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.
