How Do Bongs Work? – A Brief Introduction

5/5 - (1 vote)

A bong or water pipe is a glass tube or container usually fitted with a plastic bowl or slideable tray at one end and a smaller chamber at the other. It is used for either smoking marijuana/hashish, filtering out nicotine from tobacco smoke, cooling vaporized liquid at lower temperatures than an ice bong, or using nitrous oxide as a laughing gas. Its simplest form consists of two parts, one for inhaling and one for exhaling. 

The bong’s bowl, or “chimney,” fits over the top of the hose and has one or more holes for smoke to pass through. Some designs have a perforated water-cooling system on the tube itself. A larger chamber below the bowl is used for storage and may be linked with a screen to prevent small particles from being inhaled. The smoke or vapor is pulled from the smoker’s mouth into the tube, traveling down through the water.

When it reaches the bottom, it bubbles up through the water and is drawn into your mouth by sucking. The water level in the delta 8 shatter affects how fast and how cool the smoke will be when it comes out of the device. A small amount of water creates a more extensive “smoother” pull than a lot of water but also reduces how much you get inhaled at one time.

Importance of Bongs –

  • A bong has two primary components: a bowl and a stem. The bowl holds the cannabis or tobacco to be smoked, with an indentation or hole to hold the weed in place. The stem is hollow, allowing smoke from the bowl to travel up and into the body of the bong. 
  • A bong may also have an ice chamber attached to its neck just above the stem that meets the main room. An ice-filled section cools down the smoke before entering your mouth and lungs. 
  • When you take a hit from the bongs, you pull smoke from the bowl and into the stem. The stem runs to the main chamber, and all of the smoke travels to where it can be cooled before it finally ends up in your lungs. Filtered smoke is more pleasant than unfiltered smoke as it has less tar, but unfiltered bong hits also feel more substantial than filtered ones.
  • Bong smoking is prevalent among cannabis users, especially people who want to maximize the effects of their herb and minimize the psychoactive effects of THC.
  • Bongs promote a quick but mellow high, usually lasting between 9 and 15 minutes. They also can be used for other substances besides marijuana, such as shisha tobacco or another type of tobacco, nicotine, or even toxic gases such as carbon monoxide. 
  • A standard-sized bong usually holds about 0.5 ounces of solvent, between 500 and 1,000 milliliters, or a little more than 2/3 of a standard shot glass. The amount of smoke inhaled in such a short length of time is considerably more significant than the amount that would fit into the lungs at one time.

  • Bongs also cool the smoke down and filter out much harmful tar and irritant chemicals found in marijuana; it is also more pleasant as it has less tar. When you take a hit from the bong, you pull smoke from the bowl and into the stem.

Reasons for Using Bong –

  • Bongs can be used to smoke marijuana. Bongs allow the smoker to inhale cannabis smoke efficiently using a water filtration system. These systems are also referred to as a “waterpipe” or “water pipe bong.”
  • Setting a bong into an ice chamber makes the bongs faster at cooling the smoke and making it more evenly distributed because of the lower temperature.
  • Cannabis users use bongs to minimize their exposure to harmful chemicals and tar by utilizing ice-cooling methods. Ice chambers also cool the smoke for a smoother pull.
  • A bong can also be used as a makeshift pipe, as it allows the user to take a hit without having to smoke directly from the joint or a blunt.
  • A marijuana bong is an inexpensive way to try smoking marijuana without making a significant investment in purchasing an expensive and more complicated piece of equipment.
  • Water pipes are also an essential tool for “honey-leaf artistry” because they must cool down the smoke and make it more bearable.
  • Bongs are also used by people who want to smoke without the tar of regular marijuana cigarettes.
  • Another use for a bong is to be able to smoke other substances besides marijuana. For example, it is also possible to smoke cannabis out of a tobacco pipe (or any other smoking device) if you add water or ice, but it will never be as pleasant as out of a bong with ice.
  • Bongs and their various accessories have become very popular in popular culture, appearing in films and television programs repeatedly. 

Conclusion

More than likely, the first bongs were made from clay, wood, or metal. However, they were not the portable and “sturdy” wooden pipes that you know today. Instead, they were hand-cranked or hand-pumped contraptions that looked like something out of a comic book. They would be fashioned from clay and wrapped in leather with a small pipe sticking out the side for sucking cannabis smoke into the lungs.
