As a user of bongs for five years I have built up lots of knowledge of what makes a great bong. Through trial and error I have also learned what you should avoid. I want my blog here to be really useful to smokers so I figured sharing my knowledge on glass bongs is the best way to do this!
After you have looked around and found the best bong shop to buy from it is time to start browsing those awesome pipes! If you want some advice on where to buy from then I suggest one of these two shops: http://www.herbtools.ca/ or Old Havana. Both have a great selection with the most competitive prices online, great head shops to buy from.
Now lets buy a bong!
So filter the bongs by the material you want, I suggest you only pick glass bongs as that is what I am covering here, the other types are for noobs! Now, the downstem that is normally a separate glass pipe that takes the bowl and delivers the smoke into the bong can actually come in a ‘flue’ design where it is non removable. This is an awesome design, it takes away the chances of dropping the downpipe and breaking it. So my first word of advice is to go for these designs.
Secondly I would only consider percolator bongs, my favorite type of percolator is the tree! I would get either a double or a triple tree percolator but that will cost you quite a bit more so it depends on your budget.
With all this talking about how fun it is to buy a bong, I feel I should remind you that edibles is much healthier, but judging the strength is very hard so I couldn’t recommend it. Check out quit now for some pretty good advice and tactics.
I normally pick my bongs up from the local market from one of the many stalls that sell bongs. But you can only really get hold of cheap plastic types and this time I wanted to spend a bit more and get a really special glass bong. Bongs from Lemon Smoke offered a really, really impressive range of glass bongs, I spent ages looking through all the pipes before I finally made my purchase. I wanted to find reviews for Lemon Smoke but I just couldn’t find any, so for that reason I am leaving them a personal review on my blog.
I went for a unbranded glass bong because they were so much cheaper than names such as Grace Glass, and the stats of the one I got seemed to equal up to those that GG had anyway, for for like £20 less! Overall I spent £70 on my order because I wanted to get a precooler too, I thought it was really cool how Lemon Smoke had all the sizing for their components and that made buying the precooler for my bong much easier.
I live in England so I checked our government policies before I went to buy a bong online, I was sure all would be fine but it is nice to confirm. Lemon Smoke also gave discreet postage on my glass bong just to keep everything private, which was nice.
I was just having a blaze and a scroll through YouTube and came across this crazy joint, was impressed and thought, damn, this is the kinda thing I want to fill my blog with! Props to this guy, it is nice to see some decent footage too, there is no excuse for low quality video these days!
This video takes me back to when my friends would roll a Tulip Joint, which is quite common in Amsterdam. I’ve never seen anything this crazy being smoked though.
Hey, I am an active forum member on many smoking blogs and I am creating this wordpress blog so that I can make updates on all of my new bongs! I really want to get a nice camera setup so I can make videos of these bongs as I often find some really nice bongs at HerbTools.co.uk – But I am not here to advertise certain headshops, I just want to show my new bongs! I might even put a few of my custom ones for sale.
