When it comes to cannabis, the second-most important consideration, after the flower itself, is the consumption method. The consumption method is often an overlooked part of the cannabis experience.
Unfortunately many consumers have limited their cannabis experimentation to only using rolling papers, blunt wraps, and handheld pipes. Although effective, these traditional methods of smoking do not filter out harmful materials that can cause health related concerns. Traditional methods are also not very efficient meaning they waste cannabis smoke.
Experiencing the benefits of cannabis is largely dependent upon the method of consumption, with each method providing a unique experience appropriate for different occasions.
Water pipes are intended to be used with dry flower or herb. They filter and cool smoke through water to prevent inhalation of harmful material such as ash and tar. Many water pipes use percolators to force more of the smoke's surface area to get in contact with the water, which filters and cools the smoke to a temperature more comfortable to inhale. They also utilize ice catchers to further cool down the smoke.
Water pipes increase the amount of smoke produced, which make for massive hits
They provide filtration and cool down the smoke, which results in cleaner and smoother hits
Water pipes are easier on the throat and lungs compared to joints or blunts
They are also more efficient compared to joints or blunts (no smoke is wasted)
Concentrate rigs are a type of water pipe designed specifically for the consumption of concentrates or oils. They use a hot “nail” that is heated up with a torch, after which concentrate or oil can be placed on the hot surface to produce flavorful and potent vapor. Unlike traditional water pipes, a concentrate rig utilizes smaller chambers of water and narrow tubing to ensure vapor is quickly transported to the lungs. They filter and cool vapor through water to prevent inhalation of harmful irritants. Many concentrate rigs use percolators to force more of the vapors surface area to get in contact with the water, which filters and cools the vapor.
Concentrate rigs allow for proper consumption of concentrates or oils
They provide filtration and cool down the vapor, which results in cleaner and smoother hits
Concentrate rigs produce flavorful and potent vapor
They also increase indigestibility, which creates a quick onset of powerful effects
Vaporizers use state-of-the-art technology to extract the active material from flowers or concentrates without burning them. They prevent inhalation of carcinogens and other harmful toxins that are produced via traditional methods of consumption. Vaporizers offer a healthier smoking alternative for health-conscious consumers.
Vaporizers allow for safer consumption of flowers or concentrates (no carcinogens or toxins are produced)
They also reduce unpleasant odors
Vaporizers produce clean and flavorful vapor, that’s easier on the throat and lungs
They increase indigestibility, which creates a quick onset of powerful effects
Vaporizers are also more efficient compared to joints or blunts (no vapor is wasted)
