Denver Marijuana Dispensary Settles the Joints vs Bowls Debate

January 16, 2019

When it comes to getting high, you have tons of options to choose from. There are vape pens, tinctures, edibles, and flower, all of which will get the job done right. For those that love to smoke, however, the choice often comes down to a joint or a bowl. Wondering which option is best for you? We decided it was time to weigh in on the debate! Here are a few things to consider when deciding between joints from your favorite Denver dispensary and packing a bowl at home. 

Joints Are Way More Portable

When it comes to carrying weed with you on the go, nothing beats the convenience of a joint. When rolled properly, they seal the weed inside and easily fit in your pocket. Best of all, they can’t break! Bowls, on the other hand, take up a lot more space in your bag and if you drop them on a hard surface, there’s always a chance that you’ll be left cleaning up shattered glass rather than enjoying your high. 

Bowls Provide Cleaner Flavors

When you light a joint, you’re not just getting the pot…you’re getting the burned paper as well. Though most smokers won’t notice the taste of high-quality papers, some swear it impacts the flavor of the weed. When you smoke from a bowl, all you’re getting is the taste of the weed itself. If you’re looking for purity of flavor, stick to a bowl. Your tongue and your senses will thank you. 

Joints Take Skill to Roll Well

Rolling the perfect joint takes a lot of practice. When done right, the pot burns evenly and for a long time, making it the perfect way to share your high with friends. However, when it’s done poorly, you’ll be left with a bunch of air pockets that make your high less potent and enjoyable. Packing a bowl is incredibly easy, takes minimal skill, and lets you use even the smallest amount of pot. You won’t have to worry about packing it too tightly or not using enough weed to make it worth smoking. 

Bowls Are More Budget-Friendly

Rolling papers may be cheap to purchase, but if you’re buying them every few weeks, that price can quickly add up. Worse, you’ll need to have more pot on hand just to roll a joint worth lighting. This can take a toll on your budget over the course of the year. When you purchase a pipe, you can reuse it for years. You only need to buy a new one when you feel like it or your old one breaks. Best of all, you can light as much or as little pot as you want—you’ll still be able to get high. 

Both joints and bowls are a great way to get high, but they serve different purposes. If you’re smoking at home, we recommend a good glass pipe or bong. But if you’re planning on smoking on the go or are taking pot to share with friends, you’ll be better off with a few good joints. No matter what method you choose, you’ll need to stock up on quality cannabis before you can enjoy your high. Stop by one of our three locations and pick up some fresh bud today.
