How to Make a Gravity Bong

by

For those of you who do not know, a gravity bong is basically a device that uses the force of gravity to give you a very strong hit. They are very easy to create. In fact, I made one in 10 minutes before while my parents were out of the house. It’s easy, quick, and is one of the strongest hits you will probably ever take.

Gather Your Materials

Here’s what you’ll need to create this masterpiece:

  • An empty 2-liter bottle with the label removed
  • Scissors
  • A bowl piece (the bowl from a bong pipe is perfect, otherwise you can Google how to make a bowl piece out of aluminum foil…it’s not too difficult!)
  • A big bowl that would fit 1/2 of a 2-liter bottle easily
  • Water

Build It, and They Will Get High!

Now comes the annoying part…

(I will add pictures for these steps the next time I create one! I don’t have a 2-liter bottle handy unfortunately)

  1. First, take your scissors and cut the top off of the 2-liter bottle. You want to begin your cut right below where the label would have started.
  2. Place the top half of the bottle into your big bowl, and begin to fill the bowl with water until it is roughly halfway up the bottle top.
  3. Pack your bowl using the steps in the following paragraph. It’s a process that deserved its own paragraph…trust me…
  4. Place the packed bowl into the very top of the bottle where you would normally put the lid.
  5. Take a hit using the process in the second to last paragraph. Again, it’s a process that deserved its own paragraph.

Pack the Bowl

When it comes to packing a bowl for a gravity bong, or really any bong, you want to be sure that your bowl piece is packed, but not so tightly that there is no airflow. Without airflow, the marijuana on top will simply burn and you will waste a good majority of it. You want to grind your marijuana using a METAL grinder (I will explain the differences between grinders in a later post) as much as the grinder will allow you to. You will then want to gently sprinkle the marijuana into your bowl piece. You can gently pack the marijuana down into the bowl piece if you need to, but you do not want to smash all the weed together. I reiterate, you need to make sure there is enough airflow to enable the cherry to spread over your bowl pack. Once you have sufficiently packed your bowl, you’re ready to move on to the fun part: smoking out of your masterpiece!

Take the Dankest Hit of Your Life

Now, I know you think this weird thing you created looks…well…weird, but let me tell you that this is my go-to every time I have a party. It is the most fun thing to smoke out of when it comes to big crowds because of the intensity of the hits. It’s like the keg of marijuana smoking.

To take a hit, you need to hold the bowl piece flush against the bottle, light the bowl, and slowly lift the bottle up as you do being careful not to pull it completely out of the water. You will see the smoke slowly begin to fill the bottle. This is due to the force of the gravity pulling the weed smoke into the bottle. The water draws the smoke into the bottle. When the bottle is properly filled (as white as possible for the ultimate hit!), simply remove the bowl piece and quickly place your mouth over the bottleneck. The best way to handle the next part is to just shove the bottle down causing all the smoke to be forced into your lungs. The faster you push down, quicker the smoke will enter your lungs. I will warn new users to beware of the water. Once that nasty water gets into your mouth (assuming some bud and ash has fallen in at this point), you’ll be stuck with the taste the rest of the night. However, you can also take a slower hit where you inhale as you push. This enables you to see how close the water gets to your mouth so you can stop it!

SMOKER WARNING: DO NOT PUSH THE BOTTLE BACK DOWN INTO THE WATER WHEN YOU’RE DONE YOUR HIT!! ALL OF YOUR WEED WILL BE PUSHED OUT OF THE BOWL AND INTO THE WATER AND BE RUINED FOREVER!! ALSO, IF THIS IS SOMEBODY’S FIRST TIME HITTING THIS MAGNIFICENT BEAST OF A WEED MECHANISM, PLEASE, PLEASE MAKE SURE THEY DO NOT KNOCK THE REST OF THE WEED INTO THE WATER, OR ALLOW THEM TO KNOCK THE ENTIRE BOWL OVER AS I HAVE DONE.

To smoke this beautiful thing in front of you, you may need a second set of hands. The first few times that I smoked a gravity bong, I needed one person to hold the piece and the bottleneck while pulling the bottle up as I lit the bowl pack (or vice versa). I recommend having two people for the aforementioned warning anyway!

Now, I know this is not the best explanation on how to actually smoke a gravity bong. The next time that I create and use a gravity bong, I will be sure to add a video on how to properly use a gravity bong. In the meantime, if you have any specific questions, feel free to comment below! I would love to help!

General Opinion

I love gravity bongs. They’re simple to make with everyday household items (aside from the weed of course (unless you grow your own)), and they hit hard if created, and smoked, properly!

