Posted on

If you want to have the best session with your bong, the trick is to keep it sparkling, shiny, and clean. A clean bong gives the best hit. Keeping it clean is very easy and very affordable. It only takes between 5-10 minutes to maintain even the dirtiest pieces with simple supplies. You only need to do it monthly.

Note that glass bongs have remained the most popular smoking accessories since they are easy to operate and clean. Leaving them dirty for a long time might give you a hard time scraping out the amount of resin that has stuck on it.

The glass bong or water pipe is the commonly used smoking device among people. It uses water to filter and cool smoke. The bong mounts a bowl on top of the downstem. This part helps direct the water via water located at the base, then to the neck, and through your mouthpiece.

To clean the bong, it's advisable to learn how it works. Otherwise, it won't be effortless for you to follow our comprehensive guide to maintain and clean it for smoke purity, optimal performance, visual appeal, and longevity. Let's delve into the cleaning process for smoke-lovers to have a great session: and get to know the apparatus that you will need for a sure quire before you start the process:

Here are some of the materials and ingredients during the cleaning process.

  • Towel or Dry Paper
  • Coarse sea salt
  • Huge zipper storage bags.
  • 99 % isopropyl alcohol and rubbing alcohol
  • Rubber stoppers or even bong plugs

Remove the downstem and bowl.

This is a step that most smoke lovers overlook. It should be the first thing that you are supposed to do. Carefully detach the downstem and bowl from your bong and insert them in separate storage bags. Place the bowl and the downstem in different bags and ensure they are safe enough not to break or get damaged.

In case the two are two pieces, it is advisable to detach them too. However, some glass bongs have more features attached to them. Guess what? You should disassemble them also. Make sure nothing is attached to it before you begin to clean it.

Note that a thorough cleaning will involve shaking and scrubbing; therefore, separating every delicate part of your bong will help protect it from damage. After this, you can now clean them separately.

Note: You may need to put on latex gloves; the resin smell is intense and might be hard for you to get rid of.

Please put them in sealable storage bags containing alcohol.

Let's now focus on this time-honored tried and true cleaning method for most smoking apparatus. Using isopropyl alcohol leaves your glass bong in a great shape. You should use 70 % of the alcohol for light cleaning, but most smoke users will rely on either 91 % or 99 % isopropyl alcohol for heavy and true cleaning.

Pour your preferred amount of alcohol into every separate bag until they are fully submerged. Add a handful of the coarse sea salt. The salt knocks down the loose resin and debris on the side of your glass bong interior.

Keep in mind that alcohol is not safe if you are using an acrylic bong. It renders it useless. Therefore, any attempt to use it will dissolve all the adhesive that holds your bong, making it redundant.

And we are aware that this article is all about how to make glass bongs clean, but just in case you have an acrylic bong, you should keep in mind that you shouldn’t attempt to clean it with alcohol. The alcohol will alternatively dissolve any adhesive that holds the bong together, and it will render it unusable.

The Guide to Salt Cleaning Method

Most bong users swear by the cleaning power of the salt. They say it's a quick-fire cleaning:

Step 1. Pour a few tablespoons of salt into your glass bong through the mouthpiece. Note that the coarser your salt is, the better.

Step 3. Cover the mouthpiece and shaft hole and begin shaking your glass piece. Do that for some minutes.

Step 5. Continue rinsing the glass with warm water and salt until you feel it is thoroughly cleaned. At this point, rinse it until the taste of salt disappears.

How to Clean Glass Bong Step5

Besides alcohol, salt, vinegar, etc., more bong cleaners in the market are used to clean your glass bong. Such as BIG CHIEF and FORMULA 420 bong cleaner, which is the original complete 1-minute cleaner.  Simply shake and rinse!

However, any recommendable chemical cleaner that you use ensures to shake it properly. If combined with salt, they work best. With the chemical solution plus salt in your glass bong, shake it okay for a few minutes, and rinse thoroughly after cleaning.

Shake the solution up!

How to clean glass bong shake the solution up

Cover all the openings of your bong using either your hands or a stopper. The shaking part is fun. Do it as hard and as long as you can. The longer time you take, the better. As you shake, you will realize the resin buildup is starting to dissipate miraculously; however, some resin remains unshaken even after a thorough shake. Don't fret; the next step will be sure to dot the i's and crosses the t's.

