The Benefits of a Glass Bong

The Benefits of a Glass Bong

From joints, blunts, hand pipes, and glass bongs, you can choose how to smoke your weed based on preference. In Canada, the popularity of glass bongs has grown exponentially due to advancements in the water filtration system. This tried and tested smoking apparatus is ideal for both beginners and veteran smokers. Along with providing a superior experience, it carries a list of other benefits. Here are a few of them:


It’s Reusable and Eco-Friendly

One of the primary benefits of smoking from a glass bong is that they’re reusable and can last decades! Unlike joints, which requires a new purchase each time, glass bongs are a long-term investment. In addition, it reduces the need for rolling papers, making bongs eco-friendly and allowing smokers to enjoy their herb while reducing their carbon footprint.   

Easy to Clean

Glass bongs are made from Borosilicate glass, which is a porous material that avoids residual particles from sticking around and tampering with the hit. 

Glass bongs can be cleaned with Isopropyl alcohol and a toothpick. Being transparent, these bongs will allow you to see if any gunk has settled, which is when it’s time to scrape the residue and run it under hot water to get a bong good as new! 

Water Filtration

Although bongs can’t eliminate all carcinogens and other toxins, they do reduce the number of nasty by-products of combustion that end up in your lungs, as they are filtered through the water. 

While smoking, the water in the bong eventually turns sticky brown, which is a sign of tar filtration. Using an advanced percolator will produce smaller bubbles with a higher surface area will result in better filtration and smoke cooling. 

Adding an ash catcher to your bong acts as double filtration, trapping all ash and producing clean, smooth rips. 

Big Hits

As compared to other ways of smoking, bong gives a bigger hit. This might be overwhelming for new smokers but filling the bong with smoke completely is not essential; this allows them to start at a comfortable pace. 

Once ready, these bongs can provide some of the biggest and smoothest hits. The smoke in the bong passes through the water, which cools it down and filters it, making big rips that send smokers straight into the clouds!