They’re not the best to smoke alone. The intensity of the hit can easily cause you to spill and ruin all of your weed if you don’t have a second set of hands there to help. It’s also very helpful to have somebody there to help you fill the bottle with smoke. Holding everything by yourself is tricky. Not impossible, as I have learned a trick or two on how to do it myself, but very tricky (don’t worry, I’ll share a picture or video of how to do this later as well).

In the meantime, please feel free to ask me any questions you may have, or to express any of your concerns! I love to help and if that help also enables the nation to get higher, I’m all ears!

How To Tell Your Parents You Smoke Weed

by

The biggest question that new smokers ask themselves is how to tell your parents your smoke weed. It’s not always an easy thing to do. Every situation is different. Your family could have religious or cultural reasons to not believe in marijuana, or may have had personal tragic experiences with weed. Regardless of your situation, the below tips will surely help your to plan what to say.

Explain Why

When it comes to their kids smoking marijuana, the main question parents ask is, “Why? What’s the point? For a good feeling for an hour or so?” To this, my answer has always been simple, and for some of you it may be this simple as well: depression. Marijuana has been proven in multiple studies to improve the mood of depression sufferers. You can get more information about how marijuana helps depression in my previous post, Does Marijuana Help Depression?.

If your reason for smoking marijuana is more of a recreational one, I suggest saying something along the lines of: “I have been really stressed out due to (something that is actually happening in your life)” or “(Name someone your have been fighting with lately) has been really getting out-of-hand lately.” There are a lot of different reasons that people smoke marijuana. Just be honest and respectful. Most parents will understand. If not, visit my post, Cover Up Weed Smell!

 

Explain Where (If Appropriate)

Some parents may ask where the first time your smoked was. They may have a few scary ideas in their minds. For the most part, they just want to make sure your are consuming marijuana safely. On the other hand, they probably want to see if they know the person so they can personally yell at them.

If your parent asks your where your first smoked weed, be honest! That is, if, and only if, your story is an appropriate one! Do NOT tell your parents that the first time your smoked marijuana was with some strange man your met behind a Wawa at 1:00 AM. If your need to, tell them about the second, or third time your smoked weed. If those are also not appropriate, I would definitely recommend fluffing it just a bit to make it seem better than it actually was, and/or creating a better scenario AROUND the truth (I do not support full-on lying to your parents).

Answer Any and All Questions They Have

If your parents are anything like mine, they will have a TON of questions for your about all of this.

An example of a few my parents asked me:

  • Who supplies your the weed?
  • Where do your smoke it?
  • I never smell it, how is it not on your clothes?
  • If your’re really smoking it, how have I never noticed?

The best approach to this is to simply answer every single one as truthfully as your possibly can without giving them heart attacks. Telling them your get your weed from a guy in an alleyway is NOT a good idea. Again, fluff where needed!

 

Don’t Get Defensive

Your parents may already have some preconceptions about marijuana smoking. If this is the case, the best approach would be to stay calm and not get defensive about it. They may not have done a lot of research prior to their accusations, or they may simply be upset about this news your laid on them! The last thing your want to do is explode back. This will not only get them fired up even more, but it could also make them agreeing to your smoking A LOT more difficult. Remember, your’re trying to gain their trust. You want to appear as though your are asking their permission, not that your’re telling them what your are doing. Trust me, it works SO much better this way.

Any conclusions that can be discredited by articles that your have read, use them. Don’t throw them like ammo at your parents. Again, your don’t want to become defensive about their ignorance. Simply explain that your have read elsewhere that what they believe is not true. If they ask for proof, pull up the website or article. Be respectful, and your should have minimal to zero issues.

At the End of the Day, Follow Their Requests!

After your tell your parents about your smoking, they will more than likely have an opinion or two of their own. In my case, I was quite lucky. My dad’s brother smoked marijuana as does my mother occasionally and my brother! It’s not a huge situation in my family. However, for some, it may be a huge dilemma with many opinions and threats/requests.

For those that do not have my luck in this situation, I suggest your follow any and all requests that they have for your! If they tell your to never smoke on their property, respectfully agree that your will not, and find somewhere SAFE away from your home to smoke. If they ask your to keep your weed off of their property, find somebody your trust to hold it for your, or find somewhere to stash it.

Conclusion

At the end of the day, telling your parents that your smoke marijuana should not be a huge scene. For obvious reasons, your do not want to tell your parents in a public place, around other family members that your don’t wish to know, and DEFINITELY not during other tragic moments. Wait for a quiet, peaceful moment to respectively talk to your parents about this. It’s not something your just want to throw on them. You want to plan what your are going to say ahead of time to avoid looking silly when they ask your legitimate questions.

