How To Rip Your Bong Better

Do you want to hit your bong boldly? Hold THC in your lungs longer? Of course you do! I know I do. Plenty of potheads ask me, “Mernahuana how do you inhale so sexily?”

The secret to my marijuana inhaling success is is Joe Pilates.

No he isn’t some Italian pothead I met in Yongesterdam. Or a literary blog device pothead. He’s an actual dude who created Contrology. A physical fitness regime we refer to as the pilates method. Did Joe Pilates inhale? Probably not.

However his fitness regime developed in a British internment camp during WWI is fantastic way to improve your marijuana inhaling because it’s about breathing. I began personal pilates sessions after completing six months of extensive three days a week physiotherapy. Though my left shattered shoulder had improved well beyond doctor expectations, I desired to go further with fitness.

Originally I thought fitness meant less pot smoking. On the contrary. I get a great ganja groove on – then I start my stretching and movement routines. Physiotherapy taught me this. I’d get baked before physiotherapy then have my arm pulled to the point of pain. The physiotherapist at the clinic knew I was marijuana medicated and took full advantage.

I have about 90 percent mobility in my shoulder because of our efforts. With doctor predicting between 65 – 80 percent. They asked how I did it, I told them, marijuana.

Lessening my fibromyalgia or scoliosis pain could have been an ideal goal to set when I commenced pilates in January. Everyone desires less chronic pain, but not less chronic. It’s difficult to set a less pain goal because it’s hard to judge that goal.

Instead my pilates goal was simple, to rip a bong better.

Like the cannabis champion of the world I am!

It’s never the stone, but my lung capacity that hampers me from inhaling all your weed. No one wants an of out-shape cannabis champion like Dusty Rhodes. Potheads demand a five star bong hitter. I’m now fully prepared to take on all comers again without having to resort to the Dusty Finish.

Your body’s ability to take a solid deep inhale is critical to achieving a maximum marijuana high. Therefore a breathing, stretching and strengthening routine, such as pilates, will get you higher. Once you get started with a pilates routine, especially a class with fellow potheads, you and your friends will be amazed at how much more you can inhale in one breath.
