Carts are becoming more popular everyday, however in the recent news there have been people hospitalized from smoking bad carts. Regardless of which side of the debate you’re on, I belive that bowls are better than carts. There is no denying that smoking has become much less of a taboo topic than it was even just a few years ago.
When it comes to smoking, every smoker has a personal preference. Some prefer bowls because of the countless benefits they offer while some prefer carts because they are convenient to use. But convienence alone is not enough to persuade me to smoke carts. I believe that smoking bowls has been popular for a long time because how great it is and the bowl will out last smoking carts.
Let’s get started
What is the bowl?
If you are old school, you must have heard about hand pipes. A hand pipe is an ancient tool used for smoking. It has an attached bowl, a reservoir and doesn’t require water. Compared to carts and bongs, the hand pipe provides a different smoking experience to the stoner. These are easy to use, and one of the most portable smoking tools available. You can find different types of hand pipes online, such as dry hand pipes, and water hand pipes. The features like discreet, portable, and easy to clean can make it appealing to any stoner.
What is a cart?
Carts, also known as cartridges, is a favorite smoking device of young people. It is a small attachment to a vape pen or an e-cigarette. You can buy them empty or pre-filled with specific concentrations, depending on your needs. Smoking carts is very convienient however there is no way to tell what exactly is in the carts or what you are vaping. There is no smoke involved as the oil heated gets vaporized. Below is an image of a cart vape pen, there are lots of different styles of these devices however they are made in a factory unlike bowls which are hand crafted by artists.
Why Smoking A Bowl Is Better Than Carts?
There are lots of reasons why smoking bowls is better than carts. Here are just a few.
- It’s “Healthy”
People have been smoking bowls for decades. Smoking bowls is tested and does not cause any health problems. On the other hand, as per a report by doctors in California, carts have sent people to the hospital. The side effects of smoking carts has not been found out as the technology is so new. Is it worth being the guinea pig for a brand new technology. In my opinion this alone is enough to make me never want to smoke a cart again.
While you might think breaking a bowl is easier than breaking a cart vape pen is you would be wrong. Bowls function without batteries and always work. Cart vape pens can crap out at any time and there is nothing you can do. If your vape battery dies and you are in the middle of a smoke break you are screwed. As long as you do not smash your bowl it will work for ever.
Some people like the artificial taste of carts however not me. I prefer the natural flavor of the herb. While smoking carts I think about the chemicals in the carts. People have smoked natural herb for thousands of years and it seemed to work for them. I think the artificial flavors of these carts will become unpopular once people find out more information.
- Bowls Look Better
There are millions of different styles, distinct shades, colors, and designs for bowls. Not only are there different styles but there are also bowls that function very differently, there are chillums, spoon pipes, sherlocks, bubblers, and steamrollers plus way more. If you are looking for high-quality spoon pipes, you can explore our All in 1 Smoke Shop, where you’ll find a distinctive style of hand pipes. However, when it comes to carts, they are basicly the same.
How to smoke from a Hand Pipe?
Smoking from a hand pipe is not rocket science. Just a few simple steps and you can take a hit.
The first step is to grind the herb. You do not want the herb to be too finely ground so it does not get pulled through the bowl during combustion. After grinding the herb you need to pack it in the bowl, you do not want to pack the bowl too tight or the herb will not be able to light properly.
- Make sure the strain is well-grounded.
- Make pack the bowl.
- Light herb and pull.
Even if you are a newbie, inhaling from hand pipe seems like a piece of cake.
Final Verdict: Who is the winner?
From the above information, it is clear that bowls are the clear winner.
