Shopping for a Bong on Amazon? The 19 best bongs on Amazon - No6 will blow your mind!
One of the first questions you ask when looking for a bong on Amazon is: Can you buy bongs on Amazon? Yes, you can buy bongs on Amazon, they’re sometimes known as water pipes as well. Water pipes and bongs, when talking about cannabis, are practically synonymous. So just be careful of this. I believe waterpipe is the American term, whereas Brits use the term bong. I’ve bought several water pipes in the past, as I have lived in a lot of places which didn’t have a headshop, and therefore buying a bong on Amazon was basically my only option.
It can be quite difficult to find a good water pipe in small British towns in the North of England, so I’ve ordered a lot of different weed paraphernalia including a bong on Amazon. These days you can even order some replacement tobacco shake, which looks like cannabis. Who am I to tell you about bongs? I’m a weed aficionado from the UK check out my Quora page, and I stopped smoking tobacco when I was 19. Almost exclusively since them, I’ve smoked bongs, waterpipes, eaten edibles, smoked vaporizers, and have every other way to smoke or take cannabis. I’ve created this comprehensive list for all budgets, all wants, and all needs. So, what’s the best bong on Amazon? Here’s our list of best bongs on Amazon:
We chose this bong on Amazon as our number one for a few reasons, but mainly it’s the price. At only £14.99 for a decent-sized, fairly strong, glass bong, there really wasn’t another option. It’s small, which is actually a good thing. A lot of people think the bigger the better with bongs, but this isn’t actually true at all. The bigger the bong, the bigger the lung capacity you need to take the hit. In fact, getting a big, expensive bong, can sometimes be a terrible idea, especially if it’s breakable. I’ve had this particular bong before, and the glass isn’t so weak that it will shatter at the slightest gust of wind. They even offer you a replacement if the bong arrives broken.
The only real disadvantage with this bong on Amazon is that it doesn’t include a gauze or a grinder. If you don’t know what a gauze is, it’s an essential part of smoking a bong. It’s a sheet of corrugated metal which you place in the bowl to stop your weed simply falling into the water. Thankfully, because it’s on Amazon, you can just add a gauze and a grinder to your order, and it will all come to around $35. So if you’re a first-time smoker of a bong, this is a great place to start. Or if you just want a decent bong that will serve you more loyally than any dog, but at a very fair price, this is the bong for you.
So why this bong?
I mean, just look at it. LOOK AT IT. It’s beautifully stunning and is made from high-quality glass. That means you can smoke your high-quality grass, from your high-quality glass, and feel cool while doing it. Have you ever taken a bad plastic bong out of your bag at a party and offered it to someone? What do you think they would say? What would they say, instead, if you pulled out this piece of art and offered them one? We all know what people would prefer, and that is one of the main reasons we’ve put this bong here. Another reason is that it’s not fragile, as it’s made from a stronger glass than a lot of cheaper bongs. Finally, we wanted to have some glass bongs on this list, because frankly, they’re better.
Silicone Handmade Crafts Adjustable Water Bottle, 5.5"-9.6" - Price $26.99
This “adjustable water bottle” is not really a water bottle, it is in fact a nice, portable, silicone bong on Amazon. It’s great for a couple of reasons, it’s under $30, making it a good choice for those on a budget. However, this isn’t actually that cheap for a bong like this, but the fact that it’s portable and can be shortened to fit inside your bag, and then taken out again when you want to smoke. This is a must-have purchase for all on-the-go stoners, alongside a stash bag, to make sure you don’t get put in any compromising situations while you’re out and about.
Zinc Alloy Filter Hookah Hose, JUMEIGE New Shisha Set, Shisha Gift Accessories for Filtration of Hazardous Substances (Gold)
This isn’t a bong on Amazon! I hear you screaming from the rooftops as you read this article. Well, true, it’s not really a bong, but it sings and dances like a bong, and is actually a little bit healthier for you than a bong, so……. We decided to include it on our list. It’s actually a mini-hookah pipe, and is different from a bong, as it has a filtration system, which actually takes some of the negative things associated with tobacco and cannabis smoke out, and is therefore considered to be healthier than a bong on Amazon. We included this because not many people would think of this as an option, but it’s basically exactly the same thing as a bong, except the fact that it’s a bit cheaper than a standard bong, and it’s healthier. So, what do we love about this “bong”?
FYLFC 7.8in Thickened Glass Filter - Price $23.99
This is what you would call an age-old classic when it comes to bongs. It’s an absolutely standard piece of equipment, made from glass which is important, but which will almost certainly be a bit breakable, regardless of the thickened glass claims. You’ll have to be extremely careful with this bong, but in terms of smoking, a glass bong on Amazon at this price will give you the same quality as a glass bong with the same features which costs $100. That’s why we picked this bong, and not a bong which does the same thing but costs 10x as much. It’s nice to splash out on a decent waterpipe every now and then, but if you’re looking for something to help you get into 2021 and you’re not looking to break into your bank, this is the bong for you.
