Your bong most likely contains more bacteria than a toilet seat.

According to a new research, bongs, pipes, and joints contain more germs than toilet seats and other unpleasant products used on a regular basis.

Studies that count the thousands of germs found in various items never fail to pique our interest. These are usually unanticipated objects that we come into contact with numerous times a day, such as phones, refrigerator handles, and, allegedly, marijuana pipes.

Cannabis pipes, vapes, and joints, according to a research done by Moose Labs in Los Angeles, contain large numbers of germs owing to the fact that they are shared among friends. According to the research, it's difficult to locate other objects that have the same amount of bacteria as these gadgets. Cannabis pipes, in fact, contain "almost one and a half times more germs than a public toilet seat."

"It's simply extremely terrifying," Moose Labs co-founder Jay Rush remarked. "I almost feel awful informing people, but would you rather be uneducated and blissfully unaware or informed and upset?"

According to the research, although sharing a pipe or joint with a big group of friends is unlikely to result in death, it is possible to get ailments such as sore throat and diarrhea. By just sharing your joint or taking a puff from your pipe, one individual with a virus might infect others.

Moose Labs creates mouthpieces for a range of bongs, pipes, bowls, and vapes that protect you from pathogens while also decreasing some of the bad effects of smoking, such as tar, resins, and toxins.

To avoid germs, the business suggests washing your hands before and after smoking, as well as cleaning the bong with boiling water and wiping it dry after each usage. If you're going to smoke with a big group of people, bring a mouthpiece or some sanitary wipes with you to reduce your bacteria exposure.

You may seem snobby in front of your pals, but you'll be there to say "I told you so" while they're puking and feeling miserable.
