It may seem like a simple question that has a simple answer, but it has more complexities that make the answer more difficult to give than you might expect. One of the most common reasons why people notice their weed smoking pipe isn’t tasting right is because they have ruined it with tobacco.
To make it clear, on this article we will not talk about pipe vaporizers and how to use them, we will talk specially about regular pipes, how to maintain them and clarify the switching to dry herb usage.
Tobacco damage in your pipe
Tobacco will quickly start to ferment and degrade the bowl of your pipe, and this causes problems for your hit on multiple levels. For one, it means you are contaminating your own weed with chemicals like cyanide or tobacco isopropyl alcohol since these types of substances can often be found in smoke produced by burning tobacco products like cigarettes or cigars.
Tobacco smoke is generally a lot thicker than that which arises from burning marijuana, so the hit on your pipe is likely to be weaker. Tobacco also has a lot more impurities in it than just THC.
These impurities include ammonia, ammonia nitrate, acetone, benzene, butane and propane. These chemicals are some of the worst for smoking weed pipes because they can cause throat irritation as well as irritate your lungs in some cases. Some of these chemicals are detected on marijuana tests and can affect the test results to make them inaccurate because they can interfere with the side effects of testing equipment used in labs.
How to Fix a Burned Weed Pipe
If you’ve ruined a few pipes with tobacco products and have decided to buy some new ones, you might be wondering how you can fix your pipes. Fortunately, fixing these pipes is possible since they are made of metal. It’s easy to sand off burns if you aren’t looking for an aesthetic pipe and want only the most functional performance from your piece.
The next solution is to clean your pipe out really well so that you can start fresh. You’ll need some coarse sandpaper, something like 220 grits would do fine in most cases. Make sure that you use this sandpaper lightly so that you don’t damage the metal beyond repair since there are no warranties on these items.
here’s also a lot of do-it-yourself ways to clean out an old weed pipe, and one of the easiest is to boil it in water. Boil the item for about an hour, and then you can use a wire brush to remove the remnants of tobacco. This will get your pipe back into great shape even if it has been ruined by tobacco overuse.
Another method is a little more difficult because you’ll have to scrape off all the parts of the bowl and mix some grit with soap. You’ll need to scrub down every part of your pipe until every last bit of tobacco has gone from your pipe.
If you follow these methods, you’ll be able to get a clean pipe with minimal damage to it.
How do you make your tobacco pipe last longer?
Tobacco pipes have been in use since tobacco first made its way into the Americas. Pipes have many benefits over smoking joints. They are easier to hide, and they do not contain as much nicotine compared to cigarette smoke, so people can smoke them more frequently since their nicotine tolerance is not compromised by smoking weed through a pipe.
You want your pipes to last as long as possible since they are likely to cost a lot of money compared to other types of marijuana smoking paraphernalia such as grinders or one-hitter boxes.
To make your tobacco pipes last longer, there are a few things you need to do.
1. Clean your pipe after every use
Cleaning is one of the easiest things to do. You can use tap water or a product that will remove resin build-up and smell from the inside of your pipes. Since your pipes are made from metal, you will want to clean them regularly, so they don’t rust. Also, cleaning will help reduce the chances of mold forming in them since mold grows more easily in moist conditions than dry ones.
2. Use long ashtrays
When smoking in a public place, it is always recommended to take a break to give people time to smoke wherever there are no open windows. However, this also means that you will have your ashtray back after you leave your spot. To avoid your ashtray becoming cluttered with the remnants of other smokers, try using a simple metal fork that fits into your pipe stem.
The goal here is to prevent residue buildup while still allowing you to smoke a little bit of weed. Since you are going to be spending an average of ten hours of the day with these pipes, it’s important that you think about what they would look like if they sat out all day long unattended.
3. Buy a pipe case
Another idea for people that don’t want their pipes to get dirty before they smoke is to buy a case to store their pipes. You can usually find these cases in the same section as the other items you need such as bongs, rolling paper and lighters. A leather case will be perfect for holding all your smoking paraphernalia since it will give you easy access to everything you need without having to dig through a bag for your items. These cases are fun additions to any smoker’s collection of marijuana paraphernalia because they are simple yet stylish.
Can I use a Tobacco Pipe as a Weed Pipe?
It’s all up to you to decide what type of marijuana pipe you want to use. In the end, it really isn’t a good idea to start with a tobacco pipe unless you have experience using them in the past and know how they work.
A normal pipe has two main parts: the bowl and the stem. If you are looking for a reusable weed pipe, it is best to start by using a water pipe or chillum if you already have one.
If your medical marijuana card is licensed in California, then all it may take is about two months before you can travel with cannabis products since this state has legal medical marijuana provisions in place.
