Did you know that bongs have been around for centuries? The name has changed, but the purpose and method remain the same. In eastern parts of the world, many people used bamboo bongs to smoke tobacco, hashish, and hemp.
Bongs come in all shapes and sizes that pack a potent punch. They can be an unforgettable part of your journey with a toke that sends you into a whole new world. Bongs have stood the test of time and remain the preferred method for many enthusiasts today.
At Harvest Bud Supply, we pride ourselves on offering affordable cannabis products. So, if you’re looking for a bong in Taber, stop by and say ‘high’!
What are Bongs?
Bongs, sometimes called water pipes, have cylindrical tubes (known as chambers) with a water reservoir at the bottom and a mouthpiece at the top. They’re made of glass, plastic, or silicone and serve different purposes.
Two things separate bongs from other smoking methods:
- The water reservoir.
- The size of the bong.
A water reservoir filters and cools the smoke as you draw it up the chamber toward your mouth, making the toke smoother. Bubblers, another type of piece, use water for the same reason. However, bongs are much bigger than bubblers, mixing more oxygen into the smoke and making it gentler on your throat.
Purchasing a bong can be a significant milestone for people new to cannabis, often coupled with tales of accidentally breaking one. It's almost a rite of passage!
Are Bongs Better Than Joints?
The biggest advantage of bongs is that you can experience a stronger high with less weed.
When you smoke a bong, you inhale all the smoke at once. It travels deeper into your lungs, delivering the cannabinoids to your bloodstream more effectively than the upper part of your lungs.
Bongs can also save you money. For example, if you normally use 0.5 grams of weed in one joint, a 0.2-gram bong hit will give you the same experience.
Understanding How Bongs Work
As mentioned above, a bong is a cylindrical tube with a mouthpiece on top and a round base at the bottom filled with water. Coming out of the base is a downstem (the piece that connects the bowl to the bong’s main chamber) with a removable bowl.
To smoke weed with a bong, you first need to pack the bowl with dried flower that you’ve ground with a weed grinder and light it with a lighter. As you inhale from the mouthpiece, the smoke passes through water, bubbling in the reservoir and rising through the chamber. Finally, remove the bowl, inhale deeply, and clear the chamber.
As you clear the chamber, the water should still be bubbling. If it doesn’t bubble, you’ll get a harsh, dry toke instead of a smooth one. Some bongs even include ice catches, allowing the smoke to pass through ice cubes, delivering an icy-smooth toke.
