Got some questions about: It might be the first peice i buy (still un decided). I can get it for Â£35 roughly 50 dollars I think? Questions: 1. Can i get a better pipe with that money? 2. Will a pipe get me higher than a spliff (tobacco and weed mix joint). 3. How come it is more efficient if smoke gets wasted from the bowl like a joint smokes when you are not toking. Will it save me money in the long run? My joints are really tight atm. But I seem to not be getting completely blazed as I want to, I have a small cheap bong that doesnt really seem to get me high at all. Would appreciate some help. How stuff works claims: Cigarette - Also called a joint, dried marijuana buds are rolled into a cigarette. Approximately 10 percent to 20 percent of the THC is transferred into the body when smoking a joint. Cigar - Some users slice open a cigar, remove the tobacco and refill it with marijuana. The marijuana-filled cigar is often called a blunt. Pipe - You've probably seen people smoke pipes of tobacco, but these pipes are also used to smoke marijuana. About 40 percent to 50 percent of the THC is transferred into the body when using a pipe. Bong - These are water pipes that typically have a long tube rising out of a bowl-shaped base. Water pipes trap the smoke until it's inhaled, raising the amount of THC taken in. Food - Marijuana is sometimes baked into foods, such as brownies, or brewed as tea. Sounds not true to me, need some season tokers insight.
