I mostly smoke joints..always have seem to get higher but i also use my glass piece alot..
Boner

Over the years I've tried every conceivable way of smoking weed/hash and no matter how good the latest 'fad' is I always return to joints, that saying I really enjoy vaporising and I do enjoy a quality chunk of hash in a glass pipe every now and then.

I figure as long as you're smokinn, that's the important part.

And I think we all know what the seasoning is.

Swimming in a sea of THC.
It's my favorite place to be.
When you get as old as me
then you will be just as strange as me

I like the rhyme..Very well put!!
Redeye

As boner said, it always came back to joints... so now I don't bother trying much else. Theres something constructively rewarding in the making and something far more relaxing in the smoking.

For health reasons i would love to switch to vape but currently the initial outlay is too much. I imagine I will go down that route sooner rather than later tho.
mazdog

Volcano is first for me....closely followed by a quality double (or more) perc bong....and joints are very nice when i have the enough supply around (i only roll big joints).
philly-rich

Bongs hits for me.I do smoke bowls,blunts,joints and vapes but the bong is my favorite.
cattales1960

I said joints but one type you forgot to put on your survey is "one hitter". Thats actually my favorite for quality weed like we get from humbolt county.
cheese

whats the one hitter?

and how do i add more options to the poll?
Redeye

You can add more options by editing your very first post
cheese

either im smokin too much or im just crazy.. but when i goto edit my first post i dont even get any options for polls... i dont even see the word poll anywhere...

Dugout (smoking)
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search
This article is about the smoking apparatus. For other meanings of dugout, see dugout.
A dugout, sometimes called a one-hitter, "chillum", "Hitter Box, Sneak-a-toke , Straight-shooter, Bomber, bat, batty a oney (pronounced one-knee), a pinchey, or a "tote a smoke," pinger (because it makes a "ping" when you open it), is a device used to facilitate discreet personal use of marijuana.

The dugout is a rectangular (or sometimes cylindrical) wooden object with two compartments. The larger compartment stores the marijuana and a cylindrical compartment is used to store the pipe used to smoke the marijuana.

The special pipe which the hitter-box stores is often called a bat, one-hitter, or simply hitter. It closely resembles a cigarette in size and appearance. It may be painted gold/yellow on the stem and white down the length to mimic the coloring of a cigarette. Metal, ceramic, or glass in construction, it has a shallow recess into which the marijuana is loaded. A narrow artery, through which the smoke from the marijuana is channeled, extends from the recess to the opposite end of the pipe.

The dugout has a swiveling or sliding door which caps the two compartments. A spring at the bottom of the cylindrical compartment pushes the end of the pipe out of the box when the door is opened so that it can be extracted from the box. The sharp edge of the recessed end of the pipe allows the pipe to be loaded by burrowing it into the marijuana compartment. The marijuana can then be smoked by lighting it with a flame as one would light a tobacco cigarette. Often the metal of a lighter is held in front of the pipe to reflect the light emitted from the burning marijuana, allowing the user to monitor the burn while inhaling the smoke.

The dugout and bat metaphor alludes to the athletic sport baseball. This is an elaborate metaphor which can be easily explained. The pipe is often called a one-hitter because the recess holds only enough marijuana for one hit, the term used for a single inhalation of marijuana. Baseball bats are used to hit baseballs, and one-hitter pipe is cylindrical in shape like a baseball bat. Additionally, because to load the pipe, it is burrowed, or dug, into the marijuana compartment, this explains the term dugout—the marijuana is dug out of the container. In baseball, the dugout is the box in which the players sit when not on the playing field. In this context, it is the box in which the marijuana sits.

To further the baseball metaphor, the one hitter pipe or bat is also called a pinch hitter, because it loads just a pinch at a time. While the primary use may be for marijuana, a dugout system can also be used for smoking tobacco. It is sometimes marketed under the name "Tobacco Taster".

Because the process of smoking marijuana with such a device so closely resembles the process of smoking a cigarette, it is often applied when the user wishes to smoke marijuana in public. To this end, many one-hitters are even shaped and painted to resemble a cigarette. The ease and speed with which the process is able to be performed makes it an ideal way in which to smoke marijuana while out in public.

chillums are different.
Usually made from clay and held differently.

Chillum
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search
There is also a Chillum, Maryland, a suburb North of Washington, D.C.


Two small glass chillums, with bottle cap for size comparison.A chillum, or chilam, is a pipe used by Indian Sadhu holy men,[1] and by many recreational drug users to smoke cannabis. It is sometimes known as a "bat" or "batty" due to its resemblance to a baseball bat.

[edit] Function
A chillum is a conical pipe usually made out of clay, a cow's horn, or glass. Chillums are used as ritual pipes by Sadhus in India to imbibe charas. They have also recently been used by Rastas in reasoning sessions and grounations.


