How To Get The Highest From A Small Amount Of Marijuana

If you have consumed cannabis long enough, chances are you have run into a situation in which you are short on cannabis and need to maximize every flake of what you have. Perhaps it’s because you are waiting on payday to arrive, or you are having a hard time scoring more cannabis, or some other reason.

What is the best way to get the highest from the least amount of cannabis? As with most things cannabis consumption related, there is no one-size-fits-all answer. Cannabis affects different people in different ways and so what might work for one person may not work as well for another person.

With that being said, I have consumed cannabis for many years with many people, and hands down the highest I have ever seen people get from the smallest amount of cannabis is by using a modified 2-liter soda bottle. I have heard the contraption called many names including a waterfall, a aqua lung, and a third lung.

My best friends and I simply refer to it as ‘a liter.’ When we ask new friends if they want to ‘take a liter’ the new friends tend to think of a gravity bong, which is close to the same concept but not quite the same thing. A gravity bong involves cutting the 2-liter in half, filling a bucket full of water, and pulling up on the 2-liter as the cannabis burns, as seen below:

The gravity bong consumption method definitely packs a punch and is an option if you have a small amount of cannabis and want to get as high as possible from it. However, it does require a certain technique to get the biggest hit possible. The waterfall bong, or whatever you want to call it, does not require the skill level that a gravity bong does, as seen below:

The image above is a little misleading, in that what fills the bottle is smoke not vapor, but you get the concept. It’s much easier to execute than the gravity bong. It uses far less cannabis for the same level of stoned-ness compared to regular bongs, pipes, joints, blunts, etc.

Obviously, this method involves smoking from a mass-produced plastic soda bottle, and even though I am not a doctor (duh), I have to assume that’s not a good thing.

But if you are looking to ride the higher high from a small amount of cannabis, the waterfall bong is consistently the best option that I have seen in all of my years and toking adventures. My uncle is notorious for only consuming cannabis this way because nothing else seems to get him as high as he’d like.

If you have a better consumption method that you think is better than what was included in this article, by all means, include it in the comments section so that others can benefit from your knowledge and experience!
