WHY SHOULD I USE A BUBBLER?
Glass bubblers have become increasingly popular in recent years. But what exactly is a weed bubbler, and why would you want to use one?
Portable - Most water bubblers are small enough to fit in any bag, purse, or backpack; because most are made of one solid piece of glass, there are no removable parts to leave behind at your friend's house.
Smooth, filtered hits-Similar to a bong, the water in the lower chamber bubbles and filters tar, ash, and other toxins from the water.
Handheld - ideal for passing around a campfire
Beautiful - Water bubblers, like pipes, come in a variety of colorful and creative designs, so you're sure to find one that matches your personal style.
What is the difference between a bubbler and a bong?
Every bubbler is a glass bong; however, not every bong is a bubbler. This can even be confusing to the average smoker, so let's clarify. A bubbler works very similarly to a glass bong, but is usually much smaller and is a good choice if you want to be discreet on the go. While there are exceptions to every rule, bubblers are comparable in style to handheld bongs, which are larger, more complex in design, and more customizable overall. Because bongs can be personalized with pipes, bowls, stems, and other smoking accessories, this may make them more expensive and more suitable for smoking at home. While glass bongs are not as customizable, they are more durable, more discreet, and easier to handle given their compact shape. And most importantly, does a bubbling bong strike differently than a pipe? Since bubbling bongs use a water chamber for filtration, as opposed to high-end bongs that can have multiple honeycomb percolators, the hits you get from bubbling bongs aren't usually as smooth as smoking hookah, but they're also not as harsh as dry tobacco. However, with a percolator bubbler, you get the best of both worlds
Bubblers Pros: More discreet, more durable, easier to handle, and cheaper than a standard bong
Bongs Pros: Longer smoking time, stronger height, easier to clean, more variety, and customizable
How to clean a bubbler
Water bubblers can be more difficult to clean than bongs due to their one-piece design and smaller inner cavity. We recommend that you use the following steps to clean your water bong frequently
- Pour dirty water out of the pipe and wash away the resin pieces.
- Rinse the bong thoroughly with hot water
- Add a mixture of isopropyl alcohol (91-99%) and salt (laxative or sea salt) to the main chamber of the bubbler. The ratio of alcohol to salt is 2:1. You can add a splash of distilled white vinegar, which will help dissolve the resin faster.
- Plug the opening with a cotton ball to prevent mess
- Shake it like a polaroid photo. You know what we mean.
- Rinse the tube thoroughly with hot water a few times until you no longer smell rubbing alcohol.
