What to Look for When Buying a Bong

Smoking is a great way to relax and enjoy yourself, and if you’re like most people, you probably like to do it with a good bong. But with all the different options on the market, how do you know which one is right for you?

Bongs come in all shapes and sizes. Some are simple and some are more complex with a variety of chambers and percolators. If you’re new to the bong-buying game, it can be tough to know what to look for. This guide will help you figure out what features to consider when purchasing your first (or new) bong.

The Bong Matters

You might be thinking “well, does the bong that I use actually matter?”, and there are many different opinions on this, with some people saying that at the end of the day you will still be inhaling smoke. The truth is that the bong does matter.

You might want something portable that you could use on the go, or perhaps you can’t smoke on the premises where you live so you don’t want a bong that creates massive clouds of smoke. When it comes to buying a bong, there is no reason that you have to settle for just anything.

The Material

The first thing that you will want to take into consideration when buying a bong is the material that is used. The material of the bong affects a few things, such as how durable it is, as well as how expensive it is.

If you want a bong that will give you the bang for your buck, then acrylic bongs are the best choice. Unfortunately, don’t expect acrylic bongs to provide the best taste or smoking experience. If you want a bong that delivers great taste, is versatile in terms of attachments and is the choice of many bong users, then glass bongs are a fine choice.

The Size

One of the most important considerations to make would be the size of the bong. If you travel around a lot, then you should probably look to get a very small bong, since they are portable. This means that you will have to sacrifice experiencing smooth hits since mini bong hits are very harsh.

Medium bongs are great if you don’t travel around that much, but they aren’t exactly very portable. They will provide much smoother hits than mini bongs, and do well for someone who smokes every day. Big bongs are perfect for home use and provide the smoothest hits since they have the best smoke filtration and airflow; they also allow you to take bigger hits.

The Design

Another thing to consider would be the design of the bong, or in the other words, what it looks like. Let’s face it, you will be using the bong every day, so you have to at least like what it looks like.

The good news is that there are many options on the market in terms of the design of a bong. Some are black as night, whilst others use a wide variety of different colors. If you have money, you can find bongs that are practically works of art. However, if you’re a beginner, you might want to start with something plain, since dropping an expensive bong is not a great feeling.

Bowl Sizes

There are generally 3 bowl sizes, and they are small, large, and party size. You will need to consider which bowl size you would like to use. For example, if you end up getting a party-size bowl, but it’s only you who smokes, then you will end up wasting a lot of cannabis. For individual smokers that don’t take big hits, small bowls would be the best.

On the other hand, if you enjoy taking massive hits from your bowl then a large bowl is a necessity. The great thing about large bowls is the fact that you can take multiple hits, or, if you’re feeling brave, one large hit. As mentioned above, you also get a party size bowl, but that would be best if you have many friends over and everyone is sharing.
