How to Choose the Right Bong for Yourself

Buying a bong can be an intimidating experience, especially if you’re a newbie to smoking. With so many options out there, it’s easy to get confused about what works best for you, which is why it’s always wise to invest some time in exploring these options to purchase a quality bong. You don’t want to end up with something cheap that breaks easily or doesn’t work properly. But how does one go about choosing the right bong?

Well, you have to focus on choosing a bong that has the appropriate thickness, material, size, and bowl. The quality of these aspects should be top-notch. Anything part that’s of low quality can hinder the performance of the entire bong.

This article provides a guide for choosing the right bong and goes over all the necessary details you should know before you set out to purchase one.


How to Choose the Right Bong

Bongs come in a variety of shapes and sizes. There are bongs exclusively made in a small size for people who are continuously on the go. Then there are medium-sized ones and large ones for people who like to smoke at home. The cannabis market is filled with different style bongs and accessories, and the bong size you want to buy completely depends on your preference. Let’s explore which one will best suit your needs.

Different Sizes

Portable Bongs


Mini bongs are made for people who’re continuously on the go. You can’t expect a traveler to carry a large size bong in their case. Mini portable bongs are perfect for smoking cannabis after getting off a long flight or after walking for long hours. Their portable size ensures they can easily fit in your backpack. That said, they do have drawbacks, which include decreased airflow leading to harsher hits due to small space.

Medium and Large Bongs

Medium bongs usually come in sizes between 10”-14”. They provide the size benefits of a portable bong and the smoke benefits of a large bong. Their ability to deliver the perks of both small and medium bongs makes them special for both travel and for normal use. Large bongs, on the other hand, are perfect for home use due to optimal airflow and great smoke filtration.

Types of Bongs

Acrylic Bong

An acrylic bong offers affordability and durability, but it lacks in performance. Don’t expect it to give off a high-quality smoking experience at a low price. Though durable and long-lasting, it doesn’t tick all the boxes when it comes to providing a good smoking experience.

Ceramic Bong

Ceramic bongs have been around for a while and are known for providing amazing taste and experience smoke-wise. Because ceramic is made from clay, stoneware, and earthware, it provides a neutral flavor. Moreover, with fewer complexities involved in their makeup, they’re not prone to damage or overheating, leading to better temperature settings.

Silicone Bongs

Silicone bongs are great for withstanding extremely high pressures and low temperatures without being damaged. Moreover, not only are they very easy to wash, they provide greater durability in comparison to ceramic and acrylic bongs.

This article contains some general information about the different types of bongs out there. However, there is more to just knowing the types and sizes of bongs when it comes to buying one.
