How to Use a Bong Properly: The Fundamentals
In 36 of the 50 states, medical marijuana is currently legal. As it becomes increasingly legal, an increasing number of individuals are electing to test it out for the first time.

A novice may find it intimidating to smoke marijuana since there are so many different methods to do it.

Using a bong is a terrific place to start, but if you don't know how to use one, don't worry. It's not nearly as difficult as it seems, and the experience is unlike any other.

Continue reading for a step-by-step explanation of how a bong works.

What Is a Bong and How Does It Work?

A bong is similar to a glass pipe, but it utilises water to chill and filter the smoke, resulting in a smoother, better-tasting smoke.

Smoke is drawn into the water chamber, and as it passes through, the water removes particles like tar and ash from the smoke while also chilling it down.

As a result, smoking a bong may be one of the healthiest methods to consume marijuana, while also providing a more relaxing experience for your lungs, which is one of the bong's main advantages.

Step 1: Get Your Bong Ready

To begin, fill your bong's chamber with water. The water is normally poured via the mouthpiece, which is a big aperture towards the top of the bong.

You simply need to add enough water to completely immerse the downstem. Make careful you don't add too much or the marijuana will become moist.

Step 2: Grind the herb and pack it

It's now time to grind and pack the marijuana. While there are many various kinds of bongs available online with a variety of bells and whistles, this step remains constant.

Using a grinder to do so effectively is the best option. Place the marijuana in the teeth-filled section of the grinder.

Close it and spin it back and forth until you get a smooth feeling.

Carefully remove a pinch of marijuana from your grinder and put it in the bowl of your bong. Use anything flat, like the end of a lighter, to softly press it down, but don't pack it too firmly or you'll have trouble extracting it afterwards.

Continue to fill the bowl until it is completely filled, then set it in the downstem.

Step 3: Light a match and take a deep breath.

It's now time to start using a bong to smoke your marijuana. Place your lips on the mouthpiece and begin inhaling while lighting a corner of the bowl.

In the water room, you'll see and hear bubbles. You don't need to pull too hard; just keep it smooth and steady.

Smoke will move from the bowl to the water chamber and up if your bong is clear. Remove the bowl from the bong when the chamber is full with smoke and inhale the smoke.

When you take the bowl out while inhaling, the smoke is forced up into your lungs, providing you a stronger dose than you would get with a glass pipe.
