How to Smoke a Bowl for Beginners: 10 Mistakes I Made

For numerous people, smoking weed is a ritual of passage. It’s commodity that you do to relax, have fun, and bond with musketeers. But if you are new to smoking, it can be a bit daunting. There are so numerous effects to learn, and it’s easy to make miscalculations.

In this blog post, I’m going to share 10 mistakes that I made when I first started smoking weed. I hope that by sharing my story, I can help other beginners avoid making the same mistakes.

Picking the Wrong Strain.

The most frequent error novice marijuana smokers make is choosing the incorrect strain. There are numerous marijuana strains, each of which has a distinct set of effects. Some strains are stronger than others, and some work better for different types of illnesses than others. Do your homework before purchasing marijuana, and don’t be afraid to contact a staff member at the dispensary for assistance in selecting the best strain for you.

Another mistake beginner smokers make is smoking too much. It is important to start slow when smoking weed, especially if you are new to the drug. Take a few small puffs and wait a few minutes to see how the weed affects you before taking another hit. It is also important to remember that everyone reacts differently to marijuana, so what may be a safe amount for one person could be too much for another. If you start to feel anxious or paranoid, stop smoking and drink some water or eat something sugary to help calm your nerves.

Not Grinding Your Weed.

When smoking marijuana for the first time, one of the most frequent mistakes individuals do is not crushing their herb. Although it may seem like a minor distinction, it has a significant impact. Your marijuana won’t burn evenly and you’ll waste a lot of it if you don’t grind it first. Another error made by novices is rolling subpar marijuana. Your marijuana will fall out of your joint if you don’t know how to roll a joint properly, which will be a waste of time and money.

Poor Quality Weed.

I didn’t adequately cure my marijuana before I started smoking it, which was my first error. I would simply dry it out before smoking it, but the weed never really appeared to taste that great, and it always gave me a headache. I wasn’t aware of what I was missing till I correctly healed my marijuana.

To cure your weed, you need to dry it slowly and then store it in an airtight container. This will help the weed retain its flavor and smell, and make it much easier on your lungs when you smoke it.

Smoking Out of Dirty Bong.

Using a filthy bong is among the worst things you can do when smoking a bowl. It can be harmful to your health as well as making your marijuana taste unpleasant. You expose yourself to a variety of bacteria and poisons that can make you ill when you smoke from a filthy bong.

It’s important to clean your bong regularly, and even more important to use a screen. A screen will help keep your weed from falling into the water and getting contaminated. Without a screen, you’re just asking for trouble.

Burning Your Throat.

Inhaling too deeply is one of the most frequent errors people make when smoking a bowl for the first time. This may aggravate your throat and make you cough. Take little sips of smoke instead of deep breaths to prevent this. Breathe in carefully and exhale after a brief moment of holding the smoke in your lungs. Try to avoid taking in the smoke directly into your throat as another piece of advice. Instead, let it fill your mouth completely before breathing it in.

Hitting It Too Hard.

Bongs are a great way to smoke weed, but they can be tricky to use if you’re not familiar with them. Here are a few tips to help you avoid making some common mistakes when using a bong for the first time.

1. Don’t hit it too hard. The last thing you want is to end up coughing your lungs out. Start with small hits and work your way up to bigger ones.

2. Don’t use too much water. You should only fill the bong up about halfway so that the water doesn’t splash into your mouth when you take a hit.

3. Make sure the bowl is packed tight, but not too tight. If it’s too loose, the weed will just fall through and go to waste. If it’s too tight, you won’t be able to get a good hit.

4. Put your lips inside the mouthpiece and suck gently while lighting the bowl. This will help create a seal so that no air escapes when you take a hit.

5. Inhale slowly and steadily until you’ve filled your lungs with smoke, then exhale immediately. Bongs can deliver a lot of smoke at once, so it’s important not to try and hold it in for too long or you’ll start coughing uncontrollably.

Not Knowing When to Stop.

When I first started smoking, one error I made was not knowing when to stop. I used to smoke until I felt queasy or dizzy, and then I would eat or drink something to try to offset the effects. Normally, this would only make me feel worse and waste a lot of cannabis. I now know to stop smoking after a few hits and to drink a lot of water both before and after.


In conclusion, smoking a bowl for beginners doesn’t have to be difficult or complicated. By avoiding these ten mistakes, you’ll be well on your way to enjoying a great smoke. So grab some weed, find a comfortable spot, and light up!
