 Learn About Bongs

best bongThe bong, as almost everyone on the planet knows, is the crowning piece for a stoner. For better cooling of the smoke, some of the bongs are equipped with an ice catcher. Bongs have been around for, well, absolutely ages. Handmade pipes and bongs are generally the first thing many people smoke out of in their budding stoner-careers.

Water inside the bong acts as a filter and also cools the smoke. Many use bongs because there are so many different accessories you can attach to enhance the flavors. Bongs are also popular because they come in a variety of colors and unique designs.

People choose bongs as their preferred smoking method because of the cool and unique hit you get when you smoke from them. When you are using a glass bong water pipe for smoking you will be satisfied with the more chambers, longer draw and cooler smoother hit.

Percolators

When the main chamber is broken up into one or more smaller chambers with additional filters, you’ve got yourself a percolator bong. A bong or water pipe percolator is a small sub-chamber within the shaft of a water pipe which allows for interaction between the smoke being produced and water within the water bowl.

The original purpose for the creation of the percolator was to act as an additional chamber to filter the smoke through the water, so as to produce a more refined smoke for inhalation and absorption into the lungs.

As you pull in smoke from your bong, the smoke gets pushed through tiny holes within the secondary water chamber—this is the process of percolating. Depending on the type of percolator, it may not be able to diffuse the smoke.

Glass Bowlswater glass bongs pipes bowls

Glass bowls are usually the most popular paraphernalia because they are so simple, small, and very effective. One of the essentials to look for in a good glass bowl is the thickness of the glass. Cheap bowls crack a lot easier and have a higher potential of breaking because of the nature of the piece and glass used. The bowls also have to fit well in your hand and the carb should be located in a well accessible area.

Pipes

weed pipes

Pipes provide a quick and easy way to enjoy your flowers, and glass models are especially enjoyable.  Just like the typical bongs and dab rigs, glass pipes are also decoratively designed with intent to impress everyone. Glass pipes are probably the most popular type of pipe that people use.

There is a large variety of smoking pipes available on the market. Some pipes even use water, such as the bubbler pipe. The bubbler pipe is a water pipe that is not quite as intense as bong water pipes but still providing H2O that will cool down the smoke before it hits your lungs. Bubbler pipes are great because the water acts as a filter.

Some can find glass pipes easier to handle and clean, as well as they see a glass pipe as a good investment as it rarely breaks. A pipe is usually made of metal or wood and can be a short pipe, called a chillum, or a long pipe like the Gandalf Pipe. Some pipes are even made from glass, they are called steamrollers. A smoking pipe could be a good (small) investment if durability is something you are looking for.

Vaporizers

Dry herb vaporizers have been becoming ever seemingly popular. They are very affordable and allow you to travel in utter discrete. The sheer convenience of a herb vaporizer allows you to toke when you are in need of medication. Many people have come to realize that dry herb vaporizers allow them to save on buds costs as well as benefit from a completely different mental state that typical ingestion methods produce. They enjoy the idea of portability and how the vapor is not damaging to their lungs. Check out our reviews of the best dry herb vaporizers in 2017!
