What is a weed filter?
A weed filter comes in many forms. Some filters have been made by hand, while others were perfectly invented for smokers to use for each sesh.
The basic paper filter...
Have you ever seen someone roll a joint? The handmade weed filter used is simply cardstock, folded origami-style, in the shape of a W wrapped in a circle. Airflow is increased through this filter because the cardstock that is being used creates a clear passageway for the smoke to travel within the joint paper, and the way it’s folded keeps the joint from collapsing when saliva is introduced.
Furthermore, this type of smoke filtration stops a bit of the unwanted debris that comes from pulling on the joint. Cleaner rip? We’ll take it.
How to make a cannabis smoke filter
To make a cannabis smoke filter by hand, you can do one of 3 things:
- Tear a rectangle shape cardstock and fold in the shape of a W, then wrap it in a circle
- Insert a glass tip filter in the tip of your joint or blunt
- Cut a cigarette filter and insert it into your joint or blunt (This method is not ideal with pure cannabis joints as cigarette filters clog very quickly and can reduce THC intake as they are too tight. This is best used for tobacco heavy spliffs.)
These are clever ways to improve airflow but not very effective for filtering out the harmful tar and resin. Toxins still manage to make their way through the makeshift filter and into your lungs.
MouthPeace is a proper filter for cannabis. Its triple-layer carbon filter protects your lungs and also makes your hits taste better. You feel a “cleaner” high. Is your mouth watering, yet?
Why is it important to filter marijuana smoke?
Whether you’ve been smoking pot for the majority of your life or you’re just starting out, it’s safe to say the health of your lungs is taken into consideration before you begin to inhale weed. So, let’s touch on the importance of using a weed smoke filter.
Have you ever wondered what all the smoke is about once you exhale after a large rip? It can’t all be just THC, although we wish…
The big cloud of smoke that follows a hit of weed includes harmful toxins and carcinogens that could be damaging to your lungs.
Furthermore, did you know that tar is a byproduct of burning ANY plant matter, not only tobacco? So every toke you take is laced with nasty tar that gets on your lips and, ultimately, in your lungs.
Many stoners fear that using a marijuana filter reduces THC intake. This is a myth. Thank you weed gods!
THC and CBD molecules are teeny tiny and they make their way through the filter and cling to your lungs. Toxins and harmful bacteria are larger, so the weed smoke filter catches those particles while letting the much smaller molecules pass through.. Once you use a filter for cannabis, you taste and feel the difference. It has been described as a more energized high. Less sluggish and weighed down.
Plus, you can taste the pure cannabis better. Why spend lots of money on marijuana that smells so amazing only to ruin it by not using a carbon filter?
Another great thing about a MouthPeace bong filter is that you can use it for different variations of smoking marijuana. Joint, blunt, waterpipe, rig, you name it!
To use MouthPeace as a bong filter, you simply insert the MouthPeace filter into the bong mouthpiece. After the first inhale, you’ll see the color of the carbon filter change. And that, my friends, is what isn’t going into your body.
The triple-layer carbon bong filter removes resins, contaminants, and tar from your weed smoke before it has a chance to enter your lungs.
Advantages of using a joint filter
The top advantages of using a joint filter that is built into the pre-roll:

You’ll need to either use MouthPeace Perfectly Sized Pre-Rolls, which are properly sized to fit or make your pre-roll tip slightly larger. You can also wrap a bit of paper around standard joints to get a secure fit in your MouthPeace.
