Bongs take up more space, but they can help you make the most of your weed and add some personality to your living quarters.
There are myriad ways of consuming cannabis, all with their pros and cons. When it comes to smoking, however, the basics are joints and bongs. Although some people find bongs inconvenient and apropos to a college dorm room, these items are effective in managing dosages and treating your lungs with a little more care than a joint ever could.
Bong technology has evolved over the years, with devices now available that can help you keep your space clean, aren’t too bulky and, most importantly, make the most of your high priced weed.
Here are 5 reasons why you should consider splurging on a good bong:
Better grasp on your dosage
Consistent doses are difficult to achieve when smoking weed. When rolling a joint or a blunt, these can end up coming out in different sizes, containing different grams of weed. When packing a bong, there’s always the same bowl, which allows for consistency and keeping better track of how much you smoke without having to count the amount of puffs you take.
A cleaner space
Smoking blunts or joints is always messy, covering whatever surface you’re working with with ash. You also need to have an ashtray where you can store the smoke, which tends to get quickly filled with roaches, papers, etc., often sitting there for days. Ash is not the most appealing of components, leaving a lingering smell and contributing to dust and allergies. Bongs allow you to worry about one piece only. These devices are easier to clean and put away, whether you want to keep your area free of weed paraphernalia or simply like to pull out your bong when you feel like having a smoke.
Longer lasting marijuana
Bongs are very efficient when it comes to prolonging your weed. Since you consume so much smoke per hit, they tend to get you high faster, with less puffs than if you were smoking a joint or blunt.
Water used in bongs allows the hits to be smoother and gentler on your lungs, preventing irritation and filtering out some of the ash that occurs with combustion. There’s also no need to add tobacco or paper, both compounds that damage your lungs.
While not everyone loves to have a bong there sitting in the middle of their living room, they can be used for decorative purposes. There’s also an endless amount of bong shapes and styles, from sleek and modern looking devices to ones that have a more psychedelic look going on.
