How To Corner Your Bowl For The First Time
Good weed costs money, and it is smart to stretch your stash as long as possible. We know the pain of doing it and suggest an essential technique that can help conserve your gold pot during a solo or group smoke sesh.
Cornering is when the user lights a lighter away from the bowl and brings it to the bowl’s side. To corner a bowl may seem like a hard task for a beginner but there is no hassle in it. Here’s what you do:
- Bring the lighter to the bowl’s side.
- Ease the flame over the lip of the bowl.
- Slice a corner of the full circular bowl (attention — it is the hardest part. Just make sure you have a suitable lighter).
Summary: instead of lightning over the bowl and dispensing flint into cannabis, light it to the side. It will preserve the flavor and keep external chemicals to a minimum. Just like that:
The main rule is not to lay flame directly on the fresh bud. Dip the fire carefully over the side of the bowl. When you have some experience, try to burn a dot at the edge of the bowl to minimise the amount of weed touched by the flame. That small dot should stay lit without the need to bring a lighter again. (By the way, it is called a “cherry” — when the embers of the bowl of cannabis stay lit and can be reheated by a drag off the pipe. When you do that, the dot glows red like a cherry 🙂 )
This essential technique works with the most flower bowl pieces. If you bowl is too small, you may want to skip the routine and just enjoy a good quality rip. However, if you just want to preserve your cannabis as long as possible, it is a good way to stretch the bud a little further.