Let them soak.

As mentioned earlier, use an adequate amount of cleaning solution that submerges the entire part. The right amount of alcohol and salt is determined by the form factor and size of your glass. For the rule of thumb, fill the glass up with the alcohol to a consistent level with the bong water line. You can also use some cotton balls, a stopper, or a cork to plug any available opening to avoid messing up in the next step.

You can leave the parts to soak to allow the solution to work magic. The longer it soaks, the better results you get. But if you are impatient, ten minutes are appropriate in the solution.

Remember that the longer you allow them to soak, the faster and easier the residue trickles down to simplify cleaning. If the glass bong is intensively dirty, a thirty-minute soak is effective. It softens the resin buildup for easier cleaning.

Pro Tip: adding a dash of vinegar to your solution increases the acidity, making the cleaning solution dissolve more and work faster. It removes even the hard water stains.

Wipe them down.

After soaking and soaking the few pieces of your glass bong, kindly pour out the solution. Before rinsing with clean water, you can now use a rag to wipe out the potent cleaning agent. You get to capitalize on the solution since it's still powerful and can be reused.

You can pick a paper towel and stick your hands inside to wipe any remaining grime for the parts that have bigger openings. The more elongated openings call for a drumstick with a towel draped around it to go in and smudge all the buildups.

For those bongs with smaller openings, especially the smaller pieces such as pipes, you can use a pipe cleaner or any other tools that can get inside the bong and scoop every resin. Just improvise, don't overthink it.

After you are done clearing the grime out of your glass bong, you can pick up other detached pieces of your bong that have soaking. However, a tremendous amount of the grime will only be dissipated after a very long soak. For now, let's use a cotton swab or rag to clean it.

Before we get done with this stem, your bong is supposed to be clean and polished. Otherwise, it is advisable that rinsing will help pretty much before keeping the glass bong back to the shelf in case of some residue smears.

Rinse out the pieces in hot water.

After soaking, get running hot water to wash off the cleaning solution. It helps dislodge some resin buildup before the cleaning process. Ensure the water is boiling and put on gloves to protect your hands.

Rinsing using hot water loosens up the buildups that might be clogged on your bong. Also, the tongs might be helpful to grip the bong parts securely. However, if you use hot water on a cold piece, it might shatter. It's safer to start with some lukewarm water if your piece is cold and gradually raise its temperatures.

If it's a smaller routine cleaning, rinse the glass bong very fast and hop into the next step. Use pipe cleaners or cotton swabs to knock off the large resin.

In case there are chunks of resin or tar that you can reach, you can use the cotton swabs to knock them off. If it resists, you shouldn't worry since you want to remove the bigger ones. You can quickly get rid of the smaller chunks by freezing the glass bong for about 30 minutes. Freezing loosens up the fragments. Make sure the bong is dry before freezing it.

After clearing the resin from the glass bong and other parts:

  • Rinse off using warm water.
  • Shake it lightly or gently to remove any remaining wax.
  • Do not reassemble your bong without rinsing it thoroughly to ensure no smell is left.

        It is advisable to learn how to get rid of resin from the glass bong. If it remains, its taste overpowers the flavors of the sweet terpene in your flavor. A considerable number of smokers understand how to clean and save some resin for the next session. These leftovers can get you better experience, and since herb has become so expensive nowadays, every little experience matters a lot.

        Smoke!

        Of course, I didn't have to add this last step, but the feeling and experience of using a clean bong are too fancy and magnificent not to include it. The reason we clean the bong is to smoke from a freshly cleaned device. It's time to take advantage of making use of your newly neat piece.

        Time to fill your bong chamber with fresh cold water and put some terpenes to have a delightful hit that comes once every few weeks. With a clean bong, you'll not strain to have that specific flavor; it's time to tap your herbs, experience it at your purest.

        What is A Dab Rig and How to Dab?

        Posted on

        Dab rigs take concentrates to the next level. A powerful and exciting method of using concentrates, dabbing, delivers the most mind-blowing effects. It is the purest method of imbibing these delicate, high-quality, and expensive concoctions.

        What is a Dab Rig?

