The future is finally here: weed is rapidly being legalized all around the nation. What once was used recreationally behind closed doors can now be enjoyed by all at any point.
If you’re new to the world of marijuana, you might not know how to get the right high going. For example, you might not know how to use a bong. A bong is one of the best devices to use to experience marijuana.
Need a little walkthrough on how to properly use a bong? Read on and we’ll walk you through what you need to know.
Preparing A Bong
You have that wonderful glass cylinder in front of you, but what do you do with it?
To get started, you’ll need to fill your new bong up with water. The exact amount of water needed will vary depending on the size of the bong you’ve purchased. A good marker is to pour water about one inch or less past the glass stem that protrudes from the main portion of the bong.
Next, you’ll need to grind up the cannabis you’ve purchased. You can use your fingers or scissors, but it’s probably worth investing in a grinder if you plan to use your bong frequently. You might be able to buy one from your marijuana delivery service.
Next, you’ll want to pack the finely ground weed into the bowl of the bong. Don’t pack it too tightly or you won’t allow air to pass through. There’s no need to fill the bowl unless you’re smoking with a group of people. Half a bowl or less is enough for one person.
Smoking from the Bong
Now that you have your bong is all set up, it’s time to get to the task at hand. Take a seat somewhere comfortable, and have a window open if you’re worried about smoke.
Take a few deep breaths, grab the bong around the center, and hold your mouth to the top opening. Your lips should rest inside of the mouthpiece, tight so no smoke escapes.
With your other hand, use a lighter to burn the edge of the cannabis. As you’re lighting the bowl, inhale slowly. You don’t need to breathe in yet, your intake of breath will just draw the smoke up the chamber. You should see the inside of the bong get cloudy if you’re doing this right.
Once you’re happy with the amount of smoke, you can drop the lighter. Pull the bowl from the bong and then inhale the smoke in the chamber in one big breath. Inhale deeply so that the air goes into your lungs.
Hold the smoke in your lungs for a few moments and then exhale. You should experience a high fairly quickly! Repeat this as needed.
