What do you think of when you think of a bong? Legal marijuana has created a new market for artists. With the legalization of marijuana, a new industry has begun.
It’s time to shed some light on the bong. This guide is here to help you decide which bong is best for you!
What Is a Bong?
A bong is a water pipe. The dried herb is lit, smoke fills in a water chamber below, then the smoke gets sucked up and inhaled.
The dried herb is packed into a bowl. A bowl will come with your bong but, you can buy others. Once lit, smoke will go down a small glass piece called a downstream. This piece brings your smoke into the water chamber.
Once in the water chamber, the smoke will fill the chamber. The long tube will have a rounded top on it. This top part is where you inhale marijuana smoke.
Bongs have different options to choose from.
Some bongs have a carb hole. This is a hole in the side of the bong that you would cover with your finger. You do this while lighting the herb so you can trap in the smoke. After you have inhaled you can let go and the hole will allow for air to flow through once more.
Bongs are available in a variety of styles, materials, and colours.
Different Types of Bongs You Say?
Different materials sell for different prices. Some bongs are big, some are small. Some are wide and some are tiny.
A bong is often made from glass, ceramic, metal, bamboo, or rubber. Plastic is also used sometimes to make cheap bongs.
Glass and ceramic bongs are the most common types seen. They also are more fragile than other types of bongs.
Glass bongs generally cost more, due to the labour to make them. But, they are also one of the easiest materials to clean.
Ceramic bongs are intricate and beautiful.
The clay used to make ceramic bongs shapes into a variety of designs. Ceramic bongs are fragile making them a piece you would keep at your house, not one you would travel with.
A ceramic bong is hard to see inside making cleaning hard. They also can be very expensive depending on how big a bong you want.
Metal bongs are durable and can last through even the most clumsy of a smoker.
The metal can change the taste of the smoke. But, metal is cheap, cost-wise, and provides a nearly unbreakable bong for many years of use.
It is important to note that metal can also be difficult to clean, due to it being hard to see when it’s dirty.
Plastic is the second most popular material for bongs.
This is due to the fact that plastic is cheap. A plastic bong is good for travel. The only real downside of a plastic bong is that the plastic may affect the taste of the smoke.
The plastic can also be harder to clean since some plastics can absorb the marijuana resin.
