What bowl bong sizes are available?

What are the different bong bowl sizes 4

There are generally three different bong bowl piece sizes that match perfectly with its compatible bong base. The three different bowl bong sizes are 10mm, 14mm, and 18mm bong joint sizes. You are not exactly taking a shot in the dark if you think you have to guess which is the right bong joint size for your desired water pipe because you can usually eyeball it based on the bong bowl joint size. 

For reference, a 10mm joint size bong bowl will not be able to fit a dime. If a dime does fit at the top of the bong bowl, it is 14mm, and if it falls even further than the top of a new bong bowl then it is an 18mm joint size. 

Choose the right bowl for your bong

In order to properly use your water bong, you will need to make sure you have the correct accessories to use with it, otherwise, your water pipe will not be able to function. You want to optimize your bong to the fullest, so grabbing compatible and durable smoking accessories the first time around is ideal when choosing the perfect bong setup. A few questions to ask yourself prior to pressing to purchase are:

  • What size bong do I have?
  • What size bowl do I need?
  • Am I looking for a specific type of design?

Keeping these questions in mind will point you in the right direction as well as alert you of any information you might need to dig for when searching for the right bong accessories. You do not want to be smoking your loose herb in just anything, so why not go the extra mile to make sure you have the best bong for you?

10mm bong joint size

Also known around the cannabis community as nano joints or micro joints, a 10mm bong joint size is extremely small and you will know one when you see one. This is usually paired with mini bongs for users that want small one-hitters, and while you will not be able to pack as much dry herb with this type of bong bowl size you will still be able to get a very smooth and quick hit regardless!

14mm bong joint size

The most commonly used type of bong bowl size, a 14mm bong bowl is generally found in most medium-sized bongs and are always available when you need a replacement. If you need to confirm a 14mm bong bowl piece, just take a dime and if it fits at the top of the bong bowl then it is considered a 14mm bong bowl. 

18mm bong joint size

The biggest of them all, 18mm bong bowl sizes are usually found in huge bongs that can hold all of that smoke when packed to the fullest. Out of all the different bong bowl sizes, this is the type to bring to a group gathering if you are going to be passing the big bong around for consumption. A dime will fall into an 18mm bong bowl, that is how big it is compared to the other two bowls for bong sizes when you measure it!

The two sizes that are most common when choosing bong bowls in most bongs are 14mm and 18mm bowl pieces as they are normally meant for regular and large-sized bongs. The different types of bongs and bong bowls are also helpful when trying to figure out what type of setup is ideal for you.

Now, the real question when choosing compatible bong pieces is: what is the gender of your bong and why is this so important to understand?

Male joint vs female joint sizes

What are the different bong bowl sizes 6

One of the most important aspects of a bong each user must pay attention to is whether a bong has a male or female gender joint. This will determine which accessories are compatible or not with your dream bong, so before you start building up your collection you need to understand the basics of a bong’s anatomy.

All you need to know is that if your bong has a male joint, it needs female joint accessories, and vice versa. Typically, a bong has a female joint and requires a bong bowl male joint to insert into for full functionality. There are many, many different kinds of bongs out there that are male joints and need a female joint bong bowl so double-check before adding to your cart!

Bong adapters

If you end up buying the wrong type of bong bowl for your bong or have multiple bongs that are male and female joints so you would like to reuse your bong bowl - bong adapters are for you! They are specifically made to enable functionality between different bong bowl sizes and joints to ensure that it fits correctly for optimal use. 

Other parts of a bong

Besides keeping up with the bong bowls, there are some other parts of a bong that you might want to keep in mind when choosing your next best bong! Many stoners love to search for additional functions in a bong, like bong bowls that have an ash catcher to filter legal dry herbs or a compatible bowl that works best with percolators for extra filtration. Each bong part serves an important role in performance so the more you know about the anatomy of a bong, the better!
