A bong, or water pipe, is a device used for smoking cannabis. It has a bowl for packing the ground cannabis, a base that holds water, and a vertical chamber used to inhale the smoke. Thanks to the fact that the cannabis smoke is filtered through water before being inhaled, bongs are less harsh on the throat and lungs than regular pipes or joints.
Bongs are a common choice for smoking cannabis, but cleaning them can be tedious. While there are many ways to clean your bong, here is a super easy and effective way to do so: Take your bong apart and place the parts in a plastic bag. Next, pour rubbing alcohol or bong cleaner (which you can find at most smoke shops) into the bag, covering the parts. Add coarse salt (unless using a bong cleaner), seal the bag, and shake well. Let the parts sit for at least 30 minutes before rinsing them with soap and warm water.
More and more cannabis consumers are upgrading from pipes to bongs.
Cannabis science is one of the fastest moving frontiers medicinal sciences in the world. The pharmacology behind it has been accelerated by the realization that we’re all already marinated in cannabis-like molecules (endocannabinoids) and their receptors.
Endocannabinoids help regulate many physiological processes such as your mood, memory, appetite, pain, immune function, metabolism, and bone growth to name a few. Consuming cannabis also modulates this endocannabinoid system in many ways. The effects can be benevolent, although sometimes problematic.
Understanding the science behind cannabis is a key factor in being able to fully enjoy its medicinal value.
People have been using cannabis as medicine for thousands of years. The plant has also been widely used clothing, fuel, food, fiber, and medicine.
Cannabis contains more than 120 different cannabinoid molecules. But, as far as we know, only one gets you high: THC. The plant itself contains a huge amount of cerebral, non-intoxicating THC cousins with emerging medicinal potential. Their abbreviated names are often: CBD, CBG, THC-V, CBC, and CBN to mention a few.
