What is a bong?

A bong, also known as a water pipe, is a filtration device that is often used for smoking cannabis, tobacco, or other herb substances. The most important characteristic of the Bong is the water compartment, which serves to cool and filter smoke before it is inhaled. Bongs come in all shapes and sizes, from simple glass versions to complex works of art.

Differences between bongs and other smoking equipment

In contrast to dry legs, Bongs offer a water filtration that purifies and cools the smoke. This results in a softer, more pleasant smoke experience. Bongs can also supply larger hits than other methods of smoke consumption.

How does a bong work?

The principle behind a bong is relatively easy. Smoke is generated by the burning of your smoking where in the bowl (bowl), after which it is led to the water compartment by the trunk (downstem). The water cools the smoke and filters partially harmful substances before the smoke (neck) goes to the mouth opening (mouthpiece) and eventually goes to the user.

The importance of water filtration

Water filtration is essential for reducing the amount of tar and other harmful substances that you inhale. It also helps to cool the smoke, which ensures a softer experience.

How do you use a bong correctly?

Fill with water: Start by filling the water compartment of your bong with sufficient water so that the bottom of the trunk is under water.

Preparing your smoking where: Fill the bowl with your smoking where. Make sure it is not too tightly packed so that the air can flow through.

Lighting and breathing in: Keep your mouth on the mouth opening, light the smoke, and slowly inhale while the smoke bubbles through the water.

Take the hit: Once you have collected enough smoke, remove the bowl from the bong (if applicable) and inhale the smoke.

How much water do you need?

The amount of water needed varies depending on the type and size of your bong. A good rule of thumb is that the bottom of the trunk must be under water about 2.5 to 5 cm.

Step 1: emptying: Pour the old water from your bong after each use.
