How to Hit a Bong: A Beginner’s Guide



If you are new to the world of cannabis, you might be wondering how to hit a bong. A bong is a device that uses water to cool and filter the smoke from your herb or tobacco, making it smoother and more enjoyable. Bongs come in different shapes, sizes and designs, but they all have the same basic components: a bowl, a stem, a water chamber and a mouthpiece. In this blog post, we will show you how to hit a bong properly and give you some tips to make the most out of your experience.

What You Need

Before you start, make sure you have everything you need to hit a bong. Here is a list of the essentials:

  • Your favorite strain of herb or tobacco. You can use any kind of herb or tobacco you like, but some strains are more suitable for bongs than others. For example, indica strains tend to produce more smoke and couch-lock effects, while sativa strains tend to produce less smoke and more cerebral effects. You can also mix different strains to create your own custom blend.
  • A bong. You can buy a bong online or at a local headshop. There are many types of bongs to choose from, such as glass, ceramic, acrylic, silicone, metal and bamboo. Some bongs have additional features, such as percolators, ice catchers, splash guards and ash catchers, that enhance the filtration and cooling of the smoke. Choose a bong that suits your budget, style and preferences.
  • A lighter or hemp wick. You will need something to light your herb or tobacco with. You can use a regular lighter, but some people prefer using hemp wick, which is a natural alternative that produces less butane and more flavor.
  • Water. You will need water to fill the water chamber of your bong. The water acts as a natural filter that removes tar, ash and other impurities from the smoke. You can use tap water, but some people like to use distilled water, spring water or even flavored water for a better taste.
  • A grinder. You will need a grinder to break up your herb or tobacco into small pieces. This will help you pack the bowl evenly and ensure an optimal airflow and combustion. You can use any kind of grinder you have, such as a metal grinder, a plastic grinder or even your fingers.

How to Hit a Bong

Now that you have everything ready, it’s time to hit your bong. Follow these steps to learn how to hit a bong like an expert:

  1. Fill the bong with water. Pour water through the mouthpiece until the bottom of the stem is fully submerged. You don’t need more water than that, as it will only make it harder to pull the smoke. Make sure the water is clean and fresh, and change it regularly.
  2. Pack the bowl. Use your grinder to chop up your herb or tobacco into fine pieces. Then, load the bowl with enough material to fill it up without overflowing. Don’t pack it too tight or too loose, as it will affect the airflow and burn rate.
  3. Light the bowl while you inhale. Hold the bong in one hand and the lighter or hemp wick in the other. Place your mouth inside the mouthpiece and create a seal with your lips. Then, light the corner of the bowl and start inhaling slowly and steadily. Watch the smoke fill up in the chamber as you draw.
  4. Pull out the stem and let it rip. When you are ready to take the hit, pull out the stem from the bong and inhale sharply and deeply