If your have any further questions about your particular situation, or a general question about this post, feel free to leave a comment below! I would love to help your tell your parents as gently as your possibly can. Nobody should be afraid to be open and honest with their parents. I’d love to help! 🙂

Does Marijuana Help Depression?

by

I know I have been saying for a few posts now that I would tell you guys how marijuana has saved my life. I know it sounds dramatic, but I can honestly say that, without marijuana, I would probably not be where I am today.  Many of you would like to know if it’s true: does marijuana help depression? I’m here to tell you that yes, it does, but it also helps with so much more than that.

Depression

As I have mentioned in a few other posts, I deal with depression. I have dealt with it since I was only 16 years old. I have been on medication for the same amount of time. Medication that has yet to help me, by the way. I am on 100mg of my current medication, the highest dosage possible for this particular medicine, and I still wake up some days wishing that the sun just wouldn’t rise so I wouldn’t have to get up.

There have been a few things that have helped along the way where the medicine has not: exercise, food, reading. Only one thing has helped me truly conquer depression on even my worst of days: marijuana. I take one huge puff of a blunt and all my worries melt away. There has not been a blue day when marijuana hasn’t come to the rescue.

This is not to say that I necessarily “rely” on marijuana to get me through my depression. I still take my medicine every single night, I still exercise, and I still eat like crazy on a bad day. Marijuana is simply the easiest, quickest, most soothing option that I have found thus far for my particularly depressing days.

For example, a few weeks ago I lost my job. I was frantic! I didn’t know what to do with myself. I couldn’t believe that I had lost a job so close to my wedding (April 7th, 2018) close to the holidays when college students come home to work all the seasonal positions. I panicked almost instantly. I eventually was able to calm down thanks to my fiance. He pulled me to his chest and said, “Baby, we’re going to be okay. We’ll get through this. In the meantime, here’s a blunt to take your mind off of it.” The minute I took a hit off of that blunt, I knew everything would be OK.

You see, marijuana is not a hallucinogen. It simply releases dopamine in your brain (the chemical that controls your “feel good” feelings) which enables you to think on the positive side of things. You become to relaxed to worry about financial struggles, spouse squabbles, or, in my case, unemployment. It makes you live in the moment, and forget about the rest for a while. It’s the only thing I can say has truly helped my depression.

Hunger

I have always complained about my stomach. I am nowhere near fat, but I do have a gut from living a rather sedentary lifestyle. As a result, I have begun to eat less and less often without even realizing it! I would go to sleep and hear my stomach growling and begin to think of what I ate for the day. Lately, the list reads: nothing.

Since I have started smoking marijuana for my depression, I have noticed my eating habits improve greatly. If it weren’t for weed, I would probably become anorexic in a matter of weeks.

It’s not that I do not want to eat, it’s just that I have little to no appetite. This is especially true when I get changed in the morning and notice my gut in the mirror. One blunt and food is the only thing I can think about.

I try to cook healthy food options prior to smoking so that I don’t go straight for the bag of chips instead. As a result, I have lost weight, but not an unhealthy amount. I find myself eating all three courses throughout the day thanks to weed!

Bonding

If you find somebody else that smokes as much as you do, they could easily become your friend for life. After all, those that smoke together stay together!

No, seriously.

My fiance and I try to smoke together at least twice a week. Smoking causes the two of us to really open up to each other about what has been bothering us. A lot of times we may not have the courage to tell each other something important. After we smoke, we talk about everything and anything that needs to be talked about. It’s a bonding experience.

This is not only true for couples. My friend Emily and I have absolutely nothing in common except for smoking. The first time we smoked together, we spent the entire night laughing, watching movies, opening up to each other, crying, and becoming closer. Since and because of that night, Emily is my Maid of Honor and one of my closest friends.

If you ever wish to become closer to somebody in one night, smoke a blunt together. I can almost guarantee you two will hit it off in no time.

Motivation

As I touched on a bit in the first few paragraphs, smoking gives me the motivation to get out of bed in the morning, but it also keeps me motivated for hours. If I make a to-do list at 8:00 AM, smoke a blunt at 8:30 AM, and begin working on the to-do list at 9:00 AM, the list will more than likely be completed by 12:00 PM.

Just this morning, in fact, I did exactly that! I woke up around 10:00 AM, smoked a blunt, created a to-do list of around 20-25 items including things such as clean the kitchen, fold all the laundry, and vacuum. I had everything done by 1:00 PM.

