Clean, Healthy, and Pure: Using Water Bubbler Attachments
In Cypress Hill’s iconic track “Hits From The Bong“, the great B Real implores the listener to “put the blunt down just for a second. Don’t get me wrong it’s not a new method.” He then goes on to extoll the greatness of a bong (which truly can’t be denied). But the track begins with a sound that all of us can recognize immediately, the bubbling of water in glass, something I hear and immediately think health.
The great thing about today’s marijuana culture is that there are plenty of options for you when it comes to inhaling your herbs. In the category of “Traditional Methods”, we have pipes and steamrollers, which are not very healthy. Not only are your lungs mere inches away from hot flame, you’re also gonna inevitably inhale some herbs, which is AWFUL. Then the bong came along with its water filtration and ice-catching properties. All of the sudden the issues with harsh, heavy, hot smoke were no longer. People with sensitive lungs (like myself) could enjoy the smoking of herbs in a cleaner, healthier, and purer way.
Flash forward to today, where vaporizers are truly leading the way in new intake methods. Vaporization is without a doubt the cleanest way to inhale your herbs. No flame means no carbon means practically zero carcinogens. The temperature of the air went from thousands of degrees (with a flame) to hundreds of degrees. However, this is still not perfect. I’ll notice my throat getting dried out pretty quickly if I want to get big, thick clouds of vapor.
The best vaporizer companies are realizing the need that some of us have and responding quite appropriately, thanks to the advancement of vaporizer water bubbler attachments.
The Aquamizer – Various Pen Vapes (Modular)
I’ve recently gotten more into vaping with oils, thanks to my iTaste VV vaporizer (the Aquamizer. Out of the box, you get one oil attachment and the bubbler shown above. It retails at a very affordable $69.99, and thanks to its modular nature, you can use it on most pen-style vaporizers. This one only uses a little bit of water, and that’s all it needs to cool the vapor down to nothing. The first time I used it I didn’t actually notice any oil vapor entering my lungs. I thought I was doing something wrong. Then I breathed out and WHOOMPH, a giant cloud of vapor came out, and I had to sit down for a bit! Pro Tip: Toss the Aquamizer in the freezer for 5 minutes for an even cooler experience!
The VaporBlunt 2.0 Hydrotube attaches to, you guessed it, the VaporBlunt 2.0 Vaporizer. Unlike the Aquamizer, this bubbler will only work with the VaporBlunt. It’s quite solid and has a great percolation system. I also like the longer vapor path that this attachment offers. Unfortunately, the VaporBlunt isn’t really that great of a vaporizer, but it is portable and offers a variable temperature setting, which is nice! The Hydrotube is also a bit pricey at $179.99, which is nuts considering the VaporBlunt 2.0 itself is around the same price.
That’s right, this is the VapeXhale HydrAtube, not the HydrOtube like the VaporBlunt 2.0 offers. The Hydratube attaches to the VapeXhale Cloud Evo Vaporizer. I’m a huge fan of the Cloud Evo. It’s a handheld desktop vape (meaning it has a power cord) that totally kicks ass in the power department. It also has the best percolation/filtering system out of all 3 bubblers reviewed on this page. At $250, it’ll put quite a dent in your wallet, but if you’re the kind of elite vaporist that owns a VapeXhale Cloud Evo, that’s no problem for you.
