I bought a bong

avatar

Hello, and welcome to my page!

I decided to buy a bong a few days ago, smoking through a pipe tends to be more harsh than I want to deal with these days. I remembered from back in the past that smoking through a bong or water pipe was always more pleasant than smoking a joint or a pipe.
I went to the local grow shop to see what they had available for smoking tools. They don't have a huge assortment of these kinds of things, but they do have a decent selection.

I looked at the prices of the various items and decided to go the inexpensive route. The glass bongs and waterpipes are 50 dollars and up, but the basic plastic tube bongs were 15 dollars, so that's what I went with. I wasn't ready to spend 50 bucks on a fragile glass pipe that could get broken too easily if it got dropped or something.

I decided to get the red acrylic bong.

The hole through the bowl stem is fairly large, so I wanted to put a screen in the little bowl that comes with the bong, but the screen won't stay in the aluminum bowl, so I decided to see what else I could put on the bowl stem. Since the stem is removable from the bong, and the bowl unscrews from the stem, it's pretty easy to change out the stupid little aluminum bowl for something better. I dug out my little pipe that I've had for 30 some years to see if the bowl would fit on the stem for the bong.

Interestingly enough, the threads are the same for both bowls, so the wood bowl screwed right onto the stem for the bong.

Of course, I had to test it out. I have several buds of White Widow that were given to me by a friend who grows them for his medical patients that want the high CBD-low THC cannabis. I keep the cannabis in a half pint canning jelly jar with a canning lid to keep it sealed. I dumped the water out of the bong before taking these pictures.

The low THC cannabis doesn't get me very stoned, but it does help with the body aches and stuff like that. I was pretty happy with how the bong worked. I didn't take any big bong rips or anything like that, because getting toasted wasn't the goal for that smoking session. I wanted to test both the bong and the buds to see what effect they would have on me. I'm careful about how much I smoke when I'm not familiar with the bud I'm smoking because high THC types tend to kick my butt way too easily, and I've gotten sick from it a couple of times. This bud agrees with me pretty well so I'll be getting more of it if I can. I'm also looking forward to trying my Cannatonic plant after it's done budding and harvested.

That's all I have for this post, thanks for stopping by to check it out!

Youre like me. I like to mess with things and modify to my liking. Right on going for the 15 dollar bong. Them fancy glass ones are nice but just like windows or mirrors, you gotta keep it clean. if not they look horrible. So there's maitenance. You got the better choice for right now. and who wants to spend money on stuff. LOok at Mrs Pretty. I broke her

So I took that thin glas piece (that to me ya dont need that extra piece to smoke; so I never used that extra piece. it did come in handy) I just bypassed everything like I would a catalitic converter. Poof I used tape and put the titanium tip together. It worls great! loolol and Ive been using about 2 weeks with no problem.

Nice I used to have the neon green one there :P A LONG time ago, back in college. Acrylic bongs are a lot harder to keep clean if you smoke as much as I do and the water needs to be changed out more often BUT if you fill it completely with ice it makes it even more smooth :)

Just be sure to dump the water out as it melts so it doesnt flood your bowl and soak the weed.

I have a Zong right now with a few disc shaped water diffusers. It increases the cooling and filtering effect, but my favorite thing to do is add an ash catcher for even more filtering and less cleanup later.

That does make sense. I have thought about using ice instead of water in the bong, but I would need to make ice cubes for it first. :-)

You should check the Wish app for smoking devices, I found a nectar collector a local shop was asking $100 for this nectar collector on the wish app it was $15. Every pipe I have gotten from the wish app so far has been totally worth it. Quality has been great too. I been impressed actually. As every other category it is hit or miss, but in the pipe category it has all be hits so far.