        Swiss Fab Egg Dab Rig

        A dab rig delivers so much in terms of purity and intensity. It's a glass device with a combination of tools and accessories designed to vaporize concentrates. Just like bongs, dab rigs filters vapor through the water at its base. However, dab rigs are small than the bongs, providing less drag, so the smoke moves to the lungs in a quick manner and retains more potency. Dab rigs are not for beginners; they are best in the hands of legends who appreciate the strong, streamlined effects and heavy flavors that the extract and dab rigs provide. There are several components required to use dab rigs and pipes. Herein are the materials that are required to use a dab;

        Rig:

        It's a device that is used for the consumption of concentrates. Most of these rigs are made up of a glass water pipe that vaporizes concentrate. Dab rigs and bongs are considered rigs. The rig connects to a nail or bowl.

        Dab Nail:

        It is an element of heating that is attached to a rig. It's made out of glass, ceramic, quartz, and titanium. Each material has its own unique set of slightly different qualities that help them retain heat for a given period. The longer the retention, the better. There are different types of dab nails whose heating temperatures vary differently.

        Quartz Nail

        It heats up very quickly; however, it has very less heat retention. This allows the dabbers to get to ideal temperatures quicker and enjoy their terpenes' true flavors. It never gives off harmful gasses since it's the type that heats up fast.

        • Electric Nail:

        Enail Kit

        Unlike quartz nail, it's the most expensive nail. E-nail is an element of heating that is powered by an electric current. It has a box controller that drives the electricity flow to a coil, which then heats the nail. For electric nail, you don't have to wait for temperatures to cool off to load concentrate on the nail; it regulates its own heat to desirable good temperatures.

        Dabber(Dab Wand):

        Dabber

        A Dabber(also known as Dab Wand) is a must have dab tool for every dab lover. There are variety of types of dabbers in the market now. Stainless steel, titanium, quartz and glass are the most commonly used materials. Choosing which dabber is usually determined by the concentrates that you intend to use.

        Dab Wax:

        Dab Wax

        This is the concentration that is added to a dab rig for vaporization to take place. It is a dose of concentrate of half-size a grain of rice put in a banger and vaporized for inhaling.

        Dab Container:

        Concentrate Container

        They are nonstick containers made of either silicone or glass and can be used for storage containers for wax. They are accessories used by anyone who is regularly dabbing, and it is already known that waxy buildups can plague incorrect storage space.

        Carb Cap:

        Carb CapIt's like a lid; it covers your dab as it vaporizes. A carb cap traps heat and allows you to have a long time for your dab session before it needs to be heated again. It lets you dab at lower temperatures; high temperatures interfere with the terpene's concentrate flavors, to the extent of burning the extract.

        Quartz Insert:

        Quartz Insert

        They are bucket-shaped containers that are loaded with concentrate and placed inside a banger. They are made to fit in a banger. The insert creates a thick barrier of the quartz between your banger's bottom side, concentrates on the direct heat, and helps with temperature control. With this barrier in place, your concentrates are well vaporized by induction instead of the direct-contact heat. In fact, you can try and skip your 'cool-down' time at once and place the insert inside your banger right after hitting it up a torch and still get a super low-temperature dab.

        Terp Pearls:

        Terp PearlsThey are tiny pearl-like balls that assist you in achieving low-temperature dabs that preserve terpenes. The goal is to achieve lower-temperature dabs; terp pearls are a hit. With terp pearls, dabbers will experience less "puddles" and more flavorful hits. There will be no room for burning high-quality concentrate.

        Torch:

        Butane Torch

        Unlike E-nail that uses electric current, a torch is used to heat a traditional nail to the desired temperatures. The torch heats the nail that vaporizes the concoction for dabbers to inhale and feel a lot of goodness.

        How Does A Dab Rig Work?

        Dabbing offers powerful experience and a flavor-packed experience. Heat is not directly applied to the concentrate. Dab rigs vaporize the concentrates without the need for combustion. By heating its nail for a given period of time, a hot surface glows, turning the concentrate on the nail into vapor. As you inhale, the vapor is drawn from the water chamber to your lungs.

        A Step-by-Step Procedure of Dabbing

        Step 1

        Secure your nail to the dab rig. It is absolutely very crucial. Ensure it is well-positioned and fastened to avoid wobbling before you heat it up.