[edit] Method
The ganja or charas may be mixed with tobacco. When used in the western world, a wet cloth is put over the mouthpiece to filter and provide a good grip. The smoker uses a lighter, therefore he will probably have to look in a mirror to correctly burn the mix inside the chillum. Two traditional methods of using a chillum exist, the Hindu and Rastafari:


[edit] Hindu Ceremony
In the Hindu ceremony, the safi (or saath) cloth is wetted, the stone (gitthuck in hindi) inserted and then the mix is deposited in the chillum until it is full. Then the mouth piece of the chillum is cupped between two hands forming a closed chamber so that the smoker may inhale the smoke without touching the chillum with his lips.

A match is struck by a second party and, before the smoker inhales, various praises to Shiva will be chanted such as "Boom Shankar" or "Boom Bolenath". The smoker must inhale heavily to ignite the chillum adequately which he will then pass always to the person on his right, preferably supporting his right arm with his left (except for Kali chillums which are passed to the left and usually include opium and ganja in the mix).

The required etiquette can become quite complex and the average Westerner has little or no chance of meeting the ritual standards of a sadhu.


[edit] Rastafari Ceremony
In the Rastafari ceremony, the ritual chillum used is made of a cow's horn or wood fitted with a large, conical wooden bowl and with a long tube made of rubber or plastic.


[edit] Types of Chillum
Following the 1980s legislation against charas in India, the ready-made clay chillums fell out of fashion. These had been disposable chillums that were simply thrown back onto the ground from which they were made.

Recently "designer" chillums have come into fashion. Those made by names like Alverman, Rosso, Manu and Daniele are made of ceramic. These are often seen on the goa trance scene.

Joints for me!

Up until 2 months ago I hadn't smoked anything other than my silver palm leaf (and that was only so I could build up a stock of resin/oils) for about 8 years... I went through a phase when I first started smoking of doing buckets, lungs, hot knives, bangers etc but it lasted about a year or two...

I bought a bong very similar to this 2 months ago:



It's not exactly the same, it's a tall one (1.5ft?) but the twist for ice is further up near the top, it's quite good - the pipe goes down into the base and then there's a disc in the base which has small holes that the smoke must pass through, then into main water chamber, then up through the ice... very smooth. Only gets used for grass though, any sort of resin would just make it hell to clean
matty

I was looking at the vote options to vote for spliff - not there - then i thought maybe it's an American poll so was looking for reefer - not there.
Hmm, i guess joint must be what i'm after - don't like the sound of the word myself - dunno why but spliff or reefer or doobie just sounds so much better to me!

I'm a Dam-only smoker so find bongs, vapos etc a bit too strong for me if i want to retain a semblance of my vision and balance. Have tried them though and can see the pull (excuse the pun)

I'm not averse to the odd toke on a hash pipe too if it's got Temple Balls hash inside it.

I used to do a lot of hotknives when I was younger and haah was more plentyful.

I guess it was quicker and easier and I'm essentially a lazy creature.

Got to be a 'Cano, though

I quit smoking tobacco about 1 1/2 years ago now so all I do these days is smoke my pipe

I do still love skinning up a spliff and so I'll sometimes roll them for fun ...  I still smoke spliffs in Amsterdam, I think I'd knock myself out on just pipes lol

Use to be Bongs for years, but after trying a Volcano I was hooked. Brings out the different flavors of weed or hash  without the taste of butane or sulfur.

Death bongs my favorite ... I prefer it to the vaporizer for getting ALL the smoke into you .. and so smooth .. I hardly ever use my vaporizer - Its a good clean hit, don't get me wrong, but it's missing the one hit punch as far as I can see!

BTW - The death bongs my own invention. Its a bucket with a long downpipe, so it incinerates the weed, and then its delived through a 2nd pipe for smoking. The downpipe allows you to pull 4/5's of the 5L bottole out of the water, which gives you 4L of "pull" on the downpipe. Theres an inverted 'V' cut into the bottom of the downpipe, allowing you to regulate how "hard" it pulls. It incinerates 1 standard bong "bowl" packed full of weed into about half a leter of intense smoke, thats been bubbled through 8 inches of water, and is now under pressure as when it's fininshed "pulling" the cone, you plunge the bottle back under water and get ready with the flexible pipe attached to the "mouth piece" ... It's cool. You don't cough. Ever. Not even if you are a gibbing baccy smoking light wieght! And then your eyes go red. Its great ;P

That ain't a vaporiser, it's a soldering iron. I've seen it.

This is a vaporiser

Freinds are good to smoke with, but family is better... The art of smoking passed down from generation to generation.  Makes holidays and visits that much better!!! As far as how to smoke, my preference on how, well been hitting a bong that has also been passed down, but "the valcano" truly brings out the taste. oh, yeah, cant forget the high!!
Twitch

With family is best, which is why I am looking for ward to bringing my daughter to Amsterdam this April.
Usually when I visit she is so busy with the kids that we never get a chance to really sit down and enjoy a smoke, now we'll have a week.
