my weed isn't burning properly
    #4546551 - 08/17/05 01:58 PM (11 years, 3 months ago)

I'm not sure why, i've never really had this problem before, but when i roll joints with the green i recently got it keeps going out. The weed itself is bushy, not packed, and it's relatively still fresh. Should I dry it out completely? should I break it up into fine small pieces so they burn better? it's just annoying having to relight the same joint over and over again to get a decent couple hits.

you arent breaking it up enough, thats why it stops burning. if you dont have a pipe, you should invest in one...so much easier...

good luck

i usually break it up with my fingers into pretty small pieces, never had a problem before, but I guess every strain of weed is a little different. next time ill break it up really fine, hell it will take a lot longer but i guess there is no other choice. oh, and my glass pipe, i fucking broke it. :frown: I was cleaning out the resin with a mini-screw driver and I tapped the hole and the bottom of the bowl a little too hard and I ended up making the hole like 4 times bigger! so now if I put in weed it will fall right through to the bottom. I think I need to get some kind of a metal mesh or something, cause I really love that pipe, many good times.

some herb is just too sticky to be rolled up....also make sure your not rolling too tight, you need decent air flow. A simple grinder is also a good investment....i use mine daily for mid grade smoke.

get a grinder with a hash catcher in it. Once a month you get a little treat from all the bowls you have smoked.

Buy a grinder, grind it up, and pack it (but not too tightly!). It takes a little practice to get it right.

Edit: spelling :wink:

When I get a bag I always leave the bag sitting open on my weed trey. I find this drys the bud out alot more so its easier to breakup & roll. Some people don't like there weed this dry but I do.

HAPPY FUCKING HOLIDAYS!

Sticky bud is hard for me to break up too, instead of nice little shreds, you end up with compacted balls that never burn evenly.  I'll prolly be investing in a grinder soon to solve this as well :smile:

to fix your pipe you can just buy a metal or glas screen for it.  The metal ones are cheaper and easier to come by but they need replacing every few weeks.  If you dont have a headshop that carries them you can find the in home depot.  They're part of a faucet configuration, ask for airator<sp> screens.  Or you could unnscrew the faucet in your house and see if you sinks have them.  This is how i got by in high school, my parents always wondered why the screens disappeared every few months :wink:

^^ wow thats actually a great idea, but do you buy a bearing small enough to fit THROUGH the hole but not roll around on the inside of the pipe, or do you buy one big enough to cover the hole. Cuz im not seeing how it would work to well if it covered the hole.

a perfect screen (assuming you'r stem isn't much wider than a penny): If you have
I pod headphones, you can tear off the penny-sized metal screen off the earpeice and it's super tight. you could put powder in your bowl and it wouldn't fall through.

maybe your mj is wet. sometimes grower dunk their herb so it weights more. Also, mj that is hard to light is a sign that it wasn't properly cured.

If it burns to fast, it's dried out too much. what you do it but the bag with opening open sitting inside a jar. and on the bottom of the jar put an orange peel, apple slice, or something of that nature. leave it for about an hour or two and it will burn slower so you get more out of each bowl. Make sure the peel/slice never touches the bud or it will cause bud rot and make sure you don't leave it for longer than 7 hours because that will cause bud rot as well.

It might still be wet, not cured pproperly. the stem should SNAP! clean when you try to break it., if it dont let it sit out for a few hours or day.

I dunno if that really holds water.  Most of the power of THC comes from the first one or two hits.  Just because something burns longer doesnt mean you're going to get higher off of it.  Ive had some indoor buds which i could kill in about 2-3 tokes that have gotten me higher then a bowl of outdoor which burned for a few minutes. 

I think it has to do with the fact that you use up all the trichromes in the first hit or so.  So, technically, you're much better off packing up single hits then you are a full bowl.  God, it was explained so much better to me, i should learn to take notes when im stoned and learning about shit :wink:
