A bong, also known as a hookah or a water pipe, is one of the most common paraphernalia used mainly for smoking tobacco and other legal herbs. The main purpose of a bong is to make the smoke cooler before it enters the lungs of the smoker. In addition, it allows the smoke to accumulate so that the smoker will be able to inhale it faster. At present, several variations of bongs are available on the market and there are different materials that can be used to make a bong – like glass and plastic.
A glass bong is the favourite bong of many smokers because they can see the smoke inside, which they call the ‘milk’. In addition, glass has the quality of conducting temperature, which allows the water to stay cool for a longer period of time. However, glass bongs have some disadvantages. First, glass bongs usually weigh more than other bongs, which makes them hard to transport or move from one place to another. Another is that they can be broken easily; that is why they are just placed in a room.
The plastic bong is the choice of smokers who are always on the go. It is more portable and the bong user does not have to worry about breaking it. Furthermore, plastic bongs are easier to make and improvise. The negative side of it, though, is that it is more prone to emitting fumes, burning, and melting which can result in asthma or other respiratory problems.
Armed with these facts, it is for you to decide which bong can give a smoother and more satisfying smoking experience.
