  • What is THC?

  • What are popular products to smoke with?

  • What is a Surgeon General Warning?

  • What happens when you smoke tobacco?

  • What substance in vapes are bad?

  • Papers vs. Blunts


What is THC? Best Way to Smoke THC?

Tetrahydrocannabinol or THC is 1 of about 113 cannabinoids found in Cannabis sativa. Cannabinoids are a group of substances found in Cannabis sativa; the main ones are THC and cannabidiol (CBD). Marijuana, like many other vices, can become an integral part of one’s life. However, individuals should always take safety measures and try to consume the healthiest products available. In recent years, what individuals use to smoke with has become a trending topic. For instance, look at the following popular options:

  • papers

  • leaves

  • blunts

  • glass

  • vapes


What is a Surgeon General Warning?

What enters your body affects the quality of life an individual has now and in the future. For instance, on the labeling of tobacco-based products-- there is a warning label. This warning label is called a Surgeon General Warning.


What Happens When You Smoke Tobacco?

In 1981, the Federal Trade Commission concluded that health warning labels did little to deter the public about the effects of smoking and reported this to Congress. As a result of these findings, Congress passed the Comprehensive Smoking Education Act of 1984 (Public Law 98–474) which required the 4 warning labels that you see on packages today. In the 2004 Surgeon General’s Report, the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services concluded a causal relationship between tobacco use and cancer. This means that if you smoke tobacco and you get cancer-- the cancer came from the tobacco. Even if you don’t get cancer (knock on wood), smoking tobacco fills your lungs with tar, carcinogens, and more which can lead to lung problems.


Is Vaping Bad? What is in Vape Pens?

Why smoke a substance that damages the body when you do not have to? The answer is convenience and habits. Even vaping poses a threat to your health. Most THC cartridges come with a chemical additive called vitamin e acetate which is used as a condenser. Subsequently, according to the CDC, injured lung fluids have this same underlying agent.

Marijuana is classified as a Schedule I Drug (highest), which of these is Schedule II? (answer at end of article)

  • Methamphetamine

  • Cocaine

  • Fentanyl

  • All of the above


Tobacco Products are Bad

Tobacco products are harmful to anyone who uses them. Those who still choose to partake, should do so with caution and reduce use as much as possible. Tobacco is not your friend.


Papers vs. Blunts

My favorite option to use is paper. Papers are cleaner, use fewer additives, and are usually made with hemp. Not all paper options are made equal. My favorite brand of papers is “Raw”. Raw papers do not use harmful additives and are super cheap. To acquire papers, I usually go on Amazon and get a pack of 300 papers for 5-7 dollars. Compare this to harmful products like blunts. Blunts are roughly (1-2 dollars) for one pack and leaves (mainly backwoods) are 5-7 dollars for one pack.


Cost of Papers vs. Blunts

In terms of convenience, I now do not need multiple store- runs vs. spending 5-7 dollars every couple of days. Good sense should become common sense. Glass products, such as bongs and bowls, are even safer. There is no substance being inhaled besides marijuana.


For those that can’t roll papers, I don’t roll them either. A cigarette roller does the lifting for me. It costs roughly five dollars and can be used forever-- if it remains in working condition. Also, to enhance the smoking experience, try using filters. Filters add a more intense hit. All in all, the decision lies upon the person. Smoke better products and continue to Make The Healthy Choice.
