A Quick Guide To A Perfect Bowl — Novice Edition
Smoking out of a glass delivers a quality time with weed. It’s an old and proven method to get the most out of the plant, and you will never regret doing it.
While using a bowl for smoking is commonplace, newbie smokers may still have trouble with packing it correctly. It’s not a super hard skill, but it requires some practice. Get ready that sometimes your bowl may be too loose, too tight, or just sloppy. Let’s take a look at the packing process and make sure you get the best experience.
How To Pack A Bowl Of Weed
Packing a bowl is not rocket science, but it certainly makes all the difference when it comes to a smoking experience. Too loose bowl may cause your bud to fly out of the bowl, while too tight bowl can mess with even burning. Here are five steps that will help you to become the best packer in the neighborhood.
1. Choose A Strain
The first step is quite simple if you know what you want. It’s about the type of experience you’re aiming for. Want a daytime high? Pick something sativa-like. Want an evening chill? Grab something indica-like. It’s also smart to choose a desirable consistency of a nug — some of them are stickier, some of them are denser.
2. Break It Up
The second step is to break up the plant. The way you do it is up to you: grind it, break up by hand, or use any grinding method you prefer. Just keep in mind that if you grind your nug too finely, it gets harder to pack. Probably, stick to breaking it up with hands.
3. Bud Time
Instead of dumping the weed into the bowl, pinch the weed and gently put it in the bowl. Thus, you control the amount of the plant you place in the bowl and achieve an optimal level of packing. Dumping the weed leads to spilling a bunch of weed everywhere and overstuffing the bowl, which affects your smoking experience.
4. Pack It Like It’s Hot
To get the most out of your buds to achieve the smoothest hits, you may want to master the packing.
When packing a bowl, put your bigger chunks of bud in first. It will support the smaller buds on top. Disperse your top weed as evenly as possible. When done, pat it down tight but try not to overdo it. The optimal bowl is even and filled to the brim.
5. Turn The Lights On
Now to the smoking! There are some useful tips on how to light the bowl, but try to do it with some serious attention. All you need to do now is to enjoy your bowl and practice more. Whoop, whoop!
