Blunts, joints, thai sticks, edibles, wax, oil, and so many more products are available now to satisfy your cravings for THC or CBD. There are many different ways to consume cannabis now, but one thing has remained constant: the bong is the preferred method of inhalation. There are numerous oil burner pipe bong designs to choose from, much like the various methods of cannabis ingestion.
What is a Bong?
The term “bong” has become hip to use when referring to a water pipe used to smoke plants. The consequences of using a bong and how they come about are often poorly understood. A bubbling sound and a “cooler” flavor profile result from the smoke passing through the water-filled chamber. Bong smoking is easier on the lungs than blunts or pipes because of the water filtering system. In addition to smoking, you can relax to the soothing sound of flowing water.
While a bong is a type of water pipe, not all water pipes are bongs.
Some Common Bong Designs Include:
- Straight Tube
One of the first things you’ll notice about a new bong is its shape. The three most typical bong designs are the straight tube, the beaker, and the recycler.
Types of Bong Materials:
- Glass (Most Popular)
- Acrylic (Most likely to come from China)
- Silicone (Most Bendable)
- Stainless Steel/Metal (Most Durable)
- Ceramic (Most Artsy)
Glass is by far the most common material for bongs, while other materials are used.
How do I hit a bong?
Make sure the bong is full of water to the point where the downstream is completely immersed; too little water and you risk getting splashed while smoking, while too much water produces a harder hit. Next, measure out how much weed you want and fill the bowl. Get the bowl ready for the downstream, light up, and settle down for a relaxing smoke session. If you want to light up a bong, use your non-dominant hand to grab the bong while you hold the lighter in your dominant hand. You’re not drinking from the bowl or trying to eat the bong when you light it and place your lips within the mouthpiece. To make the water bubble and fill the chamber, suck (don’t breathe in). Pick up the bowl when you’ve got enough smoke to satisfy your needs and take a deep drag. As often as required.
What bong design gives the smoothest hit?
The hit from a bong with multiple chambers is more consistent and comfortable.
In most cases, more percolators equal better.
Honeycomb and matrix percolators are our go-to’s. These are fantastic at dispersing the smoke and easing the hit. Don’t forget the ice for a refreshingly chilly finish.
Why do Glass bongs have the edge over other materials?
The use of borosilicate in the production of Chameleon’s water bongs contributes to their durability (Pyrex). Because it is resistant to heat and percussion, this material is frequently used in kitchen and laboratory equipment. Even yet, it’s still susceptible to being shattered by a single, large drop.
Further, as it has very little surface porosity, smoking out of a Pyrex pipe is the most secure option.
Glass Bongs that are hand-blown and decorated with vibrant colors are works of art that also provide a superior smoking experience. They don’t change the taste or smell of your herb in any way, allowing you to appreciate it as it was intended.
Choosing the Right Bong:
After learning about the various bongs available, it’s time to pick the one that’s best for you. It’s important to go with your gut while deciding on a bong style. A straight-tube oil burner bong is a good option if you want a straightforward bong that doesn’t require much in the way of maintenance. If you prefer a less harsh high, a beaker bong may be the way to go. And if you want the pinnacle of smoking enjoyment, look no further than a recycling bong.
