A lot of us like to smoke weed. Chances are if you’re reading this, so do you. As weed becomes more mainstream, its reputation has grown more positive and its influence is far-reaching. Look around your nearby area, and you will likely find a weed dispensary within your region.
As popular as cannabis is, some of us aren’t so in love with smoking a joint. Fortunately, there are many other ways to smoke weed at home.
Here are eleven creative ways to smoke weed at home:
1. Roll A Joint
We know, we know. You’re not here to find out about rolling joints. That said, we have to briefly mention it as there are different smoking papers out there. If you had a negative experience smoking a joint based on taste, try looking for flavored papers or try another brand.
Another way to smoke weed at home is to use a pipe. Pipes can be made from almost anything – glass, metal, wood, and clay among other materials. Different pipes produce different-tasting smoke. They’re convenient and easy to carry if you’re intending on taking them out of the house on occasion. To ensure your weed burns evenly, marijuana needs to be finely ground up – something which also needs to be done with many other methods of smoking weed at home.
Yes, you can use an apple to smoke weed! Choose a fresh apple, take a pen and create a tunnel down from the top to the bottom of the apple, removing the core of the fruit on the way. Then, create another tunnel going side to side intersecting in the middle. Line the mould of the apple with aluminum foil, poke holes in the foil, and place your weed on top of the aluminum foil. You’re good to go.
Bongs are an advantageous way to smoke cannabis because it gets you high very quickly. Smoking weed with a bong, you get higher far quicker and to a more intense degree than any joint. Like pipes, bongs can be made from glass, metal, plastic, ceramic, or bamboo among various other materials. There are also some very creative bong designs out here from multi-chamber bongs to percolators, beaker-shaped, and gravity bongs.
A bubbler is small enough to be handled like a pipe but functions as a bong. You get a combination of both experiences – pipe and bong – with a bubbler. Typically glass, they use a round chamber filled with water and the weed goes into its bowl. It’s a straightforward way to smoke weed and gets you high fast just like a bong would.
6. Hookah Pipes
Hookah pipes originate from Europe and Asia, used predominantly to smoke tobacco. To use cannabis in a hookah pipe, you will also need aluminum foil, tongs, water, and shisha if you are interested in mixing it with shisha. Hookah pipes are very much meant for community smokes, however, can be used when you’re on your own. The process of getting marijuana in hookah pipes going can seem complex but after doing it a few times, it will become second-nature.
The trendiest way to smoke weed is easily through a vaporizer. Everything from dry herbs to distillates, waxes, oils, shatter, and bud can be converted into vapor and inhaled. A vaporizer is healthier than smoking because it contains less toxins and carcinogens than cannabis smoke. There’s no safer or more convenient way to enjoy weed at home than a vaporizer.
8. Dab Rigs
Dab rigs use a type of vaporization method to process cannabis extracts a la shatter, honeycomb, and any other kind of concentrate. A blowtorch is used instead of a lighter. The process yields an extremely, extremely potent high. Dab rigs will get you the highest of all the methods to smoke weed at home. Be careful with it, for that reason. Dab rigs are considered a healthier way to smoke weed as the vapours produced are purer than standard cannabis smoke.
9. Corn Husks
Corn husks are used in California and Jamaica as an alternative to rolling papers. All-natural, healthy, and dried, they are easy to roll and will hold the cannabis firmly inside. It smokes slow similar to a paper. At the end of the day, it’s a creative way to make use of something we’d normally just toss in the garbage.
10. Soda Can
Smoking weed from a soda can is basic as heck but for new smokers or those of us just wanting something simple, try it. Bend the can in half. Poke holes into the crease. Poke a second hole in the side. Put weed in the crease, light it, and inhale through the mouthpiece. With this method, there is some risk the ink on the can may release chemicals when heated like this. Try to find alternative methods, if you can. That said, there’s nothing wrong with doing it this way now and again.
11. Hot Knives
One of the oldest known ways of smoking weed or hashish is using the hot knives method. For smoking weed with hot knives, turn on your stove to medium heat and place steel knives over a burner. Once the knives are hot, place a bud on one and squeeze it with the second knife. Now inhale. For centuries, this is how it was done in various parts of the world. They may not be the trendiest way to smoke weed at home but it’s an interesting method to try.
