White v. Yellow smoke

    So, for 4/20 I purchased a small acrylic bong that hits very well, much better than my old one. It gives great hits, however I've noticed something.

    If I fill it enough with smoke, it brings this cool, white smoke that hits well. However, if I really try to get a HUGE hit, the smoke turns a slightly creamy, yellow-tinted color and it makes me cough a lot worse.

    My question here is, what causes the smoke to turn slightly yellow? Is it from just smoking mids and not anything better, accidentally smoking stems (I don't normally take out but the biggest stems), or is it from another factor? Thanks in advance for any help :jointsmile:

    every weed i have ever smoked be it really bad or really good has had a white grey type smoke. if it was yellow i wouldnt smoke it i would be afraid it was mustard gas. nothing good gives off yellow smoke

    You took the words right out of my mouth! I was going to use the mustard gas joke lol.

    Seirously - yellow smoke? White/grey/bluey smoke is the only smoke i breathe.

    It's not like extremely yellow here, I mean it's slightly tinted yellow (off-white) when I really try and take a huge hit.

    The thicker the smoke, the more yellow it's gonna be. I can't explain it, but it happens often to me, and I don't think you'll get mustard gas poisoning from smoking yellow herb smoke. If that was so, then people would actually start dying from smoking herb.

    Peace :hippy:

    Same thing happens to me..I'm pretty sure it's either all the smoke tinting it or some of the smoke turning stale...

    Umm..I guess I'm fucked then lol, because unless I'm smoking a joint/blunt or glass pipe I always make sure the smoke gets thick and yellow. Every time I smoke the g-bong or my bong I made the smoke always gets thick and yellow. Not like solid yellow, but yellowish/whitish. We cough because all that smoke is inhaled at once.. It means you're gonna get fucked up, simple as that :p.

    edit: I don't know if the smoke is yellow without there even being a build up. But if you have a lot of smoke and it's yellow I don't think it means it's stale because my bud does that and I never buy stale/shitty weed.

    Lol just gave me an idea. I'm gonna take a pic of when the g-bong is filled with smoke :).

    I've gotten many many yellow hits in my life. The first time I saw one was from a GB. I've gotten it soo many times and the hits takes like ass, I figure this was because there was too much stem inside the bowl that I'd packed. There isn't much worse than taking the yellow hits which make me wanna puke, and they are so harsh on your throat a terrible burnt taste linger in your mouth ;(

    I followed some one's advice to cool the smoke. Although you still feel some heat from yellow hits, it's more like warmth rather than burn lol. Still makes me cough bad though. And I just hit the g-bong and made the vid but you won't believe what happened. It didn't get the part when I actually took the hit. I mean the video file is there but it has 0 bytes and it was an error when it tried to open it...wtf! I'll just make another vid when I take a hit from the g-bong and put it in with this one lol. Don't worry, my next hit will be just as good as the one I just had if not better.

    Im almost 100% sure that any "big" hit, and I mean a BIG hit, turns yellow. Bongs or G-bongs are the best place to see it. My reasoning is that I havew a buddy who always used to make me take fat rips. it was when iw as younger. Anyway we would have some real good weed. And if still took a big hit it just turned cream yellow

    So I'm pretty sure a yell smoke cloud ( at least while still in the bong, not while exhaling) If its yellow thats good.

    its cuase its thicker smoke so the tar in the smoke is closer together thats why it is yellow its just a HUGE hit like you said
