Blunts vs. Bongs - What's Better to Use?
There are various ways to digest legal herbs. You can smoke it from a bong, pipe, blunt, or joint. You can also dab it, eat it, drink it, vape it, and even bathe in it. No matter how you choose to enjoy smoking there will always be some pros and cons. However, in this particular case we are going to focus on smoking legal herbs and tobacco out of a blunt versus smoking it out of a bong.
What is The Difference Between Hitting a Bong vs a Blunt?
Blunts and bongs have been the go to choice for smoking for almost as long as essential herbs has been around. There are so many variations for both of these options so it can be hard to decide which one is best for you and your smoking needs.
Blunts are grounded up flowers rolled into a tobacco leaf. Although you can found natural tobacco leaf in most cigar shops most of us just go to the gas station and pick a pack of whatever is available and gut the tobacco out of the leaf. The most popular blunt wrappers are Swisher’s, Backwoods, White Owl’s, and Dutch Masters. Now there are even food flavored blunts such as chicken and waffles and peanut butter! Some smokers are fully committed to only smoking blunts because they claim it gets you higher and last longer. That’s actually not true, but blunts are still a great choice regardless.
"Bongs are Healthier Than Blunts"
The reason bongs are healthier is because of the water filtration and cooling of the smoke. With blunts, it is hard to filter out the oil and tar that comes from burning the tree and paper. Bongs hold water and the smoke goes through the water which catches a lot of the impurities.
It takes take and practice roll a perfect blunt, but once you have it down it’s becomes kind of therapeutic or fun. Blunts also do fit a lot more flowers than a joint or small pipe, and you don’t have to constantly re-light it. These are good if you’re on the go or want to smoke without having to worry about doing anything else in the meantime. Smoking blunts is also good in a group setting.
The main con to smoking blunts is that even when the tobacco is gutted some of it can still get in your respiratory system, mostly from the leaf. If you do smoke lot of blunts, regardless of it being primarily herbs, it can damage your lungs in the same way cigarettes or hookah does. For those who are more health conscience or have respiratory health issues from previous tobacco use, avoid smoking blunts completely.
Bongs are almost the complete opposite experience, but once again a good choice. It all just depends on your experience and the type of smoke session you want to have. Although you can use a bong in a group setting it’s not recommended because someone could drop it and break it. Bongs come in many different sizes, styles, and materials. There are traditional glass bongs, acrylic bongs, and even a foldable bong. If you don’t know how to smoke from a bong at all, don’t worry there’s a wiki how page that give you step by step instructions. It’s not as scary as it looks.
What Gets You Higher a Blunt or a Bong?
The large pro about smoking from a bong is that they get you really high really fast because you are inhaling a lot more during each hit. So for someone that needs a high dosage this will do the trick. This is also somewhat of a con though. If you have weaker lungs, sensitive to smoke, or a new smoker than this isn’t for you. If you don’t take deep breathes and prepare yourself before taking a really huge bong rip it can make you cough really badly, “burn” your lungs, and sometimes cause you to over smoke aka get uncomfortably smoked out.
