Learn how to pack a bowl. Packing a bowl with weed is done by first breaking up the bud into smaller pieces. Certain stoners prefer to grind their weed beforehand, while others break up the weed with their fingers. Pack the bowl tight, but not too tight, as you will want to leave enough airflow for a good hit. Make sure to put the extra finger hash you may have accumulated while breaking up the bud onto the top of the bowl. Smoke and enjoy The Marijuana Effect.