Another way that marijuana motivates me is when it comes to money. For obvious reasons, I need to pay for my bills before I can buy weed! This knowledge makes me work harder as a server to make as much money as I can to cover my bills AND weed. It gives me something to work towards. Having a blunt to smoke after work also helps me to get through my shift by giving me something to look forward to.

Conclusion

These reasons may seem quite trivial to the average reader, but for those of you that have depression and have used marijuana as medicine, you know exactly where I am coming from. Without marijuana, I would be curled up in my bed more often than not. I know this is true because, before weed, I would stay in my bed for days at a time only getting up to go to the bathroom. I didn’t have any desire to eat, talk, hang out with anybody. I just had to deal with all of my negative thoughts day by day with no fix that lasted longer than an hour.

Thanks to Ms. Mary Jane, I can now live a productive lifestyle.

Glass Blunt Review

by

I have finally gotten the chance to write a glass blunt review! I have not been able to buy one until now!

Best Burn

I can honestly say that glass blunts burn the best out of everything I have ever used to smoke. You don’t have to pull too hard to get a good amount of smoke. Every hit feels like three, and every exhale leaves a cloud of thick smoke in its wake.

Sticky Situation

A big problem, and really the only problem with the glass blunts is that they tend to tar up after one smoke session. This tar is the sticky residue left over after you burn the marijuana. The good thing about the glass blunts however is that you can turn the middle piece clockwise to push any excess ash out.

Two Tips

1.) Everytime you smoke a glass blunt, you may notice the black tar beginning to add up. The easiest way to control this issue would be to soak the pieces of the glass blunt in rubbing alcohol for a few hours. When you dry the pieces with paper towels, most of the tar will come right off.

If you purchase your glass blunt from 7Pipe, it will come with a small brush used to clean the tiny holes on the mouthpiece. You can also use this brush to scrape off any excess tar after soaking it in the alcohol.

2.) The fuller you pack the glass blunt, the easier it will be to twist the middle piece into place. You will notice on the little card insert within the box that it says to pack the blunt tight before inserting the piece. Follow the rest of the instructions as listed, and enjoy!

Why, When, Where?

Why?: The main reason why glass blunts are the next best thing is because it’s easier than having to go purchase tobacco products at your nearest gas station, split the blunt, pack it, roll it, then smoke it. With the glass blunts, you can use it over and over again without having to purchase another (so long as you don’t break it). Plus, you don’t have to worry about finding a place to throw away the roach (the tiny end left from a smoked blunt) or the blunt guts (the tobacco you took out of the blunt*.

When?: Anytime! The glory of the glass blunts is, like regular blunts, they can be smoke either indoors or outdoors! If you need to cover the fact that you smoke, I would not recommend a glass blunt. Unlike normal blunts, there is a lot more smoke that escapes from the glass blunt partly due to the wide mouthpiece. If you do intend to smoke a glass blunt indoors, please read my previous article “Cover Up Weed Smell” beforehand!

Where?: The best place to smoke a glass blunt would be outdoors. The increased smoke could cause an odor to stick to surfaces even more than from regular blunts. A perfect place would actually be in your car! Hotboxing** is the easiest way to smoke any type of blunt.

Conclusion

Glass blunts are a great investment. They are not perfect for all occasions, but their benefits strongly outweigh their downsides. I would strongly recommend glass blunts to people in any situation! In fact, I am planning on buying a few glass blunts as Christmas gifts for my friends!

If you are thinking about purchasing a glass blunt, I recommend the 7Pipe Twisted Glass Blunt. This is the one that I personally use.

If you have any questions or comments, as always, please feel free to comment them below! I would also love any feedback that you may have.

Cover Up Weed Smell

by

It is not always very easy to cover up weed smell. It is a strong odor even if you just have it sitting on the table! I know the struggle of trying to get away with smoking in areas where you could easily get caught and/or in trouble. So, below are some tips that I have discovered in my attempts to cover up weed smell (in no particular order).

1.) Smoke Outdoors

The number one way to cover up weed smell is to not create a weed smell. If you are smoking indoors, there is a stronger chance of the smell sticking to surfaces, including your walls and furniture. Smoking outdoors enables the smoke to escape into the air and not into your ceiling material.

An added bonus to smoking outdoors is, when you’re done smoking, you can simply ash your smoking material(s) on the ground. Plus, when you’re done smoking completely, if it’s a joint or a blunt, simply put it out and toss it into a nearby bush (WARNING: PLEASE BE 100% POSITIVE THAT THE MATERIAL IS COMPLETELY OUT BEFORE TOSSING INTO ANY FLAMMABLE LOCATIONS!).

