Smoking cannabis is one of the most common and popular methods of cannabis consumption. Smoking provides the fastest onset of all available methods, where the cannabinoids (i.e. THC, CBD) go from the lungs straight into the bloodstream.
What are the different methods of smoking cannabis?
Bongs are water-filled devices used to smoke cannabis and typically come in all shapes and sizes. They are typically made from glass, ceramic, or acrylic. A bong utilizes water to cool off the often harsh effects of the cannabis smoke before the user inhales. The cooled water allows the smoker to inhale the smoke more deeply into the lungs and reach greater psychoactive effects than with other smoking methods.
Blunts are either rolled using specialised blunt wraps made out of tobacco pulp, or by hollowing out a cigar. The presence of tobacco within many blunt wraps adds the desired stimulation that many smokers like and prefer.
Joints are basically the cannabis version of a tobacco cigarette. Joints are one of the most popular methods of smoking cannabis and are very simple to construct. The only real ingredients or components needed are cannabis flower and rolling paper.
Spliffs are very similar to joints and are made in an almost identical manner. However, the one key ingredient that sets them apart is tobacco. Tobacco is typically layered into the spliff or mixed into the ground-up cannabis.