This is another beautifully designed bong which we simply couldn’t resist putting on our list. It looks like something out of a science fiction film and smokes like one too. With plenty of 5-star reviews, you can see that this bong is a favorite amongst smokers. Although it can store water, again it’s not actually a water bottle despite what the Amazon description says. You can see the measurements on the picture above, and check whether it’s the right size for you. However, just remember, this bong is also a collapsible bong, so even if it’s too big to fit in your bag, you can simply take it apart and then put it back together again when you need it (just remember to take some water out with you.)

Optimal bong usage
For optimal bong usage, as mentioned before, we recommend getting a grinder with a kief catcher. This isn’t 100% necessary, as you can simply put a bud in your bowl and light it up, but the taste is much better with ground weed, and the taste is even better with a layer of kief on it. If you don’t know how to take a bong hit, we’re not trying to patronize anyone here, we just want to cover all our bases, then it’s fairly simple:
- Put enough water in your bong to cover the bottom of the bowl, which is called the stem. The stem extends into the bottom of the bong.
- Grind your weed up in a grinder with a kief catcher. Kief is what people call the small crystals which gather on buds.
- Put a pinch (to start with) of the ground up buds into the bowl, which absolutely must have a gauze covering the entrance to the water.
- Cover the hole with one hand, and with the other hand put a lighter to the bud.
- Begin to breathe in, don’t try and take any smoke back into your bongs now as there will be far too much and it will still be too hot. Instead, collect as much smoke as possible by gently inhaling.
- When you’ve finished the buds and they stop burning, cover the mouthpiece of the bong with one hand, and continue to cover the hole with your other.
- When you're ready, take whatever size hit you feel comfortable taking, while removing both your hands from covering the bong, hold the bong in the middle, take your finger off the hole, and inhale. Bongs will make you cough… a lot, especially if you take too big a hit. Just take little hits, and make sure you’re not destroying the smoking experience just because you wanted to take a massive hit of smoke. Once you’ve taken a hit, there will likely still be smoke inside, you can simply cover up both holes again and then take another hit when you like.
A grinder or no grinder, that is the question.
There are a couple of essentials that you will need to buy if your bong on Amazon doesn’t come with them. These include:
- A grinder
- A pack of gauzes
- Isopropyl alcohol
- Cleaning brush
You absolutely do need a grinder to use a bong on Amazon to its fullest potential. Trust me, the smoke experience from smoking a bong with buds inside compared to smoking a bong with ground-up buds is absolutely not even close. Not only do you significantly increase the flavor and the strength of the buds when you grind them up, if you make sure you buy a grinder with a kief catcher, then you can add bits of kief to the top of your bowl for an even better smoke. There is a fantastic range of grinders on Amazon.
What is a gauze and why should I use it?
You will also need to make sure that your bong on Amazon comes with gauzes. Gauzes are corrugated metal which stops your weed falling straight into the bong water and ruining it completely. If it doesn’t we strongly recommend that you order some with your Amazon order. Without a gauze, your other option is to use tin foil, but I’ve heard many conflicting things when it comes to using tinfoil to stop your weed falling into the water. Don’t leave it to chance, and just get yourself some gauzes.
Why do I need alcohol to smoke a bong?
Isopropyl alcohol and cleaning brushes go hand in hand, as both are used for cleaning. Bongs can get absolutely filthy, and it’s utterly essential that you keep yours cleaned. Don’t leave it to chance, get some isopropyl alcohol with your order, or at the very least make sure it comes with a cleaning brush. Bongs are notoriously difficult to clean, but we’ll talk about how to do it later in the article.
What are the best bongs to get from Amazon?
This article is going to cover all the different types of bongs, as well as which ones we believe you should be getting from Amazon. Before we start, the main question you have to ask yourself is what material do you want your bong to be made from? We’ve got an entire article on the differences between glass, plastic, and ceramic bongs, and as before, we still recommend getting yourself a glass bong on Amazon over the other two options.
The kind of bong you’re going to buy from Amazon would be a cheap, glass bong. There are obviously drawbacks with any option you choose, but if you invest in a cheaper glass bong and it breaks, you can just order a new one fairly quickly and for not a lot of money at all. However, this article is about every budget covered, so we’ve got some more expensive bongs on our list as well.
Conclusion - Best bongs on Amazon
We hope this gives you some good ideas for the best bong on Amazon for your needs. Amazon sold many bongs last year, and they are fast becoming one of the best places to buy paraphernalia from. You can buy CBD oil on there now, which is showing that stoner gifts are becoming easier to buy. We recommended two cheap bongs to start with, but we recommended some higher-end silicone bongs, as well as other materials. Smoking cannabis with a bong is much stronger than smoking it through a joint, so just be careful if it’s your first time. The cannabis industry is growing all the time, and so prices are going to keep going down. You can now get a fantastic bong at a really low price, and so we recommend getting one today! If you have enjoyed reading this article and ever wondered how you can get your products on Amazon then you might want to read about one of the top amazon courses.
