Best Bongs

best bong

The bong, as almost everyone on the planet knows, is the crowning piece for a stoner. For better cooling of the smoke, some of the best 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. Cool 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. They also enjoy the quality borosilicate glass that can withstand small drops and tips leaving you to wonder why is glass used for smoking cannabis.

When you are using a glass bong for smoking you will be satisfied with the more chambers, longer draw and cooler smoother hit.

How percolators will give you the best rip

Let’s talk about the interesting effects of a percolator. Before we go into the details, here are the basics: A water pipe percolator can be considered as a small additional chamber that is placed within the shaft of the pipe/bong.

The primary function of this percolator is to provide a cooling effect on the smoke through smoke-water interaction. This process provides heat exchange through dissolution and hence minimizes health hazards as well as enhances the experience.

Percolators are available in multiple forms such as pedestal, dome and tree. The purpose of all percolators is to provide another layer of filtering for the smoke – through water.

Bongs use the diffuse effect, which works by utilizing the difference between the pressure at the bottom and the top outlets. The difference in pressure at the outlet is due to the suction created with the user’s lungs. The fluid at the inlet, which is a mixture of smoke vapor and water, begins to drift towards the bottom of the water, where the pressure of the water causes the mixture to break into small air bubbles.

The bubbles then flow through the water and raise at the outlet. This cools down the smoke as well as purifies it by entrapping the bad carcinogens in h20 particles. In this video, Smoke Cartel illustrates the tree percolator through a beaker water bong:

As you can notice, the tobacco is lightly packed to allow free air flow. The bong has been filled with water and the flame is lit as it is being gently drawn by our user through steady whiffs. Once the tobacco starts burning, the smoke begins to fill the beaker at the bottom, and the diffusion process begins at the percolator.

Watch closely, as the percolator instantly begins the cooling and filtering process. The smoke from the bottom chamber begins to gather in the upper shaft of the pipe, now visibly cleaner and cooler. Pause the video at 0:14 for a moment to see the difference a percolator can make! The smoke at the upper shaft is as white as snow when compared to the bottom chamber.

What are percolators in bongs

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 (read our cannabis culture smoking terms) 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. This filtered thick smoke is best for learning how to blow o rings because there is very little to no discomfort when the smoke is in your lungs.

As you hit your best 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 Bowls

best glass bongs

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.  Like most best bongs and best 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 your best bongs but still provides H2O that will cool down the smoke before it hits your lungs.

Bubbler bongs 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 2018!

  • Since I’ve been back from europe I’ve been trying to live with what we had there but I can’t, so I’ve recently ordered a proper glass bong setup from Smoke Cartel which is waiting for me at the post office now.
    • You made a great choice. Smoke Cartel carries many different bongs and dab rigs. I believe they are the leading online headshop. They carry pretty much everything you can think of and always have the essentials in stock. The unique and cool bongs tend to sell out the fastest so grab yours when you find it.
  • My first bong hits were from bongs I had made myself. I used a plastic coke bottle and some aluminum foil. I remember being super stoned. I traded a quarter of flowers for my first glass bong, which I called Rufus. It was a dark red vase drilled and fitted with very nice blue glass bowl. This one lasted for a while. Then there was Friendly Lucifer and the Night Tower of Terror and of course so many other bongs, including a few from this website.
    • The very first paraphernalia I had was a glass bong. I couldn't come up with a name, it was hard because this was a very special bong. This bong changed colors when you smoked it! It would turn from a blue / green color to a yellow / red after you hit it a few times. The color changing effects were mostly where the bowl head was; the heat simply allowed the colors to change. I eventually decided to call it 'the chameleon'
  • The cannabis industry is definitely growing more and more with all the new age products. Recycler bongs are just another example of it.
    • Yes, I agree. Recycler bongs are one of the best ways of enjoying the taste and flavors of your buds. The reason it is called a recycler bong is because as you inhale the smoke will go through a cycle-like percolator that filters the smoke multiple of times before exiting the bong. This multiple filtration percolator is called a recycler percolator and is usually built as part of the bong itself. It essentially 'recycles' the smoke, providing smoke filtration unlike any other percolator. However, these bongs are much harder to make so they tend to cost a bit more. There should be a few recycler bong reviews above. A recycler percolator is the best for smoke filtration and will always leave you with smooth hits.
  • I would say that I have hit a bong maybe 200 times in my life. I’ve only taken about 10 hits from non brand glass bongs. I had the chance to smoke with a headshop owner who brought along his best bong. All I can remember is taking 3 hits from it and was then basted off to space.
  • People smoke out of all kinds of things like apples or high tech dry herb vaporizers (or even cannabis oil vaporizers) but if you love waterpipes and you’re ready to invest some money into a high-quality glass bong that will be a solid, reliable smoking tool for years to come, then you should take a look at Smoke Cartel.
    • Smoke Cartel is a great place to go for your glass pieces. They carry everything from bowls, glass bongs, dab rigs and many other paraphernalia. One of the things to look for in an online headshop is their reputation. Smoke Cartel is probably the best online headshop. They can be compared to the 'amazon of bongs' and they have a huge selection from the best brands. I highly recommend purchasing your next bong from Smoke Cartel.
  • So I’m back to find another great looking glass bong on your site. I enjoy your detailed descriptions and personal experiences because this is important for me. I consider glass bongs an art form and this is another example of that. I think an awesome bong would be a great conversation starter at a party!
    • I see your one to impress your friends. I highly suggest getting a decorative piece by Empire Glass Works. The Sriracha Sauce Bong or even the Cupcake Bong have amazing intricate designs that will please almost everyone. They also hit quite nice and don't leave you coughing.
  • I'm after a glass bong but cannot spend more than $40. Plz give me an idea of what i should be looking for and what you think is best for me. Thank you.
    • It sounds like your short on cash, take a look at the UPC and GravLabs bongs because they tend to be made with high quality borosilicate glass and are still very affordable. GravLabs is well known for creating unique and affordable pieces for those tight on cash. These pieces usually lack percolators, but may include an ice catcher. For the price these bongs will please you with your purchase and get the job done. If you want a smoother rip, think about investing some more money into a higher quality bong that includes percs. Percolators will filter the smoke further and deliver a smooth rip.
  • I have just started using glass bongs this last year, my favorite is the “zong” bong. i find them far better for health benefits. i recently bought a ws series puncher off this website and I am very happy.
    • The Zong bong is quite unique. It features a vertical zig-zag base that creates more room for the smoke to expand and filter. These bongs tend to fit in smaller places than usual bongs because they are on the small side. Perfect for traveling or on the go, the Zong bong is truly an impressive piece and I'm glad to hear you were able to find the best bong for you!
  • i acquired a beautiful thick glass bong from my visit to america and it became a full time favorite smoking device. Unfortunately I cleaned it out and forgot to take out the slider, it dropped and smashed!
  • This brings back vivid memories of my old percolator bong. My friend ended up accidentally breaking it. It was such a nice smooth smoke. It had those ice holder notches at the top to hold the ice. I was so upset when it broke. Glass bongs are so much better quality than plastic ones and the last a super long time. You can actually taste what you’re smoking and your lungs dont kill.
    • Plastic bongs are extremely unhealthy. I would always suggest to opt in for glass bongs over plastic or silicone bongs. When you hit a plastic bong all of the hot smoke clings to the inside walls and breaks off small particles of plastic, which you then inhale. Just about everyone can tell a difference in taste when hitting a plastic bong versus a glass bong. Sorry to hear your friend has destroyed your bong, I'm sure your very upset :(

