What is a bong or water pipe?
Bongs are the most usual cannabis consumption paraphernalia. Used mostly with dry herb. You might know them by different names like water pipes. For the real bong lovers, it can be a big part of their smoking ritual, customizing their collection and naming each piece of art.
History of Bongs.
The background of bongs goes back in time to Chinese’s Ming Dynasty, where they used a water pipe to cool the smoke. The word itself comes from the Thai word “baung”, referred to a cylindrical tube of bamboo.
Hookahs are a close cousin to bongs. Primarily used to smoke tobacco with different flavors. They can use multiple hose as a mouthpiece, which allows for easier sharing from one bowl.
Anatomy of a bong
We’re going to analyze the different pieces of a standard bong:
The rounded part where your dry herbs are filled and ignited. Usually removable to allow cleaning.
Also referred as the carb. Is a tiny hole that allows emptying all the smoke from the bong chamber.
A tube that let the smoke flow from the bowl down the bottom base, where it then filters through the water.
The lower part of the bong. Can be shaped in many ways, depending on the style. Bubble form is the most common, as it allows to create a water chamber where the smoke filters to cool off.
Tube and mouthpiece.
This part is the chamber that accumulates the smoke after being filtered through the water. The last part before the smoke disappears in your lungs after a nice bong hit.
Advantages and disadvantages from a bong
The number one reason people uses bongs. Is the ability to cool off the smoke by filtering through the water. Allowing for smooth but dense smoke hits. For us, the taste of cannabis enhances when consuming through a bong rather than a joint.
On the downside. Bongs are bulky, not portable and with a high tendency to break into thousand of tiny pieces. Not recommended for traveling or smoking on the go. But if you like to smoke at home, it is definetly a must have item.
