How To Pack a Bowl Properly

Load your bowl quickly and easily

For the veteran marijuana users, this article will not be too informational; odds are you already know the information being presented. However, if this is your first time venturing into the world of cannabis, this article should prove both useful and valuable.

Consuming marijuana out of a bowl is a method preferred by countless cannabis users. Unlike other weed smoking accessories, bowls provide a smoother hit than blunts or joints, and many feel bowls get you more stoned than other methods.

There are only two things required to pack a bowl: marijuana and a bowl. (Pretty obvious, right?) Some people will tell you to use a weed grinder for a finer grind and a more even burn, but a lot of people enjoy breaking down the buds by hand.

Before we begin, it is important to know what type of bowl you should choose (and what types you should not). The best type of bowl is a glass bowl because glass does not melt and provides smoother, sometimes even cooler, smoke. Never use a bowl that is plastic or tin foil. Studies have shown that smokers who use bowls made out of plastic or aluminum materials are more likely to develop Alzheimer’s later in life.

Now, that we know what materials we need and which type of bowl is best, let’s get into the meat and potatoes of this how-to. Below are the steps for packing a bowl. (These steps are interchangeable with other smoking devices besides bowls including chillums and pipes.)

How to Pack a Bowl without a Grinder

  • Step 1: Take your bud and break off an amount you think you are going to smoke.
  • Step 2: Hold the bud over the bowl (to avoid losing the weed) and start breaking the bud into small pieces. (The smaller the pieces are, the better; they will be easier to get into the bowl, and they will burn smoother.)
  • Step 3: Once you have filled up the bowl, or have broken down the amount you are going to use and packed it into the bowl. Use your thumb to push down the weed to pack it. (You don’t want your bowl to overflow and if you don’t pack it, it will not burn smoothly.)
  • Step 4: This is where things start heating up (pun-intended). Take your flame, light it up, inhale, and enjoy!

How to Pack a Bowl with a Grinder

  • Step 1: Take your bud and break off an amount you think you are going to smoke.
  • Step 2: Place the marijuana into the grinder. (Try to place the weed between the spikes.)
  • Step 3: Rotate your grinder until all of the weed in the chamber is completely broken down.
  • Step 4: Empty the contents of the grinder directly into the bowl.
  • Step 5: Once you have filled up the bowl, use your thumb to push down the weed to make a tighter pack.
  • Step 6: Light it up, inhale and enjoy!

Tip: Place a small nug over the hole before packing a pipe or a chillum. This will prevent the buds from going into your mouth as you inhale. Nobody likes a scooby snack!
