The more experienced smokers have probably tried many different ways to enjoy marijuana. If you are just starting out and would like to try something other than smoking a joint, bongs may be an ideal option.

In the cannabis industry there is a great variety of models and types of bongs, but if you don’t know which one to choose, don’t worry, here are some tips for you to take into account when choosing your bong.

1- Size

When selecting the size, keep in mind that with a large bong, the chamber is wider, so the puffs will be larger and cooler, while with a small bong, the smoke will be hotter and rougher.

Choosing the right size for you can also depend on whether you want to move it anywhere or not. If you prefer discretion, selecting a small size bong is perfect.

2- Material

You can get bongs in the cannabis market made of different types of materials, among the most common are those made of silicone, glass or acrylic, precisely because they are easy to clean and provide a pleasant experience.

You can also get bongs made of wood, bamboo, ceramic and metal, the latter being more robust and durable, but can affect the taste of your cannabis.

If you prefer a glass bong, you can choose those made of borosilicate glass material, as they are more resistant.

To choose the material of your bong, it is ideal that you define the use you want to give it, if you would like to take it with you when you go on a trip or simply use it at home.

3- Design

Just as there are, different types of materials with which to make a bong, you can also get different models, ranging from the simplest to the most unusual.

You can get among the most popular designs, the bongs with carburetor, bong with straight tube, with round base, with percolator and multi-chamber.

For a beginner, it is ideal that you start with a simple and small model that you can easily use to enjoy your plant or concentrate.


Select the bong that best suits your tastes and research a little more about the advantages and disadvantages it offers you. Take into account how often you will use your bong and, as mentioned before, whether you want to carry it around. Budget is also important when choosing your first bong, as some are more expensive than others are.

So, take note of all these aspects, as they will help you decide which bong is best for you.
