How To Choose Your Next Glass Bong
How to Choose Your Next Glass Smoking Bong
A decade ago, purchasing a glass bong meant walking to the nearest shop and picking one from the shelf. Although the shop was cozy, it would usually have a few dozen hand-blown bongs at most.
Most shoppers will base their choice on how simple or attractive the item is. Handmade bongs will last many years and would be replaced only if a friend drops it during a severe coughing fit.
Today, there are many options for cannabis products. There are hundreds of design options for consumers to choose from, including many different sizes, shapes, colors, and designs.
There are many options. There are many options, but there is also confusion. What bongs is right for you? What style and features are best for you? Are you more comfortable sticking with a simple bong or a premium bong with new features?
This is Where We Step in.
Our experts have curated a selection of the most high-quality glass bongs available, all at an affordable price that won’t break your budget. Before you start browsing our digital shelves, learn about the steps that you can take in order to find the perfect glass bong.
The Bong Shape Is Important
Before we dive into the technical aspects of bong selection, let’s first discuss the basic aspect of bong design, the shape.
As we mentioned earlier, bongs of unusual shapes might be presented to you.
These are the most well-known, however.
Straight tube: These bongs have a neck, cone, downstem, and chamber. They can be as small as a few inches up to several feet in size.
Beakers: Do you remember the Erlenmeyer flasks in Chem class? These are made to look like them. These usually have a 45-degree downstem. You can choose to have a square or round base.
A bent neck: This neck prevents water from rising up to the neck and into the mouth of the smoker. It’s sort of like a breaker mechanism.
Recyclers: The recyclers are, undoubtedly, the eyes of the bong industry. Before reaching your mouth, the smoke is passed through several glass chambers. Recyclers may also filter the smoke twice with water.
Egg water pipe: This egg water pipe is the newest kid on the block. It has a unique design that sprays water like a percolator. Add a perc and you get one of the most distinctive pulls.
With glass bongs that are as big as you, size matters
It is easy to get the right size. You can choose what you like (pocket-sized or medium-sized), or use numbers that denote the small joint between the bowl and the downstem.
The standard sizes are 10, 14 and 18mm. There are attachments for both male and female sexes.
For bong enthusiasts who know how to use the numbers and the sexes, it is best to leave the details for them. A 14mm bong will pull more air than an 18mm one.
Start small and choose a size that is appropriate for your needs.
Are you a traveler with your bongs? You can choose between a portable or folding bong.
Are you a stay-at-home bong user? There are many options available to you. There are many bongs of enormous size that can be used with multiple percs and have intricate designs.
A series of swirling pipes and gentle swirling curves looks like something out of an Egyptian treasure box.
The cost of a more complex design will be higher. It will also be more difficult to clean.
Once, we saw a 9-foot bong. It is not clear who it was that used it. Andre the giant?
Your lung capacity should also be considered when choosing a bong. The bigger the chamber, the harder it will be for you to empty it in one draw.
Smoke left in the chamber can quickly lose its flavor.
Do You Need These Accessories?
Some bong shoppers are overwhelmed by the technical jargon used by salesmen.
These terms are often used to describe accessories that alter the quality of smoke before inhaling it.
These are just a few.
- Percolators: Also known as Percs, these devices diffuse smoke further after water filtration. The percolator’s design will determine whether it swirls the smoke or uses bubbles to increase diffusion. Inline, honeycomb, and shower heads are some of the most popular percolator designs. Many bongs have multiple percolators, which produces thick, dense, and smooth smoke.
- Multi-Chamber: The smoke will travel through multiple chambers, each one with its own percolator and water tank.
- Recycler: A system that links chambers, where smoke is filtered through multiple loops. Cooler hit
- Fat can bases: These are for tall, straight bongs that run the risk of tipping and crashing. These bases offer stability.
- The bent neck mouthpiece: This is the same as we said earlier. This will prevent water from getting into your mouth, and keep your face safe from the flame.
- Ice catch: This is a mechanism that keeps ice in your neck to cool down the smoke before it reaches you.
Not all glass is the same
We nearly got ripped to pieces when we asked an old-timers about their opinions on imported glass bongs.
They said that the quality of the glass was the most important aspect of the whole experience of smoking from a bong.
Some of our younger friends don’t care much about the process, as long as the glass does the job and is cheap.
Each to their own. If you have the means to purchase American-made Borosilicate glass, we recommend it. This glass is 5% boric acid, and goes through an “Annealing” process to strengthen it.
However, we cannot guarantee the quality of imported glass. It might or may not have been annealed. We have also noticed micro-fractures around bongs made cheaply, which weaken the structure making them more susceptible to damage.
