I strongly suggest that anyone who is mixing tobacco with cannabis in their joints to stop! Find an alternative herb that is less deadly than tobacco, or just smoke the cannabis alone if you can do so with coughing.
To many people the answer to this question will slightly differ, but for the majority I am about to hit the nail on the head. When going out to buy cannabis seeds there is just a huge and crazy range to pick from. With sale lines such as ‘fast flowering, feminized seeds’ on nearly every product it starts to feel impossible to make the right decision. To complicate things further you will notice how crazy expensive some of them are, and how strangely cheap feminized cannabis seeds can be picked up from. As little as $6 a seed from a pick’n’mix shop.
What growers want from their cannabis seeds
The main points are:
- Blueberry Seeds
- High Yielding Seeds
- Quick Flowering
The sweet scent of blueberry is always a huge positive for the majority of marijuana smokers. With petitions all over the world to legalize the herb one would think legalization is right upon us.
So we want high yielding seeds, this may sound obvious to some but let me explain this choice. To properly grow cannabis it takes 4 months, that is a very long wait, we do not want to go this long and end up with a tiny bit of weed, even if it is a really nice smoke we will need more fruits for our labour!
Cannabis seeds should also be quick flowering. Obviously if you pick a sativa strain then quick flowering seeds are not much of an option, these strains are known to take up to 16 weeks to finish indoors! That makes the second rule of high yielding even more important because the wait can become half a year! That is a serious wait, not to mention if you have no marijuana to smoke in the mean time.
With new strain crosses of cannabis seeds for sale becoming available in seed shops every week it is important to pick a brand that is well known, has plenty of glowing reviews and preferably has been in the trade for some time. While I like to follow these rules I would not always advise it, I am sure there are plenty of unknown gems on marijuana seeds being sold that not many people have bothered to try, which could turn out to be some potent herb. If you have a medical card and are allowed enough plants then I would maybe go for a pick and mix and try a load crop of different stuff.
I remember the 1970’s when everyone smoked without a second thought. No one really had any idea how bad it was, I mean, breathing in smoke would never be healthy but not a single person expected it to be quite as bad as it is made out to be today. I try to keep up to date with the new facts on smoking so that I keep using my vaporizer! the gov website explains some of the research going on today, give it a read and then turn to your bongs and vaporizers!
Glass bongs come in all shapes, colours and size. But what is going to be the best option for your personal preference? Will one high quality glass water pipe be perfect for every user? or do you need to think about different statistics and make comparisons to others. Don’t worry, they all give the same end result and utilize water to make that smoke as cold as possible, you need to listen to me because I have been using these water pipes for over five years and have tested out well over 15 bongs in my time. So if you are ready to buy glass bongs over the internet then you can get all the information you need right here on my blog. Even if this is your first ever glass bong then don’t worry as lower down the page is a quick description on how to use these glass pipes.
What makes glass bongs better
Glass gives the best tasting smoke you can ever imagine. Some people can’t understand that smoke can easily be made smoother and also the opposite. It all depends on its journey, you want the smoke to glide effortlessly so if you imagine plastic, it is smooth but not like glass. When smoke comes in to contact with glass it just glides along without any friction whatsoever. This creates a certain type of magic which you will see for yourself if you ever buy a glass bong. Or if you have a friend that owns one you could always ask for a go, but be careful, glass is fragile!
How to use a glass bong to smoke weed
So, glass bongs are pretty much all the same. They have the main pipe, a downstem and a bowl. Now depending on your model the downstem might already be built in to the bong, in this case you just need to insert the bowl. In other cases your bowl and downstem might be permanently joined, this is normally the case for cheap glass bongs. They might slide in to the main bong via a rubber grommet or they might use a glass on glass joint.
After inserting these bits in to the bong you simply add water to the main pipe, not too much though, just enough so that the downstem is submerged in the water. Now grind down your herbs and put them in the bongs bowl, place your mouth over the main pipe and begin to suck. This creates a vacuum, whilst doing this put a flame to the herbs in the bowl and watch the smoke enter the bong. Cover the top pipe with your hand, take a new breath and then uncover the bong. Suck all the smoke out! Some users remove the bowl when sucking the smoke out to make it easier, your choice. If you begin coughing whilst smoking then check out our guide at the previous link
Excessive 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.
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.
The first time I ever saw a bong, I Literally had no idea what it was or what it could be used for. In my head I just saw it as a sort of bottle shaped clear plastic. With this curiosity in my mind I decided to do a bit of research on what a ‘Bong’ actually is. Here’s what I found:
A bong is a filtration device used to smoke herbal substances such as marijuana and tobacco. People like to use bongs over just roll ups because it’s a different ‘high’ experience.
Also using a bong filters out a lot of the bad chemicals that could potentially cause harm to you.
When using a bong you need to put some water inside. Not too much, but not too little either. The colder the water, the better, you can add ice if you like. The water is to cleanse the smoke, thus making it better for you than just smoking it using filter papers or pipes.
Bongs can make for a fun social experience as they come in all different, shapes, sizes, styles and types. You can easily purchase a variety of bongs and various other smoking paraphernalia online.
This is a quick briefing to help new smokers understand which design of bongs are better for their personal needs. There are so many different styles for sale on the market that it can be very hard for a newcomer to pick and choose which water pipe is best for their needs.
My first tip to any new, would be to visit online head shop and take a good look around. Online smoke shops like herbtools have all of their products separated in a very convenient way, this would be a great place to look at you will easily be able to identify what type of bongs are currently available on the smoking market.
The most common material used is plastic and glass, for new users you will be better off with a cheap plastic bong for smoking as it will be durable and last you a long time, but remember to clean her!
Remember, cannabis smoking should be purely for medicinal benefits and not abused by the user. Enjoy your herb responsibly!
