Maybe your bong bowl rolled under the sofa and was never discovered, or maybe your go-to bowl simply won't clean up no matter how much alcohol and scrubbing you do. A new bowl will not only assist provide you the freshest tasting bong rips with ideal airflow compared to a dirty and clogged bowl piece, but it will also help elevate a dull water pipe by adding a touch of your individuality. Choosing a nice bong bowl that suits your style and fits your water pipe can be difficult because there are so many various varieties of bong bowls in all shapes, sizes, materials, and colors. This article delves into the most common varieties of bong bowls on the market, as well as the features to look for to ensure a great match.


Before diving into the various sorts of bowl parts, it's important to understand what bong bowls are and what they perform. Any water pipe arrangement would be incomplete without a bowl component, often known as a bong bowl or a slide. Glass bong bowls are detachable parts that fit into the joint at the top of the downstem of a bong. Bong bowls retain your ground dry herb or other smoking material, making it simple to fire. There's no avoiding it. For your water bong to operate correctly, you'll need a bowl component that fits.

A cannabis enthusiast will light the dried herb within the bong bowl and inhale through the mouthpiece to draw the smoke down the downstem and through the percolators and water. Before being ingested, the water can aerate, chill, and filter out big pollutants like hot ash from the smoke. It's why stoners prefer a bong pull over a joint or pipe since it's smoother and more pleasant on the throat and lungs. Once the smoke has built up in the bong chamber, the glass or metal bowl is removed to allow complete airflow through the water pipe, allowing the chamber to be cleaned fast and simply.


When it comes to selecting the ideal bong bowls for your glassware, it's important to first comprehend the many varieties of bong bowls accessible. Don't let any of this deter you; it's a basic concept that every bong owner should understand because everyone needs a new sliding bowl at some time. These are the important factors to keep an eye on while researching choices and making a final purchase to ensure the bowl piece you pick is the correct match:

Dimensions of the joints

The key difference between types of bowl parts is joint size, which can help you narrow down your alternatives right away. If you utilize the incorrect joint size, your bong bowl will be worthless, and you'll have to spend additional money on a bong adaptor (more on that in a bit). The joint size of the bowl must match the joint size of the bong with which it will be utilized. Check to check whether this information for the water pipe you have is available online so you can be sure you're getting the appropriate one. Although 14mm and 18mm joints are the most popular, some water bongs contain 10mm joints. This measurement relates to the joint's diameter. You're in luck if you stumble upon a one-of-a-kind bong bowl that you can't get out of your brain but it's the wrong joint size. Pick up a bong adapter, which will allow you to use any style of bong slide or accessory with your water pipe, regardless of joint size!

Type of joint

In addition to joint size, the type of joint on your bong should be considered. Male and female-style bowls and bongs are available. In contrast to the joint size, which must be the same, the joint type must be the polar opposite in order to fit well. The majority of glassware has a female joint that may be used with a male bowl. Some bongs, however, contain a male joint that requires a female bowl. A female bowl will sit on top of a male joint, whereas a male bong component will sit within a female joint. Before choosing a bowl, make sure to verify the size and kind of joint on your bong.

The bowl's depth

Do you frequently use your bong with pals but despise having to empty and repack the bowl? The amount of dry herb a bowl can hold is determined by the bowl's size and depth. Just because a huge bowl appears to have a large bong bowl on the exterior doesn't imply it actually does (it's frequently just thick glass). If you usually smoke with your stoner pals, go for a deep bowl or double bowl to cut down on the amount of times you have to repack. A typical sized bong bowl may suffice if you like solo smoking sessions. You'll have to hold the bowl in person or rely on internet evaluations to find out the depth. It's difficult to take excellent shots of glass, which may be deceiving at times.

Material for bong bowls

Slides, like bongs, can be fashioned of a number of materials, each with its own set of advantages and disadvantages. Bong bowls come in a variety of materials, including glass, metal, and silicone.

By far the most popular material used to build bowls is heat-safe borosilicate glass. Glass bong bowls are tasteless, allowing you to experience the pure cannabis flavor while also being easy to clean. However, they are the most easily broken and require additional caution while transporting. Glass herb bowls are the gold standard, and you'll find the most variations in this material.

Another alternative is metal bowls made of stainless steel or heavy-duty brass. These ultra-durable bong bowls are both portable and easy to clean. The main disadvantage is that the metal on the exterior can become quite hot, making it difficult to remove if there isn't a pull tab.

Silicone- One of the most flexible materials on our list, high-quality heat-resistant silicone is safe for smoking accessories. Silicone is practically impenetrable (you can even drive a car over it, but we don't encourage it), lightweight, and inexpensive. Silicone bowls come in a variety of colors, styles, and designs, and they're occasionally used to preserve glass bowls and make them last longer. For stoners who want to smoke on the move, this is the perfect alternative.

Wood- While it's quite uncommon, some potheads enjoy the classic aesthetic of wood. Although most wood bowls have a glass or metal connection, you may discover those that are fully composed of hardwood.

Ceramic bowls, like wood bowls, are uncommon, but they may give your bong a unique flair. There are even some ceramic bongs available! Ceramic does not contribute taste to your hits, is simple to clean, and can withstand several heating and cooling cycles. This old substance is much better than glass in absorbing and dissipating heat. It's also more durable than glass, but it's also heavier and always opaque if that's the effect you're aiming for.

Design and style

Once you've nailed down the joint size and type, as well as your preferred material, it's time to get creative with your style and design! This is a personal preference, but be sure that whichever bong bowl you select is simple to ignite and remove. To put it another way, you don't want to have to maneuver around huge heart accents or glass elephant ears, no matter how charming they are. The alternatives are unlimited, so select a highly fun and original design. From custom bong slides in the style of your favorite marine monster to glass bowls inspired by your favorite stoner TV series, the options are endless.
