10 Common Ways You Can Smoke Weed

A lot of people smoke weed these days. The person standing behind you at the grocery store could be a stoner, and the person in the car next to you at the stop light might have a dry herb or distillate vape pen sitting in their cup holder. The number of people who smoke weed is only increasing, and won’t stop anytime soon. Stoners are international, and we are all over the place. Young and old. Black and white. There are stoners from all backgrounds. 

The truth is that everyone has their preferred way of smoking. If you line up five stoners and ask each of them how they prefer to consume cannabis, chances are you’ll get a different response from each person. There are bong smokers, blunt smokers, joint smokers, and those who purely consume edibles. 

Whether you’re looking for a new way to smoke weed, or you just want to educate yourself, you’ll find the most popular ways to smoke weed in 2022 below. 

  1. Bongs

Bongs are one of the most popular ways to consume cannabis. Not only that, bongs come in all different shapes and sizes. You can even find stoners who have entire collections of bongs, sometimes filled with a hundred or more bongs. 

Bongs come in glass or silicone. Silicone bongs are cheaper and won’t break, but they are extremely hard to clean. Glass bongs are more expensive and are prone to breaking, but they are easier to personalize. 

The type of bong you prefer depends on your budget and how clumsy you are when it comes to breaking things. Most stoners prefer having glass bongs. 

There are bongs known as “headies”. Headies are very pricey bongs that have an intricate, specific design. To put it simply, heady bongs are bongs that aren’t massively reproduced by Chinese markets. These bongs can cost upwards of $1,000 or more. Owning a heady bong is a sign of a stoner who truly loves and prefers smoking weed out of bongs.

  1. Dab Rigs

Dabbing is a term used to describe smoking concentrated THC oil, otherwise known as concentrates. Concentrates are smoked by using a dab rig. A dab rig is a fancy term to describe a bong that’s used to dab. 

Dabbing is still relatively new to the cannabis scene. Those who are unfamiliar with dabbing may find it daunting or weird to smoke cannabis oil. Some attribute dabbing similar to smoking crack, however dabbing is nothing like that. Dabbing is entirely safe and is quickly becoming as popular as smoking regular cannabis flowers. 

Dabbing is the process of vaporizing concentrates. In order to dab, you heat up a quartz banger or terp slurper. After heating it up, you then place a small dollop of concentrates onto the hot surface of the banger or slurper. You’ll then inhale the vapor, and exhale the concentrated smoke. 

Keep in mind that dabbing is known to cause more intense coughing fits, meaning you can expect to cough either longer or harder than you would with regular weed. This is due to the high temperature needed to properly vaporize the concentrates. Dabbing is also known to cause “dab sweats” because of the high level of THC you are ingesting when you take a dab. Dab sweats are a normal part of dabbing.

There is also such a thing as taking a dab that’s too hot. This could cause you to go into a coughing fit that could cause you to vomit or become nauseous. Dabbing is normally for more experienced stoners, less for newbies. 

  1. Edibles

Stoners are divided when it comes to edibles. Edibles are cannabis-infused food. Edibles can come in the form of candy or can even be infused meals. When you take edibles, you can easily be high for 6-12 hours. Sometimes you can still be high the next day, depending on how many milligrams of THC is in the edibles you take. 

Recreational and medical users love edibles. Edibles are especially useful for those suffering from chronic illnesses or mental health disorders who need long-term relief. Unlike regular cannabis herbs, edibles last longer and have a heavier high. 

The coolest aspect of edibles is the fact that there are so many choices. There are cannabis-infused gummy worms, chips, drinks, Slurpees, and more! Whatever food comes to mind, it can be infused with weed. 

  1. Tinctures

Tinctures are a form of cannabis that comes in oil. You drop a couple of drops underneath your tongue. Tinctures can come in CBD, THC, or a mixture of both. The best kind for you depends on what you’re looking for. 

Medical and recreational users love using tinctures. Tinctures aren’t nearly as popular as other methods of consuming cannabis. 

  1. One Hitter

One hitters are a great, easy, convenient way to smoke weed when you’re in a pinch. Those who have short lunch breaks enjoy using one-hitters. It’s a simple way to get in a few hits when you don’t have a lot of time, but still want to get high. 

One hitter comes in the shape of a blunt. There is a small compartment you put your weed in. The other side of the one-hitter is for inhaling. One hitters aren’t as popular as bongs, dabbing, or vaping. 