I understand that it can sometimes be difficult to get outside before a parent or roommate sees you. It can be frustrating and you sometimes wish you could just hop out your window, smoke, and come back in! Well, for some of you reading this, that may be an option. Nonetheless, for the majority of you out there, the best way is to smoke indoors and cover up the weed smell.

2.) Create a Sploof

PAUSE! Before you even think about rolling up a fat blunt or two you better have your tools in place! Your first tool that you will need is called a sploof. Yes, haha, funny word. And no, I do not know where the name came from or why it is named that.

Now, on a more serious note: a sploof is a device created to exhale your smoke into to mask the odor of the smoke and weed. This device can be easily crafted with your everyday household items!

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • Two Hair Ties (rubber bands work as well)
  • A Cardboard Tube of Some Sort (i.e. toilet paper roll, paper towel roll, etc.)
  • A Lot of Dryer Sheets (preferably a whole box specified for this purpose; you can buy a box at a Dollar Store for $1!)

To begin, you’ll want to begin by stuffing your cardboard tube full of dryer sheets. When the tube is properly stuffed to the brim, place two dryer sheets over each opening of the tube until there is no open spaces. When the dryer sheets are in place, wrap your hair ties around each of the openings to hold the dryers sheets in place.

This is very important, so please promise me you’ll read this sentence…promise?…OK…here it is:

DO NOT ATTEMPT TO SMOKE INDOORS WITHOUT THE USE OF A SPLOOF!

As I previously stated, the smell of weed/weed smoke can stick to all types of surfaces. You’re best bet is to just use your sploof that you have just created each and every time you smoke indoors.

To use: take a dank hit off your weed, hold in the smoke for a good 4-5 seconds, exhale with your mouth pressed up against one end of the sploof device. Repeat as many times as desired.

It’s that simple! Go ahead! Try it! Here, I’ll even show you mine.


See? It doesn’t have to be beautiful. You can decorate it if you’d like but who is really going to see you using it unless you have people that you smoke with? Exactly.

3.) Remember WLP!

WLP is the simple acronym that I remember when I smoke in an area I’m not supposed to. WLP stands for Window, Lotion, Perfume (or cologne for men). When you smoke any type of marijuana-infused device, it is important to remember these 3 primary precautions for masking marijuana smoke.

  • WINDOWS: Remember to always keep a fan in your window FACING BACKWARDS. Having the fan facing backwards will cause any smoke that enters it to be sucked out and through the window. It would also be wise to smoke as close to this backwards fan as you can to avoid any residual smoke from escaping into your room.
  • LOTION: The main area of your body that marijuana smoke tends to stick to is your hands, for obvious reasons (holding a blunt/joint, mixing a bowl pack with your finger, etc.). Therefore, it is vital to either wash your hands or, like I do, simply carry a small bottle of lotion with you when you are about to have a secret smoke sesh. For you men readers, there are many manly mini bottles of lotion out there. You just have to look in the right places: Walmart, Target, Rite-Aid for example.
  • PERFUME/COLOGNE: A final precaution that you should take is the use of perfume or cologne. If there is any residual smoke odor on your clothing or in your hair (another high-stick area for weed/smoke odor), a few spritzes of perfume/cologne all over your clothes and hair will mask it!

Follow WLP whenever you smoke secretly, and you’ll be riding Cloud 9 in disguise.

4.) Know What to Use and Where

This is a big issue that I STILL come into problems with on a regular basis: what to use, and where?

If you are going to be smoking indoors using the above methods, a bowl pipe or bong would be your best option. There is less smoke that escapes when you pull on a bowl/bong than on a blunt/joint. Plus, if somebody comes near where you are, it is easier to just set a bowl/bong down under a table or a chair than to put out and hide a smoking blunt/joint.

However, if you are smoking outdoors, a blunt would be a perfect choice. You can use a bowl or bong outdoors as well, but you can pass a blunt off as a cigarette when you’re in public if you hold it like one. A bowl or bong is very suspicious looking out in public.

If you smoke late at night, as I tend to do after my parents go to sleep, a bowl or bong would be a great option to smoke outside. The best part about bowls and bongs is that they come in a ton of shapes and sizes to fit any situation. In a later post I intend to teach my readers how to choose between the millions of choices out there … don’t worry. Go to Grasscity.com to see how huge the variety is when it comes to these products (and this is just ONE website!). Grasscity has a very long list of choices, sizes, colors, etc. and they definitely have the best prices and quality that I have seen thus far.

