Being able to load up a small or large amount exactly to your needs and preferences and being able to spark it up and inhale it in one large blast is a practiced skill that comes fairly easily after repeated uses and a few failed attempts marked by coughing fits. Every beginner struggles a little bit to get the method down correctly and to not cough their lungs out afterwards but as with anything practice always makes perfect and with persistence it will not take anyone very long to learn and master.
So how do you use a bong properly and what are some tips and tricks for first timers who want to avoid coughing and hacking their lungs out? The trick to learn how to take a bong hit is essentially repetition and practice which helps to build up both your lung capacity and tolerance.
Using a bong can be fun and easy for anybody so long as they know a little bit about what they are getting into beforehand. For starters let’s look at the basics of how a bong actually works. These cool devices come in all shapes and sizes and there is seemingly no limit to the variations available but all of them have a few basic principles in common.
Bongs typically feature a bowl for packing your dried weed and setting it alight which can be customized to user preference to be as large or small as desired. The bowl typically is a separate piece that slides into a downstem which is typically made of glass and holds the bowl while descending into the water. The water is contained in the bulbous and typically round shape at the base of the bong and should be only as full as is needed to completely submerge all the openings at the end of your downstem.
The last remaining portion of most typical bongs is the mouthpiece which can be either tall long and fat or short and stubby depending on the design. A user lights the dried cannabis material in the bowl while inhaling deeply on the mouthpiece. When the bong fills up with smoke – and you will know it is working by the unmistakable trademark bubbling sound familiar to most everyone who has ever seen one in action – you typically pull the bowl out of the downstem to allow all of the smoke to rush up out of the mouthpiece and into your lungs – some bongs may vary on this last part but typically not.
When done properly you will recieve a massive inrush of smoke into the lungs in a very short period of time. There is no need to force yourself to hold it in or try to hold it in any longer than you naturally can. All of the good stuff gets absorbed into your bloodstream almost instantly so allow yourself a deep and satisfying exhale and watch the smoke billow from your lungs to fill the room!
This is a fun experience that every marijuana smoker should enjoy especially when it comes to smoking high quality craft cannabis such as the kinds available from your friends at Haute Health!