        Step 2

        After heating the nail fully using a heating element, it is advisable to heat the nail uniformly until you notice a reddish glow on the hot nail. Depending on the nail's thickness and your torch's power, heat your nail for 30 seconds. Some nails have materials that heat quickly while others are slow on heat. If you are using a quartz nail or banger, heat it until it turns red.

        Ensure the nail is not so hot to burn the extract but hot enough to vaporize the concentrate immediately; it lands on the nail. It's a delicate balance, which is why an electric nail can work best since its heat is always under control. It might be expensive but worthwhile.

        Step 3

        Let the nail cool down. The amount of time you need depends on the thickness and material of your nail or banger. However, a general rule is to let your nail cool twice as long as it took to heat it. The nail retains its heat after torching, therefore, be cautious not to burn your skin. Low-temperature dabs have very high flavor but smooth on the lungs.

        They give a good hit to veterans when inhaling. If using an electric nail, you don't have to wait for it to cool down. The current will heat the nail to the precise temperature you tell it to. Your nail's target temperature should be around 300-450 degrees Fahrenheit (149-232 degrees Celsius) to get the most flavor out of your concentrates!

        Step 4

        After the heat is lowered, using a dabber, place as much concentrate as you want on the dab's rig hot nail. When you heat properly, the concentrate evaporates very fast. Place your mouth slowly on the dab rig, and calmly start to inhale the vapor. Don't be quick to inhale. Else you will choke and mess with your throat or even the lungs, be slow on the concentrate.

        In case you cough, the heat on the nail might still be hot; allow it to cool off. Place a carb cap on the banger to vaporize the dab better while inhaling. The cap should be airtight until all the extract has evaporated. It traps all the heat to ensure you get a breathtaking experience. To clear all the vapor out of the rig, lift the cap for air to escape. You start experiencing the impact of the dab within seconds after exhaling.

        Step 5

        Once finished inhaling, ensure to clean your nail. During dabbing, toxins collect on the nail. Therefore, always keep the nail clean to avoid the residue from changing the flavor when having another session of dabbing. First, allow the nail to cool down a bit, then use a cotton dipped in alcohol to wipe the inside of the warm nail and clean away excess residual from the nail. Besides, cleaning the nail makes your dab rig last for a long period of time.

        How to dab without a rig?

        Dab rigs are really fun and efficient; however, they are not the only tools that one can use to consume concentrate. Some ways are more convenient if you do not want to attract a public eye. While others are cost-effective. Whatever the reason, it is worth the effort to learn more than one method of smoking dabs.

        (1) Use a Nectar Collector to Dab

        Nectar Collector

        A nectar collector also called a dab straw, does not waste any wax. Nectar collectors are becoming increasingly more common. A nectar collector is an elementary device that is generally very easy to use and easy to clean. To use a nectar collector, you will need a dab mat and a torch. After you place the extract in a glass, heat the nectar collector's tip with a torch until it's reddish.

        Allow the device to cool off, place your mouth, and then inhale gently from the sector's cool side. There are also electric nectar collectors that make torches completely unnecessary to carry.

        (2) Water Bong or Bubbler

        Water Bong

        A bong is not as complex as a dab rig. It's a simple filtration device with a bowl, carb, stem, base, and tube. First, you put water in the bong. Then load the bowl with a concentrate. Light up the bowl as you inhale gently. The smoke is filtered through the water for a smooth hit.

        (3) Wax Vaporizers

        Wax Vaporizer

        Wax vaporizers come with all that you need to get started, including a cleaning brush. They are specifically designed with the products of wax in mind. The vape pens use the lithium-ion as well as batteries of the lithium-polymer and durable waxy chambers to heat wax products consistent until the production of vapor.

        (4) Dab Pen

        Dab Pen

        Dab pen, also called a wax pen, is a pen-style vaporizer for concentrate called wax. They have rechargeable batteries attached to them; hard-hitting ones use coils while others use ceramic coil-less heating system geared towards vapor. Remove the cap to access the coil and load the dab directly into the heating chambers. However, ensure the device is charged and turned on to hold the fire button down while inhaling. A dab pen is easier to use than a dab rig.

        How to clean a dab rig?

