A bong, also known as a water pipe, is a type of smoking device used for consuming cannabis or CBD-rich hemp flowers. It typically consists of a chamber filled with water, a bowl for holding flowers, and a mouthpiece for inhalation. Bongs come in various shapes, sizes, and designs, but all operate on the same principle of lighting on the flower end and inhaling the smoke from the mouthpiece.

The process of using a bong involves the following steps:

  1. Fill the base with water: The bong is filled with water to a level covering the bottom of the bong.
  2. Pack the bowl: The ground flower is packed into the bowl at the bong’s side.
  3. Ignite the flowers: The flowers in the bowl are ignited with a lighter or match while the user inhales through the mouthpiece. When the flame is applied, the user covers a small hole in the bong with a finger and inhales, drawing smoke into the bong’s chamber.
  4. Inhale and Enjoy: As the user inhales, smoke is pulled into the water to be filtered and cooled then after moving the finger, it exits the mouthpiece. This process helps to remove some of the harshness from the smoke, resulting in a smoother and more enjoyable smoking experience.
