5 Reasons aluminum should never be used in Smoking devices!

Aluminum should not be used in smoking devices like pipes, bongs, or other smoking apparatuses for several reasons, primarily due to potential health concerns associated with its use.

1.     Off-gassing and Health Concerns: Aluminum is a metal that can potentially release harmful particles and gases when heated to high temperatures, especially in the presence of direct flame. When aluminum is heated, it can release aluminum oxide particles and other compounds that could be inhaled when using a smoking device. These particles can be detrimental to respiratory health and might contribute to lung irritation or other health issues.

2.     Toxic Fumes: At elevated temperatures, aluminum can oxidize and release fumes that are potentially toxic when inhaled. These fumes might include compounds like aluminum oxide and aluminum hydroxide, which can have adverse effects on the respiratory system.

3.     Metal Contamination: Over time, the repeated heating and cooling cycles that occur when using a smoking device can cause the aluminum to degrade, potentially leading to metal contamination of the smoke. Inhaling particles of degraded aluminum can be harmful to health, as the body may not be able to effectively eliminate these particles.

4.     Potential Reactions with Smoke: The chemicals present in the smoke being inhaled can interact with the aluminum, potentially leading to the formation of new compounds that are harmful when inhaled.

5.     Potential Allergic Reactions: Some individuals might be sensitive or allergic to aluminum, and exposure through smoking devices could trigger adverse reactions.

For these reasons, it is generally recommended to avoid using aluminum in smoking devices. Instead, it’s better to choose materials that are known to be safe for heating and inhaling, such as borosilicate glass, ceramic, or stainless steel. These materials are less likely to release harmful substances when heated and are therefore considered safer choices for smoking device construction.

It’s important to prioritize your health and make informed choices when using smoking devices or any other products that involve inhaling substances. If you have concerns about the materials used in your smoking device, consider exploring alternative options that are designed with safety in mind.

Why Using a Bong, Bubbler or Rig Will Enhance Your Smoking Experience

It should come as no surprise that we are absolutely madly in love with all things glass! We love bongs, rigs and bubblers! We love the ritual of taking that first dab after a long hard day. The way it looks and feels to snap a rip through a beautiful piece of glass. Especially when that dab is consumed through a legitimate piece of functional glass art. Not only is it esthetically pleasing but because the smoke is filtered through water, which makes it smoother and cooler, it makes for a more pleasant smoking experience. Here we will highlight the top reasons to use a Bong, Bubbler or Rig.

Smoother smoke
One of the biggest advantages of using a water bong is the smoothness of the smoke. The water filters out the harsh toxins and carcinogens, leaving you with a smoother, cooler smoke that is easier on your throat and lungs. This is particularly beneficial for people who have sensitive lungs or who experience coughing and throat irritation when smoking.

Improved taste
The water in a bong not only cools the smoke but also filters out some of the impurities, resulting in a cleaner, more pure smoke. This means that you can enjoy the natural flavors of your terps with less harshness or bitterness.

Aesthetically pleasing
Glass is beautiful! Whether it’s your beloved daily driver you bought at your local smoke shop for a deal or an expensive unique handblown work of art. They are all beautiful and collectable. The Functional glass art movement has become recognized as a legitimate art form where intricate and colorful glass pipes, bubblers, and bongs have become highly sought after and prized works of art. What would be more pleasing that having a dab out of a $15K heady glass masterpiece?

More efficient use of product
Another benefit of using a water bong is that it allows for a more efficient use of cannabis. The water cools the smoke, which reduces the amount of smoke lost to the air. This means that you can get more smoke per hit, resulting in a more effective use of your flower or concentrates.

The Social Experience
The old saying goes “A friend with weed is a friend indeed!” Nothing better than sharing a smoke session with some good friends. Especially when that session is through a lovely new bong, rig, or bubbler. Humans are social animals and communal experiences elevate and enhances your life.

Healthier than a Joint
Finally, Smoking through a glass water bong can offer some potential health benefits compared to other smoking methods. Here are a few:

Reduced irritation
Smoking through a glass water bong can help reduce the irritation in your throat and lungs. The water cools the smoke and filters out some of the harsh toxins, making the smoke smoother and easier on your respiratory system.

Reduced exposure to toxins
As mentioned earlier, the water in the bong can filter out some of the toxins and carcinogens found in smoke, resulting in a cleaner and purer smoking experience.

So there you have it! Using a water pipe, bong, bubbler or rig, can enhance your smoking experience in several ways. It provides a smoother smoke, improves the taste of your flower or concentrates, allows for more efficient use, can be aesthetically pleasing, and be a great way to get the crew together.
