While smoking a bong is an excellent place to start, if you're unsure how to use one, we've got you covered. It's not nearly as complex as it appears, and the experience is unlike anything else.
Continue reading for a step-by-step breakdown of how a bong works.
How a Bong Operates
A bong is essentially similar to a glass pipe, except that it employs water to chill and filter the smoke, resulting in a smoother, more flavorful smoking experience.
Smoke is drawn through the water chamber, and while it does so, the water extracts detritus from the smoke, such as tar and ash, while also cooling it.
This implies that smoking a bong may be one of the healthiest methods of marijuana consumption, while also providing a more relaxing experience for your lungs, which is one of the primary advantages of bongs.
Preparation of Your Bong
To begin, fill the chamber of your bong with water. Generally, you pour the water into the bong through the mouthpiece, which is often a big hole towards the top.
You simply need to add enough water to completely immerse the downstem. Take care not to add too much or the marijuana may get moist.
Step 2: Grind the Herb and Pack it
It's now time to grind and package the marijuana. While there are several varieties of bongs available online, each with its own set of bells and whistles, this process remains constant.
To do so efficiently, the best option is to use a grinder. Place the marijuana in the grinder's teethed section.
Close it and re-twist it until it feels smooth.
Open your grinder carefully and add a pinch of marijuana in the bowl of your bong. Lightly press it down with something flat, such as the end of a lighter, but avoid packing it too firmly or you'll have difficulty removing it afterwards.
Continue adding until the bowl is completely full, and then insert the bowl into the downstem.
Step 3: Light a match and inhale
Now is the time to begin smoking from a bong. Light a corner of the bowl and, at the same time, place your lips on the mouthpiece and inhale.
In the water room, you will feel and hear bubbles. You are not need to pull violently; only be smooth and steady.
If your bong is transparent, you will be able to see the smoke go from the bowl to the water chamber and up. When the chamber is completely filled with smoke, remove the bong's bowl and inhale the smoke.
When you remove the bowl while inhaling, the smoke is forced up into your lungs, providing a stronger dose than with a glass pipe.