The complicated part of this theory is when it comes to joints. I have still not found a decent compromise for smoking a joint. If I smoke it outside, the wind tends to blow it out. If I smoke it indoors, it leaves a trace of a marijuana odor in my house. The answer is to smoke joints in your car!

5.) Hotboxing

Hotboxing is one of my favorite ways to get high. Hotboxing is when you smoke weed inside of a car with all the windows shut. This is semi-decent option for those that are not allowed to smoke inside of their house and can’t find a safe place outside to smoke either. You can take your car to an empty parking lot, or along a country road, and hotbox!

The beautiful thing about this method is that you can bask in the weed smoke for as long as you wish until it’s completely gone! Believe me when I say that this is the best high to achieve. You receive ever cloud of smoke in this fashion.

There are, however, a couple downsides to this technique: the smell and finding a place to park. The smell of the marijuana smoke will stick to not only yourself, but everything inside of your car including the car itself. The best type of car to hotbox in is one with leather interiors. The odor doesn’t stick as easily to leather. Regardless of the interior, the smell will still be present in your car for at least a few days unless you properly air it out (a technique that will be discussed in future articles). The smell will also be very heavy on your clothes as you have just sat in the smoke…literally. It can also be very difficult to find a safe place to park your vehicle where you will not be seen (or smelled). It is recommended, obviously, that you find a proper location prior to hotboxing. Luckily, I have a dead end a few streets down from mine where no houses or people are.

Conclusion

It’s not easy to cover up weed smell. In fact, under certain circumstances, it can be nearly impossible. The important thing is that you’re safe, careful, and high all at the same time.

As a disclaimer, I do not in any way shape or form encourage any person to lie to another person about their smoking habits. Lying is bad, which is why I will be creating an article on how to tell your parents that you smoke, and how to ask if you can, and where you can. Please stay tuned interested readers!

If you have any further concerns, questions, or comments, please feel free to leave them in the comments section below. Thank-you and good luck!

Blunt vs Joint

by

The main question that I hear a lot of new smokers asking, and one that I asked when I first started smoking is this: How do you choose: blunt vs joint? The choice is not always as simple as choosing one or the other. The answer depends on your personal preference. Below is a list of categories for a new smoker to think about before making this decision.

Blunts Hit Well!

A major advantage that blunts have going for them is how hard they are able to hit. If you know how to take a decent enough pull off of a blunt, it could cause you to become high off of just one hit, whereas it could take a particular person up to three or four hits before they reach this point. This is the case if, and only if, you are not a chronic smoker. You will become extremely high off of your first blunt hit if it is also your first ever, or even if it’s the first of your morning!

Blunts are also so much easier to roll than joints are. I will delve into further details of the rolling processes for each in a later article.

A disadvantage to smoking blunts is that you are smoking a tobacco leaf. Yes, if rolled properly, a majority of the hit will be marijuana and only a small percentage of tobacco. However, this small amount of tobacco per blunt could easily add up if you decide to smoke strictly blunts (I highly suggest you do NOT let this become a habit).

A second disadvantage to blunts is the taste. Yes, the blunt may initially taste like the grape that it is labeled as, but it will eventually begin to taste like ash and burnt wood. Again, this is especially true if you primarily smoke blunts.

All-in-all, I believe that blunts are a great investment. They taste great if you smoke them in moderation, they hit very well and can get you pretty high pretty quick, and they only partially contribute to lung problems you may encounter in the future!

 

Joints Taste So Natural!

When you smoke a joint, especially if you are used to smoking blunts, a joint will taste very all-natural and almost healthy! It tastes and smells almost like a summer campfire. This is especially comforting during the winter months when you wish you could travel forward to the next summer.

A major disadvantage of joints, however, is that they are very difficult to smoke outdoors. Any slight change in wind patterns can take you from Cloud 9 Lane to Frustrated Lake where you’re drowning in lighter fumes as you attempt to keep it alight. The wind tends to blow the cherry (the lit tip of the joint) out, causing you to have to attempt to relight it with your lighter. The wind then puts out the flame on your lighter every single time you try to light it. See what I mean about Frustrated Lake now? Yeah. Not fun.

Another disadvantage to smoking joints is that they tend to burn at a slightly quicker pace than blunts do. Even without the wind factor, paper still tends to burn faster than dry leaves. Science. 🙂

As I stated in the previous section, joints are also more difficult to roll than blunts are.

