Amid the coronavirus craze, the near future of gathering hot-spots like restaurants, gym. Flower To The People: How Weed Can Help You In The Gym. Pre-workout drinks were all the rage in 2018 because they actually gave you the power to get through your workout. They also often came a high anxiety cost of freaking out mid squat or feeling like you were about to crash and burn after 40 minutes on. Make sure you learn the best techniques to save you in your time of greatest need.
You never know when there might come a time where all you have is your bud and nothing to smoke out of. It’s always handy to know what other options you might find around the house. Let’s first make it clear that the following methods should only be used as last resorts. If you can go out and buy yourself a glass piece, do that. These aren’t materials traditionally used to smoke weed. A proper bong or pipe will always do your bud more justice. The flavour, the burn, and the smoothness will all be better from an object specially made with these factors in mind. Nonetheless, the factors mentioned don’t include “high.” That’s because, technically, you’ll be consuming the same amount of THC if you're using the same quantity of the same marijuana flower.
Even if not the most pleasant, these stoner MacGyver techniques will surely be effective. We had to start with a method that has been, and still is, super popular. Now making a comeback on social media is smoking out of foodstuffs - the same method your grandpa used during his stoner days. The easiest fruit to morph into a pipe is the apple. This sturdy yet soft treat will allow you to carve out a pipe system without much effort. Use an empty pen tube or a small knife to carve out the central stem, but not all the way down. Try not to go over three-quarters of the way through. With this hollowed out, do the same thing but perpendicular to your first carve. You can always change things up to make them more pleasant to smoke. If you have a bowl, place it on the top of the apple. Or, you could use the tip of a pen or any other material (that doesn’t melt or release harmful fumes) as a bowl. You can customise things further by changing the type and quantity of fruit. Essentially, anything will work as long as you can build an airflow system like with the apple. You can even stack vegetables and fruit together to build a larger and tastier bong. You might even be able to add water if you use a pineapple, for example. Or, try doing it with a coconut and use its natural water! For this, you would stick a hollow tube through the side, carve out the top and pull from there. The options are endless, try out some and choose your favourites. Whether you make your pipe from a soda can or piece of fruit, you'll want a pipe screen to use with it. If you smoke your weed without a screen, it could be quite an unpleasant experience. A screen keeps the loose bits in your pipe instead of in your mouth, so you can enjoy hitting your bong much more! So, what pipe screen should you use with your homemade bong? And further, what do you do if there are no screens around? Brass screens are perhaps the most common, featuring in tobacco pipes and many glass and ceramic bongs. You can get them at just about any tobacco store or headshop for little money. These circle-shaped cut-outs are made from brass mesh, with each screen about the size of a small coin. Brass has the advantage that you can bend it easily; this way, you can fit these screens easily into various bowl sizes. If you happen to have brass screens that are a tiny bit too large for your bowl, you can easily cut them to size.
Well, brass screens are not as sturdy as screens made from steel, for example. Although brass screens won’t melt, if you hit your pipe often, they will get weaker over time and break at some point. Steel screens are often used in silicone bongs and acrylic bongs, although the latter can easily be scratched with these screens. They work just like brass screens, and there is no difference in taste. In fact, aside from their colour, the main difference between these two materials is that steel is more durable. Because steel screens are not as malleable as brass, fitting them into odd-shaped bowls can be a little more finicky. Glass pipe screens are normally made from a special, heavy-duty type of glass called borosilicate.
This heat-resistant type of glass won’t crack from changes in temperature, and won’t shatter as easily as regular glassware. Obviously, screens made from glass are not flexible, so you can’t cut them to size. As such, you need to make sure you get the right size for your bowl. As glass doesn’t wear out, these screens can, in principle, last forever; that is, if you don’t break or lose them.
