MaximumYield explains Toke
Other than smoking, it is possible to ingest cannabis by applying it to the skin or by placing it on the tongue and letting it melt. Toking, or smoking, remains the most popular method of recreationally-ingesting cannabis.
Some of the more popular smoking methods include:
- Bong: Similar to pipes, bongs are fitted with a water chamber. Some users may add ice to lower the smoke temperature and reduce any discomfort caused by the smoke. The main types of bongs are gravity and waterfall.
- Blubber: This apparatus looks like a bong, but is fitted with a stem, a water chamber, and a carburetor. Unlike a bong, users do not have to pull up the stem while smoking.
- Pipe: Also known as bowls, these pipes can be crafted from bamboo, wood, stone, ceramic, metal, or borosilicate glass.
- Blunt: Blunts refer to hand-rolled joints for toking. These are crafted using rolling papers made from flax, soy, hemp, or rice.
