How to Use a Bubbler: A Guide for Beginners
A bubbler is a great addition to any personal pipe collection. It may be a bit intimidating if you’ve never used one. But its very simple to use and care for.
In this brief guide, we’ll go through bubbler styles, set up, how to use a bubbler, and proper care. So get comfy and keep reading.
There are a variety of styles available for bubblers. These can be glass, silicon, or plastic. Each material has its benefits and can be made into virtually any shape.
Glass typically gives your marijuana a better taste. But they can be fragile, especially the cheaper ones.
Silicon is great if you plan to travel with it a lot. Silicon is the most durable material mentioned and great if you’re not particularly graceful.
Plastic is the cheapest material available. These can give some resistance to falls, but it is still easily broken.
Setting up Your Bubbler
After you have purchased your new bubbler a little set up is required to start using it. Before anything, it’s a good idea to wash it off. You have no idea how many people handled it before you bought it.
After washing, simply add some water to the chamber. Be sure not to fill it too full or the water will come back into the mouthpiece when you hit it. Then your set up is done.
How to Use a Bubbler
Now the fun part. After the initial setup, you’ll need to break down your marijuana. You can do this with a grinder, or just use your fingers.
After breaking down the marijuana pack it into the bowl of your bubbler. Be sure to not pack it to tightly or you won’t be able to get the airflow needed for a good hit.
Then you light the bowl while pulling on the mouthpiece. If this is your first experience with water pipes go slow.
After filling the bubbler with smoke be sure to uncover the carb if it has one to make inhaling the smoke easier. If you don’t have a carb remove the bowl to help get the airflow to inhale.
Then just repeat the process and you’re done! But don’t forget to take care of your bubbler after using it. That way it lasts longer.
Taking care of your bubbler is much like taking care of a bong.
After you finish smoking make sure you carefully clean out the bowl. Do this by removing the bowl from the bubbler. You can then use Q-tips to remove the ash from the bowl.
Its also recommended dumping the water after each use. This way the water doesn’t get stagnant.