    • It's always best to go to a local headshop first before buying bongs online. The reason for this is simple. When you first find out about bongs you have so many questions and so many new things to learn it is best to have someone who knows about this subject explain everything in simple terms. Many of you will start a google research campaign and get all of your details from online, but it's best to have someone who is right there in front of you to physically show you the different components of a bong as well as help you decide the best bong for you. After you spend some time with the expert you can then decide if they carry a bong that you would like to purchase. Unlike storefront headshops, online headshops have massive selections with dozens of reputable brands and many different types of paraphernalia. All of these options can be great but they can also leave you scratching your head, that is why it's always best to look up bong reviews before your purchase online. Luckily we have dedicated this page only to the best bong reviews.
  • There are so many options when it comes to bongs, many people do not know this. For example I recently just found out about ice bongs, and now glass bongs?! Awesome of you to review some gravity bongs. I still don’t know what the best option for me would be though – what’s your opinion?
    • If you are looking for a tough and durable bong, that rips the smoothest and allows you to taste the amazing terps, I would recommend bongs that have at least one percolator, and that feature an ice catcher. Just these two tips will allow you to find a bong that will leave you satisfied. Of course I also recommend you pay attention to the thickness of the glass. This is very important. You do not want to purchase anything that looks extremely frail or like it will shatter in your hand while you are holding it. You want to looking for something that is thick and has some weight to it. A thick bong is less likely to break from small tips and bumps, as well as the internal percolators will endure the slightest jerks. Lastly you should look for a bong that is designed in such a way that will allow it to be cleaned and maintained without a massive headache. All bongs need constant maintenance, and if you get something that is easier to clean you will enjoy less Iso-baths and less maintenance keeping your bong looking and tasting amazing.
  • I love bongs because they are my favorite way to smoke :D however I only smoke regular glass bongs without any of those fancy attachments or percolators. Sometimes when you hit the bong hard the smoke can be harsh on the lungs and throat.
    • Smoke can be extrmely harsh when taking large rips from bongs, also talk about being terrible for your lungs. Water filtration is key to a smooth bong rip (clean water). With the water you should also make sure your bong has an ice catcher, as this is extremly helpful at reducing the harshness of the smoke. Using ice cubes allows the smoke to pre-cool before it enteres your lungs. Lastly you want to look for a bong with atleast one percolator. A percolator will ensure the best oxygen to water ratio and will filter the smoke the best. Some bongs come with multiple percolators and tend to cost a little more, the smoke filtration you get with these types of bongs is impressive! There is even a special type of percolator, called a recycler, that filters your smoke two or even three times in one pass! This is done with either one or multiple circle chambers that allow the smoke to go back to the main chamber to be filtered once again. Of course these bongs are the most expensive as this takes a lot of work and practice to build such a piece, but it is also the best in smoke filtration and will leave you and your friends impressed. Now you know what to look out for, in our reviews above you will find bongs that include many of these features.
    • Currently we don't have any reviews on silicone bongs, and for a good reason too. Silicone bongs tend to be made as cheap as possible and almost all are mass produced in China. We have had only a few experiences with silicone bongs, and each time we were not impressed with the guality of the peices, the chemical tasting rips (seriously, a lot of VOC's), and finally the extremly hot metal bowl (get ready to be burned). We do not waste our time on such poor quality 'art', we also don't know what the future holds, maybe you will see a review on silicone bongs soon. You could always connect with us on facebook:

  • Pure Glass is the US version of Weed Star, cheap alternatives to the likes of RooR, Toro and Illadelph. This is why many of these can seem expensive. I’ve heard many stories of Pure beakers falling apart when cleaning it and various other problems with weak construction of the bong.
