Are bong hits cleaner than pipe/joint/blunt hits?

    Does the water really filter the smoke that much? And when I use ice in my bong is it any better because the hit is colder? Sorry for the dumb questions.

    it only feels better, and filters out some ash, but it's not really any better for you.

    some study was done that said it's worse because it captures some thc (even if it's not water soluble, some still gets caught by the water) in addition to capturing tars and ash and things, but in a bad ratio so the thc/tar ratio is even worse.

    who knows. it does make for easy hitting!

    Vape is the only way to go(except eating) if you are concerned with the health effects.

    Really, I thought bongs worked better than that for filtration. I guess I learnt something new :)

    I'm vaping now anyway.

    Vaporizer/Edible
    Glass Bong w/water(Do not use ice-bad)
    Glass Bubbler
    Glass Pipe
    Wood, Metal, or other pipe
    Joint
    Blunt
    In that order. I can elaborate on reasons if you'd like.

    Smoking from a regular bowl(chameleon) pipe for instance. Allows U to fully enjoy the actual taste and smoothness of the weed ur smoking I think.While smoking from a water bong kinda just seriuosly sux in my opinion. Never really understood the need for water, the only thing this has done for me is make me more lazy. + REPS for lazy tho. Regular bowls get dirty faster. Who wants to clean thier bowl everyday.Or U could get several bowls.One for everyday of the week and perpetually boil and clean them. I dunno just my thoughts.

    lol that sucks for your friend but kind of funny...

    I can see if the ice was evaporating really quickly. but usually it doesnt..

    To my knowledge & I could be wrong here, but I believe when you smoke with ice the water vapor(even small amounts) that you inhale with the smoke gets trapped in your lungs,turns to liquid & can create problems such as the "walking pneumonia" described above. If you just use water it dosen't do the same damage because you don't inhale enough water vapor to store water in your lungs. If anyone can back me up on this that would be great.

    I also agree with onthedl0008 that a clean glass pipe(no water) is the most efficient way to taste the true flavor of your herb. Not the healthiest, but far from the worst.

    Some people like to put ice in their bongs to smooth out harsh smoke. I've seen it done before, but I know better & I'm 28. Yes you are getting old...lol...half your life is almost over.

    Fresh water bong pulls allows to taste the sweetness..Other wise i think that water kinda crushes taste.Maybe they should invent some type of ash filter for regular glass pipe smokers.

    You could invent it yourself...think of the possibilities!

    Im more of an explorer i think lmao. Not an inventor. But i could actually patent the idea of an ash filter for a glass pipe but then i would lose my anonymity hahha. Fresh water bong pulls are ok i guess.. In my zong i change my water daily. but dont smoke it alot. Doesnt seem natural.

    The only truly natural way to smoke would be to carve your own piece from some wood...lol.
