Let’s talk about bongs because let’s face it, they hit differently. Most stoners have at least one memorable bong story where a toke sent them into oblivion.  

When it comes to smoking weed, bongs deserve their own category. Just like joints, blunts, pipes, and vapes, bongs have a loyal fan base of their own.

Bongs are a right of passage for many weed smokers and so is accidentally breaking a bong. It’s bound to happen eventually! Whether you’re new to bongs or a seasoned toker — Bud Supply in Lethbridge has a bong for every budget, so come on by and check them out.

What Are Bongs?

A bong is a cylindrical-shaped tube with a round or triangular water reservoir at the base of the cylinder and a mouthpiece at the top. They’re typically made of glass, plastic, or silicone. 

They can also be called water pipes, similar to hookahs, but are much larger than a typical pipe. 

Smoking bongs in Lethbridge is popular because of the unique effect that water has on the toke. Unlike smoking a joint, blunt, or vape, a hit from the bong tends to be smoother… and potentially stronger too!

How Do Bongs Work?

At the top of the cylinder is a mouthpiece and at the bottom, attached to the water reservoir is a bowl that connects to a downstem. 

With weed you have busted up using a weed grinder, you can pack your bowl with the flower and sprinkle some kief on top that was collected by your grinder. 

As you use a lighter to burn the weed in the bowl, you slowly start to inhale from the mouthpiece. If done properly, as you inhale, water will begin bubbling in the reservoir and smoke will begin to rise up the chamber.

Lastly, you pull the bowl out of the downstem, inhale deeply and clear the chamber.

What Does The Water In The Bong Do?

As you inhale, the smoke is pulled through the downstem and into the water reservoir. Smoke will drag up through the water generating bubbles and cooling down the smoke. 

Some bongs have ice catches in the chamber; an ice catch is exactly what it sounds like. It’s an add-on accessory for your bong, so the smoke passes three or four ice cubes to create an icy-smooth toke. 

What Should I Consider Before Buying A Bong In Lethbridge 

There are three main things to consider before buying a bong if you’re purchasing one in Lethbridge: 


Because size does matter. If you want a personal piece for the occasional rip (toke) then something around 8” tall will suffice. But if you’re looking for a statement piece to impress your friends then go big with a 16” piece… or go home.


Glass, silicone, and plastic bongs are the most common, however, glass is the best option. Glass can handle heat and is the safest for smoking out of. If you see “Borosilicate glass” then you know you’ve got a high-standard product.
