How to Stop Coughing When Smoking Weed

smoking a jExcessive coughing during a smoke session is not only a heinous distraction, but it can be the ultimate party foul if you are smoking with friends. Not only are they likely to assume that you are an amateur in the smoking department, but coughing can actually emit the smoke and vapors much quicker than desired, thus reducing the overall effects of your cannabis. A smooth, deep inhale will allow for the chemicals within the smoke to be absorbed into the lining of the lungs and disbursed into the blood stream at a faster rate.

How to avoid coughing when smoking weed

You need to cool down the smoke by using a bong

One of the coolest and healthiest ways to smoke weed (literally) is by using a bong. A bong is a smoking device that allows for smoke to pass through a water reservoir, you can find many smoke shops online that have way more than one bong for sale (www.HerbTools.co.uk has 100’s of high quality bongs at cheap prices). Not only does a bong significantly reduce the temperature of the smoke before it is physically inhaled, but it also helps to remove some of the unwanted impurities such as tar, ash, and residue which significantly changes the flavor and taste. Bongs do a lot to improve the sensation, temperature, and overall quality of your smoking experience.glass bong - stop coughing

In addition to the water reservoir which drastically reduces the temperature of the smoke, bong users can also pack the column with ice or simply add ice to the water to further cool the smoke before it is inhaled. Putting ice in the bong actually makes for a rather interesting experience as it is like pulling the sweet taste of weed right out of the freezer, a nice frosty hit! If you could imagine an afternoon of smoking cannabis in combination with eating ice cream, adding ice to your bong provides a chillingly delightful experience. If you have a tendency to develop coughing fits when smoking marijuana, try adding ice to your bong!

Consider buying a percolator bong to further cool the smoke

Finally, I strongly recommend that you locate percolator bongs for sale, the addition of a percolator to your bong device will do a variety of different things. Not only will it provide additional filtration as the smoke passes through the percolator, but it will send the smoke along a greater surface area of the cooler glass (or whichever material your bong is constructed from), allowing for more heat to transfer away from the smoke before it exits the bong. Holes within the percolator device will also help to break up the smoke giving more opportunities for it to cool down before it hits the back of your throat.



The coolest ways to smoke weed will not only help to eliminate unwanted embarrassment and judgment from your buddies, but it will literally create a more bearable smoke temperature so you don’t feel that uncontrollable urge to cough in the middle of a deep toke. Using the right bong and accessories can profoundly improve your marijuana smoking experience!

Why do you cough when you smoke weed

One of the most common reasons that smoking marijuana triggers a coughing response (even in seasoned smokers) is the immediate temperature of the smoke itself. Heat is a natural vasodilator and tends to exacerbate swelling and irritation of sensitive tissues, so when pulling in the hot air from a freshly lit joint or bowl, the temperature itself can illicit an uncontrollable urge to cough. It can also result in a very unpleasant scratchiness or even burning along the back of the throat. Luckily for marijuana smokers, there are several different ways to cool down the smoke and help minimize that unwanted urge. Do yourself a favor and stop embarrassing yourself in front of your friends with unwanted coughing.

THC is the inherent component of marijuana that is responsible for the frequently reported feelings of euphoria and relaxation. The soothing effects will only be experienced once this chemical has successfully reached cannabinoid receptors in the brain. Coughing while attempting to smoke weed ultimately negates the intended purpose. Not to mention, it makes you look like a beginner. Please remember, without a licence from the whitehouse smoking cannabis is illegal.
