Created centuries ago to smoke tobacco with, the modern day bong has come a long way! From tiny, portable bubblers, to massive bongs that hit extremely hard, bongs are one of the most popular ways to enjoy your Mary Jane. It's also one of the strongest ways to catch your high. Though the myth that smoking out of a bong is healthier than smoking a joint isn't completely true, it's definitely still worth lighting up your favourite water pipe in order to get that strong hit. Tall bongs in particular are popular because of the large amount of smoke that builds up inside the chamber.
Today bongs are made from a variety of substances. The most common is glass, followed by plastic, silicone, ceramic, acrylic, wood, and metal. Each one has different advantages and disadvantages. You can also always spruce up your bong with different accessories like a quartz banger.
The shape of your tall bong may vary, but it'll consist of the same basic parts.
Bongs are made from 4 separate pieces:
- The mouthpiece
- The chamber
- The stem
While the bowl is always made from metal, as that is where you place the weed to heat it, the rest of the bong can be made from any of the substances mentioned above. If you’re wondering how to take a bong hit, simply light the plant matter inside the bowl and then begin to inhale. This should make smoke appear inside the chamber, and the water will cool the smoke down and filter it some, making it far easier to inhale. For more filter of your smoke you can always find a bong with a percolator. Once you’ve built up the amount of smoke you want to inhale, simply remove your finger from the hole inside the stem and take the hit.
There's lots more to learn about bongs, but now let's dive into our list of favourite tall bongs!
