Whenever they needed some pleasure, bongs were always there for them. Bongs are so amazing that even the great Bob Marley has said “N’ keep ya’ very lucky you can smoke it in a bong/ When you smoke it in a bong, you are baked all night long”. Bongs are even considered as a workpiece of art often.
So, what a bong is?
Well, a bong is a water-filtered device to smoke. It actually produces a smoother “milk”, filtering the smoke through the water. It has three chambers.
First is the water chamber at the bottom, that holds the water. It filters the smoke to make it smoother.
The second is its long neck vertical tube. The smoke moves upwards, and the smoker inhales the smoke from this chamber.
And last but not least is the downstream. Now the downstream has two parts. It has a pipe which is dipped in the water and the bowl part flares to hold the dried herbs.
Glass bongs are readily available in wholesale and are one of the cheapest things to make your smoking experience better.
