About A bong
Like I promised if you’re reading about a bong for the first time because of my readers I have
adopted a pattern of writing that sheds a little light on some of the things I write about in other to
give a broad and wider range read by individuals who might not know that the item or process I
talk about, as I have often gotten messages in the comment section enquiring to know about the
subject matter. no wasting of time let’s dive into full details of what a bong is.

A bong is a filtration device generally used for smoking cannabis, tobacco, or other herbal
substances. In the bong shown in the photo, the gas flows from the lower port on the left to the
upper port on the right.
In construction and function, a bong is similar to a hookah, except smaller and especially more
portable. A bong may be constructed from any air- and water-tight vessel by adding a bowl and
stem apparatus which guides air downward to below water level whence it bubbles upward
during use. To get fresh air into the bong and harvest the last remaining smoke, a hole known as
the “carburetor” or simply “hole”, somewhere on the lower part of the bong above water level, is
first kept covered during the smoking process, then opened to allow the smoke to be drawn into
the respiratory system.
How to Use A Bong
I will like to state here that in some countries, Bongs are proscribed as illegal and can’t be used,
while in some countries people tend to call bongs an entirely different name and have not been
proscribed illegal, countries like Japan, Taiwan, etc. due to health implications some of the
materials used in making bongs can cause health issues with cancer, throat soar, etc. In Taiwan
the locals use bong made from a plastic sports drink bottle which when heated (for the bong to
function well, it needs some level of heat) releases some not-so-healthy chemicals that contribute
A bong Contains two main components, the layer, the smoke stem, and the main container which
carries the bong content and is always the biggest part of the bong. Put some level of water on
the bong container, and a put aluminum fold on top, your preferred type of flavor to help with
changing the smell of the cannabis as this remains the sole purpose of using a bong to inhale
cannabis, then coal, and add the cannabis on top of the coal also make sure the aluminum fold is
punctured, as sizable holes as many as possible to enable the cannabis to mix with the water and
flavor below, then place your mouth at the end of the stem, which always has a hallow hole that
links the container out.
Use your mouth to drag as much as you can as this will keep the coal alive and the cannabis
burning, Inhale just like conventional smoking and exhale, till you are satisfied.
Home Made Bongs
It’s also possible to make your own bongs at home, though it’s advisable to get one from a good
the manufacturer or avoid using anything plastic to make bongs the heat associated with using bongs
can burn that plastic which is made up of chemicals that are not good for one’s health, as this
remains some of the reasons bongs were banned in some countries as high rates of cancers were recorded
and a good amount of these people use bongs made of plastics.
Bongs are just pleasurable means of smoking cannabis, funnily it has been around for a long,
though it has just gained acceptance recently, it was revealed that 2400 years ago, Scythian tribal
chiefs used gold vessels to smoke cannabis and Opium. according to Wikipedia, the kurgan was
discovered when construction workers were clearing land for the construction of a power line
