Bong Buying Tips: How to Select the Best One for You

Bong Buying Tips: How to Select the Best One for You

Bongs are one of the most popular ways to smoke cannabis. They come in various shapes and sizes, and choosing the right bong for your needs can be challenging.

That said, whether you are a seasoned smoker or a beginner, this guide will provide tips on selecting the best option.




When it comes to bongs, size does matter. They come in various sizes, ranging from small, handheld ones to large, towering ones. The size of the bong you choose will depend on your smoking preferences.

A larger bong is ideal if you prefer a more significant hit. However, a smaller bong is more practical if you're smoking on the go.



Bongs can be made from different materials, including plastic, glass bongs, acrylic, and silicone. Glass bongs are the most popular since they are durable and easy to clean. Acrylic ones are affordable and lightweight but not as durable as glass bongs. Silicone ones are the newest addition to the market, and they are ideal for those who are always on the go since they are virtually unbreakable.

Bong Material


Percolators are small chambers within the bong that help filter and cool the smoke. They break the smoke into smaller bubbles, increasing the surface area and cooling it. Bongs with percolators offer a smoother smoking experience and are ideal for those sensitive to harsh smoke.


Ice Catcher

If you are a fan of cooler hits, then look for a bong with an ice catcher. An ice catcher is a small chamber at the top of the bong holding ice cubes. When you take a hit, the smoke passes over the ice, which cools it down, resulting in a smoother hit. Bongs with ice catchers are ideal for those who prefer a cooler smoking experience that is less harsh on your throat.



Bongs come in various designs, from simple to intricate and ornate. The design you choose will depend on your personal preferences. If you prefer a more straightforward design, then a classic beaker bong is a good choice. A bong with intricate designs and patterns is ideal if you want something more ornate.



Bongs can range in price from under $20 to over $500. The price of the bong you choose will depend on your budget and smoking preferences. If you are a beginner, a more affordable one is a good choice. However, if you are an experienced smoker looking for a high-quality variant, you may want to invest in a more expensive piece.


Cleaning and Maintenance

Keeping your bong clean is essential for optimal performance and longevity. Glass bongs are the easiest to clean since they can be easily disassembled and washed with soap and water. Acrylic and silicone bongs are also easy to clean but can be more challenging to disassemble. When choosing one, consider how easy it will be to clean and maintain.

Cleaning Bong


Choosing the right bong can be overwhelming, but considering the above factors, you can find the perfect one for your needs. Whether you are a beginner or an experienced smoker, there is a bong out there that will suit your preferences and budget. By taking the time to research and choose the right type, you can enjoy a smooth and enjoyable smoking experience.
