Factors To Consider When Buying Bongs and Water Pipe

Bongs are a great way to add some flair to the smoking experience. They come in all shapes and sizes, are virtually indestructible, and are fun to show off. But before you take the plunge on a new bong or water pipe, some factors should be considered. Buying a bong should be the easiest part about smoking when you’re sure of what you’re looking for and have researched.


There are many different uses for bongs and water pipes, so knowing your reason for wanting one will go far in helping you decide which one is right for you. If it’s to smoke tobacco or cannabis, then size is probably the most crucial factor to keep in mind. If you plan on sharing it with several friends and want it to look nice, then glass quality should be most important since aesthetics are an essential part of smoking socially. 


Things might be different if you want to use your glass bong and water pipe for just one particular purpose. Things like portability and the ability to be cleaned easily are all essential aspects of a new bong, but they should not be the most important ones. If you’re in the market for a water pipe specifically to help you with smoking dry herbs, then certain features that will make it easier should probably top your list.

These features include placing a screen in your bowl or joint and packing it properly. If you’re hoping to buy an oil rig, it should have female joints capable of accepting any male joint so that you can use it with other pieces. Your best bet would be to buy a bong or water pipe that allows you to switch between a bowl and a water pipe attachment since both have their advantages and disadvantages.


Suppose you plan on using your bong or water pipe with buds instead of tobacco or cannabis flowers. In that case, some additional factors should be considered when buying. Even if the bong or water pipe is handmade, you should still ensure it can hold the right amount of smoke. It would be best to consider how easy it is to clean to avoid getting it clogged up and ruining your smoking experience.


The type of material used in a bong or water pipe will affect its durability, how long it will last, and how easy it is to clean. Metal and glass are durable materials that require more maintenance than resin, acrylic, and plastic. If you have a friend who has used a particular material before, ask them what their favourite was and why. Plastic, resin, acrylic and glass have advantages and disadvantages compared to other options like metal and stone.
