When it comes to cannabis use, there are so many different methods of consumption. Still, one of the most popular methods is a classic- smoking. Nowadays, you have plenty of options when it comes to smoking. Here, we’ll go over some of the different ways to smoke weed.


The joint is the method of smoking that most people imagine when they think of cannabis. You grind up your favorite strain and roll it up in a rolling paper. It’s simple and straightforward. Many enthusiasts enjoy the ritual of grinding and rolling and make it a part of the whole smoking experience.


A blunt is similar to a joint. You grind your preferred train and roll it up to smoke it. The biggest difference is that you use cigar paper instead of regular rolling paper. Cigar papers are larger than regular rolling papers and can therefore hold more cannabis. As such, they tend to be longer and fatter. The main benefit of using cigar paper is that it burns more slowly. The paper also adds tobacco into the mix, giving you a different experience.


A pipe offers a bit of a different experience. Instead of rolling the ground bud into a paper, you pack it into the bowl of a pipe. Pipes come in various shapes, sizes, and materials. The trick is to find one that fits comfortably in your hand and that you enjoy using.



A bong is a type of device you use to smoke cannabis. It’s also often called a water pipe. Bongs come in many different shapes and sizes. Unlike a conventional handheld pipe, you fill the base of the bong with water. The water acts as a filter, removing ash and other toxins before you inhale the smoke. The result is often a much smoother, less irritating hit.


A bubbler is essentially a handheld water pipe, a cross between a standard cannabis pipe and a bong. Like a pipe, it’s portable. Like a bong, it uses water filtration for smoother hits.

Dab Rig

Dabbing has only recently become more mainstream. Unlike other smoking methods, which use cannabis bud, dabbing involves smoking a concentrate using a device called a dab rig. You need only a tiny amount, which you “dab” onto a hot nail. The reason for this is that concentrates are substantially more potent than regular buds, with many reaching THC contents of up to 90%. The heat vaporizes the concentrate, sending it into the base of the device and up through the mouthpiece.

An Unconventional Alternative: An Apple

Are you looking for something a little different? Maybe your pipe broke, or you forgot it at home. Or, maybe you want to try something unique. Try an apple pipe. With this method, you literally smoke cannabis buds through an apple. It’s pretty neat, and the apple adds a nice, sweet flavor to the experience.

There’s no one right way to smoke cannabis. The right method for you is the one you like best. You may decide that you enjoy more than one, or prefer one method for some situations and another for others. Even if you have a preferred method, don’t be afraid to try new ones. You might discover a new favorite.
