Why glass bongs are the best choice

Why Glass Bongs are the Best Type of Bong and What are the Several Types to Choose From?

glass bongsA high-quality glass bong is expensive. You want to be able to enjoy its use for a long time. One of the ways you can make this possible is to always keep your bong clean to avoid resin build-up.

Moreover, a dirty bong does not allow you the fresh, enjoyable, and healthy smoke that you get from a sparkling-clean glass bong. To get the finest taste and quality from your weed, make sure that your glass bong is always in clean tip-top shape.

Cultivate the habit of regularly changing the water in your glass bong. Rinse it out, too, so that gunk will not accumulate over time (see details on glass). This way, you save yourself from having to do the heavy-duty clean-up that a filthy gong demands.

Do not allow it to clump up in the solution, either. Just add enough, little by little, to make the alcohol cloudy and give the solution time to work on the accumulated resin in your glass bong.

You can also get a ready-to-use commercial cleaning solution and use it as is. No need to use salt or baking powder. The solution already includes an abrasive ingredient.

Different Parts of a Bong and Why Percolator Bongs are the Best Type of Bong

Bongs are used by people who smoke weed and tobacco. They are the preferred tool for smoking because of the cool and pure taste of the smoke they produce.

Basic Parts of the Bong:

Bowl

The bowl is where the weed or tobacco is placed to be burned. Most bongs have detachable bowls. Detachable bowls are called slider bowls.

Downstem

The downstem is a part of the stem hole that is submerged in water.

Stem hole

The stem hole is attached at the base of the bong. This is where the smoke of the burned weed or tobacco goes through before being filtered in water.

Base

The base is the chamber that is filled with water. This is where the basic filtration process takes place.

Tube

The tube is where the filtered weed or tobacco smoke travels for clearing (inhalation). Some tubes have a percolator inside for further filtration.

Other parts that cannot be found in other bongs:

Diffuser

Shotgun hole

It is a hole found on the tube that aids the inhalation of the smoke. It is used instead of a slider.

Ice catcher

The ice catcher allows the smoker to add ice in the bong tube. The ice cools the smoke before inhalation.

Diffuser

The diffuser is a type of a downstem that has holes that aids to cool and expand the smoke.

Percolators

Like the diffuser, the percolators also aid to cool and expand the smoke. They are found inside the tube. They make the smoke smoother by adding drag to it.

Percolators split the smoke in several ways. This makes the smoke smoother by running it over more surface area. Because of this, the smoke produced is smoother, purer and cooler.
