How To Smoke Hemp Flowers? Different Ways For Different Perks!
Hemp flowers have become one of the most popular cannabis flowers in recent years. The benefits that they offer are abundant. Smoking hemp is one of the most effective ways to consume CBD.
CBD is cannabidiol of the cannabis plant. Cannabis carries more than 100 cannabidiols, each one carrying its own uniqueness and benefits. Such as THC, CBG, Delta-8, Delta-10, etc. Unlike THC [Tetrahydrocannabidiol], CBD has no psychoactive effects.
CBD helps to relax and unwind the mind and body along with many more health benefits. CBD helps control mood, sleeping habits, hunger, and other body functions when ingested into the bloodstream.
It regulates the functions of the endocannabinoid system of the body. Which is responsible for some of the major body functions such as sleep, hunger, and mood.
Many studies have shown that ingesting CBD from hemp flowers has soothing and calming effects on the body. It can aid in muscle pain and joint pain as well.
In this article, we’ll discuss different ways to take hemp flowers as well as the benefits of each technique.
Smoking hemp flowers through bongs is one of the most common ways of ingesting CBD. A bong will transfer the smoke directly to the lungs and into the bloodstream, creating an instant effect.
It will save you time and energy. The water inside aids in the purification of the smoke, hence passing pure CBD into the body. The filter will cut out the harsh earthy flavor of the flowers, allowing the terpenes and the flavonoids to create a mouth-watering after-taste to the smoke.
Bongs are far more convenient to use than other methods. They filter out all the harmful elements. As a result. They’re highly popular among Hemp users.
What Is A Bong?
A bong is a filtration device commonly used for smoking herbal substances. It is also known as a bubbler, Billy, or Binger. It is made up of three primary components, an open chamber, a container, and water storage. For reference, a bong looks similar to a hookah, but a bit smaller in size and easy to carry.
How Does A Bong Work?
The dried hemp is placed in the container and then torched from the outside which combusts the flowers. The water at the bottom starts to percolate and the smoke rises up through the tube, into the chamber. And as you inhale, it ingests directly into the bloodstream.
Smoking pipes are very popular among tobacco smokers. They impersonate the act of smoking cigarettes, however, they don’t harm the lips as cigarettes do. Since they’re relatively small in size, they’re easy to carry.
Pipes aren’t as effective as bongs, since they lack water filtration. But they’re easy to operate than bongs. Many people prefer pipes over bongs owing to personal choice and ease.
What Is A Pipe?
A pipe is a simple device made specifically to smoke herbs such as Hemp and Tobacco. It comprises a thin hallow stem passing onto a small open chamber where the herb is to be placed. They’re typically made from ceramic, glass, metal, or bamboo. However, tobacco pipes are made from corncob, clay, meerschaum, and briarwood.
How Does A Pipe Work?
To smoke hemp through a pipe, the flower buds must be finely grounded. After that, place the grounds in the open bowl-like chamber at the end of the pipe. Make sure they’re not overloaded. Once everything is in place, ignite the flame and torch the chamber from the outside, wait for 3 seconds, and then take a deep inhale.
Joints, commonly known as spliffs are the most popular way of consuming hemp. They’re inexpensive, convenient, and simple to make. Unlike tobacco cigarettes, joints are made with hemp paper or rice paper. They usually come in their natural, tasteless form. Hemp paper can provide you with a double effect.
However, flavored papers are now available for a more pleasurable experience. Many users feel that smoking a joint gives them a more natural experience.
What Is A Joint?
Joint is a small hand-rolled hemp cigarette. Where the user crushed the dried hemp and then rolls it in a small piece of paper.
How To Smoke A Joint?
It works the same as a regular cigarette. Where the user lights up the open end of the hemp roll and puffs up the smoke and then inhale.
Vaping is a less common alternative than the ones listed above, but it is the most effective way of smoking hemp for instant effects.
When it comes to vaping, many individuals prefer using CBD oil. Smoking a vaporizer allows CBD to directly enter the bloodstream and starts showing effects almost instantaneously.
When hemp is burned in a vaporizer, all of the flavonoids from the buds are released which counteracts the harsh earthy taste of the hemp flowers, leaving a mouth-watering after-taste in the mouth.
What Is A Vape?
A vaper is an electronic vaping device that creates vapes instead of smokes. More commonly known as electronic cigarettes or E-cigarettes. It comprises a power source, atomizer, and cartridge [Tank].
How Does A Vaper Works?
The cartridge or the tank of the vape is filled with liquid hemp. The atomizer then heats the liquid using the power source [typically a battery], which converts into a vape and then inhaled by the user.
A blunt is similar to joints. The biggest difference is in the wraps and sizes. Blunts are usually wrapped in a tobacco-leaf wrap, whereas, joints are wrapped in rice paper.
The tobacco-leaf wrap blends well with various hemp strain flavors. Furthermore, blunts are frequently longer and bigger in size than joints and contain almost twice as much hemp as joints.
However, there is no definitive answer to whether it is preferable to smoke a joint or a blunt. It comes down to personal choices and needs.
What Is A Blunt?
Blunts are hemp wrapped in a tobacco-leaf wrap. They look similar to a cigar and are usually brown in color.
How To Smoke A Blunt?
It’s the same as lighting up a joint or a cigarette, however, you’ll need to carry an ashtray since they’re much bigger than a regular smoke and you don’t want to be spilling ashes all over the place.
Fruit pipes are common among local users. Many individuals build pipes out of fruits and vegetables. Apples are the most popular choice for this method. Smoking through fruit pipes creates extra flavonoids in your smokes.
How To Make A Fruit Pipe?
A pointed tip peeler (a potato peeler will suffice), a skewer, and a coffee spoon are required. To begin, twist off the apple’s stem and poke a hole through the top and the bottom until you create a hollow stem.
Take a bowl, add the CBD oil and cover with a wrap leaving a small opening to insert your fruit pipe. When inserted, torch the bowl from the bottom, wait till the oil smokes, and inhale through the pipe.
Make sure to use an oven-safe bowl when using this method to ensure you don’t break the glass while lighting up the flame.
Experiment with each of these methods to try and find the one that suits you best. However, it’s doubly important that you chug down at least two cups of water before and after the smoking sesh, else you’ll be going around with a dry mouth and chappy lips.
