9 Tips to Taking Bigger Bongs Rips
If you’re looking for a more intense smoking experience, taking more giant bong rips is an easy way to get there. The key to getting the giant bong hits possibly lies in having the right setup and technique. With that being said, here are nine tips to help you take more giant bong rips.
1. Choose the Right Bong with Large Selection of Bongs
When it comes to taking big rips out of a bong, having the right setup matters. If your current bong isn’t providing enough smoke or feels too uncomfortable while hitting it, shopping around can make all the difference. There’s a large selection of bongs available on the market ranging from simple glass pieces to intricate percolators and recyclers—so don’t be afraid to shop around until you find one that meets your needs and fits your budget.
2. Pack your bowl properly
Having a tightly packed bowl is another essential factor if you want bigger bong hits. Make sure there are no air pockets in your bowl when packing it; this will ensure even burning and maximum efficiency when inhaling, so none of your precious herbs goes to waste! Using a finer grind also helps to pack bowls tighter and increases the surface area for better combustion – so keep that in mind next time you’re grinding up some buds!
3. Use ice cubes
Adding ice cubes to your chamber provides a cooling effect that results in smoother smoke production without sacrificing any of the flavourful terpenes or other elements found in cannabis flowers. You can either place them directly in the tube or use an ice catcher attachment that sits just above the waterline for even cooler hits every time! That said, not everyone likes ice-cold smoke, and some people may prefer milder temperatures instead – it all depends on personal preference, but adding ice cubes will definitely make for bigger bong hits if done correctly!
4. Increase the water level
Increasing the water level helps to cool down hot hits from burning dry herbs and produces more smoke volume, allowing for bigger inhalations on exhalation – just be careful not to overfill your piece as this could lead to spillage or worse, breakage (which nobody wants). Most experts recommend filling about two-thirds of the total height before lighting up; however, this number may vary depending on the size/shape, so experiment until you find what works best for you!
5. Cover the carb hole when inhaling
Covering the carb hole while inhaling helps to create a negative pressure inside the chamber, which pulls additional amounts of smoke through the water line into the lungs upon release (hence why it is sometimes referred to as “shotgunning”). This method requires quick reflexes as the carburetor has a small diameter compared to other parts, making inhalation difficult unless done at the precise moment of exhalation! Knowing how many fingers should cover the hole also varies from person to person due to its size, so practice makes perfect here, too – but chances are that once mastered, it will become second nature after a few tries anyway 🙂
6. Inhale slowly and deeply
Inhaling slowly and deeply is crucial to getting the maximum amount of flavor compounds along with THC/CBD content out of each hit, rather than coughing up most of the potential benefits as would happen if inhaled too quickly (or shallowly). In addition, blowing rings afterward keep dense clouds around longer, allowing extra time to absorb desirable elements present. The smoky atmosphere created by doing this often entices others to join the celebration, which only adds to the enjoyment of group gatherings involving cannabis consumption 😉
7. Don’t hold smoke too long.
Holding onto the smoke for too long can lead to unpleasant side effects such as dizziness/nausea due to the build-up of carbon dioxide in the lungs (not to mention bad etiquette). It’s generally advised to limit the length of inhalations to 10 seconds max, then exhale soon after – any longer increases the likelihood of the aforementioned symptoms manifesting themselves, especially for those who aren’t used to frequent marijuana consumption habits yet still want to partake in recreational use occasions.
8. Clean Your Bong Regularly
Last but certainly not least – keeping your bong clean is always important to maintain optimal performance and avoid any unwanted odors and residue build-up over time between uses (also keeps the piece looking nice!). An easy way to do this is using a mixture of vinegar and baking soda, soaking overnight, followed by rinsing with warm water before smoking again – just remember not to put boiling liquids directly on the glass; otherwise, risk cracking, breaking irreparably damage!
By following these tips, you’ll be able to take huge bong rips with ease! Of course, nothing beats practicing different methods until you find what works best for you personally – so don’t be afraid to experiment a bit and see what happens 😉 Good luck to all, and enjoy responsible, happy smoking!
