Things to Consider When Buying Your First Bong


You want to buy a bong, but you wonder which one is the best for you? There are so many designs, sizes, and materials that sometimes you don't know which one to choose. Do you want to quit smoking joints or use a vaporizer to switch to bongs? We will make it easy for you: below, we will tell you what you should pay attention to Things to Consider When Buying Your First Bong.


A bong is used to smoke mind-altering herbs such as marijuana and hashish. Bongs are usually more suitable for smoking marijuana and hashish than shishas (hookahs or hookahs). Shishas are more suitable for smoking fruit tobacco or hookah tobacco. With a bong, you can smoke marijuana and hashish without having to add tobacco to them, just like in a joint. Not all stoners are fans of cigarettes. A bong allows you to smoke pure marijuana and hashish without the drawbacks of tobacco.

Additionally, bongs filter and cool the smoke before reaching the user's mouth. The experience of smoking a bong is entirely different from smoking a joint. The bong is often used to enhance the effect of marijuana. When smoking in a bong, just a couple of hits are enough to get you high. If you are buying a bong for the first time,

Before buying a bong, it is helpful to ask yourself the following questions:

·       What do I want to smoke, herbs or concentrates?

·       Where am I going to use the bong?

·       Am I going to use it every day or just occasionally?

If you know the answers to these questions, you can start looking for the most suitable bong for you. When choosing, you must consider the following points: the size, the material used, the price, and the maintenance required.

·       The Size Of The Bong

If you are going to buy a bong, you may ask yourself: how important is the size? This is important when considering where you want to use the bong, but it also affects the smoking experience. As mentioned above, bongs filter and cool the smoke before it reaches your mouth. A smaller bong has a smaller chamber, making the smoke sharper and warmer. In a larger bong, the smoke cools better, and you can inhale it more deeply.

A smaller bong is, of course, a bit more discreet and more convenient to carry around. If you're going to a party or visiting friends, you can easily take a small bong with you and smoke more discreetly too. A larger bong is only suitable for use at home. If you are going to buy your first bong (to smoke at home), we recommend a bong with an average height of 25 to 35 cm.

·       The Material Of The Bong

The most used materials for bongs are plastic, glass, ceramic, silicone, and metal. If you want to have the best experience of smoking marijuana or hash in a bong, choose a glass bong. These bongs are specially made to smoke marijuana and enhance its effects. Glass and ceramic bongs provide the purest smoking experience. Glass and ceramic bongs are fragile. That sometimes prevents some people from buying such a bong. Of course, you can also opt for a bong made from scientific glass or borosilicate glass. These types of glass are stronger than conventional glass and break less easily.

The advantage of silicone is that it is a light material, making it more comfortable to carry the bong with you. Silicone is a durable and quite resistant material. Silicone bongs are easy to clean, and the material is flexible and versatile in use. If you opt for a metal bong, you are assured of a very robust and durable bong. However, a metal bong can influence the flavor of what you smoke.

Plastic or acrylic is versatile, and bongs made from these materials often come in all sorts of interesting colors and designs. They are lightweight and do not break easily. In addition, they are also very affordable. Therefore, a plastic bong could be a good choice for a first bong. However, keep in mind that the taste and smoking experience is not as good compared to a glass or ceramic bong.

To choose the most suitable bong for you, you must take into account where you will want to use it: at home alone or in other places as well. If you want to use it in other places, like parties or friends' houses, choose a bong that can easily be transported. That depends on the material, design, and size of the bong. If you want to smoke at home and have the purest smoking experience, then a glass bong is the best option. They weigh more and are more fragile; therefore, they are not ideal to transport.
