You can put however much flower you want into a bowl. You can take a couple of small hits, or pack that thing to the rim. The only problem you have is if you want to smoke more than what your bowl can hold.
Joints, on the other hand, require a base amount of weed just to become rollable. Yes, you can roll the pinneriest of pinners, but in general, joints need more weed to be rolled.
One of the best parts of using a bowl, or other types of pipes, is the customization aspects. You can get blown glass in almost any color and shape you can imagine. For a lot of people, picking their pipe of choice is a personal decision. you are purchasing a friend that is going to be with you for some time.
On the other hand, joints are disposable. They don’t exist after they are smoked. Sure, you can get flavored papers and blunt wraps. However, it is not the same as picking out a really nice piece.
After a joint is lit, it is lit. Even if you are not actively smoking it, it is still burning. Sure, bowls will smolder after you take your hit, but it is not as egregious as when smoking a joint. While the difference may seem negligible, these little whisps do add up over time.

When you are smoking a bowl, you are only inhaling the weed itself. Joints are rolled with paper. I don’t know how harmful rolling papers are to the human body, but it surely is one more ingredient going into your lungs. Obviously, there are ways to ingest THC without harming your lungs, but that is not the purpose of this article.
Joints are fairly simple. All you need is weed and papers. With bowls, however, you have access to a wide variety of screens, carrying cases, and cleaning supplies.
If you are a marijuana connoisseur or just a gearhead in general, smoking bowls can scratch that itch. Who else has one of those pillowy drawstring bags?
