Also a few poundshops and wilkos do 3 pack big boxes of bull brand filters for a quid ! if you ever rolll up with a roach cus you've run out of filters, people tend to get a cough or mucus after having several like this. Filters all the way.

I smoke neat, really enjoy the taste of my herb and don't fnd it to be harsh on my throat at all. However I do get concerned about the health effetcs of smoke in general, would you guys reccommend a filter for someone like me?

might as well get some use out of em.
i was also under the impression that it detracts from weedage.
i think norml did tests with filters a couple of years ago.

Like the waterpipes, the cigarette filter also performed worse than the unfiltered joint, by about 30%. Researchers speculate this is because cannabinoids are exceptionally sticky and adhere to other solids. Hence, any filtration system that picks up particulates is likely also to screen out cannabinoids.
Disappointingly, waterpipes performed uniformly worse than the unfiltered joint. The least bad waterpipe, the bong, produced 30% more tar per cannabinoids than the unfiltered joint. Ironically, the pipe with the electric mixer scored by far the worst of any device. This suggests that water filtration is actually counterproductive, apparently because water tends to absorb THC more readily than other, noxious tars.

E2A - I personally don't use filters, mainly as being a tobacco smoker for that long, it makes a joint seem weak and unsatisfying... never tried filtering a neatie before, may have a go as I am trying to kick the baccy and change my smoking habits wholesale... but I can't see me taking to it. I think my original plan of just smoking less is preferable!
