How To Smoke A Pipe

There are almost no physical differences between a tobacco and a cannabis pipe when it comes to smoking a pipe. Of course, the most obvious difference is the kind of material that each pipe is made from. Many times, cannabis pipes are manufactured from glass, but ones used for tobacco are often made from materials such as clay and wood. However, you can find some crystal > > > > > ceramic, wood, metal, or bamboo pipes designed for smoking cannabis. Just remember that you will not want to use aluminum or foil for smoking a pipe. An aluminum pipe might not be good for your lungs.

About The Bowl Piece And Carb

There are a couple of important pieces that go into creating a cannabis pipe. The bowl is where you will put your cannabis. Near this area, you have a carb, which is a small hole. The goal of the carb is so you can clear the chamber when you use the pipe.

Often, the carb is on one side of your pipe. If you stop inhalation, you do not want to put your finger over the carb. Instead, you should put your finger over the carb when you are taking an inhale. If you have smoked cannabis in the past, you might be aware of the other smoking methods available. These include vaporizers, joints, blunts, pipes, and bongs. If you want to use cannabis via inhalation, then a pipe is one of the easiest ways of getting started, especially if you are not familiar with any other methods.

Pipes are easy to use and do not cost that much money.

How Do You Smoke?

First, load your bowl using ground or broken-up cannabis. If the hole near the bottom of the piece is too large for the herb, you can use the plug, which is also called the nug plug. This piece is a very small bit of cannabis that you place slightly in the hole. Then you can place the cannabis at the top. That will keep it from falling out as you smoke from the pipe.

Now put your pipe on the outside of your mouth. Use your thumb or index finger to cover up the carb. Very carefully and gently run your flame over your cannabis and gently suck some air in through the pipe. However, do not inhale your smoke. That way, the smoke can collect in your pipe.

Once you are ready to take a hit of the smoke, you can take your thumb or finger off the carb to release it. Then you can inhale that smoke into your lungs from the pipe. You do not have to hold the smoke in your lungs since they will almost instantly absorb the cannabinoids. You can then exhale the smoke soon after. You can repeat this process of both holding and then releasing your carb every time you want to inhale the smoke.
