Remember back in the day where marijuana was consumed by rolling it in either a cigarillo or a joint paper? Times have surely changed since then. Millennials have taken the consumption of marijuana to extremely creative levels. The best thing about this is that while new ways of consuming marijuana are constantly being invented, the old-fashioned blunt or joint still has not gone out of style. Let’s take a look at a few of the most popular ways that marijuana is consumed.
Being one of the oldest and most popular ways of consuming marijuana, blunts and joints have been around for decades. To roll a blunt, you first need to purchase a tobacco cigar. You would then cut a line down the length of the cigar and remove the tobacco. Break down the marijuana using either a grinder or your fingers, and sprinkle it inside of the empty cigar where the tobacco once was. Then, roll the cigar, wrapping it around the ground marijuana. To seal it shut, lick the edge of the cigar and press it down, then, rapidly move the rolled blunt over a flame to dry and seal. With joints, the process is virtually the same except that joint papers do not contain tobacco and already have a seal similar to that of an envelope.
Bowls and one-hitters have only recently made their way to popularity but have quickly grown to be one of the most popular marijuana consumption methods. A bowl is pipe that gets its name from the big, round hole on the pipe that is made on the end, instead of on the side like standard pipes. A one-hitter is essentially the same but much smaller. Bowls come in a variety of sizes, shapes, and designs. They are typically made of acrylic or glass, although they can be made of metal or even wood. To smoke marijuana from a bowl or one-hitter, you would first break down the marijuana with your fingers or a grinder, then pack the bowl with the ground marijuana. you can pack your bowl or hitter by using your fingers or the palm of your hand. Another less known method is to keep your pre-ground marijuana in a container and to push the hitter down in the container to pack it.
Bongs have been around for longer than most people would expect. A bong is a water pipe that can be used to smoke tobacco or marijuana. The bong has come a long way since it was invented. Its design typically consists of a long, often cylindrical container with a detachable glass or metal bowl. Some bongs have a small hole that is covered with the smoker’s finger to maintain smoke. To smoke form a bong, you would first fill it with water. Then, remove the bowl and pack it with marijuana. After packing the bowl, reattach it to the bong. If your bong has the small hole, cover it with your finger while lighting the marijuana-stuffed bowl. Place your mouth on the top of the bong and inhale to fill the bong with smoke. Once the bong is filled, remove your finger from the hole and inhale.
While there are still plenty of marijuana users who favor the blunt or joint, more and more stoners are beginning to explore the different methods of marijuana consumption.
