Are you grinding your weed?
You should be!
Trying to break up icky sticky buds with your hands isn’t only a hassle; it’s a big waste. How so? You’ll be wasting your trichomes.
If you didn’t already know, trichomes are the frosty hairs that make your weed more potent, and fragrant. When you break buds up by hand you’ll be getting the tasty trichomes all over your fingers, instead of in your bowl (and body).
Using a grinder is just the start, though. You should also look into using a marijuana bubbler.
How can a handheld bubbler help you have a whole new high? Read on to find out.
1. Happy Lungs and Taste Buds
Are joints and pipes your usual go-to for smoking marijuana? Those types of dry smoking methods can be fun. But they’re not always easy on your lungs.
Bubblers, on the other hand, present a wet smoking opportunity. The smoke will be able to pass over the water to cool down before entering your lungs. The hit will be less harsh, and you’ll be able to enjoy the full flavor of your favorite strain.
For many people, the aroma of smoking is one of their favorite parts. Citrusy strains can uplift your mood with just one whiff! Whereas sour diesel strains are so funky good, you can almost get high smelling them.
2. A Glass Marijuana Bubbler Is Tasteless
Have you ever noticed that there’s a lot of smoking devices made out of glass? There’s a reason for that! Glass bubblers aren’t going to leave behind any type of nasty aftertaste.
Glass is a tasteless material, so it won’t interfere with the flavor of your smoking experience. Wooden and metal pipes don’t offer the same advantage.
Wooden pipes can often create a harsh flavor that dries your mouth out more than usual. Metal pipes are prone to overheat, and they’re infamous for leaving a metallic taste in your mouth. Since you’ll be extra sensitive to flavors and smells when you’re high, a glass bubbler will give you the most enjoyable smoking session.
You won’t be creating any type of fumes that will leave a bad taste in your mouth. Instead, you’ll be able to enjoy every smooth hit, bowl after bowl.
3. You Can Find the Perfect Size
Gigantic bongs can be a ton of fun! But they’re not always practical. A tiny handheld bubbler should do the trick if you need a practical smoking device.
If you want to take your bubbler with you on a trip, it’ll be easy to pack. If you need to store it away from roommates or little eyes, you won’t have trouble finding a spot to stash your handheld bubbler.
You’ll still be able to use a wet method of smoking, but without the hassle of having to store a giant bong. If you’re planning on having a social smoking session, your guests will appreciate what the bubbler offers. They won’t have to worry about handling a giant, awkward bong.
Big bongs can also be too much for new smokers, making bubblers a great alternative. You won’t have to worry about overdoing it, with a hit that makes you cough your brains out.
Do you want to be able to take more comfortable hits, big or small? Then try practicing breathing exercises to increase your lung capacity.
4. Enjoying Different Glass Designs
Many people make the mistake of thinking that small bubblers can’t be as intricate as large bubblers. However, this simply isn’t true.
As long as you find a well-crafted bubbler, it can have as many bells and whistles as a giant bong. You can look for small handheld bubblers with extra percolators, fun art designs, or even novelty items!
You can look for a high end marijuana bubbler, or a cheaper option you won’t have to worry about breaking. We suggest splurging for quality since you’ll probably fall in love with your new piece and want to use it all the time.
We’re particularly fond of glass side carb bubblers. These bubblers are usually 3.5 inches tall and 3 inches wide. It’s normal for the base to be about 1.5 inches, and they usually come with a push bowl and single-hole perk.
Sidecar bubblers look a lot like a standard pipe, but with a little extra. The flared mouthpiece on these water pipes creates a natural splash guard. The splash guard helps you prevent pulling through as you smoke.
Another great option is the hammer bubblers. Using a glass downstem, you’ll be able to diffuse the smoke through water. Hammer bubblers usually have little feet on them, too, so you can stabilize the bubbler when you’re not using it.
5. Carbs Are More Convenient
Are you tired of having to move the bowl in your big bong? Every time you take your hit, you have to pull the bowl out before inhaling. Moving the bowl can become a big hassle when things start to heat up. Not to mention, as you continue smoking, you might become a little bit, less coordinated.
Having to time your hit, with pulling the bowl out, can get tricky as a new smoker. You might wind up dropping the bowl or taking too big of a hit. Bubblers don’t have this problem.
A lot of bubblers are going to use a convenient side carb. You’ll simply cover the hole with your finger as you light the bowl up and take your finger off the carb when you’re ready to inhale.
Carbs give you more control over the size of your hit, and there’s nothing tricky about them. You also won’t have to worry about the carb heating up since you won’t be placing the flame directly on it. Instead, you’ll be putting the flame on the bowl, so the carb can stay nice and cool.
