5 Bong Mouthpieces to Defeat Cup Cough

Cup cough: it’s a thing. From a germ perspective, sharing a bong is about the same as swapping spit. So it’s no surprise that you can catch a cold, flu, or any other number of viruses from taking rips from a communal bong.

If want to avoid catching cup cough (but not pass your the next smoke sesh), you can always get yourself one of any number of cannabis bong mouthpieces people have come up with. This is still a developing market, so there’s not tons of selection (at least not compared to bongs in general) but you can get it’ll grow as cannabis acceptable grows here and above the border.

Here are some of your choices as of 2018:

1. Silicone Mouthpiece

Moose Labs has introduced a number of cannabis supplies into the world, including the world-famous Mouthpeace – probably among the most well-known of cannabis bong mouthpieces. This baby comes in three sizes, with a universal design that fits most bongs, pipes, and vapes out there. The silicone design makes it easy to wash (just toss it in the dishwasher) for a germ-free smoking experience.

2. Angled Mouthpiece

If you love to rip a colossally-tall bong that teeters when you touch it, the angled mouthpiece is for you. This shape solves the problem of building a piece too tall to hit without the threat of tipping your stack over too far. It also does a good job of extending the pipe for a cooler puff of smoke.

3. Spiral Mouthpiece

This one’s just cool. There are a few spiral-style mouthpieces out there, like the Helix, with holes that make the smoke spiral in chamber. Even your sober friend should be able to appreciate the effect, as far as I’m concerned. As a bonus, it’s supposed to slow the burn.

4. KashIt

The Kashit is a glass mouthpiece designed to cool your smoke waaaaay down before it hits your lungs (as seen in this cheesy video demonstration.) I love the concept of this thing, because heat is my only complaint about pipes and the reason I prefer vaping. Smart idea and easy execution. Unfortunately, it’s become pretty hard to find this thing.

5. Gas Mask

Excessive? Absolutely. Awesome? Well, I think that depends on how you feel about rave goggles and other goofy stoner headgear. Stoners have been piping their hits to gas masks since WW1, but Moose Labs cannabis supplies wizards responsible for the Mouthpeace, have now created a silicone version made especially for smoking pot. It’s ridiculous and I don’t like it, but it exists, and I’d be wrong not to mention it in a post about mouthpieces.

What’s Your Favorite Mouthpiece?

A boring old silicone mouthpiece to keep the glass mouthpiece of my vape clean is good enough for me. I’d try the KashIt if given the opportunity, and I’ll admit I’d shell out for the spiral helix if I could afford it. Thoughts?

10 Things Women Can’t Leave Without In Their Handbag

For most women, foreseeing what we need inside our handbag every day is unthinkable. With unplanned dates and lunch gatherings after work, we’re all driving a pressed schedule. Since life can be so flighty, there are a couple of things that we believe that important to have especially if anything comes up on a hectic day.


Here are the top 10 essentials women should bring every day. From beauty care products to mints, we’ve incorporated the fundamentals that are useful to have close by for any circumstance that may emerge.

How Not to Be Hurt When Using Dating Apps


If you’re of a certain age, you may remember an era when people actually placed ads in the paper in order to find prospective partners. Now, of course, that is ancient history as online dating continues to be a cultural force. Millions of people use dating apps and online sites, but like most technological breakthroughs, the numbers skew young: 30% of Americans 18-29 years currently engage in online dating.

It can be very easy to feel hurt and rejected when using dating apps. Because there is no genuine interaction (in the early stages), many people have no problem simply ceasing communication without explanation. You can treat people badly with no repercussions, a problem with virtually every aspect of the internet. If you are thinking about entering into the world of online dating, here are some suggestions that can help:

Be Prepared for Rejection…A Lot of It

Much of online dating connections revolve around looks, particularly for men seeking partners. Thus, in most cases, this is all users initially have to go on, so the most attractive people get the most messages. Of course, there is far more to a connection than just looks, but that only becomes apparent when you interact, particularly in person. When you put your profile up, don’t be surprised if you get few responses; that is completely normal. It’s very important to have realistic expectations.

Don’t Take Rejection Personally

Many online dating experiences end after the first face-to-face. If someone goes silent on you following a date, don’t take that rejection personally. You cannot truly know a person from such limited contact, so they are rejecting you on the basis of a very slim appraisal of who you are. Ask your friends: we bet you will find that many longtime couples initially had no interest at all in each other. Their attraction blossomed over time as they got to know one another through regular interaction.

If You Feel Vulnerable, Stay Away

Just ended a relationship? It can be tempting to “jump right back into the saddle,” but this is actually bad timing. Chances are you already feel very hurt and vulnerable, so online dating rejection is likely to hit you twice as hard.

When is a TV Too Big?

TVs are getting bigger and bigger. Screen sizes that once seemed like the sort of thing you would only find in a sports bar are now turning up in suburban living rooms. Bigger is better is the mantra for many products these days, and the increasingly low price of televisions has resulted in bigger sizes becoming more affordable. The depth and clarity of 4K also mean that these 60-90” behemoths are still capable of displaying a very high-quality image.

But when is big simply too big? One complaint about television heard since the dawn of the medium is that it is the bastion of low-brow entertainment. Anyone who feels that way is probably not that comfortable with having a TV at all, let alone one that would dominate their living room.

Men tend to love large televisions more than women. Perhaps because sports and action movies are more accommodating to that bigger display, while romantic comedies seem more intimate on a screen that does not take up half of the living room wall. Let’s face it, though, the truth is probably simple: men love their gadgets and need to impress their friends, so they always buy into bigger is better.

From a scientific perspective, you really ought to be at least 9 feet back from a 60-inch screen (here’s a handy calculator that will provide the right distance for your TV and viewing area) to get the optimal effect. However, anything above that size and you will likely drive your interior decorator over the brink. Think about it: how would you create a lovely living environment in a room dominated by a giant black rectangle? You can always compromise and have a separate TV room that you keep out of view from strangers, like some oddball relative.

We suspect this argument won’t be settled anytime soon and might get even stranger when holographic displays become the new norm.
