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:
The bowl is where the weed or tobacco is placed to be burned. Most bongs have detachable bowls. Detachable bowls are called slider bowls.
The downstem is a part of the stem hole that is submerged in water.
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.
The base is the chamber that is filled with water. This is where the basic filtration process takes place.
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:
It is a hole found on the tube that aids the inhalation of the smoke. It is used instead of a slider.
The ice catcher allows the smoker to add ice in the bong tube. The ice cools the smoke before inhalation.
The diffuser is a type of a downstem that has holes that aids to cool and expand the smoke.
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.
Why percolator bongs are the best type of bong?
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.
