Glass Bongs

Bongs are notorious for providing powerful hits with a level of smooth unmatched by most other smoking devices. Glass bongs, in particular, tend to be the most popular category of bong available on the market. This is probably because glass can be made into a work of art and the clean flavor and ease of cleaning that a glass bong provides. Be sure to be careful: glass bongs can get quite heavy and even the sturdiest are liable to break if not cared after or handled with care.

How to Choose the Best Glass Bong

There are many things to consider when choose your bong, like choosing from all the bongs with designs. When it comes to glass water bongs, what works the best will differ from one user to the next. Therefore, what glass bong will be best for you will ultimately come down to your personal preferences. Glass water bongs come in a variety of styles. Is having a thick glass bong important? How about a 2 foot bong, or maybe a funny hand held bong. Below are some of the popular factors considered when purchasing a glass bong.

How Often the Glass Bong is Used

One of the most fundamental questions you need to consider is how often you plan to use your glass water bong. Daily users will want an easy to clean glass bong to avoid the gross (and hazardous) buildup that can result from frequent use.

Water Bong Size

One important factor every smoker needs to consider before purchasing a cool glass water bong is the size of the water pipe. While smaller glass bongs are easier for portability and discretion (in terms of being easy to put away and keep out of sight), larger glass bongs offer larger chambers. What this means for the user is you will be able to take in larger hits at one time. Imagine a 20-inch bong!

What Type of Features Are You Looking For

Like many smoking devices, the types of glass water bongs can range from simple and straightforward to more complicated options. If you are new to smoking, some features can add a complication to the device that can take some of the joy out of using them. Therefore, it is essential to determine what type of features you are looking for before making your purchase. For example, percolators - while not essential, percolators are a nice addition to have and come in multiple varieties including (but not limited to) shower heads, honeycombs, turbines, or inlines.

What Do You Plan to Smoke

While glass water bongs are primarily used for smoking dry herbs, with the introduction of concentrates these devices are now able to offer more than one option. For dry herb smokers, a straight tube or classic beaker design will always be an easy choice. However, if you are wanting to use concentrates for dabbing, you will need to purchase a bong with the ability to swap out the glass bowl for a dab nail attachment.

Types of Glass Bongs

When it comes to glass bongs you can find thick glass, themed bongs, clear, indestructible, and so much more. While there is a wide selection of unique bongs for sale, the standard glass water bong has always been popular. The advantages of these cool water bongs offer not only a great smoking experience but many other benefits as well.

Thick Glass Bongs

Thick glass bongs are a highly popular type of bong. Your cool glass bong is fragile, but thick quality glass can be surprisingly durable. These are some of the best bong options, whether it is a simple clear bong or themed. A thick glass bong is not an indestructible bong, but it will hold up to smaller bumps that cheap glass won't

Clear Glass Water Glass Bongs

While there is a wide selection of options to choose from, clear glass bongs are the most popular among enthusiasts. One of the most common reasons for choosing glass water bongs is because they do allow you to see the smoke accumulate, and watch the water create a cleaner and more refreshing hit. Although fairly standard, clear glass bongs can be unique. Often this type of bong is handmade and is as diverse as the artisan who created it.

Silicone Bongs

Now these are some cool water bongs. Silicone bongs have quickly gained popularity over the years. Since they can be mass-produced, silicone bongs tend to be cheaper than their glass counterparts. Silicone water bongs are easy to use and offer durability not found in other materials, making them great for portability. These are just about indestructible bongs, and they tend to be easier to clean. You can take them apart. The silicone sections come apart and you can really clean them.

Percolator Bongs

Percolator bongs (also known as bubbler bongs) can come in a variety of shapes and sizes, but what makes them unique is the percolator they contain. The percolator is a type of filter inside of the bong that evenly disperses bubbles inside of the bong. These bubbles filter out the carcinogens and toxins in the smoke prior to inhalation. While they do tend to result in greater resistance, percolator bongs provide extremely smooth puffs.

Ice Bongs

Ice bongs (also known as ice catchers) are a type of water bong featuring small notches in the neck of the bong. This allows the bong to hold ice cubes directly in the smoke path, making them extremely effective at cooling the smoke before it reaches the mouth, throat, and lungs of the user providing cool and refreshing hits.

Dab Bong

A dab bong is more commonly referred to as a dab rig and is specifically used to smoke wax concentrate. While glass water bongs are generally used with dry herbs, by exchanging the glass bowl for a dab nail, you can change what type of material you smoke out of it. Dab rigs tend to provide better flavoring and vapor consistency than other bong or pipe options.

Bong Bowls

Bong bowls are an essential part of glass water bongs. While they are a part of the glass bong, they are also a category all of their own. Many glass bongs offer a removable bong bowl, allowing for the user to interchange the bowl for their choice in size. However, it is essential you purchase a bowl in both the correct size (typically either 9mm, 14mm, or 18mm) and joint type (male or female).

Indestructible Bongs

There is nothing worse then breaking your favorite glass water bong. No matter how careful you are, there is still risk of breaking even a thick glass bong. If you are looking for a bong that is more indestructible, you will be interested in a silicone water bong. Silicone are considered to be the best bongs by some because they will just about last forever. Try breaking or tearing a silicone bong and you'll see. Plus they come in so many unique and funny bong options!