Nevertheless, if you feel as though you would prefer to smoke joints after this post, I would definitely recommend buying RAW papers. Grasscity has amazing deals for joint papers. Check them out here!

Gotta Hide Your Smoke?

If you’re smoking indoors, I would not recommend the use of either blunts or joints. Both tend to create a lot of smoke which will, obviously, spread to other rooms of the house. Even in my situation, where I live in my parents basement, I thought I was secluded enough to where I could smoke down there and they would never smell it. Well, I was sorely wrong. They smelled it through the sole vent in the basement that somehow had smoke that reached upstairs when they turned on the heat. Needless to say, I had to find an alternative way to smoke. I couldn’t exactly go outside because if I went to either porch they would surely see me. I resorted to smoking a bowl pipe and using a sploof device of my own creation to contain the smoke and to mask the smell. I have not run into any problems using this method.

However, if you are unable to purchase a bowl or a bong (similar concept and process required as the bowl pipe), a blunt or joint could be snuck outside to avoid the spreading of the smoke. The only downside is, as stated previously, joints burn far too quickly outdoors; joints can begin to taste horrid if you begin smoking blunts primarily; and, if you do not have a private, secluded area outside to smoke of a blunt or joint, you could easily be found if a family member and/or roommate were to walk by the door or a window.

When it comes to finding ways to smoke without getting caught, I have ultimately become an expert. I have lived, and am currently living, through a situation where I have to hide my smoking habits. It’s not always easy, but if you are truly dedicated, there is always a way. I intend to have a future article regarding ways to hide your smoking habits. Stay tuned!

My Opinion On This Topic

Personally, I just love to smoke. Regardless of whether I am smoking of a blunt, a joint, a bowl, or a bong, if I’m high, I’m happy. However, if given the choice of smoking either of a blunt or a joint, I would have to choose of a blunt. They’re so much easier to roll and they taste great in many different flavors so long as you don’t smoke them too often.

If I had to choose how to smoke for a whole week, I would wish to rotate between smoking joints and blunts. In this fashion, I would hope to eliminate the risk of dependency on one specific smoking type. You’re right. It would be odd to make a schedule specifically for smoking, but, hey, whatever works, right?

Conclusion

Whether you choose to smoke of a blunt, joint, bong, spliff, bowl pipe, or a gravity bong, if you’re getting higher, you’re getting closer to a happy, healthy, well-balanced lifestyle (so long as you do everything in moderation as I stated previously).

As always, if anybody has any questions for me, or feedback, please feel free to comment below or email me directly. Thank-you.

P.S.: Grasscity also has a plethora of vacuum-sealed jars to stash your bud in! These jars will keep the odor contained so well, you’ll forget you even have weed! I personally use one and I love the air-tight seal and odor control. Definitely better than the plastic baggie I was using before.

P.S.S.: I just found an amazing deal on Amazon! For a little under $20 you can receive a rolling tray, 2 packs of rolling papers, two packs of joint tips, a grinder, a metal paper case, a wristband, AND a doob tube. This is by far the best deal I have seen so far. Hurry before this deal goes away!

 

 

 

Pros and Cons of Smoking Marijuana

Pros of Smoking Marijuana

There is no shortage to the number of positive effects that marijuana can have on the body.

Marijuana, for years, has been proven to help veterans and others that have experienced extremely traumatic events with their anxiety and PTSD. The calming effects of the marijuana enables those affected by these attacks have shown increasingly improved results after smoking marijuana.

Marijuana has also been found to help patients with chronic pain and nausea. Anywhere from cramps, to back pains, to headaches, and pain seizures. Patients suffering from the aforementioned symptoms have shown improved results after only a short time of using marijuana.

Another facet that marijuana helps with is cancer research. There has not been a plethora of research done on this topic as of yet, but from the limited research that has been performed, something miraculous has been discovered. Marijuana contains anti-cancer properties! If researchers can tap into this ingredient, it is possible that there may soon be a cure for cancer patients. Take it a step further, scientists may even be able to create a vaccine that prevents cancer in the same way that vaccines prevent influenza and measles.

This small list hardly touches upon the hundreds of pros that smoking marijuana can have on the body. Just to name a fe more: epilipesy in adults and kids alike, opioid replacement, depression, anxiety, elevated eye pressure, insomnia, lack of apetite, and muscle spasms/spasticity.

Cons of Smoking Marijuana

As for the cons of smoking marijuana, there is the typical list.

You are still smoking, therefore there are still minor health risks associated with the smoke. For example, smoking marijuana can raise a person’s heart rate. However, this is only an issue for those that suffer from heart disease or those that already have a heart rate issue prior to smoking.

