We understand. You want to get down and dirty right from the start and hit the bong like Dave in Half Baked. But that’s how newbies go wrong and end up coughing their head off.

Nobody wants to look like a novice. Lucky for you, there are a few ways to reduce coughing and but still get you plenty high.
