What is a Water Pipe?

Bert Cannavelli Blog, Recommended Reading November 29, 2016

When it comes to smoking beginners, water pipes are said to be the best starting points. They are easy to use, safe and widely available. However, what is it exactly and how does it work? To help you understand it better, here’s a quick rundown of what you need to know.

A water pipe, also known as a bong, is basically a smoking device, which is typically used for cannabis. Some people often confuse it with a hookah pipe due to certain similarities, but one tell-tale difference is that a water pipe comes with a slide or a carb, you can view examples and familiarize yourself with bongs at www.herbtools.co.uk/bongs.html – They also have shisha pipes for sale over at herbtools!.

Water pipes tend to vary greatly when it comes to the overall design. There are plenty of creative varieties available that put a playful spin on their shape, the colors used, the materials it’s made out of and even the sizes. Most smokers will personalize theirs by adding customizations, such as stickers or painting them with their favorite colors.

How to Use a Water Pipe?

Smoking using a water pipe is quite different from using a hand pipe or simply smoking a joint. The most significant difference will be the fact that water pipes actually cool the smoke before it goes into your lungs. It also provides a much fuller smoke inhale as opposed to the smaller and more frequent inhalations you need to do when smoking a joint or using a pipe.

At first glance, a bong may seem daunting especially if you have picked a particularly intricate design. However, most of them work in the same way.

– Begin by filling the base with water. There will be markers for this so just follow that. Tap water is fine, though some people will use other liquids such as soda or herbal teas. It all depends on personal preference. Water is the recommended medium, however, since it absorbs much less of the THC. Bongs can also provide clean hits so using beverages such as coke will affect the taste of the smoke. Keep that in mind.

– Pack the weed into the bowl and light it up.

– Using the mouth piece, inhale some of the smoke. This will be overwhelming for most first timers as, typically, all the smoke contained in the pipe needs to be inhaled as it would go stale otherwise. Dry hits are also common for beginners. As with most things, it will take some getting used to.

– If the user feels satisfied enough with the smoke he has inhaled, it’s time to clear the smoke. This is referred to as pulling the slide and is done to introduce clean air.

Aside from being easy to use, especially for first timers, smoking using bongs can also provide some level of filtration. This is great for your overall lung health as that removes many of the bad substances in the smoke.

Black Truffle “Bliss”

Anyone who has tried black truffles know how it makes a user feel. Many say its scent is strong, blissful, and sexy. It is indeed a delicacy, given the fact that one kilo of the product costs between $1300 and $4700.

Its effects are not limited to humans either – it has a similar effect on animals, believe it or not. Pigs and dogs are both known for searching the mushrooms out.

Why are they so good?

Italian researchers have unveiled part of the reason for the bliss found in black truffles: they have a molecule that resembles the THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) found in cannabis, or marijuana. The molecule is called anandamide, and, like THC, it has the psychoactive qualities that lead to euphoria and other positive feelings that give black truffles their “bliss.” This is the same molecule that is responsible for causing the release of melanin in humans.

Anandamide increases the user’s mood, appetite, and eases issues such as depression. It also is the reason for the black truffles’ color. It is thought that the plant has evolved to have this color and chemical make-up specifically for animals to seek them out because, once eaten, the spores of the fungus get spread out. Because that’s in its best interest, the plant evolved to attract the interest of animals.

Past and future research

We know why we love Black Truffles, but could there be even more to learn? For researchers, the answer is a definite yes. The next step in truffles research is to discover whether white truffles, burgundy truffles, and Bianchetto truffles also share the same chemical makeup as the black truffles.

Another German study on Black Truffles discovered that the distinct smell and taste of a truffle is actually a result of the soil it grows in. The bacteria from the soil gets stuck in the truffle during their growth, and this causes the unique smell. The smell also comes from the sulphur that is produced by the soil bacteria. The existence of this bacteria also means the shelf life of the truffles is greatly shortened.

The study hopes to be able to predict the truffle’s shelf life based on the presence of this bacteria. If successful, this knowledge could make it easier for more people to enjoy the delicacy.

Weed Trader is For Medical Marijuana Classified Listings Only

Bert Cannavelli Blog December 7, 2013

Medical Marijuana

Firstly I would like to say Happy Holidays and wish everyone a happy and safe Christmas and New Year.

Secondly, a moment needs to be taken to address a couple current issues that have appeared in the last few weeks.

Weed Trader is a Classified Ads Listing site for Medical Marijuana States and the patients, dispensaries, caregivers, cooperatives, and those registered in states, following their state and local regulations.

Mail Order Marijuana (M.O.M) , while not personally against M.O.M, these ads are NOT allowed on WeedTrader.com , as most ship across state lines to states regardless of any medical marijuana regulations.

This decision was made in an attempt to keep all users of the WeedTrader.com website both safe and legal, as well as try to avoid any monetary losses due to the high rate of fly by night M.O.M.’s.

Also, I would like to ask that you take an extra moment to double check your category before posting your ad listings.

There have been a lot of mis-categorized ads the last couple weeks, such as listing dried buds/flowers in the Seeds or Clones/Plant sections.

From here on out, these ads will be deleted in order to keep Weed Trader listings as appropriate as we can to the category they are in.

Don’t forget about the Weed Trader Forums to join in some good conversation, discuss current ad listings and posters, share information about changes in laws, and much, much, more.

Thanks again for supporting Weed Trader and the Medical Marijuana Community.
