Using the duo of cannabis and glass, you can get incredible results irrespective of whether you use it to get high or for the health benefits. Weedy will introduce you to the most popular glass accessories you can use to consume your medical marijuana.
There is plenty of glassware on the medical cannabis market, but the following five types are the most popular and prevalent:
Further, we will tell you more about each one of these types. But first, let us talk about the main reasons why you should use glass accessories if you want your cannabis to give you all those health benefits you need.
Glass is believed to be free from added chemicals and carcinogens, so the accessories made of it are probably the cleanest and safest tools to smoke your medical weed. And even if there is some soot, mold or mildew, you can easily clean it up. Moreover, these accessories can withstand high temperatures, so you can use it even for concentrate rigs and dabs.
One the other hand, these accessories have some downsides, the most significant negative side being their fragility. You have to be very careful when you use glass tools to smoke your cannabis because it is usually enough to drop it only once to break it into pieces.
Depending on your goals, you can choose one of the five most popular glass accessories for medical cannabis. One-hitters, also known as bats, are small devices that were created to let you smoke one hit of weed at a time. All you need to do is to load it with cannabis on one end, and place you lips to the other. Inhale the smoke like you would do it with a regular cigarette and enjoy your cannabis therapy.
Handpipes are a bit bigger than one-hitters, usually ranging from 3 to 6 inches. They have a carb intake and a bowl, and work pretty similar to the regular tobacco pipes. Fill the bowl with cannabis, light it, and start smoking.
Bubblers or water pipes, on the other hand, use a bit different technique. When you smoke cannabis with a bubbler, the water inside of it cools the smoke of marijuana and filters it, so you can enjoy your weed medication for a longer period of time. The only negative side of this tool is that you cannot take it with you everywhere you go, in contrast to way more portable bats and handpipes.
Bongs, just like bubblers, are a version of water pipes. The major difference between the two types of the glass accessories is their size. Bongs are bigger and allow you to intake more medical cannabis than their smaller analogs. But if you are only starting your medical cannabis therapy, you better use a bong carefully.
If you are going to use medical marijuana concentrates instead of buds, you will need a dab rig. Dab rigs usually look just like a mini-version of a regular bong, but they work differently. There is a little metallic “nail” inside the bowl that you need to heat before placing a piece of marijuana concentrate on top of it. To prevent you from any traumas, use a dabber to put your marijuana concentrate inside the bowl. Just like with the regular bongs, this type of medical marijuana glass accessories is perfect for the experienced patients with a high tolerance.
