There are several ways to smoke and enjoy legal herbs. One of the most popular is by using a bong.
A bong is also known as a water pipe. It’s used to enhance the experience and reduce the temperature of the smoke.
Bongs come in all different shapes and sizes and can be made from a host of materials.
But no matter what they may be made from, or look like, they all pretty much work in the same fashion. Everything else is left to the glassblower.
Fun Fact: The first recorded use of a bong dates back more than 2,000 years ago. Excavations in Russia have found gold bongs used by the Iranian-Euastrion Scythe tribe
There are several key components to a bong:
This is where the ingredients are added before being set alight. Depending on the design, the bowl may be able to be removed and swapped for another.
Also known as the carb hole or the shot hole, the carburetor clears smoke from the chamber. Some bongs have the carburetor directly built-in, while others must remove the bowl.
This is the small tube that brings the smoke from the bowl to the base. The smoke can then blend with the water
This lies at the bottom of the bong. The base can be designed in many styles, but most commonly come in the shape of a bubble.
The tube starts at the chamber and ends at the mouthpiece. It’s responsible for moving the smoke through the bong to the mouth once it’s been filtered.
