The bright sun shining down illuminating the trees, the birds singing beautiful songs all around you; everything seems so saturated and bright! Whether you’re a seasoned cannabis smoker or just getting started, smoking in nature is always an amazing experience. You may be wondering how to keep your smoke session cool this summer so you can enjoy all the wonders of a smoke sesh in nature without worrying about the summer heat. We’re here to provide you with the top five, let’s get started!
Using a Percolator Water Pipe
Instead of smoking a joint in the heat and having the smoke make your lungs burn; a Percolator Water Pipe has an additional chamber for cooling down the smoke in two ways.
First the smoke comes into contact with water, which initially cools it down. Additionally, the pressure in the percolator breaks down the smoke into tiny bubbles. This cools the smoke even more since it’s in touch with water again, this time over a broader surface.
A percolator bong takes your smoking experience to the next level by condensing the smoke, this enables you to inhale a bigger hit while causing less discomfort to your lungs and throat.
If we’re being honest, the cannabis industry has come a long way. From sloppy-rolled joints to fancy marijuana edibles; there’s something fit for everyone’s tastes. A great way to stay cool during your smoke session is having a nice cold drink. Introducing cannabis-infused drinks! There’s an array of options to choose, from cannabis-infused teas to cannabis-infused lemonade.
Using a Gravity Bong
Whether you’re a novice or a seasoned marijuana smoker, sometimes hearing “gravity bong” can sound confusing and a little intimidating. We’re here to assure you that using a gravity bong is the way to go! Essentially, the physics of the gravity bong are quite simple, it utilizes water and gravity by submerging one bottle with a bowl of weed on top into another larger bottle of water, which then fills the chamber with smoke while you light the bowl. After unscrewing the lid, the smoker pushes the bottle down which then pushes the smoke straight into the lungs.
Alternatively, there are more sophisticated forms of gravity bongs, like the one from 3Pursuits. It uses the negative pressure created by the water falling from one chamber into the other to pull air through the bowl piece; which in turn replaces the empty space with smoke as the water vacates it. Then once turned back over, the pressure from the water falling back into the previously smoke filled chamber pushes the smoke back out and into your lungs!
Adding Frozen Fruit to Bong Water
While it’s not recommended to add ice/frozen fruit to your bong water often, on those really humid summer days sometimes it’s nice to add a little treat to your hit. Any fruit you find in your kitchen can be frozen and added to bong water to cool down your hit. Not only will it provide plenty of flavor to every hit you take, but utilizing frozen fruit in your bong may have additional benefits to keeping the glass clean. This trick works particularly well with fruity cannabis strains!
Making Pipes out of Fruits
If you don’t want to wait for the fruit to freeze for your bong water, you can turn the fruit into a pipe of it’s own instead! Not only will the fruit juice cool down your hit and make it taste amazing, but right after you’re done smoking you can eat it afterwards.
Let’s say you want to start with something basic, such as an apple. Firstly find a decent sized apple and use a pen to create a funnel around the top—don’t go all the way through, or the cannabis will drop when you pack—then use the pen to make a hole in the side that joins the first hole. Simple as that! Once you become a pro, there’s a ton of different fruits to test your pipe making abilities with.
