If you know the answers to these questions, you can start looking for the most suitable bong for you. When choosing, you must take into account the following points: the material used, the price.
The material of the bong
The most used materials for bongs are plastic, glass, ceramic, silicone and metal. When you want to have the best experience of smoking marijuana or hash in a bong, then choose a glass bong. These bongs are specially made to smoke marijuana and enhance its effects. Glass and ceramic bongs provide the purest smoking experience. Glass and ceramic bongs are of course fragile and that sometimes prevents some people from buying such a bong. Of course, you can also opt for a bong made from scientific glass or borosilicate glass. These types of glass are stronger than conventional glass and break less easily.
The advantage of silicone is that it is a light material and that makes it more comfortable to carry the bong with you. Silicone is a durable and quite resistant material. Silicone bongs are easy to clean and the material is flexible and versatile in use. If you opt for a metal bong, you are assured of a very robust and durable bong. However, a metal bong can influence the flavor of what you smoke.
Plastic or acrylic is versatile and bongs made from these materials often come in all sorts of interesting colors and designs. They are lightweight and do not break easily. In addition, they are also very affordable. Therefore, a plastic bong could be a good choice for a first bong. However, keep in mind that the taste and smoking experience is not as good compared to a glass or ceramic bong.
The price of the bong
You can pay as much as you want for your bong. Your first bong doesn’t have to be very expensive, there are also good quality bongs at a reasonable price. Beginners often opt for an acrylic bong, because they are the cheapest. But this might not be the most suitable choice because, as you could read before, the taste often leaves something to be desired. Your first experience, therefore, might be a bit disappointing.
To make the right decision, it is good to determine a budget in advance. About how much you are going to spend 25, 50 or maybe 100 bucks. A glass bong doesn’t cost much more than an acrylic one. Decide first how much money you are willing to spend, and then find a bong that best suits your taste.