        You will need the following substances to clean and leave the components of your dab rig sparkling clean:

        • 99% isopropyl alcohol (rubbing alcohol)
        • Water
        • Sea salt
        • A sealable plastic bag
        • Cotton swab

        Step 1:

        Torch Your Nail

        When you torch your nail, you get rid of the combustion that can clog your nail. If the carbon burns remain on the nail, the flavor in the concentrate changes as well. Torching will allow the build up of residual to burn off completely to prepare the dab rig for the next round. However, you can still soak a cotton swab in alcohol and clean your nail's surface to get rid of the residues completely.

        Step 2:

        Detach the nail, soak it in alcohol.

        Dabbing repeatedly causes the nail to have buildups. In case you touch, and still, the pin isn't clean enough, soak the nail in a container filled with alcohol then seal it. You can add salt and often shake the bag to remove the residue.

        Step 3 :

        Drain the water from your dab rig.

        It is advisable to change the water in your rig daily. Especially if you use your rig more often, drain the old water in a sink. This helps prevent the residues and ensure the flavor and purity of the vapor is a bit top-notch.

        Step 4:

        Add alcohol to the rig

        The bottom of your rig might have buildups too after heating. Fill it with alcohol. For deeper clean, add some sea salt until it covers the bottom part.

        Step 5:

        Shake your rig.

        You cover all the openings of your rig. You can use your hands or fitting caps then shake your rig well to dissolve the build ups around it.

        Step 6:

        Rinse the rig and nail.

        After shaking and clearing the build-ups from your rig and nail, rinse them well

        Using warm water. Keep shaking the rig as you rinse to wash off the remaining residue as required.

Also, the silicone cap that comes along with the collector ensures that you can use it whenever and wherever without worrying about the heated tip. I am sure you will love this handy gadget, especially when you are out and about.

        How To Use A Nectar Collector?

        The nectar collector has three main components:

        • Neck
        • Body
        • Tip

        The neck is basically the mouthpiece from where you take in the vapors. Between the neck and the tip lies the body, which works as a water chamber. Adding water to the chamber is completely up to you. So, you can use your nectar collector both dry and wet.

        Adding water is a good idea as it filters out the smoke. The tip is the real place where the vaping action happens.

        It is quite easy to assemble all these parts and use a nectar collector easily. I have broken down the process so you can easily follow it up -

        Step 1:

        Use any concentrate of your choice - wax, shatter, rosin, or oil - and take a little amount in the quartz dish. I personally love using oil as it means less wastage and more flavor. Do not dab straight from the jar that comes with the cannabic concentrates. This is because the tip of the nectar collector is too hot. Its contact with the plastic jar can generate toxic fumes that are not good for your throat and lungs. However, if the jars are made from food-grade silicone, it is okay to dab with them as silicone is heat-resistant.

        Step 2:

        You can add water to the chamber of your nectar collector to filter the smoke. It also helps cool down the temperature, making it optimal for when you are smoking. You can also dab without the water. Adding water makes the vapor clean for you so that it does not affect your lungs or burn your throat.

        Step 3:

        Now comes the time for the tip. There are types of tips available. Tips can be made of quartz or titanium and choosing which one to use is up to you. Quartz tips give you a purer taste when dabbing, however, it takes longer to heat up than a titanium tip.

        You need to put together the tip and the mouthpiece and secure them with a set of clips. Securing is quite an essential step as this protects your hands or lap from the hot drops. These clips that are used to secure the two pieces together are designed to withstand extreme heat.

        Step 4:

        Next, you need to heat up your tab to the desired temperature. You can use a butane torch to evenly heat up the tip by moving the flame all around. Do not keep the flame only on one particular part of the tip as this could heat it up to hazardous levels. The high temperature can also lead the glass to break. To know if your nectar collected is heated enough, curl your palm a little and put it at a fist’s distance from the tip. If you can feel the heat radiating from it, then it is ready for dabbing.

        Step 5:

        When your tip is heated enough, place it on the quartz dish that contains your concentrates. The heat of the tip will vaporize the concentrates. Use the mouthpiece to inhale the vapor. If you have added water, it will help cool down the vapor and make it optimal for inhaling.

        If there is no vapor coming, it means that your tip is not hot enough. Remove it from the concentrates and let it cool down. Then, use a tissue to clean the tip and then reheat it.

        Just remember never to heat the tip with the concentrates in it. It chars it and makes it impossible to clean it.

