Collection: Bongs

Bongs, also known as 'water pipes' are one of the most popular and common types of smoking device. Similar in style and usage to hookahs, bongs are primarily used for smoking tobacco and herbs and make use of water filtration to offer cleaner, cooler, and more flavorful inhales than alternative devices.

The word 'bong' has its origins in the Thai language, with the original word 'baung' meaning a wooden tube or pipe. Many people mistakenly believe that they are relatively recent inventions, but the truth is that traces of bong usage can be found going back hundreds of years. Historical findings show that bongs were being used over 2,000 years ago and have been used all around the globe, from Asia to Africa and beyond.

Originally, these water pipes were made from wood and ceramic, and they can technically be made from almost any material in the shape of an airtight, watertight container; they can even be made from random everyday items and foods like cardboard tubes and peppers. However, the most popular material by far is glass, which is long-lasting, resistant, and very easy to clean.

Water bongs have changed and evolved in many different ways over the years, with modern models being very different to the simpler, more primitive designs being used many hundreds of years ago. Modern bongs are made from high-quality materials and may also include additional features like percolators (or ‘percs’) of various shapes and sizes which offer additional filtration for smoother, cooler hits.

When shopping for a bong, every smoker will have their own needs and budget. You'll be able to choose from various materials, sizes, perc styles, and more. Percs all essentially do the same thing, but their different shapes and forms will have slightly different effects, with some offering the smoothest hits and others providing a little more drag.

Unlike other smoking devices, bongs make use of water to provide smoother, cleaner smoking. The use of water offers a full range of benefits. For example, as the herb or tobacco smoke is filtered through the water, it cools right down, offering smoother, gentler hits. Any heavy particles and various harmful toxins are also filtered out in the water, ensuring that the hits are cleaner and healthier, while the full flavor of the herbs is preserved.

Bongs are also much easier and more convenient than traditional forms of smoking. You don't need to waste any time with rolling papers and complicated techniques; simply pack in your herbs or tobacco, light it up, and take a drag.

In short, bongs offer affordable, reliable, efficient smoking solutions. They can come in various shapes and sizes, from simple straight tube bongs to more complex designs with multiple percs and additional features. So whether you're looking for a simple item or a more complex design, you’ll find it here at a great price.
