You and Your Bong Will Love Piece Water

Your Bong Needs Piece Water!

Ever since the advent of medical marijuana in the US, delivery systems have gotten more complex. Instead of smoking a joint, bowl, or bong, now we have concentrates, pens, dabs, edibles….

But C Che and I are old school, preferring a nice bong hit on our lovely 9″ glass Roor.

Now, bongs are not the cleanest things in the world. They smell, resin and tar build up in the bong and any component parts, and quite a bit of particulate matter comes up through the water (which is a problem if you are a stoner with asthma, like C Che). We end up using iso alcohol to get our piece clean, which can be intense but better than the poisonous “bong cleaners” you can buy.

A couple of weeks ago our good friends at Stuff Stoners Like did a Piece Water review and giveaway, and we won!

We were so skeptical, for no reason. Piece Water worked so well, on so many levels, that we immediately ordered three 12oz. bottles.

Piece Water solves every bong issue! All of them.

Piece Water is All Natural

Unlike iso alcohol and other caustic cleaners, Piece Water is all natural. It is water blended with fruit, mineral, and vegetable extracts. We poured it into a measuring cup, and it left a slight film on the glass. It is slightly thicker than water, completely odorless, and tasteless.

Just Rinse Your Bong Clean With Water

Instead of spending lots of time soaking, shaking, and scrubbing your bong, with Piece Water you just pour out the contents and rinse your bong with warm water. Seriously, that’s it! No build up on the sides or on the stem.

Less Smell

bongI don’t know about you, but I hate stinky bong water. Normally we change the water at least once a day just to handle smell and build-up.

We decided to really push things, letting the bong go close to three days without a change (over 125 hits, my friends). Not only did the water still not smell too bad, but there was no build-up.

 

Cleaner Smoke

This was the most surprising for us, and ultimately the reason why we immediately ordered more Piece Water. With his asthma, C Che normally coughs a lot when he smokes, and ends up coughing up a lot of the particulate.

In the first use, he noticed a huge difference – smoother hits, and much less coughing up of particulate. And this was true even when the water looked like this after a few days!

I noticed a difference too. Less particulate means I can take bigger hits and hold them longer without coughing, leading to a more satisfying experience.

Having to go back to regular water for a few days was a huge bummer! Luckily Piece Water’s free shipping is USPS Priority Mail, so we had it in two business days.

Piece Water Is Cost Effective

Piece Water comes in 12oz. bottles, and the best deal is 3 @ $25. Our globe-bottomed 9″ Roor takes 3oz. and we like to change it every other day, so this lasts us a little over three weeks. Not bad at all!

Marijuana Munchies

Marijuana Munchies

Many people, such as cancer patients, use marijuana precisely to increase their appetites and gain weight. Other folks need to control their marijuana munchies to maintain or lose weight.  The Munchies is one of the most famous and often reported effects of cannabis.

Why does cannabis cause increased appetite?

This has to do with how the human brain reacts to the consumption of Cannabis, setting off a chain reaction that leads to an urgent desire for food. There is actually a specific cannabinoid receptor that increases hunger.

Basically, there is a hunger switch in our brains that is triggered when we ingest THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), the substance that is responsible for the euphoric effect of the plant. This happens whether we smoke a joint, use a vaporizer, or eat some food that contains THC.

What is interesting is that marijuana actually stimulates a very specific receptor in a group of neurons that are typically in charge of limiting our appetite. But, when the CB1 receptors are stimulated by THC, the neurons work in the opposite way and increase our appetite. In addition, after Cannabis use our blood-sugar levels drop, and that also causes an increased appetite.

What if I need to lose weight?

Now, if you are trying to lose weight, as I am, this effect of cannabis can be a problem.

Here are some ideas of how you can control yourself when you have the munchies:

  • Add some honey and lemon to a pitcher of warm water. Adding ginger, or mint can make the cocktail even more tasty. Can drink warm or iced.
  • If you absolutely have to eat something other than a regular meal, try to replace junk food with healthier alternatives. Instead of fried chips try baked chips, popcorn, or rice crackers. Instead of candy, try fruit or lower calorie, natural yogurt.
  • Brush your teeth right after smoking marijuana. This will reduce your appetite by leaving a taste of minty freshness in your mouth.

Lists abound of the top Zombie movies, Zombie shows, Zombie books. But even in a great Zombie movie, there is usually just one or two Zombies that we really remember (especially since we tend to smoke a lot of pot during movies, which can make it hard to remember).

The guys at WatchMojo.com have come with their list of the top 10 most memorable movie Zombies, pulling from both old and new films.

Do you agree with their choices? Any other zombies that you think should have made the list? Leave a comment and let us know!

We Joined The First Church of Cannabis

We Joined The First Church of Cannabis

C Che and I have questioned organized religion for years. While I do identify as Jewish, and in fact organized the Jewish Community on the small Caribbean island where we lived for a few years, I have trouble with the dogma of orthodoxy. C Che was raised southern Baptist, but lately has identified as Buddhist.

I lean toward Buddhism as well, specifically Tibetan Buddhism. I find the teachings and the mantras to be helpful. Here is a healing Medicine Buddha Mantra.

And then, in the midst of a totally insane moment in the US where more and more people seem sure of their protected right to discriminate, the First Church of Cannabis was born. Minister of Love and Grand Poobah Bill Levin started the church when the state of Indiana passed a “Religious Protection Law,” giving business owners the right to discriminate based on religious belief. But Levin saw an opening. If he could form a recognized Church devoted to Cannabis in the state of Indiana, wouldn’t the Religious Protection Law ensure that members could have their sacrament? That they could worship by smoking cannabis?

We joined as soon as we could, and can’t wait to actually attend a service, either at the church or somewhere else, as they travel. So far there has been a wedding in the Church, but still no marijuana.

Levin is being smart by respecting the law and building up the Church as a place of worship and of support for members and the community. The wedding was just the start. Levin recently sued the state to allow marijuana consumption in the church, as it is an important piece of the worship and our religious right to worship fully in our church should be protected under Indiana state law.

Marijuana is the Safest Recreational Drug

marijuana is the safest

According to Scientific Reports, marijuana is the safest recreational drug.

We always knew in our hearts and minds that marijuana is safe. The worst thing you ever hear about our favorite plant is weight gain from eating too much.

As reported by Alternet.com, pot is 114 times safer than alcohol. Yes, you read that correctly. Marijuana is 114 times safer than legal alcohol.

In this study, researchers compared the lethal dose of a drug to the amount that a recreational user would ingest. With alcohol, heroin, and cocaine the lethal dose was quite close to the recreational dose (which, we would imagine, gets worse when you mix the drugs).

Marijuana, on the other hand, has a very low risk of morbidity. You can take a lot without it killing you!

“The risk of cannabis may have been overestimated in the past,” wrote Dirk W. Lachenmeier and Jurgen Rehm the two researchers involved with the study. “In contrast, the risk of alcohol may have been commonly underestimated.”

So why are we all still so worried about legalizing weed? Even the Colorado police acknowledges that crime is down and that drug use amongst teens is down since the state’s legalization of recreational marijuana.

Legalize it!