        How To Clean A Nectar Collector

        How to clean silicone or glass nectar collector?

        We have post a blog about "How to Clean a Silicone Nectar Collector". The way to clean the glass nectar collectors is same as silicone. I have laid down the steps that you can follow to clean up your collector:

        Step 1:

        First, disassemble your nectar collector. Doing this will show you exactly how dirty it is.

        Step 2:

        Next, you need to create a cleaning solution. For this, you can use Isopropyl alcohol and salt. Mix them together in bags or containers. You can also add some salt in the hard to reach areas to loosen up the resin and get the best results.

        Step 3:

        You now need to soak your nectar collector in the cleaning solution. If you have time, you can leave it in the solution overnight. However, anywhere between 30 to 60 minutes can do the trick.

        Step 4:

        Once you have let the collector sit in the cleaning solution, the next step is to rinse it in room temperature water. You may need to use Q-tips and pipe cleaners to fight the tough resins.

        Step 5:

        If you need your nectar collector to be completely clean, you may have to use a pipe cleaner or Q-tip. This is the best way to go through the tough areas.

        Step 6:

        Now, rinse off your nectar collector for two minutes. This is the best way to ensure that all alcohol from the solution is rubbed off. Once rinsing is done, you need to completely let your collector dry as water can damage it if you smoke with it in the chamber.

        Step 7:

        Finally, it is time for reassembling all the pieces back together. Make sure everything is clean and dry. You are now ready to use your clean silicone or glass nectar collector.

        How to clean electric nectar collector?

        Just like silicone or glass nectar collectors, cleaning an electric collector is also quite easy. Here are the steps that you can follow:

        Step 1:

        First, remove the tip of your electric nectar collector. Then, blow through the mouthpiece to get all the water out of it.

        Step 2:

        Next, choose a cleaning solution. If unsure about what to use, you can use alcohol. Fill the chamber with it. Let it soak for up to an hour. However, you can leave it overnight if it is too dirty.

        Step 3:

        The tip needs to be soaked up separately in a ziplock bag.

        Step 4:

        When you are done soaking the nectar collector, rinse the pieces with hot water until the water runs clear. Make sure there is no alcohol or cleaning solution left on the collector.

        Step 5:

        Dry it completely before using.

        Conclusion

        If you are into dabbing, a nectar collector is a great thing to include in your collection. It is compact and durable. Also, there are so many variants that you can choose from - whether you want one that is made of glass or an electronic one, each one of them will give you a feeling of bliss and joy. If you want to follow trends and want a gadget that makes dabbing an easy and enjoyable task, you must get a nectar collector for yourself.

        How To Use a Glass Blunt?

        Posted on

        What is a Glass Blunt?

        I love smoking, and as a connoisseur, I keep up with all the latest happenings in this market. The latest trend in the smoking industry is something known as a glass blunt, which is also sometimes commonly called glunt. It is a small device that is typically made of stainless steel, plastic, and rubber. There are more expensive versions that are made of glass. By getting one, you get a compact version of a cross between a pipe and a blunt.

        The glass blunt is an excellent replacement for traditional blunts. While smoking a blunt can be fun, it still means you are smoking tobacco along with your herb because of the tobacco wrapper. Smoking herb like that is one of the unhealthiest ways of smoking.

        However, with the advent of glass blunts, all of that has changed. The glass blunt gives you the correct size and quantity of flower without the tobacco wrapper. It is also quite easy to fill and use a glass blunt. Also, there is no wastage of flower as the glass blunt only burns when it is actually being hit. That is unlike a cigarette that keeps burning in between puffs causing the flower going up in smoke.

        How To Load a Glass Blunt?

        A glass blunt has the following parts:

        • The glass tube
        • The rubber cap
        • The twisting mechanism that helps pack the¬†flower and push out the ashes
        • The smoking mechanism, which is the metal cap at the end with holes to smoke through. It functions both as a filter and a mouthpiece for smoking.¬†

        It is very easy to load and use a glass blunt.

        How To Load Glass Blunt 

        1. First, you have to remove the mouthpiece that sequentially removes the screw as well.
        1. Then fill the glass tube with the ground bud without removing the rubber on the bottom. This is essential so as to prevent the flower from falling out while you are filling it.
        1. Once it is filled up, re-insert the screw and start screwing. Twist the screw counter-clockwise to push the bud up against the rubber cap.
        1. Finally, remove the rubber cap and light up. Slow rotate during smoking to synchronize the glass tube with the combustion point. 

