Break out the devices and contraptions, clean out the bongs and bowls because it’s time to get high.

If you’re new to getting high, you might not be aware that there are other ways to smoke weed beside the apple core bowl you saw people hitting when you were fifteen.

Put on your thinking cap and get ready for exploration. Here are the top 10 best ways to smoke weed for beginners.

The Best Ways To Smoke Weed

To each their own, but when it comes to smoking weed, there are pros and cons to each method. It’s up to you to discover what works best for you. This guide is in no particular order since it’s so subjective, but these are the most effective, comfortable methods to smoke weed.

A Vaporizer

Vaporizers are healthy because you’re not lathering your lungs in tar. With no smoke, you get a cleaner, which is perfect for beginners. They also eliminate the odor, so you don’t walk around paranoid about every passerby giving you the stink eye.

Since vaporizing reduces the temperature in which cannabinoids change from a solid to liquid or gas, it preserves the active ingredients that lighting weed destroys. If you want a clean, healthy high, vaping is the best decision.

The only drawback is that vapes are expensive. Over the past few years, prices have dropped, but if you want a reliable pen, you’ll have to invest. If you like to smoke, and you don’t like how weed smoke makes you feel, it’s well worth it.

A Bong

Bongs are the quintessential get-home-from-work smoking device. If you’ve had a long day, the thought of your bong waiting for you (when no one else is) soothes the soul. Bongs can be very fancy, as well. They can provide intense highs but still hit clean somehow.

If you want to be fancy, you can drop a few ice cubes in your bong to make it nice and smooth. If you’re looking to get ripped pronto, the bong is your best go-to, especially if you have time to kill. Nothing says Friday night video game sesh like your pal ole blue bong waiting for you in the living room corner.

The best bongs are made out of glass. And have percolators.

An Apple

Smoking out of an apple is the OG way. If you’ve never burned, it’s almost a rite of passage. If you’re thirty, I’m not sure how you can re-create those nights behind your friend’s shed, dodging parents.

If you’ve ever smoked out of an apple, however, you know how nostalgic it can feel to relive those experiences. Smoking out of an apple isn’t the most glamorous method, but there’s a purity to it that’s hard to match.


Joints bring people together. Some of the best experiences involve people from different backgrounds coming together for a joint. If you’re at a live show, it’s not like you can bring a bong or a volcano into the venue. But a couple rolled joints in a cigarette case? Yeah, you’re golden.

There’s something old fashioned about taking on a doobie that makes you feel like you understand what getting high is all about. Sometimes on a clear night, if you listen carefully, you can hear Jerry Garcia’s sweet melodies serenading you in between the “puff puff passes.”

If that’s not convincing enough, their portability is tough to match, you can dispose of them after you’re done, and they’re an easy way to make a lot of friends.

A Bucket Gravity Bong

Gravity bongs send you to next week for cheap. The second you dip the bottle, prepare for blast off. Grab a 2-liter bottle and a bucket. Cut the 2-liter bottle and use the top half as a hitting device.

Turn the cap into a bowl by cutting a hole in it, and attaching a contraption. Then, fill the bucket with water. Light the bowl and hold the top half of the bottle above water. Wait until the entire top half of the bottle fills with smoke.

After the bottle fills with smoke, unscrew the cap, put your mouth on the bottle, press down and suck as much smoke as you can into your lungs—the result: face-melting.

A Bubbler

A classic mix between a glass bong and a glass pipe, bubbles are the perfect cost-effective alternative to both. If you can’t decide between a glass bong or bowl, choose the device that acts like both. This bong/bowl hybrid is perfect for a bedroom smoking device.

If you want to get a little toasty while you cook dinner, seek out the bubbler.


Blunts are best served with large groups of people and mid-grade weed. They can also taste delicious if you know how to flavor them correctly. An excellent blunt roller makes you feel like a weed aficionado.

Because you roll blunts with cigar paper instead of cigarette paper, they have a tastier profile. It also means they smoke for longer and have more weed in them. If you’re planning on smoking a blunt by yourself, prepare for a long night.

The One Hitter

One-hitters are fantastic for long road trips and hikes, anything where you’re going to be on the move for a long time. They’re portable, compact, easy to use, and don’t get you too stoned to function.

Take a puff on your lunch break or just before you start the day. With one-hitters, you can take one hit, feel a nice buzz, and move on.


Bowls are the staple of anyone who enjoys smoking weed. If you smoke marijuana, you need to have a bowl. Who wants to go through all the time and money to roll joints and buy bongs?

Glass bowls give you everything you need to enjoy your smoking experience. Clean rips, psychedelic designs, repeat usage, the list of advantages continues.


If you want to blow your face off, take a dab. The butane has oil extremely potent and heats up to high temperatures, so you get super blitzed. You don’t just light dabs with a simple lighter; you light them with a blow torch, which is kind of over-the-top, as is everything else to do with dabs.

Even though you might be the highest you’ve ever been in your entire life, dabbing is healthier than smoking weed.

The Best Ways to Smoke Weed Depend On the Smoker

Whether you like bowls, bongs or joints doesn’t matter. The best ways to smoke weed are the ones you enjoy. Don’t try to be cool and get as blitzed as possible with a dab if you don’t want to. There’s no shame in being a casual smoker.

Take your time, acclimate to smoking devices, and you will have the time of your life.
