The Time Me And My Friends Got Together To Smoke a Bong Pipe

Just last weekend I just arrived home from Sharm El Sheik in Egypt, and I have to say I has an absolutely amazing time. We went there for a friends birthday and we were certainly not disappointed. It was a fantastic opportunity for old and new friends to meet up, enjoy the sun, the sea, the locals and also the local traditions! You guessed it, bongs for sale at! Nevertheless let me add that is the company of old friends who are also accustomed to the forms and practice of bong’s and new friends who have never had the opportunity to sat in front of and smoke one before. Egypt is well known for its high quality shisha pipes, and there is certainly an abundance of them, from traditional glass bong pipe styles and let’s not forget most markets sell cheap starter shisha pipe products too!

It was most certainly a learning curve for many of the newbies to say the least. It is no secret that it can often be a daunting experience when sat in front of a bong for the first time. You enter one of the many indoor or outdoor lounges to find a number of groups of men sitting comfortably while smoking a bong like it is no different to the air they breathe. My friends and I were pumped to start with and ready to experience a small taste of the exotic traditional culture and to finally try out what we had been discussing about all day! Nevertheless, I will be honest and say it was somewhat of a different story when we eventually sat down upon all the plush cushions and small table. My friends froze in terror at the sight of this large bong pipe despite the fact that one of the fantastic lounge owners went out of his way to produce three amazing fruity flavours at our request. I am sure this is one of those ‘you had to have been there’ moments, but try and picture the scene, five grown men trying to tell the terrified and horror filled newbie what to do all at once is sadly not the best idea or such a great tactic. So I thought it was best to perhaps put together some short notes and applicable advice for individuals out there who are first-timers. Hopefully you will learn from my storytelling and perhaps provide the same information to a friend of your own who may be wanting to try.

One of the primary and often one of the worst fears that enters many individuals heads is that they will choke. If you ever see an individual coughing or choking when smoking a bong this is often because there is too much coal involved. This can cause the bong smoke to become harsh and unpleasant. In some instances the foil may burn but this can easily be resolved. If you are at a lounge, simply ask for assistance! You will find that bar workers or owners are more than happy and willing to help you before quickly solving the issue at hand. Sometimes many individuals are fearful of what a bong may taste like. Flavour can be subjective but choose the tastes and flavours that you believe you will like. If it is your first time smoking a bong, certainly avoid ordering bizarre flavours or flavours with cryptic names. It can often lead to an awful first time experience. If you are in a lounge or bar, make sure that you tell the staff what flavours you like so that they can produce something that you will actually enjoy.

Illegazling Nature: Why Cannabis Shouldn’t be Made Illegal

It seems like that there is no other plant on this earth that has been surrounded by so much controversy than marijuana. Marijuana is known by many individuals as a natural plant however the government seem to have taken it upon themselves to label it as an illegal substance. Regardless of there being no current or existing evidence of any individual ever dying of a marijuana overdose, it seems that possession of this natural plant is still illegal in many countries and states around the world.

Across the world many individuals still continue to use marijuana, despite some hefty punishments if caught. With many traditional brick & mortar and online stores openly and actively selling favourable and popular products such as cheap plastic bongs, vaporizers, smoking pipes and many other smoking accessories, plus the acrylic water bong for smoking marijuana proving to be incredibly popular along with the plastic bong, it doesn’t seem that anyone is ready to give up marijuana any time soon and there may be good reason for that:

What are the long term benefits of smoking marijuana?

The benefits surrounding long term and continuous smoking of marijuana have been carefully studied for many decades. Individuals who choose to smoke marijuana over a long period of time often report fewer incidents of muscular or pain problems.

There has also been no signs of malignant disturbances found in individuals who choose to smoke along with no signs of neurophysiological or neurological deterioration. This is most certainly a positive outcome for marijuana and a strong case to push forward when tackling the issue of what should and shouldn’t be an illegal substance.

Are there any long term risks of smoking marijuana?

Studies have suggested that the long term risks involved when smoking marijuana are minimal, but studies claim that any damage that may be caused to the central nervous system is completely reversible.

