One of the best ways to optimize your experience while smoking cannabis is dependent on the bong you end up using. But it can result in a really daunting experience because there are so many bongs in the market.

Whether it is your first or 100th time buying a bong, the number of choices can be quite paralyzing.

Because different factors like percolators, style, designs, glass, the thickness should come into place when you are making a choice. Here is a mini guide to help know your Bong lingo in the market.



There are 3 main types of styles to choose from, the straight tube, beaker bongs, and recycler. A straight tube would produce very dense smoke that will clear pretty fast.

A beaker bong has a larger volume and produces less dense smoke that is quite harder to clear. A recycler on the other hand is mainly used to smoke concentrates and it is called the name because it ends up recycling the water.

Beginners would mostly use straight or beaker bongs, but why shy away from experimenting.


This is a vital feature because it actually directly impacts how long the bong will last. A thick will last longer because it will be able to withstand falls and the likes.

But if you are not going to be moving around with the bong, you wouldn’t need to worry about the thickness. Just be confident you are not clumsy.

The thinnest glass you can get will be from 2mm to 3mm, the average is from 3mm to 4.5mm and excessively thick bordering on unbreakable is 5mm to 7mm.

But thickness actually reduces aesthetics so balance wisely.


Percolators are also an important factor but it isn’t as easy to compartmentalize as the rest.

It actually depends on the individual. But the properties most desired in a percolator are the smoothness it will provide because it filters from the drag of smoking through its tiny holes.

But steer clear of percolators with excessive holes although it might seem like a good idea at first. It might get very difficult when trying to clean the chamber.

With these properties in mind, you can simply visit a credible online bong shop that sells a wide variety of choice-able bongs online.

Make your smoking an experience.



Using alcohol as well as salt with a little drop of dawn dishwashing soap will clean it. Use the dishwashing soap to prevent the glass getting scratched by the salt. Welcome!
