Regardless of the size, it’s what’s on the outside—tobacco paper or a cigar wrap—that makes a blunt a blunt. The thickness of the cigar wrap makes a blunt burn slower than the ephemeral joint. This cigar wrap also adds material (tobacco) to the smoking experience. The tobacco can provide a unique buzz all its own and can contribute any early euphoria before the cannabis high kicks in. They look like cigarettes most of the time…which don’t even get me started why something so f*cking toxic is legal and yet weed is only legal in 23 states…really gets me fired up…anyway, one hitters are a good way to smoke in-between classes or on your lunch break.
You only get one solid hit and that’s enough to take the edge off when you’re stressing and crunched for time. I will never truly know how the actual f*ck you make a chalice. Who has time to carve out some coconut concoction in the name of getting high? If you’re feeling ambitious, here’s an instructional video. You get a really nice chest burn from this old classic. It’ll see you through the darkest and lightest of times. No matter the mood, it is always a good time to pack a fat bowl and smoke up the sticky icky. Other than the obvious reason to smoke from a wooden pipe (to look like Abraham Lincoln) it’s just f*cking classy. At least, until the hipsters of Brooklyn RUINED it by trying to make it ironic. If you’re using a wooden pipe in the pure mindset of only replicating the badassery of Honest Abe and not in an attempt to be a douche lord who listens to The Smiths and wears flannels, it’s a great option and I encourage you.
Basically, you just attach the gas mask to the top of your bong and BAM, you’re golden. Your face will just be engulfed in the thick clouds of your poor decisions. This is the ideal method for when you’re in a social setting where the group is larger than where you pass an actual joint. The only problem is that a lot of the weed gets burned up with the tobacco, making your high milder while still using the same amount of weed. This method should only be used on special occasions. The best part: Your parents will never know you’re getting rocked when the scent of marijuana is cleverly masked by the jasmine tropical fruit berry flavored tobacco you picked up from Rajen at the bodega. Dabbing makes use of dabs, also known as butane hash oil (BHO), which are an extremely potent extract of the cannabis plant. This solidified hash oil (the dab) is meant to be smoked with a rig, much like a bong bowl, except that, instead of a lighter, you use a blowtorch. Because of the high heat, dabbing is essentially a flash-vaporization method of cannabis delivery. And because the dab is concentrated extract, inhaling the vapors can get you super high in no time flat. Though it might look quite dangerous, dabbing is actually healthier than inhaling smoke from joints or bongs. Because of the high heat to which the BHO is exposed, the resultant vapor is free of any foreign plant material. This makes the vapor much more “pure” than burning your weed with a regular old flame. However, this potent option is certainly not for beginners. You’re going to have to use your imagination on this one (which shouldn’t be too hard if you’ve taken a toke or two). The marijuana steamroller got its name from the monstrous paving machines of old. Follow me on this: Start at the top of the smokestack and work your way down to the main body of the vehicle. Now let your eyes travel right to the butt end of the machine. Close your eyes and visualize that shape in your head. The hot-knives method for smoking weed is probably best reserved for when you’re sober. As you’ll see, it requires a fair bit of coordination, something that is severely lacking when you’re high. First, cut the bottom off a plastic bottle, remove the top, and set it aside for future use. Next, heat two butter knives (the wider the better) on the stove. Better yet, abscond with a blow torch—it’s much faster.
Whatever source you use, heat the knives until they’re red hot. Pick up the topless and bottomless (yeah, baby!) plastic bottle and position it over your knives. Squish a nug of weed between the two hot knives, and inhale the smoke through the bottle. Straight to the dome is probably the easiest way to smoke weed, but it’s by no means the smartest. Let’s say you find yourself without a bong, without rolling papers, without any type of container to hold your ganja. Stick a nug of bud in your left nostril, light the bud on fire, plug your right nostril, and inhale. As we mentioned, this isn’t the smartest way to burn down, but it will do if you have absolutely nothing else from which to smoke.
Honestly, you’d be better off scrounging through the garbage for an old piece of fruit or a pop can.
