Best Glass Water Pipes
Every cannabis user has a preference when it comes to how they consume marijuana. Recently, vape pens and dab pens have become increasingly popular, but bongs hold a special place in a stoner’s heart. The bong dates way back to ancient times and derives from the Thai word “buang” which refers to a cylindrical wooden tube or pipe that Thais used to smoke out of. The oldest bong ever discovered was in Russia and made of pure gold. Eventually, it made its way to Asia and so began the evolution of the bong. Once glass bongs were introduced, the world of cannabis changed forever and for the better, obviously. I mean would you prefer taking a bong rip out of a wooden pipe?
How to use a bong
Although the bong was later recoined “glass water pipe” to market toward tobacco users, it is most definitely best used for packing some good ol’ ganja. For the newbies reading, here’s how you use a weed bong:
- Pour water into the bubbler or water bong.
- Pack the bowl with marijuana (use a grinder for an even smoother hit).
- Put your mouth over the mouthpiece at the top.
- Light a flame over the bowl and start to inhale slowly.
- As the weed burns, the water filters it through the chamber and you’ll see smoke starting to form.
- When you’re ready to fully inhale the smoke rising up the chamber, lift the bowl up so air can pass through and inhale the smoke (this is called “clearing” a bong).
- Enjoy your high!