Another con would be that marijuana has the ability to lessen cognitive process, but for a very short period of time. Studies have shown slight verbal discrepancies as a result of marijuana usage, but the patients returned to normal cognitive abilities once the smoking was ceased. The short-term cognitive issue leaves no residual concerns according to the researchers.

THC overdose has also been known to cause an occasional panic attack. Again, this sort of reaction is only normal for those that typically suffer from panic attacks in their everyday lives. The THC can cause you to panic about simple, non-threatening situations which, in turn, could potentially cause a panic attack.

All the above symptoms are very rare and only typical in those that have pre-existing conditions. There is only one con that is known to affect a majority of marijuana users: munchies. You have probably heard this term thrown around quite a bit in reference to weed. The truth? It is very much real! Not every single stoner will deal with munchies, but for those that do, it is recommended to purchase snacks and food prior to smoking as it can be unsafe to drive while under the influence of marijuana. Even this could be found as a positive facet for those that don’t each as much as they should throughout the day.

Driving while high is another con of smoking. It is not encouraged for a person to drive while under the influence of marijuana. Blurry vision and paranoia are key factors that may result from weed use making if unsafe to drive.

As can be seen, the pros of smoking marijuana over-shadow the cons.

My Marijuana Opinion

It’s fantastic. I have been a marijuana user for roughly 2 years now. I can honestly say that my depression has been all but non-existent, I have been eating more than I used to (which is great because I used to go days without eating!), and I have also noticed that I am overall happier and nicer to those I care about. I cannot imagine not having marijuana in my life. In my opinion, it is a life-saver.

Worldview of Marijuana

The world is full of opinions. Marijuana, unfortunately, is one of those items that has been dragged through the mud multiple times over the years since it has been discovered. However, like all opinions, everybody has their own. The world has said such things as “Marijuana kills” and “Marijuana: Miracle Drug.”

If you wish to find negativity about weed usage, you will easily find it on a typical Google search.

If you wish to find positivity about weed usage, again, a simple Google search will help.

The point is, people need to follow their own instincts about marijuana usage without downing those that differ in opinions. Marijuana helps me tremendously, but that’s not to say that it will help another person in the same way. Marijuana can be a beautiful thing in this world if we only learn to take everybody’s situations into account.

Conclusion

I cannot tell you what to think about marijuana. I can only tell you what I have learned in my experiences with it. There are pros as well as cons to marijuana usage, but only by you actually smoking it will you actually understand what all the fuss is about.

Before you can say anything about weed, you must try weed. It’s as simple as that.

About the Female Smoker

by

First off, welcome to the Fem Smoker!

A lot of people have been curious about what I look like, so above you’ll find a picture of my fiance/soulmate of five years (we’re getting married this upcoming April!) and I!

THE GOAL OF THIS SITE

A reason I created this website is to share my opinions and beliefs about marijuana. I believe that it is honestly one of the greatest creations on Earth. It has helped me in more ways than one and I would love to help other people to have those experiences as well.

Overall, I created this website in the hope that at least one person like me would find it and utilize all the little things I have to say. I hope my advice touches just one person’s day! Even if only one joke makes one person smile for one second, I will know that this website was a success and not just a monumental waste of my time. That would suck.

WHY I WANT TO HELP PEOPLE

You may be wondering what has driven me to want to help other people. Well, I have come to the conclusion that the happiness rate that I am at right now is probably the peak. In other words, I don’t think I will ever get any happier than I am now. It’s a depressing thought, but knowing that I can help others avoid being in the same pit I fell into is rewarding and exciting and new!

I would honestly never wish this fate on my worst enemy. So, let me tell you how I fell into the pit and how I am slowly, but surely, clawing my way back out.

MY STORY

I’m going to get dark for a paragraph, okay? I thought I should give you a fair warning before you read on.

I have grown up with and around depression my entire life. My grandmother suffered from depression as did my mom, and myself. I have been on medication to correct my “chemical imbalance” since I was about 16 years old. That’s a total of 5 going on 6 years of taking pills. To tell you the truth, I still feel unhappy and as though I could curl up into bed and nest there for a few years. There were only two things that broke me out of my nightmare: my lovely fiance Kyle, and the ever-beautiful Mary Jane.

I could write thousands upon thousands of pages about how amazing my fiance Kyle really is, but that is not going to help anybody. Mary Jane, however, is a universal concept that can help everybody that uses her correctly!

If you ever need a hand or have any questions, feel free to leave them below and I will be more than happy to help you out.

All the best,
