What is a bong?

A bong is a vase-like water pipe.  It consists of a mouth, a neck, a chamber, a downstem, a bowl and some have a carb to empty the bong of smoke if the bowl doesn't slide out of the downstem.  Bongs come in many different varieties and sizes, which vary from 19” towers to 6” shorties.

They are made from different materials like glass, silicone, plastic, metal. They can have attachments like carbs, ash catchers, and splash guards, all designed to improve your overall experience.

The key component to a blog is a chambe that is filled with water, and downstem that will draw the smoke from firing your herbal blend directly into the water.

Why would someone use a bong?

Because the chamber of the bong contains water, which is why it is often referred to as a water pipe, the resulting smoke you inhale is filtered and cooled.  The offers a really smooth inhale and a more vibrant taste of your prepared herbal blend.  

In addition, hot smoke can trigger a coughing reflex in your lungs, making it difficult to hold the cannabis smoke in your lungs. Cooling the smoke through the water makes you less likely to cough.  Some people even add ice to their bong to cool the smoke even more.

How To Use A Bong

There is a process for getting a bong ready to smoke.  It starts with using the right bong - one that is the proper size, clean, and easy to use and maneuver.  We will demonstrate the proper use and care of a bong using the small 10-inch Piranha clear glass beaker bong.

Piranha Clear Glass Beaker Bong / Water Pipe

The glass beaker base of this water pipe enhances filtration and allows for the smoke to cool before inhalation. Made with borosilicate glass, this beaker comes with a down stem featuring a built-in percolator and includes a bowl piece compatible with dry herb. This small bong also features an ice pinch with small points to catch and hold ice cubes, which is a must-have for those who enjoy extra-cool rips.

High quality glass, well made by craftsman and a pleasure to smoke!

Step
1

Fill the bong with water.

The water in the chamber of your bong is what cools and filters the water.  It does this by removing resins and ash that is pulled down into the chamber along with the smoke.  This causes the water to get dirty and stinky over time, unless you are using Piece Water in place of regular tap water.

The ingredients in Piece Water work to create a natural trap of smoke particulate. As opposed to plain tap water, the Piece Water formula works by encouraging more numerous molecule-to-molecule interactions. This molecule-to-molecule bond makes the solution viscous which, in turn, entraps the smoke by-products and stops resin from forming.

Add enough water to ensure the bottom of the downstem is submerged but not so much that you risk the water spilling out to get the bowl wet.

Grind your herbs and pack the bowl

Every good facial care routine starts with a deep cleanse to wash away dirt and makeup and all the other gunk that collects on your face curing the course of your day.  You need a cleanser that is powerful enough to wash away dirt, toxins, and dead skin cells but gentle enough that it doesn't dry out your aging skin.

The right cleanser won't dull your complexion but rather should bring out your natural glow.  Look for cleansers that don't contain harsh soaps and other chemicals known to cause harm to skin, such as parabens, lead or formeldahyde.  Look for cleansers that contain healthy fats lie shea butter to help moisturize your skin while it cleanses.

Piranha Aluminum Grinders

Piranha's "built to last and ready to shred,"namesake holds strong with its razor-sharp teethed grinders. They are a go-to choice for affordability, functionality, and variety. The strong magnets ensure the grinder stays together if dropped. Piranha grinders are made from high-quality anodized aluminum material, and the teeth never break.

How To Care for Your Bong

The best way to ensure you will enjoy your bong for a long time is to take excellent care of it!
If you don't keep your pipe clean, the water that has been trapping smoke, resin, ash and other particulates will turn brown and being to smell bad. The water can breed bacteria and mold, causing you to inhale them along with the smoke, potentially making you sick.  It is really important that you keep your bong clean!

 Below are two bongs after 40 uses and rinsed out with water.  The bong on the left used regular tap water in the chamber and the bong on the right used Piece Water in the chamber.

Frequently Asked Questions About Using a Bong

What are the parts of a bong?
CBD for pets is formulated to support everyday health and wellness for your best friend by promoting a sense of calm, supporting joint mobility, normal brain and GI function and helping to manage reactions to everyday stressors. 

A growing number of happy pet parents have reported welcome results for challenges associated with separation issues and noise aversion.
Is a water pipe the same thing as a bong?
All animals have an endocannabinoid system (ECS) and it regulates different bodily functions including mood, maintaining a sense of calm, mobility, supports physical comfort, helps manage everyday stressors and supports an overall health and wellness routine.  The ECS consists of cannabinoid receptors that the cannabinoids our bodies produce bind to and influence how well or not so well our bodies and organs work. CBD and every other cannabinoid from the cannabis plant interact with these receptors in our pets and in ourselves. 

While we share an endocannabinoid system with our pets it’s important to know that CBD products for pets is not the same as CBD products for humans. It is important to use only CBD products that are precisely formulated for pets and keep your personal CBD products for yourself. Many CBD products for humans contain small amounts of THC, the intoxicating cannabinoid from the cannabis plant. Dogs especially have more brain receptors for THC than humans do, so are more sensitive to amounts of THC. Animals are also known to be hypersensitive or in some cases allergic to certain terpenes that can be found in cannabis plants.  You can avoid these issues by using products formulated specifically for your furry friend.
Why would someone use ice in a bong?
Shopping for pet CBD products can be intimidating. Once you’ve narrowed down the type of product your pet prefers, whether chews or an oil, there are still so many products out there to choose from.

Levels of CBD can vary widely from product to product. Measured amounts of CBD based on your pet’s weight is key. Make sure the product you are choose works with your pet’s weight range.

Always choose a product that lists CBD and other active ingredients on the package as well as inactive ingredients for anything your pet might be allergic to. For verification of how much CBD is in each product, only shop brands or online marketplaces that offer test results on their website.

Be sure to review the directions for use section which should include how much of the product you should be giving on a daily basis.
