find plastic pipes, ceramic bongs, there’s even smoking gear made using bamboo and metal.
However, while it may be fun to consider buying a bamboo bong, it’s not fun using it. The marijuana smoke will taste harsher when you use any material other than glass.
It’s the equivalent of drinking a beer out of a bamboo cup versus a glass one, which do you think would taste better? The glass cup of course! G
lass is flavor neutral, so it won’t alter the taste of your weed. Glass is also a great option because it’s easy to clean.
4. Practice Marijuana Health Hygiene
Do you clean your dishes after eating off of them? Your smoking gear deserves the same treatment. Not only is clean gear important for weed health, but it’ll make your weed taste better.
How to Keep Your Smoking Gear Clean
You can go to your local smoke shop and buy a cleaner made especially for glass bongs and pipes. However, if you want to save money, it’s easy to make a cleaner all by yourself.
Rubbing alcohol or isopropyl alcohol is an effective cleaning agent. Simply soak your bong in the rubbing alcohol, and let it sit for the night. In the morning, rinse out your bong or pipe and notice how much resin has come off!
Next, white vinegar is good for removing stains from hard water. Finally, if the rubbing alcohol didn’t do the job, try adding salt with it. Epsom salt tends to work the best.