As studies suggested, the risks associated with the long term use of marijuana is incredibly minimal, with smokers proving to be in better health than individuals who do not smoke marijuana. It is certainly important to point out that one long term risk is dependency. Marijuana alone is not addictive, however THC compounds found within the herb are shown to significantly increase pleasure in the brain which subsequently means users are more likely to want to use marijuana for the sensation. Nevertheless, marijuana users are less likely to be dependant on the herb than individuals who choose to smoke tobacco.

Is marijuana safe?

Marijuana is an incredibly safe drug to use, short or long term. Individuals may always argue against the benefits, but with the the overwhelming backing of science that has continuously proven marijuana to be safe is not aiding their argument.

Marijuana is known to contain key ingredients that are able to suppress cancer, inhibit HIV, alleviate a multitude of different paint related ailments, treat glaucoma and also reduce blood pressure. It is also known to be a great neuroprotective, anti-inflammatory and an exceptionally good antioxidant. So we need to ask ourselves, why is this natural plant which is the source of so many great medical benefits, still illegal?

Basic History on the Hookah Pipe

Name and etymology
The hookah is an instrument used for smoking flavored tobacco. As you might already know, the vapor resulted from this is sent into a glass water basin before it’s inhaled. The hookah has become a very popular instrument upon its invention and numerous people from all over the world are using it as the means to relax and enjoy their time. Since its creation, the hookah has become very popular, hence it has a large spread all over the world and, of course, numerous names. The hookah is also known as waterpipe, shisha, qalyan, arghila, narghile and other derivatives, depending on the region where it’s used. The term hookah on its own comes from Arabic.

Hookah history
Based on the writings of Cyril Elgood, it seems that the hookah on its own has been invented by the physicist named Irfan Shaikh as he tried to develop new relaxation methods for his emperor named Akbar I. The origins of the hookah seem to come from Persia, with the poet Ahli Shirazi referring to it as being very popular in the year 1500 in the Persian region.
After achieving a lot of popularity in Persia, Abu’l-Fath Gilani introduced this in India. Despite this, there aren’t any evidences of water pipe usage until 1560. Moreover, there’s no indication what exactly the Persians were smoking with the hookah, since tobacco reached Persia sometime during the XVIIth century. Still, it’s clear the device was invented in Persia, with the Europeans being the one that brought the tobacco in this region. For a very long time, the hookah was a symbol of aristocracy as well as gentry.

At first, the hookah was created with the help of low quality alloys, copper and brass, which made it very easy to more around but not that efficient, not to mention that it was damaged easily as well. In the modern times, we can find hookahs created using aluminum and stainless steel. Moreover, the hookah had to deal with low quality materials in its early days, with wires and leather that weren’t durable. Nowadays, silicone rubber compounds are used in order to increase the durability of the device, as well as eliminate odors and make them healthier, bacteria-free.

Each culture seems to use the hookah in a different manner. The Middle Eastern persons are using it because of their tradition and culture, whereas countries such as India, Pakistan or Bangladesh see it as a sign of wealth. In the US, Canada and Europe, the hookah is an interesting way to consume tobacco which has become increasingly popular in the past few years.

The hookah entered history with the means of relaxing humans, and it has done that for centuries now. Despite material changes, the concept and results are roughly the same. This clearly shows that the need to relax and enjoy our time has increased quite a lot in the recent years and it will surely increase as we move onward into the future!

So, my new glass bong came today!

MG 010_0

Wow, just wow. Today I got my new bong and I am so super stoked. I was going to go with a popular brand name but after reading some negative reviews on a weed forum I decided to go with “Meshuggah”. They whole piece is frosted, I have no idea how they do that but I am kind of interested to find out. It creates a really cool effect and I prefer it to solid coloured glass as I can still see the smoke. I also prefer it from clear glass because the tar build up is much harder to see. So I find that the best of both worlds come from buying a frosted glass.

It hits like a beast thanks to its wide diameter. I am a light user so I only normally take small hits but this bong has me wanting to take major rips. I am going to get a cool video up but I couldn’t wait to tell you guys about it and show you the picture. So that people aren’t too disappointed I found a hd video of someone taking rips.

I am going to create an account and get my own video up soon, as soon as it is up I will show you all my smoking utensil collection! I hope you all had a great holiday and are ready to get back to the working grind, which reminds me of my next post, the venus project! A better way forward with out a doubt. Stay tuned on my blog to hear more about their amazing innovations and ideas for a resource based economy. More next week!
