In the 1950s, scientists discovered dopamine.
Dopamine is a feel-good hormone that helps your cells send messages. With weed, you can open the gates of dopamine in your mind. As the THC enters your bloodstream, you can begin to experience feelings of euphoria and an overall sense of well-being.
However, you’ve probably noticed that some smoke sessions are better than others. If you’re not 100% happy with the way cannabis is making you feel, you might be smoking it the wrong way.
When it comes to bongs, bubblers, and pipes, which is the best choice? Read on to find out!
Chillaxing With Bubblers
When you hear people use the term bubblers, they’re usually talking about handheld water pipes, as opposed to bongs. Arguably, the biggest benefit of using a bubbler is the smooth smoking experience they can deliver. Unlike pipes, that have no way of cooling the smoke down, a bubbler keeps things chill.
Passing through the water, the smoke temperature goes down, and your throat doesn’t have to experience the harshness of your hit. Of course, if you take too big of a hit, it’s going to be harsh, no matter how much water is in your bubbler.
Next, unlike a large bong that’s going to draw attention in the corner of your room, a tiny bubbler can be discreetly placed on the bookshelf. Your bubbler will also be easy to transfer from one place to another since again the small size makes it portable. Another advantage to using bubblers for weed that this article brings up, is that they’re easy to handle, which makes them great for multitasking.
Multitask With a Bubbler
Let’s say, you’re planning on sitting down and doing some drawing, smoking a bowl out of your bubbler, and watching tv. If you try to do all of those activities while operating a bong, you’re more likely to break something. Whereas, when you’re just using a simple bubbler, it’ll be easy to take a puff, set it down, and get back to what you were doing.
As you take more and more puffs, you’ll start to reach a whole new high. Before you know it, you might even forget you’re smoking, and get completely in the creative zone. Or if TV is your thing, you’ll be so immersed in the show that your bowl of ice cream will melt in the bowl as it sits on your lap.
Don’t worry though, melted ice cream tastes just as good when you’re high. Lastly, avoid cheap bubblers made of plastic, and instead invest in a quality glass piece.
Enjoying a Bong High
Can smoking a bong get you higher than smoking out of a bubbler or a pipe? It depends. For starters, the intensity of your high is really going to depend on the strain of marijuana you’re using. Strains that have higher THC levels, are guaranteed to make you feel higher. However, you have to be careful. For some, too much THC can cause problems.
Paranoia, anxiety, or simply feeling uneasy are all symptoms of too much THC. If you ever suspect that you’re too high, and you want to mellow out, try smoking some CBD. CBD has the ability to counteract the effects of being high, helping you balance out.
The top benefit of water pipes is that bongs pack bigger hits. You’ll be able to inhale more smoke with each hit than you would with a small handheld bubbler or pipe. Are you planning on using a bong that has multiple percolators? Then you’re going to enjoy one of the smoothest hits of your life! Since the smoke will be smooth, it’ll be easier for you to smoke more than you normally would.
Pro stoner tip, fill your bong with ice before you pack your bowl. As the smoke passes over the ice, you’ll get to see what chilly cannabis is all about. Be careful though. The ice is going to melt eventually, so your water level will rise in the bong. If you don’t dump a little bit of the water out when the ice melts, you could wind up with a mouth full of bong water.
Should You Use a Pipe?
So far, we’ve been talking about what it’s like to smoke out of a bubbler or a bong. Now, it’s time to dive into when you should use a handheld pipe. If you’re going to use a pipe, make sure it’s glass. Glass pipes heat up the best, and they won’t provide you with any type of metallic or wood taste.
For some people, pipes are their preferred smoking method. After all, pipes are convenient to carry, easy to pass around in a circle, and there’s a ton of different styles. If you already know that smoking out of a pipe is your preferred method, then you don’t need to change it.
You can get just as high smoking out of a pipe, as you can a bong or bubbler if you know what you’re doing. First, you’re going to need a cannabis strain with a high THC potency. Next, be careful when you’re packing the bowl. If you overpack the bowl, you’ll wind up burning more of the cannabis with each hit than you need to.
When you overheat the cannabis, it’ll taste harsher. Instead, fill the bowl up with enough cannabis to keep it full, gently press it down, and add a little bit more. Next, spark up and enjoy your bud. Resist the urge to push the ball down and pack even more cannabis on top.
When you pack your bowl the right way, you’ll create a great airflow. Lastly, the trick to having a good smoking session with the pipe, or any device, is to keep your gear clean. You can use isopropyl alcohol and salt to clean pipes, bongs, and bubblers.
