What is a bong?

Bong is one of the most popular ways to smoke your herbs. It is a waterpipe, that allows you to smoke pure herb and to filter the smoke with simple water. Furthermore using a bong allows your smoke to cool down, and there are even ice bongs for those who want it extra cool.

Smoking bongs come in all shapes and sizes, with many different structures and creative approaches to smoke your herb. Furthermore, the material bongs are made from can be almost anything – from wood and metal to plastic and the most popular of all – glass. The sizing of the bong (and the bowl) determines the size of the hit that you can have with this bong and this is probably the most important question to ask when you are choosing your bong.

Is smoking a bong different from smoking a joint?

Many cannabis enthusiasts agree a simple water bong is a least wasteful and most healthy way to smoke your herbs (before vaporizers were invented!). Furthermore, you don’t need to add tobacco to your herb mix – which makes smoking a bong a more clean and pure smoking experience.

Joint is an easier way of consuming cannabis, especially if you are outdoors – furthermore, it’s a more discrete way of smoking cannabis in a public setting. But bongs waste your herbs less and it makes it easier to measure your personal hit.

Lastly, smoking a bong has a different way you get high (in a sense) – while smoking a joint it is more common to get high gradually, while a bong hit can feel more like an actual kick.

A bong hit refers to the actual act of smoking a bong.

Do you need to clean your bong?

Yes, but not after every use.

This makes the smoking experience fresh again.

What is a smoking pipe?

A smoking pipe is a special tool that can be used to smoke cannabis (or tobacco) in a dry method.

By grinding your weed, you make sure that it will burn more evenly and you will not waste any of it.
