For anyone who’s never smoked weed before, the prospect can be a little daunting. There are so many ways to smoke – where do you even start?
Here’s a beginner’s guide to smoking weed that’ll help you get started on the right foot.
Choose Your Weapon
The first step is simple: decide what you’re going to smoke out of. If you don’t have a pipe (you can get it on Tokeplanet – click here to visit official website) or bong handy, don’t worry – a joint will do just fine. Once you’ve got your smoking device of choice, it’s time to move on to step two.
Grind Your Weed
The next step is to grind up your weed. If you’re using a grinder, great – if not, no worries, you can just tear it up with your hands. The goal here is to get your weed as fine as possible – the finer the grind, the better the burn.
Once your weed is ground up, it’s time to move on… to step three!
Step Three: Load Your Pipe or Bong
Now that your weed is ground up, it’s time to load your pipe or bong. If you’re using a pipe, simply hold the bowl in one hand and use the other hand to sprinkle the ground-up weed into the bowl. Once the bowl is full, gently tap it down with your finger so that the weed is packed tight – but not too tight! If you’re using a bong, things are pretty similar: hold the bowl in one hand and use the other hand to sprinkle the ground-up weed into the bowl. The only difference here is that you’ll want to pack the bowl tighter than you would with a pipe – otherwise, all your weed will end up in the bong water when you go to take a hit.
Step Four: Light It Up!
Now for the moment of truth: it’s time to light up and take a hit! Put your lips around the mouthpiece and light the bowl with a lighter. Slowly draw in some air as you inhale – you should see the bowl start to fill up with smoke. Once it’s full, remove the pipe from your mouth and exhale.
Step Five: Inhale Deeply
Now that your pipe or bong is full of smoke, it’s time to take a hit! Draw in as much smoke as you can and hold it in your lungs for 10 seconds before exhaling slowly.
Step Six: Enjoy Your High!
You did it! You took your first hit of weed and lived to tell the tale! Now it’s time to sit back, relax, and enjoy your high.
Congratulations – you did it! You took your first hits of weed and are now officially part of the club. Remember these steps next time you want to enjoy a nice peaceful high by yourself or with some friends.
Weed smokers are some of the most chill people on earth. Enjoy yourselves but don’t forget that moderation is key – there’s nothing worse than an inexperienced smoker who takes one too many hits and ends up feeling anxious or paranoid.
Start slow and work your way up until you find that perfect sweet spot where you’re comfortably high without being overwhelmed.
