Ultimately, choosing a weed bong will come down to individual preferences. Some swear by glass bongs and hate using any other type. Others prefer ceramic. Then there are those who prefer acrylic or silicone. Some have no problem with the material of their bong and instead focus more on the design and performance.
Today, we’re sharing some tips on the different types of weed bong to help you decide which is the best fit for you based on material.
Choosing a Weed Bong
There are four primary materials available for the average bong: glass, acrylic, ceramic, and silicone. Each offers its own pros and cons. Here’s how they each compare.
These are by far the most popular type of bong, and for good reason, too. Glass bongs are incredibly easy to clean, durable and easy to heat. There are many different designs available, too, from coloured glass all the way to shapes and interesting details. If you’re using this type, make sure you keep it somewhere careful, however, as there is a very slight chance of cracks if the bong takes a hard fall.
Acrylic bongs are an affordable choice, with various styles and colours on offer. They get the job done just fine and there is no risk of cracks or other damage if they happen to fall off a table. On the other hand, this material can very slowly start to wear over time, which can affect the quality of your smoke.
Ceramic bongs are similar to glass in that they are easy to clean, durable and fast-heating. The thicker ceramic bongs are very durable - more so than glass in some cases. Many of these bongs feature both glass and ceramic features, giving you the best of both materials in one bong.
Then, there are silicone bongs. This material is fairly new in the world of smoking. Commonly used in baking, cooking and various other applications, it is has made its way to bongs and pipes as well. It is very durable and pretty much unbreakable. It is waterproof and easy to clean.
