What is a Bong?

A bong is a filtration device used to smoke cannabis by filtering and cooling the smoke through water. The water helps remove tar and other impurities, providing a smoother, cleaner hit. In addition, bongs amplify the effects of the cannabinoids THC and CBD, providing an enhanced experience compared to traditional smoking methods.

The Different Types of Bongs to Add to Your Stash

  • Straight Tube Bongs: Classic, simple, and easy to clean. These bongs have a straight, cylindrical shape and are perfect for beginners.
  • Beaker Bongs: Featuring a larger, beaker-shaped base, these bongs offer more water capacity to filter your smoke, resulting in smoother hits.
  • Percolator Bongs: Equipped with percolators to diffuse the smoke further, this type of bong adds extra cooling and filtration for an ultra-smooth experience.
  • Recycler Bongs: With multiple chambers and pathways, recycler bongs continuously filter smoke and water, providing a unique, cleaner hit.

Getting to Know Your Bong and What Each Part Does

  • Mouthpiece: The top of the bong, where you place your lips to inhale the filtered smoke.
  • Chamber: The main area where smoke collects after passing through the water.
  • Bowl: The removable section where you pack your cannabis.
  • Downstem: A small tube that connects the bowl to the main chamber, allowing smoke to flow through the water.
  • Percolator: Optional component that adds extra filtration by diffusing the smoke through small holes or slits.
  • Diffuser: An additional feature that creates small bubbles, further filtering and cooling the smoke.

Preparing Your Bong for a Smoke Sesh

  1. Fill the bong’s base with enough water to submerge the end of the downstem fully.
  2. Grind your cannabis and pack it lightly into the bowl.
  3. Attach the bowl to the downstem.
  4. Hold your bong securely, place your lips on the mouthpiece and light your cannabis.
  5. Inhale slowly while lighting the cannabis, allowing the chamber to fill with smoke.
  6. Remove the bowl and take a smooth, steady hit.
