Lets Talk Bongs

What is a bong

Used for smoking dry herbs, bongs utilize water in order to cool down hot smoke and to also filter out ash. They’re simple and effective, the go-to choice for most smokers. Usually, there are four main parts to a bong: the bowl where dry herbs are packed, the down stem that connects the bowl to the base of the bong, the water chamber to hold the water and the percolators that are used to further cool down the smoke.
