After a long, stressful day, you could use a little relaxation. Sometimes, however, you need a little help. Cannabis can help to calm anxious, racing thoughts, allowing you to chill out and truly enjoy your downtime. One way to reach a deeper state of relaxation is by taking a few hits from the bong.

Why Use a Bong?

There are many reasons to use a bong to relax at the end of the day. One of the biggest benefits is that it provides much smoother hits than a pipe or joint. The water in the apparatus cools the smoke before you breathe it in, so you don’t have to worry about burning your throat and lungs. The water also filters out ash and other harmful compounds.

A bong is easy to use. After filling it with water, you pack the bowl and ignite the ground flower. Finally, you inhale and allow the cannabinoids to help you start relaxing.

Another benefit of bongs is that they come in all sorts of sizes and shapes. Many have intricate designs on them. They’re essentially functional art, giving you something pretty to look at when you’re done taking your hits.

How to Get the Perfect Hit

One of the first things that you need to do to get that perfect hit for relaxation is to find the right strain. There are hundreds of strains on the market, with new ones appearing regularly. If you’re looking to relax, you’ll want to find a strain that helps you achieve that goal. Some of the best strains for relaxation include:

  • Trainwreck
  • Blue Dream
  • Northern Lights
  • Strawberry Cough
  • Purple Haze

Along with the right strain, you also want to make sure that you have the right bong. Bongs come in different shapes, sizes, and materials. Glass is typically the best material to use. You need to choose one that fits you best.

Next, fill your bong with enough water to submerge a good portion of the stem. Pack the ground flower into the bowl. When you’re ready, light it and place your mouth to the stem. Suck in some air, but don’t inhale just yet. Wait until you have the desired amount of smoke in the chamber first. Then inhale and hold it in for as long as you can before exhaling.

Ways to Take Your Relaxation to the Next Level

To help take relaxing with a few hits from your bong to the next level, there are few things that you can do. Make yourself comfortable. Set yourself up on the sofa. Dim the lights and play some relaxing music or turn on a good movie. Practice yoga, meditate, take a bath, or drink a warm cup of tea. Figure out what you enjoy doing to relax and add it to the mix to help you get the most out of your experience.

Taking some hits from your bong at the end of the day allows you to chase away the anxious and stressful thoughts so that you can relax at the end of the day. Whether you’re looking for the right strain to use or you’re on the hunt for new pieces to add to your bong, talk with a budtender at your local dispensary.
