A bong is a water-filtration device that is used to smoke herb or tobacco. It can produce smooth and potent hits that are enjoyable and satisfying. However, if you are new to bongs, you may find them confusing or intimidating at first. Don’t worry, this guide will show you how to use a bong step by step, and answer some common questions along the way.
What You Need to Smoke a Bong
Before you start, make sure you have the following items:
- A bong: You can find bongs in different shapes, sizes, and materials. Some are simple and functional, others are artistic and elaborate. Choose one that suits your preferences and budget. You can buy bongs online or at headshops.
- Herb or tobacco: You can use any kind of herb or tobacco that you like to smoke. Just make sure it is dry and not too moist.
- A grinder: A grinder is a tool that helps you break up your herb or tobacco into small pieces. This will make it easier to pack the bowl and burn evenly. You can also use your fingers or scissors, but a grinder will give you a finer and more consistent grind.
- Water: You will need water to fill the bong and filter the smoke. You can use tap water, bottled water, or filtered water. The temperature of the water is a matter of preference. Some people like cold water, some like warm water, and some are fine with room temperature water.
- A lighter: You will need a lighter to ignite the herb or tobacco in the bowl