        All there is left to do now is to remove the rubber cap and smoke away. As the end turns to ash, you can simply twist the mouthpiece and the screw will push the ash out from the end. With this wonderful feature, you can add fresh buds to continue smoking.

        Why Do People Opt For a Twist Glass Blunt?

        You are missing out on a lot if you have never used a Twist Glass Blunt. You may still be lightning up cigarettes or using glass bowls, but using a Twist Glass Blunt changes the whole game. I have been using it for quite some time, and so I am well aware about the benefits posed by this handy device. I have sorted out these extraordinary benefits for you below that may convince you to get one today.

        Saves time and efforts

        Rolling flower is a tough, inconvenient, and tiring work, which you would understand if you have ever spent a considerable amount of time rolling out a cigarette. 

        The first step that comes when rolling a cigarette is arranging paper of the correct fit and size. Once you are able to get that, the next step requires you to ensure that the herb is ground just perfectly, without being too powdery. Third, you need to take into consideration the size of the paper and pack with the exact measurements that would fit the paper. And finally, the last step requires you to be extra careful and slowly roll the paper. This step is crucial as carelessness can cause the flower to fall out. You also need to make sure that the paper holds its shape. Rolling out flower really needs a lot of practice and it takes quite a while for you to master this beautiful art.

        But you can now bid goodbye to all those problems by getting yourself a twisty glass blunt. You can easily fill it up and start smoking in no time.

        Does not weigh a lot

        As compared to different ways of smoking, such as a glass bowl, a glass blunt is extremely lightweight. And that’s not all - a glass blunt is also designed specifically to be compact. It can be easily carried around in pockets or smaller spaces. This, again, is quite in contrast to a glass bowl that is bulky and large.

        A glass blunt has a slender and lean design and the glass used to design it is quite light in weight. But do not think that the device is fragile or weak, and so will not break easily. Despite being so airy and light, the glass that is used to make it is quite strong, and so it can resist all forms of wear and tear.

        Does not need a lot of cleaning

        As a smoker, you would probably understand the mess that smoking can make. I, as a matter of fact, hate when I have to spend my best moments cleaning up the mess. The mess caused by ash from smoked flower creates a mess everywhere, which is quite a nightmare. But, with a glass blunt, you no longer need to worry about ash messing up the area.

        The glass blunt supports better combustion, which means that the flower burns better. There is also no opening from where you may lose goodies. Also, the ash created by smoking remains within the twisty glass blunt until you want to sit down and clean it.

        And when it comes to hygiene, you will definitely agree that glass tops when compared to paper.

        Easy to conceal

        This is probably one of the reasons why I and many of you would get attracted to a glass blunt. The glass blunt has a compact design that makes it look quite discrete. A person would simply mistaken a lit glass blunt for a cigarette. 

        This stealth accessory can easily be carried around without gathering a lot of attention. You can also smoke without getting worked up about those around you.

        You will also find that modern glass blunts are designed in such a way that they disguise the smell as well. You can also easily store goodies in modern glass blunts.

        Does not cause any harm

        Before being acquainted to twisty glass blunts, I always used paper to make my cigarettes. It was only later that I found out that this paper contains harmful chemicals that are not considered safe for your health. When we burn the paper, it also releases toxic fumes, which again harms us.

        But twisty glass blunts make use of glass, which is considered to be one of the safest materials that remains unperturbed by heat. It is because of this reason that glass is the first choice when it comes to storing medicines, juices, syrups, and various other materials. 

        A glass blunt, therefore, helps minimize the effects of harmful chemicals contained in the paper used to roll cigarettes. And that’s not all! With this, you also reduce the chances of harming your fingers from heat.

        Adaptable for various purposes

        In all my years of using twisty glass blunts, there is one thing I have realized - they are extremely versatile devices. You can use a twist glass blunt for various purposes, which would otherwise not have been possible with traditional methods.

        With so many functionalities, we may think of a glass blunt as a bulky object with several attachments. However, that is not the case. It is extremely small and compact, but it takes care of all your needs without adding to its size or weight.
