Learning how to properly smoke a joint may sound simple, but sometimes, consumers will either inhale too much or not enough. While these mistakes primarily happen to those with little to no experience with hemp, it’s never wrong to touch up on tips to gain the most out of your product.

Instead of wasting flower because you smoked it incorrectly, let us guide you on some easy techniques to create the ideal experience. In this article, we will cover the importance of planning ahead, and of course, how to smoke a joint for the first time.

It’s Time to Prepare

Unless you are the planning type, it may seem obsessive to schedule your session with hemp but trust us; this is not something you want to skip.

If you don’t use hemp regularly and decide to jump in without any thought, it could potentially affect your experience. While there are many factors at play, based on customer feedback, it is suggested that being in the right environment, along with some fun activities and treats, may encourage the effects you are hoping to feel.

Flower Quality Matters

The quality of the flower will determine the aroma, taste, and effectiveness of the plant, which means if you want to gain the most from your experience, buy your pre-rolls and flower from hemp stores or solidified manufacturers online.

Buying hemp online may sound new to you, but it’s a total gamechanger. Our online store can be accessed 24 hours a day with an array of Delta-8 joints, blunts, and flower. Simply choose any of the products or accessories you need and place your order. From there, we box it up and ship it right to your door.

Plan Your Session Out

Before grabbing your Delta-8 flower, make sure you complete your daily tasks or any other chores. By doing this, you won’t have to deal with work stress, and instead, you get to enjoy your well-deserved break from life, thoroughly.

After hitting all your goals for the day, it’s time to put yourself in the right setting. While everyone’s preferred environment is different, we recommend staying at home with a small group of trusted friends. We can’t guarantee that your friends won’t mess with you a little, especially if this is your first time with hemp, but when you surround yourself with the right people, it helps encourage a night full of giggles and other fun.

It’s Time to Smoke

Whenever you’re ready to smoke your pre-roll, it’s time to grab your lighter and begin!

With the Delta-8 joint in your hands, you will take the lighter and apply it at the tip of the joint. Your instinct may be to inhale while applying flame, but you cannot do this to pre-rolls because it will prevent you from controlling the speed of the burn and can cause your joint to canoe.

When a pre-roll starts canoeing, only one side of the joint burns, while the other remains untouched. To prevent this from happening, you need to light the end of the joint while rotating it. Once your joint is burning, it’s time to smoke.

If you have smoked joints before, you likely know the ideal amount to inhale. However, for those that don’t partake with hemp often, we highly recommend taking a few small puffs. Unless smoking hemp is a part of your daily routine, you should only need to use a small portion of the pre-roll. Consuming anymore may put you on a journey you weren’t expecting to take.

Lastly, let’s discuss a common question—how long does it take to smoke a joint? This will depend on how much you normally consume and if you’re sharing it with other people. Typically, a quick joint session should only last a few minutes, but if you have a group of friends passing it around, prepare for it to be gone faster.

Techniques to Inhale Hemp Properly

When first-time hemp customers inhale the smoke from the joint, they tend to leave it in their mouth without letting it fill their lungs, resulting in little to no effects. Rather than doing this, you need to inhale the smoke deeply into your lungs and hold it there for a few seconds before releasing it back into the air.

If you are prone to coughing attacks when using hemp, it can feel embarrassing. The good news is this is avoidable too. The next time the joint is passed to you, start with little puffs and allow your lungs to rest. By doing this over time, your inhalation tolerance will improve.

Takeaway

Completely knowing how to smoke a prerolled joint is critical, so you can obtain all of the precious cannabinoids and terpenes. But beyond the effects, inhaling the smoke correctly happens to be the secret behind conserving your flower. While each person has their own perspective on smoking a joint, no one can deny that inhaling slowly and deeply is the ultimate rule of thumb.
