Yet, when you first start this journey, you may become overwhelmed when you see all of the different ways there are to smoke cannabis. That’s okay, too, and smoking a bowl is a great first way to try it.
If you don’t know how to smoke a bowl quite yet, we’ve got you covered, so keep reading below!
What Is a Bowl?
In the cannabis industry, there are a few different devices that fall into the bowl category.
The most common is also called glass pipes or glass bowls. With this, there is no water involved. It is simply a pipe that has a small bowl on the end.
Bongs, another type of smoking device, also use a bowl. We’ll discuss that more later.
How to Smoke a Bowl
So, you’ve gone through your smoking guide and have finally purchased a bowl. Now it’s time to use it.
To smoke a bowl, you first need to grind your cannabis. You can do so using a grinder, or you can break apart little bits using your fingers.
Remember, the more ground it is, the better it will smoke.
Now, place the cannabis in the bowl. You don’t want to use too much and overfill it, but you want to put in enough that you can get a few good hits from it.
Bring the mouthpiece up to your mouth, and start inhaling. Make sure your thumb is covering the little hole, known as a carb, on the side.
Using a lighter, light a small corner of the bowl. You don’t want to light it in the center, as this will burn it all at once.
Inhale, and bring your thumb on and off of the carb to allow oxygen in, and once you’re ready to clear the chamber, release your thumb and inhale all of the smoke.
If it’s your first time, make sure to take it slow. And, if you don’t get it right the first time, try again!
Bowls vs. Bongs
Bongs are considered large water pipes, and they are generally much bigger than bowls. They have a mouthpiece and a large chamber that is filled with water.
They also have a stem that is connected to the chamber, in which a small bowl fits.
Bongs are never referred to as bowls since the bowl is only a tiny part of it. If you hear someone referring to smoking a bowl, they most likely mean the type without water.
