According to recent studies, It was proved that the use of bongs could reduce the harmful substances in Marijuana smoke.
When it comes to Marijuana consumption, there are various methods. Though it can be vaporized or eaten, most people rely on the smoking as their means of consuming marijuana. Bongs are known to be the most popular way of marijuana ingestion.
How Bongs Work
Bongs have different shapes and sizes. They can either be made from various materials such as Bamboo, Ceramic or glass.
Bongs work by passing smoke through water, thus removing various toxins and particulate matter that you might otherwise inhale.
Studies suggest that water filtration can be an effective way of reducing exposure to the cancer-causing compounds in smoke. Water also helps to cool the smoke, making it easier to inhale without irritating the airways.
Unlike marijuana itself, bongs are legal to buy in most countries and are often sold in dispensaries, novelty gift shops as well as online.
How To Use A Bong
Most, if not all bongs will have at least four parts: a bowl, a downstem, a base and a tube.
The bowl is where the dried herb is placed and is often removable. Once the herb is ground finely, the user will pack just enough to fill the bowl and then connect it to the downstem.
The downstem is a narrow tube that connects the bowl to the base where the water is held.
The base of the bong can be any shape but is usually of a round, bulbous nature.
The tube is the final part of the equation and acts like a chimney. Once the herb is burned (usually with a lighter), the user places his or her mouth on top of the tube and inhales the smoke.
To start the smoking process, press your mouth inside the opening of the tube, making a tight seal. Next, hold a flame to the bowl and burn the herb while simultaneously inhaling through the tube. This action pulls the flame into the bowl and helps to ensure that the herbal is fully lit.
If your bong has a carb (a small hole), make sure it’s covered before you start burning the herb. Cloud Chasers have a great selection of bongs and other marijuana-related products.
Once the tube is filled with smoke, you should remove the bowl, or if you have a carb, uncover it. This allows air to flow through the bong, pushing the smoke into your lungs as you inhale.
The recommended amount of water to use in your bong is between 1 and 1.5 inches. The temperature doesn’t matter, although many users claim that cold water provides a smoother hit.