  1. Vape Pens (Dry Herb, Concentrates, Distillate, Live Resin)

Vape pens are one of the most common ways for stoners to get their fix! There are various different types of vape pens. There are dry herb vape pens, which are vape pens specifically meant to vape flowers. There are also dab pens, distillate pens, and live resin pens. 

Dab pens are used to smoke concentrates. You buy the vape pen and concentrate separately. Dab pens are used purely for concentrates. Dab pens always have a part inside where you place your concentrates. This part has coils that effectively vaporize the concentrates at a safe temperature. (Be prepared for dab sweats!)

Vape pens with distillate THC oil or live resin are the most popular vape pens you’ll find at a medical or recreational dispensary. You can also find pens that are purely CBD, or they have a 1:1 ratio of THC and CBD. 

If you are wanting a CBD vape pen, make sure you purchase one from a reputable source. Not all CBD pens are made equal. There are companies out there who claim to make CBD pens, but CBD oil isn’t in these pens. Same with any company that also sells Delta-8 vape pens. 

  1. Joints

Ah, nothing like a good joint! Joints are one of the most common ways to smoke weed. Anyone can roll a joint! Stoners enjoy rolling and smoking joints because it’s easier to taste the weed. 

Joints aren’t rolled in tobacco leaves, so you won’t get any nicotine fix when you decide to toke up with a joint. Joints also can be rolled skinny or super fat. Whatever your preferences, you can roll a joint however you want!

  1. Blunts

When someone smokes a blunt, they are smoking cannabis wrapped in a tobacco leaf. Unlike joints, there is nicotine in a blunt because of the tobacco leaf. Some people dislike blunts due to the fact it’s harder to taste the flavor of the weed. You mostly taste the flavor of the tobacco leaf or blunt wrap. 

Blunt wraps come in a variety of flavors, so as long as you pick flavors you like smoking blunts should be an enjoyable experience. One negative of blunts is the fact that it leaves behind evidence of a smoke session. 

If you’re trying to be secretive about your smoking, you might want to choose another method of smoking weed. Blunts are the smelliest way to enjoy smoking some cannabis. Blunts are also a popular way to smoke in social settings. 

  1. Pipes

You’ll be hard-pressed to find a person who hasn’t smoked out of a pipe. Much like bongs, pipes can come in glass or silicone. Pipes are an amazing way to consume cannabis if you like to take your time. You can take a hit or two, then set your pipe down until you’re ready again. 

If you’re prone to knocking everything and anything over, you’ll want to choose silicone pipes. If you enjoy the feeling of smoking out of a glass, you can choose glass pipes. Most people will choose glass pipes. They look cooler, and you get a smoother smoking experience. 

Silicone pipes are difficult to keep clean. However, both types of pipes are prone to becoming clogged. Clogged pipes are annoying to fix. To prevent clogged pipes, you should aim to clean out your silicone or glass pipe with rubbing alcohol and salt to make sure it stays in tip-top shape.

  1. Spliffs

Spliffs are more common in Europe. Spliffs consist of a mixture of tobacco and weed rolled in a joint. These are definitely the least popular ways to smoke weed. This mixture is known to cause headaches, the main reason for this being the last of our ladies of the most common ways to smoke weed. 

Sometimes, people also mix tobacco and weed in a bowl. They then smoke this bowl through a bong or pipe. Although we don’t recommend doing this, the smoke can be very harsh. Especially through a bong or pipe. 

If you ever watch a UK show, you might just notice the word “spliff” being thrown around. Now you’ll know what they’re talking about when someone says they are going to smoke a spliff! 


As you can see, there are multiple ways any stoner can enjoy consuming cannabis. No matter whether you consume medically or recreationally, there’s something for everyone. The best parts of being a stoner are there’s always a new way to smoke! 

Tired of bongs? Try a blunt or joint! Tired of blunts? Try bongs! Tired of edibles? Try a vape pen! Tired of flowers? Try to concentrate! There are so many possibilities when it comes to consuming cannabis, all you have to do is decide which methods are your top favorites. If there’s a method of consuming cannabis you haven’t tried yet, now is the time!

The coolest part of smoking weed, there are always new gadgets coming out. A decade ago, you wouldn’t have guessed that you would be able to smoke concentrates out of a vape, or electric rig! Times are changing, in the best way possible for stoners everywhere.
