Pipe Smoking: Is it a waste?
    #4687492 - 09/20/05 09:21 PM (12 years, 2 months ago)

Earlier today I was reading that when your bud gets too hot, a good portion of the thc is destroyed. One of my most frequently used pipes is a small smokeless pipe (the type thats often called a "bullet"). By using this small pipe with a cheap lighter, am I wasting bud and inhaling chemicals from the lighter?

If so, what do you recommend for alternatives? I've been rolling a lot more lately since I realized that my pipe may be doing more harm than good.

What are you talking about? Joints waste a fuckload more weed than pipes do. Joints probably are one of the most wasteful methods.

Pipes are probably one of the most efficient methods. If you want to be really efficient then cut off the air supply to the pipe if it's still smoking or cherried after taking a hit.

Obviously if you see smoke billowing out of the devise it's wasting THC.

I could smoke a joint with a gram and get high. Or I could smoke probably .1 or .2 grams in a pipe and be just as high... if not higher.

A tightly rolled joint has a much more controlled burn than an open flame on a bowl in my experience. What I'm actually mostly concerned about though is the possibility of inhaling chemicals from the lighter by using such a small pipe.



edit: added picture of similar pipes

its only a waste if you crack out your lighter to give it a big ass flame.

i have to agree with heavy on this one.. i would pack a bowl any day before i roll a joint.. i know many people disagree.. i seem to get higher off bowls to the dome than a joint.. plus it uses less bud

ok, a joint is constantly burning. a pipe burns when u hit it, then stops. how does the joint not waste bud?

and i wouldnt worry about inhaling w/e it is u might be from the lighter. You are inhaling tar and smoke into ur lungs from the bud as it is.

use your pipe and dont worry so much.

i don't think it really makes that big of a difference. I just use what ever i feel like. Who cares if you waste a little bit of bud; to me it is all about the experience and if smoking a joint/bowl sounds more fun then i do it.

I agree that smoking from a pipe is more efficient.  However, if you are a good joint roller, you can dramatically cut back on wasting weed in joints.  You have to know how to roll it just right, you can get the joint to basically not burn while your not hitting it, then start it back up again with a big puff. 

I don't like bongs and bubblers as much because after like 3 big hits, the bowl quickly turns to ash.

I smoke out of my waterless pipe or a joint more than anything.It's all about what I'm in the mood for.  If I'm sitting out at night with a nice view under the stars.. nothing beats a nice smooth doobie.
It's all about what I'm in the mood for and it's usually a joint! :bigblunt:

my favorite is a blong. Roll a blunt so it fits into your bong w/out the slide and cheef down on that bad boy. It will milk up faster than a dairy cow.

actually, that concept of putting a blunt into a bong sounds worth trying. If even just out of curiosity... since the blunt would keep everything nice and compact... and would smolder lightly, burning up less material than an applied butane flame.

For a different kind of smoke with a bong, I might recommend that you try using small candles.. not that it is likely to change much of the yield, but it's much easier than trying to fumble with a Bic while faded... seeing as it stays lit and you just hold it... but I think it may burn a little cooler too.

I used a candle, in absence of a lighter, to light a bowl once when I was like 15. The wax ended up melting into the bowl without me even realizing, and I think I smoked some of it. I was a stupid kid

just toke it for crying out loud

it is true that heat destroys thc
that is why vaporizers are good. they get just hot enough to burn the thc without getting hot enough to burn the bud. ANY TIME YOU BURN THE BUD YOU ARE WASTING THC.

BUT with that said
who gives a shit. burning bud get's enough thc in your system.
the trick to pot is: quit worrying about it and get stoned

Make a gravity bong. Take a hit, and ghost it, meaning hold it in until nothing more than a wisp of smoke comes out on the exhale.

No waste whatsoever, plus the sheer size of the hit will give you a way better initial rush than taking 5 or 6 hits over 5 or 6 minutes.

If you use a gravity bong right, its undetectable smell-wise.

HAHHA, wait till you cough! The whole point of gravity bongs for me, is the fact that you get all that smoke at once, and the best part is when you see your friends faces after they take a hit. I love joints, and yes you burn a lot of weed, but depending how you roll, how you broke the weed, what kind is it, many factors.
