First up, every stoner must know;
What are weed bongs?
If you do not know what weed bongs are – allow us to explain briefly;
Bong is a water pipe, mostly used to smoke cannabis, its extracts and hashish.
What is the difference among Hookah and a Bong?
The prime difference between a regular shisha/hookah and a bong is that you inhale via a fixed mouthpiece instead of one or multiple tubes. At the same time, a normal hookah is designed for smoking over an extended time, approximately 10 to 30 minutes.
While a bong is smoked by taking in one or two bigger hits before putting it away for a breather, you can smoke it slowly, but that is not how many use it.
The best part about smoking a bong is that it will give you a kick you can never experience by smoking a joint – so use it to your advantage, maybe?
How to work a bong?
Bongs are easy devices to use and operate. Before we explain further, let’s familiarize ourselves with some common terms that you need to understand.
Basic Weed Bongs Terminology
The basic terminology includes;
Bowl is a part of the weed bongs in which you put and light your cannabis.
Most bongs come with a down stem; it is the removable pipe that spreads smoke into the bong’s water
The screen acts as a filter that you can put in a bong bowl to prevent the weed and ashes from getting sucked into the bong itself.
Diffusers are specifically designed; these can be both; a special down stem or a fixed part; basically, it improves the cooling and filtration of smoke, having to distribute smoke more effectively.
Carb hole or Kickhole
This is a hole in the chamber of various bongs that are used to clear out the bong by drawing in all the smoke so you won’t have to lift the bowl.
A simple overview of smoking weed bongs;
First, fill up your bong with water, then load it with the herbs; if your bong has a carb hole, plug it with a finger. Now light the bowl, and begin inhaling.
The bong shall not begin to fill up with smoke; you can now release your finger from the hole or lift the bowl up to inhale more, and draw out all the smoke from the bong.
It’s that simple; now, let’s get into a bit more into the details;
How much water should be put in weed bongs?
You must work precisely to fill right amount of water.
Fill up too little water and the smoke won’t be filtered or cooled and excessive water ends up leaking the bong or the water gets inside your mouth.
Thus it is important to fill the bongs just right.
How much weed to use, and should you crumble it?
The precise way to fill in a bowl with herbs is by crumbling it as small as possible – or else the herbs will burn too slow and too long, and there will be no getting a proper hit.
But if you want to smoke your bong like a hookah for a long time, the bigger blocks of hash are your perfect solution.
While smoking weed, it is recommended to crumble or grind herbs similarly when rolling a joint, essentially into smaller size but not into a powder. Bigger chunks won’t burn properly, while a fine powder will negatively impact the airflow – making it difficult to draw.
How to light your bong properly?
After filling up the bongs, they are ready to light. You can simply take a lighter and light them, right?
That could be done, but there are multiple ways to do it better.
First off, do not light up the bongs with a zippo as it affects the taste of herbs negatively, after all you don’t want to taste the light fuel in your bongs.
