Things you can't afford not to know about bongs
What's a bong?
A bong is a device used to smoke weed. It features one or more reservoirs that are partially filled with water. There is a stem and bowl that goes into the reservoir the end of which sits under the water. You suck on the top of the bong whilst lighting the bowl and draw smoke into the reservoir whilst holding your finger over a hole that sits just above the water line. When the reservoir is full of smoke you stop exhale and then remove your finger from the hole and inhale all the smoke.
How does a Bong work?
The bong contains a bowl, carb, downstem, base, and tube. First, you have to put water in the bong. Then, you load your tobacco or herbs into the bowl. You can grind up your herb with a grinder, so you can easily dose your herb in the bowl. Please make sure to insert a screen in the bowl before filling it up with herbs to prevent small pieces of herbs from falling through. Now you’re ready to light up the bowl and start inhaling the smoke. The smoke will enter the water and be filtered, so you’ll be able to take a smooth hit.
How do you keep your bong clean?
After smoking your bong, it’s best to pour the water out of the chamber to prevent bacteria growth. Next to that, it’s essential to clean your bong thoroughly once every month. When you use your bong daily, it may be necessary to clean it more often.
If you want to clean your bong thoroughly, it’s best to use some isopropyl alcohol. When you have difficult stains in your bong, you can add some coarse sea salt to the isopropyl alcohol. After this mixture has soaked for some time, you have to rinse your bong correctly and dry it.
After this process, your bong will be ready to be used again!
Of course, you don’t have to clean your bong like this after every smoking session. If you want to store your bong, you can put it in a container to keep the smell away.
Where do I buy a bong?
There are so many places to buy a bong out there, probably in your local community as well as online. It’s probably best to start by thinking about how you’ll use it, how often, and what your ideal price point is.
If you’re only going to use it every now and then, and it will always stay in one place, it may not be something that you want to spend a ton of money on. Plenty of mini bongs sit in the under $40 range, and they’ll certainly work for you. There’s even plenty of pieces out there that are pieces of absolute art that can cost thousands of dollars.
I really like a minimalist look with great function that gives a super smooth, full hit (that’s why you’re going with a bong in the first place instead of a joint).
