Bongs are now the most trending apparatus when it comes to the intake of psychedelics. It has been reported to be the easiest and safest way of injecting psychedelics. Right now, many people are now considering the option of buying a bong. This article entails a few things you should look out for when purchasing your piece. Shopping for a bong can be overwhelming.
You have your glass bongs, ceramic bongs, some are even made out of wood. But how do you know you’re getting the best of the best? To each their own, but if you want to get your money’s worth, then there are features that make for a handy bong. First, you should make sure what type of smoker you are and what your lung capacity is. A four-foot bong isn’t going to be very practical for someone who can only hold their breath for a few seconds. Below are qualities to check out for when buying a bong;
- A beautiful design
If you’re spending your hard earned money on a piece, don’t settle for something dull. Bongs come in so many different styles, and it won’t be challenging to find one that suits you. The appearance of your bong may seem irrelevant. After all, your primary concern is likely how well it’ll get you high. Therefore, consider bongs with some fancier rigs, additional percolators and ice catchers.
- Handy Bong Size
This is arguably one of the most important ones. Do you want a huge 3-foot monster that your friend has to light for you? Or do you want a sub 1-foot coffee table piece? Smaller pieces are easier to hide, and also easier to clean as they require less rubbing alcohol / other cleaners to do the job. Most people prefer a portable sized bong which and be placed on the table alongside the coffee cup. 1 foot and below seems to give most people fresher hits, and with modern percs, the smoke is perfectly cool and smooth.
- High-quality glass
Of course, you want a bong that’s going to last for long. Nothing sucks more than falling in love with your new piece, only to have it break days later. Again, there are a ton of different bongs out there. Some are made of plastic, and some are made of metal. While they each have their benefits, glass is by far the best choice. Not only do glass rigs offer a pure taste, but they’re also easier to clean. But something you should keep an eye on is the thickness of the glass. The thicker the glass, the longer it’ll last.
- Excellent percolation
The very important thing to look for in a bong with percolators is how well it hits. And if you’re purchasing your rig from a shop, then you can test it out right there. Just have them fill a few waters so you can pull and compare. Pay close attention to the bubbling action. The bubbling action should be smooth, and there should be little resistance.
- Easy to clean
Keeping your bong clean is important. For this reason, you want a piece that isn’t going to be too difficult to clean. Glass is by far the easiest type of rig to clean. Plus, it’s simpler to spot the areas that need the most cleaning. Do note that percolators are a pain to clean. So if you want something that’s not going to require a whole lot of effort as far as cleaning goes, go for a straight tube or beaker style.
Obviously, if your bong is made of a delicate substance like glass or ceramics, then it will be more delicate than one made of plastic or bamboo. However, you shouldn’t be discouraged from buying a glass piece just because of its breakability. There are many glass bongs that are quite sturdy and ideal for casual, everyday use. You know how you will use it, so just go with what suits your needs.
Lastly, once you’ve chosen a few selects, have the seller put water in them, and pull them and compare. Pay attention to the bubbling action. You’re going for little resistance, and a smooth bubbling action over a popping/chugging action.
