Is Smoking Weed From a Bong Healthier
So I’m sure there are plenty of health-conscious smokers out there who wanna know, is smoking weed from a bong healthier? In this particular discussion, there tends to always be multiple theories, as neither one can be scientifically proven. Of course, there have been some studies on this topic, but let’s just look at this logically here for a second.
We all know that when it comes to blunts or joints, joints are the healthier option. This is because instead of smoking a tobacco wrap which can leave tar inside your lungs, you’re smoking a clean and natural paper that is a lot better for your lungs. However, that paper is still going somewhere; not to mention the fact that with joints, dry pipes, or blunts, you’re inhaling hot unfiltered smoke, as the flame is going directly on the bud, which sometimes causes burning or irritation in your throat.
With a bong, the smoke is being filtered through the water, thus cooling down the smoke making it less harsh. In fact, water catches unnecessary ashes and weed particles that would go in your lungs to eventually become tar.
Some people argue that the water not only filters out some harmful gases found in marijuana smoke, but also filters out some THC. Let me just say that this: I’ve been smoking for many years, and I have never gotten higher from a joint or a blunt over a bong. So this theory that there’s less THC in bong hits, I disagree with; now as far as whether or not bongs are the healthier smoking method, I’d say it is.
