Smoking Bong Help

Discussion in 'Apprentice Marijuana Consumption' started by asdfgasdfgasdfg, Dec 1, 2011.

  1. Sup grasscity,

    Im really new to these forums but it seems like the perfect place to ask for the help i need. So im a new toker, few months on and off and one thing that confuses me is the use of a 'shotty' or 'carb' or 'shotgun' on the bong, basically just the whole that is covered with the thumb until the end of the hit. I dont smoke out of glass bongs as i do not have one, however me and my friends usually just make a powerade bong with a large cone piece.

    My question is, when do i release the shotty and what is its purpose? I was under the understanding that whenever you were finished your hit you would release the shotty and suck hard, however many of my friends will do half the cone then cover the top of the bong then finish the cone and release the shotty, whereas i release the shotty and suck through then start again.

    So basically which method is better or have i got it all wrong? Thanks in advance!
  2. You pack your bowl burn it all through then release your finger from the carb and all the smoke shoots into your lungs(Well its delicate with a massive hit you may release earlier to force it all in as mentioned below). I believe your friends MAY be also right but personally I disagree the smoke goes stale if you do not one hit it. But people corner so who knows.

    I would not let someone do that with my weed.
  3. When I used to do bongs I'd do half lung full of bong then use the shotty to breat it all in
