  • What is a bong? 
  • In simple words, a bong is a device used to consume cannabis. The purpose of a bong is to cool down the smoke before it reaches your mouth. This purpose is accomplished by filtering the smoke through more than one chamber of water. However, you will also find bongs using ice instead of water. These are easy to use and offer an excellent smoking experience. 


  • How to use a bong? 
  • The process is very simple. All you need to do is light the weed packed in the bowl of the bong. Then, suck or inhale from the mouthpiece. As you notice smoke in the chamber, remove the bowl and stem. Continue the process until you are fully satisfied with your session. 


  • Why should you use a bong over other methods? 
  • We are not against any methods of smoking weed. But bongs are just a bit more favorable. And we say that because bongs offer a smoother hit. Whereas, other methods like joints and pipes release harsher smoke. Also, bongs spare you the hassle of rolling a joint. Thus, they are preferred and loved by our users. 


  • What is perc? 
  • Short for the percolator, it is something that bubbles when water passes through it. It is more like a chamber or chambers of water. These chambers of water are the identity of a bong. Overall, a percolator aims to break up the smoke, filter it via water, and offer a smooth hit. 


  • What is a bowl? 
  • A bowl is the most important part of your bong. It is the part where you put your weed. Concentrate bongs have slightly different bowls than traditional ones. But their purpose remains the same. The bowl is attached to the downstem which further leads to the perc and delivers the smoke to the stem and into your mouth. 


  • What is a downstem? 
  • A downstem is a piece that connects the base of your bong. It is pulled from the bowl. Sometimes, a downstem might have an extra element of a vortex but overall, the purpose remains the same.
