Whether you are a beginner or you have a long relationship with your bong, choosing the best one can be dreadful. If you are a beginner, then you might start with the size of the bong. Bongs can range from small, handheld pieces to large, elaborate pieces that require two people to use. Larger bongs typically provide a smoother smoking experience because the smoke has more time to cool down before reaching your lungs. However, larger bongs can also be more difficult to clean and store. If you are looking for a bong that is easy to use and transport, a smaller size may be a better choice, especially if you are a beginner.
If you’ve been consuming bongs for a while now, what you need to consider when buying a new one, is the material of the bong. Bongs can be made of glass, acrylic, silicone, or ceramic. Glass is the most common and traditional material for bongs because it is durable, easy to clean, and provides a pure smoking experience. However, glass bongs can be fragile and expensive, so acrylic, silicone and ceramic bongs may be a better option for those who are on a budget or prefer a more sturdy bong.
Since we’re all about supporting all shapes and forms, bongs come in a variety of shapes, sizes, and materials, making it difficult to determine which one is the best for you. But don’t worry, we’ve got your back.
Straight Tube Bongs
If you’re going for a basic and simple bong, a straight-tube bong is your friend. Straight tube bongs provide a simple and effective smoking experience, with a clear and direct hit. However, they may not provide the same level of filtration or cooling as other types of bongs. The shape and design of the bong can impact your smoking experience. But at the end of the day, it all depends on what kind of smoking experience you’re going for.
Beaker bongs are similar to traditional glass bongs but have a wider, flared base that provides stability and allows for larger hits. So, if you are a beginner and have never smoked a bong before, this might not be the best solution for you. The wide base also allows for more water, which helps to filter and cool the smoke as it passes through the bong. Beaker bongs can come in various sizes and designs and are often made from high-quality borosilicate glass.
Recycler bongs are a newer type of bong that are designed to recycle the smoke back through the percolator, providing a smoother and cooler hit. While you’re high, it will make you think that the smoke is just like a mouse running in a wheel. Recycler bongs are often designed with two chambers, one for water and one for smoke, connected by tubes that move the smoke through the percolator and back into the water chamber.
Honeycomb Bong, a.k.a. the holy grail of percolation. The honeycomb percolator features numerous small holes that filter and diffuse the smoke as it passes through, resulting in a smoother and cooler hit. Plus, these types of bongs are the easiest to clean.
There are many different types of bongs, but let’s say you forgot yours and now you want to smoke with your friends. We’ve got you! All you need is a plastic bottle and a bucket of water. Cut the bottom off of a plastic bottle and place it in the water bucket. Fill the bottle with smoking material, light it, and slowly lift the bottle out of the water, allowing the vacuum to fill the bottle with smoke. Once the bottle is full of smoke, remove the bowl and inhale through the mouthpiece. While DIY bongs can be fun to make and use, it is important to keep safety in mind.
Whether you prefer a traditional glass bong or a more modern bong, there are a variety of options available on the market today. Consider the material, size, shape, and design, as well as the type of percolator, when choosing the perfect bong to enhance your smoking experience.
